Farm Connect/Locavore Delivery - 11.6.2008

This week's Farm Connect Locavore delivery list from Summer @ Dee Creek:

In an effort to be more efficient, and less wasteful, we're going to stop writing individual receipts, and instead keep a book. If you specifically want a receipt, please let us know when you place your order, if possible.

For those of you who have registered for the Autumn Food Preservation classes, we'll see you this weekend!

Anyone and everyone can order from our deliveries, not just "subscribers"! To any newcomers on the e-list, welcome! Also rest assured that all farms contributing to our deliveries all meet several standards: chemical-free, sustainable, natural, family farming... If you have questions about any of them, don't hesitate to ask, or check them out! ~S

To order, click here and specify what you would like.
All checks go to "Dee Creek Farm", or bring cash.


We fill pre-orders first, then it’s first come, first served!
We do mostly pre-orders at deliveries, rather than Farmers Market style.
Please help us in this by pre-ordering what you can.

Pastured Chicken, SOLD OUT
For those who have been asking, our chickens are sold out by pre-orders - in fact, this is the last week of pick up for fresh chickens for those who have ordered, so it'll be a bookin' delivery with fresh poultry. We thank those who have planned ahead, and expect to begin taking orders for 2009 soon!

Aged Feta, $5.50/container retail, $5.00/container CSA - block or crumble
Creamy block or crumbles of unpasteurized aged feta from DCF to top your salad, pasta, or olive ciabatta. Try it in scrambled eggs, lasagna, in a bowl of beans, or top a pizza! We're this close to having soft cheeses, and expect to have some yummy holiday specials!

$4/dozen retail, $3.75/dozen CSA - NO EXTRA
Ho' boy - the girls have gone on strike. Not quite, but close. We will fill DCF egg CSA's, as possible. Please recycle your DCF egg cartons with us! While eggs may slow down for winter, our next batch will begin late-December, so the lull should be short!

Raw Honey,
Gallon/$32, Half-gallon/$18, Quart/$12, Pint/$7
Raw honey in glass (sometimes plastic) jars form Honey House Farm in Brush Prairie - super local! Great for allergies!

Jalapeno's, $3/lb
Hubbard Winter Squash, $.33/lb (huge) - will have cut up pieces available next week
Kabocha (or Buttercup) Winter Squash, $.75/lb
The above squash will come from Red Basket Farm in Battle Ground. "Buttercup squash can be baked, mashed, pureed, steamed, simmered, or stuffed and can replace sweet potatoes in most recipes (sweet potatoes, btw, don't grow as well in our climate). It's popular for it's strong yet sweet flavor and moist, fluffy texture, which is like chestnuts." You can find a slew of recipes here. Holds well for many weeks!

Wild & Dried Eats,
Dried Snack and Meal Helpers -
(Already chopped, diced, sliced, portioned, and packaged just right for 1-2 meals)
Org. Green Garlic (a spring culinary treat - more delicate mild flavor than raw garlic...) $2.00
Org. Heirloom Tomatoes (snacks, great for pasta or rice dishes, saute` w/vegs...) $2.00
The above comes from Nature's Choice, a Vancouver business, operated by a couple who collects & sells wild eats, and prepares naturally preserved (dried) foods. The mushrooms come in white paper bags, weighing 1/4# each.

Not Available At Deliveries, but great local folks joining efforts:

Organic Chicken Feed,
There is a farmer who would like to start a co-op for monthly buying of certified organic layer feed from Concentrates at a 15% discount (which would make it $20.74 per bag at todays price). If you're interested, let me know. There needs to be enough folks to make it worthwhile. We're about a half of the way!

Contact Summer to place your order.

Cell Phone: 360-903-6956 (no service at the Farm)
