Fall Harvest: Apple Guide


Fall season is upon us, and with it comes some of our favorite treats. No, we’re not talking about pumpkin spice… We’re talking about apples! Apple pies, apple muffins, apple cider. We love apples baked into our desserts, tossed into salads, blended into butternut squash soup, and of course, simply on their own as the perfect sweet snack. You may have noticed the many apple options available to you when customizing your farm box. Today we will take a look at the flavor profiles of some of our favorite apple varieties, and for what uses they are best suited!

Super sweet and oh-so-delicious, Keitt (pronounced keet) mangoes are grown here in sunny California! Did you know that Keitt mangoes are left on the tree longer than imported mangoes? This results in them being a sweeter tasting fruit with a nice, smooth texture.

A Season of Change

A Season of Change

Farm News

There is no denying that nothing is the same. Each week, we wonder how much will change next week, and in the back of my mind, a breeze gently begs the question, “Will it ever return to normal?” This is what I am escaping from as I leave the desk, my inventory, my crop plans, my fulfillment challenges behind to exercise my heart. It is hard to start the run, but it doesn’t take long for me to remember that I am healthy and happy to be using my heart—this small act gives it the love it needs to keep me strong.

What a Week!

We are so fortunate to be part of such a robust local food system. As the news of society’s reaction to COVID-19 spread, we all wondered what, if anything, was going to change. It was my wife, Moyra, who delivered the news. While we sat around the kitchen table after dinner, she logged on to customize our weekly Farm Fresh To You box (yes, we get one too), “Thad, everything is sold out, even the radicchio.” We looked at each other. “Radicchio is sold out?” Radicchio is great, but it never ever, ever, sells out and I knew we had a field full of that stuff. It has been an around-the-clock process from that moment to catch up to the unprecedented demand.

Spice It Up: Turmeric

Spice It Up: Turmeric


Turmeric is a perennial herbaceous plant that is a member of the ginger family. It’s native to Southeast Asia and India, but it can grow anywhere that has a warm and humid climate. Turmeric plants grow long leaves that emerge from rhizomes, which is more or less a root, that is hidden beneath the soil. When the rhizome is harvested, it is boiled, dried under sunlight for about a week, then polished. Dried rhizomes are about two to three inches in length, but are most commonly sold ground up into a powder that is found in the spice aisle. The name turmeric comes from the Latin word terra merita, which refers to the golden yellow color of ground turmeric.
