THANK YOU sincerely to those who worked with us for the first 17-week CSA trial and WELCOME to all of you joining us for the 13-week winter season!
Think our CSA goodies are just for adults? Think again. One of our Winchester customers sent us these pictures of Natalie and her brother David showing just how much they enjoy the variety of foods we lovingly prepare on the farm and deliver each week to CSA share members. Don't miss out...the Winter CSA still has room for a few sign-ups! #powderkegfarms #CSA #allthegoodness
Who doesn't love micro greens? They are delicate, tender and mild—but don't be fooled as these little vegetable sprouts pack a nutritional punch! Whether you're throwing them in a salad, tweezing them onto your fine dining entree or just eating them for a snack, we've got you covered. #powderkegfarms #microgreens #buylocal
I'm not sure any words are needed. Look at all these amazing crops thanks to our high tunnel! I'm in awe...and can't wait to share it with you! Winter CSA starting January 1 if you missed the post. Jump in! #powderkegfarms #eatyourveggies #getsome
Our CSA fall trial was a hit, so we're going to keep it rolling! Sign up now for the Winter season, which begins on January 1. This is not your ordinary CSA offering—which, let's face it, can be a combination of daunting, disappointing or spot on. Ours comes not only with fresh veggies and eggs that we're growing on the farm, but also baked goods, sauces, soups, relishes—whatever the chef is inspired to do. Come on over and check out all the information—and the rave reviews!—at our CSA page on the website. But don't tarry...spaces are filling up fast!
This recipe, or a variation of it, has been around in our family a lot longer than 2010, but that was the year I put it on paper for distribution at my annual cookie party. Good molasses and fresh spices are important so don’t skimp on those! These gingerbread cookies hold up well when dunked in morning coffee and can be shipped with confidence. Shaped liked people, a batch on a cookie sheet is a community. Big people, little people, fancy decorated people, unpainted people. All there. All together. Looking good. And tasting good. I make hundreds of gingerbread cookies every December, which my friends and family help decorate, so they can be given to folks who are shut-in, need a lift, or just a bite of wholesome goodness prepared with love. Start your own tradition this holiday season by making some of these! #powderkegfarms #wvgrown #gingerbreadman #Christmascookies #yum
...we'd grow some of these beauties! We love the radish so much, it's in our logo! #radish #hightunnel #locallygrown #wvgrown #csa #yearroundcsa #powderkegfarms
Meet Whitney VanHees, PFK's 30-day intern from Dallardsville, Texas. Whitney (pictured above in the blue flannel shirt) got to meet her idol Joel Salatin and his family when she visited Polyface Farm in Virginia. Salatin is known for his solid and transparent farming principles. He's helped countless farmers farm better and healthier food with less impact to the environment. Whitney inherited her family homestead two years ago and through her learning experiences, will bring all that good information back home to continue her own journey.
Our first fall harvest in the high tunnel is arugula. Isn't it fabulous? Come get you some of that! #arugula #hightunnel #locallygrown #wvgrown #csa #yearroundcsa #powderkegfarms
