  • Coffee! In my CSA? Yes, Please.

    Great News! We have teamed up with Coffee Ethic to create a special Urban Roots CSA blend. This lovely coffee can be waiting for you with your veggies every Tuesday, so you never have to worry about going without that precious warm cup in the mornings. 'Living Matter' is a full bodied, harmonious mix with hints of cocoa and stone fruit.  CSA members get a special price of 12.00/week for a 12oz. bag, when you sign up and include coffee as an add on. For those of you that drink more than that, we gave you the option for more than one bag...

  • Holiday Gift ideas?

    Here is a gift that Keeps On Giving!

    Have you considered giving a CSA share to a loved one? Or perhaps a gift certificate to their local farm?  

    Well, here's the scoop. You can purchase a Urban Roots Farm CSA for your loved ones, and we will throw in a basket of veggies (simular to this one) with a certificate of their summer share. Here is the CSA information.

    OR we are offering Gift Certificates in the amount of your choice and we will be happy to make you a basket of fresh veggies for an additional $10.00, so you can present their gift card with some delisious winter edibles. Just email us here, with your gift card amount, date for pick up and if you want a veggie basket. 

    Simple. Healthy. Local.

  • Weekly winter pick-up

    Winter CSA pick-up: February 25, 2014.

    Turnips: Knock, knock. Who’s there? Turnip. Turnip who? Turnip the oven and roast me, in large wedges, for a sweet winter treat. Also stew my greens, because they’re great!

    Peashoots: Nothing cuter than a peashoot in February. Hardly anything tastier either. Snack on these springy tendrils, or add them to salads or sandwiches for a clean, snappy flavor. Also, they’re cute. 

    Head Lettuce: (half shares only) Oh, friends, lettuce enjoy this color and flavor, like the ladybugs who grow and love alongside it! For they know what’s up. This week’s harvest is beautiful, healthy fare for your family. 

    Spinach (half shares only): Get a load of these large, hearty leaves! Here is the vegetable that, lovingly tended, not just survives the long winter, but scoffs at it. Ha! Winter! Is that all you’ve got? Just look at my brilliant chlorophyll. No bugs can touch me now!

    Kale: Kevin just eats this straight off the plant, and you can do that, too, but also you could put today’s kale in a hearty soup; or stew it with your turnip greens; or oil, season, and bake it in a single layer at 350 for 9 minutes for a crisp kale chip snack that our kids love to make and love to eat.

    Chard (full only): Grown in the warm, near-temperate climate of our greenhouse, this tender chard would be great on bruschetta, or, again, stewed along with those turnip greens. Here’s a tip for cooking greens: add a little acid at the end of cooking—either a squirt of lemon juice or a little apple cider vinegar. Once you’ve tried the bright flavors this brings out of the vegetable, it’s doubtful you’ll want to eat it any other way.
