Week #13 Farmer’s Note — Farm Visit Next Weekend: come by a sponsored bus — Edamame recipe

Dear CSA Member,

New this week… Edamame Beans! When preparing the edamame for eating separate the pod from the stalk and rinse. The Edamame can be steamed or boiled. When cooked you pop the bean out of the shell and eat only the bean. The shell is not edible. Below is a simple and tasty recipe link you can use. What is Edamame, and How Do I Eat It? Click Here

We hope that you will mark your calendar with the upcoming Fall Farm Festival. The Fall Farm Festival will be held on the farm September 2nd from 11:30-3:00. Please use the 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds, NY 12451 address. There are directions on the farm website Contact Us tab or using your GPS. It is a great day to come to the farm and see how your vegetables are grown, meet your farmers and walk the fields. We have the grill hot and will have pork as well as grilled Sweet Corn and Portobello Mushrooms and vegetarian chili. There will be fresh fruit, Stoneledge Farm Coffee, and water. We ask that members bring a dish to share so that lunch is a giant pot luck get together. If possible, please bring your own place settings, utensils, and cup. No pets, please.

We will have several other farms at the festival. Please, bring a freezer bag if you are interested in purchasing some items.

In addition we will have:
Local Bee Keeper- With an observation hive and Local Honey for Sale.
Stoneledge Farm Marketplace Farm Stand- Fix Brother Farm Apples, Some Stoneledge Farm Vegetables, Stoneledge Farm Coffee, Bearkill Road Maple Syrup, NY Produced Organic Seed Oils.

There are flowers to pick and take home from the flower garden. If you would like to take flowers home, please bring your own scissors and something that will keep the flowers until you get home. Wet paper towels or newspapers in a plastic bag will usually do the trick. There will be an “I Spy” game for kids of all ages as well as scarecrow making!

It is a great day on the farm and we look forward to seeing you there!

Enjoy the Harvest,
Candice for Everyone at Stoneledge Farm
