Your weekly update on what's cookin' in your Field Goods bag. Overview of contents, plus recipe suggestions for your perusing pleasure. 
Theme: Porto-believe it!
You love mushrooms. How could you not? These portobellos are low in cholesterol, sodium, and saturated fat, making them a dream addition to all your favorite recipes. They come in all sizes, from crimini baby bellas to big honking burgers. First wrangled for commercial farming in France, portobello mushrooms have been filling hungry bellies since the 1700s! Our mushrooms are from local Catskill third generation mushroom farmers, the Bulich Family.    

Stay Tuned for Scenes From Our Next Episode: We anticipate fresh greens for the entire month of May. You can expect the likes of broccoli rabe, spinach, microgreens, pea shoots, Swiss chard, chives, salad mix, you name it! Like this week, we'll mix in mushrooms and potatoes and some heartier produce—Easter’s a-comin’ but we know you’re not rabbits! 
 
Exciting News! Time to kick your friends & co-worker off the fence & onto the veggie train.
The Nutrition Science Department at The Sage Colleges is running a study to learn about the effects of Field Goods on diet.   Anyone that signs up from now on can participate & get $5 credit as a "thanks so much".  Help us spread the word. The study will go far in promoting healthy eating and small farms.
