SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Thank you all for a great start to the season! We have heard so much good feedback from you, and aside from a few first week hiccups, it has been a smooth start, so thank you for your involvement.

We love to see photos of what you’re making on social media, please tag us if you post so we can share! If you aren’t following along yet, our Instagram is @wintergreenfarm and Facebook is Winter Green Farm. We do post actively on our Instagram feed with market updates and daily life on the farm.

Please remember to keep practicing safe social distancing when you pick up your share. Masks are recommended, and we will have hand sanitizer available at each pick-up location. We will provide clean pens to check your name off,  but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. Also please take all of the veggies in your box with you this year, and if you are sharing with someone make arrangements to do that outside of the pick-up site.

Half-Share folks! Those of you receiving the 12-week share will begin this week. 

If you are getting a box this week, your name is on the checklist. Please remember to checkout off so we know you got yours. If your name is not on the checklist, it’s NOT your week! Please do not take another members box. Please refer to your delivery info, and if you have any questions give us a call at the farm at 541-935-1920 or send an email to folks@wintergreenfarm.com.

WHAT’S IN YOUR SHARE THIS WEEK

  • Red Russian Kale
  • Radishes
  • Strawberries
  • Collards
  • Turnips
  • Lettuce

SOME SITES ONLY

  • Peas
  • Pac Choi

For those of you who are new to our CSA, we don’t always end up harvesting veggies in equal amounts. If your site didn’t get peas this week, you will get them next week. Our office gnomes are keeping track, don’t worry!

Harvesting in the June rain means mud, but these guys are still smiling!

WHAT WE’RE MAKING

Although some of you reported goodies like strawberries and peas didn’t make it to the table because they got gobbled up so fast, we are including the recipes that summer is made for.

A pretty low-fuss fermented side-dish. Great for barbecues.

Bok Choy Kimchi

More great bbq sides:

Quick Collard Greens

Red Russian Kale and Red Cabbage Slaw

And for dessert… Like a light, fluffy strawberry cloud. 

Strawberry Mousse

With gratitude,

Bronwynn,  Linda and your Winter Green Farmers

    • Thanks Stephen! We couldn’t do this work without such supportive members like yourselves. Thanks for sharing so many seasons with us and for sharing our program with many lovely families. Looking forward to sharing yet another bountiful season with you all!

  3. Hello! After a many year hiatus I am LOVING being part of your CSA again!!! I have a stupid question about the peas. Are they shelling peas? Or peas to eat in their entirety? thank you!! 🙂

    • There are no stupid questions! We’re so glad to have you back in the farm family. The peas you are receiving are Snap Peas and you can eat the full pod of crunchy deliciousness! I do know that my grand girls like to open them up and eat the peas one by one, so you can really do either!
