The final week of our Summer CSA is here! And whether you have been waiting for this day for a long time, or are already looking forward to your next CSA share (coming next week, if you’ve already signed up for the Fall season) we thank you for your support of our small family farm. Our CSA is a pillar of our vegetable operation, and we are grateful for your participation. We also value your feedback! Let us know how the experience was for you (you can do so by responding to this email).
What is a “shallion”, you ask? A shallion is a magical unicorn of the CSA experience, and as the name suggests, it is a shallot that we harvested at scallion size. Use them cooked or raw, expect delicious mild shallot flavor in a scallionesque package! Yes, we made the name up, but we think you will thank us once you try them! Our favorite uses are for enhancing salads, or as a garnish on a nice clear broth soup full of noodles and veggies!
Hopefully 22 weeks of local, organic vegetables straight from the farm has made a positive impact on your life. We still have a few shares left for the Fall CSA, consider joining us for more delicious veggies!
