Bring your family and friends to visit the farm on Sunday, October 15th from 11am-4pm. You’ll have an opportunity to tour the fields, learn how we grow your food, watch cooking demonstration, enjoy kids’ activities and more! One of the true benefits to CSA is getting to see exactly where your food comes from!
This week’s volunteers are:
They’re here! Our new CSA tote bags are always available for sale at pick-ups. The new bags are only $5!
NOTE: If you’re not planning to buy a bag, please bring a bag with you to take your veggies (and other products) home.
Dairy & egg & meat shares:
To those with milk (goat or cow) or egg shares: please bring your [rinsed] milk jars back, as well as your empty egg cartons, so Goodale can re-use them.
Fruit shares will continue for those that get them. One bag of apples/pears per share.
We will have replacement bags of fruit for the members who received damaged/bruised fruit and requested it.
We will have a new delivery of assorted small batch S & V Jams this week – $8 / jar.
No vendor this week.
Notes to all:
Please remember to sign in! Occasionally a volunteer is distracted and forgets to insist, please try to remember yourself. Signing also reminds everyone exactly what you get which streamlines the process.
And please let us know if you can’t pick up your share. We will do our best to work out a plan for an alternate pick up time for you, but even if you are definitely are forfeiting, please just drop a line (email, text, phone call, Facebook message, etc). We cannot hold/save your share for you if we do not hear from you by 7:59 – and yes we do check email and answer the phone all throughout pick-up hours.
Storage: In a cool, DARK place. Uses:Cooked. When to use: Within a week.Butternut Squash – These butternuts are wonderful in soup or roasted in chunks. Try one of this week’s recipes.

Scallions – For salads, soups or grilled. Just great flavor and crunch!
Storage: In an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Within a week.
Garlic – This hardneck variety is extremely special. It’s the closest veg we have to “gold” on the farm because the seed is so expensive and we only grow a little bit. Enjoy! You can’t find this type in stores.
Storage: On the counter. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use:Within a month
Red Kale – The very best kale variety for salads because the leaves are so tender. Also wonderful gently steamed and dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, fresh raw garlic and salt to taste.
Storage: In an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Within 5 days
Parsley – Brighten up any soup or salad! Freezes very well just as-is in a ziplock. I pull out a bunch and roughly chop it before adding to soups all winter long.
Storage: In an airtight (plastic) bag in the refrigerator. Uses: Raw/Cooked. When to use: Within 5 days.
Red Tomatoes – This may be the last week for our red tomatoes so savor them!
Storage: On the counter. Uses: Raw/Cooked.When to use: Now!
Acorn Squash – These winter squash are for eating! You can keep them on your counter for about a week as decoration — no longer than that! They are not the storage variety, so they will deteriorate in quality after a little while. Don’t be afraid– they’re pretty easy to cut in half with a large, sharp knife once you remove the stem. They are delicious roasted. Try it!
