Creamy Butternut Squash Soup with Apple & Fennel

We’ve reached the end of the season my friends! And by that I don’t mean we’ve done our last CSA delivery. No no, that happened a couple weeks ago. For us, the end of the growing season means that the garlic has been planted, the tomato trellis taken down, the hoophouse construction finished, and the…

Beet & Kale Salad with Maple Balsamic Vinaigrette

Hello dear ones and happy beautiful, cloudy, mystical October to you!  I have been absolutely adoring this fall and the way it keeps oscillating between beautiful sunny seventies and moody gray days that are a bit cooler. I’ve worn heavy sweaters and shorts, cozied up next to bonfires and sweated while hiking, sipped warm soup…

End of Summer Barley Bowl with Sweet Corn, Eggplant & Tomatoes

Hello dear ones and happy September. I’ve never been more grateful to reach this beautiful month of sunny skies, cooler weather, crisp mornings, and waning work on the farm. It’s been a season my friends: a beautiful, stressful, demanding, prolific, lifechanging season. A lot has happened since we last talked way back in May. Like…

Summery Salad with Slow Cooker Barbacoa Pork & Spicy Slaw

Happy (how-the-heck-is-it-already) May Day to you all! How have you been? Enjoying the spring weather? Spending every warm, sunny moment outside (or at least perched in front of a window)? Yeah, me too. Our cats are demanding open windows every morning (even if it’s still 45 degrees when I wake up) and there’s just been…

Beet & White Bean Burgers

Friends! We have some incredibly exciting news to share with you all: my Carrot and I are due to have a little Leek or a little Carrot sometime this July!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are over the moon excited to meet our sweet farm baby in a few months/ very nervous to see how hard it is to…

Big Sky, Montana + Yellowstone Travel Guide

Last month my Carrot and I (and our two pups!) headed out on a sweet little road trip to Big Sky, Montana. It was the most blissfully simple winter vacation of early bedtimes, blue skies, long (cold) hikes, good food, cribbage, wildlife spotting, and a sweet little cabin (with a fireplace!). It felt like we…

Kale & Carrot Salad with Pecans & Feta

The season has begun! Well, sort of.  For the past few weeks, we’ve had boxes and envelopes delivered to our front porch every other day (yes, our seed companies do need to get a little more organized with how they pack orders). 90% of the seeds for our 2021 crops are safely in hand (or…

Salted Maple Granola

Hello dear ones and happy January. I know it has been a dark start to the new year and an extremely difficult past week. And I know it feels like right when we all thought we were finally going to get a little bit of a break from constantly holding our breath, we’re now experiencing…

Butternut Squash & Ricotta Toasts

Merry Christmas week everyone! Are you feeling festive yet? Thanks to a couple weeks of hikes on beautiful snowy trails and a massive cookie baking day with my mom (where we went completely insane and made nearly 900 cookies during one very-long day), I’m totally feeling in the holiday spirit. I’m glad we’re back in…

Watermelon Radish Avocado Toast

These beautiful toasts are the happiest little snow day treat. I don’t know what it is about the first big snow fall of the season, but now that we’ve got several inches on the ground in Southern Wisconsin I’m deeply attracted to vibrant, colorful foods. I was on a brown kick for much of November…
