Friends of the Farm-
Happy Friday and welcome back to another week of Live Oak Farm CSA...
This week marks our last of our current Summer quarter of CSA. Take a peek below for our FALL calendar, launching without delay in its first week next Friday, August 4th. Current members look out for renewal communication & billing in the week ahead, and new members welcome!
A fan of our weekly produce boxes? Share with friends, family, coworkers or neighbors! We thank you for supporting our farm throughout the year! It's our honor to feed your families with our organic produce each week.
For our featured recipe this week we highlight our first crop of Tomatillos and Lemon Basil in an aromatic & summery Tomatillo Basil Shrimp Stir-Fry. Once you make the base sauce, you can add to grilled fish, roast chicken, steak tacos, or anything else that comes to mind. Bright & fresh, this recipe is great for the warmer days of the summer season in front of us now.
Lastly, we welcome you to enjoy our weekly music playlist.
We lean on some of the groovier instrumentalists this week- Jimmy Smith, Grant Green, Johnny "Hammond" Smith, Gábor Szabó, Cal Tjader, ect. Collectively we settle into a mid-summer vibe of jazzy guitars, smooth organ licks, and melodic vibraphone covers and originals. To compliment, there is also a triple dose of artists brought together by the Fania record label; a well established name for Cubian & Dominican-led salsa music largely culminating from the 1960's and early 1970's. Artists such as La Lupe, Mon Rivera, Willie Colón, and Héctor Lavoe are represented in this week's mix. Heavy percussion, crisp horns, and sultry syncopated rhythms are sure to beat the heat and get you dancing into your weekend. Enjoy!
All our best from the farm,
Tom & William and Live Oak Farm team
