Week 13 (A-Week) Share List and Farm News

Share items for Sept 2, 5 (best guess in advance):

Edamame (soybeans), 1 plant pick the pods off yourself – it’s not hard – then steam them with salt for a great snack that kids and adults love. The plants are mostly dead- this is the stage that they are meant to be harvested at.
Tomatoes
Cherry and grape tomatoes, 1/2 pint
Onions, 2 (red and yellow torpedo type)    
sweet corn
mixed color Sweet peppers, 6
Swiss chard OR Purslane, 1 bu
Purple potatoes, 2 lb

Fruit share: 
Plums and Donut peaches

Flower share: 
zinnias, amaranth, sunflowers, celosia, etc.

Egg share: ½ dozen pastured eggs

Cheese share: 
Sprout Creek Farm (www.sproutcreekfarm.org) is a new addition to our Cheese Share program. They are a non-profit educational farm located in Poughkeepsie, Duchess County. I met them at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival in October, and had a chance to enjoy their cheeses there – we hope you will too!

Toussaint (too-sanh):  A raw cows' milk cheese with a distinctive Alpine flavor and a smooth tight texture, it becomes complex and peppery with age. Aged 5-7 months. Place winner in International Cheese Contest 2008.

Kinkead: This semi firm cheese is savory and sharp with a hint of pungency. Dense and creamy, Kinkead is washed in the beginning for extra flavor, then aged to perfection in our ripening rooms. Raw cows' milk cheese, aged 6-8 months

MEAT SHARE:
 one whole Garden of Eve-grown organically-fed, pastured chicken, AND one lb ground Wagyu beef, AND one Long Island duck breast raised on the Peconic Bay a stone’s throw from Garden of Eve, AND one bag frozen broccoli /cauliflower/beans (a bonus extra).
