RAMPS Up in Maine and Your Weekly News Update From Casco Bay Organics

organic-produce-box2Brrrrr Mainers!

Holy Spring Chill! I hope this email finds you warm and hungry:) Just to let you know, since our growing season is now upon us I am receiving updated emails almost daily with new fresh and local organic items so emails will be either on Monday or Tuesday from now on.

 

Emery FarmOk….ready? Here we go! Our Wild Maine Feature Of The Week is RAMPS! Foraged organically from our buddy Mr. Richardson and his pals up in Houlton, ME. I am also psyched about the Hakurei Salad Turnips from One Drop Farm and double super duper pumped about Bok Choy from our new farm crush, Emery Farm! The rockin Spinach will be from the amazing Flying Pond Farm and some tasty Chives from Freedom Farm. Oh! We have RHUBARB! And back by popular demand are those delicious Minneola Oranges. That little pug dog that whispers(snorts) in my ear occasionally also mentioned Graffiti Eggplants will be hiding in our boxes of organic awesomeness also! What a hun! There is more but before you go check…….

 

rampsSince our Wild Maine Foraged Feature season is so short please don’t hesitate if you would like more fiddleheads, ramps, or even next weeks special…cough cough NETTLES ahem ahem. Shhhhhhh it’s a surprise. So let me know if you all are interested. I’m trying to keep the boxes interesting and exciting and different…but darn those fiddleheads were amazing. I grilled them, I sauteed them, I even steamed them and added them to a salad.

Ok, though I looooooove chatting with you all, I will leave you to go play with your orders. Don’t forget to post pictures of what your cooking on our facebook, confess your undying love for us on  yelp, or email me questions or even cute puppy pictures.

Have a great day!

Be Happy,

Jillian

Heart Healthy Organic Produce and Your Weekly Newsletter Update

Happy Monday Mainers!

If you aren’t over the moon about it being Monday…let me tell ya…I’m about to make you REEEEEAALLL HAPPY!

I’ve been doing the happy dance all day since I found out that we are getting ARTICHOKES! Grilled artichokes are one of my favorite things to make (eat) and I really can’t wait. So I decided that I would just send out entire boxes of artichokes to all of you. Who needs variety when you have artichokes? Ok, Ok, I’m kidding:)

Sunset Farm OrganicsThis week we are rockin’ a heart healthy box featuring Spinach from Flying Pond Farm, Arugula from Sunset Farms, and more of those delicious Red Maria Potato’s from Thibodeau Farms. Oh and also, a little pug dog told me that he stole my laptop and ordered some Portobello Mushrooms. Darn Dogs;) I guess since he ordered them we will have to grill up some Portobello Pesto Burgers. Check this recipe out!

Ok, my darlings, there is more! Log into your accounts and check it out! Flip, switch, swap, and sub and enjoy every second of it! Remember, we love to hear what your cooking up and even better…post pics to our facebook! Give us a hug on Yelp! And feel free to send me any questions, suggestions, or even love letters at justpeachy@cascobayorganics.com. I hope you enjoy your menu as much as I enjoyed making it.

 

Be Happy,

Jillian
