Austin 2017 Spring Farm Share/CSA – Week 7

This week the bean harvest is hitting full stride as the blackberry harvest begins to wane. We’re also posting a soup recipe one of our members prepared last week.  We welcome your recipe ideas.  If you have a favorite or try a new one that uses several of the varieties in a weekly share, please send it to us so we can share with all farm share members.

This week we begin delivering pasture-raised whole chicken with our weekly shares. These are raised with great care by our friends at Humble Rooster Farm on non-GMO, soy-free feed.  When you sign up for our weekly produce shares, just add the chicken along with your choice of eggs and/or grass fed beef and have it all conveniently delivered right to your front door.

Here’s what’s expected in our Spring week 7 shares:
