Dear Flacc Farm Friends,

We want to extend our thanks and appreciation to all of our friends and customers for your support over the past three decades. After 29 years of growing and selling organic produce, we have decided to stop selling commercially. We’ll continue to manage the farm and grow for ourselves, with a focus on continuing to build healthy soils, pull a little more carbon out of the atmosphere and manage our small orchard and fence rows. Who knows, maybe Anthony will finally start to fight the poison ivy before it’s completely ubiquitous!

There are several reasons for our decision, chief among them that Anthony has launched a new national organization, the RURAL URBAN BRIDGE INITIATIVE (RUBI), which is taking a good deal of time; and because we’d like the freedom to travel a bit during the spring or summer months, something that farming has precluded for many years.

We thank you again for your patronage and ask only that you continue to seek out and support local farmers in Abingdon and the surrounding areas. Anthony’s work and travel to many other parts of the country has made clear that we have a remarkable and diverse local food scene in this area, one of the best in the country, and we encourage you to continue being a part of that.

Anthony and Laurel

Lots of Flacc Farms produce at Blue Hills today and throughout the week, including:

* Broccoli and purple broccoli - probably two to three more weeks of this before the season ends
* Four color cauliflower, more abundant now, in 1 lb bags
* Sugar snaps - at their peak this week and next, very sweet
* Zucchini - three varieties in every bag: green, gold and Italian striped
* Jade beans - these are a wonderful bean, slender and delicious, almost an 'haricot verts' type
* Italian beans - perhaps the most flavorful bean overall, just getting rolling; should be plentiful for the next several weeks

At Blue Hills:

Mostly restocking shelves this morning, including more Italian beans, watermelons, heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and haricots verts.

A couple of things to note:

* If you are interested in canning quantities of Italian beans, let us know. We put up 7 jars of them yesterday, using a brine bath (vinegar, water, salt) and garlic, basil, rosemary and sage. It took 7 lbs to do 7 quart jars. We'll discount them 20% if you buy 7 lbs or more.

* Heirlooms have shifted and are mostly Cherokee Purple now, along with the Valencia (orange) and a few others. If you've not tried the Valencia, they are really good, not at all like a yellow tomato

* Cherry tomatoes are at their peak, with great colors and flavors in every pint.

* This might be the last offering of the haricots verts, as we have but a very small planting of these.

We just dropped off the following at Blue Hills Market on Pecan Street, Abingdon:

* Heirloom tomatoes - Cherokee Green, Cherokee Purple, Ukrainian Pink, Valencia and a couple of other varieties
* Red beefsteak tomatoes - Mostly Jet Star and Supersonic, really nice size and flavor
* Cherry tomatoes - orange, pink, striped, green and yellow
* Eggplant - Is back, the traditional long black as well as the Sicilian lavender
* Italian beans - just a few bags for now, as our first planting winds down. Lots more, beginning in about a week as the next planting starts to produce
* Haricots Verts - just three precious bags...
* Zucchini - green and gold, always picked small so no seeds
* Red grape tomatoes - firm, with a long shelf life but tasty for a grape tomato

These two kinds of beans are going to Blue Hills market this morning: one is a flat Italian being which is amazingly tender and delicious. The other is Haricot Vert, my favorite, which is just amazing in taste and texture. Both just need to be lightly steamed or Sautéed:

These will be going to Blue Hills market this morning:

With the 20% discount on all Flacc Farms produce (through Saturday), we've been bringing in more produce, more frequently. Right now, with the exception of asparagus, the coolers are full of broccoli, cauliflower, romanesco, sugar snaps and even a few bunches of carrots.

Tomorrow, we'll restock anything that is low and also add a new item, snow peas, to the mix. We have only a small planting of these, so it won't be but a handful of bags. We'll also be delivering our final picking of asparagus tomorrow.

Thanks for your patronage, and please keep spreading the word that Blue Hills Market is a great little grocery store!
