Happy Valentine's Day!!  At my home we don't really celebrate it, mostly because it's a holiday promoted by corporations to sell cards, chocolates and flowers, but also because our second son was born on this day, so that celebration is more important to us.

This is Week 6 of Winter CSA, so we have just two more deliveries until our Spring Shares begin.  I am putting the finishing touches on updates to our Website, so look for an email very soon announcing Spring Share and CSA 2018 sign-ups.

We had a taste of spring, and now it looks like winter is going to hold on a bit longer.  We have been busy on our farm getting our maple syrup equipment all cleaned and ready, as well as installing additional tubing to collect the sap.  Some of the smaller maple producers collected sap during the warm days and have already boiled some syrup, but most of the larger producers wait until the weather is a little more predictable because of all the work involved in emptying and cleaning our evaporators so they don't freeze.  The maple syrup in your shares today was freshly boiled this week at NuWay Farm.

Your farmers are also busy planning for this year, discussing delivery locations and CSA share details, planning our crops, and ordering seeds.  We will open our sign-up period sometime next week, so be on the lookout for that email.

CSA Shares

  • 1/2 pt. maple syrup from NuWay Farm
  • 2 lb. potatoes from Detweiler Farm
  • 1 lettuce from Harmony Grove Farm
  • 1 container broccoli sprouts from Harmony Grove Farm
  • 2 lb. sweet potatoes from TOG
  • 1 lb. purple daikon radish from TOG
  • 1 lb. red onion from TOG
  • 1 lb. golden beets from TOG  (I urge you to try these even if you don't care for beets.  They taste very different.)

Recipes

Roasted Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Roasted Broccoli and Sweet Potatoes

When we have leftover baked sweet potato, we often make chocolate pudding.  Simple and creamy.

One Pan Maple Mustard Chicken and Potatoes

Maple Soy Glazed Salmon:  If you eat salmon, this looks like a simple recipe.  I recommend coconut aminos or tamari sauce instead of soy sauce. 

Salt & Vinegar Broiled Potatoes

Spicy Potato Wedges

Golden Beet and Quinoa Salad with Feta

Golden Beets with Herbed Goat Cheese

Roasted Golden Beets with Rosemary and Garlic

If you make something yummy with your CSA share, feel free to post a photo or recipe on our Facebook page!

One of our farmers, Silver Wheel Farm, has started a new venture, Going with the Grain Bakery.  They are baking artisan bread using local and organic ingredients.  Their bread is available through our Webstore.

They are hosting two events in the coming weeks that you might be interested in:

Artisan Bread for Every Oven:  Saturday, January 27.  A hands-on class which teaches recipes and techniques for making artisan bread in your kitchen.  Click here for details.  If you are a member of NWPAGC's CSA and/or Webstore during the last year, you can use the code artisanbread15 for 15% off the class fee.

The Baker & The Farmer: A Winter’s Tale of The Journey of Bread Saturday, February 17.  Nigel Tudor from Weatherbury flour and Lori Sands from Going With the Grain Bakery will discuss local grains and their use in baking bread.  Click here for details.  If you are a member of NWPAGC's CSA and/or Webstore during the last year, you can use the code bakerandfarmer5 to get a discount on the cost.

This week, we have added some produce from Tuscarora Organic Growers, a farmers cooperative in east side of the state.  We cooperate with another co-op in our area for transportation of the produce so we can minimize our cost and the effects on the environment.  My kitchen then becomes a packing area for a few hours to weigh and bag everything.

Last week I attended Mid-Ohio Growers Conference for two days in Holmes County, along with David and Lydia Yoder from NuWay Farm.  Over 80% of the attendees were Amish and Mennonite, so I was definitely in the minority.  There were three workshops to choose from every hour, as well as vendors with information about their products and services.  One of the big topics nowadays is GAP certification, which is required for produce farms that sell to larger stores and institutions like schools and hospitals.  GAP stands for good agricultural practices, and is mostly common-sense food safety practices like hand washing and water testing, but it also involves keeping detailed records of planting, harvesting, sales, etc. We do that informally, but our farmers are considering whether we need to add this certification.  The yearly cost to each farm is several hundred dollars, plus the cost of the time to prepare for inspection and recordkeeping throughout the year.

I hope you all had wonderful holiday celebrations the past few weeks.  Mine was busy with our holiday store, and I am looking forward to slowing down for the next couple of months and working on several projects that I put off until these cold days. 

I have been dreading today all week.  While it's sunny and almost balmy at 22 degrees while I type this, it was anything but that at 6:00 this morning.  Some people thrive in cold weather.  I am not one of those people.  But you needed your CSA food, and our farmers needed to ship their products, so a few of us braved the cold and got it done.

So far, all of our CSA shares have consisted of products from our farms.  I'm sure some of you are tiring of cabbage or squash.  Next time, we will have additional veggies from an organic farmer's cooperative in the eastern part of PA to supplement our farmers' products and give you more variety.  We cooperate with other farms and stores in our area to bring their produce "out west" to save fuel and have a lower imprint on the environment.  You can look forward to new flavors in the coming months, including sweet potatoes, parsnips, and mushrooms.

CSA Shares

  • 1 acorn squash from Detweiler Farm
  • 1 cabbage from Detweiler Farm
  • 1 lb. popcorn from Detweiler Farm
  • 1 lb. beets from Detweiler Farm
  • 2 lb. potatoes from Detweiler Farm
  • 1 garlic from Detweiler Farm
  • 2 heads lettuce from Harmony Grove Farm
  • 1 bag pea shoots from Harmony Grove Farm

Recipes

Choosing recipes to share can be a difficult task.  Some of our members choose a vegetarian or vegan diet.  Some choose paleo.  Some eat a standard American diet but know they should eat healthier.  Some eat gluten-free.  Some deal with food allergies.  I could continue listing variations, but you get the picture.  I try to choose a variety of recipes so that you can always find some here that fit your family's needs.  I always look for recipes with all or most whole foods rather than processed ingredients.

Roasted Winter Veggie Power Bowl:  My family had this for lunch today, and it is delicious!  We subbed acorn squash for the butternut and added some sliced red onion and pea shoots.  We didn't have parsnips, so we left them out.  You could add a protein like chicken breasts or garbanzo beans.

Grilled Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

Peanut Chicken Keto Wraps:  I would use lettuce rather than Swiss chard in these.  If you're not familiar with aminos, they are a healthier substitute for soy sauce.  You can choose coconut aminos or Braggs liquid aminos...or just use soy sauce if that's what you're used to.

Nigel Slater's Five Spice Chicken and Pea Shoot Salad

Roasted Beet Salad with Pea Shoots (the recipe title for this says it has chevre in it, but there is no chevre in either the recipe or photos.  Feel free to add some if you want!)

Smoky Black Bean Beet Burgers:  The comments on this recipe say they are delicious. 

Mediterranean Beets with Garlic and Olive Oil

Fried Cabbage with Potatoes and Bacon

Cabbage Roll Soup

Mushroom and Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

Roasted Acorn Squash with Cranberries, Goat Cheese, and Balsamic Glaze

Really Crispy Smashed Potatoes

Vegan Potato Soup with Beans and Kale

With every CSA delivery, I send out an email with farm news, a list of the share contents, and suggested recipes for your share.  For most of you, this is old news.  But we have a few members who are new to our CSA, so you can expect this email on CSA day.  In the winter, farm news will be more sporadic since there isn't much going on at many farms during the cold months.  That's not to say that your farmers aren't busy; rather much of the daily operations are not very newsworthy.

CSA Shares

  • 1 head lettuce from Harmony Grove Farm
  • 1/2 lb. kale from NuWay Farm
  • 1 bunch carrots from NuWay Farm
  • 1 lb. turnips from NuWay Farm
  • 2 delicate squash from Detweiler Farm (a few of you have acorn)
  • 1 lb. onions from Detweiler Farm
  • 1 garlic from Detweiler Farm
  • 1 cabbage from Detweiler Farm
  • 1 dozen eggs from Miller Farm Products
  • 2 lb. potatoes from Miller Farm Products

Recipes

Breakfast Delicata Squash

Warm Winter Kale and Delicata Salad

Turnip Soup with Rosemary and Black Pepper (One of our CSA members says this is the best turnip recipe she has made.)

Lemon Roasted Turnips

Spinach, Mushroom and Feta Crustless Quiche

Do you know how easy it is to make Egg Drop Soup?

Zuppa Toscana - a creamy soup with sausage, potatoes, and kale.

Simple Potato Soup

Potato, Chickpea and Spinach Curry for a meatless meal

Chicken Yakisoba - a vegetable, chicken, and ramen noodle dish.  Be sure you throw away the seasoning packet in the ramen noodles...or buy plain ones.

My family's favorite cabbage recipe:  Roasted Cabbage Wedges with Onion Dijon Sauce

Our next CSA delivery will be December 13, and then we have 3 weeks off until January 3.  Thank you for choosing to eat local this winter!

Our Summer/Fall Farm Share (CSA) season has ended, and our Winter season begins next week!  If you haven't already signed up, it's not too late to join.  If you have already joined us, THANK YOU!!

Our Winter Farm Share will mostly include our naturally-grown produce, but you might also receive eggs, maple syrup, and other farm-produced items.  Your share will be full of seasonal veggies like squash, sweet potatoes, cabbage, potatoes, and onions, plus fresh lettuce and greens grown in greenhouses to extend the season.

Additional shares of eggs, ground beef and sausage are also available.

Our Winter pickup locations include Butler, Franklin, Grove City, Hermitage, Mercer, and Slippery Rock.  Delivery is only twice/month for the winter season.

Since we know that most people's budgets are stretched at this time of year, you can make a down-payment and pay the rest after the holidays.

Give a gift of support to your local farmers this season, and receive yummy farm products in return!

May you have a blessed Thanksgiving and a rewarding time with family and friends.  We are thankful for our neighbors who support local farm efforts.

Your farmers from Northwest Pennsylvania Growers' Cooperative

Our current CSA season is over in one more week.  But you can still eat locally this winter with our Winter CSA.  Instead of every week, our pickups are generally every two weeks for the Winter and Spring Shares. Support your local farmers even in the winter!

Grateful Life Farm

This week we've had several unwelcome visitors to the farm.  Earlier in the week I was checking on the progress of some of the younger spinach and lettuce.  I pulled back the floating row cover from two beds to find complete destruction.  The spinach looked as though I had walked down the rows with pruning shears and the little lettuces were eaten down to stubby cores.  We've had previous crop damage from voles and I've successfully treated the area with Plantskydd granules.  However, I have only struggled in the past with them eating root crops like beets and carrots and I had not applied any of the repellent to spinach or lettuce beds.  Their population in our garden seems to be expanding, probably because a food source is available and we have fenced out the larger animals that are their natural predators, but they are small enough to go through the fence or tunnel under.  In addition, the landscape fabric we've used this season for weed control gives them somewhere to hide.  We decided to go out in the rain and apply Plantskydd to everything, and also try a sonic deterrent and several packs of mouse traps.

The second visit came last night around 12:30, when we were woken by a hen screaming bloody murder.  Hearts pounding, we jumped out of bed, tugged on boots, and ran to the chicken coop.  I couldn't see anything at first, and we almost thought they had just been alarmed by a spilled-grain munching vole.  Fortunately we didn't go back to bed, because another trip around the coop with a strong flashlight revealed a possum hiding under the nest boxes.  We dispatched the possum and none of the hens appeared harmed.  I'm not sure why the possum was so slow to attack that the hens could sound the alarm and we feel very lucky, but we need to evaluate our system to determine how the possum gained entry in the first place and shore up the weak points.

Bushel and a Peck Farm

We are very busy at our farm right now.  While most farms are slowing down and preparing for long rests during snowy days, our busy season is upon us.  Last year, we set up a stand at Shenango Valley Mall in Hermitage for the month of December to sell our maple products. This year, we are expanding greatly.  We are opening a store at Grove City Premium Outlets for the holiday season.  Along with our maple products, we will have lots of locally produced and natural products from other artisans and local businesses.  Our goal is to open this Friday, and we have a ton of work to do to get ready before opening. 
 
Along with our store, we are stretching more tubing in the woods to expand our maple production.  Then, when the tubing is in place, we will wait until the weather is right to tap the trees and collect the bountiful sap to boil into maple syrup in the spring.

Do you notice a trend here?  With colder weather, we are attracted more toward roasted and stewed dishes.  These make up the bulk of our meals, with a little bit of fresh thrown in, contrasting with summer when most of our meals are based on fresh, raw veggies.  I rather like the change of the seasons and the different ways we prepare foods according to the seasons.  Put on a pot of soup or stew to enjoy with your family this weekend.

This is Week 22 of 24 of this season.  We have only two more weeks left in the current season.

I want to apologize if anyone was offended by our offering conventionally grown sweet potatoes.  We decided not to put them in the regular CSA shares in case anyone didn't read the email on Friday and doesn't want them.  I know that offering conventional produce is outside of our mission statement.  The matter was discussed with some (but not all) of our Board members, and we all had mixed feelings about the matter.  You see, I ask our growers every year to grow sweet potatoes, parsnips, and Brussels sprouts for CSA shares.  However, when we do have any, there are never enough.  For our Winter Shares, we get beautiful sweet potatoes from an organic farmer's cooperative in eastern PA, but we put off ordering from them until we have to because of distance and to allow our farmers to sell their produce first.  Because we know that many of our CSA members purchase sweet potatoes at the grocery store when we don't have them available, and because we have numerous requests for sweet potatoes, we allowed them to be listed in the Webstore.  I also put a very limited number in the Choice boxes and marked them "conventional" so you have a choice whether to take them. 

Based on the response in Webstore sales, many of you had similar reactions, purchasing locally grown conventional sweet potatoes where you were informed of growing practices rather than from the store where you don't know what was applied.  Others passed them up.  This farmer is considering growing naturally grown sweet potatoes for us next year.  The issue is on the agenda for our Board meeting this week, so I do not know whether we will continue to offer them.  If you would like to weigh in with your opinion, please email me.

This fall weather is making me think soup!  Last night we had homemade chicken noodle soup for dinner.  I use my crockpot to simmer a chicken carcass in water, either leftover from a roasted chicken, or the backs and necks from making cut ups, or a whole stewing hen.  The broth can be flavored by adding herbs such as sage, thyme, and rosemary.  I simmer for around 24 hours, then strain the broth into a large bowl and place it in the refrigerator.  The fat will harden on top and can be removed easily once the broth is chilled.  I pick through the strained bones for pieces of meat and add those into the broth.  When I'm ready to make the soup, I just sauté carrots, onions, celery and garlic in a little olive oil or butter until soft.  Then I add the broth and meat, bring to a boil, and add gluten free noodles and simmer around 20 minutes.  Salt and pepper to taste, keeping in mind you may need more salt than you think because unlike commercial broth, homemade broth is not salty.  The soup is even better the next day.  Another chicken soup variation I love is this wonderful Cream of Chicken Soup recipe from my friend Shelly.  She made it for us on a bitter January night and it was pure warmth and comfort in a bowl.  http://www.oldtime.farm/recipesresources/old-time-cream-of-chicken-soup-with-kniffles

This week we've been busy making preparations for colder weather.  We've been bringing in our gravity-fed bell waterers and draining them to keep the tubing and valves from freezing and breaking.  The laying hens will get a galvanized waterer set on an electric heated base to keep their water liquid.  For the rabbits, we just dump out their water and replace it with fresh multiple times per day.  We also covered all of our remaining lettuce, spinach, radishes, and green onions with floating row cover.  As the weather gets colder and heavy snow threatens, we plan to add a layer of plastic supported by metal hoops above the floating row cover to give two layers of insulation, a technique described by Maine grower Eliot Coleman.

Fall has finally arrived.  It's a bit chilly when we're packing boxes at 7 a.m. in an unheated packing house.  We bundle up and bring hot coffee or tea with us.  In the winter, we use a space heater to take the edge off, but it's not cold enough yet to bother with it.  See how much we love our CSA members?

I got some good news this morning from David Yoder.  His son Willie has started walking with bars to hold on to.  The family is very encouraged about his progress, and they hope to have him home from the rehab hospital within a couple of weeks.  Thank you again for your prayers for them during this time.

Farm Updates

Hazy Hollow Farm

On Sunday we harvested supers from our hives as it appeared to be one of the few remaining days that it would be warm enough to open and inspect the colonies.  Populations look good for now, and we left plenty of honey for the bees.  We will see what winter does.  Actually warm weather, which makes bees more active when there is no nectar or pollen to harvest, is as big a concern as bitter cold.  We will wrap the hives with foam board later to insulate them a bit.  In a couple of weeks we will get out the extractor and pour this fall's crop.

Grateful Life Farm

What a week of lovely fall weather!  I love the cool, clear nights, warm sunny days, and beautiful sunrises and sunsets.  Leaves are slowly drifting off of our trees in the gentle winds, looking like an autumn version of a snow globe.  The falling leaves are very entertaining for our laying hens and our turkeys.  The hens dig and scratch endlessly, looking for bugs beneath and the turkeys run and try to catch falling leaves out of mid-air. 

Eight tiny baby rabbits were born Sunday night!  I was concerned because the night was cold, but Mama Coco had covered them with plenty of her fur and all of them are doing very well.  They were born completely hairless, but a fine covering of black fur is already starting to grow in. 

We made solid progress this week on our pig plans, building the floor and walls of the pig shelter, and designing the permanent fence and ordering materials.  Although we plan to rotate the pigs around our property, we also need a stationary area with a permanent fence.  When the small pigs arrive on our farm, they will need to be trained to electric fence before they can be trusted without a physical barrier.  In addition, electric fence is not as effective in winter when the ground freezes and snow can insulate animals, both the pigs and potential predators, from being shocked.  Because we plan to raise these pigs through the winter, we are building a four sided shelter with a floor, so we can keep them dry and comfortable and avoid health problems.
