The forsythia are finally showing off their fabulous bevy of blossoms, and the nesting waterfowl are patiently awaiting  their hatchlings. It's true -- Spring has finally made her late entrance! What a perfect time to celebrate Earth Day. We're going to honor it all month long at ACORN FARM with specials on a few things that are healthy for us and for the Earth. Take a look!

With Spring comes spring cleaning, and we've got just the thing to help you out! E-CLOTHS are cleaning cloths for all sorts of different uses. What makes them different from any other cloth? They allow you to clean all surfaces without any chemicals, cleaning products, or harsh detergents. Just use a little hot water to safely clean your windows, countertops, wood floors, stainless steel and more! An E-CLOTH removes over 99% of the bacteria from your household surfaces! They can be conveniently washed right in your washing machine. April is a great time to give them a try----in honor of Earth Day we'll be offering 20% OFF all E-CLOTH products for the entire month!

Do something nice for your family this month and take advantage of our VITAMIX sale---$50 OFF our price on any of our VITAMIX machines!  That means a full $150 OFF the MSRP! Turn fresh fruits and vegetables into delicious, soups, smoothies, beverages, sorbets, and more at just the touch of a button!  These machines are made in America and built to last!

Our summer classes are filling up incredibly fast but we've still got a little room in Glamping with Grostick -- a superb grill class that is going to feature some great, fun food! Check it out below!

Ladies Night Out is a big favorite in Milford, and it only happens twice each year! This spring we'll be exploring an Earth Day/Green Theme with some wonderful products to go along with that topic.  We'll be serving some of our favorite treats that we carry in the store, and highlighting some of the products that we're proud to carry because they reduce waste or are healthier for you and the planet!  We hope you'll be a part of the fun!
Saturday, April 30 - ALL DAY!
April 30th will be our second Red Bag Day of 2016. RED BAGS are given to our Kitchen Cash members after they've filled their first Kitchen Cash Card. Whenever there are five Saturdays in a month, you're invited to come in on the fifth Saturday and bring your RED BAG to get 20% off most things in the store.  If you're already a Kitchen Cash Club Member, we really want you to have a Red Bag, so visit the store and we'll upgrade you. Not a member? Come and sign up! It's completely free!  Fill out a Kitchen Cash Club Card; it stays in the store so you don't have to remember to bring it with you each time. Every time you make a purchase, we record it on your card. Once you've made purchases on six visits, we total the dollar amounts, take 10% of your total, and return it to you as a gift card to use on absolutely anything you want in the store! What's the catch? There isn't one!

We've done a take on Detroit's restaurant scene, now we'd like to do an updated take on old Detroit favorites---the foods we all remember from our youth -- from Vernors Ginger Ale--back when it was only bottled in Detroit, to the beloved Coney dog. We'll give you a little history on some of these classics as well. Do come along for the ride as we take a virtual cruise down Woodward. We'll be grillin' up some Detroit greatness! We'll start the evening off with...
  • A Boston Cooler Cocktail - No--it's not named after a town in Massachusetts - come and get the whole story!  Some Vernors, a little bourbon and smoked ice will tantalize your taste buds.
  • Smoked Whitefish Flatbread - artfully topped with fennel, orange and red onion relish
  • Maurice Salad - Everybody remembers Hudson's and their famous salad.  We're going to summer-it-up a bit by putting a little smoky sear on the turkey and ham---this is a grill class, after all!
  • Modern Motor City Coney - We'll be grilling the beef before it makes its way into the coney sauce. We'll be serving our coneys with Mc Clure's Pickle Relish. Hooray for the hometown! 
  • Smoked Faygo Rock 'n' Rye BBQ-Glazed Baby Back Ribs - That's a mouthful! Don't have a big ol' smokehouse in your backyard? No worries! We'll show you how to do it with a great little tabletop smoker.
  • Bumpy Cake - If you grew up here, you probably remember walking to Sanders with your mom and indulging in a piece of bumpy cake. Nostalgia on a dessert plate!

If you sort of like to camp, but hate to leave your brulee torch at home, you just might be a glamper.  If you can't go a week without the perfectly thin slices produced on a mandolin, you might be a glamper. If you find yourself flipping crepes over a campfire . . . you're definitely a glamper -- so hurry and sign up for this class! Seriously - this class is for anyone who appreciates great food -- whether you like to camp or just serve a nice dinner on the deck! Here's the menu:
  • Toas-tite Campfire Sandwiches  - Three different delights for the gourmand to enjoy!
  • BBQ Pulled Pork on Cheddar & Scallion Cornbread
  • Tuna Melts with Havarti
  • Roast Beef with Mustard & Beer-Braised Onions on a Hoagie Roll
  • Grilled Carrot Salad - with cauliflower and french beans in a Tarragon Brown Butter Vinaigrette.
  • Mini Red Hasselback Potatoes - delicious potatoes, cut into a fan of sorts, topped with goat cheese, bacon & roasted garlic and and cooked until crisp on the outside, tender on the inside.  
  • Cast Iron Trout - prepared to the perfection that only cast iron can produce.  We'll finish it with a little pancetta and tomato sauce.
  • Campfire S'Mores - Oh, yes!   We'll let Chef Grostick do his gourmet spin on these.  Don't expect the same S'mores you had around your troop's campfire.

The Olympics are coming! The Olympics are coming! While not many of us are going to be traveling to Brazil to watch the beloved games, we'd like to honor the host country with a fabulous spread of Brazilian favorites, full of bright and bold flavors.  
  • Brazilian Lemonade - Start the evening cooling off with a simple Brazilian lemonade.  Sweet, fresh, and made with, surprisingly enough, limes!
  • Salada de Couve com Manga - A salad with some great brazilian staples - mango and kale, with the crunch of pine nuts
  • Frango Churrasco - Chicken thighs, bathed in a perfectly seasoned marinade with garlic, lemon, and coriander, then skewered and grilled to a heavenly crispness.
  • Brazilian Pork Ribs - Toto, we're not in Kansas City anymore. Enjoy a distinctively different Brazilian sauce with soy, lime and parsley, a good dose of garlic and some unexpected herbs.  A slow-simmer turns these into juicy moist ribs before they're finished on the grill for a fantastic char. You're about to experience a new "go-to" rib recipe for your repertoire! 
  • Grilled Flank Steak with Root Vegetable Chips & Brazilian-Style Chimichurri - Enjoy some of the same flavors you'd find in the Caribbean islands but without the heat. The marinade carries the aroma of cumin, coriander, and lime and the chimichurri adds a beautiful freshness to the dish. Add a little crunch with the chips to finish it off and you'll be ready to fly the Brazilian flag.
  • Pudim - a lovely custard-like flan served with glazed and grilled pineapple and other tropical delights!
