What the Heck do I do with all these Greens?!

Depending on who you talk to, they’re either going to rave about all the uses for greens such as Swiss Chard, Kale, Arugula and Spinach, or they’re going to tell you to GET-THAT-AWAY-I-DON’T-WANT-ANYMORE.

We’re lucky to live in a climate where most months of the year many greens are available! 

It can be as simple as…

+Braising

+Making a Salad

+Throwing in a Smoothie

+Chopping into a soup

+Adding it to a meat pie

+So much more!

Here’s some recipes to get your mouth watering and the recipe ideas churning!

At the Saturday Market April 12th

Everyone around the farm is a busy bee planting, tending greenhouses, seedlings and fields. New lambs are bounding around while the new Mums enjoy a bit of grass.

As always, the farm stand is open 10am-5 pm at 2521 Northend Road and the freezers have a bounty of meat! Whole chickens (Check this out for how to cut up your own!), various cuts of Lamb and Pork, as well as jams, jellies, relishes, soap and Wendi’s Sea Salt can be found.

By the end of Market season last year, theres some serious Market burn out going on, but we’re fresh into this new season with delicious goodies and produce to be had!
