Roasted Beet Salad with Oranges
This is a great winter recipe, Oranges are in season in Florida and beets are great storage crop that you can store for a long time in your crisper drawer in a plastic bag or are usually available at farmers markets. You can use any beets of your preference for this recipe
3 medium beets with beet greens attached
1 large orange
1/2 sweet onion, cut through root end into thin wedges
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
Preheat oven to 400°F. Trim greens from beets. Cut off and discard stems. Coarsely chop leaves and reserve. Wrap each beet in foil with a sprinkle of thyme. Place beets directly on oven rack and roast until tender when pierced with fork, about 1 hour 30 minutes. Cool. Peel beets, then cut each into 8 wedges or dice depending on your preference. Place beets in medium bowl. Cook beet greens in large saucepan of boiling water just until tender, about 2 minutes. Drain. Cool. Squeeze greens to remove excess moisture. Add greens to bowl with beets. Cut peel and white pith from orange. Working over another bowl and using small sharp knife, cut between membranes to release segments. Add orange segments and onion to bowl with beet mixture. Whisk vinegar, oil, garlic, and orange peel in small bowl to blend; add to beet mixture and toss to coat. You may have a little of the dressing left over, you don’t want the beets to swim in the dressing, just a good coating. Season with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Serve. Use extra dressing in chopped salad, or light coleslaw dressing.

holidays be filled with love, joy, and prosperity. Thank you for supporting us in 2018, we look forward to growing for you in 2019!
We hope you have a great holiday season! We are very close to taking some time to decompress from our move and are looking forward to seeing family this winter.
December means a bit of a slow down for us which gives us time to really dig in to the details of the farm and future planing. Below is a quick recap of things that we’ve been working on!
One of the transitions for the land will be to certify it to organic. Since we be bought the land we’ve been managing it organically. We’ve been working with our certifier (MOSA) for the last four years and have a good handle on how to move that process forward. We’ll be transitional to organic for 2019 and be able to officially certify in 2020. Other things that we are really excited about for the new farm is how much more accessible and easier it is to get to the new farm! We're working on plans to offer a couple of worker share opportunities, hopefully farm visits and tours and a road side stand. It's been exciting to dream and imagine new possibilities for how we farm going forward.
We've been endorsed by FairShare CSA Coalition, we'll have our official listing on their website by mid-December. For those of you who receive the insurance rebates or with FairShare’s Partner Shares & Snap Program this means you can continue to do so with our farm.
