Theme: Let's Fund a Farm and Kohlrabi (Not Just Another Alien Species)

Our first delivery was June 1, 2011! To celebrate our 5th anniversary, we have created the LET’S FUND A FARM Challenge. We want to highlight the important impact that our customers have on our region’s small farms. We asked some of our farmers how Field Goods has helped their farms. They told us that their average sales and profitability have all increased significantly since they began working with us. Acreage for this group of 20+ farms increased 183%! Field Goods was a big part of their success.

The Challenge!
Add 500 new customers during the month of June.
500 New Customers = Enough Produce to Fund a Farm for a Year.

Field Goods was built on word-of-mouth. We figured that if we enlisted your help we’d blow this goal out of the water. Here are two tools to help you on your mission.

  1. $50 Field Goods Credit to anyone who refers a new pick-up location (with at least 5 subscribers). Easy peasy: email us a contact and we do the rest. We deliver to workplaces, Ys, libraries, and local retailers throughout eastern NY state all the way to the Bronx and in Fairfield County.
  2. $5 off for any new customer. Tell your friends and colleagues about Field Goods. All they need to do is email us their name and coupon code "fundafarmer" before July 1. 

Now on to Kohlrabi! Star Wars fans many wonder if George Lucas used the Kohlrabi as inspiration for some of his aliens, Kohlrabi is a great item to grow in our region because it is an early season crop and is relative disease and pest resistant. Kohlrabi is good for you and the environment. Go Kohlrabi! Here are some Kohlrabi facts:

1. Eat it raw or cooked.
2. Peel it!
3. You can eat the leaves.
4. Separate the leaves from the bulb to store. Leaves go in a bag; the bulb in the fridge crisper.
5. Kohlrabi is sweet.
6. Quick Fix: shave, grate or cut into thin strips, toss with chopped apples and vinaigrette…add some mint. Voila!

Albany Business Review published a story about Donna Williams, Field Goods' Founder! 

"Donna Williams' experience working in banking, publishing, technology and food manufacturing shaped Field Goods, a food subscription service that connects small farmers to consumers. 'I've done so many things and none of them were related to agriculture,' Williams says. 'I've had this varied career, but all of the elements of it fed into what Field Goods became.'" If you'd like to read more about how and why she started click here.

Formisano Farms (IPM)

Shockingly sweet and perfect with pea shoots. The key to Kohlrabi is peeling away the skin and any hard layers until you reach the light layer of crisp flesh. Kohlrabi can be eaten raw, boiled, roasted, mashed, and fried. It can also be stuffed, steamed, or added to soups.

Swiss Chard
Migliorelli Farm (IPM)

Cooked chard is a great stand-in for spinach. The stems can be steamed or grilled like asparagus. While Swiss Chard is naturally bitter, cooking mellows the flavor. Unless the stems are tender, remove them and just prepare the leaves. You can prepare chard in a jiffy by sautéing it in olive oil with some garlic—toss in some chili for a little zip.

An outstanding potato that rivals Yukon Gold for richness of flavor and texture. Toss together a potato salad or roast with fresh garlic and herbs.

Lettuce Mix
Radicle Farm (OG)

Lettuce is a great way to put fresh salads on your table, and as often as you can. In addition to other prepped vegetables, for a more filling and flavorful boost add roasted nuts, dried cranberries, roasted sunflower seeds, shaved parmesan, chick peas, etc. We REALLY like adding roasty toasty sunflower seeds!
