Hurray for Local Farms!

Seems like a great time of year to pause and be grateful for the abundance that small local farmers bring to our community. It is December! Cherry Sprout has loads of local, farm direct produce on sale for you! That means somebody is out there in the dark cold morning picking and packing those fresh deliveries–leeks, kale, collards, mustard greens, swiss chard, cabbage. Or somebody picked and packed and carefully stored those vegetables and fruits during the height of the season so they could continue to provide for us into the winter–apples, pears, asian pears, onions, potatoes, winter squash. Thank you farmers!

Of course the best way to show your gratitude is to create your own healthy delicious meal with all of that beautiful produce. Kale stir fry? Potato leek soup? Butternut squash curry? Yes, please.
