Summer Shares Week of 6/7/15

Image-1.jpg


VEGETABLE SHARES 


Mini Head Lettuce/New Beat Farm, Knox 
New Beat Farm's head lettuce will be a staple in this summer's veggie shares.  Mini heads are great, as the leaf size is sandwich ready and when split in half some varieties make for an appealing individual salad serving size. We particularly like the variety Truchas, the mini red romaine in your share. This variety has been a big hit with the restaurants we work with. 

 
Cilantro & Dill 
New Beat Farm is also growing us a variety of herbs this summer. The impressive cilantro and dill bunches found in your share are also from their Knox, Maine certified organic horse powered farm.  Be sure to visit New Beat Farm at the Belfast Farmers' Market this summer!

Asparagus/Todd Family Farm, Dixmont
The asparagus in this week's share was grown by Cindy Todd.  Some of you may know her husband, Don Todd, who works for the Farm Service Agency. Limited amounts of this perennial crop are available throughout Maine as asparagus takes 5 years from planting to yield and requires continual maintenance well after spring production has past. It takes a patient and talented gardener to grow asparagus at any volume. Over the years we are hoping to encourage the growth of this popular spring crop.   This chem-free asparagus is great eaten raw or cooked.  Try using a vegetable peeler to create strips of asparagus that can be added to pasta or salads. 

Kale/Freedom Village Farm, Freedom
Freedom Village Farm will be a regular supplier of leafy greens for this summer's produce shares.  This family of five cultivates a beautiful 4 1/2 acres in lovely Freedom, Maine. Looking for a summer preparation for kale?   Try massaged kale salad.


French Breakfast Radish 
Also provided by Freedom Village Farm for this week's share.  FVF grows french breakfast radishes for popular neighboring restaurant The Lost Kitchen, where Chef Erin French serves them throughout the summer with whipped farm butter, maldon sea salt and freshly sliced sourdough bread. 

...for those of you who ordered large shares, the micro greens are also coming from Village Farm


Spring Onions/Six River Farm, Bowdoinham 
Unity Food Hub is excited to be working with these pro farmers out of Bowdoinham.  These certified organic spring onions, (variety Bridger), were overwintered in their greenhouse.  We doubled up on this kitchen staple (and other share items) for our large share members. 



Baby spinach/ Fishbowl FarmBowdoinham 
Chris and Gallit will be growing baby greens for Unity Food Hub all summer share season long! Former heavy hitter at the Portland Farmers' Market, in recent years, Fishbowl Farm has shifted gears towards the wholesale market and perfecting their greens production.  We hope you enjoy their baby greens selection as much as we do!


Rhubarb Early Grey Preserves/Turtle Rock Farm, Brunswick
Jenn, owner of Turtle Rock Farm, is a former chef at Five Fifty Five, a top end restaurant in Portland... and it shows!  Her line of seasonal value added items are creative and delicious.  Here's the description of this week's treat from Jenn's website--- found in large shareholders' boxes: "featuring organic and locally grown rhubarb, paired with bergamot scented early grey.  You can 'take tea' with this jam any time of the day!  Pair with cheeses, use as a savory cooking glaze, enjoy with breakfast, dessert, and of course tea time.  Let the delicate citrus notes and honey sweetened rhubarb lead your imagination."  


Soldier Beans/Freedom Bean Co., Albion 
This week's plant protein selection comes from Freedom Bean Co.  This heirloom bean is great as a baking or soup bean. The name comes from the marking at the eye of the bean that resemble an 18th century soldier.  Find a simple recipe for  Maine baked beans here. 


MEAT SHARES           

BEEF: the beef (ground beef in small share, filet mignon in large) is from a Highland cow, a Scottish heritage breed.  This cow was exclusively fed grass (grass  fed and finished) and comes from Highland Farm in Troy, processed by Maple Lane Farm in Charleston. Check out their Facebook page for pictures of this adorable breed of cow!

PORK: the ribs in the small share are coming from Libby Farm in Lincoln, Maine, where Waldo Libby raises antibiotic free hogs.  The pig was processed at Maple Lane Farm, an inspected facility in Charleston, Maine

CHICKEN: the whole chicken in the large meat share was raised by Sweetland Farm in Albion.  The Unity Food Hub has worked with Matthew and Amy Dow of Sweetland Farm to move broilers off of GMO feed (now exclusively GMO free) by providing a higher price per pound. 


DAIRY SHARES        

MILK & YOGURT: Andy & Caitlin of The Milkhouse in South China supplied the jersey whole milk and maple greek yogurt for this week's shares.  Their products will be a staple of dairy shares throughout the summer! 

CHEESE: The Fredriksons of Fredriksons Creamery in Albion provided the spreadable chive chèvre included in this week's share.  Their goat cheese comes from their 8 goat herd of Saanen goats.  They are hoping to double production within the year.  

EGGS: Eggs are supplied by Win Pressor Farm of Unity.  Irvin and his family produce the feed for their free range chickens at their farm, ensuring that the eggs are GMO-free and that their chickens' diets are supplemented with top quality ingredients.  The quality shows in the bright orange yolks!
