Winter on Reeves Farm

Written By: Ellie Wilson, MS, RD  Senior Nutritionist, Price Chopper Supermarkets


I don’t think anyone would doubt that farmers have very busy lives. Last fall, I visited a number of the farmers that work with us at Price Chopper. They all carved time out to spend with me and show me some of what they do. As you might expect, they all described pretty long days – there is only so much time in the growing season, and so many things to do to keep a farm successful.

I also asked them all about vacation, and winter was unanimously the time they used to take trips and attend conferences. My bigger question was, what farm business happens over the winter that helps them successfully transition from season to season?

Brian Reeves of Reeves Farm outlined some of the work they do. Winter is down time, and the pace is very different. December brings work on taxes, and reviewing farm systems like drip irrigation, and machine needs, as they look to close out the last year and prepare for next. With that in mind, Reeves Farm has ordered a new corn planter, which will arrive in the spring. December also brings seed catalogs, and planning the tried and true crops and the new varieties for next season.

In the late fall, when all of the winter squash was finally harvested, they found themselves with a bumper crop. Storage was a huge issue – they have enormous bins they use for pumpkin and squash, and they can move them around with various farm machines. They were storing the bins everywhere – it was pretty tight. This wasn’t the first year they found themselves short on storage, but they decided it was going to be the last year.

It can only be good news when we learn farmers are expanding their capacity to grow and manage a bigger crop, especially our vegetable farmers. Check out the new packing barn annex they are adding on the original building – it is huge! It is a big step for a farm to take on a project like this – the last time they built was in 1992. You can see, when they go, they go big, because they are not going to be building again for a long time.

Vacation plans for trips to warmer climates are on the horizon. We will check back in with Brian and his family as the weather warms up a little, so we can get an inside view of the energy of spring. Meantime, stay warm and enjoy our winter crop of squash and apples – find a great recipe here!

The routine has been relentless and unmistakable… began 5 months ago and it has droned on, first there was the cold…then the snow…then even more cold and even deeper snow… has gone on and on and on. But wait what is that upon our horizon? It is coming soon and it is St Patrick’s Day, it is a warming beacon near the end of a long, hard winters run now let’s get ready for some fun.  First the list; Corned Beef, check; potatoes, carrots, cabbage, check; Beer, no….let’s do this correctly please, Irish Beer, DOUBLE CHECK! Let me list some selections to help you make your choice.

From CoPintStoutrk Ireland, and 1st brewed in 1856 Murphy’s Irish Stout, it is smooth and creamy with a slightly roasted flavor. It is known as a less bitter stout. It is sold in a Pint can and after pouring it gently into your glass don’t forget to stop and admire its color change before enjoying your first sip.

Harp Lager- For a beer, it is a relative youngster born in Dublin, Ireland in 1960. The name is truly HarpPintfitting as this beer is music to your taste buds. At first glance you’ll take note of the brilliant golden color and at first taste you’ll note a dry malty front that gives way to a crisp, dry hoppy finish. Try it and you’ll be hoppy too!

SmithwicksPint (2)Smithwick’s Ale (pronounced Smit-icks, simply forget the w)- A true veteran beer born in 1710 in Kilkenny, Ireland. Pour it into a Tulip Pint Glass and you’ll note the creamy off white head. One sniff reveals a light caramel with orange marmalade and a gentle smokiness. One sip will yield a fruity, spicy, malty taste that is also refreshing and clean in the finish.

Guinness Draught – A dry Irish Stout also from Dublin, dating back to 1759. It looks black, but upon closer examination it’s actually a deep ruby red with a creamy white collar made up of some of the tiniesGuinnessPint (2)t bubbles imaginable, as you pour you can watch the bubbles racing up the inside of the glass anxious to gulp a bit of fresh air. You’ll note malt and caramel flavors in a complex light bodied yet full flavored smooth and creamy taste; it is perfectly balanced so no one flavor predominates with a very clean finish that begs for more. You can purchase this in bottles or pint size cans (I prefer the cans myself). Now here is where we can become creative, take a Tulip Pint Glass and fill it half way with Harp Lager, then take your Guinness Draught and pour it gently into the glass (over the back of a spoon) to fill and you will have poured a Half and Half. Or you can fill the glass to the halfway point with Smithwick’s and complete with the gentle pour of Guinness Draught and you have poured a Blacksmith.

For me and I hope for you also, St Patrick’s is a day where no matter your own heritage we all become Irish for the Day. I think a small part of that happen is the genuine Irish Beer. Now to help you enjoy the holiday even more all of the leading Irish Beers are on sale at your local Price Chopper, Happy St Patrick’s Day and please remember to celebrate responsibly!
