Farmstand Now Taking Thanksgiving Orders!
November 8th, 2011 by Katy McCoy

Last year at this time, we were scrambling to open the store.  This year we’re getting our act totally together (though still scrambling) and actually taking Thanksgiving orders!  We’d like to help you with your shopping and save you a trip to Port Townsend.  Place your order by Wed (Nov 16th) at the latest and we’ll package up for you all your produce, your free-range turkey, and your Pane d’Amore dinner rolls and pies.  Pick-up for your produce and turkeys will be either Sun or Mon (Nov 20 or 21).  Pick-up for your fresh-baked items will be Wed (Nov 23).

Click here to see the order form, or you may pick one up at the store.  In summary, a few of our offerings:

  • Rob Story is working hard to bring you the best in produce – i.e., not just regular old sweet potatoes, but “Japanese White” sweet potatoes.  “Way better”, says Rob.
  • The turkeys will be Mary’s frozen free-range turkeys which are raised in California without antibiotics, preservatives, or hormones.  They have been fed a high protein all-vegetarian diet, although not a certified-organic diet.  They range in size from 10 -22 lbs.  Be sure and allow enough time to thaw the turkey in the refrigerator, 24 hours for every 5 pounds.  A general rule of thumb is to buy one lb of turkey for every person present.  This will allow for moderate leftovers.  For more leftovers, buy more!
  • Pan d’Amore will be offering 4 types of special dinner rolls (including the Parker House rolls frozen and uncooked so you can bake them yourself for maximum aroma and tenderness), Midori Pumpkin Pie, Finnriver Apple Pie, and their stuffing mix.
  • We are busy stocking our shelves with everything we think you might enjoy, including Golden Glen Farmstead butter, Fresh Breeze whipping cream, canned pumpkin, canned cranberry sauce and more.  May we suggest serving Martinelli’s Sparkling Apple Cider as your non-alcoholic beverage, and one of our many good PNW Pinot Noirs or Chardonnays as the wine to best accompany your Thanksgiving fare.

Be sure and tell us if there is anything else we can do this holiday season to make things better for you.  We’re thankful for your patronage, and are here to serve you!
