February 2019, Week 3
On February 21, Jed will be hosting a discussion about raw milk, the process of producing clean milk, and the risks and benefits associated with consuming raw milk. He'll talk about how Redmond Farms produces its locally enjoyed products. Then, if you haven't gotten enough dairy yet (because really, can you ever have too much?), we're hosting LeRoy on February 28 for a class on making your own butter and cheese. The taste of fresh homemade cheese and butter truly can't be matched, and the process is surprisingly straightforward. Registration for this class even includes samples, so you'll enjoy a little example that you can recreate at home.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We want to make sure that our Simple Share members get every opportunity to enjoy the farm to the fullest. Starting this year we are offering our Simple Share members 20% all of our carefully planned workshops. Make sure to talk to us to receive your discount code on future workshops when they become available.

Spinach is a cool-season crop and belongs to the Goosefoot family along with swiss chard and beets. Spinach is low in calories, and is a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and is rich in minerals, especially iron.
In a serving bowl, drizzle the arugula with the oil, squeeze in the lemon juice, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss until well mixed and taste for seasoning. Shave thin pieces of Parmigiano, or another cheese, over the top.
We are so excited that we were able to get Oro Blanco's this year. They are one of Farmer Luke's most favorite fruit and we think you are going to love it as well. The secret that we want to share with you is how to eat an Oro Blanco. You can always cut it open and eat it like a grapefruit but the membrane is really sour and the sweet flesh is hidden inside. Watch this video that Farmer Luke made to teach you how to eat it.
