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

Spaghetti Squash is delicious alternative to pasta. It hits the spot for those evening when you need to make a simple, comfort food meal, is low carb, and full of vitamin C. Enjoy this simple recipe from Couple Berry Farms.

Ingredients:

1 Spaghetti Squash

Salt and pepper to taste

Spaghetti sauce of choice.

Spaghetti Squash Recipe from Couple Berry Farms

Preheat your oven to 350. Cut your spaghetti squash in half, lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Place in large baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes.

Take out of the oven and let cool a bit so you can handle it. Use a fork and scrape down in the direction of the squash’s string pattern. If you do it the other direction, you may possibly mash the strings, and it won’t be very spaghetti-esque.

Top with butter and salt, Parmesan cheese, or your favorite spaghetti sauce, and enjoy!

Parsley and Cashew Pesto Salad Recipe | Vista’s Natural Food Stand

 

Parsley and Cashew Pesto Salad Recipe from Couple Berry Farms

We’ve got some pesto fans in our family, and have enjoyed finding different combinations to make a nice variety in our meals. If my kids will eat a salad because of a fresh pesto, who am I to stop them? This is a fun twist on traditional pesto, using parsley and cashews for a creamy, tasty pesto.

 Parsley and Cashew Pesto Salad Recipe from Couple Berry Farms

Pesto Ingredients:

1 Bunch of Italian Parsley (about two cups)

1/2 cup Cashews, unsalted

1/2 cup Kerrygold Cheese

1 Large or 2 Small Garlic Cloves

1/2 cup Olive Oil (Depending on preference, you can can use 2/3 to make it more of a sauce-consistency)

Salt to taste

 

Other Ingredients:

Baby Spinach

Handful of Grape Tomatoes

 

Optional:

Chicken

 Parsley and Cashew Pesto Salad Recipe from Couple Berry Farms

Place dry pesto ingredients in food processor (all except oil) and blend for about 30 seconds. Parsley and Cashew Pesto Salad Recipe from Couple Berry Farms

Add olive oil. We prefer thicker pesto, but you can add a bit more to make it more sauce-like. Add salt to taste.

Add a dollop of finished pesto to a bowl of baby spinach greens, and top with your favorite salad toppings.
