What’s In The Box? February 8-14

Good Morning
We’re back, and just in time for brunch, too: Cuddle up in some sweatpants, put on a pot of coffee and perk up your taste buds with this week’s selection of farm-fresh brunch fare. Featuring such highlights as organic breakfast sausages from Skagit River Ranch, freshly-baked Challah bread, Mille prosecco, locally-roasted coffee, and both farm-fresh eggs from our heritage breed hens and rich duck eggs, this delivery also includes fingerling potatoes, a wealth of citrus fruit, garden-grown herbs and two delightful cheeses from our creamery. Rise and shine, it’s breakfast time!

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

Skagit River Ranch Breakfast Sausage

With a flavor profile that includes hints of sweet maple syrup and savory spices, these incredible breakfast sausages are made from the all-natural pork raised on the Skagit River Ranch in Sedro-Woolley. These pampered pigs roam outdoors in certified-organic pasture land to root and dig, thriving on a diet of flax seed, corn and wheat.

Challah Bread

Baked just for us by our favorite bakery in Snohomish, this fresh loaf boasts a sweet, rich flavor thanks to a traditional base of silky eggs and Shepherd’s Grain flour, plus a touch of sugar.

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 snug in their coop, 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.

Duck Eggs

With near-transparent egg whites and color-rich oversize yolks, these local duck eggs are a chef’s dream, lending flavorful appeal to a variety of dishes.

Bellsong Creamery Fromage Blanc & Crème Fraîche

Both of these creamy, dreamy provisions are made in-house by our farmstead creamery, Bellsong. Our beautiful fromage blanc cheese is crafted from locally-sourced milk; a wonderfully-creamy and just slightly tangy cheese, it can be used in place of ricotta or mascarpone in recipes. Then, our crème fraîche utilizes pasteurized organic sweet cream to lend a silky-smooth and rich texture. Enjoy!

Seasonal Organic Greens

Beautiful Bibb lettuce and a mix of organic braising greens.

Seasonal Citrus Fruit

Meiwa kumquats, Meyer lemons, Makrut limes, limes and mango Valencia oranges.

Seasonal Organic Vegetables

This week’s produce selection also includes Austrian Crescent fingerling potatoes and Cipollini onions.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Thyme and parsley from the walled garden and hoophouse at Bella Luna Farms.
