2014 Winter Reopening Update

Hey lovely people!

 

We just wanted to give everyone an update on where we stand on a reopening date. January, and now February, have been a busy, busy time here at Couple Berry Farms. Farmer Butch has been tilling, planning, and replanting for the upcoming season. We’ve just received our latest addition of strawberry starters, 3,000 to be exact! This new variety will be able to withstand the hot summer and fall days.

We also had a colorful visitor this week! You can see more photos here.

We also have some very exciting news. We’re making the final preparations for installing a well! This is an incredible opportunity for the farm, as it will provide us with a higher quantity AND quality of water. We’re so happy to begin using fresh water without added chemicals and fluoride from the city water, as we’ve noticed a big difference in the growth and health of our trees since its addition to our water source. We also are going to be able to plant and support even MORE produce to keep up with our amazing customers.
We will be opening March 8th!!

Unfortunately, in order to install the well and prepare the drilling area, we’ve had to spend quite a bit of our time relocating our raspberry patch, so our reopening date has been moved back by about three weeks. We will continue to keep you all updated on our progress, and have photos of the new well (drilling begins next week!).

 

 

Thank you for your support. We can’t wait to see you all again soon.

 

Love,

Couple Berry Farms

Gluten-Free Goat Cheese Arugula Pizza

Arugula from couple berry farms stand in vista caWhen you eat with the seasons, sometimes you end up with fresh ingredients, with no idea how to cook with them! This recipe is very versatile, depending on what you have on hand, and a great way to use up that flavorful arugula! Coming from a Gluten-Free home, I’ve chosen to use a coconut flour pizza crust as my base from Caveman Strong but you can use another kind of crust if you’d prefer.fresh organic arugula recipe

 

Ingredients:

6 Tbs pesto sauce

1 unbaked pizza crust

8 oz goat cheese

1/2 large onion

1/2 red bell pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

6-10 cherry tomatoes

2 tsp olive oil

1 cup fresh arugula

Prepare your crust according to the recipe’s instructions. (For a prepackaged crust, preheat the oven based on package instructions, and prepare next step on unbaked crust).
