Young Collards / Hamm Farm- Cullman, Alabama

Spring is the perfect time for new beginnings and this past weekend was one such time for us. With the opening of the Pepper Place Market season on Saturday, April 13th, we celebrated the grand opening of our latest brick-and-mortar venture there, The FarmStand by Stone Hollow at Pepper Place. This space is everything we have been dreaming about having for years; filled with glorious light, plenty of room for all the wares we love to showcase, and even a little office space to boot. Plus, the location overlooks the Pepper Place Market parking lot that comes to bustling life every Saturday morning. From our vantage point, we get to see all the dogs and baby-filled strollers and happy produce shoppers each weekend. And those same customers (well, minus the canines) can come shop with us each Saturday as well as Monday through Friday! We truly are over the moon about this new chapter in our farm life.

If you are lucky enough to pick up your weekly CSA at our Pepper Place location, take an extra minute to enjoy all of the fresh blooms we’ve brought in – we’ll have large buckets teeming with poppies, delphinium, tobacco, nigella, parrot tulips, herbs, anemones, blueberry stems, lambs ear and foxglove. If you’d prefer to take home something pre-made, we’ll have full bouquets of nigella, foxglove, mint, delphinium, anemones, sweetpeas and more. These flowers are guaranteed to happy-up your home.

In the CSA basket this week, you’ll find more of what makes our relationship with local farmers so special: cucumbers from Greenleaf Nursery, mixed radish bundles from Belle Meadow, green garlic and young collards from Hamm Farms, romaine lettuce and parsley from Southern Organics as well as Asparagus from Farmer Hab.  There are English peas from Florida and shiitake mushrooms from Grandview.  Chef Corey Hinkel made dinner rolls for us this week. Our own Elegance and arugula mixed greens round out the basket.

But just like on those late-night As Seen on TV infomercials, we have to exclaim, “But wait! There’s more!” We are so excited to share one of our latest finds with our CSA friends: popcorn rice from Baker Farm in Louisiana. This fragrant, nutty-tasting rice is ubiquitous in lower Louisiana and pairs beautifully with grilled meats, holding a substantial flavor profile all its own. We can see adding those fresh peas to the cooked fluffy grains and maybe grating some lemon zest on top. Serve this rice with grilled chicken thighs or, if you’re lucky, a turkey from a recent shoot (the spring season ends in late April so your hunter still has a few more opportunities to bag a tom…) There’s no wrong way to enjoy this popcorn rice.

We look forward to hearing what you make this week with your CSA. As always, feel free to tag us on Instagram @stonehollowfarmstead or @farmstandbystonehollow
