Vendor Updates

Welcome to the Hop Shop, our newest vendor.

Hop Shop Rabbitry is located in the city of Coshocton. We are a small family owned and operated rabbitry. It is operated by Rob and Jaimie Lohrman and our children. We are proud to now be involved with our Local Bounty to offer for sale USDA approved processed market rabbits starting on April 1st. We look forward to being able to serve our customers in the community.   Thank You, Rob Lohrman

Flying Pig Farm

This week we are busy readying seeds, potting soil, peat pots and fertilizer…all natural and chemical free of course! Soon there will be sprouts everywhere. Out of curiosity I rechecked our greenhouse space and we can easily fit 600 3″ peat pots. Hmmmm…which heirloom varieties to focus on this year? It’s always exciting! Since spring always gets busy we will begin to focus on shelf stable baked goods that can be delivered once a week. We will continue to supply all your favorite pies, scones and sweet treats! If you’d like to order bread, please use the order form in our booth and we will deliver on Tuesday morning. As always, thank you for shopping local!

Mullet Apiaries

We now have some baking honey available. That’s honey that can’t be considered “raw” because it has not only been strained, but also filtered and heated to 140 degrees, which means some of the enzymes are no longer present but it’s perfect for baking delicious goodies. Look for the glass jar with a little baker on the label. Of course, we still have all our raw honey products as well. Thank you for your business!

Bob’s Pickle Patch/ Verda’s Hens

Thanks to all who are buying the small eggs.  Since we have two more groups of young hens, we will continue to have pullet eggs as well as the regular size.  If there are small eggs left on Saturday, they will be 2 dozen for $3.75

How did we get such a name as “Bob’s Pickle Patch?”  It was our first year of serious gardening in a while.  I had just retired and had lots of time to work outdoors.  That year we had the most cucumbers ever.  We didn’t know what to do with them all.  The ladies in our church all had plenty from our patch to make pickles.  Never again did we grow so many, but the name stuck.  Actually, that first year it was Bob’s (in a)Pickle Patch.  Maybe we’ll have some good cukes again this year.
