We’re proud to share that all of the items in our Bundles this delivery are from in or around the Rogue Valley (within 50 miles or so), and the story this week centers around Matt Suhr and his farm, HappyDirt Veggie Patch, in Medford. Matt currently receives the food scraps from our Community Compost program, and that certainly makes his soil a measure happier than most! Matt’s got a lot of produce coming in, and we’re highlighting what he has available in the four Bundles we’re putting together. Order now for a home delivery on Friday, September 6, and check out our amazing new customer discounts, good through Labor Day, September 2.
Here are some of the awesome local farms contributing to this share: HappyDirt Veggie Patch, Ella Bella Farm, Wandering Roots Farm, Fry Family Farm, Terra Sol Organics, Michellynda Orchard, and Rolling Hills Farm. This share includes an Italian pepper medley (nothing spicy), a pint of cherry tomatoes, a pound of heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil, pea shoots, brown turkey figs, peaches, kale, cilantro, Armenian cucumbers, crookneck squash, and a bunch of carrots. Suggestions: Olive oil always elevates the flavors of those tomatoes, and we recommend a fine fromage from By George or goat chèvre from Oak Leaf Creamery. Might want to order a head of lettuce, too. FYI, those pea shoots are a great way to add fresh greens to a smoothie!
Here are the farms contributing to the Omnivore Share: Rise Up! Bakery, Oak Leaf Creamery, White Oak Ranch, Ella Bella Farm, Happy Dirt Veggie Patch, Fry Family Farm, and Rolling Hills Farm. The share includes a loaf of Rogue Valley Sourdough Bread, an 8 oz. tub of raw Herbs de Provence goat chèvre, a pound of smoked bacon, heirloom tomatoes, an Italian pepper medley, fresh basil, crookneck squash, and giant peaches. Suggestions: Add a head of lettuce for fixings on a BLT. Perhaps a dozen eggs for a hearty breakfast? You’ll also want to grab a pint of brown turkey figs while you still have a chance!
Contributing farms and producers: Poetential Farm, Dauenhauer Cattle, HappyDirt Veggie Patch, Rolling Hills Farm, Rogue Creamery, and Terra Sol Organics. This share includes a dozen eggs, a wedge of Oregonzola cheese, peaches, heirloom tomatoes, pea shoots, Swiss chard, ground beef, and smoked peppered beef jerky. Suggestions: If you’re a true keto person, you’ll probably want to add some avocado and maybe a few more veggies. The Italian pepper medley from Ella Bella Farm would also complement this share.
Contributing local farms and producers: Noble Coffee, Poetential Farm, Little Shop of Bagels, HappyDirt Veggie Patch, and Ella Bella Farm. This share includes a bag of whole bean Daydream Coffee from Noble Coffee Roasters in Ashland; a dozen eggs; your choice of bagels and cream cheese varieties; fresh basil; heirloom tomatoes; Swiss chard; and garlic. Suggestions: Pea shoots are always our favorite to add to a breakfast sandwich (I guess you’ll need bread, too) or smoothie. If you want to make your Breakfast Bundle a little more hearty, add a pound of bacon from White Oak Ranch.
