CSA week 7, 2015

BOSTON PUBLIC MARKET! BPM

AAAAAHHHHHHH! Need I say more? Grand opening on Thursday and we are hoping it rocks! Wish us luck and please be sure to stop in when in the area not that we will be there (just kidding…Stillman’s is there! :)) 5 days a week 8-8.

Here’s some recipes:

Arugula Pesto

This is from Gwyneth Paltrow’s book, It’s All Good. I realize this would be better to include when we have leeks, but it’s a thought 🙂 Beet Greens Soup

Baked Eggplant this is a standby, AND, it freezes extremely well. Just freeze cooked eggplants on a cookie sheet, go ahead and crowd them. When frozen, remove to a container/baggy. In the winter, take out what you need and rebake them to heat. Just as good as in the summer!

Farm Dirt

So, if you missed it, we are stretched as thin as can be with prepping for BPM.

Meanwhile, there are turkey poults everywhere on the farm, deer in everything, the hawks are all busy – especially the Coopers Hawk.

It has been nice to see so many members out here roaming the farm. We feel it is so important to see where you food grows and the love and care with which we do it. Please remember, if you do come out to the New Braintree farm for a visit, to park in the barnyard of our house driveway and not in our fields or in the entrances of the fields. Also, I leave maps of the farm on the bench in our house driveway.

Happy eating!

Eat well,

About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. The farm also has several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Boston, Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, New Braintree and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!
