The Girl, the Grouch and the Goat

Aug. 19 - Oct. 2

In Greece, humble villagers are suffering a terrible drought. A curmudgeon with the only well in town locks up his beautiful daughter to protect her from suitors. The goddess Aphrodite decides to get involved and demands the sacrifice of a goat. Sound crazy? Wait until almost everyone ends up in the well. Then we invite you to enjoy the ensuing pandemonium. Eventually, order is somehow restored in this zany but fun-spirited parody of Greek mythology, love stories, and the musical theater genre. A brand-new show by the Tony winning creator of "Urinetown the Musical."

Wonderful CSA Shares for Sale!

Hi, all! We are selling our two shares of the rest of this summer's Jacob's Cove CSA harvest (CSA = Community Supported Agriculture). The full harvest was 13 weeks, and there are 9 weeks left in this harvest. Basically, you pay the fee, and once a week you pick up a box piled high with gorgeous produce all grown right here in Orem. We love the food, but due to changes in family circumstances, we are unable to make use of all the food we receive every week, and want someone else to have the opportunity.
Types of produce you get includes:
  • Amazing heirloom tomatoes (many varieties)

  • Salad greens (many varieties)

  • Zucchini (several varieties)

  • Squash (several varieties)

  • Peas

  • Carrots

  • Beets

  • Radishes

  • Raspberries

  • Cherries

  • Melons
The produce is organically grown, and this farm is especially famous for its heirloom tomatoes. You can check out the farm's website at HeritageHarvest.net. Salt Lake City Weekly had this to say about the tomatoes:
And so is a Caprese salad of ruby, orange and blood-red colored heirloom tomatoes from Jacob’s Cove Farm served with soft and creamy hand-pulled mozzarella, basil and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. The plump biodynamically grown tomatoes taste like essence of tomato; it’s as if they were infused with some sort of nuclear tomato nectar.
And we agree! The tomatoes are just plain amazing.I know a bunch of you have your own gardens, but I wanted to let our neighbors know about this yummy opportunity. The cost for the remaining weeks is $270 and, believe me, you get tons of food. This past week's box was just overflowing! It might be possible for us to split our double share in to 2 single shares if you're interested in spending half as much and getting less food. Let us know if you are interested, or if you have any questions. We'd love to find someone who could take our shares that we'll be picking up tomorrow (Monday). Our pick up location is right down the street at Herbs for Life on State St. You can contact us at ravenhaymond at gmail.com or at 801-448-7884.
