Farm Share Week 21, Oct 21-24, 2015

Hi from the farm,
I am all too aware that our time out in the fields is fleeting. Each thing we harvest seems just like a gift and everything not damaged by the frost gets all the sweeter (like carrots!). They are so nice I left the tops on this week.
This may be your last week if you are on a biweekly schedule (sad, but true). If so you should have received an email with some details. Your last delivery comes in a cardboard box so you need not return it.
I hope your kitchen smells amazing with some rich fall fare this week!
One new item this week is celery root. It is definately one of the uglier veggies out there but really very tasty. It’s a great addition to soups or I love to add it to mix mixtures like in tacos. It amps up the flavour. I like to cook it till nice and tender.
Do ‎you have a favourite celery root (celeriac) recipe? If so, don’t hold out on us! Share it here 🙂
This week I’m going to try this  roasted celery root and carrot recipe.

About the Author


My name is Stephanie Hofman and this is my 5th year with the farm share program.
I am an earth loving hippie-follower of Christ-lover of all people and love to try new things. I am not a blogger outside of zephyr organics-so please keep this in mind as I continue to learn the in’s and out’s of what it means to create a good blog and to be a good blogger!

My family and I do our best to make everything at home from scratch, but we are not fully organic, non-GMO, nor are we dairy free or gluten free. I do my best with what I have and am slowly but surely making changes towards a more healthy lifestyle.

I try and keep the recipes that I share to encompass all diets-some will be desserts, some will be juicing recipes (last year I failed epically at my juicing fast-FYI don’t add ‘more kale’ just to use it up in a recipe) some gluten and dairy free-some vegan and many in between.

Most of the items in the box I am familiar with now-but a few years ago I didn’t know what bokchoy was nor had I ever heard of swiss chard-now they are my 2 favourite items to get in my box!

I’m a free going spirit who has taught herself most things and love to help others out since I’ve only become who I am and gotten to where I am in life because of the love and generosity of those who’ve I’ve encountered. I’ve never been very good at spelling nor have I been very computer savvy. Any feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

Thank you so much for joining us on this journey towards supporting local farmers and supporting the growing organic food movement. May your box bless you and your family all season long and I look forward to sharing my recipe successes and failures with you.
