Local Bounty update

| March 8, 2016

Last weekend we had some out of state guests at our house. For breakfast I cooked some of the bacon from Hand Hewn Farm. We all agreed it was delicious. Our guests said that they had never eaten bacon “cured” with celery powder instead of the usual nitrates and nitrites. Local Bounty Coshocton is a really unique market where you can find delicious, healthy, locally grown food. At Local Bounty you may also get to meet and talk face to face with the farmers or producers of your favorite items. It truly is a one of a kind place to shop.

Upcoming events

Vendor Updates

There are not many vendor updates this week.  It’s time to be outdoors getting ready for spring production. However, there are still lots of goodies in the store.

Loveridge House

Hello Local Bounty Shoppers,

Tom and I were just over to Local Bounty on Friday and restocked our shelves. Our nut butters are full of the healthy fats and so many key ingredients, you can’t go wrong with one of out nut butters. Did you know that cashew butters secret weapon is magnesium (26 percent of your daily dose in 2 Tbsp) which helps your muscles to relax and keeps your mood on an even keel. You’ll also get zinc and selenium, which strength your immune system. So hurry on over to Local Bounty and pick up your healthy treats.

Flying Pig Farm

We’re getting ready to start our heirloom veggie plants soon. I can’t wait to be outside in the sunshine this week! Lots to do around the farm with spring right around the corner. This week we have white and wheat bread, garlic herb rolls, Texas sheet cake and blackberry, cherry and strawberry-rhubarb pie. We’ll bring fresh bread and more pie varieties on Thursday!

Bob’s Pickle Patch — Verda’s Hens

We will have eggs at Local Bounty on Thursday this week.

Our first flock of new hens that we got last September are producing well now. We have three more groups that are still growing up, not old enough to lay eggs – yet another way to describe “slow food.” It takes about four months to raise a hybrid chick to a laying hen, and about 5 or 6 months for the heritage breeds. And the whole time they are growing up and not laying eggs, they drink lots of water and eat lots of food!

As always, thanks for your support,

Local Bounty Coshocton, Inc.
