My Tribe + RECIPE: Potato Crusted Winter Quiche

This weekend we spent 48 hours with 2300 other organic farmers at our favorite annual farming conference. It was just the breath of fresh air we needed to launch ourselves into what will certainly be the craziest eight months of our lives. I don’t know why I’m surprised. This annual conference always does a remarkable…

RECIPE: Savory Porridge Breakfast Bowl

Now after all that talk about batch cooking and non-fussy recipes (which I genuinely meant and is absolutely my philosophy 95% of the time), here I am coming at you with a totally fussy recipe. Apologies for the lack of consistency. I just like this meal way too much not to share it. I blame…

Pacific Northwest Road Trip

                  All of southern Wisconsin is covered in a thick, beautiful blanket of snow right now. Snow has been falling on and off for the past week, and I know I probably shouldn’t be so excited about it because it’s making getting anywhere difficult for everyone but I’m pretty…

Batch Cooking + RECIPE: Apple & Pear Baked Maple Oatmeal

I am all about the batch cooking and simple eating these days. I feel like I’ve done a total 180 from the start of my cooking career when I considered a great night one where I spent three hours in my kitchen making pretzels from scratch or some other all-consuming process. It’s not that I…

Farm Updates + RECIPE: Beet Citrus Salad

Hello friends! I am so happy to be back with you all after nearly two weeks of exploring the (very wet and very muddy) beauty of the Pacific Northwest. It was fabulous. I hope you followed along on IG so you too can see the all the magic and wonder that exists in this world….

Mexico City + RECIPE: Super Simple Street Tacos

Two months ago I took the most beautiful, freeing, serendipitous, dreamy adventure I had been on in nearly a decade. On a whim (or rather on a flight deals website), my old college travel bestie Michele and I  booked a vacation together after my farming season was mostly wrapped up. The entire trip budget: $700….

The last 365 days + RECIPE: Fancy Maple Eggnog

What a year my friends. What a whirlwind of a beautiful, frustrating, amazing, stressful, dynamic, confusing, utterly perfect, absolutely flawed year. Overall I’d have to say I’m pretty happy with my last 365 days. There were definitely a lot of highs and a lot of lows. When I look back at the past twelve months,…

Business on the Brain + RECIPE: Sheet Pan Chicken with Cabbage & Leeks

How were all your Thanksgivings? Were they good and filled with amazing food and not too many awkward/uncomfortable conversations? Our two Thanksgivings were a healthy mix of heartwarming and stressful, just as I’m learning most holidays are now that I’m an adult. Luckily, the food was out of this world. We dove right from our…

Thanksgiving!! + RECIPE: Aronia Berry Bourbon Smash

Raise your hand if you’re ready for Thanksgiving! Yeah, me neither. But we’re getting there. We know where we’re going (surprise! — we have finally found a way to attend both families’ celebrations this year) and I think I even know what I’m making (my favorite butternut squash salad and a variation on this green…

Goodbyes + RECIPE: Roasted Broccoli with Tahini Maple Mustard Sauce

Two days ago we said good bye to our employees on the most lovely late fall day. The breeze was gentle (but brisk), the sun was shining, and the team hadn’t been together in full for over three weeks (and hadn’t worked together without worker shares since the spring). It was the perfect way to…

The Last Last Box + RECIPE: Pork Carnitas with Roasted Vegetables

I know I told you we said goodbye to our CSA members two weeks ago. But then we had this “problem.” After the CSA ended on October 18th, our basement storage was still packed full of onions and potatoes (I’m talking hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of pounds of fully cured storage beauties) and our…
