Vendor Updates

 

Bob’s Pickle Patch/ Verda’s Hens

We will be bringing in baked goods on Thursday this week: sourdough bread, wheat bread, and some cookies. Thank you to all who have been buying the sourdough bread. It really does take over 24 hours to make because of the slow rise you get with natural yeast, but all that great flavor is worth the wait. We will also be bringing in more eggs from our “roaming hens.” Thanks for shopping at Local Bounty.

Strawberry Hill Farm

Wow, we’ve been having some heavy thunderstorms lately. After the one last Friday, many of our plants in our gardens were leaning, but they seem to have recovered now. We have replenished our eggs and our produce at Local Bounty: romaine, salad mix, green onions, beets, and arugula. Arugula, or “rocket,” as it’s called in Europe, is a zippy green from the mustard family. It tastes great in salads, on sandwiches, or as a tasty, nutritious pizza topping. Simply wilt the leaves on top of the pizza as you take it out of the oven. Mmmm! Arugula also makes a delicious pesto. Arugula can be cooked lightly. Use as you would spinach: in sautés, stir-fries, or added to soups—cooking it quickly.

 

Keene Creek Farm

We are just starting to run low on a few of your favorite cuts of pork, bacon and ham loaf in particular. Our next batch of hogs won’t be ready for butcher until late September/early October. So we ask for your patience as we “fatten up” this next batch. In the meantime, we still have a big selection of brats: Cajun, beer, fresh bratwurst, and mild Italian. Our marinated pork chops are holding steady. But with grilling season here, they may not last too much longer. Thanks as always for your continued support. Our family is truly grateful.

Mullet Apiaries
It’s a tough time for the girls right now with not many plants blooming out there that they can access and the rain washing out the nectar from what is. But the strong hives will make it through, maybe with a little help from the beekeepers. And we still have plenty of honey for those summer recipes! Here’s a summer salad idea: cook up a cup of quinoa and a cup of millet, add your favorite veggies such as asparagus, red pepper and peas, fold in a dressing of lemon juice, honey from Mullet Apiaries, sunflower oil from Sunsational, chopped garlic, and basil. Salt to taste, chill and serve. Nutritious and delicious!

 

As Always Thank You For Your Support!
