Views Around the Farm Stand + Lunch Menu for March 10-13

warm spinach salad with lardon, polenta crouton, and poached egg

Happy spring, everyone! Finally it’s feeling like things are warming up and drying out, for a little while at least. Last week the farm stand was pleasantly busy, and we just want to say a heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who’s patronized the farm stand since we opened in March. Your support at this time of year when our expenses are astronomically high but our income sources are limited, makes a real impact on our bottom line (still in the red but not quite as far in the hole). Other ways that you can help us (and other local farms) get through a difficult spring season include: shopping at winter/early spring farmers’ markets, purchasing a CSA share (more details here), or buying GTF bucks (essentially a gift certificate, but you save 10-15% on all your GTF purchases).

In other farm stand news, our Thursday and Friday dinners were quite well attended last week. (Again, thanks to y’all.) If the trend continues as we hope it does, it won’t be long before our dinner schedule will be entirely filled with reservations made ahead of time. We will serve you if you walk in, and we have room, but your best bet is to make a reservation.

Thursday and Friday Dinners: 5:30-9 pm, call 541-929-4270 for a reservation
