Go Natural When Dyeing Easter Eggs

eco-egg-dyeing-meme

  When I was a kid, every Easter I dunked eggs in mugs filled with those fizzing tablets that instantly produced vibrant colors. It was the ’70s, or the better-living-through-chemistry decade, when no one questioned how chemicals affected our health. Today, even though the kits sold in stores proclaim to be nontoxic, many still contain synthetic food dyes that studies have linked to allergies and behavioral problems like ADHD in children. Why not skip the kits with neon colors and glitter pens (they contain polyurethane) and go au naturel this spring? Using veggies, fruits, spices, tea, and coffee will produce a vivid array of hues from soft pastels to deep, earthy tones. Of course, creating dyes with organic produce will help […]

Reflecting on 2015, Revving up for 2016

Look Back at 2015

Looking Back at 2015 & Forward to 2016 What a wonderful—and action-packed—2015! We were reminded yet again that Mother Nature is always in charge. She brought heavy spring rains that kept our local farmers from planting their fields and delayed the growing season by several weeks. Meanwhile, our West Coast friends were having the opposite problem, thanks to a record-breaking drought. So here in Colorado, we enjoyed delicious spinach and fresh rhubarb from local farms while waiting patiently for the rest of our local season’s bounty. But we had plenty of events to keep us busy, including the Local Food Summit, Healthy Living Expo, Earth Day, VegFest, and Lafayette Peach Festival. We fueled our high-altitude athletes with organic bananas at […]

5 Ways to Simplify Thanksgiving

Turkey Feast

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays because it’s all about cooking and sharing Good Food with people you love. That said, we’ve all experienced Thanksgivings where we sent family members on last-minute trips to the store or ended up with overcooked turkey while we were busy making an overly ambitious number of side dishes. This year, let us help you get a jump-start on the holiday with five tips to make planning easier and by delivering all you need for your feast. 1. New! We’re delivering fresh turkeys. Now you can pre-order a fresh (never frozen) turkey that we’ll deliver the first part of Thanksgiving week. We’re carrying what we think are the best fresh turkeys available, from sustainable-meat […]

CU purple potato knife cropped

In the flat expanses of northern Colorado, about 30 miles east of the foothills, sits Strohauer Farms. Here, on 3,000 acres of land outside the small town of La Salle, third-generation farmer Harry Strohauer and his dedicated team cultivate corn and specialty onions such as shallots and cipollini. But their most famous crop is potatoes. They grow mainstay types like russet, red, Yukon Gold, and Purple Majesty, along with four fingerling varieties: Russian Banana, Rose Finn, French, and Purple Peruvian. The first generation of Strohauer Farms put down roots in the Greeley area in the early 1900s when Harry’s grandfather (who had 10 sons!) began working the land. In the 1930s, Harry’s father moved the farming operation to its current […]
