Dawson Local Harvest:  New Additions to This Week's Dawson harvest

Dawson Local Harvest for February 23rd

New Additions to This Week’s Dawson Harvest


Here’s a quick Update on what’s New this week. MY DAILY BREAD has added Blushing Peach Jam to their line of Jellies and Jams. This is a tasty blend of peaches and strawberries that’s quite nice on toast or with peanut butter. Meanwhile, LEILANI’S has added a new Vegetable to their cool-weather Produce line, the Purple-topped Root Turnip, a beautiful cooking Turnip with (what else?) a lavender-purple top half. It’s extremely nutritious, can be boiled. steamed, baked, and sliced for soups and salads. Next up, Leeks with their garlic-oniony flavor they’re fabulous for soups and stir-frys. Also back is the unusual purple-sheaf Green Onions, like a green onion with great color.

There’s really a lot available in the listings for This Week’s Market. If you take a good look around at some of the more unusual offerings you can find some wonderful gems. Take a chance and try something new!


REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for February 18th

Market News


We are so excited to see you this week and get you your fresh vegetables and other great local food items!

This time of year we know you understand variety is at it’s lowest. BUT we have a great quantity of these selected items, so you can really order away and stock up on so much green goodness!

Our vegetables are picked to order and super fresh, so of course they last a long while in the fridge. You should find you can order enough to get you almost through the two weeks until the next pick up.

There is a great selection of meats avaialable from Bear Creek and Wedge Oak Farm, as well as eggs and our favorite cheese source, The Bloomy Rind. Dozen Bakery bread freezes quite well if you want an extra loaf.

Our next delivery date after this Wednesday will be Wednesday, February 21st

We are really excited for the year ahead, and hope to continue to serve you in the best way possible! We are always open to feedback and questions. It helps us to be better at what we do, so we appreciate you letting us know what you love or what some concerns may be!

Thanks for all your support – we look forward to seeing you on Wednesday!

Greener Acres Farm:  How About This Weather?

So how is everyone weathering these strange weather patterns? One day it is freezing cold, the next it is in the 50’s and then it dumps wet, heavy snow. Please be safe out there and take care of yourself.

One of the best ways to take care of yourself is to eat a healthy diet, free of excessive chemicals and preservatives. And we are here to help you. All of our growers/producers use the most sustainable growing methods possible. The “Our Growers” tab will provide you with more information about each grower, and as always, feel free to contact us with any questions.

We are currently in the part of the year well there is very limited produce, however, the days are lengthening and green is on the way. In the meantime, we still carry a large selection of meats, eggs, dairy as well as natural sweeteners like honey and maple syrup. And for those with a sweet tooth, we also carry delicious baked goods.
