Happy One Year Anniversary to the Squires! 

A Letter From Farmer Kris:

A little more than a year has passed since my family and I took over Tara Firma Farms. Challenges abound, we are feeling more and more confident each day running the CSA and farming the land responsibly. "Learn something new every day is our mantra" and there is still so much to learn. With that said, we want to take the next four weeks to share with you a little about where we came from, where we are now and where we hope to be in the near future!

Summer Farm Update & 50/50 Burger

Summer has taken over the farm by storm! It’s here for good… is the 4th of July already here? The farm has been bustling with activity-- we have been getting ready for piglets (fingers crossed that we should have them the first or second week of July), and the chickens are happily continuing their good work with the compost piles and egg production.

Simply Delicious Pancakes

Today I am sharing one of my favorite go-to's for breakfast. It is quick, nutritious and delicious!

Growing up, I loved pancakes.

As I grew older I realized that I am one of the many gluten intolerant people in the world. It was a sad day to realize a lot of foods were no longer an option. (But my health and happiness improved when I began to honor my bodies needs)

Beet Green, Peppercress and Tangerine Salad

Don’t throw those leafy beet tops away! Beet greens make fresh beets a two-in-one bargain because the leaves look, taste, and can be prepared like Swiss chard. Other greens to try in this recipe are Swiss chard, spinach, or flat-leafed kale.

Beef Tongue Tacos

Wait, what is offal?  

In short? Internal organs. Though we never pack offal in our members' regular shares, we do sell it upon request and even have an offal option! To some, this may seem a bit unusual. However, tongue tacos are very popular in Mexico. Why? Because tongue meat is incredibly tender, moist, and flavorful after being cooked for a few hours. So what are you waiting for? Try some tongue tacos :)
