Vendor Updates

Simple Products

AKA the syrup guys have recently stocked the store with 2 of our newest products. Dry rubs made with maple sugar, herbs and spices with as many things that we grow in the product as possible. Great on meats seafood and roasted vegetables. Our newest product is a line of organic puffed spelt cereals coated lightly with some of our most popular syrup varieties. The spelt is from Stutzman Farms in Holmes County. Currently we have Strawberry, Salted Caramel and Maple Cinnamon. Kids will love them and they are soon much better for all of us than Captain Crunch or Coco Puffs. Pick some up and let us know what you think.

Mullet Apiaries

This weekend was a good one for bees in Coshocton County. Nineteen new beekeepers were introduced to the fascinating world of beekeeping at the Coshocton County Beekeepers Association Beginning Beekeeping school. New educated beekeepers means more bees, healthier bees, which means better pollination in the county and lots more delicious honey! This week we also learned of a website that, if you are interested in learning about sustainable agriculture and local foods (Of course you are; you’re a Local Bounty supporter!) and have some time to browse, can be really informative. It’s the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations – check it out: http://www.fao.org/home/en/    Did you see we now have a smaller 8 oz. glass jar of honey available to those who prefer glass? Come on in and have a look, and while you’re there, see what great products all our vendors have for you. Thanks for your patronage and think spring!

Pink Elephant Coffee Roasters

Good news for all you coffee drinkers! We have five new coffees coming your way soon.

Here’s the new lineup of fresh coffee harvests of some of your favorite beans as well as a few new offerings: Honduras San Marcos, Tanzania Peaberry, Guatemala Swiss Water Process Decaf, Colombia Supremo, and Organic Sumatra. Look for these making an appearance on the shelves in the next few weeks!

Young Farms

Finally!!! Beef will be back this week! We were the lucky pick at the processor for a random state quality control test. The state inspector took samples of our beef back to the Columbus lab to run tests to make sure that our beef was clear of any banned substances and safe for consumption. In the meantime we had to leave all the beef at the processor until it was cleared. We finally got word at the end of last week that we were good to go and we are going to have the freezer re-stocked for the opening of the market Tuesday. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

Bob’s Pickle Patch/ Verda’s Hens

We will bring eggs to Local Bounty on Thursday this week.

A special thank you to all our customers who return egg cartons (and other containers) to Local Bounty.  It really helps keep costs down. And helps us stay green.
