Farm Box Happenings for Week of February 22nd, 2021

Posted on February 18th, 2021 by Derek Dumont

Greetings from Harvie Farms Pittsburgh!


We have lots of exciting new produce items this week, which should make for some great cooking, everyone! Red Chard, Purple Potatoes, Fresh Oregano, White Scallions, Garlic Chives, and Gold Beets are just a few of the notable additions! 

Coffee Add-on Share: KLVN Coffee Lab's Colombia Finca Danny. This is a wake up and go kind of coffee. A heady floral atmospheric aromatics set the tone followed by scorched earth, flower-pop riffs evoking the intensely sweet notes of Fuji apple, sweet-tart pink guava, and sticky raspberry jam.

Bread Add-On Share: Mediterra Bakehouse's Sourdough Round is made in the tradition of the old-style San Francisco breads. In place of commercial yeast, it’s made with a live fermented culture of flour and water (sourdough starter), which acts as a natural leavening agent. As a result, this bread requires extra time, which also helps to uncover a flavor more complex and distinct than other breads. Once baked, it has a crackling, crisp crust, a wonderful sourdough tang, and a chewy texture that pairs well with just about anything. Try it in place of your usual sandwich bread or grilled cheese.

Be safe and eat well!
