Greens for Sale to Celebrate March 17th!

Posted by Kevin and Brittany Overshiner :: Monday, March 16 :: 11:16am

11am - 6pm, March 17th, extra on sale 11am - 6pm March 18th!  

Anyone out there craving fresh greens? There nothing like the crunchy sweetness of a local salad after a long New England winter. We’ve got just what you need.  

Spinach and Claytonia on Sale at Medway Community Farm!

Also: eggs, honey, maple syrup, greeting cards and green t-shirts!  

Claytonia is the PERFECT green to eat on St Patrick's Day (balance out that heavy, boiled dinner!) Claytonia grows wild in California. It’s tolerance for cold conditions make it available outside all winter long in their warmer climate. During the gold rush miners used to eat Claytonia to stave off dysentery and scurvy – it’s got loads of vitamin C! – giving it the nick-name “Miners Lettuce”.  

What could make a better salad ingredient on a holiday themed with green and gold than Miners Lettuce?   Greens will be harvested and stored in bags in coolers in the front entryway of the Farm Community Center – use the honor system!

Spinach is $3 for a ½ lb bag and Claytonia is $4 for a 5oz. bag.

We accept cash or check.   As always, be careful pulling in and out of the farm driveway.  

We need to clear out these over-wintered crops to make room for plantings in our hoop-house for the Spring Share!  

Enjoy! Your Farmers, Kevin and Brittany
