Organically raised Squash at the Farm or at Farmer’s Markets

Hi

We’ve been picking our fresh organically raised squash. We have several varieties including yellow crookneck and straightneck, zucchini of different types, and white scalloped bush .

The white scalloped bush squash look like mini spaceships. If you get them when they are tiny and steam them, they make a great addition to a kid’s plate…what kid doesn’t want to have a spaceship on his plate?

We have it fresh picked at the farm…and we are going to the Chilhowie (Polk County) Farmer’s Market in Benton, and the McMinn County Farmer’s Market in Athens.

The farm is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. If you come to the farm, you can see all our lovely flowers, the antique shop, and the horses.

The baby scallop bush squash, you can steam like you would slices of yellow or Zucchini squash.

The larger Zucchinis work well for delicious Zucchini bread…I’ll be adding my favorite recipe soon. Slices of the larger yellow and Zucchini squash are great for making vegetable lasagna or for layering with onions and baking as a side dish.
