For us, summer is all about moving outward, opening our hearts and participating in a little loving indulgence. Our summer shares are meant to invoke perfect days spent roaming the woods and rivers with friends and sweet summer nights huddled around a smoky grill or campfire.
Summer brings an increase in movement, interaction and the exchange of energy. We open out into the world, just like the sweet flowers and the busy bees, we are buzzing with color, sound, light, and potential. To support all of this movement and activity we need to make sure that our bodies are well rested, fully nourished and lavished with loving attention. Our summer shares will make sure you have plenty of delicious treats to share with friends and that your body and mind can keep up with the hustle and bustle.
Fermented Blueberry + Lemon Verbena Soda – This soda will definitely have you coming back for more. For us, this soda captures the essence of summer: fresh organic blueberries paired with the bright and uplifting flavor of lemon verbena sipped over ice on warm summer nights. This soda can be drunk neat or paired with your favorite alcohol for a tasty cocktail. Fermented sodas are best drunk sooner rather then later as they can loose their fizz, or become over-carbonated if left to linger in the bottle. Be sure to store this soda in your refrigerator until opening. 32 oz bottle.
Summer Greens Pesto – This delightful pesto blends the best greens of summer. Mixing spicy arugula, tender kale, and tangy parsley, we don’t think you’ll be able to put this pesto down. Cleansing to the palate and helping to stimulate digestion, our mixture is both healthful and delicious. All of the greens are grown on our farm in Sandy and we’ve added pine nuts, organic sunflower seeds, organic olive oil, parmesan cheese, organic lemon juice and sea salt. 6 oz jar.
Cabecou (Raw Goat Milk Cheese) – The recipe for this semi-soft goat cheese comes from the Perigod region of France. It means ‘little goat’ in French and is traditionally served at room temperature. We cover our cheese with organic olive oil infused with lavender, rosemary and thyme. We use raw goat’s milk from our farm and herbs from our garden. We think this cheese is best eaten with crackers and shared with friends. 8 oz jar.
Pickled Garlic Scapes – Garlic scapes make a tangy and delicious pickle, perfect on sandwiches, salads, or served as an appetizer with cheese and crackers. Our raw fermented pickles give you a dose of probiotic power while also providing the antiviral and immune boosting properties of garlic. The organic garlic scapes for these tasty treats come from our friends Katie and Rowan of Fiddlehead Farm in Corbett, OR. We’ve added carrots for a little hint of sweet, pickling spices to enhance the flavor, and thinly sliced organic lemons for a refreshing hit of citrus. 16 oz jar.
Sprouted Seed Crackers – These crackers are the perfect companion for long days spent hiking in the woods. Packed with protein and fiber they are a great companion to our goat’s cheese and pesto. We start by soaking and sprouting organic flax and sunflower seeds. To this base we’ve added wild crafted nettles from the woods around our home and hand harvested seaweed from the Oregon coast.
Garlic + Hot Pepper Honey – This warming honey is here to help you sweat! Sometimes all this summer heat can leave us feeling a little worn, but warming foods can help us to cool off by activating our internal AC. This honey is just a tad spicy but not overwhelmingly so. It’s also a great way to ward off any summer colds and flus. Take as a preventative in warm tea each morning or when you feel like you’re needing a little hop in your step. 6 oz jar.
Everyday Spray – Our Everyday Spray is your go-to remedy for every season. Conveniently sized to fit in your bag or backpack, this amazing blend of infused and essential oils works as a bug spray, wound spray, hand cleanser, burn soother and even as a perfume or deodorant. First ,we infuse organic sweet almond and olive oils with calendula and yarrow grown on our farm. Calendula is an amazing skin healer and works wonders on cuts, scrapes, bruises and burns. Yarrow is one of our favorite first aid herbs for its antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. To this base we’ve added a blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils. This blend of oils had a fantastic smell that acts as a bug spray and doubles as a perfume. These oils are also antibacterial, anti-fungal, and soothing to tired muscles, cuts and bruises. We can’t get enough of this spray and we never leave home without it! 2 oz bottle.
Grounding Elixir – This elixir will help your feet stay on the ground during the busy summer months. Summer is the time for river trips, bike rides and late night dance parties. To keep your nervous system healthy during this active time, we’ve combined milky oat tops, tulsi basil and lemon balm into a sweet and delicious tonic. Tulsi basil helps to keep your heart open, lifting the spirit and soothing any ragged edges. Lemon balm and milky oat tops are nourishing to the nervous system, so you can remain calm and centered through the busy summer months. 2 oz bottle.
Charcoal + Lemon Grass Soap – Our soaps are made with all organic palm oil, coconut oil, olive oil and organic goat's milk from our farm. We use the traditional cold process method for crafting our soaps resulting in a truly superior bar. All bars are hand-cut and hand-packaged.
Fresh Flower Bouquet – The flowers in this delightful bouquet were grown and lovingly harvested at Rockwood Urban Farm in Portland, OR. We’ve used these fresh flowers to craft a unique and beautiful bouquet for each summer share. Flowers are a wonderful way to brighten your living space, bringing the beauty and fragrance of the sweet outdoors into your home. Put them somewhere prominent in your home, breath in deeply and feel the gratitude that comes with the beauty of summer
