March is the rogue month, the bridge between Winter and Spring. Our biggest concern is the stone fruit blossom set which can be determined by temperature, rain and hail intensity, and wind velocity. Happily, the number of “chill hours” (hours of temperatures below 40 F which help ensure healthy fruit trees with strong blossom/fruit sets) has been solid this winter- a key first step. A lily family member containing a good bit of iron plus vitamins B and C, Asparagus is a perennial with a life span of about 15 years. Elegant, scrumptious, easy prepping, high yielding and fast cooking, nothing beats fresh, local Asparagus. Read more here.
Single Origin TCHO!We’re excited to expand our TCHO Chocolate line! Get ready to jump on the TCHO Chocolate train with four TCHO PURENOTES couverture single varietals: Nutty 65%, Bright 67%, Fruity 68% and Chocolatey 70%.
Learn about how we work with the most reputable growers and brokers, building strong relationships.TCHO, the only chocolate factory located in the city of San Francisco, was founded by a Space Shuttle technologist and chocolate industry veteran with a singular goal in mind: To create “obsessively good dark chocolate.” TCHO takes a unique approach to categorizing and tasting chocolate, expanding on the traditional conventions of varietal, origin and percentage, to focus as well on the flavors inherent in cacao as categories in and of themselves. TCHO personally sources their beans, all of which are then cut-tested, roast-tested and melanged in numerous more tests before lots are given the green light. Then formulation trials ensued, including sugar tests, before the first bars are given to tasters in the company’s “beta testing” format (in which customers participate in the development of new chocolate flavor profiles).

Cypress Grove founder Mary Keehn began raising goats in the 1970s to provide her family with healthful milk – in 1983, she took that milk to the next level and created Cypress Grove Chevre, a forerunner in the American artisanal cheese movement. Today Cypress Grove, in Humboldt County, works with small local farms to gather the best goat milk California has to offer, and turns that milk into products that represent the gold standard of fine cheese in the U.S. Learn more. Butter, cream, milk, eggs, yogurt and sour cream – all of this and more is available every day from the GreenLeaf dairy department.
