Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Here are some pictures from our Real Veggies Farm Thanksgiving.

While cooking was going on in the kitchen, we started out with some live entertainment, and even some dancing.

Not the clearest pic, but you get the idea.

And here are this years Thanksgiving food pictures:

Our Thanksgiving Turkey

Scalloped Carrots 
(unfortunately in this picture you can not see the beautiful colors of the carrots, yellow, white, orange, purple, and red)

Macaroni Salad 
(with of course our pasta)

Creamed Corn

Beans with Basil Butter

Pan Fried Turnips, Potatoes, and Radishes

Garlic Bread
(The only thing I actually messed up, everyone is aloud to mess up every now and then right.  Lesson learned from this one do not use the broiler on hi, always use the low setting.  Believe it or not they still did not taste bad, just look a little burned.  I also manged to forget the Parmesan cheese, oh well, but it was still good.)

 Stuffing made out of my Onion Bread

Garlicky Beets

My plate served with some of our friends homemade wine.

Of course like always I forgot to take a picture of the pumpkin pie, maybe some year I will remember.

Like every year everything that we ate was either grown by us or from our friends.  That is what makes Thanksgiving so special to us here at Real Veggies Farm!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Craft Show Pictures

Today we were at the Relay for Life Craft Show, this was our first craft show, before this we have always just done farmers markets.  Thanks to everyone who came by today our first craft show was a success.  It was so nice to be set up inside, we did not have to worry about the sun, wind, or cold.  This was another first for us.

Our table at the Relay for Life Craft Show 

One of the challenges for me was trying to figure how to fit everything on one 6ft. table.  That was fun, but I did it!  I had to build a couple of displays, but in the end I think it looked pretty nice.

 Building my new bread display.

 The finished product at the show.  I think it worked out pretty good.

Introducing New Garlic Herb Buns!

For a while now I have been wanting to make up some buns out of the same dough that I use to make my garlic herb braided bread, well yesterday I finally made some!  I had a couple bags today at the at the Valley City Farmers Market, as a trial, and I will defiantly be making them again.  I plan to have some next Saturday at the Erhart/York Craft Fair.  I can not wait to make up a sandwich with these buns, they do taste great by themselves though.

New Garlic Herb Buns
Just like the our famous Garlic Herb Braided Bread, but in a bun!

Pancakes with Veggies

This morning I decided to make pancakes for breakfast.  I made my buttermilk oatmeal pancakes.  When I had about a quarter of the batter left I came up with the idea to add some of my veggies to the mix.  I chopped up real fine, a sweet pepper, tomato, some kale, and a small summer squash.  I then added it all to the pancake batter and cooked just like I did the rest of the pancakes.  It gave the pancakes a nice hearty vegetable taste.

So next time you are making up your favorite pancakes try adding some veggies for something a little different.

Upcoming Event- October 24th 2015

This weekend Saturday October 18th 2015 we will be selling at the Valley City Farmers Market location from 9am- Noon.  Our normal location.

We will have all our normal goodies: pasta, jams, jellies, gift baskets, bread, cut flowers- dahlias, veggies such as tomatoes, peppers, summer squash, radishes, scallions, greens, lettuce, carrots, beans, and more.

I am still not sure if we will be setting up the following weekend (Saturday 10-24) at Valley City, I will let everyone know when the time comes closer.


Next Saturday October 24th 2015 we will be at the Erhart/York Firefighters Association 4th Annual Craft Show, from 10am- 3pm.  It is located at the corner of 252 and 18.  This will be our first time at this event.

We will have our pasta, jams, jellies, our gift baskets, bread, and maybe some other things.  Hope to see everyone there!
