Farm Happenings (#16 DELIVERY SUMMER out of 20)

Posted on September 9th, 2021 by Diane Riehm


It's that time of year for FALL Squash. 

Although we harvested several varieties, let's talk about the BUTTERNUT SQUASH! 

  • Pierce several times and easily cook in the crock pot for 4 hours on high. Scoop out inside, add butter for a side-dish or make into soup. 
    • Can also be substituted for part or all of the pumpkin in pumpkin pie. 

We are so appreciative of our Farm Staff and all the HARD WORK they put in! We also love giving them the opportunity to see how appreciative our loyal customers are to their DEDICATION on the farm. 

If you haven't taken the time to Tip the farm staff, NOW is the time. Only 5 more weeks of C.S.A. Veggie Boxes left for the summer. 

Your Tips will go directly to workers who pick, pack and deliver your fresh vegetables weekly. To increase the amount just hit the quantity button. One of our CSA weekly veggie box members said it best... 

When I think of how much manual labor goes into a produce farm: "A farmer may not be able to hire quality staff at minimum wages. However, I think the best way to help people stay working on farms to produce whole-foods and make it more available, is to show your appreciation for their hard work." 

This is especially important for adults, who have bills to pay.  These tips are given to outstanding employees.
