New products:

3-Corner Field Farm: is now offering a bleu cheese. This 100% raw sheep’s milk bleu has a crumbly, moist interior and a moderate bleu flavor.

Cowbella: Kefir is back! We had a special, and ran out of this delicious, pro-biotic drink made from cow’s milk. Available in maple, strawberry, vanilla and plain, try them all.
Lewis Waite Farm: received pork last week. It is going fast, but there is still some bacon available!

Mariaville Mushroom Men: try some Mushroom tea on these chilly fall nights. Enjoy the warmth of tea and the healthy benefits of mushrooms. Each tin contains a two supply of tea, to be taken as a health supplement. Check out what mushrooms can do for you here.

Manx Station Farm: has updated their listing with more inventory. Try the sandwich steaks; quick cooking and great for Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches or Stir-Fried with your favorite fall time veggies.

Teeny Tiny Spice Company: add a little spice to your meals. Teeny Tiny has a spice for everyone. These spices are full of certified organic ingredients and range in spiciness. ***I love their Perfection Spice Blend–it’s so good as a rub for slow-cooked meats. Their Shepherd’s Blend tastes lovely in this recipe for salmon cakes.

Specials – We are using the ‘specials’ category in the ‘Shop by Product’ part of our website to put different items on specials. Check there!

4 Quick Turnip Recipes

Sautéed Turnips and Greens
Cook peeled and cut-up turnips and sliced garlic in olive oil in a large skillet until tender. Add the turnip greens and cook until just wilted. Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice.

Roasted Turnips With Ginger
Peel and cut turnips into wedges. Toss with sliced fresh ginger, canola oil, salt, and pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with honey and roast at 400° F until tender.

Mashed Turnips With Crispy Bacon
Simmer peeled and cut-up turnips in boiling salted water until tender. Drain and mash with butter, salt, and pepper. Fold in crumbled cooked bacon and chopped chives; top with shaved Parmesan.

Creamy Leek and Turnip Soup
Cook thinly sliced leeks in butter in a large saucepan until soft. Add peeled and cut-up turnips and enough chicken broth to cover. Simmer until very tender. Puree until smooth, adding water or broth as necessary to adjust the consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
