Dear Members,

this week's CSA share is for Weekly Members only.  Bi-weekly shares will arrive next Thursday, along with monthly Protein shares.

This week we have a small treat for you - Zucchini Bread Muffins.  They are a bit dry, so I recommend (highly) that you wrap them in a damp paper towel, heat them in the microwave for 15 seconds, and slather them with butter and honey or jam.  We've included a bit of icing, too, if you prefer.  Still, these muffins need to be rehydrated and heated before applying the icing. They contain nuts, flour and dairy, so please do not eat them if you have food allergies, until you check out the ingredients list below.


Packing in the Nutrients

Look at the nutrients your vegetables are providing this week! The best part is that all of these vegetables were harvested yesterday and so the nutrients are preserved and available to you.

Chard packs a whopper amount of Vit A, while Bok Choy loads in plenty of potassium, and Broccoli becomes an important source of Vit C and Folate. 

Humans used to have much more potassium than salt in their diets. Today, that ratio has flipped upside down, causing serious health problems. Balance YOUR salt levels by loading up with potassium. This reduces fluid build up in veins and tissues. 

Put these nutrients into your bodies!!  All number are per serving:

Featured Recipes

I was trying to think of a way to save you from reading through each vegetable description so this week I've listed some featured recipes upfront for you. 

1. Broccoli, Chard and Bean Soup - uses our broccoli, chard and onion; garnish with onion scape.

2. Broccoli Scrambled Eggs - uses our broccoli and eggs and is a fast recipe to use with any greens for any meal! Be warned: our broccoli cooks really fast because it is fresh, so take that into consideration. 

3. Grilled Lettuce with Buttermilk-Chive Dressing - uses our lettuce and onion scape. If you don't want to make the dressing, use your favorite or none at all.

4. Perfectly Grilled Onions - Uses our onions and onion scapes.

5. Shredded Collard Greens with Roasted Sweet Potatoes - uses our collards and your sweet potatoes, feta or goat cheese, and cashews or other nuts. 

6. How to Prep for Collard Green Wraps - Ditch bread and make the best low-carb sandwiches out of Collard Greens. Collards are about the only green that truly holds up well to a wrap. See other wrap recipes in the Collard Greens section below. 

7. Bok Choy with Garlic Honey and Soy - uses our Bok Choy. We also add chopped onions to this recipe.


CSA Shares - Weekly Members Only

  

Rainbow Chard - This jewel look and tastes better than ever. Much more flavorful than than any chard you can buy in a store, simply chopping these beautiful greens releases amazing aroma and flavor. Most people remove the colorful stems and chop them separately so they can precede the more tender greens in the heated pan. Rainbow chard goes well in salads, on sandwiches, sautéed as a side dish, or in a smoothie. Try Dark Leafy Greens Fritters for a new family favorite! Or, spruce up those store bought tomatoes with our bacon in Swiss Chard + Walnut Stuffed Tomatoes. If you prefer not to go all the way to the stuffed tomato stage, I think chard with walnuts and bacon is a great idea!

Broccoli - Warning: Our broccoli is very fresh and will cook extremely fast! Overcooking it will cause it to be mushy, so don't. Try Broccoli, Chard and Bean Soup for a healthy and complete meal. Or, the very simple Broccoli Sauté with Garlic. For a complete breakfast, lunch or dinner, a farm favorite is Broccoli Scrambled Eggs. This recipe works with just about any green, by the way. 

Lettuce - Use the loose leafs for sandwiches, salads and garnishes. The heads would be great on the grill as in Grilled Lettuce with Buttermilk-Chive Dressing. Use your onion scapes in place of chives. 

Onion - Beautiful and delicious, try roasting or grilling them or chop them into eggs, sautéed greens, salads, anything. These would be absolutely terrific caramelized on a pizza, frittata or burger.  

Onion Scape - This green section of the onion makes a great garnish. Chop finely and use in a dip or just sprinkle on top of your favorite soup (mine is Amy's Organic Low Sodium canned soups when I don't make my own. See How to Cook with Scapes for ideas on cooking and storing your onion scapes. The bottom line: just cook them just like you would onions. 

Collard Greens - Try Biscuits with Pancetta, Collard Greens and Eggs. Don't get fussy; use canned biscuits, scrambled the eggs, our bacon and the the caramelized onions you cooked above. Delicious! And, oh good grief! This is just too good: Shredded Collard Greens with Sweet Potatoes. Collard wraps are the bomb! See Favorite Recipes above for how to prep the collard leaves, then try some of these favorite fillings: Hummus Collard Wraps. Mix and Match Wraps. Peanut Chicken Collard Wrap. Don't be constrained, use anything - beans, rice, avocado, chicken, beef, pork, other greens... it's all good and super healthy!

Bok Choy - Bok Choy is a farm favorite. We love Bok Choy with Garlic, Honey and Soy

Zucchini Bread Muffins with Icing - These were made with shredded zucchini we froze last summer. We apologize for them being dry, but they work well if you wrap them in a damp paper towel, heat in the microwave for 15 seconds, then slather with butter and honey, maple syrup or jam. Add icing if you prefer. Muffin ingredients are: zucchini, butter, eggs, vanilla, bakings soda, salt, all purpose flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, walnuts, raisins. Icing ingredients: Cream Cheese, butter, confectioner's sugar, vanilla. 


Protein Shares - Weekly Members

This week, we found beautiful, thick, meaty ribs and steaks for your Memorial Day or anytime grill or oven. PLEASE REMEMBER TO THAW THESE BEAUTIFUL CUTS IN THE REFRIGERATOR FOR 5 DAYS BEFORE COOKING FOR THE BEST FLAVOR AND TENDERNESS. 

Beef Ribs - Ribs need to book slowly and our favorite recipe is The BEST Easy Oven Baked Ribs. You can also cook them in the slow cooker as in Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs or on the grill with Mike Mill's Beef Ribs.

T-Bone Steaks - We've learned that the Green Egg may not be the best grill for grassed beef. Use this recipe for Grilled Grass-fed Ribeye Steaks. It's great for T-bones, too. Or, for more ideas and explanation see How to Cook the Perfect Tender Grass-fed Steak

We hope you enjoy your vegetables this week. I know we are sending you a lot of greens, but your body needs those greens NOW to recover from winter and load up for summer. 

Enjoy!

Dear Members,

This week's share is for weekly and bi-weekly members. Monthly protein shares will arrive in 2 more weeks.

The good news is that cooler weather keeps early Spring vegetables like collards, cabbage, kohlrabi and chard going strong and makes them sweet and tender. Spring is for replenishing your body with green chlorophyl so try to eat your greens and enjoy the very fun kohlrabi (which technically is a root vegetable). Carrots, potatoes, beans, tomatoes and much more are planted and waiting for warmer weather. 

Packaging Changes Coming Soon

The reusable green bags are expensive and inconvenient to return to us, so we are moving to double-handled paper bags in coming weeks. You can keep these paper bags! We do appreciate receiving back the large plastic liners, protein share bubble wrappers and ice packs so we can reuse or recycle them. Simply take them with you when you pick up your share and give them to someone at your pick-up location. If you are home delivery, put them on your porch and we'll pick them up. Thank you!

Farm Visits and Farm Stays

Our members are welcome at the farm anytime and there is no charge for a visit. If you would like to schedule a visit and tour, just call Patti at 214-914-0323 or reply to this email with your request. Bring the kids or a friend and come see our gardens, animals and farm.

We also have a beautiful four bedroom, 3 bath farm house that we rent for overnight stays and events. Leave the bustling city life for a few days and come to the country where you can breathe and play outdoor games and connect with nature. Farmville, the High Bridge Trail, Sandy River Outdoor Adventures and Greenfront Furniture Warehouses and the Moton Museum the Crewe Railroad Museum are close by and terrific for a weekend getaway. We stock your fridge with our eggs, bacon and greens for your breakfast and include a free farm tour. Bring the kids, leave the kids, whatever works for you! Members receive a 15% discount on farm stays. Check us out on Airbnb. We'd love to see you!

The guest house at Waverly Farms 2345 Lewiston Plank Rd., Burkeville, VA 23922 is sort of "meh" on the outside but beautiful inside with freshly hand ironed sheets, high speed internet, large farm kitchen, big screen TV, meticulously appointments, and all of the amenities of a great place to stay. Combined with friendly farm tours, our reviews are always five star!

CSA Shares this Week - Weekly and Bi-Weekly Members

It's a beautiful share with many of our favorites! You should be getting pretty good at cooking greens and making smoothies by now. Don't hesitate to freeze extra kale for future smoothies. 

Kale Mix - Freezing temperatures break down the sometimes tough texture of kale, so if you are a smoothie lover, store any extra kale you have by freezing it as in 3 Easy to Freeze Kale Ahead of Time. Then try any of these 10 Tasty Kale Smoothies. I bet our member Christine Ryan, a Certified Health Coach for Weight No More can offer even more recipes on our Facebook site. Just Like Us (below) and enjoy the articles and suggestions from other members, too, including Liz Grinsell who cooks meals that make her 3 boys and husband LOVE VEGGIES! 

Kohlrabi - Roasted Kohlrabi is a treat. It's also terrific just peeled and raw as in Mizuna Salad with Kohlrabi and Pomegranate Seeds. You can substitute golden raisins, sliced cherries, or cranberries for the pomegranate. 

Rainbow Chard - Sautéed Chard with Bacon will be a hit as will Chard with Bacon and Apple. Remember to remove the tougher stems and either chop and cook them first, or discard them. In a sauté, you can cook your chopped onion and chard stems together for a few minutes, then add minced garlic, then greens. I also love chard mixed into a great salad because it is sweet and tender. See Lettuce Mix below. 

Collard Greens - For a sweet change, try Citrus Collards with Raisins Redux. You'll need an orange and golden raisins. Pine nuts are another good addition as in Sautéed Greens with Pine Nuts and Raisins. Protein share members might also pan fry bacon in advance and sprinkle it on top. Another favorite topping: feta cheese. 

Lettuce Mix - Add, fruit, nuts, feta cheese, anything you like to make a great salad. Lettuce Mix is also terrific on sandwiches. I actually love it with eggs at breakfast. If you have left over lettuce at the end of the week, throw them into a sauté of other greens. Try Nutty and Fruity Quinoa Salad with Maple Vinaigrette, which will be even better with more greens! 

Bok Choy - Shake things up with this innovative and delicious Bok Choy Salad. Or, simply sauté it with onions, garlic, soy and honey. My family can't get enough of Bok Choy with Garlic, Honey and Soy.

Protein Shares - Weekly and Bi-weekly Members Only

Pork Chops, Hamburger, and Sausage - Pork Chops are tricky. They need a slow braising to be tender. A trusted recipe is Loveless Cafe Braised Pork Chops.

We are sending pork sausage with hamburger to encourage you to combine them! We did and they made the best hamburgers ever. Top with feta cheese, squeeze a little mustard on the side, and serve with sautéed greens. Or, make your favorite hamburger such as: Beef and Pork Burger with Freakishly Good Homemade Mayo (using our own eggs!). 

Happy Mothers Day to all!  Be sure to Like Us below.  Enjoy!!

Dear Members,

This week's CSA share is for weekly members only. If you are a bi-weekly member please refer to the schedule in your Pick-up Reminder email to know exactly which dates you receive shares. Meanwhile, you may enjoy the recipes and information in this week's newsletter. 

A Good Summer Read

Not eating what I wanted when I wanted it was an adjustment for me, even after reading Barbara Kinglolver's book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle which is about eating seasonally and from the farm. If you have not read her book, you really should. Kingsolver is a biologist, novelist, and beautiful writer who did a great job of comparing the issues of our conventional food system with eating seasonally from the farm. Her book was a major inspiration for our decision to grow organically and a great read for summer. Amazon has it for just $9.50. Click on the book title above to be taken right to Amazon.

Smoothie Season!

We don't talk enough about smoothies, but this is the time of year to perfect them because you have so many greens! Prepping and freezing these greens is a great way to make early morning smoothies into a cinch of a delicious healthy breakfast. They are also a great refreshment and serious alternative to alcohol. Learn to Freeze Leafy Greens and buy frozen fruit. Freezing bananas is a great way to store them, but be sure to remove the peel before you freeze them. Try this amazing vegan recipe The Best Green Smoothie and feel the rush of chlorophyl into your body as you nourish it! if you're hooked after this little bit of effort, try this source for other green smoothies: 10 Green Smoothies that Actually Taste Good.  And, 13 Deliciously Refreshing Green Smoothies, from The Daily Burn. 

CSA Shares May 14, 2017 - Weekly Members Only

What a beautiful share you have this week! Spring greens are in full fashion as we wait for root vegetables to take hold in warmer soil. Embrace these greens as they will give way when temperatures turn hot.

For your health and happiness, we present these lovelies from the earth:

Curly Kale - This kale is tender and beautifully, still I recommend stripping the leaves off of the tougher stems unless you roast it. If your kale (or any green) is a bit dehydrated when it arrives, soak it in tap water for 5-7 minutes to perk it up. Kale is one of the most versatile super foods and chocked full of nutrition, as are all of the greens in your share this week, especially since they were just harvested yesterday! Kale is terrific in smoothies, savory when sautéed, and hardy when roasted or made into chips. Try this most delicious Farro and Kale Salad. Farro is a wonderful grain that is very high in calcium, but you can substitute brown rice, quinoa, or couscous as well. Another favorite of ours is Crispy Roasted Kale

Collards - Collards are so fun! Shrimp with Bacon and Collards or Healthy Shrimp and Grits with Collards would be a treat and so we threw a package of bacon into your Protein share to use with these recipes and to sprinkle over spinach or any of your sautéed greens. I, of course, would add a lot more Collards than these recipes call for, and even Rainbow Chard or Bok Choy, too. If you just want collards, you might try the traditional Southern Style Collard Greens

Garlic Scapes - Scapes are the flower of the garlic plant. We remove these flower stems to encourage the bulb of garlic to thicken up and because they are yummy and very special. These lovely mild garlicky stems are perfect in Fridge-Dive Pesto Pasta (which uses any greens you have) or chopped into Best Soft Scrambled Eggs or fried rice, made into a vinaigrette or just Grilled with Scallions. Anywhere you would normally use scallions, you can use garlic scapes. 

Rainbow Chard - Try a sauté of Lemon-Garlic Rainbow Chard using your garlic scapes. Almond Crusted Trout with White Grits and Rainbow Chard would be lovely meal. 

Bok Choy - Bok Choy stems are a great substitute for celery. Here is the classic recipe for Bok Choy with Garlic, Honey and Soy, again, but we also love to just chop and fold this and other greens into a can of Amy's Organic Soups from your grocery store for a quick lunch or dinner. 

Spring Onion - The white of the onion is used like any other onion, usually chopped and sautéed with garlic as a base for greens, eggs or anything savory. They can also be used like the garlic scapes above. I particularly like the green part of these scallions chopped finely on the sour cream topping of a taco made with our Waverly Farms hamburger, which is in your protein share this week. Try Easier Thank Making Tacos, but get creative and use the greens in your share this week rather than the recommended lettuce. Another favorite, the super easy: Spring Onion Frittata

Spinach - Spinach is amazing next to or folded into eggs. Oh, do I dare introduce you to Custardy Baked Orzo with Spinach? We also love sautéed spinach topped with feta or bacon as in Sautéed Spinach with Bacon

Protein Shares

Hamburger and Roasts with a bit of Bacon are included in your share this week. This time of year, hamburger should be made into hamburgers, and so we give you The Classic Burger recipe. Bacon should be cooked on top of the stove slowly until brown, cooked and crumbled as a topping for any of your greens. Please remember to thaw roasts for 5 days, marinade them in your favorite (ours is Mr. Stubbs Beef Marinade) and cook them according to instruction. They are both great on the grill when properly marinated. Some have Sirloin Tip Roast and others have London Broil

Enjoy!

Hello, Waverly Farms CSA Members!

Welcome! Your first CSA shares arrive today. It appears that shares may arrive earlier than previously planned, so if you'd like to pick up earlier, please call your designated pick-up location to see if your share has arrived. Once we know the route we will adjust the pick-up times on your weekly reminder email.

This email includes a picture, which is also stapled onto your bags, and helpful information, recipes and tips about the items in your shares. But, first, there are a few things you need to know at the beginning of the season:

1.  We hate to waste money or clog the environment so we reuse bags, bubble wrap, ice packs, everything - we'll take it all. Returning the previous week's reusables, if they are not spoiled, when you pick up your shares is helpful. 

2. If you elected home delivery, please put coolers (preferably with ice packs) on your front porch or designated drop off location so that your eggs, meat and veggies will stay fresh while you are away. If you have special instructions, please reply to this email and we will put a note in your account. 

3. In an effort to reduce labor and costs, we've elected not label each item.  Instead, we provide a picture in this email and stapled to your bags of the items in your share each week and we label them on the picture. We hope this works for you. You might take this picture off your bag and put it some place handy so you can reference it during the week. An Animal Welfare Approved magnet is included in case you want to post it to something metal in your kitchen.

4. Many vegetables dehydrate during transportation. We turn back flips to keep this from happening, but some are just more delicate than others. Pea shoots, for instance, will arrive looking kind of limp. Soak any of your vegetables in a bit of tap water and they will spring right back to lovely.

5. We absolutely appreciate your patronage and are happy to help in any way that we can.  Please don't hesitate to email me at patti_rosenberg@hotmail.com or txt or call 214-914-0323. Just let me know who you are if you txt. 

Your Waverly Farms CSA Shares This Week

Spring Onion - This delicate onion is a great base in your sautéed vegetables. Chop the white part and sauté it in a bit of olive oil before you add the greens. Chop the green part of the onion as a flavorful garnish on taco's, eggs, soups, etc. Roasted spring onion is also delicious. Simply coat the whole thing in olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, lay flat on a cookie sheet or tin, and cook in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes. For a real treat, try Polenta Tart or Spring Onion and Lemon Focaccia.

Bok Choy - Bok choy is delicious for its watery, flavorful stem and green leaves. Traditionally, it is cooked on top of the stove with garlic, honey and soy. Here is the classic recipe for Bok Choy. You can substitute olive or sesame oil for peanut oil if you don't have it. We also love to chop it, stems and all, into a sauté medley with other greens, such as Rainbow Chard or Spinach. Try lemon and garlic rather than soy. Bok Choy, which is a Chinese cabbage, also is delicious with seafood. My favorite: Stir-fried Shrimp and Bok Choy

Rainbow Chard - Wow! This is the most beautiful chard we have ever grown (or seen!). Chard is actually related to beets so it's super healthy but tastes nothing like beets. When sautéing chard, remove the colorful stems from the leaves. Chop the stems and cook them first since they take a little longer (about five minutes in heated olive oil or butter). Add the leaves at the last minute and cook just until tender (about 1 minute). Chard is excellent when combined with Spinach or Bok Choy, so do not hesitate to stir them altogether in the pan. A favorite recipe is Swiss Chard with Bacon. And if you are interested in knowing more about chard, see All About Rainbow Chard. 

Pea Shoots - While a little stringy, pea shoots are full of flavor! We snack on them raw, add them to salads, chop them on eggs, but they also make a great pasta dish as in Pasta with Pea Shoots. I'd be tempted to add other greens to that dish, too. I tried to select one recipe from this article about pea shoots and could not, so ignore the irritating add and scroll through Pea Shoot Recipes to find inspiration. Pea Shoot and Pear Smoothie, anyone?

Lettuce Mix - This delicate salad mix, which has an occasional sprig of beet greens and arugula, would be great in the Pea Shoot and Pear Smoothie recipe (above), or as a salad, or just sautéed with other greens. For salads we do all kinds of things, putting fruit, nuts, feta cheese, avocado, figs. Anything goes. Here is a good Mixed Green Salad with Parmigiano Crisps to get you started. And my favorite, the amazingly easy Cranberry Salad with Feta and Walnuts. Don't hesitate to throw Spinach or Rainbow Chard leaves into your salad. Have you tried salad after dinner? It's a very satisfying alternative to dessert. Again, ignore the ads and learn How to Make a Great Green Salad

Spinach - Spinach Smoothie with Avocado and Apple is a good start. This spinach will have loads more flavor and nutrition than that wimpy, pale baby spinach that we buy at the grocery store (that even when organic is gassed with preservatives).  Ina Garten is my go to girl for great recipes and you might enjoy her Garlic Sautéed Spinach recipe. Mini Spinach Pies with Parmesan are so fun and healthy!

Protein Shares - for subscribers who elected this option. 

All of our meats are Animal Welfare Approved, grass fed, pastured freely and supplemented with Certified Organic whole foods, sea kelp and minerals. Please remember to thaw meats in the refrigerator. Ground meats, such as sausage and hamburger, or those you will cook in a slow cooker can be cooked as soon as they are thawed. Important cuts, like steaks and roasts will be much more tender and flavorful if you thaw them in your refrigerator for 5 days before cooking them. Our meats hold up well to the rigors of your favorite marinade or do just as well with a dry rub and proper cooking. 

Pork Sausage - Make into patties or stir-fry them, but put them with eggs or in your favorite recipe. Cook pork well and remember to let the grease cool and harden, wipe from pan with a paper towel and throw in the garbage can rather than down your sink, since animal fats can clog sinks. Here are some ideas that go beyond breakfast: Italian Sausage Burgers wit Garlicky Spinach using our sausage made as a hamburger patty. Or Sausage and Potato Quesadillas, or Farfalle with Spicy Sausage and Butternut Squash

Beef Steaks - Please thaw these properly.  They are beautiful and delicious. You might appreciate this article How to Cook Perfectly Tender Grass-fed Steak.  Stuart and I sprinkle one side with dots of balsamic vinegar, add a dry rub to both sides (salt, pepper or steak seasoning rub), let it sit covered on the counter for two hours, then grill on high heat removing when it is rare to medium-rare, as in Grilled Grass-fed Rib-eye Steaks with Balsamic-Caper Vinaigrette

We hope you enjoy this first share. Please give us your feedback on quantity - too much? too little? And, let us know if you have any suggestions for how we might improve. 

Enjoy!

Hi, everyone!  

As we move toward the 2017 CSA season, which begins April 27 and goes through November 30th, we'd like to invite you to join us for 32 weeks of the freshest  produce, eggs and meat available. 

Everything we raise is grown sustainably using biological and organic practices. We are Animal Welfare Approved, a stiff certification for the humane treatment of animals, and feed our animals and plants Certified Organic whole foods, minerals and supplements as they range freely on 100 acres of beautiful pasture for their entire lives. 

To enroll, go to www.waverlyfarmsvirginia.com get to know us, then "Join our CSA". You'll receive your first share of our harvest on April 27th and then weekly or bi-weekly thereafter through November 30th.  Optional egg and protein shares are also available. More information is on our website (above).

If you were ever a Waverly Farms CSA member, be sure to click on the link that says "Returning Members Click Here" to avoid duplicating an account with us. Once you have a CSA account with our farm, and pay a 10% downpayment, you may pay along the way throughout the season.  

This week, we are also delivering farm fresh eggs, produce and meats to current and former CSA members. If you would like anything, let us know and we'll deliver it to your Pick-up Location on record, or deliver to your home for an extra $8 (provided you are within our service area). If you'd like any of our products, please reply to this email with your order and delivery location. An invoice will accompany your delivery.

  • Eggs  $6/dozen
  • Collard Greens - $4/bundle
  • Kale - $5/bag
  • Fresh Turnips - $4/lb
  • Best of the Farm - $25 ea. (a sample of everything we're harvesting from the garden, including greens not included on this list)
  • Hamburger - $8/lb

Supporting a local farm that grows food well requires a supportive community. We sincerely hope you will become a member of our farm this year. As a member, you are invited to visit our farm at anytime and can even book a stay in our 4 bedroom farm cottage, which is available through Airbnb. Bring your family or friends for a fun or quiet get away where you can interact with over 300 animals, 3 acres of garden and the hardworking farmers who grow food for you.

We hope you will join us!

Thank you!  Patti
