<span class="&quot;titleText&quot;">Finally.&#160; Finally.&#160; BC Fruit&#160;is arriving.</span> What a long wait.&#160; BC Organic Fruit has finally started to come from Cawston.&#160; Harkers Fruit Ranch has managed to get some cherries off the trees between rain deluges and we are pleased to have those available this week.&#160; Only 100lbs so order early.&#160; BC Apricots are being picked now so they will likely make it for next week.&#160; The rain is really impacting the ability of our farms to get the fruit in and we are losing hundreds of pounds&#160;to rain split.&#160; None the less, the first cherries arrived today and they are stunning.&#160; Reducing the shipping time by 5 days makes all the difference for organic fruit.&#160; We've decided to stop bringing peaches from California and wait until the BC ones are ready because they just aren't holding up.&#160; A few weeks away. We have Sea Beans (also known as Sea Asparagus).&#160; Those of you that were with us last&#160;year will remember these salty treats.&#160; They are wildcrafted&#160;from the Pacific Ocean on Vancouver Island.&#160; Look for some recipes in the newsletter next year. Our total list of items allows you to mix and match to make your perfect box of Organic produce. When we can't get it locally, I find sustainably-produced food from non-local farms and bring it here. Good, real food, available year-round and bought from small farms and producers at a fair price. <table cellspacing="&quot;15&quot;" cellpadding="&quot;0&quot;" bgcolor="&quot;#edf0e9&quot;"> <tbody> <tr> <td>&#160;&#160;<img title="&quot;New" src="&quot;/uploadedImages/009_-_This_Week/New" alt="&quot;New" width="&quot;154&quot;" height="&quot;107&quot;" /></td> <td><strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">Wheatlets and Flour from New Life Organic Foods</span></strong> <span style="font-family: Calibri;">The Witzaney family farm was homesteaded in 1911.&#160; In 1999 they reclaimed their heritage in organic farming.&#160; Within a few years their farmland was certified organic and they noticed many benefits.&#160; The soil, once lumpy and hard, was becoming soft and mellow.&#160; They were able to pull larger machinery, yet burn less fuel - they attributed this to the presence of organic matter, the beneficial micro-organisms working in the soil.&#160; Now in spring there is an more earthy, fresh smell to the land.</span> <span style="font-family: Calibri;">They have always been interested in operating a family business.&#160; In 2007 they we were presented with an opportunity to buy an organic processing mill.&#160; After some serious thought, this idea firmly took root.&#160; Operating a mill corresponded to their dedication to growing organic foods and adding value to their home grown products.</span> <span style="font-family: Calibri;">Their goal and desire is to provide quality organic products to Canadians, while at the same time sustaining a century old family farm and the family farm way of life.</span> In the featured items section below, we have <strong>New Life wheatlets cereal</strong>, an easy to make nutritious breakfast choice featured.

It was through the Juurlinks that the now 27-year-old Petersen, a native of Sundre, Alta., got the bakery bug. Hired as a temp in 2001 to make Prairie Mill deliveries, Petersen&#8217;s role expanded, and soon he literally was up to his elbows in dough. &#8220;I just fell into it,&#8221; says Petersen, who spent two-and-a-half years baking at Prairie Mill in Calgary while learning the craft from the Juurlinks. They had fashioned a reputation baking a selection of &#8220;pioneer style&#8221; breads made with locally produced and ground organic grains, and other natural prairie ingredients such as Alberta honey. Traditional Prairie Mill selections include honey whole wheat, honey white, Yukon sourdough, nine-grain, milled flax, sunflower, whole wheat, corn millet, muesli whole wheat, cinnamon raisin and multigrain sourdough. In some loaves, up to 95 per cent of ingredients are Alberta-sourced. Recently, the Juurlinks and Prairie Mill were among three Alberta firms honoured as initial recipients of the Alberta Food for Health Awards. In receiving the $10,000 Premier&#8217;s Award, Prairie Mill was particularly cited for using stone-ground Alberta flour and local honey. <em>&#160;W<span class="&quot;small&quot;">ritten by <a href="&quot;http://www.bakersjournal.com/index.php?option=com_author&amp;name=Nordahl%20Flakstad&quot;">Nordahl Flakstad</a>&#160;from Bakers Journal&#160;&#160;</span>&#160;&#160;</em></td> </tr> <tr> <td> <p align="&quot;center&quot;"><img title="&quot;Camomille&quot;" src="&quot;/uploadedImages/009_-_This_Week/Chamomile.jpg&quot;" alt="&quot;Camomille&quot;" width="&quot;157&quot;" height="&quot;140&quot;" /></p> <div></div></td> <td> <p class="&quot;titleText&quot;"><span class="&quot;titleText&quot;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong><span class="&quot;titleText&quot;">Chamomile Tea</span> </strong></span></span></p> Chamomile is a calming and relaxing tea that has been known to help with indigestion, insomnia and rheumatism.

There are over 20 available products including those in the standard box. You can use the 'Choose My Box' page to mix and match your box and build the combination of these items that fits best for you! The order page will cap the value of your box but you can substitute for things like more fruit if you wish. We encourage everyone to give it a try. And if you want more than the box value will allow, purchase extra or add the 'extra fruit' to your order. <span class="&quot;titleText&quot;">Storage Tips </span> Here are <a title="&quot;some" href="&quot;/storage-tips.aspx&quot;">some tips </a>for storing the contents of your box. If you are finding that your greens and carrots are not lasting, make sure you are putting them in your crisper or a sealed tupperware container. Your fridge will de-hydrate them within a day or two. If they do go limp, give them a 10-15 minute bath in cold water and they will perk up again.
