With a Low of 14, Veggies Still! …plus mkt 12.17.2016

It’s going down to 14 degrees tonight. That will mean the end of any plants that are still in our fields. In the greenhouses, however, it stays vibrant:

We love radishes and we’d like to convert the entire world to loving radishes. Need bacon with your radishes to make you love them? Then this recipe is for you. Check out Bacon- Butter Radishes. You can thank us later.

We’re harvesting Chervil for the first time this week. It’s so fun to harvest something for the first time when it’s just 6 days until the Winter Solstice! General recipe suggestions encourage you to add Chervil to a saute of onions, mushrooms, and celery. Or add it to a simple brown butter sauce and enjoy it on top of fish, tofu, chicken, or beef.

Over the next two weeks, you can continue to purchase our vegetables and bread these ways:
– Visit our self-serve Farm Stand on Thursdays or Fridays. {We’ll post what’s available on Facebook and Instagram }
– Purchase through the online farmers’ market (www.FallLineFarms.com – use code “Holiday2016” to waive the subscription fee).
– Visit us at the Farmer’s Market @ St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in the West End of Richmond (indoors through March, Saturdays, 9-12).

***** We will be closed from December 25 – January 6. {There is no farmers’ market on December 31.} *****
