Local Bounty update

| October 3, 2013

This morning (Thursday, Oct. 3) starts our new market hours. Starting today we will be open for you to start stocking up on market goodies on Thursdays at 10 a.m. and Saturdays we will now close at 1 p.m. (so be sure to stop in during your morning errands).

Here’s what our vendors have on tap for you this week:

Keene Creek Farm

This week’s farm work has included resuming a little work on the barn that has sat unfinished since Rowdi’s accident in July. We also ran some more electric fence around the entire pasture so we can let all the piggies (even the little ones) roam without worrying about them escaping. Greens are growing steady in the hoop house. We will have spinach at LB this morning along with some more jalapenos and fresh rosemary. Our pork freezer has been restocked the best we can. Brats (available in Mild Italian, fresh, Cajun and cheese) are all available now, but the supply is dwindling pretty quickly. Our hog dogs are selling well – they’re great over a campfire or on the grill for a quick dinner. The packs are large, but can be kept in the freezer (just take out what you need one meal at a time and keep the rest frozen). Many thanks for your support of our farm and the entire LB market.

Maple Hollow Farms

Pumpkins. Miniature Indian corn. Gourds. Our farm has everything you need to decorate for fall. We also welcome you to come out to our Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin Patch. Pumpkins are $4 each. Our farm is located on US 36 beside Unusual Junction.

Strawberry Hill Farm

Cool weather crops are coming on at the farm, enjoying the chilly nights and dew-drenched mornings. The greens have been growing well, but some rain will do them good. Today we’re bringing more romaine lettuce to Local Bounty, plus arugula, the more of the mesclun greens mix, and a few dozen eggs. And of course you can always find our strawberry jam.

Thousand Hill Acres LLC
With our new hours also comes two new products. We are happy to announce that we now have MSG FREE BACON and pound packages of ground Italian Sausage! The sausage is great for grilling, pizza topping, pasta and much more. Mark will be working at Local Bounty on Thursday from 10-2. Stop by to see him and ask him about the our happenings around the farm or our dedication to offering our quality GMO free pastured products.

Wholesome Valley Farm

In addition to offering our dairy products at Local Bounty this week, we are gearing up for our annual Harvest Fest at our farm in Wilmot. Take the beautiful drive up to Wilmot on Saturday, October 12 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can take farm tours on foot or by wagon. We will be making apple butter and there will be plenty of activities for kids.

Windy Hill Berry Farm

NEW ITEMS! Concord grapes (whose juice is said to be as beneficial for the heart as red wine)…red beets…blackberry jam…and Bon Jour blackberry jam (enhanced with Triple Sec liqueur). Potassium, magnesium, fiber, phosphorus, iron; vitamins A, B & C; beta-carotene, and folic acid are but a few of the many nutrients that can be found in beets and beet greens (which we are keeping attached for you to enjoy in so many ways). In addition, beets are a high source of energy. At the same time they are low in calories and high in sugar (although the sugar is released into your system gradually, as opposed to cookies and candy). They also contain trytophan, which relaxes the mind and creates a sense of well-being, similar to chocolate. Very few foods found in the natural world are as beneficial as beets. We’ll also be bringing more of our own strawberries, blackberries, rhubarb, English muffins, fancy mixed salad greens, and tomatoes.

As always, thanks for your support of all of our vendors.
