Food for Thought



Holiday gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.
-- Oren Arnold 


Notes from Neil
Kohlrabi Parmesan



   Happy Holiday to All.


 I am offering a special Holiday gift subscription this year so you can share your knowledge of goodness about our veggies with your friends and family. It is a special three week contract of a half share of veggies for $100. So give freely of this special gift so we can spread the news!

As this year winds down I realize that I am at the end of another 20 years of dedicating myself to a profession.  My first 20 was spent serving my and your country and protecting our way of life. My reflection on the past has led me to wonder what to do with myself my final 20 years. I am seriously making a bucket.  Any suggestions?

I just spent this past weekend planting over 10,000 transplants and now I only need to care for them until maturity.  Sooo I will have plenty for all.  Will need volunteers to help in weeding. Please pass the word we need more families to support our pursuit of happiness by joining our CSA.  

Thank you for your continued support of our CSA program here at TaylOrganic Farm! 

Your Farmer,

Neil Taylor



Homegrown Recipes
I tried to focus on recipes this month that you could use for the holidays and entertaining
Marcia Taylor's Mulled Cider




















2 32 oz bottles of TaylOrganic Muscaberry Blue juice, or other naturally sweet juice or cider
(alternatively, use equivalent amount of Cabernet Sauvignon plus cup brown sugar).
One orange
One lemon
About 20 whole cloves
4 cinnamon sticks
Spices (adjust to taste):
tsp of allspice
tsp of nutmeg


Cut the orange and lemon into quarters or smaller slices.  Snap cinnamon sticks in half.

With a sharp, pointy knife or other pointy instrument, cut tiny holes in the outside of the fruit, and insert one clove in each hole.  About 20 pieces of clove per entire fruit should be enough.  It may be easier to strip a little bit of the rind from the fruit before attempting to push the cloves into them.


Place all ingredients in a crockpot and stir well, until spices are well blended.  Heat at High for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally, before serving.  If you do not have a crockpot, it is fine to make this in a pot on the stove, but do not let the mixture boil.


You may wish to strain the fruit, cloves, and cinnamon sticks from the pot before serving.


Serve warm, if possible with a cinnamon stick in the mug.

Blue Cheese

Spread or Bruschetta




Here's the recipe: get a nice wedge of blue cheese, pour some TaylOrganic Sweet Georgia Gold honey over it, sprinkle it with chopped pecans or chopped walnuts and devour it. Use crackers or baguettes. It really doesn't matter one bit because they are just vehicles to get more of this wonderful concoction into your mouth. If you have never put honey with blue cheese, I hope you are as pleasantly surprised as I was. It is wonderful.  You can substitute the honey with fig preserves also.  Another twist is to bake it with the honey on slices of baguettes to have a wonderful bruschetta.  Enjoy! 

We still have a few jars of our Alon's Bakery Fig Banana Preserves available you could use to make this an extra special dish!




Pears with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto




2 pears (such as Bosc or Bartlett), each cored and sliced into 8 wedges
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
3 ounces blue cheese cut into small pieces
6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto cut in half lengthwise
1 cup Arugula


Dried Cranberries if desired


 Roll up an Arugula leaf, a piece of pear, and a piece of cheese in the prosciutto.



 My Variation on this recipe is to add a dried cranberry into the rolling process.







 Appetizer Meatballs



1 Package for frozen premade meatballs or use your favorite homemade recipe

1 Jar of TaylOrganic Pepper Jelly any variety

1 Bottle of Chili Sauce


 Couple splashes of TaylOrganic Habanero or TaylOrganic Select Hot Sauce if desired heat is needed






Add all above ingredients to a crock pot mix and let simmer for a couple of hours.  The longer they simmer the more favorable they become.





Value Added Product Ideas for the Holidays





 Don't forget about our many Value Added products that can be used for entertaining or even better given as gifts for the hostess at your next holiday party. 


 Pepper Jellies and Country Tomato jam can be poured over cream cheese and garnished and served with crackers for a great spread. 


Any of the blueberry ciders and be mixed with Vodka and add fresh basil for an unusual holiday beverage.  


 TaylOrganic Bloody Mary Mix is easy and great with the Hot Pickled Okra or Dilly Beans ad a garnish. 


Open and enjoy any of our salsas, relishes, pickled items for a fast savory experience at any party. 


Make miniature pancakes or hoe cakes and serve with our blueberry salsa or syrup or serve with a nice shortbread cookie.


Pour our strawberry preserves over any store bought cheese ball to jazz it up or of course your could make your own. 


Mix some fresh Cilantro and Spring onions sliced with a jar of our Country Red or Heirloom Tomatoes to make an extra fresh tasting Salsa.

Sweet Georgia Gold



Ursula Bauer, one of our CSA members comes out to the farm and tends to our bees every other weekend.  She is responsible for the extracting of the honey.  TaylOrganic Farm relies on it's bees for pollination of it's crops.  We harvested our honey for the first time this Spring.  We had a loss of only 10%  in bees with the national average being above 50%.  So take advantage of all our hard work and get some local honey. 


 Why buy local honey?Click here to find out. 


 We have our honey available for $4.oo/ bottle.  



TaylOrganic Farm's Pork and Beef Selections


Some of our selections below have sold out but have no fear because we just got FIVE new pigs for the fall they will be fed a diet of mostly TaylOrganic Produce.  So soon they will turn to hogs and we will have more selections available.


We have compared prices and are offering ours  at a 10% below the average price of our competitors.  The packages are listed below and are of an average weight that we carry so a package of chops may be any where from 1.5 to over 2lbs.  Please contact us with your orders and we will try and get as close as possible with the requested weight. 


Our beef  is Grass Fed Beef. Because the meat is natural, with no steroids, hormones, or antibiotics, the meat is lean and healthy. and priced competively.
