Gathering Time

Posted on November 17th, 2023 by Danielle *Allen

There's something so beautiful about living and eating more intentionally with the seasons, in noticing how our gatherings and feasts can center around the many flavors and variety of foods the earth supports in our region at this time of year. Butternut squash, hearty greens, russet potatoes, carrots, cabbage, brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, rosemary, thyme - all of these delicious vegetables and herbs will be available for your boxes this week. We're also excited to offer Vermont-grown cranberries, frozen blueberries, and a selection of our favorite apples for your pie making delight.

Whether you're looking to bring something new to the table or make something more traditional this holiday season, maybe you'll find inspiration in this compilation from the New York Times, which offers Thanksgiving recipes for all kinds of dishes and diets.

For all those who celebrate, may your Thanksgiving meal be an homage to the harvest that illuminates our connection to the seasons and cycles of the earth. Thank you so much for choosing local food and supporting your farmers, we hope the food from our farm offers inspiration and comfort! We're incredibly grateful for your trust in us to grow your food and together, we're dreaming the future we all need into being. When all are fed, supported, valued, and seen, and when we work together, we ensure a better food system today and tomorrow.
