Local Bounty Update

| January 23, 2014

COSHOCTON – Local Bounty Supporters: This was an important week for those involved with Local Bounty in any way. At our annual meeting we made some important decisions about market business and elected a new board of directors.

We decided to proceed with a non-work option for our vendors and to hire a part-time employee for the market. Up to this date, we have been 100% volunteer run. But given the expansion of the market and potential for even more growth, we have the need to hire a part-time market manager. The new board of directors will meet next week to come up with a game plan for moving forward with both of these decisions. But, thank you for supporting us and getting us to this point. It is a great thing.

To introduce our new board of directors:

President: Mark Reed
Vice President/Market Manager: Amy Shaw

Secretary: Robin Mullet

Treasurer: Katie Hultz

Market Manager: Marissa Mullett

Consumer Advocate: Rachel Hall

 

Now, onto our vendor updates…!

Hall – RB – Hill
This week we will have Italian Bread Rolls and Breadsticks. Also Focaccia on Friday, Cracked Pepper and Italian Herb! Baked Naan Chips would be delicious with hummus or your favorite dip (try Keene Creek Farm’s dip mixes). As always our Wine Jellies are available! Thank you.

 

Keene Creek Farm

We are awaiting a call from our processor to tell us our next round of pork product is ready to pick up. As soon as we hear from them we will get peppered bacon, Canadian bacon, brats (mild Italian and cheese) and little piggies back onto your table and into your bellies. We are also almost out of lard. But, we also have some of that at the processor we just need to pick up. Last week our ham balls were at hit at the market, thanks for trying them and thanks for enjoying our farm’s products as much as we do.

Mill Creek Homestead

Our soaps and healing salve were restocked this week. The salve and lotion bars are a must to help heal your dry, cracked skin this time of year.


Comfort Food Cook-Off:
February 1 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

We are hosting a Comfort Food Cook-Off for our customers to show us (and others) how creative they are using ingredients they pick up at Local Bounty. There will be two categories for adults: sweet and savory. We’re having a junior competition too (any kid under the age of 16 is eligible to enter). If you’d like details on entering a dish, e-mail [email protected] or respond to this e-mail and we will send all the info your way. To help us best plan, entries are due by January 25. Registration forms are also available at Local Bounty. There will be prizes and bragging rights for the winners.

Cookie Decorating Class with Katie Hultz: Sunday, February 9 time TBD

Want to learn how to decorate cookies like a pro for Valentine’s Day? Here’s your chance. Katie Hultz, our professional (but don’t ask her, she’ll deny it) cookie baker/decorator, is willing to share some tips and techniques (including how to apply edible transfers) with you in an upcoming class. Class space is limited, so be sure to register as soon as you know you want to participate. Please, no participants under the age of 15. Class fee is $20 and will include cookies and some decorating supplies.
