What’s Available through the Online Order System
The following items are available now to order for pickup or delivery on Saturday, November 6.
Hattie’s Garden’s new microgreen endeavor is bearing fruit! We now are happy to offer arugula microgreens, mizuna microgreens, mixed microgreens, pea tendrils, and wasabi microgreens. They look gorgeous and are so good to eat! From the garden, we are harvesting young bok choi and include two or more heads per order of this tender delicacy. Stay tuned.
For much larger, full grown heads, Dittmar’s Joi Choi Bok Choy is excellent. Our carrots were cleaned out by enthusiastic customers and the next bed will be ready in another week. In the meantime, enjoy beautiful red radishes, hakurei turnips and plenty of salad mixed, including arugula, mesclun and lettuce mix. For herbs, we have lemongrass, fresh dill, fresh cilantro, fresh parsley as well as fresh rosemary.
Chapel’s Country Creamery pastured, grass-fed, dry-aged beef has wonderful reviews from our customers. We are happy to provide you with nice steaks, beautiful lean ground beef, top round roasts, stew meat and beef liver. Grass fed (pastured) beef, dry-aged for a month is about the best beef you can get. We are selling exclusively for Chapel’s this fall as they have only two steers as they start this part of their business.
Their pork has also received much praise and we are glad to have new Sweet Italian Sausage and Regular Bratwurst back in stock. We have plenty of bacon, pork chops, loose sausage and ham slices and hams for you, and with Haass Family Butcher Shop on board, they also make the very best scrapple around.s !
Chapel’s has an onsite creamery where they produce wonderful fresh and aged cheese from their pastured, grass-fed dairy cows. Their fresh Queso Fresco and Paneer is both inexpensive and delicious. They have a nice beer washed cheddar, Amber16 that is served at Harbour Restaurant along with their delicious Chesapeake Brie. My favorites are the hard alpine Woodbine, their soft, delicious Bay Blue (blue cheese), and their signature mild Chapel Cheddar. And Smooth Sails is a sophisticated Fromage Blanc spreading cheese with an assertive tang. We eat it on water crackers with one of Backyard Jams & Jellies hot pepper jellies.
Stag Run Farm brings us new varieties every week and this week we are adding to the line-up Granny Smith (wonderful for cooking or tart eating), Arkansas Black (highly sought after heirloom apple is very firm and tart and said to improve its flavor in your refrigerator), and Kieffer Pears, which are native to the Philadelphia area from around the mid 19th century. This pear is a cross between a Bartlett pear and an Asian sand pear. It has a firm flesh, nice aroma and is sweet, crisp and juicy. Best ripened in your refrigerator.
This is all in addition to their Braeburn (nice combination of sweet and tart flavor), Golden Delicious (sweet and tangy, great for eating), JonaGold (nice crispy large-sized apple with perfect sweet and tart balance), Valstar (sweet and tangy, great for eating), Fuji (sweet and juicy flavor, with a subtle refreshing tart undertone), Cameo (sweet, crisp and juicy), and Rome (a great cooking apple).
Dittmar Family Farms raises excellent free-range chickens, and this week they have whole and half birds, as well as chicken liver for you. Dittmar produce includes romaine and summer crisp head lettuce, purple top turnips and large heads of Joi Choi Bok Choy.
From Davidson’s Exotic Mushrooms, we Portabella, Shiitake, Cremini, and Maiitake mushrooms. Lion’s Mane (Pom Pom) are unavailable for a couple of weeks.
302 Aquaponics has plenty of aquaponically grown salad ingredients, and beautiful tilapia fish they raise as part of their aquaponics system. There are no chemicals or pesticides in their farming.
AlaskaWild Seafoods family-run business has Pacific Cod, Pacific Rockfish, and Sockeye Salmon fresh frozen directly from the boat and flown to the east coast every week. Their smoked salmon is in stock and the Coho Salmon will soon be in season.
Rounding out the line-up are wonderful free-range chicken eggs from Twin Posts and honey from Chrissy’s Bees (part of Stag Run Farm).
