Greeting Farm Fans and Happy December!
Welcome back from our brief holiday break! We hope that you enjoyed plenty of local produce with your families over the course of the last week! I tried out a new turkey technique with a pair of heritage turkeys raised by Sue Kennedy in Lamoille, NV. My turkey leg confit turned out delicious and paired perfectly with the smoked turkey breasts! Add in some local butternut squash roasted with maple syrup and my friends-giving was good to go!
We haven't been hit quite as hard with winter weather as all of you fine folks in Reno, Sparks, and Carson, but there is still a bit of snow on the ground here in Fallon. Our farmer partners have their seedlings tucked in their beds, warm and secure. Fortunately, all of the seeds started in the last few weeks germinated and have sent up shoots. Everything grows a little more slowly in the winter--but that extra time gives our produce opportunities to develop higher levels of sugar.
We are supplementing our local availability this week with some guest farmers from the Sierras! We have a limited availability of Mandarins and Meyer Lemons from Citrus Norte farms as well as Carrots and Siberian Kale from Prema Farms.
With the drop in temperatures it is especially important that you promptly pickup your box at our Carson City location. Please let the Nadalins know if you are unable to pickup on Friday as your box will freeze if left out overnight.
Thank you for supporting our local farms!
