Hummus – a special treat for you this week. This is made by my friends Jake and Rana Olson of Hometown Hummus here in Mora. Jake grew up in Mora, then moved to Turkey where he met is wife Rana. Just last year, the family has returned to Mora, and I am so grateful for that. Rana is an amazing cook and we have been fortunate to have her show us a few of her Turkish cooking techniques, especially using eggplant. But she also makes this absolutely delicious hummus and now I have the chance to share it with you all. See the flyer in your box for the details about how it is made and how you can get more. St. Cloud and North Branch peeps, I can coordinate this for you too, just let me know. This summer I’ve been enjoying raw veggies from our garden, sliced up dipped in hummus. Can’t beat it.
Our WWOOFers got the chance to visit the Kanabec County Fair, and get their picture taken with the largest Dala Horse in North America. They can now check that off on their bucket list.
Hi CSA members
Our Organic Certification agency, MOSA (Midwest Organic Services Association) has updated their logo. I like it. It’s colorful, earthy, whimsical, and professional. Plus, I think it looks really good with our updated brand look too. Nice job, MOSA.
On Wednesday July 10, we welcomed a bus full of 21 seniors who came up from the cities to visit our farm. Sapsucker Farms was one of the stops on their “Day in the Country” tour of East Central Minnesota, organized by St. Paul Community Education.
About half of the individuals grew up on a farm, so they really appreciated what we are doing on our farm. Our small, diverse, and back-to-the-basics way of farming is very much like the small family farms they are familiar with. It was an enjoyable day for all.
Broccoli – the broccoli crop is looking good. [SLAP – got one!] But one thing you need to know about broccoli, is that each plant has it’s own timing on when the head is ready. Then in just a matter of days, the beautiful head of broccoli will turn into a beautiful head of flowers. It would be really convenient if all of the plants were ready at the same time, then stay that way for about a week. But that’s not the way it works. So, I’ll be cutting the broccoli heads as they are ready, so there will be small quantities coming your way as it is ready.
