Farm Happening (18th DELIVERY SUMMER out of 20)

Posted on September 23rd, 2021 by Diane Riehm


PLEASE search around your house for any green bags to return. 

ONLY THREE (3) weeks of summer CSA left! 

We are getting ready for the Fall/Winter CSA season and need to get them back to us and cleaned. We are still short about 300 bags! 

The carnival squash is a hybrid of the sweet dumpling squash and the acorn squash. 

Slightly smaller than acorn squash. 


When cooked, Carnival squash is soft and tender with a fragrant aroma and is slightly nutty, buttery, and sweet with nuances of maple syrup, similar to butternut squash. 

Should I peel carnival squash? No, the process can be quite difficult and tedious. 

Another fall veggie you should give a try... 

No matter what you call them – sweet potato leaves, camote tops, or kamote tops – the vines are rich and flavorful, although like most greens they may be somewhat bitter. 

The leaves are prepared much like spinach or turnip greens. Boiling the sweet potato vine leaves in a small amount of water removes any toughness or bitterness. 

Once the sweet potato greens are tender, chop the leaves and use them in recipes or sauté them with butter and garlic. Finish off by splashing the hot sweet potato greens with soy sauce or vinegar and a dash of salt. 

If you find yourself getting excited about fall veggies, don't delay in signing up for the "NEW" CSA Market Box for your Fall/Winter shares. 

Your price has NOT increased per item. 

Since we have been doing several "farm" add-ons for the last several years we felt comfortable letting people swap all our products instead of just swapping veggies

So if you DO NOT want all veggies,
there are plenty of options to swap for such as apples, eggs, chicken, beef, pork, pasta, bread, granola, honey, jam, maple syrup, cheese, coffee, etc. Just put $49, $69, or $99 (whichever plan you chose) worth of product into your bag every 2 weeks.
If you find it to be too much, you have the flexibility of skipping weeks without paying or rescheduling. 
CLICK HERE for most of your information on the "New" Fall/Winter CSA market boxes. 


If you have more questions about our NEW Market Share Box, stop by our Barnyard Fun & Corn Maze Event starting THIS WEEKEND!

Hop on the Hayride where we will be spreading the word about our Market Boxes. End your ride while watching the Pumpkin Cannon shoot off a pumpkin far into the pasture.

We're estimating thousands of people visiting the farm this Fall season, so jump on your opportunity to reserve your spot for our Fall/Winter Market Box NOW!

P.S. Don't forget to return your GREEN BAGS to the farm! Only 3 short weeks of Summer CSA's left!
