Greetings BFBL Pledge-Takers,

We have a Valentine’s Day themed What’s Fresh Page for you this month. We encourage you to incorporate local ingredients into your romantic Valentine’s dinner- our recipes are sure to impress.

If you prefer to spend your Valentine’s day out and about, we’ve updated our What’s Happening Page to include all of the local food-related events and dinners going on around Des Moines.

Also on the What’s Happening page we list a few helpful resources in finding a CSA program to participate in. Community Supported Agriculture is a great way to build a relationship with the people who grow your food and many local farms offer these programs.

If you’re looking for a unique gift idea to give your Valentine, check out BFBL businesses and farms. For example, the Cheese Shop of Des Moines has a delicious Chocolate and Cheese gift box (call 515-528-8181). The Juice Company is rolling out a new juice called the”Love Potion #9” for Valentine’s day. This juice is made with a powerful love incantation along with strawberries, raspberries, apples, oranges, a pinch of magic AND it will come presented in a decorative presentation box.
