NEWS FROM THE FARM

  • Weather Update
    April 19, 2017

    The gorgeous weather has jumpstarted local crops; beautiful Jersey asparagus is here along with organic baby leeks and a mild variety of Jersey-grown kale.  Local chives, radishes and arugula are also in full swing. Availability for West Coast broccoli, cauliflower and aspiration is better, but prices remain high. Improvements on other row crops like broccoli rabe, Iceberg and leaf lettuces are still 2-3 weeks away.

Market Update



 

  • Fruit | The first Mara de Bois strawberries will be available by pre-order next week and Harry’s Berries just keep getting better. Figs are limited right now as we wait for the domestic season to start. Looking a little further out, California growers predict a stellar stone fruit season!  We anticipate early cherry varieties to hit the first week of May and Frog Hollow apricots should follow shortly thereafter.  

  • Vegetables | The biggest vegetable news of the week is happening in our backyard: local asparagus, leeks, herbs, greens and radishes are all in full swing!  California row crops have started to turn a corner, but prices remain high on broccoli, cauliflower and aspiration.  We won’t see relief on broccoli rabe, Iceberg or leaf lettuces for at least two more weeks.

  • Organics | Organic row crops from California continue to face the same challenges as conventional: supplies will be tight and prices high until we make it through the transition towards the end of the month.   

  • Unique + Foraged | Yellowfoot, Black Trumpet and Hedgehog mushrooms are winding down as the season transitions.  Chanterelles will gap for a couple weeks until the European season gets going.  For spring mushrooms, Mousseron and St. George varieties should start up within the next ten days.  We’re also expecting some new wild greens including wild fennel and elderberry.
