May 2nd 

     Join Laguna Farm and plan on touring other farms as well.  This is a great day to bring out your friends and family to get to know your farm!

     We are looking for volunteers to help us during this event.  If you would like to spend a couple of hours on the farm, hit reply and we will look forward to working with you.

 

     First Thursday Tours!

Beginning May 7th you have entire farm tour season to come out and get to know your farm.  On the first Thursday of the month, Laguna Farm is hosting a farm tour at 2:00 for 50 minutes.


Add-Ons!
We hope to sell out of salad, bread, bananas, mushrooms, kale, produce boxes and juice boxes by the end of the week.  If you are finding we have run out of your favorite item, please consider pre-ordering it.  This way we will know how much to order or harvest and you will be guaranteed to get the goodies you seek!  Our farm-stand is first come, first served and we are no longer able to “hold” items for members unless they pre-order.

Dear Members,
     On Saturday, May 2nd, Laguna Farm will participate in Blossoms, Bees and Barnyard Babies. During this day, we will invite the public out to Laguna Farm for a farm tour and a juicing demonstration.  Several farms throughout Sonoma County are participating in this Farm Trails event.  Please consider attending!  All you need to do is “RSVP” at one link provided above.  The event is free of charge, only they use the RSVP method so they can send you the schedule, map and any other necessary information.     
     Blossoms, Bees and Barnyard Babies is a great time for “home-delivery” and “neighborhood pick-up” members to come and see the farm.  We will have our farm stand open (cash only) and have the area under the oak tree set up for a bring-your-own- picnik.  

Join us!

This week’s produce box lends well to a Macro Bowl.

There are several types of macro-bowls, but most have this simple formula in common:

20% Grains: 

Quinoa, brown rice, cous cous or bulgur wheat.

25% Vegetables lightly steam, or use raw: 

Carrot, green beans, broccoli, snap peas, cauliflower, avocado, mushrooms.

30% Greens, leave raw:

Spinach, lettuce, arugula, chard, basil, sprouts.

20% Beans: 

Edamame, chickpeas, adzuki beans, tofu 

5% Seaweed: 

Nori, wakame, kombu 

Lastly, dress with a Tahini Dressing: 1/4 cup tahini, 2 T. olive oil, 2 T. lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Combine ingredients 1-5 in a large bowl, drizzle with Tahini Dressing and enjoy! 


Juice Box Contents:  
Beets, Spinach, Valencia Oranges, Apples, Cucumbers, Fennel, Chard.

Apples, Cucumbers and Spinach go so well together in juicing.  This blend of 2 apples, one cucumber and 2 cups of spinach is energizing, sweet and fresh.  Drink over ice for a refreshing drink or add a finger of ginger and dash of cayenne to heat things up.  
So hey, I stumbled upon this website: The Earth Diet while looking for vegan desert ideas.  While it may be tempting to get lost in the “buy this and sign up for that” section of the website, I really recommend looking over her juice recipes.
