This page contains news, event information, and other items added by myself, the intrepid farmer-in-process at Old 99. I send out a message every week, but most are set with a delete date about two weeks later. I archive some of the posts if they have content other than weekly availability of produce and meat.
You can send me questions too, which if they are of a general nature, I can post to this Old99 blog.
Week of April 27th 2020
Hello everyone, we hopenypire doing well! I have two new greens available this week: Choy Sum and Shuidong Mustard greens.
On the palate, Shuidong mustard is crispy, delicious and tender with a fresh sweet flavoir and has no bitter taste of ordinary mustard greens. It adds a nice flavor nd a splash of bright green to fresh salads. Shuidong mustard helps with digestion.
Choy Sum contains small yellow flowers that are similar in appearance to gai lan and are also edible with a peppery but very subtle mustard flavor. Choy sum is juicy, tender, and crunchy with a sweet. It is great steamed, in stir fry or in soups.
Egg production is coming back up and the chickens are settling in more and lore each week. The baby Cornish cross chicks we picked up last week are growing and looking strong and we look forward to having pastured meat birds for all of our wonderful customers.
We wish you a happy and healthy week and look forward to your orders this week.
Nick and Angela
