Over the years we’ve been collecting recipes from you, so if you peruse our recipes you may see your name on a few!!! The recipes we’ve accumulated over the years are also from meals we’ve created for our farm lunches based on what we’re harvesting at any given time. Our “cookbook” is special to us because it features recipes for produce/meat grown/raised on the farm. An article appeared in our news feed, about a database containing 5,000 historical cookbooks, created by Barbara Ketcham Wheaton,who is an honorary curator at Harvard University. While we won’t find our cookbook on that website, we look forward to perusing this database during the winter months!!!
Another interesting read this week was this article titled, “You have pesticides in your body. But an organic diet can reduce them by 70%” , which should make you feel good about eating food grown/raised at MHO since we follow organic production practices!!! In addition, just imagine all the pollinators that are killed with the pesticides, so not only do you have a reduction of pesticides in your body from eating MHO’s organic food, but you’re also buying into the farming practices that support biodiversity.
You’ll notice that your produce is bagged in the Appalachian Grown bags that we’ve use in the past because we ran out of the green biobags. We won’t be re-ordering those until we’ve conducted a survey to get your feedback on using these bags.
Here is a link to the online store to place your order.
Your Farmers (and cleaning staff),
