Roasted Potato & Kale Salad

Wowee! It is cold outside. Here in the Midwest, we went from high summer (temps in the high 80s and overwhelming tomato abundance) to deep fall (like the “should we turn the heat on” kind of fall day) in the blink of an eye. And honestly, all of Wisconsin is not really sure how to…

Summer Salmon Cobb Salad

A couple weeks ago we gave the most beautiful heads of summer romaine to our CSA members and I was just giddy about it. The addition of romaine into our August CSA boxes made me feel like a whole new world of recipes had opened up– BLTs, lettuce cups, wedge salads, cobb salads, all the…

Sweet Corn Pizza Two Ways

Every year we make a few adjustments to our CSA plan to try and align it more and more with what we think the best mix of produce is for our CSA members. This year we decided that meant way more sweet corn than in years past. We planted two massive plantings (of 11 beds…

Zucchini Pie

Well, we are into July and officially going through the “farming is hard” phase of summer and if I’m being honest, I’m totally and completely grumpy about it. For some naive reason, I thought (for the eighth time in eight years) we had it all together and would sail through this particular summer without any…

Gratitude & Farmer Knowledge + RECIPE: Blueberry & Kohlrabi Chicken Salad

My husband and I spent last weekend at the Organic Vegetable Producers’ conference in Madison: a beautiful two day affair of organic pioneers, newbies, researchers and friends. The tone at this particular conference (which is only in its third year) fills my heart with so much joy because in addition to the kinds of conversations…

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…

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…

Grilled Simplicity + RECIPE: Orange Ginger Spare Ribs with Asian Slaw

The past week has been all about recovery and getting my life back together post Soil Sisters weekend. It’s still the farming season so we’re still working hard, but also trying to find some moments for self care. A coffee enjoyed in the morning without obligations for just a few minutes. Quick meetings for collaborative…
