Local Bounty update

| March 13, 2014

Good morning Local Bounty Shoppers: There is a (frigid) chill in the air this morning, but tomorrow will be more like spring for sure. We have lots of updates this week from our vendors, so let’s cut to the chase:

Ashcraft Acres

Locally grown lamb has been restocked and Elaine will be serving up some Irish lamb stew on Friday from 10 am. to 2 p.m. If you’ve never tried lamb before, here’s your opportunity to give it shot.

Flying Pig Farm

Our healthy granola is back! Made with whole grain puffed wheat, millet and rice…and honey (no processed sugar here), snack time is full of the good stuff. Favorite flavors include Strawberry Walnut, Blueberry Almond, Apple Cinnamon, Banana Walnut, Cranberry Almond and plain Cinnamon. Great with milk, plain as a snack or top yogurt, ice cream or fruit crisp…the possibilities are endless. We’re also excited to offer a variety of dried pasta in the near future! We’ll keep you posted.


Spring will soon be here! This week stop by to get our French Boule. Did you know you can use this bread for sandwiches, grilled cheese, french toast, garlic bread, croutons and more? We will also have Deli Rye which would make a killer Ruben. Garlic Naan will be back on Friday. Granolas are still in stock and as always wine jelly is in.  Stay tuned for my new item next week, herbal tea. 🙂

Keene Creek Farm

This week we have a couple of new pork products for you to try. The first is a pepper sausage. It is a tasty bulk sausage with a peppery kick, we tried some from our processor a couple of weeks ago and it makes up into some mean sausage gravy. We also have ham steaks which are cured smoked hams that have been sliced into about 1 in “steaks.” You can toss them on the grill or bake them in the oven. The ham steaks were smoked in a wood-fired smokehouse (just like our bacon, smoked sausages and Canadian bacon). The rich, natural smoky flavor is over the top. We have plenty of the ever-popular peppered bacon, fresh bratwursts, Stan’s special blend sausage, butter and garlic marinated loin chops…well, you get the point. Our freezer is fully stocked.

Mill Creek Homestead

Only six more weeks and we’ll be back on American soil. We’re having a great adventure, but have to admit we’ll be happy to be back home again. 🙂 Since we are so remote here, we have had a lot of down time in the evening, giving me some time to think about expanding our product line. I’m excited to have found a candle wax that is produced without genetically modified materials and is pesticide and herbicide free. If all goes as planned, candles will be showing up on our shelf. (Let me know what scents you would like to see). I also have learned about a new preservative that is derived from radishes.  It is accepted by ECOCERT as a preservative in certified organic cosmetics. I’m looking forward to experimenting with it when I get home and introducing some new goodies. I probably have more ideas than time, so I’ll be looking to you all for direction. See you soon…

Pink Elephant Coffee Roasters

Our coffee beans are now available at Local Bounty. Pink Elephant Coffee Roasters began as a search for a better cup of coffee in Holmes County. Coffee tastes best when consumed within two weeks of roasting and within minutes of being ground. However, the coffee most commonly found at the supermarket
has often been sitting on that shelf for months. We found that the best way to bring the freshest coffee to the area was to roast it ourselves. So we bought a small roaster, imported quality green beans from coffee-producing countries and got started. Now, Pink Elephant coffee beans are roasted in small quantities to bring out the true flavor of the bean. With our small batch roasting process, we ensure that each bean is consistently roasted to perfection. Attached is more information about source of our beans and our individual roasts.

Shaw Gardens & Pet Treats

Amy Shaw, one of our newest LB vendors and a volunteer member of our board of directors, has decided to make up some pet treats for your four-legged friends. She will have three varieties available starting today. They were freshly baked this week in her home and no preservatives were added.

Strawberry Hill Farm

We’re bringing the last of our sweet potatoes to Local Bounty this week. We’ve also restocked the strawberry jam and brought more fresh eggs. Spring is on the way, even though it doesn’t seem like it sometimes! We’re starting seedlings indoors, getting ready for when the soil warms up outdoors. We still have some shares available in our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership for the 2014 season. If you’d like to find out more about it, we’ve put some brochures at the store.

Young Farms

All of our beef cuts are in stock. New this time around are sirloin burgers and ground round.
