June 8th - no pickup
I still have not heard confirmation on the organic strawberries and when they will be ready, so as of right now there will not be any pickup on June 8th. As soon as I know what price the farmers need for their berries I will add them to the order form because they *have* to be ready by June 15th!

Rain, rain...
Okay, so I'm not sure I'd classify Friday as lovely, but boy, did we need that rain! We hope that it makes all the seedlings happy and makes asparagus plentiful again. Thanks for being so cheerful on a rainy pickup day and be thankful that we have a dry spot inside to bring all that great food to.

Cheese! Cheese! Cheese!
Gordon's Goat Dairy is on this order form but only until Tuesday evening (or maybe Wednesday morning). They have very yummy goat cheese including:
C-Line: Moist, creamy, and buttery. Gord's original recipe made by adding a special probiotic to our Havarti recipe, perfect for the health-concious consumer. It is named after the road on which the farm is located.
Gouda Creamy, mild flavour.
Havarti: Firmer texture, more robust flavour.
Cheddar: Hard texture, mild flavour.
Goatserella: Mozzarella-like flavour - strays stringy, doesn't melt.
Our other favourite cheeses include Millbank, Monforte (we take CSA vouchers) and Mornington. Local Dairy is usually one of our favourites, but you won't find their cheese on the order form this week because they are out of town for part of next week. I'm sure their cheese will be even better when they come back well rested!

A quick list of what to look for on the order form this week:

  • Garlic Scapes! These amazing tasty harbingers of spring are the immature flower stalks of the garlic we'll eat soon enough and are really tasty in stir fries or braised with spinach and eggs (my favourite)
  • Dessert! Since pickup is on Friday again grab yourself a treat! Pie to bring to a friend's house, a sweet loaf from Lena Horst, squares from The Nutty Bakers, bars or cookies form Grainharvest or chocolate croissants from Golden Hearth for breakfast... MMmmm!
  • Swiss Chard and Garlic Scapes from Nith Valley - just added!
  • Fish and Tofu from Ontario Natural are on the order form (look under 'other')! They were a hit in the spontaneous cooler and at dinner, so we're hooked! Please note that the fish is wild caught from Manitoulin Island. This is more than 100 miles away for those who are eating a pure 100 mile diet, but for the rest of us, it's close enough!
  • So many other great items. Check them out online!
Upcoming Events:
