(2) Circle Brook Farm
Circle Brook Farm is offering one additional share, a STOCK UP SHARE, to be delivered on November 18th. The share will include various vegetables that store well, so that you will be able to enjoy produce from the farm well into the winter months as well as provide veggies for your Thanksgiving feast.

The total weight of this share will be about 60 lbs. Approximately a third of the share will be winter squash- butternut, acorn, spaghetti, buttercup (kabocha), delicata, and sweet dumpling squash. The share will also include an assortment of root vegetables such as carrots, beets, parsnips, turnips, rutabaga, celery root and radishes. This year it will also be including Jerusalem artichokes aka sunchokes and another tuberous member of the sunflower family-yacon (pronounced jacone). It is sweet and juicy with a light orange color (carotene) and is similar to jicama. It can be grated raw into salads or cooked in stir fries for a water chestnut like crunch. The root crops will comprise about 15 lbs. of the share. There will also be about 15 lbs. of potatoes, onions and garlic in the share. The potatoes will include some fingerlings and an assortment of other varieties of potatoes. Also included will be green and red cabbage, and whatever greens we still have in the field at this time, such as arugula, broccoli raab or other mustard greens, kale, lettuce and spinach. It is probable that there will be broccoli and/or cauliflower and there will certainly be Brussels sprouts.

The cost of this final share is $90, which is an excellent value, equivalent to a wholesale price for much of the produce included.

Circle Brook Farm order must be received no later than FridayNovember 11th.  

Pick up for both the meat shares and stock up share will be at the Farm & Fork Society's Millburn location on November 18 between 12:30 and 3pm.
