Mother's Day is Sunday!

Brunch is the traditional Mother's Day meal (in my version of reality). Show your favorite mum a little love by making a delicious homemade brunch using all local ingredients! Here are a couple of menu ideas:

1. Farm-fresh eggs, asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, bacon, sausage or ham and cheeeeeese. Mmmmm.

You can make a scramble or a fried version, and look how pretty! Just cook up your meat, add some veggies to saute briefly, then add eggs and cheese and cover to cook through Garnish with fresh herbs or shoots and serve with salad.



2. Salmon and a nice salad made with a delicious marinade and dressing made with our NEW MO Wild Edibles Mushroom Miso.

3. Yogurt Parfait with Windcrest Dairy Yogurt, Companion Granola, Almond Butter, Honey and Applesauce or Peaches (or really raise the bar with a layer of Bittersweet Chocolate's Salted Caramel Chocolate Sauce).

Give her a real treat and buy her a one- or two-week share of food that she can pick up from Fair Shares, ($55 full or $35 mini).

We can also suggest some other treats, like Kakao or Patric Chocolates, a Geisert smoked ham, pretzel croissants, a smoked chicken, frozen pizzas, pounds of bacon, a box of granola or a bag of dates.

Tip: How to Prep Cooking Greens

Prepping your greens can seem like a chore if you don't have a good system. Try this method for kale, collards, Swiss chard, spinach (if you're afraid of the stems), etc. and you'll find that it's easy eating greens! We even have a great little video demonstration.Read more


Fair Shares has created a new level of sales opportunities for area growers beyond restaurants and farmers markets. They have simplified for us the most difficult part of farming: marketing. Selling to Fair Shares has enabled us to sell larger quantities of produce with great ease. Not only is the ordering process simple but we can combine our deliveries with other farms in our area. Their commitment to supporting small local farms is unparalleled in the St Louis area, and we love them for it!
