Those of you who have had an opportunity to taste Top of the Hill Farm's beef and pork, know that local and fresh makes a difference. 

We are proud to announce that we are now accepting preorders for Evandale Farm's free-range organic whole chickens.  The estimated date of arrival is the first or second week of August, but quantities are limited, so preorder with us now.  The price is $6/lb and the average weight is 4-5lbs. 

Order just one for immediate eating or a few for saving in the freezer.  If ordered frozen, they are flash-frozen to maintain the highest quality.

We enjoyed one of Evandale's chickens last year, rotisserie-style and were impressed by its great flavor and tender meat.

Happy Rainy Day!

The rain managed to hold off all morning while we were out in the fields working, but this afternoon it has made its way to us.  However, it's all good because those greenhouse tomatoes are really taking off and were in need of some trellising and pruning.

Looking for a quick, simple, and tasty meal?  This one worked for us last night at 10pm!  Sauté some kale, garlic, caramelized onions, and whatever other veggie you may choose.  Chop up some basil, grate some sharp cheddar cheese, and toss it all with some of that basil infused olive oil we recommended last week.

House to hot to cook?  Chop up some kale, particularly the long, thin, dark leaved varietal and make an All Kale Caesar.  Check out our recipes for an easy no-egg recipe that you can throw in a Ball jar in your fridge for weeks.

Scallion pancakes are also a yummy one when you have that kicking around in your share!

1 Basil (bag)

1 Carrots, Baby (bunch)

Greetings!

Not sure what to do with your basil this week?  Freezing pesto and making caprese salads not doing it for you?  Try this recipe for basil infused olive oil.  It is a great thing to have around to accent any dish and makes an awesome gift.

How about fish tacos this week?  Use your cabbage and cilantro as fresh toppings.  It's the perfect hot weather treat.  Pair it with a mojito with mint, basil, and coconut rum and you are all set!

Good Evening %%user-firstname%%,

Fourth of July has snuck up on us and the weather finally begins to seem "summer-like"!  If you are looking for an alternative to mass-produced meats for your holiday guests at your back-yard barbecue...check out our humanely-raised, grass-fed beef and pork options from Top of the Hill Farm.  The flavor of his meats are unmatched from his prize winning Hereford cows.  The sausages are always a huge hit when we bring them to gatherings.  Order online or email before Tuesday night to ensure you get what you need (by Monday please for Wed. pickups)!

Click here for a great picnic recipe for BBQ pork ribs that you can try.  Top of the Hill's ribs are awesome too!  Or make your meal pop with this Aji recipe with your chicken or steak on the grill that uses the cilantro from this week's share.

Good morning to all!

We are getting ready for a round of thunderstorms and heavy rain that is much needed by the crops.  Below is what is included in this week's share.

Not sure what to do with those gorgeous garlic scapes?  Keep scrolling down, or use our recipe search engine for garlic scape pesto.  They can be used as a substitute for green onions, a topping for pizza or bruschetta, roast with olive oil, salt, and pepper for a side dish, or chop and add into an omelette.  

Full Share:

Strawberries (provided the weather holds), basil, cabbage, kale, pac choi, radishes, spinach, mixed baby lettuce, and garlic scapes

Small Share:

Strawberries (provided the weather holds), basil, kale, spinach, mixed baby lettuce, garlic scapes

 

Garlic Scape Pesto

1 bunch garlic scapes

2/3 c toasted walnuts

2/3 c parmesan cheese

3/4 c olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

 

Cut scapes into 2 inch pieces.  Include all but the part from the flower "bulge" and tip.  Add toasted walnuts, scapes, cheese, salt, and pepper to food processor.  Drizzle in olive oil.  Freezes well and maintains color.

I am happy to announce that our first fresh fruit of the season is in!!  I'll be including a quart of strawberries in everyone's share this week...however, if you'd like to order extra they are available in our farm store online.  Load up for jams and pies or stock up and freeze a bunch for later!

Enjoy!

Came home from a morning run to this beauty! Scrambled farm fresh eggs, diced tomato, chopped kale, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, and homemade pesto.  All with a side of salad mix and Aaron's famous fresh bread.  Yum!

Looking for something new and different to do with the kale in your share this week?  Try this Kale and Caramelized Onion recipe.   Besides burning Aaron's mouth with the healthy portion of habeneros I tossed on the top (I elected to leave those off the final recipe cut!), it was a real hit.  Check out this, and many other recipes, on our website under "Our Products" or on the right sidebar at the bottom you will find a recipe search tool.
