Posted 1/22/2019 7:25am by Core Committee.

WHAT'S COMING

We haven't received confirmation from the farm on their packing list this week, so the share will be a surprise! Expect a mix of winter produce, along with other meat, dairy, and pantry items.

WEEKLY RECIPE INSPIRATION

Winter Squash Carbonara

Turning squash into a creamy pasta sauce is one of my favorite comfort recipes in the winter. This take on an egg-less carbonara creates a silky sauce in blender. 

Get the recipe here.

Female Ranchers Are Reclaiming the American West

As men leave animal agriculture for less gritty work, more ranches are being led by women — with new ideas about technology, ecology and the land.

For decades, family farms and ranches were handed down to men. Now, as mechanization and technology transform the ranching industry, making the job of cowboy less about physical strength — though female ranchers have that in spades — and more about business, animal husbandry and the environment, women have reclaimed their connection to the land.

At the same time, the brothers, sons and grandsons who would have historically inherited a family ranch have, in the last decade, opted to pursue less gritty work. As a result, in 2012, 14 percent of the nation’s 2.1 million farms had a female proprietor, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. That ratio may rise, as over half the farms and ranches in the United States are expected to change hands over the next 20 years.
