Pickup site change – this week only

Because the public schools are closed tomorrow, the distribution site will be moved for this week only (SEE NEWSLETTER FOR LOCATION).  Next week we will be back at PS9 for the duration of the season, which now ends with a final pick up on November 13 to make up for the broken-down-truck delivery we missed in August.

A la carte dairy orders

From our partners at Milk Not Jails:

We invite you to place an order for a special, one-time delivery of any of our many dairy products including fresh cream for your fall soups, butter for baking, greek and flavored yogurts, kefir, cheese and more from the seven family farms we serve. This month we are offering a discount on Mango and Strawberry yogurt drinks from Ronnybrook — just $2.00 — and perfect for sending your family off to school with the protein they need to excel!

The order deadline is Monday, September 29th at 8pm. Place your order here, and we’ll deliver the week of October 6th.

You may contact us directly at or call (917) 719-6455 with any questions.

The Weekly Challenge – Using it all

We have reached the beginning of autumn when the days are colder, the tender veggies are done and our farmer is working hard to harvest all that he can before the ground freezes.  This is weather for squash soup and onion tarts.  Or, if you want to combine these lovely vegetables, try Ottolenghi’s recipe for roasted squash with onions, za’atar and tahini…
