LOVE YOUR ROOTS

Happy Valentines Day!

_DSC0953.JPG

Even though it is winter and things aren't really growing, we still have seasonal veggies from right here in the Garden State!  Winter is for ROOTS, and there are O so many of them.  Some are very familiar to most of us, but others are uncommon and wonderful!  Here is the lowdown on these low growing wonders.  Click a photo to dig deeper.

As well as these we also have fresh organic ginger on hand at all times to add that much needed ZIP to your beverages.

Ginger

(Zingiber officinale Roscoe) is a member of the Zingiberaceae family of plants. It has been a part of healing strategies in Asia, India, Europe, and the Middle East for centuries for treatment of such disorders as arthritis, stomach upset, asthma, diabetes, and menstrual irregularities, to name a few. There is scientific support that ginger may alleviate the symptoms of nausea and vomiting following pregnancy, surgery, cancer therapy, or motion sickness and suggestive evidence that ginger reduces inflammation and pain. Cell culture studies show that ginger has antioxidant properties. However, it is not known whether ginger antioxidant constituents are bioavailable in humans once ingested and whether they can affect markers of oxidative stress in human in vivo. There are preliminary data that ginger has antimicrobial potential, although there is little evidence supporting ginger's practical usefulness in combating infections in humans. Based on evidence primarily from animal and in vitro studies, ginger may have beneficial effects toward cardiovascular disease through its multiple actions counteracting inflammation, hyperlipidemia, platelet aggregation, and hypertension

All of our seasonal drinks feature one or more of these wonderful and healthy roots, grab one today and show your body a little love for Valentines day!

Pressing

The easiest way for us to handle the pressing lately seems to be for one of us to stay super late (like past 1am) or go in super early (-5am)  and get it all done before everything opens.  It has been tough at times but we seem to be getting through it.  People are starting to recognize us, and we are starting to see a steady stream of repeat customers at the mall, which is always a little bit of a confidence booster.  This week our special ingredients include 🥝, squash, and romaine, so be sure to stop by!

From far to near we have It's Green this week with kiwi and our own cabbage, it's purple this week with red cabbage, just dandy, it's yellow with squash and pineapple, wake up, and green it out. 

Quick nutrition

We have been playing around for awhile with a variety of different health shots and have had a lot of success with our ginger based shots.  But it is hard not to include wheatgrass!

The benefits of wheatgrass shots are so numerous that it would take for ever to list so if you are interested here is a great article all about it: https://draxe.com/discover-amazing-wheat-grass/ 

 

Basically the closer you can get to the plant form the better, so short of eating straight wheatgrass, fresh juice is it! 

 

Happy juicing

Mall life

Some people are talking to basically living in the Mall for the holidays better then others...

Things are starting to get busy though so hopefully it's all worth it! 

 If we end up having a good season we have big plans for expanding next year to make the juices more readily available to anyone who wants it.  

 

In the meantime we have decided to give up on naming all the seasonal and from now on will run them all under the same "It's" names initially, if people really love them the will be given a name and the recipe saved, so be sure to give us your opinions!

Farm Girl

Fall is here (Where did the summer go!?)  We are just beginning to put the farm to bed.  A process that will take us most of the rest of the year.  Fields have to be plowed under, cover crops sown, trays and stakes washed, tractors repaired and painted, greenhouses cleaned, chicken relocated, dogs brought home, trash hauled away, the list goes on.  Moments are getting longer her as the buzz of the growing season winds down finally.  Soon we will be able to breath and look back on what an amazing year it was, but for now, there is still work to do.

Settling In

Our first weekend at the Stockton market was awesome!  We had a great response from the customers many of which are VERY excited we are there!  We need to polish up on a few things but we are in it for the long haul.

Farm Dogs

No farm is truly complete without trusty farm dogs.  From left to right we have Dora and Roxy sitting guard over our littlest farmer.

Cheery Cherrys

Around here Cherry Tomatoes are pretty popular.  Certain small people are fairly fond of them.  Come down to any of our Farmers Market stands to pick some up!

Technical Difficulties...

You wouldn't think it but the most technically difficult thing for us to cold press with our machine is actually watermelon.  It is just so juicy and difficult to seive for the pressing bags that occationally it just shoots out like a guizer.  This photo is what results when the bag is overloaded, just a day in the life of cold pressing at Marchese Farm.
