Thank Your For a Wonderful Season 2!!

Well, we’ve reached the end of another great season of the Global Growers Farm Share and have a few final items to share with you.

First, we wanted to thank you for being a member and supporting our partner farmers throughout the year. The Farm Share is the most consistent source of income for our partner farmers, providing steady pay throughout the season, making it easier to budget and plan, and allowing them to work on the farm full-time. Thank you for being a part of the work we do.

Second, while you all surely know about the work we do at the farm (and where your veggies are coming from!), you may not know about our network of community gardens in DeKalb County. The gardens provide a space for local families to grow food that is connected to their culture and traditions. The gardens also keep memories alive, build community, and provide comfort and purpose. Our goal is to raise $15,000 by the end of the year to support hundreds of new Americans as they put down roots in their new HOME and GROW healthy food for their new community. We are already 25% of the way - if each of you donates just $25 we could almost reach the half-way point! Learn more about the campaign and make your contribution here.

Finally, we’ll be sending out a survey about your Farm Share experience in the next week. The survey responses help us shape next year’s Farm Share program to better meet your needs, so if you have feedback, now is the time to share it! Look out for an email with the survey link next week. If you complete the survey before December 21, you’ll be entered to win a Global Growers tote bag!

Did you know Georgia has a growing citrus industry? Satsumas are small, seedless oranges with thin skin that's easy to peel. They are juicy, very sweet and low in acid. A cousin to mandarin oranges that are being grown throughout Southeastern Georgia.

Craft Chocolate in a Seedshell:

Knowing that chocolate is made from the seed of a fruit tree makes everything in life better. Delicate cacao trees bear fruit pods, also called cacao. Inside each pod, enveloped in the tartly sweet white fruit pulp, are about 40 seeds which will be harvested by cacao farmers living around the world, close to the equator.  

After carefully tending these trees & then harvesting the pods, the farmers ferment the seeds in wooden boxes for days before drying them in the tropical sun.  Now referred to as cacao beans or cocoa beans, these seeds get inspected, weighed & shipped to Atlanta, where we hand sort them, pulling out any that are flawed. 

We then roast the beans ourselves, and crack & winnow them before adding them to our stone grinders where they will grind for days, slowly turning into liquid that we then temper and mold into bars we wrap by hand.

Gai Lan a.k.a Chinese broccoli is an Asian vegetable. It's name in Chinese literally translates to "mustard orchid". In the same family as broccoli and kale, gai lan should be stored in an unsealed plastic or cloth produce bag in your fridge. Use within three days. It's delicious stir fried, roasted, and grilled! 

An easy introduction to gai lan that can't go wrong: Stir Fry Gai Lan. Try it in lieu of your go-to Chinese take out! Add some protein and serve with rice to make it a meal.

Thanks for a fun evening at The Learning Kitchen!

I had a really great time hanging out with some of our Farm Share members on Monday evening. Lyn Deardorff of Preserving Now gave a great class all about canning. Each of us left with new knowledge of canning to help us preserve our Farm Share veggies to enjoy year round! A big shout out to Lyn for teaching us one of the “lost arts”.

Check out the photos below to see how it all went down!

Storage Tip: Cilantro

cilantro.JPG

This storage tip can be applied to most leafy fresh herbs. If you you’re not going to use all of your cilantro right away, this is the best way to keep it fresh for a couple of weeks!

Place the cilantro in a small jar with enough water to cover the ends. Cover the jar with a plastic bag (any sandwich bag works well) and place in your refrigerator. Grab stems as you need them.

Another great way to always have cilantro on hand is to chop it and freeze it in an ice tray with either water or oil. This way you have fresh cilantro anytime of year!

I get asked often if you can cook and eat the greens of hakurei turnips. The answer is always yes! Hugh Acheson, chef/owner of several Georgia restaurants including Empire State South and The National has a delicious and easy recipe that calls for both roots and greens of your turnips.

Who knows, maybe this dish will end up on your Thanksgiving table this year!

Storage Tip: Radishes

If you want to keep your radishes fresh in the fridge for up to two weeks here’s what you need to do: when you bring your radishes home, first remove the stems. Give your radishes a good wash and trim their tops and bottoms off—this helps them stay dry in your fridge. Keep the newly washed radishes stored in the refrigerator in an airtight bag or jar in your fridge layered between lightly damp paper towels. Voila! Fresh radishes for days and days!

She has completed coursework and been awarded a Certificate of Master Food Preserver from Cornell University Extension Service based in Ithaca, New York.  She has also completed additional coursework in food science at the University of Georgia. As a requirement for processing and selling low-acids foods (such as pickles and salsas), Lyn has completed the University of Georgia “Better Process Control School” training and subsequently received certification as awarded by UGA and the Georgia State Department of Agriculture.

Partner Product: Bee Wild Honey

honey.JPG

In the Mountains of North Georgia, from April until June, the “Bee Wild” bees travel 2-3 miles from their hives to gather nectar of blackberry, tulip poplar, and hundreds of other flowers. This wide variety of nectar sources is what gives Wildflower Honey its depth and complexity, much like a fine Cabernet. Enjoy this treat as a sweetener in tea, with a robust cheese such as goat cheese, or as a glaze on chicken or salmon.

Storage Tip: Apples

Apples are happiest when kept cool at a high humidity. Store them in the crisper drawer in your refrigerator kept in a plastic bag with holes in it or cover them with a damp paper towel. Be mindful about what other produce lives in the crisper, Apples give off ethylene gas with can cause other items to decay faster.

Oliver Farms.jpg

This is the oil that got it all started in 2012.  Clay grew sunflowers with the intention of harvesting and pressing them for oil that fall.  Blessed with a good crop that year he purchased a press and made oil from sunflowers grown here on the farm. 

Oliver Farm Sunflower Oil has a bold rich flavor and is a bright yellow color.  It is a great oil to use for light sauteing and its bold flavor is great on salads.

Sunflower oil is also a great choice for using with high cooking temperatures and is also a good source of Vitamin E!

What do I do with Dandelion Greens?

Dandelion greens are super good for you! There are lots of ways to benefit from this bitter tasting leaf. Saute or braise them with lots of garlic and lemon-serve them as a side or mix in with pasta topped with a cheese like Parmesan. Juice them for a quick liver cleanse. You can incorporate them into a salad tossed in a citrusy vinaigrette. Swap out half the amount of basil for a batch of pesto. A natural diuretic and full or Vitamins A, C, K and B2, dandelion greens also have more iron and protein than spinach! So eat up! 


What’s Cooking?: Dandelion Green Pesto

Lupa’s Kitchen Kombucha is a living health drink made by fermenting tea and sugar with the kombucha culture. The culture is often referred to as a “scoby” (symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts). Through the culturing process, there is a reduction of sugar and a release of friendly and beneficial bacteria, filling kombucha with loads of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and health-giving organic acids.

Lupa’s Kitchen founder Lupa Irie, ND has been brewing organic kombucha since the early ‘90’s, selling it locally in the Atlanta area since 2010 and is now a proud member of Kombucha Brewers International!

What’s Komatsuna?

Commonly known as ‘Japanese mustard spinach’, komatsuna has been grown in Japan since the 18th century. It gets its name from the area in present-day Tokyo near the Komatsu-gawa River. It is a leafy green with a flavor has been variously described as a mustard-spinach cross, or mild-mustard cabbage. But komatsuna is neither a spinach or a mustard, though it is a member of the brassica family. It is high in calcium, vitamins A and C, and contains more iron than spinach. It is best eaten steamed, lightly boiled or added to a stir-fry.

We Did It!

Thanks for a great first week of the second season of Farm Share. It was great to meet some of you and I look forward to getting to know more of you throughout the season.


We’re Building New High Tunnels!

hightunnel.jpg

Why High Tunnels?

Currently, we only distribute food on behalf of our partner farmers from April to December, despite the year-round enthusiasm for fresh, local food.

  • High tunnels allow us to extend our winter season

  • We can close the gap and harvest food every month of the year

  • In year one, we project an additional $25,000 in sales for our partner farmers

  • We estimate our farmers’ revenue will increase by $125,000 in five years

IMG_8073.JPG

What is a High Tunnel?

These simple, metal-framed structures create a protected environment for crops. Think of them like unheated greenhouses that still offer temperature and humidity control, without depending on heating and cooling equipment. By protecting crops from harsh field conditions such as wind, rain, and hard freezes, we can extend the standard growing season.

In other words, we can jump-start winter vegetables by raising the temperature in a closed high tunnel, and we can also lower the temperature with shade cloth during the hottest summer days. This means increased variety for consumers and longer harvest windows for farmers.


GGbutter.JPG

Their wheat is grown, by their family, in Bleckley County, Ga. After harvest, they take the wheat berries, put them in a commercial mill, and grind them between 2 stones. This produces “virgin” whole-wheat flour. It is referred to it as “virgin,” because it is unaltered from the berry to the flour. This is “true” whole-wheat flour unlike anything you get off a shelf.

Why is fresh milled flour so important? It’s actually very simple. Flour has the most flavor at the moment the berries are milled into flour! At this moment, the nutrient content is also at its highest! As time goes on, flavor and nutrient composition decrease.

What’s Gai Lan?

Gai Lan literally translates to “mustard orchid”. It is the Cantonese name for Chinese broccoli or Chinese kale. In the brassica family, gai lan’s flavor is similar to broccoli, but slightly more bitter. It cooks quickly and can be stir-fried, sautéed, steamed and boiled. Store it unwashed in a plastic bag in your refidgerator. Use within three days.

Hello Members!

Welcome to Season 2 of the Global Growers Farm Share.

This is your first member newsletter for the Fall Season! Being a Global Growers Farm Share member is one of the best ways to show support to the famers we partner with.

Each week’s basket is full of produce grown by farmers who work hard to provide you with healthy, naturally grown food. Each farmer receives 75% of the sale of vegetables included in each basket. Global Growers stands firmly behind  this percentage and hopes to initiate change in other Farm Share subscriptions.

We thank you for your participation and support as we work to change the farming systems and bridge the gap between farmer equity and refugee resettlement.  

Looking to a great Fall Season and don’t forget to bring your own bag to your pickup!

What’s a Daikon Radish?

Daikons are a large variety of radish commonly found in Japanese cooking. They are typically sweet and mild in flavor and can be very versatile. It can be treated like the smaller varieties of rashish we are used to seeing and served as a raw veggie for dipping or in a salad. Try throwing it into a stir-fry or fall soup (it is officially soup season, isn’t it?). Pickle it to keep it around longer—it’s great mixed in with a salad or added to a sandwich.

If your daikon comes with the leaves still attached, cut them off and store both pieces separately in the refrigerator.

Ok, I know that this may seem like a lot to ask for sandwich making, but I have faith that you are an adventurous bunch who are always looking to bring that “wow factor” to your weekly lunch. This recipe hails from the once popular Brooklyn spot Saltie (r.i.p.) and brings a whole new life to the veggie sandwich.

The beauty of this recipe is that most of it can be made ahead of time. Just assemble and your good to go!
