Easy as Pie

Our blackberry bush is producing so many berries this year. We can barely keep up with them...

My one year old helping himself to our berries, who taught that kid to open the fridge?!
Ok, so eating them hasn't been an issue, but picking them gets a little prickly! No berries in your backyard? No problem! We at The Red Barn have got you covered. 
The berries are so delicious this year that it almost pains me to do anything but eat them fresh, but who can resist a good summer fruit pie?
 Today I want to show you how insanely simple it is to make an amazing pie.
First step: Stop at The Red Barn and pick up a take and bake pie shell (they come two in a box) 
and berries of your choice.  

Because fruit is our main ingredient you will want about 4 cups of berries. Feel free to mix and match your berries. Then just add 3/4 to 1 cup sugar (depending on how sweet you want it) and 1/4 cup flour. Toss gently so you don't mash the berries. This is all you need, but feel free to experiment with adding spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. to give your pie a special twist and unique flavor. 

Pour into the unbaked pie shell.
Use the second shell to make a top crust. Pinch to seal the edges and cut a few slits in the top and pop it in the oven. Bake until golden brown (about 45 minutes-1 hour if baking at 350 degrees). Because fruit pies often boil over, I highly recommend putting the pie tin on a cookie sheet to protect your oven from spillage.
Cool slightly before cutting. Then top with whipped cream or your favorite Red Barn ice cream.
Wasn't that easy?

And if that still seems like too much work for you, we have our take and bake pies that are fully prepared. Just buy and put in the oven, you don't even have to let it thaw. We use grandma's secret recipe, and I haven't met a pie that rivaled our flaky crust anywhere. Try one for yourself today and see what I mean!

Juicer Giveaway

To celebrate reaching over 3000 fans on facebook, and the launch of our new website, we want to present to you a giveaway! What we have here is a Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor. We’d like to thank Hamilton Beach for sponsoring this giveaway and generously providing this prize.
You’ll want to enter this giveaway because this juicer is awesome! I find that I never get the suggested amount of fruits and vegetables in my diet. Well, working at The Red Barn I get plenty of fruits, but vegetables and I have never been that great of friends. I mean who wants to munch on broccoli, spinach, and brussels sprouts when you can have an apples, berries, and cherries instead? Well with this juicer you can do both!

This machine gobbles up fruits and vegetables whole. Most of our apples are larger, so they need to be cut in half first, but when using most vegetables, you just feed it through the chute, with no precutting required. You’ll need to peel your citrus fruit, and take pits out of cherries and peaches, but other than that, you just wash your produce and toss it right in. You’ll be amazed at how FAST and SIMPLE it is to get fresh juice, and because our fruit is so sweet and flavorful, you can add handfuls of vegetables and not even taste them! I went from eating spinach and carrots once a week to once a day with the help of the Hamilton Beach Juice Extractor! And the best part? The kids love it too! If your house is anything like mine, it’s always a battle at mealtime to even get your kids to put the vegetable on their plate, let alone eat it! We've found that celery, carrots, spinach, and cucumbers all have a mild flavor that pairs well with apples, pears, and oranges. With juicing you are losing out on the fiber, but all the other essential nutrients are still there, and are actually absorbed into your body faster than eating the food raw.



The Hamilton Beach Juice Extractor is easy to assemble, and has an extra-large pulp collecting bin, so you can juice nonstop for the entire family. You’ll want to remember to put the cup under the juicing spout, because nobody likes to drink the juice straight from the counter top (ya, that accident may have happened more than once around here!). I also suggest putting a towel or napkin under the machine to catch any drips of juice that may fall out after moving the juicing cup. Because it’s dishwasher safe it’s a breeze to clean up as well (although I still suggest washing it by hand immediately after juicing to prevent the pulp from drying onto the machine). The pulp left over from juicing can be tossed, fed to animals, added to the compost heap, or be used in many recipes. Because produce loses vitamins shortly after juicing due to exposure to light and oxygen, you’ll want to consume your juice within 24 hours, or freeze for later use. We've been juicing strawberries and putting it in ice cube trays to freeze. It makes a wonderful treat when added to lemonade on hot summer days!
We’d love you to share the recipes you’ve come up with on our new “share your recipes” feature on our newly remodeled website. Here’s one I created using produce from The Red Barn and my Hamilton Beach Juice Extractor. I call it The Cooler Cooler!

The Cooler Cooler
1 cup cherries
1 cup strawberries
2 apples
2 oranges

Wash all fruit. Peel the oranges, pit the cherries, and cut apples in half. Toss into juicer (or blender) until smooth. Pour over ice and serve garnished with an orange slice or strawberry if desired. Simple, nutritious, and refreshing!

With juicers, the recipe possibilities are endless. Use your imagination and you’ll be right on your way to a healthier you! So, are you ready to try juicing yourself? Enter this giveaway for your chance to win!

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!

Planting Pots

We had a great turn out for our Planting Planters and Hanging Baskets class. Based on the number of coupons redeemed in the greenhouse, I'm guessing there are lots of beautiful planters around town! We'd love to see what you ended up creating. Before the class, I hand painted these old beat up terracotta pots to give them a fresh look. 



I took my sons to the class and greenhouse with me. While they enjoyed looking at all the bright colored, beautiful flowers, they LOVED finding the "bugs". We saw butterflies, bees, and even a fat toad!


Just one of our several happy customers! He couldn't wait to surprise his wife for Mother's Day! (Flowers make a great gift if you haven't picked up anything for Mom yet....it is this Sunday!!)

Remember how I was going to stack those pots? Well, after seeing the great selection of flowers, I just couldn't help but buying a little of everything! I didn't have room to stack my pots anymore, so I just planted them like so. 

As the trailing flowers bloom, these will be so beautiful. Now to keep the boys from picking all the fresh blooms! How do you think they turned out?

Earth Day 2012

As Earth Day approaches, I wanted to share with you some things that The Red Barn does to stay environmentally friendly, and share with you a few simple ideas of how you can "go green" in your own life. As farmers, we work close with the land. It's our most valuable resource, and we try to protect it as such. Each year we plant hundreds of trees. When it is time for old trees to be taken out, new trees are then planted in return. We also irrigate with natural run off water from melted mountain snow instead of water that has been treated by a facility, which helps reduce our carbon footprint. We sell all of our pantry products in reusable glass jars, and pack our fruit in recycled cardboard and paper sacs instead of plastic. Our newest environmental project is using the left over apple mash from our cider mill and turning it into compost to enrich the soil in which we plant.

As a Red Barn customer, you can make small changes, that over time, can have a lasting impact on the environment. You can continue to shop for your produce locally, use reusable bags, and reporpose/upcyle your glass and cardboard containers. One of our family's favorite ways to repurpose cardboard is by making costumes. Check out some of these great ideas on ways to use your old cardboard apple box!



Need more ideas for using cardboard? Check out this blog here. This lady knows her stuff! Happy Earth Day. Visit us on facebook and let us know what you are doing to be more environmentally aware! Thanks for stopping by!
