Local Bounty celebrates two-year anniversary this weekend

| October 10, 2013

local bountyLocal Bounty Shoppers – Many thanks for being a huge part in helping us achieve two years as a business. We look forward to feeding you, your family, friends and neighbors for years to come.

Here’s what some of our vendors will have in the market this week:

Carson House Farm

We still have some tastes of summer from our garden available: watermelon and bell peppers. Our Dahlias are also still gorgeous, so we have more of those in the store this week. Fall decorative items straight from our farm are also plentiful: pumpkins, gourds, and corn shocks.

Keene Creek Farm

This week Marissa made up lots of Rosemary Artisan Bread and Whole Wheat Pizza Dough mixes. They were a hot item last market week/weekend. We hope those of you who bought them enjoyed them. Our pork supply is holding steady. Right now the products we have available are: ham loaf (oven ready), brats (fresh, mild Italian, Cajun and cheese), little piggies, breakfast blend sausage (bulk and patties), hot dogs and smoked sausage links. All of our smoked products (ham loaf and sausage right now) have been smoked in a wood-fired smoke house. They have a rich smoky flavor; screaming comfort food. One of our customers said she baked up a ham loaf and topped it with her hot pepper relish. We tried the same thing this week and it was divine.

Mill Creek Homestead

With the crisp autumn weather upon us, you are sure to appreciate the return of my Pumpkin Spice soap just right for fall. It boasts real pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice! While it sounds good enough to eat, you will find this bar is also very nourishing for your skin. It has shea butter and cocoa butter to really pamper you as the days turn cool. You can get it with a fall themed rubber duckie embedded in it, or for a more grown up bar of soap, look for the rich brown and cream swirl pattern on top. Get them while they last!

Rosemary’s Homemade Goods

Rosemary packed her shelves yesterday because she’s having knee replacement surgery today. So, her goods will be at the market today, but they will not be restocked daily like they usually are. While we will all miss her baked goods while she recovers, we hope she takes the appropriate time she needs to heal. She’ll be back in the full swing of things as soon as she can and we’ll keep you all updated.

Strawberry Hill Farm

The welcome rain we received last weekend has perked things up in the gardens and will keep them growing until frost (and some crops beyond). The greens are doing well. Today we’ll have more kale, romaine lettuce, and arugula at the store. We’re also putting yellow summer squash and zucchini (yes, they’re still growing!) and kohlrabi in the cooler. We’re restocking our strawberry jam and bringing fresh free-range eggs, as well.

Thousand Hill Acres LLC

The past week has been pretty productive despite the rains! We have began our Winter preparations. The winter pasture for our pigs is under way. We are fencing in an additional 4-5 acres of prime nut bearing hardwoods for them. The cows are doing great and still have some great looking calves at their sides. Please check out our products (On the top two shelves of the tall upright freezer) for something to add to your weekly meal line ups. Also, we caught a beautiful picture of a rainbow this week! It can bee seen on our Facebook page. www.facebook.com/thousandhillacres

Wholesome Valley Farm

Our cheddar cheese has been a popular item at the market in the past few weeks. It’s made out of our Guernsey cow milk and is aged a minimum of 60 days before it reaches the market shelf. Put it in soups, scrambled eggs, or just enjoy it straight up. Don’t forget, our Harvest Fest is this weekend at our farm. You can find more information on our Web site. There will be fun for the entire family.

Windy Hill Berry Farm

This has been a busy week of clearing the fields of leftover bushes and planting cover crops. This will supply the nutrients for next year’s produce, allow us to grow our plants without the use of commercial fertilizers and also help prevent soil erosion. We have also been very busy  in the hoop house. We planted kale, Swiss chard,  premium green lettuce mix, turnips, and red beets. Believe it or not, we are still getting blackberries as big as our thumbs. (However, the average frost day in this area is Oct. 11 so hurry into Local Bounty before they’re gone.) We will also have Concord grapes in quarts, 2½-, 5- and 10-pound boxes…the perfect quantities to make a batch of grape jelly. In addition, we will have herbs such as rosemary, sage, & marjoram, along with free-range eggs, English muffins, mixed greens, sunchokes (click for more info), and vine ripened tomatoes.

New Vendors

We are in the process of talking to two new vendors. Keep reading your updates for info on their products. We’re so very excited to get them on board!

Many thanks!
