Rise and shine—it’s breakfast time! This week, cozy up to a brunch-themed box that stars such farmhouse favorites as organic pork breakfast sausages, cracked farro porridge and dry apple cider, plus cinnamon-raisin bread, maple syrup and farm-fresh eggs from our heritage breed hens to help you whip up a sweet baked French toast for the centerpiece of your meal. Also accented by Austrian Crescent fingerling potatoes, Brussels sprouts, juicy Cara Cara oranges, Fuji apples and a beautiful mix of early spring greens, as well as fragrant herbs, this lineup is sure to help you start your day off right.
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.
Bluebird Grain Farm Organic Cracked Farro Porridge
Used in Northern Italy as a savory porridge, this milled-to-order organic cracked farro porridge from Winthrop’s Bluebird Grain Farm is a nutritious whole-grain cereal that can be used as a hot cereal or prepared polenta-style with fresh herbs and roasted vegetables or meat. Cracked in a fine grind from the farm’s signature whole-grain Emmer Farro, this porridge is an excellent source of protein, fiber, phosphorus and trace minerals, plus it’s naturally sweet, rich, and nutty with a creamy texture.
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.
Republic of Vermont Maple Syrup
Pure Vermont sweet maple syrup for all your breakfast needs.
Greenwood Cider Company Dry Apple Cider
This signature libation from Seattle-based Greenwood Cider Company is crafted from a blend of Washington-grown apples and finished with heirloom and wild apples sourced from local farms, small homesteads, and abandoned orchards to minimize food waste. Unfiltered, light-bodied, and very dry with hints of apple peel, lime, and fresh straw, this cider is ultra-refreshing; we bet you can’t stop at just one glass.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens are on an early-to-bed, later-to-rise schedule with the short daylight hours. As they spend more time snug in their coop, the “girls” are enjoying an extra helping of grain to supplement their diet, continuing to give us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.
Fuji apples, Cara Cara oranges and fresh lemons.
Fresh Organic Greens
