Path Valley Farms - May 30th Lineup

We know, we know. We've been saying it for a few weeks now. The warm weather earlier this spring and then sudden cold + frosts in May has meant some weird growing patterns! To be specific, some farms have had damage or lost a portion of their late spring crops like strawberries. Rhubarb is growing slowly! Ramps had a longer season.

But, spring is finally here! It's the first asparagus from Path Valley Farms in Pennsylvania!

Here's the lineup for Saturday 5/30 delivery!

Small Veggie Bag

  • 1 bunch of foraged ramp bulbs: what about making ramp pizza or ramp eggs? garlicky, springtime super premium foraged specialty! no matter what's happening in the world, every spring, ramps spring from the earth! This is the last week of ramps! The recent cold has given us a much longer season of ramps this year. Silver linings :)

Do you want to add extra ramps?! Select the Small Bag + Extra Ramps option!

  • 1/2 lb mix greens: ever changing mix of mizuna, tatsoi, red/green kale, red/green mustard, scarlet frills, beet greens, and some sylvetta. heavy on the pea shoots this week!

  • 1 bunch asparagus: store in a jar of water in your fridge for freshest asparagus when you're ready to cook! approximately 1/2 lb.

  • !not pictured! a ripe red tomato (or 2 if they're smaller): why just one tomato?! in the greenhouse, the tomato plants are slowly starting to produce. as the days get longer, the plants will grow quicker and there will be more tomatoes!

  • 2 cucumbers: also greenhouse grown! we love making smashed cucumber salad!

Path Valley Farms is a farming cooperative in Pennsylvania! Path Valley Farms is a true collective, owned by the growers and operating with the intention of keeping families working together at home! We all work with the goal of growing tasty food on healthy land that will be sustained through the generations. 
Their gem-like vegetables are beloved by many area chefs (and us!). Read more about Path Valley Farms Coop here.
The farm may make substitutions when they run out of one type of veggie! We try to avoid this, but it does happen from time to time.
