Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Mixed Summer Tomatoes
They just keep coming: These ripe, juicy tomatoes-large and small-are ready to be enjoyed in all their incredibly luscious glory.
First of the season corn, crunchy and sweet!
A favorite in Italian cuisine, and also a favorite here at the farm, these fresh baby artichokes are incredibly delicious and nutrient-rich.
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.
La Crema Chardonnay 2020
Aromas of Meyer lemon, nectarine and jasmine are followed by flavors of crisp green apple, tangerine and yellow plum in this beautiful Sonoma Coast chardonnay. On the palate, the wine is concentrated and juicy with a lingering finish
Farm Fresh Eggs
As they spend lots of time outdoors in their run, our small flock of heritage breed laying hens are enjoying succulent popweed pulled from the gardens along with an extra helping of grain to supplement their diet, continuing to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.
Tunawerth Creamery Greek Yogurt
Perfectly-creamy, yet delightfully-tangy, this lovely yogurt hails from a small, family-operated creamery located in Tenino, Washington.
Crafted from toasted ground hulled sesame, this rich, nutty butter is delicious incorporated into salad dressings, dips, and spreads such as hummus.
Seasonal Organic Greens
Cegolaine and Little Gem baby lettuces, plus Swiss chard and pac choi.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes fennel, cucumbers, baby carrots, Italian eggplant, celery and Tropea onions.
Fresh Garden Herbs
Garlic, thyme, rosemary, tarragon and parsley from the herb garden at Bella Luna.
