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.

Hello To Everyone!!

Well, exciting times are upon us and the first CSA shares are starting this week! (for the full 15 week summer share)  For those of you that are new to the program, welcome and we hope that you'll enjoy this summer's bounty. Also, for those that are new, we offer a wide range of different things that you may see in your share.  Although the season starts slow, and your share fluctuates over the season, we feel like we should always have as an exciting a share as we can offer.  So, as the shares change with the seasons, and as different items become available, know that we make sure that we offer the full value of your patronage over the entire season.  So don't be surprised if you see fresh baked bread, granola, or other great farm made items in your share!

Also, for those that are new to us...please don't ever hesitate to give us feedback or suggestions about how you share is going...that is how we get better at what we do!  If you have any problems picking up your share, please let us know in advance if possible. We do access the contact information, provided upon sign up, for reminder calls or if we need to reschedule pick-up's.

The season has started slow for us this year, as some would imagine, as winter didn't want to let go...however, we still have some good progress out at the fields and expect things to really start coming along now. The garlic is looking great and all the first plantings of Brassica's (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, etc.) are really looking good. Of course we look forward to offering even more new items from our “producer partners” in addtion to what we'll have to offer in the coming weeks.

Thanks for your support and happy summer! (almost ;)

Aaron & Liz

Good Morning Everyone and we hope this finds you well,

We're excited to announce that we are participating once again this year with our local Alton Central School in bringing fresh foods to families in need through the End 68 Hours of Hunger program.  We have many generous donors once again this year and we hope that you'll consider helping us out with a great cause in providing healthy food alternatives to our community.  We often say that healthy foods should not be dependent on financial means and this seems to resonate still...

The 2014 Farm Bill (more details here) brought us some marginal support for small agriculture, conservation and food-assistance programs, while it provided the same support for large-scale, commodity based agriculture through a switch, from direct subsidies, to the same "subsidies" under a different name..."crop insurance".  The mega-farm operations look to continue expanding our processed, nutritionally deficient, and cheap food system -- a system that is largely dependent on mono-cropping and large inputs of synthetic chemicals and pest approaches that are destroying our farmland and our health.

Although many of us reading this right now may have some ability to "vote with our dollar" and choose healthy food alternatives, many in our community cannot.  The End 68 Hours program may have only a small effect on the larger issues of the global food system, but it has a large reach right here in our community!  We thank you so much for your support of our local families in need and small-scale, local agriculture.

Another exciting addition to this year's efforts is that, once we've fulfilled our needs here in the Alton Central School End 68 Hours Program, we're extending our reach further in participating with the Gilford Got Lunch Program.  This is another great program that provides lunches to families in need in Gilford, right around the corner from where our main farm operation is based.

We'd like to thank you all once again for your membership to our farm and also appreciate your generous support all around!  More details can be found on our website under the "Donate" menu, or by clicking here.  You may access the donation page by clicking here.

Sincerely,

aaron & Liz

Good morning everyone,

This morning I have a great cause to share with everyone and encourage everybody to take a look...this great program is put on by one of our great organizations, the Lakes Region Food Network (LRFN).

We stay active with many organizations in our community and Winnipesaukee Woods Farm is thrilled to participate in another great program to bring fresh, local, and healthy foods to families in need in the Lakes Region...consider helping us out with a donation to our surrounding community here, and thanks!

We'd also like to let everyone know to keep a look out in the near future for other wonderful programs we're excited to participate in again this year.  

For those of you that are new to our Farm, last year we participated with a generous donor group that matched all donations for the "End 68 Hours of Hunger" program...in which we provided full CSA vegetable shares to families in need at Alton Central School.

We are just starting to put together all the details and also talking with other organizations, like the new program started in Gilford (their youtube link is here) modeled after the "Got Lunch Laconia" program.

The exciting thing is that all of these organizations are extending further into our community each year in an effort to put food on the table of families in need.  It is a joy for us as a farm to participate in helping to bring the "fresh, local" aspect to all of these programs!

check back with us soon and we'll keep you posted as we keep getting things organized!

Thanks so much!

Happy Vernal Equinox!

Those of you that aren't on vacation somewhere warm right now surely understand the irony in the first day of spring sending you out to shovel a fresh 4-6 inches of fresh, heavy, wet snow...Happy Spring ;) !

Alas, we live in New Hampshire and finally got a truly full winter of seasonal weather for our beautiful state, but now we can start dreaming of spring flowers and fresh vegetables!!  We are now accepting CSA member enrollment on our website and you may sign up by clicking here.

There are many new changes this year to our CSA program that will hopefully make it even easier for you to get our weekly share of fresh veggies.  We've added 3 new pick up locations for our neighbors in Alton, Gilmanton, Gilford, and Laconia.

We are also now offering new ways to pay for CSA shares this year...you may "pay down" your share value in installments up until the first CSA share becomes available.  However, we're offering a 10% discount to everyone who signs up and pays in full before April 15th...that would bring a full season summer share to only $25 a week!

As always we so much appreciate all of the support that we get from everyone...to all our returning members welcome back and welcome aboard to all our new farm members...

Thank you and keep in touch!
