Information and Applications Available March 1.

UPCOMING EVENTS

• CSA Farm Share Sign-Ups March
• 9th Annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale   Saturday, May 8th
• Farm Stand Hours Resume (weather permitting) End of May

Visit the Farm Stand for truly local veggies – grown right here in the famous Black Dirt Region of Orange County, NY. The first time our produce leaves the farm is when YOU take it home!

At the Farm Stand, Please Wear Face Covering and maintain 6 feet of distance between you and others when possible. Hand Sanitizer available at the entrance. Thank You!

First, I want to thank you all SO MUCH for being a part of our Mother's Day Plant Sale & Market.

There were THREE little tykes wearing Bialas Farm onesies and I'm so honored that you all thought to put your babes in those outfits when you came here to the farm. It meant so much to me to see them!

Despite the gloomy weather, we had a great turnout and you all parked beautifully in the lot (and beyond). It was wonderful to see so many excited people looking to start gardens. Don't put those tomatoes and cucumbers and basil outside just yet, though! It's still too cold this week.

In case you missed it, I posted a list of the plants we had available last Saturday on bialasfarms.com. Go to the main menu, and follow the "Farm Stand" drop down to 2021 Plant Guide. If you forgot some of the numbers or varieties of the plants you will find them listed there.

The Farm Stand will be open again on Friday 5/21 and Saturday 5/22 for Plant Sales (and anything else that may grow between now and then). I'll have a better idea of the plants available as we get closer to those dates.

On behalf of our wonderful guest vendors and the entire Bialas Farms family, THANK YOU for your support. We hope you enjoyed your day as much as we did.

I don’t care that it’s going to be raining and 50° tomorrow. As long as I have a minty rum drink in my hand it could snow and I wouldn’t care…

Getting the barn set up for Saturday’s event, Thomas snagged a pic of his dear old mom. It seemed appropriate to wear this T-shirt in honor of STAR WARS DAY (thank you, Paul).

It’s all about “The Force”, right?

I’m not a big fan of Star Wars, but In all honesty I do geek out on math. It was actually my major in college, which truly comes in handy when The Boy needs help with homework.

Any other Goshen grads have fond memories of Mrs. Terrilli, Mr. Lemma and Mr. Don Lyons?

I'm a little biased when it comes to strawberries for obvious reasons (my dad grows the best!). I can say without a doubt that LunaGrown Strawberry Jam hits the spot when I need a sweet addition to my breakfast baked goods.

I also think fruity rum drink would make many moms happy. A bit of strawberry jam (use the jam instead of simple syrup) blended into a frozen daiquiri is just what a hot weekend deserves. Stick a sprig of fresh mint in the glass for an extra festive touch.

Check out the LunaGrown shop and select your faves, then grab all you need at the 9th Annual Mother's Day Plant Sale and Market at Bialas Farms. We'll be setting up inside the barn at 75 Celery Ave New Hampton on Saturday, May 8th.

I gotta admit, the pickin's are a little slim these days, but I'm dreaming of the months to come when we will have SO MANY OPTIONS!

I'm still working out of the freezer and that thrills me to no end. Last night's chicken tacos included homegrown corn and roasted poblanos. I just wish I had some fresh cilantro and zucchini to go with it.

It really made me miss the days of summer when I can walk out into the zucchini patch and pick a few for dinner. I've attempted to eat store-bought (meaning shipped from heaven-knows-where-because-it's-not-local-to-here) zucchini this winter and each time I ended up tossing it into the compost pile.

I KNOW where my zucchini comes from and boy is it sweet and flavor-packed!

We'll be sharing our plants with you next weekend (May 8th, 9am - 2pm), but you can also share in the Bounty of our Harvest every week from mid-June until Halloween with Bialas Farms' Community Supported Agriculture program. I'll be on hand personally to answer your CSA questions and help you decide on the best options for you and your family.

Our veggie boxes are available pre-packed by your favorite FarmGirl and we offer Tuesday PM, Friday and Saturday pick-ups. If you are a Garnet Health employee, speak to Chris in Occupational Health for information on weekly deliveries to the hospital.

Since 1939, Bialas Farms has grown vegetables of exceptional quality for their own family, for their neighbors, and for the Greater Hudson Valley. Change is inevitable, but one thing is for certain: we're still growing the best for you in our 83rd year of business!

You can catch a glimpse of what we have to offer at our 2021 Opening Event on Saturday, May 8th.
Our NINTH ANNUAL Mother's Day Plant Sale and Market features special guest vendors @Lunagrown Jam, @Cedar.Hill.Botanicals, and @CorbettsCookieBarKitchen.

A precursor to our regular season farm stand, this event offers you a chance to pick up seedlings and herb plants that are just what we grow here at Bialas Farms. We will have an assortment of perennial herbs 🪴, heirloom tomatoes 🍅, sweet 🫑 and hot 🌶peppers, crucifers 🥦, cucurbits 🥒, and more.

Stop by and say 🙋🏻‍♀️HI 🙋🏻and get some fabulous gifts and treats for all of the mothers in your life. In fact, you can treat yourself to something that makes YOU happy because that's important, too!

See you inside the barn... 75 Celery Ave New Hampton

'Tis the season to choose your farm share partner!

Let us help you eat the best of the season every week from mid-June through the end of October. We'll send you a weekly newsletter with plenty of recipes and prep tips. If a weekly share seems like too much of a commitment, try our Biweekly program or perhaps start a BUYING CLUB with some friends or coworkers.

Today’s lunch...
🍗 Cumin-lime grilled chicken
🥬 Romaine and arugula
🌱 Cilantro
🥑 Avocado
🍊 Orange and Grapefruit ‘supremes’
🥗 Citrus Vinaigrette: 1 part red wine vinegar: 1 part orange and/or grapefruit juice: 2 parts extra virgin olive oil plus salt, pepper. Sometimes I add dried oregano, red pepper flakes, minced shallots. Shake it up in a small jar and don’t be afraid to taste and adjust ... you may prefer more oil or more vinegar (I like it TART). I LOVE this as a chicken or shrimp marinade as well.

For years, I have wanted to learn watercolor painting. I'm a complete novice and have never had instruction but I watch videos and am completely enthralled.

So a few weeks ago, I bit the bullet! I "bought" an online watercolor class. I make an appointment with myself to work the class every week. I'm pushing myself beyond my comfort zone and learning something new - something that helps me relax and allows me to create art in a new medium.

What other medium do I use to create art?

Food. I create EDIBLE art.

Before I learned how to cook, I ate what Doris put out for us. My mother taught me all the basics. Then, I became inspired to try new things because <<<this girl likes to eat good food>>>.

Currently, I use all of the wonderful veggies we grow in the ART I create on our nightly dinner plates. It's fun. It helps me relax. It allows me to be creative and nurturing.

I'm feeding us beautiful foods that MAKE US WANT TO EAT WELL.

It's not hard to do, either. You see, when you purchase a Bialas Farms CSA Farm Share, I send you an email the day before your chosen pick-up day. That email tells you what's IN your pre-packed share box and it gives you a ton of recipes and ideas to use everything you're getting.

So, even if YOU THINK YOU CAN'T COOK, you'll be surprised how easy it is once you've been inspired by farm fresh goodies. When you start with awesome ingredients, it's hard to mess things up! Every day I'm inspired by the colors, the aromas, the flavors and textures of the foods we grow and how to combine them. I want to share that with you.

We're now selling our 2021 Summer Farm Shares and you can check that out at bialasfarms.com. We offer pre-packed "Farmers Choice" shares and "Free Choice" shares where you pick what you want on your schedule. ALL Community Supported Agriculture farm share members receive the newsletter.

I encourage you to push outside of YOUR comfort zone and embrace the idea of eating seasonally. The best thing about Bialas Farms is the veggies, but the second best thing is the people. Farmers and customers alike will help you along the way.

Just smile and ask, "what the heck do I do with THIS?" We got ya! 😉

I was jonesing for a fresh jalapeño yesterday. Maybe to infuse some tequila, or maybe for a batch of black beans and rice.

I realized that my freezer stash of roasted chiles was not going to be appropriate for the tequila, but it worked perfectly well in the beans.

pretty soon we will have all the goodies we want to eat, and jalapeños are one of those items that CSA members can choose.

Of course, if they like it a little hotter, they can swap that choice and pick up some habaneros or ghost peppers. We gotcha covered!

We’re getting to the point in our year when the onions that were harvested in September are starting to sprout.

I consider this a bonus crop. 🧅

The green sprouts take the food they need to grow from the host onion. With time and sunlight, you will grow scallions!

My morning scrambled eggs are so much better when I snip a few scallion pieces into the pan.

Farmer Sonny was cleaning up the parking lot and came a little too close to the 4 x 4 posts that delineate my Jerusalem artichoke patch.
🌻
You can imagine our surprise when we discovered several pounds of artichokes perfectly preserved in the rocks and gravel beneath the wooden border. SUNCHOKES will grow just about anywhere, and they will likely grow everywhere that you don’t want them as well.
🌻
Since the posts have been moved already, we will shift them all back and increase the bed size. You will see beautiful yellow flowers adorning 8 foot tall green stems in July.
🌻
Keep an eye on their progress this summer!

Morning sun, hot coffee, and my ancient but cozy spring green “knock-around” hoodie.

It’s a good day to welcome all of our NEW and RETURNING CSA Farm Share members.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It makes all of us at Bialas Farms so happy to KNOW THE FOLKS WE GROW FOR!

Enjoy this beautiful Sunday 🌞

That Stimulus Check can last for 20 weeks if you invest in a Bialas Farms CSA Farm Share.

$410 for a small share ($620 for a large) paid once in the spring nets you a return of produce every week until Halloween.

Oh, plus, I send you an email recipe newsletter just before your share pick-up day that helps you get creative with your farm goodies!

It's a very cool arrangement. You can click the SHOP NOW button on Facebook or find the CSA information link in thefarmgirlcooks Instagram profile.

Do you have any questions for me about our program? I'm debating a Facebook LIVE Q&A...

Trying to figure out the name of this dish my Babci used to make. We called it kanupsa.

Any Polish folks want to chime in with assistance? Basically meatloaf patties with a ton of fried onions (because... onion farmers).
