Welcome to Week 12 of the Winter Share and the official start of spring! 

We have a great bag in store for you all this week-- perfect for this transitional spring weather we're having. For our omnivores, we'll have some stew beef as well as turkey sausage (a new product from Chef Adam Lambert, made with dried mushrooms and red wine), and for our vegetarians we'll have a freshly baked loaf of wheat bread and a dozen eggs. Both shares will have some frozen vegetables, some greens (either lettuce or spinach depending on this week's harvest), potatoes and apples and a choice of one our delicious canned sauces for making dinner in a jiffy. 

Speaking of sauces, if you've ever had a question about how to make the perfect wine-based pan sauce or homemade mayo, we have a delicious class coming up next week! Chef Parker Bosley is teaching his "Sauces & Stocks" class, and it is one of the tastiest classes of the year. More info down below, so keep reading! 

This is our bean snipper! Fresh green beans go in one end, and out they come the other, ends in snipped in seconds to be ready for... 

...packing into quart-containers and flash frozen for your shares! Taking advantage of summer produce at its height of flavor to keep us in greens throughout the winter.

Featured Products
Featured Product: Strawberry Daiquiri Mix 
In case you need a little liquid courage for the annual Easter egg hunt, or maybe just a reason to celebrate spring's arrival, we have a delicious product from Clark Pope on our shelves: Strawberry Daiquiri Mix.

It comes in a 750 ml bottle-sized bottle, and is absolutely delicious mixed with some soda water, or even better blended up with some ice, lime juice and a splash of spicy rum. An entire pint of our strawberries is blended into each individual bottle, and it has a mouthwateringly tangy and sweet taste.

Just $12 a bottle-- also makes a beautiful host/hostess gift!  

Classes & Events
Sauces & Stocks 

Get out your pens and your napkins, everybody: Chef Parker Bosley is enrolling us all in a one-day cooking school to teach the fundamentals of classic sauces and homemade stocks. Now you'll be able to perfect that mushroom glaze, the hollandaise for brunch, or the just-right pastry cream for dessert.
