Ryan and I want to wish all of you a wonderful holiday season full of joy, happiness and rest as you make time for precious family and friends. Again, we are grateful beyond words for your support in 2012. We know we are blessed and strive to bless you in return by continuing in our craft of farming! We also want to acknowledge our beautiful and hard-working staff.
We still attend two markets a week and make occasional runs to the grocery stores. We hear that a storm is coming, which may mean the end of harvesting any of our yummy greens! In that vein, if any of you were interested in some fresh and yummy collards or kale, we'll be selling them Saturday (Boyne City library & Traverse City Building 50). The list of available items are in the column on the left!
If you are interested in a 3/4 bushel box of carrots there are between 22-30 pounds in a box. Price for firsts is $1.50 per pound. Price for 2nds (only difference is that they are misshapen) is $ .75 per pound. You can keep carrots well in a refrigerator or in a garage or cold room that doesn't freeze. 34-45 degrees is best, kept in the box, with the plastic liner loosely covering them. They stay crisp and sweet for about two months. People have also told me that they like to blanch them and then freeze them in discs or sticks for much longer storage.
We will have carrots through February. PLEASE email us if you want a box of carrots. Specify 1sts or 2nds we'll meet you at the farm market (or farm) with them.
We need orders ASAP for this week's markets so that we have plenty of time to pack them.
Thanks so much for helping us sell our wonderful veggies. We truly appreciate your business! Also, if you have a friend who you think would enjoy our farm news, recipes and fresh veggies and other offerings, please forward our newsletter.
Peace & Joy in the New Year! ~
