    Featured Producer: Mt. Mansfield Creamery, Morrisville, VT

    Mt. Mansfield Creamery is located in the heart of Morrisville, in the old United Farmers Creamery building. To bring new life into the old creamery, they renovated the building for their business and built their own cheese cave in the basement! They milk their own Holstein & Brown Swiss cows, which are on rotational grazing in the summer months and fed grain and hay during the winter. Mt. Mansfield Creamery uses the milk to produce a number of raw milk cheeses. Cheeses are made in small batches, and aged a minimum 60 days in their cheese cave. 

    Omnivore and Localvore packages include their Sugar Slalom cheese this week, named after the classic Stowe spring skiing race, and custom made for the sugaring season! Aged 3 months, this high moisture, complex cheese has a sweetness to the finish. The rind is washed with Silloway Maple sugar and Green Mountain Distillers Organic Maple Liqueur. Yum!

    Featured Farm: Miskell's Premium Organics, Charlotte, VT

    Miskell's Premium Organics is a one-half-acre organic greenhouse farm in Charlotte, owned and operated by David and Susan Miskell. David and Susan began farming in 1982 at Shelburne Farms, where they specialized in wholesale organic specialty vegetables. Later, they moved to Charlotte, where they constructed a large greenhouse and continued to develop their farm. After growing tomatoes for several years, Miskell's Premium Organics now focuses on early and late season kale, chard, basil, lettuce and bok choi. However, there are a few surprises growing there too - like a row of peach trees! We always welcome David's fresh leafy greens as a sign of Spring. Enjoy!

              Featured Producer: Starbird Fish

              “Know your fisherman” is the motto of Starbird Fish. Owned and operated by Tony Naples, who spends part of the year fishing off the coast of Alaska. Starbird Fish is sourced from one of the world’s most sustainable wild fisheries in the Aleutian Islands. Anthony and his crew work long hours in the summer months when wild Alaskan salmon migrate up and down the coast to return to their original spawning grounds. The salmon is caught, immediately chilled, and is processed and frozen within 24 hours to maximize freshness. 

              To see the results of the successful management of this precious resource is one of the most inspiring things I have ever taken part in; it’s a truly amazing experience, year after year, and I’m stoked to be bringing it home to share with you in the form of delicious and nutritious wild salmon!" - Captain Tony

              Eat This First: Microgreens and Turnips

              • Microgreens are tiny baby greens, grown in soil and cut after just a few weeks of growth. They're a nutritional powerhouse, and should be eaten ASAP for the best quality and flavor! Add them to sandwiches, top salads, soup, scrambles, omelettes, or tacos.
              • Scarlet turnips add a nice burst of color to a slaw, or to a jar of pickled vegetables.

                Eat This First: Mushrooms, Apple Cider, and Gold Beets.

                • Mushrooms will have the best flavor when eaten fresh. We love pairing them with eggs for breakfast - be sure to check out our new mushroom and egg toast recipe! 
                • Apple Cider is also best when used promptly - unless you like that fizzy, fermented taste that happens naturally over time. To save for later, store in your freezer.
                • Gold beets are an exciting addition this week! They have a beautiful color. If you are coming from our Fall/Winter season, they'll look amazing paired with red beets in a beet gratin or, steamed, or sliced for a salad.
