Oklahoma peaches!

Posted on August 9th, 2022
At last, some Oklahoma peaches! Apparently the late-season peaches partially escaped the hail storm that took out the rest of the crop at Livesay Orchards. Some of them have skin blemishes, but they are considered "#1" quality. Look for them in your box this week! Thank you so much for being a member!... read more »

Peppers, eggplant, peaches, melons!

Posted on August 2nd, 2022
Peppers are finally here! And melons, too. It's pretty hard to manage the delivery of large watermelons, so we're hoping some smaller "Ana" variety melons will be available for boxes soon. In the meantime, you'll see cut cantaloupe cups in the boxes this week.  New to eggplant? Try salting it before... read more »

Peaches, at last!

Posted on July 26th, 2022
As many of you know, the peach crop at Livesay Orchards in Porter was hit hard by hail this year, so the peaches we've been buying from them have actually been coming from other orchards they are connected with out-of-state. That has resulted in a lot of uncertainty, and we haven't been able to make... read more »

Too hot to cook - grab some deli food

Posted on July 19th, 2022
We're featuring a few of our house-made deli salads this week so you can turn off your oven and have an easy meal - easy food that's not fast food.  Also, there are a limited number of peaches available - add them to your order while they last! By next week we should have melons.  Stay safe... read more »

Okra and eggplant!

Posted on July 12th, 2022
We're getting into the HOT season crops now, like okra, which is drought-tolerant and actually likes the heat. We also have eggplant this week from Fisher Family Farms in Slick, Oklahoma. Peppers should arrive soon, but not this week. But plants aside, this extreme heat is testing the limits of farmers... read more »

Remember to return your home delivery packaging!

Posted on July 5th, 2022
It is HOT! We are leaving ice packs and insulated bags with all deliveries (unless you are home), and we really need to get those back in order to keep our delivery costs sustainable (and reduce waste.) Please leave any insulated bags and ice packs on your porch for us to snag when we deliver (if you... read more »

Tomatoes, sweetcorn, blueberries!

Posted on June 28th, 2022
Tomatoes, sweetcorn, blueberries - red, white and blue! This is your 4th of July box, so make sure and stock up on all of your cook-out supplies and holiday weekend treats. This is also the first week for field-grown summer tomatoes from Fishers Produce, and organic farm in Slick, OK.  As always,... read more »

Blackberries, garlic and cherry tomatoes!

Posted on June 21st, 2022
We're about to get into the heart of summer produce, but not QUITE yet. Just a note about how we allocate food around here: if a crop isn't a sure thing, we don't offer it up in the grocery boxes. So we might get small numbers of tomatoes, peppers and peaches in the store this week, but you won't see... read more »

PASTA SPECIAL: Wild mushroom and herb campanelle

Posted on June 14th, 2022
Chris Becker at Della Terra Pasta reached out to us about a limited run pasta (one of his personal favorites, no less) that he wanted to offer to our grocery box customers, so of course we said yes!  Wild mushroom and herb campanelle is a dried pasta with porcini and maitake mushrooms as well as... read more »
