What’s In The Box? January 14-20
Rise and shine—it’s breakfast time! Cozy up to our first delivery of the year this week, a wintery, brunch-themed box that stars such farmhouse favorites as organic pork breakfast sausages, hearty hot breakfast cereal, signature scone mix, farm-fresh eggs and our own blueberry jam. Also accented by Lacinato kale, Cara Cara oranges, Brussels sprouts and Butternut squash, plus Cherry Valley Dairy’s sea-salt-kissed butter, our silky creme fraiche and wholesome nut butter bars, this lineup is sure to help you start your day off right.
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Bluebird Grain Farms Old World Hot Cereal Blend
This hot cereal from Bluebird Grain Farms in Winthrop, Washington features a blend of cracked rye, nutty cracked emmer and whole flax seed. Hearty and healthy, it is packed with high protein and minerals to give you lots of energy to kick-start the day.
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.
F&L Scone Mix
Top these hot-from-the-oven scones with a slathering of Cherry Valley Dairy butter and our blueberry jam.
Fresh Cinnamon-Raisin Bread
Made with natural starter, cinnamon and moist, chewy Flame raisins, this freshly-baked loaf is from our favorite bakery in Snohomish.
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
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens gives us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown and green. With the short days of winter, the girls are up with the sun to roam the outdoors. Bedtime is much earlier now, as we see them heading into their house to roost as the sun is going down.
Housemade Crème Fraîche
Our rich and silky crème fraîche is crafted in our farmstead creamery from pasteurized organic sweet cream.
Cherry Valley Dairy Cultured Butter with Gray Sea Salt
This silky-smooth butter from Duvall-based Cherry Valley Dairy combines sweet, grassy butter with artisan gray sea salt for a flavor profile that wows.
Big Spoon Roasters Figgy Chai & Apricot Pepita Bars
These handcrafted nut butter bars are made in small batches in Durham, North Carolina from the brand’s own fresh-roasted nut butters, plus high-quality, whole ingredients. These are two of our favorite flavors, one accented with sweet dried figs and traditional chai tea spices, and the other with golden apricots and toasted pepitas.
Made here at Bella Luna in our farmhouse kitchen from fresh-picked blueberries, organic cane sugar and pectin.

Butter lettuce, Lacinato and Red Russian kale and sweet pea shoots.
D’Anjou pears and Cara Cara oranges.
