I am hoping that besides the turkey, there will be some of your pork products. Frankly, I will take anything your pork is so good. As to other items, I might have indicated a liking for several chickens but if not let me do so here. Hens are good for soups, broilers are always good. Whatever combination fits your supply works for me.
I have sent a blank check to Bob with a memo indicating a limit (yes, I was anxious sending it through the mail!) of $700. I have no idea what the total amount will be but I do know that whatever you want to charge me it is worth it. If the amount exceeds $700 I will send you the balance if that works for you.All of which is to say, I will miss seeing you and greeting your chickens this year. Know that I am deeply grateful for the work you do and the foods you produce. I will read the first paragraph of your letter to my family as we contemplate a perfectly cooked bird to honor that bird and remind us all that producing such food requires love and patience. And sacrifice.With love to you and your family,
While we have enjoyed participating in this CSA for a long time now, I think this was the most bountiful year we’ve experienced. And not just quantity, but variety and quality, too. I can’t even eat tomatoes from anywhere else anymore – I’m so spoiled with the delicious ones we’ve received from you the last few months. Last night we had the best butternut squash, the night before I had a wonderful soup with the most delicioius Asian cabbage, carrots, celery and leeks… In fact every week this past season, we have felt the same – loving it all!
I haven’t had a chance to try the sunchokes yet, but I’m planning on roasting them later this week.
Thank you for all of your hard work – I couldn’t be happier!
~Beautiful! MHOF knows how to grow great food! Thank you!
We were eating a late dinner last night (soccer season always has us rushing to fit food in before bed) and I gave the kids a side of sliced tomato as their vegetable.My daughter, for the first time in her life, ASKED for a salad too. We normally rotate salad greens as a vegetable throughout the week, but she really doesn’t like them and only eats them begrudgingly. So, this was shocking to me. I happily whipped up a MHOF salad with lettuce, carrots, tomatoes and cucumbers and she scarfed it right down.I asked her what made her suddenly want a salad and she said “Because it’s Julie’s salad. Lately I’ve been wondering why ALL salad can’t be as good as Julie’s salad?”So there’s that. You have effectively changed our lives and our children’s nutrition through your amazing growing. Thank you!
We loved the corn! I also think your celery and carrots are really special, and was pretty excited to see those in the bag. My son, 5 months old, has 6 teeth now, 4 on top and 2 on the bottom and he’s a bit fussier than normal with all this activity, and a frozen carrot works really nicely to soothe his teething pains (I’m sure people would say it’s a choking hazard but we keep an eye on him and he hasn’t yet come close to taking a bite out of the carrot) – it’s been so nice to use one of your carrots… all this nutrition is really nurturing my family, thank you. We also used the Swiss chard in a really yummy stir fry… Thank you!
