As always, thank you everyone for your support! And please don't forget to sign up for the Summer/Fall CSA Program. Spots are filling fast and the official deadline is March 21st! Feel free to contact me with any questions! Thanks!
We are buisily palnting flowers and sowing veggie seeds here on the farm! We are still accepting Sumer/Fall applications for our CSA program as well. The other night the staff and I watched the Movie "Food Inc." I have seen it before but I thought I would go ahead recommend it to our customers. It is a must see for anyone interested in not only farming, but what they eat in general. If you would like to see the daily battle small farms deal with everyday or to know the one you are participating often without even realizing it... this is the movie to see. At times the film is disturbing but it's not a film you want to turn a blind eye to.
The official website is www.foodincmovie.com
Check it out and please feel free to comment. We all need to communicate with one another to spread this word!
Thanks for reading!

Some of our members have been telling me about these kale chips that they have been making! They sounded delish so I found a basic recipe and you can doctor it up with garlic powder or other spices if you wish. I tried them with old bay and they rocked! What a healthy snack! If anyone ever has any other recipes they would like me to shae please let me know!
- 1 bunch kale
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a non insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- With a knife or kitchen shears carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning salt.
- Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, 10 to 15 minutes.
Hi Everyone! There is some exciting news today at the farm! One of our Springer Spaniels (Penny Lane) had 10 puppies!!!!! They are springer/lab mix if anyone is interested :)
Ok here is what is in your basket this week....
Parsnips (or) carotts
True Vidallia Onions (Can only be grown in Georgia and there is only a small window of time when they are available as "spring size". We couldn't resist buying them for everyone to try. THey are awesome in anyhting you would use an onion in but also roasted on their own!)
Specialty Item This Week: Home-Made Roasted Tomatoe Sauce (Made with our Tomatoes) and Old Fashion Durum Wheat Noodles. (The sauce is very versitile and only has a few ingredients; tomatoes, onions, garlic, fresh basil, olive oil, red wine, sea salt, cracked black pepper. The sauce gets it sweet flavor from the roasted heirloom tomatoes. It can be used for as a starter for soup, basted on meats, other veggies and meats can be added to make it a heartier sauce. It is fresh and has never been frozen so you also have the option of freezing what you don't use right away.) Enjoy!!!
I have started a Zahradka Farm blog on You Tube. Their isn't very much on there yet but I plan on documenting the farm season start to finish! It should be interesting at lleast ;)
