Weekly Newsletter: Dec 3, 2013

Brrrr!

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. We apologize for the delay in our newsletter. However, the farmers experienced a freeze on Wednesday night and its often a waiting game to see what the damage is like on the farm and what will be available for harvesting. Fortunately, our farmers did not experience too much damage but the weather has definitely slowed down some production. 

Holiday Schedule

The Veggie Bin and our Farmers will be taking the week of Christmas off this year. We usually take off the first week off in January, but because the holiday falls on a Wednesday we do not have enough time to prepare and deliver. If you have any questions, please let us know.

Happy Cooking

Making Substitutions!

Have no fear! If you do not like one of our selected items in your regular sized organic or local bin you have the choice to remove it and double another item that’s already in the bin or a make a substitution. And if you just have too many veggies, the great news is you can select a French Pantry Baguette as one of our substitution items! Find step by step instructions in our blog post.

Perfect for the Holiday Feast! 

We are NUTS about Brown’s Farm Pecans! No matter how you say it, “Puh-cahn” or “Pee-can,” your body will say, “thank you” for including them in your diet. Ranked highest among nuts for antioxidants and naturally low in saturated fat, our organic pecans are good for you! With holidays just around the corner, now is the time to add pecans to your bin.

Fresh, fresh, fresh Locally Grown Grits! The corn grits grown and milled by Teagan farms are made from flint corn which is known for a grittier, more granular texture. In Italy, flint has been the choice polenta corn since the 16th century! Polenta is simple to make, low in fat and calories and nutritious! $6.25/bag. Log into your Veggie Bin Account and add grits for your next order!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Returning your bin clean and undamaged means that we can use it again and again. This keeps costs down, minimizes landfill waste and keeps your carbon footprint smaller. Bins that aren’t returned will incur a replacement fee, so be sure to put it out for pickup!
