Path Valley Farms - Week of 3/9 Line Up

The line up for week of March 9 - March 12 :

MEDIUM VEGGIE BOX (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)

The medium veggie box is for two-to-three veggie lovers who enjoy having vegetables throughout the week. Your box is harvested to order, changes weekly, and is chosen to express the best of what is seasonal and delicious, guided by nature and the farmers of Path Valley Farms. Eat all these veggies within a week or so, and go for the delicate greens first. 

Make it a salad week: peel the beets, cut into chunks, ditto half of the onion, then roast the two in a little oil and salt until crispy on the edges. Bonus points if you also add a thinly sliced and seeded orange (peel and all) to the mix, which will turn jammy and caramelized in a hot oven. If you’re feeling more raw, then peel a beet, shred it, and mix it with julienned radishes and apples; dress in a mustardy vinaigrette and pile it on a bed of mixed greens. Thinly slice shallots and fry in a good amount of oil until crispy; drain but reserve the oil to use in dressings or for drizzling over a warm potato and sweet potato salad, dressed with chivesdill, or hot and spicy oregano. The shallot oil is also very good brushed on rolls before toasting in a skillet and filling with sandwich fixings. 

Contents for March 9-12:

  • 1 red or yellow onion
  • 1 pound watermelon or triple Chinese radishes
  • 2 pounds fingerling sweet potatoes
  • ½ pound shallots
  • 3 apples
  • Handful of chives, dill, or hot and spicy oregano
  • 2 pounds Russet or Eva potatoes
  • ¾ pound mixed greens
  • 2 pounds beets

Note: Occasionally the farm will make harvest substitutions depending on what is at peak

HAPPY FAMILY VEGGIE BOX (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) 

The Happy Family Veggie Box is delightful for a larger family, or four voracious vegetable-centric eaters.  Your box is harvested to order, changes weekly, and is chosen to express the best of what is seasonal and delicious, guided by nature and the farmers of Path Valley Farms. Eat all these veggies within a week or so, and go for the delicate greens first. 

There are new baby carrots peeping up in the greenhouse, but this week you’ll get a batch of big carrots: slice them into rounds and sear in a skillet, then finish with a little maple syrup and sambal for a sweet-funky-spicy glaze. You could also make a carrot pickle, flavored with hot and spicy oregano, to go on sweet potato tacos; add thinly sliced raw beets to the mix to make it extra colorful. Thinly slice kale and massage with a little salt and oil, then add it to a slaw with julienned radishes and apples; top it with chives or dill, and a handful of pea shoots. Do you make focaccia? Top it with caramelized onions and thinly sliced potatoes, then serve with a big salad of mixed greens or arugula. 

  • 1 pound watermelon or triple Chinese radishes
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • 3 apples
  • ¾ to 1 pound kale
  • Handful of chives, dill, or hot and spicy oregano
  • 2 ounces micro pea shoots
  • 2 pounds Eva or Russet potatoes
  • 2 pounds big carrots
  • 2 pounds baby beets
  • 1 pound mixed greens or arugula
