We’re Open for Two Days a Week!

This is what so many of your have been waiting for, we’re now open on Wednesdays. Weekends can be crazy and busy for everyone, but now you can still squeeze in some time in the middle of the week to grab your groceries or restock your strawberry supply since Saturday. We all know how fast those disappear.

Don’t forget to grab some corn and fresh tomatoes for your Independence Day BBQ’s.

We hope you’ll come by with the family and stock up on some new items and old favorites. We’re open weekly Saturday’s 9am-5pm and Wednesdays 1pm-6pm.

See you this week!

Locally yours,
Couple Berry Farms

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.

Two-Ingredient-Summer-Sorbet | Vista’s Natural Farm Stand

Two Ingredient Summer Sorbet

Organic Raspberries from Couple Berry Farms Local Farm Stand near Vista, CA

 

Welcome, Summer! Summer is a great time at Couple Berry Farms, because it means there are a lot of new crops joining the stand. Green beans, zucchini, and my favorite… raspberries!

Organic Strawberries from Couple Berry Farms Local Farm Stand near Vista, CA

This sorbet is a perfect treat to whip up on a warm summer day, and seriously only has two ingredients, raspberries and bananas!

Organic Strawberries from Couple Berry Farms Local Farm Stand near Vista, CA

 

Ingredients

1-(or 1 1/2 cups) Box of Couple Berry Farms Raspberries,  frozen

1- Ripe Banana

Makes 2-3 servings

 

Stick your box of raspberries in the freezer over night, or few a few hours, until it’s fully frozen.

Place in food processor with one ripe banana, the riper, the better. A greener banana will not have the best flavor. Blend in food processor or blender until smooth. Scoop, and enjoy!

It’s so easy to make more servings, just remember, one banana per box of raspberries 🙂

How to make strawberry salsa recipe by couple berry farms farmstand in vista CA

Strawberry Salsa

1.5 lbs Strawberries
3 Spring Onions
3 Tbs Lime Juice
1 Large Jalapeño (We had home-canned jalapeños on hand)

We used our salsa maker, but you can have similar results by chopping the ingredients finely, and combining in a large bowl.

Tasty with chips or as a garnish for lamb, chicken, or egg omelet.
