My friend Mary recently shared with me what she did with the ginger she received in her CSA share. She made Ginger, Turmeric & Lemon Honey Bombs! With the arrival of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I found this to be a timely treat. Add a teaspoon or two to hot water, add it to tea or juice, or slather it on bread. This supercharged mix will nourish your body, mind and spirit.
Just in time for cold weather and snow! Got a crowd to feed? A batch of our chili is a warming meal. A gourmet blend of our farm’s own tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, garlic and blended peppers is sure to please. We have a mild and a hot chili mix. Simple and fast to prepare, it’s a great taco seasoning too.
Our farm is growing vegetables for your table. You can now order our fresh, local greens for pick up at three locations including the farm. Check out the details here!
Summer is finally here! The longest day of the year was yesterday and everything is growing at a fast pace. Including the weeds, but that’s another story. The long days mean that the zucchini needs to be harvested every day. Here are some that we missed and we ended up with huge squash!
Never fear though because it can be prepared so many different ways. Baked, pickled, battered and fried, or a bowl of fresh zoodles dressed simply with onion, apple cider vinegar,olive oil, and salt and pepper.
With a portion of my giant zucchini, I decided to make a spice cake. This is a super simple and fast snack cake to have handy for summer. The zucchini makes it dense and moist. I made two different sauces to top it. For Doug, I topped it with Caramel Pecan Sauce. For me, I made Lemon Sauce. Here’s the recipe. Enjoy! Continue reading

The Shiitake mushrooms are loving the cooler weather and shorter days. We’re bringing the harvest to Webb City Farmers Market on Saturday. The mix of the strains that we grow are Miss Happiness, Bolachka and Native Harvest. A wonder to grow and a delight to eat!
Here’s another simple tasty way to prepare Shiitakes. This recipe is an adaptation of one from our spawn supplier, Field and Forest Products. Enjoy!
We have had a couple of freezes and so the peppers in the garden are no more but, we still have a few plants in the fall high tunnel. In addition to bell peppers, we have pablanos and anaheims for roasting for a few more weeks. Plus jalapenos, cayennes and garden salsa peppers. See you at Webb City Farmers Market on Saturday!
