 Greetings!

SPRING FEVER,  it's contagious! And yes, I have it!

This week we are excited to feature the first local asparagus of the season!

Asparagus is in almost every basket this week and is available as an add-on. It will be available in the market Wednesday afternoon.

We also have the first local rhubarb coming in Wednesday at a fantastic price! While we have to wait a few more weeks for local strawberries, we do have a lower price on non-Driscoll strawberries this week (see below).

Cinco De Mayo is this Friday, so we have cilantro and limes on sale. Avocadoes and queso fresco cheese are in abundance. We have some exciting sale items this week so please be sure to check out the specials below.

Oh my gosh, I can't wait to taste that first asparagus. So, into the kitchen with you, play this song (Fever by Scotch and Soda), crank the volume WAY UP, pour yourself a glass of wine, and get cooking!

Responsibly foraged ramps & fiddleheads are still available this week but enjoy them while they last as they have a very short season.

Farmstead Cheese
Mozzarella Style &
Italian Parmona
Farmstead cheese is made on family farms using organic methods. They produce Raw Milk Cheese from Grass Fed Jersey cows, using toxic-free farming methods like our forefathers did a century ago. Their healthy cows are never force-fed to produce more milk than they were designed to produce. This is one of the reasons why Farmstead Natural Cheese is so delicious and nutritious.

Mama's Little Yella Pils 

Oskar Blues Brewery

Longmont, CO
SALE Price $10.43
Regular Price $11.59 

Pilsner, 5.3% ABV, Bitterness: 35 IBUs 

Czech Out Your Mama! Oskar Blues' Mama's Little Yella Pils is an uncompromising, small-batch version of the beer that made Pilsen, Czech Republic, famous. Unlike mass market‚ "pilsners‚" diluted with corn and rice, Mama's is built with 100% pale malt, German specialty malts, and Saaz hops. While it's rich with Czeched-out flavor, its gentle hopping (35 IBUs) and low ABV (just 5.3%) make it a luxurious but low-dose (by Oskar Blues standards) refresher. 

6-pack, 12oz cans

Recipes
Spring is the season to take full advantage of the subtle, grassy flavors of asparagus and this easy sauce comes together in minutes.
Green Bin Reminder
Many of you may have noticed we are using more cardboard boxes lately because we are missing many of our green bins.

If you regularly receive an order, please remember to leave your green bin out for our drivers to pick up.

If you are not planning to order for a while and can not return the bin to our market, we are happy to stop by and pick it up. Please email us at info@berkshireorganics.com

Cardboard boxes can also be returned to us. Thank you!
