#HolidayGiftGuide - Farm Fresh Produce and More from Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef's Garden!

 *DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef's Garden for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

In my opinion, food always makes a great gift, especially fresh from the garden produce.  If you don't have a garden of your own, Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef's Garden has got you covered!  

Whether you want to give the gift of beautiful, healthy produce or you are looking for a source of delicious, fresh produce for your holiday meals, they are sure to have something that will make your season more merry and bright!

Farmer Jones Farm offers so many great fresh, seasonal items as well as handmade gifts that are sure to be the star of your holiday gatherings!  You can buy items a la carte or get a seasonal box of goodies shipped straight to your door.  

With the box, you receive a selection of seasonal, nutrient-dense, flavor-rich food that will revolutionize your kitchen. 

As soon as Farmer Jones Farm receives your order, they head to the field, harvest your produce, and get it on its way to you. It’s like having your own garden, but without the work.  Your own personal farmer!

You can sign up for a recurring order to be delivered to your door as often as you'd like. Customize your delivery frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly) and you can change, pause, or cancel at any time. 


Depending upon the season, the farmer’s market delivery box may contain a mix of fresh lettuce and greens, a mix of root crop, potatoes, cruciferous, sweet potatoes, and the best micro greens and herbs.     

You can choose the box size that works best for your family:
Small - Best for 1-2 people for approximately one week.
Medium - Best for 3-4 people for approximately one week.  

Here is a sampling of a typical Best of the Season Box:

Fall Signature Micro Blend
Mixed Microgreens
Edible Flowers
Fall Radishes
Bok Choy

The produce is beautiful and vibrant!  It's a really great assortment to help keep you cooking fresh and with seasonal goodies.

One of The Chef’s Garden's newest collaborations is with Prospect Jam Company, an artisan jam and marmalade company located in Ohio.  They offer a great line of jams using the freshest produce.  We love the Carrot Cake Marmalade and the Pepper Marmalade!  Both go great on toast or biscuits for a breakfast bursting with flavor!

Farmer Jones Farms offers some really great self-care products that are made from fresh garden ingredients.  Check out one of our favorites:

The Flower House Salve is a product of collaboration between a family farm and an Amish family of soap makers. The salve is made with beeswax from The Chef's Garden hives and lemon verbena from the fields around them. It’s a beautiful lightly aromatic lemon scented natural product for long cold winters. Flowerhouse Salve is very versatile. It can be used as a hand salve and a moisturizer and makes a lovely gift! 

Another great gift idea for those home chef's on your gift list is this lovely cookbook:

The Chef's Garden: A Modern Guide to Common and Unusual Vegetables

About the book:
Near the shores of Lake Erie is a family-owned farm with a humble origin story that has become the most renowned specialty vegetable grower in America. After losing their farm in the early 1980s, a chance encounter with a French-trained chef at their farmers' market stand led the Jones family to remake their business and learn to grow unique ingredients that were considered exotic at the time, like microgreens and squash blossoms. 

They soon discovered chefs across the country were hungry for these prized ingredients, from Thomas Keller in Napa Valley to Daniel Boulud in New York City. Today, they provide exquisite vegetables for restaurants and home cooks across the country.

The Chef's Garden grows and harvests with the notion that every part of the plant offers something unique for the plate. From a perfect-tasting carrot, to a tiny red royal turnip, to a pencil lead-thin cucumber still attached to its blossom, The Chef's Garden is constantly innovating to grow vegetables sustainably and with maximum flavor. It's a Willy Wonka factory for vegetables.

In this guide and cookbook, The Chef's Garden, led by Farmer Lee Jones, shares with readers the wealth of knowledge they've amassed on how to select, prepare, and cook vegetables. Featuring more than 500 entries, from herbs, to edible flowers, to varieties of commonly known and not-so-common produce, this book will be a new bible for farmers' market shoppers and home cooks. With 100 recipes created by the head chef at The Chef's Garden Culinary Vegetable Institute, readers will learn innovative techniques to transform vegetables in their kitchens with dishes such as Ramp Top Pasta, Seared Rack of Brussels Sprouts, and Cornbread-Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms, and even sweet concoctions like Onion Caramel and Beet Marshmallows.

The future of cuisine is vegetables, and Jones and The Chef's Garden are on the forefront of this revolution.

My thoughts:
This cookbook is gorgeous!  It is full of really great information on amazing produce and, of course, tons of superb recipes to help elevate your menu plan with the help of those lovely ingredients!  It is a true treasure trove for anyone who enjoys cooking.

What a fantastic assortment of gift ideas!  We are super impressed with the freshness and variety of all of the veggies! By eating wholesome foods, Mother Nature will provide you and your family with vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.  Plus, as a result of Farmer Jones Farm's regenerative farming practices, they have found that their products can contain up to 200 to 500% more mineral content than the USDA average!  You'd be hard-pressed to beat that!

Give the gift of beautiful and nutritious home grown garden-fresh produce and goodies from Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef's Garden this holiday season!
