Welcome to the Lunch Crew! Lunch Menu: Week of March 31, 2015

It’s a sunny April at the Farmstand! We are up and running – the season proper has started. We are open five lunches and three dinners a week. We have some familiar faces in new and exciting spots, as usual. We will have some bumps while settling in, but also new blood bringing new ideas and energy. People come first for us! You can find the week’s menu at the end of this post.

Lunch Menu: Week of March 17, 2015

We have enjoyed seeing you again after our winter off – lots of smiles.

We have come to that awesome time of the year when the creek beds on the farm provide stinging nettles. Known as a spring tonic, they provide fresh green and vitamins to bodies that had been eating preserved meats and store-able veggies. We are serving them with raviolis!

Lunch Menu Sketch: March 20-22, 2014

The quince tree has leafed out and the nettles are growing. The chef got a sunburn from jogging in the sunshine. The risotto on last week’s menu was the big seller. All of the new crew members are coming on board. Our new Pastry Chef Hamid is showing a distinctive style in our pastry case and at the markets. Van Vleet meat is teaching me about the difference between a mock tender and the teres major (the steak we sell as a Zip Steak). The river is down and morale is up. The pizza oven is so thrilled to be hot (700 degrees Farenheit) again.
