Hi everyone happy Thanksgiving. As some of you know we got into a nearly catastrophic accident on hwy 330 on our way back from the farm Tuesday. We are luckily ok and still have a vehicle. Please remember to use courtesy when driving on our roads up and down the mountain. There’s only one of you and it’s scary to realize how easily that can be taken away without warning.
Anyhow, Thanksgiving was a smashing success with loads of amazing dishes and good company.
I’m going to be eating salad and smoothies for a week. Our romaine lettuce,spring mix, and spinach are perfect for a salad base or use in a salad sandwich or pita pocket. Along with the wide selection of other veggies you can make one heck of a good salad.
This Thanksgiving we also baked a loaf of zucchini bread that had dried cherries, hemp seed and chia seeds, that bread was the bomb!
Orders can be picked up by customers at BLT’s Restaurant at 41799 Big Bear Blvd in Big Bear Lake, near Summit Boulevard, typically between 6 PM and 7 PM on Tuesdays on weeks that deliveries are scheduled, however traffic and weather conditions can cause delays during the winter months especially. Please message us before heading to pick up to avoid arriving too early or if the pick up location changes. Produce arrives in the farmer’s crates, so bring a container or bags to transfer into if you don’t want to hassle with returning the crate. A supply of reusable bags and boxes is available.
Direct delivery to the address you specify for shipping is available for an additional $5, which is selected at checkout.
Do not hesitate to contact F2M about delivery needs or order issues: 909-547-4163 (call or text). Email might not be seen quickly, so please call or text regarding time-sensitive issues.
Many of you probably have empty crates stacking up or stored from past orders, and if you find them they can be returned to BLT’s any time you pass by. If you are ordering regularly, the crates can be traded out at your next order. You are always welcome to transfer produce to a bag, box, or other container to avoid having the crate.
Visitors Who Will Return Home Soon…
If you have been a visitor in Big Bear during the covid19 stay-at-home order, please return your crate before you leave Big Bear. If you wish to be removed from the Farm2Mountain email updates, just let me know as well. You are always welcome to order if you return!

How to clean produce
To clean your produce, a few drops of natural dish soap in a sink of water will be enough to wash off anything lurking on your food. Thick-skinned produce can soak a few minutes, leafy greens just need a dip and swish, and thin-skinned produce can be dipped and wiped or soaked quickly. Rinse everything well. Vinegar can turn leafy greens black if it’s used as a veggie wash in too high a concentration, and it might not kill viruses. Soap-based cleaning products will strip the virus of its outer coating and kill it.
