One way to use some of your local CSA goodies

CSA, Food, Recipes, Weekly Shares

Hey everyone!  This delicious recipe uses kale, lentils, thyme, rosemary and onions from the CSA.  The pork sausage and garlic powder are local, too.  All you need are some sweet potatoes and you’ve got a very delicious, very nutritious meal!

Early this afternoon I took a look in the pantry and was uninspired. “What am I going to do for dinner tonight?” I thought. While working through the rest of the afternoon, I let this little conundrum roll around in the back of my head. Inspiration usually hits me if I just let my subconscious […]

Week 11: jalapeno poppers!

CSA, Food, Recipes, Weekly Shares

If you like jalapeno poppers, then I’ve got a treat for you! We got jalapenos in this week’s share, and I combined them with the hot pepper cheese curds from the Fun Share, some roasted garlic cheese, cream cheese, and feta cheese (that’s the secret weapon!) for an out-of-this-world spicy treat. Best of all, they […]

Week 4 share, newsletter, & how to make ranch mix for dressing & dips–Whew!

CSA, Food, Recipes, Weekly Shares

I love ranch dressing–and I love the powdered mix you can buy in those little packets in the grocery store, but they are expensive, and they always have hard-to-pronounce ingredients in them, including monosodium glutamate, or MSG. MSG has its issues (I have a friend who claims it gives her migraines) and so I try […]

CSA, Food, Recipes, Weekly Shares

This week Urban Farmgal is cooking up Asian garlic scape pesto noodles, grilled pork shoulder steak, and Dutch oven peach-huckleberry cobbler–at a cabin in the mountains!  The Asian garlic scape peso recipe is here.  Sara will show you how to make it in June when we get them with our shares!

Cheese & Fun Shares are SOLD OUT!!

Community Supported Agriculture, CSA, Food, Weekly Shares

Hey fellow locavores!  We’re sold out of Cheese and Fun shares for the 2017 summer CSA season.  But there’s a little bit of good news:  if we have more interest, we’ll start a waiting list and if there is enough interest (i.e., we need to sell 6 more of either share) by the time we stop selling shares May 31st  then it will happen!

We still need to sell some milk shares.  We have to purchase milk in gallons by multiples of 4 (we’ve sold 3) and we have to purchase milk in half gallons by multiples of 6 (we’ve sold 3).  If you are interested in fresh milk this summer–think HOMEMADE ICE CREAM–then this is a great way to get it.

We’ve still got plenty of produce shares available–so if you have a friend who wants to try their hand at local, seasonal eating this year, tell them about us!

As always, thanks for choosing to eat like a local.  We will see you June 6th at the Lewis & Clark county fairgrounds!

We’ve already had questions about signing up for next summer’s CSA shares!  We appreciate your enthusiasm for supporting local and sustainable agriculture in western Montana!

For current and recent members, expect to see an email in the coming weeks about signing up.  We will most likely be adding some changes to our share offerings, so there may be something new that intrigues you!  More details to follow, so be patient as we work out the details.  For now, if you are joining us for the 2016 Fall Share session, we’ll see you next Tuesday, October 25th between 11am-2pm at the Lewis & Clark County fairgrounds.  If you are not joining us for the Fall Share, then we hope to see you again June 6, 2017, when our Summer Shares begin again!
