Le Menu (what's cookin'?)

NEWS FROM THE FARM AND RECIPES

Wow!  Summer's here.  That means some tasty greens!  Colorado has the best vegetables because of high altitude means better sugar production.  This week, we are really happy to present our spring sprouts and fava greens.  Give them a try on your sandwiches and salads, but also in your cooked pastas and sauces, in your eggs (have you tried our duck eggs?), or just steamed up on their own. 

We raise our sprouts in soil and in the sunlight (not hydroponically and in the dark like other farms), so expect lots of flavor!

Rat update: for those coming into the middle of the story, we adopted 3 baby field mice who were abandoned by their mother.  This week, they have all opened their eyes, learned to eat some grain, and are nearly ready to be wild rats out on the farm.  Rats are important to any ecology, and especially to agroecologies.  We treat all our animals - wild and domestic - with a high degree of compassion.
