What’s In The Box? June 15-21

Breakfast Favorites
Put on the coffee pot, pull out a skillet, and wake up to this week’s menu of farmhouse favorites: With smoky all-natural bacon and farm-fresh eggs to incorporate into your choice of scrambles, frittatas or quiches (see recipes for ideas!), plus locally baked cinnamon-raisin bread, sweet-tart apple-pear cider and silky Greek yogurt, it has just about everything you need to whip up an energizing brunch. Also flush with fragrant herbs like dill and mint, hand milled flour, local honey, and seasonal produce like Morel mushrooms, fingerling potatoes, asparagus, and tender-crisp salad greens, this box is an excellent way to say “good morning!”

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

Skagit River Ranch Bacon

The perfect compliment to this week’s menu, this smoky, locally-sourced bacon is also nitrate-free. The pampered pigs raised on the Skagit River Ranch in Sedro Woolley roam outdoors in certified-organic pastures to root, dig, and cavort as only happy pigs can, thriving on a diet of flax seed, corn and wheat.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Baked just for us by our favorite local bakery, this fresh-baked cinnamon raisin loaf makes for a delicious base to French toast.

Allview Orchards Honeycrisp Apple-Pear Cider

This crisp cider from Chelan’s Allview Orchards is made from a wonderful combination of Honey Crisp apples and Bartlett pears plucked straight from the orchards. Unfiltered for a clean flavor, the pasteurized cider is both smooth and sweet, with a mellow finish courtesy of the pears.

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 much more 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 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.

Cairnspring Mills Organic Edison All-Purpose Flour

This Burlington-based company is rediscovering the heart and soul of flour-making by producing small-batch, responsibly-grown flours made solely from wheat grown in the Pacific Northwest. Ground from a hard white spring wheat, this rich, nutty and buttery flour is perfect for your baking needs and beyond.

Local Honey

Locally produced wildflower honey from BeeWorks Farm in Bow, Washington.

Fresh Organic Greens

Enjoy a bounty of spring greens this week, including fancy salad mix, Little Gem lettuce, mixed baby lettuce and cantaloupe shoots.

Seasonal Organic Fruit & Vegetables

This week’s produce selection also includes Morel mushrooms from Foraged and Found Edibles, asparagus, golden fingerling potatoes and yellow onions, plus lemons and first-of-the-season cherries!

Fresh Garden Herbs

Fragrant dill and mint from the hoophouse and walled garden at Bella Luna.
