Rookery to the Rescue
"If you can't fish 'em, eat 'em!"
Well, not only is the ice holding fast to most area lakes, but yet another spring snowstorm has Cable looking more like how we WANTED it to look like back in January than on the eve of the annual fishing opener. Wonder where they're gonna take the governor fishing tomorrow?
Where they SHOULD take him is to the Rookery. Not only would he be sure to find walleye here, but fresh Alaskan halibut as well. We brought it in special this weekend, because we think you deserve to have fresh fish on the first weekend of May. Snow and ice notwithstanding!
Fresh Alaskan halibut, panko crusted with coconut kaffir lime sauce. This weekend. Only at the Rookery!
Jump Start Your Summer
So it's been a long winter. We can whine. Or we can pull out the seed catalogues and dream of warmer days ahead. They're sure to get here...eventually.
But what if you'd rather do a whole lot more this summer than pull weeds? Perhaps hike more, bike more, boat more, fish more? Or even better yet. Attend more of the Rookery's 16 planned Sunday afternoon live outdoor music performances!
There IS a way you can play more, weed less, and still enjoy fresh organic produce all summer long. Once again the Rookery will partner with DragSmith Farms to offer our guests a weekly box packed full of tasty and nutritious vegetables. It's the same farm where we pick up much of the produce served in the restaurant. Ask anyone who participated in this special farm share program last year and you're sure to hear glowing reviews.
Each time you open your box of freshly picked produce the wonders of sight and smell will greet your senses. The royal colors of an heirloom tomato or the robust earthy smell of carrots greet you like a warm summer breeze. Family owned for 115 years, DragSmith's entire 104 acres is certified organic. They choose varieties of vegetables that taste good and pair them with growing methods that encourage flavor. Nothing inspires creativity in the kitchen like receiving a box overflowing with freshly picked vegetables. Each week you'll typically receive 6-8 different types, along with menu ideas that are especially helpful for preparing and serving the occasional unique vegetable you may never have tried before.
And not only that. The program also happens to be a terrific bargain. A half bushel of fresh garden produce each week for 22 weeks (June 10-Nov 4) for only $390, delivered to the Rookery for pickup anytime after 4 PM on Thursdays. That's less than $18 per week. Do you have any idea what it would cost to purchase that much organic produce at your local food cooperative or grocery store?
But what if you're mostly here in Cable only during our peak summer season? Once again this year DragSmith has agreed to offer our loyal Rookery guests a special "vacation package" farm share: 9 weeks (July 1-Aug 26) for just $225.
To sign up for either program simply stop by the Rookery or mail your check to DragSmith Farms, 1346 16 1/2 Avenue, Barron, WI 54812. Be sure to include your name, mailing address, phone, and email. You'll also want to be sure to specify the Rookery as your pickup site. We guarantee you're gonna love it!
