What’s In The Box? April 11-17

Colors of the Rainbow
The two essential ingredients for a rainbow are not rarities during April, as we experience everything from bright sunshine to bouts of drizzle, and sometimes both at the same time. Thus, this week’s menu includes a “rainbow” of spring favorites to help you craft a cozy weekend brunch—from smoky bacon and farmstead eggs to fresh multigrain bread, housemade marmalade, and locally-roasted coffee beans. A wide assortment of vibrant produce, such as rainbow Swiss chard, rhubarb, purple sprouting broccoli, and baby golden beets, rounds out this colorful, springtime-fresh box.

Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:

Jack Mountain Sunday Bacon

Each smoky strip of dry-cured bacon from this Skagit Valley-based meat company is cut the “old school” way, by hand, and aged for a minimum of eight days. Smoked all day over hazelnut shells, the resulting bacon crisps up beautifully, while still maintaining a big meaty chew.

Multigrain Bread

Crafted in nearby Snohomish by our favorite bakery, this healthy freshly-baked loaf is made with locally-milled Shepherd’s Grain flour and seven different whole grains, plus a hint of honey and toasted sunflower seeds.

Cranberry-Orange Scones

These buttery scones blend sweet-tart cranberries and bright citrus flavors to provide a great start to your day.

Island Time Coffee Ferry Line Blues Roast

Crafted specifically for the Northwest aesthetic, Island Time Coffee Company sources only the finest, farm-direct, sustainable coffee beans from Latin America and Indonesia. All of the Whidbey Island-based company’s coffee is small-batch roasted, ensuring the best possible freshness, and this particular medium-roasted blend boasts a broad range of tangy and aromatic flavors to ensure a full-bodied cup of coffee without any bitterness.

Mille Prosecco Millesimato Extra-Dry DOC

Fabulously lively and light at every glass, this extra-dry Italian Prosecco features a bouquet of apple and pear notes as well as hints of light citrus.

Farm Fresh Eggs

As they spend more time outdoors with the improving weather, our heritage breed laying hens are enjoying an extra helping of grain to supplement their diet, and continue to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.

Housemade Crème Fraîche

This rich and silky crème fraîche is crafted by our in-house farmstead creamery, Bellsong, from pasteurized organic sweet cream.

F&L Orange Marmalade

Tangy and sweet-tart, this signature housemade marmalade is excellent spread on your morning toast!

Seasonal Organic Greens

Baby spinach and rainbow Swiss chard.

Seasonal Organic Produce

This week’s produce selection also includes French fingerling potatoes, sweet yellow onion, rhubarb, purple sprouting broccoli, purple top turnips, baby golden beets, leeks, Cara Cara oranges, blood oranges and lemons.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Garlic from the walled garden and hoophouse at Bella Luna Farms.
