Grin from Ear to Ear

Friday, July 20th, 2012

You’ll grin from ear to ear while enjoying our marvelous sweet corn, picked fresh daily! It’s sweet, tender, and oh-so-delicious! We got about 3″ of much-needed rain here in Hart over the past few days, which will really help the later corn develop to maximum potential! Sweet corn and pumpkins are two of the only crops that we do not have trickle irrigation on, so the rain was essential for us.

Tart cherries are tasty!

Get your local black sweet cherries now!

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Free samples of our own black sweet cherries at our market in Hart, so you can try before you buy! This year’s season will be as short as it’s ever been for us–and the earliest ever, too. Ordinarily, we would hope to begin our sweet cherry harvest by July 4th. This year, we expect to have harvested all of the cherries (tarts, too) on our farm by the end of June.

The rain we got yesterday was great for the sweet corn, & it looks as though our black golds (black sweet cherries) made it through without cracking. (If sweet cherries get rained on, they absorb the moisture through the skin. If there is too much moisture, they swell up too quickly and the skin cracks open.)

“No Socks” Salad (So good, & so good for you, it’ll knock your socks off!)

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Put 2 c. cooked, chilled, diced chicken in large bowl.  Sprinkle on 1/2 tsp. lemon pepper & stir well.  Add 2 c. cooked & chilled whole wheat pasta and 3 c. cooked tender-crisp, chilled & diced Oceana County asparagus.  Sprinkle on 1/4 tsp. salt & stir gently to mix.  Add one Honeycrisp apple (diced with skin on ), 8 oz. Country Dairy Mild Cheddar Cheese cut into small cubes, and 1/4 c. oven-roasted sliced & salted almonds; stir gently to mix.  Pour on 1/2 c. (or more, if you like it zippier) Vidalia(R) Onion Honey Mustard Salad Dressing (available at Rennhack Orchards Market) & mix well.  Keep chilled until serving time.  Makes 8 main-dish servings.

I served up this original recipe at the National Asparagus Festival Food Show in Hart on June 11.  It was fun to see so many people there!

An apple a day. . .

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

We have harvested the apples on our farm in Hart, and are keeping many varieties in our cooler to sell at the market until Christmas!  We can’t predict exactly when a certain variety will sell out, but you can ask at the market for a general idea, so you can stock up.  We have a good supply of SweeTango(R) for the next few weeks.  They are amazing to eat fresh, add crunch & flavor to green salads or chicken pasta salad, and they make delicious pies, holding a nice slice.  If you haven’t tried this apple yet, what are you waiting for?  Stop in the market for a free sample!  Our fresh fruit sample shelf is just inside the front doors, to the left. 

 (Volunteers fixing up the Andre Bosse Center in Hart are enjoying SweeTango(R) apples today!  Thanks for helping!)
