What's Fresh Now: February

Make it a Valentine’s Day to remember with savory meals at Henning’s Local, Blue Mountain Bistro to Go, Ruby’s Hotel & Restaurant, The Heron, The Old Schoolhouse Inn & Restaurant, The Peekamoose Restaurant & Tap Room, Mama’s Boy Burgers, The Kaatskeller, Table on Ten, The North Branch Inn, Pickled Owl, or Zephyr Restaurant.

Goat: Why should you drink goat’s milk? Health benefits include high in calcium, riboflavin, phosphorous, B-12 and protein. Lastly it is so darn yummy and there are so many great things you can do with it. Check out these farms to find your local goat milk or cheese today: Painted Goat Farm, Dirty Girl Farm, Windy Hill Goat Dairy, Hare and Feather Farm.
Check out this “We are Pure Catskills” video from members: Windy Hill Goat Dairy.
Rabbit: Do you like to hunt/trap or even buy Rabbit to eat? Rabbit meat contains less calories than other meats, is almost cholesterol-free, and has a high level of protein. Rabbit is great for those looking for leaner meats, and the flavor is said to be comparable to chicken (but not identical.) You can purchase rabbit from Pure Catskills member Black Willow Pond Farm, Stone and Thistle Farm and find great farm fresh recipes on our Pure Catskills Pinterest.
CSA (Community Supported Agriculture): With Spring right around the corner, be an early bird and join a local CSA! A CSA is your next commitment to buying local and an increasingly popular way to build stronger connections between farms and consumers. Receive a weekly box of fresh vegetables, produce or eggs all summer long. Purchase a share from The 607 CSA, Foxtail Community Farm, Rusty Plough Farm, Stoneledge Farm or Berry Brook Farm. Visit the Pure Catskills member directory to locate more farms offering CSAs!
