Flatbread with Fava Beans and Cucumbers

This recipe calls for grilling your flatbread dough (YUM) but you could also do this on a griddle or large frying pan for a similar but less-charred effect. Or you could go store bought, or use a slice of toast, that's fine too!

Hi Members,

We're looking for volunteers in the 2:00pm - 4:00pm time slot this week. We currently have no volunteers for this slot, and unloading is one of the most crucial tasks! Please email us or just stop by and help out if you are available. Remember, all members must volunteer for 2 shifts throughout the season, so if you haven't had a chance to sign up for your first volunteer shift, be sure to do so here

Happy 4th of July! 

The WSCSA Core Committee  


A week of summer has hit the farm finally! However, as with all farmers it is never right…the heat accelerated growth on lettuce, fava beans, and pretty much everything else which makes for a lot available in a window that is too narrow for what works for us in terms of moving our products through our market channels. Our Wednesday experiment looks like a bust so one of our guys will deliver. The planting for fall continues as seen in pictures and the battle with mud has been replaced with the battle with bugs, heat, and humidity. However, mostly the crops are doing well and thriving.

Featured Vegetable
Fava Beans: Definitely a favorite in our household; We use it many different ways from baby favas cooked whole (pod and beans) in yogurt sauce with lamb. Also, baby favas cut up and sautéed with garlic and onions and served with lemon and cilantro. The beans we cook with rice and meat and the fava flavor with a hint of cinnamon is exquisite. According to healthline.com here is the summary of benefits: Fava beans are incredibly nutritious and an excellent source of soluble fiber, protein, folate, manganese, copper and several other micronutrients. May help with Parkinson’s, fetal development, anemia, and the immune system.
