Greener Acres Farm:  Last Minute Addition -- CHESTNUTS !!


Last Minute Addition — CHESTNUTS !!

Farmer Cathie at Green"er" Acres Farm, spent the morning playing squirrel !! She gathered 21 pounds of Chestnuts from the trees on the farm. There are still more on the trees, if the squirrels don’t beat her to them.

We are offering them in half pound and pound bags. A seasonal item, they are only available for a short time in the fall, and as we mentioned, you have to beat the squirrels to them.

If you have already placed your order for the week, no worries, you can simply go into your order and edit it, or simply place a second order.

We will be trying to gather Shagbark Hickory nuts this week (again, if we can beat the squirrels to them) and we soon being gathering Black Walnuts.

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of Sept 24 2017


Wow what a hotspell, ground is really drying up but still a way ahead of last year. Greenhouses are really too hot, can’t get the heat out of them. But it means lots of ripe tomatoes, the yellow plum type, red slicing and jumbo beefsteak.

I look for the orders friday morning to pick for the 4pm arrival time. You can leave me a msg if you plan to pick up at a time more convenient, sat or sunday.

Eggs are back to normal pricing, thanks to all for coming last week with extra orders. Will hope to see you this week too!

The young Perpetual Green chard is really yummy and tender. We had a full bed of it in the greenhouse over the winter, it went to seed and self-propagated a month ago or so. Now is prime condition for salad greens or sauteing, steaming, soups. All leaves no stem.

Also now ready are new crop carrots, beets and lettuce, to add to the squash, tomatoes (including Beefsteak), garlic, cilantro, parsley, watermelon, chives, Russet potatoes, onions, kale, spinach and arugula.

In the fruits department: apples, blackberries, pears, asian pears, and tomatoes.

Special this week: Beef roasts 15% off listed price. Most are around 3 to 4 lbs. Try cutting in steak slices, marinating and barbequing. I did one like that last nite, a sirloin tip roast which is fine grained, no fat, and it was tender and flavourful.

Meats are still available in good selection. If you want roasting chickens for next winter, please give me your order and deposit of $5 per bird. I have beef, pork, lamb and goose in the freezer.

I’ve posted some good content on my facebook page lately, if you haven’t friended me, please do, you’ll see a tidy collection of really current sources on the climate, and some fun stuff on farms, food and animals!

Naomi Klein posted a tender essay about the family vacation this summer on the Sunshine Coast, smokey and tarnished by the huge forest fires raging out there.

New Field Farm's Online Market:  PLEASE READ REGARDING ACCOUNTS


Greetings,

Fall is here, October is days away, the leaves are starting to turn, and it feels like July. Go figure. And we’re still irrigating!

Where’s the garlic? I have to go through what remains and set aside some for planting. Hopefully, after doing that there will be more to offer.

For those whose funds are close to gone in their account you can use up what remains and then pay by the week from now until the end of the season.

For example – if you have $10 left and you order $20 worth this week you can pay for the difference with a check or cash. For future orders this season you can pay by check or cash when you pick up.

Checks should be made out after you pick up because the final total may differ from the original total on the invoice.

For those who pick up at Union Mill payment should be mailed to Tim Winship, PO Box 143, Temple, NH 03084. Checks should be made out to Tim Winship

Questions? Comments? Please let me know.

Thanks,
Tim

Champaign, OH:  Way Down Yonder In The Paw Paw Patch


Because you knew it was coming…because of this big news from Valley View Woodlands!!

I wanted to let our fellow market members know that Valley View Woodlands has just listed our pawpaws for the first time.  Our pawpaw orchard is finally coming into maturity, and this is our first real harvest.  The varieties we planted were selected for size and taste.  I’m sure anyone who tastes them will agree—they are delicious!  They are currently the world’s hottest food trend.  In recent months they have been featured in many articles, including a cover story in a gourmet magazine. 
 
Eaten fresh with a spoon, or used to make ice cream, mousse, or smoothies, people love the banana-mango flavor.  Check the market for an ice cream recipe. It’s a tropical treat we can grow right here in Champaign County.  The colorful pulp is very nutritious, ranking with oranges and bananas in vitamins and minerals.  It is also loaded with anti-oxidants.  There is also currently research going on involving pawpaws’ cancer-fighting properties.
 
One other exciting note is that by next week we hope to have pawpaw trees for sale.  These are trees we have grown from seed.  We will feature grafted varieties—they are grafted like apples to propagate known improved cultivars.  Seeds collected from our orchard will also be available so that folks can start their own trees.  We will send out another notice when they are available. 
 
Thanks to our fellow market members for their support!
