Posted on June 16th, 2021 by Kelli Kelly

Greetings Farm Fans - 


  • Please remember to bring a reusable shopping bag or tote to transfer your produce.  If necessary, you can take your box and/or meat bag home but we ask that you return them to your pickup location so we can reuse them in future weeks.
  • New pickup location in the Carson Valley!!!  For the duration of the season, our public pickup location in the Carson Valley is the Douglas County Library.

Fruit Bread of the Week

The wonderful lady bakers at Lattin Farms are going to LEMON-Town!  We are pleased to offer three of Lattin's most popular bread varieties this week: Lemon Poppyseed, Lemon Lavender, and Lemon Raspberry!

Coffee of the Week

I'm so thrilled to tell you about this week's delicious coffee blend... We are calling it: Kelli's "Save Ferris" Blend.  1. Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a timeless movie classic.  2. This blend features 75% Ethiopia du Feres coffee and I couldn't resist the pun.

The "Save Ferris" Blend is a mix of 75% Ethiopia du Feres mixed with 25% Colombia Medellin.  Colombia Medellin brings rounded flavors of dark chocolate and  black cherry with a rounded "orange" acidity. The Ethiopia du Feres brings flavor of Cherry Cordial, Blueberries & Cream, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, Brandy, Blackberry Cider & Assam.  Together they make a truly amazing blend!  This berry bomb has impressed Telegraph Coffee and San Francisco Coffee Roaster's owner so much that he has declared it his FAVORITE coffee around!

Farmer Update

We seem to have hit a bit of a production wall this week!  The high desert temperatures has caused some of our farmers crops to bolt (go to seed).  Other varieties are almost ready but just not quite to the point of reliable harvest.  Though my farmers feel confident that we are just a week or two away from some of the more popular produce items (TOMATOES)!!!

Scott Goodpasture at Pioneer Farms keeps harvesting huge amounts of cabbage and kohlrabi.  This week he is adding Broccoli into the mix!  The Desert Farming Initiative has the first early availability of summer squash and red spring onions (limited quantities).  And Team Sammons has increased their spicy rocket arugula.  The long and short of it is that we will continue to bring produce in from small-acreage farms across the Sierras for another week or so.

We hope you have a wonderful week and as always, Thank you for your support of local family farmers!
