Straw Hat Farm Has Opened a Store!

Written by shfadmin on January 27th, 2014

After many years of selling our Certified Organic garlic and other produce and baked goods at Farmer’s Markets, we now have stored away our canopies and replaced them with a  roof over our heads!   Our new store opened in September, 2013, and is open year round.  In addition to our organic produce and farm-fresh eggs, we carry an abundance of other quality local foods, lots of wholesome baked goods every Saturday, bulk grains, and a wide array of cooking/baking equipment including Bosch kitchen mixers and NutriMill grain mills.

Visit the Straw Hat Farm Market & Kitchen Store at 514 S. 1st Street in lovely downtown Montrose, Colorado!


Tis the Season

Yes, it’s that time of year again!  Time to plant garlic!  It’s about a two week process around here, and we have to be flexible and work around the occasional snowstorm!  Snow tonight may keep us from getting any in the ground tomorrow.

If you feel cold symptoms coming on, try brewing some garlic tea.  It’s a “tried and true” method around our place for getting rid of that cold quickly!  Bring a small kettle of water to a boil, turn off the heat, and add 4 to 6 smashed garlic cloves.  Steep for 20 minutes. Strain into a cup and drink it hot!  Chew the cooked cloves when you’re done with the tea for an added bonus!
