WARMER WEATHER MEANS MAKING MORE BIOCHAR

This week, we had Gary Gilmore from the PA- DCNR come back to the farm to help us make even more biochar!  You may remember a few months ago, we told you that making charcoal for agricultural use (aka “biochar’) is an excellent way to use our brush piles and it provides long term benefits when added to the soil, and even more potential benefits when used with our livestock. By amping this process up we are able to really connect back with our soil and keeping adding to its nutrient level.

CFF Recipe of the Week

taco Topped tomatoes

 

Ingredients:

  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2/3 c. shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 c. shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 c. sour cream

 

Directions:

In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until tender. Add ground beef and taco seasoning, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon or fork. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until the beef is no longer pink. Drain fat and set aside.

Flip tomatoes so they are stem-side down. Cut the tomatoes into six wedges, being careful to not cut completely through the tomato. Carefully spread open the wedges.

Divide taco meat evenly among the tomatoes, then top each with cheese, lettuce, and sour cream.

 

 

CFF Sweatshirts are still AVAILABLE!

A quick change in the temperature doesn’t mean Spring is right around the corner, hoodies are still a must! What better way to stay warm then in a CFF sweatshirt.  Sizes range from Small to X-Large. Sweatshirts are $35.00 and we accept cash, check, or credit card. Merchandise can be purchased directly from the farm by contacting Stephanie at stephanie@carversvillefarm.org.

Remember, 100% of the proceeds go to feed the needy in our own backyards.

By partnering with several Bucks County food pantries, Broad Street Ministry, Coalition Against Hunger, Cathedral Kitchen and Face to Face Germantown, people throughout the Philadelphia area are benefiting from our nutritious harvest.
