Fall’s Bounty from Orange Circle Farm

Fall Bounty from Orange Circle Farm

As we face shorter days and cooler temperatures, there’s something comforting about having a well-stocked kitchen. Though it’s that time between the end of our outdoor farmers’ market season and the beginning of the indoor one, Orange Circle Farm offers a way to help bridge the gap. Organic farmer Jeff Benton makes local food accessible through online ordering, a choice of three pick-up days and locations — either at the farm in Stratham or through Yoga on the Hill in Kittery, depending on day — and a generous order deadline of the night before desired pick-up. Order from what’s currently available or, for those who can’t decide, Jeff also offers a variety box.

This week’s variety box (above) contained braising greens, two heads of lettuce, Kennebec potatoes, onions, carrots, rutabaga, and a spaghetti squash. As a supplement, my order also included some baby kale and chard, red kuri, butternut, and delicata squash, sweet potatoes, more carrots, dried black beans, and a couple dozen eggs. If you hurry, you can still get an order in for this Saturday’s pick-up in Stratham.
