Stock up before the rain

We’re open today- Saturday, and we’d love to see you!

Did you know this is the first year that we’ve stayed open year-round?? Thank you so much for your support! It’s because of our great customers that we were able to make that happen! We’ve got even greater things in store for this upcoming year. Did you know we’re about to install our very first bee box? Yep!!

We’ve got a great variety of fruits and veggies… in fact, it would be a perfect weekend for some homemade chicken soup!

Check out an easy-peasy recipe here: http://coupleberryfarms.com/nourishing-chicken-soup-with-fresh-herbs-vistas-natural-farm-stand/

Veggie Highlight

Collard greens

High in Vitamin A, Potassium, and surprisingly have over one gram of protein in each chopped cup!

Fall 2013 Schedule Changes and CSA Information | Vista’s Natural Farm Stand

Fall at Couple Berry Farms
We are sad but excited to announce that last week was our last Wednesday to be open for the season. Sad, because we know a lot of our customers look forward to stopping in and getting fresh veggies in the middle of the week. Excited, because it’s Fall and we have been busy getting our fall and winter crops in the ground.
Hope to see you all on Saturdays!
Keep your eyes open for our CSA boxes. We will be announcing new availability soon!
Thanks,
Farmer Butch

Sauteed Summer Herb and Veggie Side Dish | Vista Natural Farm Stand

This week’s recipe is based on some summer favorites, available right here, at Couple Berry Farms.

There’s nothing quite like the combo of summer veggies and fresh herbs, and this dish complements nearly every main dish!

Summer Side Dish from Couple Berry Farms natural farm stand near vista

Ingredients:

1 Large onion, chopped

1 Large handful of Couple Berry Farms green beans, halved

1 Garlic clove, minced

1/2 Bunch of Couple Berry Farms thyme (remove leaves from stems)

2 small (or one large) Couple Berry Farm zucchini, chopped

1-2 Tbs your choice of oil (I used bacon grease, but you can use coconut oil or olive oil)

Salt and Pepper to taste

Optional:

1/4 cup Kerrygold Dubliner cheese, shredded

This recipe is a quick- moving one, so make sure to have your veggies chopped and prepped before you start cooking 🙂

Heat up a large pan to medium/high and place oil inside inside. Once hot, toss in your chopped onions and green beans.

When onions just begin to turn brown and caramelize, put in zucchini, thyme, minced garlic. Be sure to stir well, and remove from heat once zucchini begins to brown. If overcooked, the zucchini will become very soft. After removing from heat, you can sprinkle some high quality shredded cheese on top and mix it in to up the yum-factor.
