Rise n’ Shine
It’s breakfast time! This week’s lineup stars a bevy of late-summer favorites—cherry tomatoes, Persian cucumbers, Japanese eggplant, green beans, sweet corn and more—all complemented by breakfast-ready ingredients such as organic link sausages, cinnamon-raisin bread and farm-fresh eggs. Also including organic Greek yogurt, apple-pear cider, crisp salad greens, ripe yellow peaches, melon and Italian prunes, plus fragrant garden greens, this box will help you start the day off right—so pour yourself a cup of locally-roasted coffee and greet the day.

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

Skagit River Ranch Breakfast Sausages

With a flavor profile that includes hints of sweet maple syrup and savory spices, these incredible breakfast sausage links 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.

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.

Island Time Coffee Deception Dark Roast

Crafted specifically for the Northwest aesthetic, Island Time Coffee Company sources only the finest, farm-direct, sustainable coffee beans from Latin America and Indonesia. All of the Whidbey Island-based company’s coffees are small-batch roasted, ensuring the best possible freshness. This particular dark blend features a mixture of Italian-roasted Latin-American beans and boasts distinctive bittersweet notes and rich, earthy tones.

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.

The Vincent Board Track Racer Rosé 2022

Crafted from a combination of Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah grapes, this crisp, dry wine from Mark Ryan Winery features a supple finish, with refreshing acidity and a lithe texture.

Farm Fresh Eggs

As they spend lots of 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.

Samish Bay Organic Greek Yogurt

This perfectly-creamy, yet delightfully-tangy pure strained yogurt hails from a certified-organic, 200-acre dairy farm in Skagit County that produces gorgeous artisan cheeses and yogurts crafted from the milk of their herd of Milking Shorthorn cows.

Summer Fruit

Farthest North melon, yellow peaches and beautiful Italian prunes.

Fresh Organic Greens

Mini red Romaine, red and green Shiso, cantaloupe shoots and Little Gem lettuce.

Seasonal Organic Fruit & Vegetables

This week’s beautiful bounty of produce also includes Rio de Oro peppers, Lesya peppers, mixed summer squash, cherry tomatoes, Persian cucumber, Chioggia beets, Japanese eggplant, green beans, fennel and Honey Select corn.

Fresh Garden Herbs

Italian parsley, thyme and Tualco heirloom garlic from the walled garden at Bella Luna, as well as roselle, an ornamental edible plant related to okra whose burgundy calyxes can be used to add a hibiscus-like tart, fruity flavor to dried teas, jellies, syrups, and sauces.
