All Smiles Davis Miskell.jpeg

Featured Farm

Miskell's Premium Organics, Charlotte, VT

David Miskell specializes in certified organic greens in a small, focused farm in Charlotte, Vermont. The greenhouses at his farm are one of our main sources of fresh leafy greens during the "shoulder seasons" - aka late fall, winter, and early spring, when it's just not possible to grow in Vermont's dark, snowy fields. David Miskell is a long-established farmer, who started out at Shelburne Farms, and first started growing heirloom tomatoes when his greenhouses were brand new. Some days, you can also find Bobby Young, Intervale Food Hub Operations Manager, working at Miskell's, too! 

This week, you'll find crisp green bok choi in your basket from Miskell's Premium Organics. Try a stiry fry, grain bowl, or nice warm soup!

Recipes and Cooking Tips

Eat This First: Bok Choi will last must longer in the fridge if properly stored! Be sure to not wash it until immediately before consuming and store in a plastic bag or tupperware container to get the maximum shelf life out of it.

Mushrooms are great to use in stir-fries, soups, or simply sauteed. Enjoy these within 7-10 days, while they're still fresh!

Storage: We recommend storing everything this week in the refrigerator - including your squash - to prevent rotting.
