Locally Made Fruit Leather Variety Pack

Posted on by Wholesale@TapRoot Farms

Locally made with Annapolis Valley fruit and organic cane sugar, we now have Fruit Leather from The Humble Burdock Farm available to our members! What started out as a hobby and search for healthy snacking options has turned into a customer favourite for Amanda and her team at The Humble Burdock in Steam Mill, Nova Scotia. Each variety pack comes with a 1.75 oz package of the following flavours;

Berry Blend (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry) Blueberry Lemon (Lemon rind & lemon juice) Strawberry Lemon (Lemon rind & Lemon juice) Raspberry

Besides being locally made and delicious, fruit leather is also a very convenient snack with a long (6 month) shelf life, and doesn't require refrigeration until the hot summer weather rolls in. Due to her busy schedule on the farm, Amanda doesn't produce fruit leather from May-November so we'll have for as long as we can but once she's out, you'll have to wait until November! Fair warning. :)



Red Cabbage- Trimmed & Ready to Enjoy

Posted on by Wholesale@TapRoot Farms

We've added red cabbage (non-organic) to our list of extra goodies available, and we've even taken care of the trimming for you! There are about a bazillion uses for red cabbage, but I (Kim) thought I'd send you all my favourite.

Red Cabbage Rolls. Yes, that's right, cabbage rolls aren't just for the familiar green variety. Red cabbage rolls are equally delicious, and have the added bonus of adding a blaze of colour, bright enough to shake off any mid-winter blues. **To help keep the colour rich and vibrant, add a splash of vinegar to the water when you boil it. The recipe below is using the the standard green cabbage, but I strongly encourage you to give the red a try. Trust me, you will not regret it.

Happy cooking all!

Delivery Update

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

Good Day Members,

We hope you have dug out from our first Nova Scotia Blizzard of 2016.

The roads are looking better by the hour so we are going to go ahead and deliveries today.

Please keep an eye on facebook or the blog for updates of time delays or changes at the different locations - this is very possible because we are leaving late from the farm.

Many thanks for your support and patience as we get you your food from the farm this week.

Patricia

Payment Options ~ 2016

Posted on by Patricia Bishop

All accounts will have one annual invoice. There is one annual cost for your CSA share. It is based on an assumed or approximate weekly amount, but the price is an annual price - one invoice. 

You are invited to pay this invoice in full with money order, email transfer, cash or cheque prior to the start of the season on April 4th 2016. With costs on the farm at their highest in the spring and summer, our hope and preference is that you will pay for your CSA membership as soon as possible. 

Payments can be emailed to info@taprootfarms.ca or mailed to:

TapRoot Farms
1736 Church St.
Port Williams, NS
B0P 1T0

If paying in full does not work for you, you are welcome to pay in monthly installments. To pay monthly, simply divide your total amount owing by 9 (9 months of shares, 9 payments). Please let our bookkeeper know that you will be making monthly payments so she can make a note on your account.
