What’s In The Box? September 24-30

Feels Like Fall
Crisp apples, sweet-and-mellow pears, vibrant peppers and more: Fall is officially here! As the weather starts to cool, the farmhouse kitchen is heating up as we incorporate this bounty of produce into dishes indicative of this culinary-friendly season. Tie on an apron and get started in your own kitchen this week with ingredients for a cozy autumn brunch: Certified-organic buckwheat flour for incredible crêpes, both Snohomish Bakery granola and cinnamon-raisin bread, smoky bacon and farm-fresh eggs, plus Italian prosecco and a quartet of locally-crafted cocktail shrubs—cheers to fall!

Here’s what you’ll find in your box:

Fairhaven Mill Organic Buckwheat Flour

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. This particular buckwheat flour makes exceptional crêpes—see recipes for details!

Skagit River Ranch Bacon

Smoky, salty and savory, this 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.

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.

Snohomish Bakery Granola

This nut-free, hand-crafted granola is made with warming spices like cinnamon and cloves, plus oats, toasted seeds and local honey. It is fantastic served with fall fruit and Greek yogurt, splashed with cold milk or sprinkled on top of this week’s crêpes for a delightful crunch.

Mille Prosecco Millesimato Extra-Dry DOC

Fabulously lively and light at every glass, this extra-dry Italian Prosecco is wonderful mixed into a cocktail with a bouquet of apple and pear notes, as well as hints of light citrus.

Girl Meets Dirt Mini Shrub Set

This wonderful four-pack of cocktail mixers from Orcas Island-based Girl Meets Girl includes the brand’s signature lemon-lavender, Island pear, Island plum and ruby-spiced apple flavors. Pick your fave and add a splash to a glass of this week’s Prosecco for a fun brunch cocktail!

Farm Fresh Eggs

Busy scratching through the straw mulch in their spacious outdoor run looking for tasty bugs and worms, our heritage breed laying hens supply us with fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown, beige and cream.

Seasonal Organic Greens

Indigo and Lusia radicchio, arugula and pea shoots.

Seasonal Fruit

Reliance grapes, melon and a beautiful mix of fall orchard fruit—Asian pears, plums, quince and apples.

Seasonal Organic Vegetables

This week’s produce selection also includes sweet corn, heirloom tomatoes, celery, Austrian Crescent fingerling potatoes, broccoli, purple scallions, Jimmy Nardello peppers, sweet fennel, Tropea onions, Badger Flame beets, cherry tomatoes and carrots.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Garlic, parsley, thyme and basil from the walled garden and hoophouse at Bella Luna Farms.
