Vendor Updates

Loveridge House

Hello everyone,
We are the proprietors of Loveridge House Nut Butters. Our names are Tom and Susie Fish and we live in Mount Vernon, Ohio. We make and sell peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter, and smokey almond butters. They contain only the ground nuts with nothing else added. They make great healthy snacks paired with apples, bananas, pears, pretzels or can be used in baking or in smoothies. We just restocked our shelves at Local Bounty and hope that you’ll give try them. I’ve enclosed a favorite smoothie recipe which is so simple. Give it a try.

Strawberry Almond Butter Smoothie
4 ice cubes
1 cup of strawberries
1 cup of unsweetened plain almond milk
2 tablespoons of almond butter
Put ice cubes in a blender and blend until crushed. Add berries( or a banana), milk, and almond butter and blend until smooth. This makes 2 servings.

Thank you for shopping at Local Bounty!
Tom and Susie Fish

Editor’s note:  The almond butter is so delicious you can just eat it with a spoon right out of the jar (or you can skip the spoon).  Also good in green shakes.

Flying Pig Farm

This week we have blueberry scones, cinnamon raisin bread, wheat bread, white bread, croutons, and blackberry, blueberry and cherry pies. We’ll bring in fresh bread and more pies for Thurs morning! Have you tried our soup and rice mixes? It’s an easy way to make a quick side dish or crockpot meal!

Grandmasons’ Pastured Poultry

Just a quick update on the availability of turkey for the next few months.    The hatcheries do not supply turkeys from September until March because of low sales and weather.    Since I just started selling turkey through Local Bounty late last year I didn’t have a good idea of how much stock I would need to carry me through the winter and so have run out.   Whatever is in the store is all there is.   I do have turkeys ordered and will be picking them up next month.   They will be ready to process in the last half of May.  I will keep everyone posted on progress –  sorry for the temporary outage, please be patient.   The good news is that I will be going NON GMO with this lot of turkeys.   The feed contains no medication or antibiotics, and, of course,  the turkeys are out on pasture every day.   I am looking forward to serving your needs with a better product.

Keene Creek Farm

We look forward to stocking our freezer with more pork products soon, including salt, pepper, sage sausage, pork chops, and more. Bacon and ham loaf will be a little while longer though. They have to take a 10-day nap in the smokehouse before they’re ready. We will keep you posted on their arrival.

We weaned a couple litters of piglets this week. It is amazing how quickly they grow. Two more sows are going to farrow in the weeks to come. Lots of babies…! We are so happy to have finally accomplished a birth to butcher farm. All of the pork we now provide has been bred, born and raised on the farm. Thanks for helping us achieve this goal by buying up our products.

Mullet Apiaries

Loved the weather this past weekend. Dick was able to get into the hives and check things out while “the girls” were able to take a bathroom break. We have plenty of delicious honey on our shelf for your eating pleasure. Sunday evening, we had a lovely salad of Dale’s beautiful lettuce, one of our last winter carrots, sliced hard boiled egg from one of our great egg vendors, and some dressing made with honey, last summer’s raspberry vinegar, olive oil, and a pinch of sea salt. A fresh taste to make us thing spring! You can substitute red wine vinegar if you like and add your favorite herb.

Bee fact: the varroa mite, a bee parasite, was first discovered in the 1960s in Japan and Russia and spread to the U.S. in the mid 1980s. These mites have been responsible for many hive failures and have changed the entire beekeeping industry and how beekeepers attend their hives.

Bob’s Pickle Patch/ Verda’s Hens

We will be bringing eggs in to Local Bounty on Wednesday this week.  Thanks to all who are buying the small pullet eggs.  I call these the low calorie “diet” eggs. If you bake with them, use two in place of one large egg. We have lots of new hens just starting to lay eggs.  The eggs will get bigger as the hens get older.
