This season we are offering pop-up shares on a weekly basis instead of a season-long CSA share.
To get on our e-mail list to receive an approximately once-weekly note about the farm and our vegetable offerings as well as our classes, simply enter your name and email at the bottom of the page.
Thanks for being part of our farm and our lives!
Your order will be in a bag or box with your last name on it next to our red pack shed at the farm.
We are using cloth bags and reusable boxes when possible instead of plastic and ask that you repack your share into your own container(s).
Note: This week you have two choices of share sizes, a Fox Box with 6 items and a Lion's Share with 10. You can also chose to purchase a share to donate. Or just order by the item!
- Order as much or as little as you like.
- All produce needs to be washed before you eat it. (Though we do endeavor to make it squeaky clean!)
- You may pay by check, cash or Venmo (@Annie-Hasz), but confirm your order with me first. firstname.lastname@example.org
- We will pick your order fresh for you Thursday morning!
Pop up Shares!
Summer Veggie Share, "Fox Box"
This share includes: rainbow cherry tomatoes, 3 bulbs of garlic, slicing tomatoes, 2 cucumbers (some of our very last of the season!), 1/2 lb organic shiitake mushrooms, and edamame on the stalk.
This is the perfect time to grill shiitakes -- just marinate the caps and then plop on the grill. And, the edamame are a favorite here. We pull the pods off the stalks and simmer them in salty water for about 10-15 minutes, until the beans inside are tender. Then we serve them in a bowl with the beans still in the pods. My little guy enjoys snacking on them just this way.
Your share will be in a cloth bag and box on the table outside the pack shed Thursday between 12 and 7 PM. Please transfer the contents of your share to your own bag or container: we will wash and reuse the bag. Thank you!
Summer Veggie Share, "Lion's Share"
This share includes everything in the pop up Fox Box (garlic, cucumbers, shiitake mushrooms, cherry and slicing tomatoes, and edamame) as well as 2 crispy delicious little gem lettuces, our first red and orange sweet italian pepper, one Asian eggplant, and one organic little baby flower watermelon from Lancaster Farm Fresh.
Your share will be in a cloth bag on the table outside the packshed Thursday between 12 and 7 PM. Please transfer the contents of your share to your own bag or container: we will wash and reuse the bag. Thank you!
Grassfed Lamb: deposit for whole lamb
Make a deposit to reserve your whole lamb for this fall.
Here's the info on our flock:
These lambs were born in winter 2020-2021 and graze all through the grass-growing seasons, eating hay in the winter to supplement. They are from our friend's flock, a flock which we have contributed to and mixed animals with over the years! These lambs eat not only grass but a wide range of forbs and herbs in their pasture and we give them kelp, salt, and other basic mineral supplements to ensure their health. We wormed them naturally mixing up garlic, mugwort and black walnut leaves. The flock gets a new slice of our 6 acre pasture every couple days, keeping them and the grass in best condition.
We will have lamb available during fall of this year; the exact dates TBD. We are selling them as whole lambs, meaning you get to order the cuts you prefer and the type of processing. We get a mixture of roasts, ground lamb, ribs, cubed stew meat, and chops. Since we starting raising them ourselves lamb has become our favorite meat and with a meal of potatoes, lamb burgers and tomatoes and salad we can eat food that was 100% raised on the farm.
We charge $6.60 per pound, hanging weight and a $65 butchering fee. If you would also like the pelt or sheepskin, you can buy one for $75 if you are already buying a whole lamb. We're expecting our lambs to have hanging weights between 35 and 50 lb.
We are now asking for $100 deposits for the lamb as we arrange butcher dates. You can also pay your deposit with cash or check.
You'll need about 2 cubic feet of freezer space for the cuts from one whole lamb.
You can split the lamb with someone else, but just have one person pay and communicate with us or the butcher about processing and cuts.
Hanging weight is the weight of the animal minus the pelt, the feet, organs and other inedible parts. The total weight of your cuts will be slightly less than the hanging weight due to deboning & trimming.
We will sell pelts separately as well later in the season for $100 each.
and more veggies!
Zucchini Squash Mix - 4 medium sized zukes!
We love to handle the steady flow of zucchini and squash by roasting (slice thin and get them golden brown), grilling, and sauteeing. This brings out the rich and nutty flavors in these summer jewels.
There are also Zoodles -- aka Zucchini Noodles -- and fritters and of course, zucchini bread. Time to explore the world of zucchini-based cuisine....let us know if you make any new kitchen discoveries worth sharing.
Cucumbers - 3 slicing cucumbers
Beautiful cucumbers are here! Refreshing and crunchy...perfect for salads and snacks. And bread and butter pickles. Nico will walk around just chowing on a cucumber every day for the rest of cucumber season. A friend who used to volunteer farming with us told me that cucumbers are her favorite hiking snack. Essentially a gatorade in a vegetable.
Green Italian Sweet Peppers - 1 lb
Catch the early-bird pepper wave! We like to sautee green peppers with onion and mix with a rice or grain dish, use as a relish for hot dog, or add to sausage for a delicious dinner.
Jalapeno Peppers - 1/3 lb
Our first Jalapenos -- time for stuffing and salsa-ing and gnawing on them while eating dinner (I watch the men in my life do this.....maybe this also appeals to you!)
Garlic, 1/4 lb
German Extra Hardy Garlic: large cloves in a hardneck garlic that I've been saving and selecting since 2012. Garlic is the king of the kitchen, making almost every savory dish taste better. Our garlic is now cured, meaning it is lower-moisture with a dried paper skin and ready to store. Keep in a dark cool spot in your kitchen.
Tomatillo, Purple-Blushed - 1 lb
Our first tomatillos! Roast for salsa verde or chop fresh for salsa or salad. A mix of green and purple-blushed.
Tomatoes - for Freezing, Canning, Sauce - 10 lb
This is a mix of our paste and roma tomatoes and our "seconds" slicers and heirlooms. They may have a blemish or a strange shape, or have a split or be a little more ripe than we like to distribute. They will be a mix of heirlooms, slicers, and the meaty (and very sauce-worthy!) campari tomatoes. We usually use a mix of all of these for sauces we make at home and the ones we contract to the cannery.
A mix of our summer deliciousness that we can't otherwise sell.
King Harry New Potatoes - 2 lb
King Harry are large white potatoes that are our favorite for roasting and mashing. These are new potatoes -- meaning, thin skins and not cured. They are delicacies only available for a short time in the summer! Scoop 'em up.
Adirondack Blue Potatoes - 2 lb
Blue skin and blue-purple flesh. True gems of the soil. They taste good too! These are New potatoes -- meaning, not yet cured with a thin skin. Handle with care and cook them soon!
Edamame - 1.5 lb
Edamame on the stalk! Just pluck them off and toss them in salted water to simmer for 10-15 minutes until the beans inside are tender. We serve in the pod as a snack. And sometimes shell to blend the beans into a dip.
Tomatoes for Freezing, Canning, Sauce - 20 lb
A mix of our seconds tomatoes -- heirlooms, slicers, and meaty and sweet camparis.
Cilantro, 1 bunch
Cilantro for summer taco magic! And for the first batch of salsa with our first big harvest of tomatoes.
Garden Tour - June 26
A 2-hour tour of Broad Wing Farm and our very intensive veggie garden on Saturday June 26 from 9 - 11 AM. We've been growing here for nearly 8 years and have changed our practices dramatically in that time. I'll walk you through all of our crops and share what we've learned to grow a much more productive and lovely garden, including tarping, composting, fertilizing, irrigating, flipping beds and learning from gardening failures. And, I'll also give a lot of details about the unusual plants we're growing this season, including the many herbs in our Upick Garden and how to harvest and use them in your kitchen and life.
Pay what works for you! If there's some other amount that makes more sense for you, or you'd like to pay in cash please send an email to me at email@example.com.
