For the 2013 season we’ve joined with our friends Courtney Grimes-Sutton and Asa Thomas-Train, of Mace Chasm Farm, and Ashlee Kleinhammer, of The North Country Creamery at Clover Mead Farm, to bring fresh meats and dairy products to some of our CSA pickup locations! What’s a better way to end your workday than to pick up a basket filled with week’s worth of assorted vegetables? Having to make a second trip to your car with a basket full of cheese, yogurt, eggs, chicken, beef, sausage…a whole pig if you can carry it!
Juniper Hill Farm has had quite a few guests around the dinner table these past few nights, and with all the extra work getting done before this late (and hopefully last) winter storm, hearty appetites and warm summer evenings have been our inspirations.
In a pinch, Melody mixed up an Asian-inspired salad with some of the last of our beets. With a taste reminiscent of vinegar-slaw and picnics, the whole bowl was devoured before she had time to put the rest of the meal on the table. We’ve decided to recreate and scale down a recipe to share with you now:
We’ve been rummaging through some old pictures to keep us inspired as we wait for the snow to melt; we hope this slideshow reminds you of good times, too![gigya src=”http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=71649″ width=”470″ flashvars=”offsite=true&lang=en-us&page_show_url=/photos/juniperhillfarm/sets/72157632855800252/show/&page_show_back_url=/photos/juniperhillfarm/sets/72157632855800252/&set_id=72157632855800252&jump_to=” allowFullScreen=”true” ]
Our plan for the next month or so is to continue construction on our six greenhouses and recently primed and painted boiler room, start germinating, seeding, and growing all kinds of flowers, tomatoes, greens, and such, and getting organized for spring. If you’d like to help, sign up to become a member of our CSA, or ask us about volunteer work in exchange for some good food!
