Holiday 2014 New Productions and Promotions

Hello from Ithaca!

Holiday 2014 Promotions and New Products, web

With the full on arrival of fall and the icy whispers of winter that we see on roofs and car tops at dawn our food desires lean towards the rich and hearty… Or sugar laden cupcakes? Either works for us. The beautiful creations you see above were made by our customer and neighbor Gimme Coffee’s bakeshop. These cupcakes were a holiday party exclusive but stop by any of their upstate locations year round for sweet treats made with Regional Access products. Oh and the best coffee anywhere of course.

On the new product front… Vulto Creamery! Their Miranda in particular was one of the best and most innovative New York State made cheeses we have had the pleasure of trying this year. Washed with locally made absinthe the little buttons are an absolute must for your holiday cheese case.

We are trying out a new truly local turkey offering this year from Good Life Farm in addition to our usual Stonewood Farm Vermont raised birds. What makes these turkeys special? Let Melissa Madden from Good Life tell you:

Turkeys… at the Good Life, we believe in 100% organic feed, constant pasture rotation and happy, healthy animals. All animals and plants work together at our farm, and the turkeys carry this to the extreme- they tend the young orchard trees, fall-fertilize both trees and asparagus, and bring their unique liveliness to the farm every day. We stand for small farms, humane animal husbandry and organic, ecological agriculture, and we believe our turkeys really show this to best effect!

If you have any questions about Good Life Farm or Stonewood Farm turkeys you can call Anna at 607-319-5150 ext #14 or email anna@regionalaccess.net Order Monday for same week delivery from now through Christmas. Turkeys will ship frozen to ensure shelf life.

October Promotions and New Products

Hello from Ithaca!

October Promotions and New Products, low res

Fall is here no doubt about it. One night recently dipped all the way to 34 degrees and sent the geese aloft and the squirrels racing about with a new found sense of urgency. A wonderful stretch of mid 70’s days and sunshine since has not kept us from thinking soups and cider. The potato soup above has heavy cream from Pittsford Farms Dairy and a touch of smoked gouda from Jakes Gouda to turn an everyday crockpot event into the divine.

Red Jacket Orchards  has been harvesting their NY grown apples as fast as they can and are ready with seasonal discounts in hand. If you prefer to simmer on the spot, ask your sales rep for 1# of mulling spices from Frontier to get you through the winter.

On the new product front… We are added a gluten free rice pasta from the Italian producer Riso de Pasta. There are so many certifications on the bag, from Kosher to Organic to Non-GMO Project Verified you just might have to learn Italian to catch them all. We picked up their 4 bestselling SKU’s for you to try.

And there is only a one page reminder included but Turkey Season is upon us… Order forms will be available in the next couple of days but we have posted pricing and order deadlines from our long time partners at Stonewood Farm for you to consider in the meantime. And don’t worry we will do email reminders over the next few weeks too.
