Group B-  Administrator’s Special Box contains 5# of our Satina potatoes and a Jumbo Sierra Blanca white onion (one of the best!).  We have added 1# Broccoli, 2 Cucumbers and a Yellow Sweet Bell Pepper, Organic Girl 50/50 Salad Mix, 3 Heirloom Oranges (=2#) and some organic Ginger Root, and 2 Honey Bear Acorn Squash with specific directions on how to cook them for the most enjoyment and nutrition….we’re all about nutrition and health and feeling good!-$25

Buyer’s Group- Group B- January 11th, 2018– HEIRLOOM ORANGES now available for sale!


Administrator’s Special has been ordered! And What Produce at Buyer’s Group page has been updated–check it out!

ADM SPECIAL:  Heirloom Oranges (3ct), 5# Satina or Yukon Gem Potatoes, Colossal/Jumbo Sierra Blanca White Onion, Broccoli, 2 Cucumbers and a Yellow Sweet Bell Pepper, Organic Girl 50/50 Salad Mix (5 oz), 2 Honey Bear Acorn Squashes, and Ginger Root.– $25


Highlight in today’s post is the Heirloom Oranges:  Super good!  I only order oranges when the Heirlooms are in stock.  My experience with oranges has been dismal, but part of that is growing up in Southern California where I walked by the orange groves on my way to school, and we ate them fresh!  (I admit I’m an orange snob!) They were juicy, sweet, and easy to peel, though the skin was not as thick as the current day Navels.  I find most the hybrid oranges horrid, you don’t know what you are getting until you get them home, and even in a 5# bag the quality is inconsistent!  They can be pithy, dry, or sour and bland, or just plan tough…

When the Heirlooms appeared on the Spokane list I looked them up and was thrilled!  These are the oranges from which the current day varieties come!  There are only a few orchards still growing the Heirlooms–they do not yield as heavy as the hybrids, and with the softer skin do not store as long in the warehouse.

Heirloom Oranges are available on Thursday’s for $1.50/#.  If you would like to build up your Vitamin C reserve (good idea with cold and flu season upon us!), then order a box ($50) or a Half Box ($27.50).  If you order a box you can chill some in the fridge, juice them from the box (not chilled), and snack ALL DAY!  The juice is unequal to anything you are going to get in the store; even the best juice looses its sweetness the longer it sits– I will have a couple of boxes for sale this week, or you can pre-order for the next week.  Contact me by Text 431-1219, email, or call.

For Good Health!  The Farmer’s Wife
