Farm Bill Update 

A secret Farm Bill committee was formed a few days ago to hash out the bill behind closed doors without public input. As of this writing, no agreement has been reached. It's more important than ever to contact Sen. Debbie Stabenow, who is on this committee, to tell her you want her to protect rural, small, organic farms. Please call her at (202) 224-4822 to voice your concerns. For more information on this issue go to the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition website.

Recipe of the Week

This is a simple yet delicious way to whet everyone's appetite and feed them nutritious greens at the same time.

Braised Kale Crostini


12 ½ - inch thick baguette bread slices
5 garlic cloves, 1  halved and 4 minced
1 pound kale, stems removed, chopped
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 cups chicken or veggie broth
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Romano or Parmesan cheese, shaved

Heat oven to 375. Brush bread with 2 tablespoons oil, arrange on a baking sheet, and bake for 6 minutes. Rub toast with halved garlic. Heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat in a large pot. Add garlic and pepper flakes and stir for a few seconds. Add kale and broth, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook for 15 minutes or until kale is tender. Season with salt and pepper. Drain in a colander and top toasts with kale. Top each slice with some cheese shavings. Makes 12.

Celebrate the Holidays with Local Produce

The produce department has plenty of local winter squash - kabocha, butternut, acorn, spaghetti, buttercup - and fresh local apples for baking, cooking, and eating. Help us support our farmers.
