The Farm at Sunnyside for Thursday May 14!

Certified organic produce from The Farm at Sunnyside, which is just 75 miles from Washington DC. For Thursday 5/14 delivery, we are delighted to deliver to you:

Small, Organic Veggie Bag

1 bunch radishes (french or red) or Asian turnips : Fresh on salads is great but have you tried to lightly sauté these in some butter?
1 bunch herbs (cilantro or dill) : top your tacos or stir fry with some cilantro and use dill to make a delicious salad topping or dressing
1 bunch cooking greens (chard, kale or collards): sauté these up with some beans for a delicious, hearty and healthy meal.
1 bag salad greens (1/3 to 1/2 lb) : arugula, lettuce mix, baby kale or a mix of all three. While salad is an obvious choice of what to do with these greens, they are also a great addition to sandwiches.
1 bag pea shoots : sweet and tender. These are a great addition to sandwiches and salads

Large, Organic Veggie Bag

1 head lettuce : This is some of the first of the season for us! Some varieties are frilly and delicate while others are crisp and hearty. They are all delicious
1 bag spinach -or- salad mix : Spring is salad time.  (1/3 to 1/2 lb)
1 bunch cooking greens (chard, kale or collards) : these greens are great as a side dish on their own or are a perfect addition to a soup or stew
1 bunch Asian greens : ginger and miso go great with these.
1 head bitter greens (escarole, frisee or dandelion greens) : These are great for detoxing your liver and can taste great too. Lightly cooking them takes away some of the bitterness. Use some type of acid like lemon juice or vinegar and a fat like olive oil or cheese to accompany them.
1 bag fava beans -or- snap peas : both of these are a spring treat. Fava beans are a bit of work to prepare but the reward is worth it.
1 bunch oregano or za'atar : great additions to bitter greens and fava bean dishes. za'atar =  Thymbra spicata, with a slight minty tendency, in the marjoram/oregano family. Za'atar is both a blend of herbs and a herb itself!
1 kohlrabi : This is sweet and crunchy. While it may look a bit weird, it tastes a lot like a broccoli stem is great cooked up in a stir fry. we also love to eat it raw, sliced up with some hummus!

The Farm at Sunnyside is managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013 when starting Number 1 Sons. Stacey and Casey are phenomenal farmers and managers tending to the health of their land, soil, staff and our community with their nutritious + delicious vegetables. You may have eaten their vegetables at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, Falls Church Farmers Market, The Dabney or A Rake's Progress :)

The Farm at Sunnyside borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on their website. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and managing a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things!

The farm may substitute veggies if they run out. This happens rarely, but does happen from time time. Produce is measured by weight, so quantity may vary slightly from pictures. Sorry, we can't offer substitutions right now.
