Greetings from Fresh Start Farms!

These warm, sunny days are perfect for getting the farms ready for the upcoming season. Sibomana’s garlic is peaking out of the winter straw covering and Sidi and Isha planted carrots and beets last week! Meet Sidi and Isha on Facebook or Instagram.

During the winter months, the Fresh Start Farmers attended workshops on topics such as wholesale planting plans and food safety. They finished the workshop series this month and are ready to get outside and start growing food! Pictured below are Fresh Start Farmers at their final workshop for this season.

of the Week

We still have some cooler days ahead so what’s better than comfort food! Short ribs slowly braised in a rich braising liquid and finished with a little lemon zest and served over whipped potatoes, with simple roasted vegetables alongside.

Grab some Robie Farm Short Ribs, potatoes, carrots, turnips, and beets this week, and enjoy! 

Looking for a more hands-off/quicker way to enjoy this meal? Try a slow cooker version!

Protein Items

LaValley Farm’s Pastured Eggs

LaValley’s hens enjoy a cage-free and barn-free existence. The chickens roam freely across the 60 acres of farmland in Hooksett/Allenstown, eat a diet of only natural ingredients, and rotate around the farm to help with fertilization. These hens do have coops for nighttime protection and laying boxes, but they are outside, foraging and roaming the fields every day. 

Just look at those happy hens!
