One of our goals is to not just provide our CSA members with fresh, nutritious fruits & veggies, but to also help them make the most of what they receive. Sometimes, keeping up with the diverse selection of produce available each week can be a challenge – and that’s where our Cascading Kitchen steps in.
Our barn hosts a spacious kitchen, stocked with sinks & all of the tools necessary to help you prepare your produce before taking it home. When you wander through the barn to collect all of the produce for your weekly share, you can just step into the kitchen and get it prepped & ready to just pop into the fridge when you get home. There are salad spinners so that you can clean & spin your greens, cutting boards & knives for you to prep root veggies, and much more.
“Terrie, your in-house cook and recipe provider, is a magician with the vegetables you provided. I have found her an inspiration and have used many of her demonstrated recipes.”
CSA member Olga G.
Best of all, on Tuesdays and Fridays, our food coach – the warm and wonderful Terrie of Summer in a Jar – is cooking up some amazing food featuring items from your weekly share. She demonstrates a variety of cooking methods and has a plethora of helpful advice on ways to prepare and cook your produce – from cutting techniques, to preservation tips, to storage ideas, she has everything covered.
Terrie also provides new recipes each week to help you plan your weekly meals – her recipes build on each other, making use of leftovers from previous weeks.
She posts her recipes on her web site weekly, so even if you aren’t able to make it into the Cascading Kitchen while Terrie is there, you can plan your weekly meals out with help from her tips and recipes.
There’s even a play area adjacent to the Cascading Kitchen, so you can work on prepping your veggies or chat with Terrie while you keep an eye on your kids enjoying the toys & art supplies!
