Week 1 is here! Note the change in the Pick-up Locations at the Farm this week!
week 1 CSA  • farm & ptc market • tuesday-saturday 

Welcome to Week 1 of the 2016 CSA Program! We're so excited to have each and every one of you join us this year and hope you enjoy the sessions with us.

This newsletter will have a little more information in it than you will see in the weeks to come. 

***TAKE NOTICE: We are changing the pick-up location at the farm for this week  to the commercial kitchen across the road from the blue house. Directions: once you're on Hill's Bridge Rd, you'll travel about 3/4 of a mile. Once the pavement ends, take the first gate on the left (white painted boards). Look for the vehicles parked beside the grey barn. I will be inside the kitchen (brown painted side). I will put signs up after lunch to help assist you in finding the pick-up site. 

For those of you familiar with the events here at Minter's Farm, we will be hosting our 7th Annual Inman Antique Truck Show this Saturday from 9-3. Admission is free. The Griffin Piedmont Region of the Antique Automobile Club of America will also be hosting their annual show and the 29th Chapter of the IH Club be hosting their swap meet. Come bring the family out and see the beautiful exhibits. 

One of the biggest issues we've found in the past is how to store and freeze the produce you receive in your share. I will have a few documents printed for you at the pick-up location. They will be regarding freezing vegetables, freezing fruits, and storing produce

Many of you have expressed interest in an all meat CSA. I have been in touch with my meat vendors and they're excited to get on board with this. I will be putting a post on our website (Postcards from the Po' Farm) this week asking for input on what people would like to see: all beef, all pork, all chicken, mixtures, monthly, weekly, bi-monthly, quantities, etc.. Please let me know what you'd like to see as well!
***I will have Membership Contracts to sign for those of you who haven't submitted yours yet.*** 

I will include recipes for items you'll find in your shares each week. Sometimes, the recipes will pertain to an item(s) from the week before. Please email me any recipes you love that involve items from the weekly shares. I'll post them on our Recipes page on our website. 


This week's bounty:


- Blackberries
- Yellow Squash
- Green Zucchini
- Tomatoes (green & red)
- Onions
- Peaches
- Blueberries


If you're interested in meat for Week 2, please let me know your order. I'll have items available from Happy Hogs LLC and Rocking Chair Ranch (beef) and chicken (whole, half birds, leg/thigh quarters, breasts (2 per pack), and wings). Please let me know in plenty of time so I can get the order put in and picked up. Some items may be a special cut, so keep this in mind!


Minted Berry Salad - a delicious recipe using both blackberries and blueberries! 

Italian-style Roasted Chicken and Vegetable Toss - a plethora of vegetables used with juicy chicken. You can use any combination of greens as your bed as well.

Blackberry-Orange Cake - a beautiful, refreshing dessert on a hot, summer-like day.

See you this week!

Locally yours,
