Whether you favor a breakfast-for-dinner feast on Halloween night, or a leisurely brunch after enjoying that extra hour of sleep from Daylight Savings, this week’s lineup is sure to satisfy with cozy fixings like organic buckwheat groats to enjoy steaming hot with savory sausage patties from Skagit River Ranch or cinnamon-kissed orchard fruit, plus farm-fresh eggs and fresh-baked raisin bread. Also included: All-natural eggnog, seasonal beauties like golden Chanterelle mushrooms, Turk’s Turban squash and Taylor’s Gold pears, and a duo of fun Halloween treats. Enjoy!
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Fairhaven Mill Organic Buckwheat Groats
Nestled in the Skagit Valley, this family and farmer-owned certified-organic flour mill sources their grains from family farms across the country, guaranteeing freshness and quality from tilth to table. Similar to traditional steel-cut oats, the mill’s buckwheat groats have a pleasantly-nutty and earthy flavor and are a good source of protein, dietary fibers, magnesium, copper, and manganese—try them for breakfast this week, topped with your choice of savory sausage and seasonal vegetables, or with sweet apples, raisins and cinnamon.
Skagit River Ranch Breakfast Sausage
With a flavor profile that includes hints of sweet maple syrup and savory spices, this incredible breakfast sausage is made from 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.
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.
Domaine de Couron Côtes du Rhône 2017
Dark and full-bodied, this beautiful red wine is crafted by a family-run estate that lies in the tiny hamlet of Saint Marcel d’Ardeche in France. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, it is smooth upon opening with wild dark fruits, plum, pepper and olive notes.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens gives us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream. The “girls” are enjoying the crisp mornings and pleasant afternoons of the fall season, chasing bugs and eating tasty green weeds we pull from the garden.
Grace Harbor Farms Eggnog
This rich, creamy, classic-style eggnog is additive-free and crafted by a family-owned dairy located in Custer, Washington.
Pumpkin sugar cookies and “black cat” shortbread treats to munch on this Halloween week.
Taylor’s Gold pears, Cosmic Crisp apples and Meyer lemons.
Seasonal Organic Greens
Beautiful Lacinato kale.
Golden Chanterelle Mushrooms
With a firm texture and light, delicate flavor, locally foraged Chanterelle mushrooms lend earthy appeal to a variety of dishes.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes purple Napa cabbage, Jimmy Nardello and Italian sweet peppers, carrots, yellow onions, leeks, Delicata winter squash, Turk’s Turban squash, Pinto fingerling potatoes, celery and Hakurei turnips.
