CSA Shares for 9.9.2015

This week’s Farm Share will most likely include:
Tomatoes, Salad Mix, Sweet Peppers, Summer Squash, Kale, Collards (on farm) OR Chard (Church Hill), Garlic, plus one of the following: Green Beans, Okra, Eggplant, or Cucumber

Sign up is now open for our Fall Farm Share CSA which provides members with a weekly share of vegetables for all of October and November. We are so excited to announce that we have not one but two new pick up locations for our Fall Farm Share: Perk! Coffee and Lunchbox in Bon Air will be an additional Wednesday afternoon Farm Share pick up spot and First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond (adjacent to Byrd Park and the Carillon Tower) will be a Farm Share pick up spot for Sunday mornings.

ALSO new for the fall season: Farm Share CSA members that pick up at our farm can sign up for a Dairy Share through Old Church Creamery, picked up at our farm each week. Details on the CSA sign up page. 

* Mark your Calendars! *
Our 2015 CSA Member Farm Party will be on Sunday, September 27th, from 2-6 pm.
CSA Members: Please join us on the farm to share food, drink, a members-only farm tour, and a celebration of the 2015 season. Bring some food to share and sit with us for a spell. Drop in for just a bit or stay the whole afternoon. All CSA members should have received an evite. Please RSVP through the evite. Driving directions and information found here.

Recipe Suggestions: see these and others cataloged on our Recipe Page
These are from CSA members, tried and true:
Quick Braised Swiss Chard with White Beans and Chorizo
Schezwan Eggplant
Chickpea Flour Stuffed Peppers – use any type of pepper, even very small ones. Forget the mango powder it calls for (what is mango powder??). We are told to just slit the peppers and put the spiced-flour-paste inside. Then bake or shallow fry. Yum!
Our favorites:
Roasted Okra – simple and delicious!
Cucumber and Charred Onion Salad
Summer Squash Saute

Available for Market Share CSA members to choose from this week:
Chard, Collards, Eggplant, Garlic, Kale, Lettuce, Peppers, Salad Mix, Summer Squash (yellow and zucchini)…and Naturally Leavened, Organic Multigrain Bread.

2015 Market Share CSA Members: Reserve your selection online to pick up on Wednesday, September 9 at our farm, Good Health Herbs (New Location! Pick up hours are from 4:00 – 6:00), or in Church Hill.

Enjoy ~
Janet, Dan, and the rest of the Broadfork crew
