Good afternoon members,

Happy last week of Farm Share for the year!  Thank you all for your support this season and I hope you have enjoyed your shares.  This cold weather is making me so happy and excited for the upcoming holidays. My personal favorite holiday is the Winter Solstice, December 21st, which just so happens to be the last day to complete our member feedback survey.  I hope that everyone is able to provide us with your feedback, as it is crucial for our planning for next year.  The survey link is below and will only take 5-10 minutes and will help us continue to improve our service and to build strong relationships.

Golden beets are great because they don't turn everything pink and they are just as delicious. I always want beets with blue cheese, it's so earthy and sweet and savory all together. The recipe says it serves 4, but I ate it all.- Matt

Good afternoon members,

It is officially December, which seems crazy, but it is truly the most wonderful time of the year, filled with kale, beets, and biscuits!  Don't forget to check out our member store if you need any last minute gifts like, hot sauce, coffee, and soap.  

You will be receiving an email from me this week with a link to our end of the year member survey. The Global Growers Farm Share program is designed to be so much more than a transactional relationship with customers. We are working together to change the food system, and as a Farm Share member, we rely on your feedback to improve our organization.  I am asking that you take 5 minutes out of your day to provide us with your insight, so we can continue to build strong relationships with our members.

"Breakfast is my favorite meal, but just because this has sausage and egg in it doesn't mean that it has to be breakfast. It's delicious any time of day. Serve with our recipe for roasted turnips and apples, or with steamed rice."- Matt

Dear Farm Share Members,

I hope that everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and ate delicious food.  The season is beginning to wind down, but we still have a few more bountiful weeks to go!

Partner Product: Xocolatl Chocolate

"Our small batch chocolate is made from cacao that is sustainably and ethically grown, harvested, fermented and sun-dried on small farms throughout the Americas and East Africa.  Once we receive the whole beans we inspect them by hand, picking out any inferior or broken beans. We then hand-crack, winnow, and stone-grind them for days until they have become a beautiful chocolate liquor. We use only two ingredients - cacao and organic cane sugar - in our single-origin dark chocolate.  No added cocoa butter, no soy emulsifiers and no fillers of any kind so that what you taste is the true flavor of the chocolate from different regions.  Our flavored bars are also made of two-ingredient chocolate, but have additional flavor ingredients like peppermint, coffee, coconut milk, and sea salt, all sourced with an eye for local, organic and fair.  By sticking with just cacao and cane sugar, the end result are bars that are not only delicious, but that are also vegan, soy and gluten free.  "- Xocolatl

This is a simple side when you have beautiful young carrots. Honestly, it's still good even if the carrots aren't beautiful but it looks better on the plate if they are.

This makes a great side dish that can go with almost anything. It's easy to throw together for a holiday potluck or to round out your Thanksgiving table. The roasted turnips are juicy and savory which is a great contrast to the sweetness of roasted apples.

Dear Farm Share Members,

If you are someone who is notorious for procrastinating on your holiday shopping, like I am, then please read this carefully. This holiday season the Global Growers staff are here to help you, we have developed a gift basket that is full of some of our favorite partner products and the new Global Growers sticker! You will be able to order these baskets in the online store, or at your pick-up site up until Thanksgiving. With the help of volunteers, the baskets will be assembled, and then ready for you to pick up the first week of December. The best part is that the proceeds from the baskets go to support increasing the number of community garden plots for new Americans in Clarkston.

We are very excited for the up coming member event at the Bamboo Creek Farm on Sunday, November 12th, and we hope to see you all there! 

Thank you,
The Global Growers Team

(Coffee) Grounds for Empowerment

Every morning most of us wake up and pour ourselves a delicious cup of hot black death, and life becomes instantly better. But when we are drinking the delicious cup of coffee do we ever ask, where did this come from? We here at Global Growers are no different and love our daily dose of coffee, but we have partnered with an organization who we believe models sustainable, ethical, and equitable practices, Grounds for Empowerment.  

Grounds for Empowerment provides women specialty coffee farmers the market connections and business know-how to enable them to reach their full economic potential. Their three-year incubator program supports them as they transform promising coffee farms into prosperous small businesses.

Recently our Farm Manager, Todd, and Communications Manager, Desiree, got an opportunity to meet some of the women from Nicaragua who work for Grounds for Empowerment. They were inspired by these women's stories, which only further fuels our desire to support this organization.

Meals with Matt: Chili Smothered Roasted Sweet Potatoes

This spicy chili is the perfect compliment to roasted sweet potatoes. It's kind of like mashed potatoes and gravy but so much more flavorful and complex. This is a perfect meal for these chilly (pun intended) evenings.

Partner Product : Oliver Farm Artisan Oils

FullSizeRender-3.jpg

As oil production has expanded and I begin to understand a little more about the properties and uses of various oils I am filled with awe and wonder at the countless ways it can be used.
Naturally tasty, nut and seed oils are necessary for balanced nutrition.  They can be used in fuel, cleaners, soap, cosmetic products, and have medicinal uses as well. Our simple process, genuine care for your approval, and desire to keep it pure and fresh make Oliver Farm a natural choice for any pantry.
