From Carolyn at Butte Mountain Organic Farm:
This week has been beautiful, but . . . we need water!! The grass needs to be growning for the sheep, the snow needs to be covering the mountains for our water later. Do some rain dances, everyone!
This is the time for babies at the farm! Many varieties of seed are germinating and I'm sticking lots of cuttings. The sheep will soon be lambing, too. Soon I'll have more vegetable plants to sell so you can get your gardens going.

“A cook’s kitchen”
January 23 & 24
We are back to “normal” around here (healing) and looking forward to sharing some food!
This Sunday, Jan. 26, we are especially looking forward in helping create a menu of savory “tastes” to pair with 4 vintages of Yorba Barbera . . . the event being called “Sunday’s in the Library” with Ann and family at their tasting room.
The taste menu will feature a vast range in flavor components that go surprisingly well with this beautiful grape, and especially the Yorba Barbera. Look for Wild Salmon “Two Ways” Pate’ with fresh & smoked Salmon, Organic slow braised Pork Rillette w/ Wintery Spices, Wild Mushroom stuffed Ravioli (house made organic pasta) with a Fragrant Roast Tomato Coulis and marinated Sheep’s Milk Cheese Crostini. All this combined with delicious wine and an afternoon hanging out with Ann . . . can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon ourselves!
Seating is limited so call 267-8190 if interested. Also check on future “Sunday in the library” dates at Yorba’s tasting Room with different wine varietals paired with food as this is a continuing opportunity, planned for Sunday afternoons through the spring months ahead.
We are looking at seed packets, trying to envision a kitchen garden that will actually produce this year. We felt so fortunate to be at the receiving end of so many home garden bounties, and that in itself has inspired us immensely. Thank-you, all again & again! Speaking of which, we have some gorgeous persimmon’s from Sun-Earth-Energy/James Hackworth that will be blended in with the Puree’ of Butternut Squash Soup this week (delicious added sweetness.)
The Wild Petrale Sole comes from Fort Bragg, the free-range Chicken from Mary’s Chicken.
When ordering in these winter months to come, please let us know if you are intending to “dine in” so we can let both Yorba & Amador360 know what to anticipate in accommodating everyone! Both locations are comfortable, inviting and community driven (i.e. local fun!)
Hope to see you in at Yorba’s tasting room Thursday or at Amador360 on Friday! Thank-you and Bon Appetit!
