Thanksgiving from the Organic Kitchen

We’re cooking for Thanksgiving. If you live near our Carmel Valley, CA, Farm Stand (or plan to be in the Monterey Bay area for the holiday), let us help you fill your celebration table with a delicious all-organic menu!

Now taking orders — call 831-625-6219 x11 or stop by the Farm Stand today! (Last day to place orders is Sunday, Nov. 23. All orders can be picked up at the Farm Stand on Tuesday, Nov. 25 and Wednesday, Nov. 26.)

2009 is Our 25th Year

Earthbound Farm began in 1984 on a 2.5-acre backyard garden; 2009 will be our 25th anniversary year. We’re starting our celebration a little early with this beautifully printed, oversized 2009 wall calendar. Each month features vibrant, full-color photography of some of our California fields, with room to write reminders and engagements for even the busiest family. Makes a great holiday gift! You’ll find our 2009 calendar (and other Farm Stand treats) in our online store for just $12.95, and shipping is free! Or pick yours up at our Farm Stand.

Time for Mushrooms!

Few foods so completely enrapture devotees the way mushrooms do. In this month’s Seasonal Food Spotlight, we feature the humble mushroom in a variety of delicious ways, with a little history, lots of imaginative recipes, plus interesting nutritional information and prep tips, too. Enjoy!


Save the Date

Mark your calendar for the return of one of the Farm Stand’s perennial favorite events. This year’s Wreath-Making Workshop happens on Saturday, Dec. 6, from 11am-1pm. We’ll teach you how to twist organic grapevines into a wreath, then decorate it with natural greenery for yourself or as a lovely gift. Bring your gardening gloves! ($15 per person, includes materials and instruction.)

Learn more about Farm Stand events on our Special Events page. (Our new 2009 Event Calendar will be posted in March.)
