Help us Support our Small Farmers

Dear Supporter,

This year was a banner year for Bucks County Foodshed Alliance (BCFA). With your help, we were able to make our Small Farm Grant program a reality, as well as continue to fund education, connection, and collaboration about our local food system. This annual appeal is again focused primarily on giving back to our small farmers through that program. A summary of the Grant Program as well as information on three grants awarded, is outlined here. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of 2019 so that we can do more to support Bucks County farmers.

Chipotle Butternut Squash Soup

This recipe will warm you and your family, heart and soul.  The chipotle peppers impart a slightly sweet and smoky flavor that adds interest and dimension without being overwhelming. Together with some of the adobo sauce, in which they come packed, they will add a little fire and kick, too.  You can decide how much.  Garnish each serving with a generous sprinkle of roasted pumpkin seeds (‘pepitas’ in Mexico) to add some crunch.  And if you want to impress, drizzle a swirl of cream and a fresh cilantro.  You’ll dazzle their taste-buds; you don’t have to tell them it’s a superfood of antioxidants, when they ask for more.  It’s a great starter or pair with a salad of fresh greens, avocado, craisins in an olive oil/blue cheese vinaigrette and some crusty whole grain bread for a perfect meal.
