Farmstand Product List February 6-12, 2013

February can be a tough time for local food lovers. Farmers’ stashes of storage crops dwindle. Snowy weather and lack of sun can slow or stop crops in even the warmest greenhouses. But our diligent off-season suppliers like Landisdale Farm are still bringing us leafy greens like RAINBOW CHARD and limited quantities of GREEN KALE, BABY SPINACH, and BABY LETTUCE MIX. The root cellar is looking pretty good too: this week, we’ll have zesty RED GARLIC from our friends at Tuscarora Organic Growers Co-Op, along with beautiful yellow RUSSIAN BANANA FINGERLING POTATOES and hard-to-find CELERIAC—perfect for grating into a raw slaw or salad to lend some fresh, celery flavor to wintry dishes. Add some color with SCARLET TURNIPS from Lancaster Farm Fresh—they’re so tender and crisp, you can pretend they’re hefty radishes.  Or, grab a RED BEET and pickle them to a deep crimson—no water bath needed for this refrigerator pickle recipe. Winter isn’t just a time for getting reacquainted with our tuberous veggie friends—it’s also when we make big plans for the coming growing season with the farmers we work with. The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) Conference is a place we city dwellers connect face-to-face each year with the hardworking people who grow the food we bring you every day. We’ll be there in State College this weekend, on the lookout for new and emerging farmers working to bring sustainably grown food to the marketplace. Stay tuned for updates on exciting sources for the 2013 growing season!

One more thing: The farmers at Dutch Meadows Organic Dairy—who bring us grass-fed, certified organic RAW MILK in those beautiful glass bottles—have changed suppliers, and it’s now a bit more of a challenge for us to carry their products.  It is in stock (and now arrives on Wednesdays)but please bear with us as we adjust to and evaluate this new arrangement.
