Updates from our vendors:


Enrico’s Hot Peanuts

Enrico is busy in the kitchen making more hot peanuts and should be refilling our stock soon. In the meantime, there are a few bags of the Easter mix remaining, and they will be discounted this week. So check it out! Memorial Day weekend is approaching. What better snack to go with those picnic foods than bowls of spicy, savory peanuts! Like us on Facebook – just search for Enrico’s Hot Peanuts.



Our little barn is near complete and we plan to bring our goats and hen up this weekend.  We will also be getting 6-8 chicks for our lone hen, hopefully she adopts them.  It is beautiful on the hill this time of year!  In the store this week I will have everyone’s favorite, Focaccia!  I will also have my ‘Full Wheat Bread’ which is made with 100% Prairie Gold Whole Wheat Flour, it has a wonderful crumb and is a great bread for a sandwich (it also has Mullet Apiaries honey in it).  I am still working on the Gluten-Free bread, I made a loaf last night and it didn’t turn out quite like I had hoped, stay tuned.  Wine jelly will be restocked and a new flavor of tea will be in on Friday, it is a spring tonic tea made with Red Clover, Nettle, Lemon Balm, and Alfalfa.  Thanks and have a lovely day!


Keene Creek Farm 

We picked and packed baby Bloomsdale Spinach and a mixed salad greens tonight. Both were grown in our hoop house. They’re absolutely delicious, no “salad” dressing required. We also have several dozen eggs to sell again this week. Our pork supply is starting to look slim as the last of the peppered bacon sold last week. We will be down to the bottom of the freezer for sure come June when our next batch of piggies go to the processor. We have plenty of brats (mild Italian and bratwurst) for the grilling season and our Stan’s Special Blend sausage (patties and bulk) is always popular to serve up at breakfast (or top a pizza with – my favorite way to enjoy it).


Millcreek Homestead

I’ll be working at the Bounty this afternoon, so stop by and say hello.  One of the best parts about coming home is getting to reconnect with friends!  My shelves are restocked with everything available (lots of soap getting ready to come your way, but it needs a couple weeks yet).


Mullet Apiaries

Dick will be in the store on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., so stop by and say hello. He would be happy to answer any questions you might have on bees. It’s one of his favorite subjects! With the gorgeous weather we are having this week, thoughts turn to cool drinks. Try using honey instead of sugar in your favorite beverage. It’s unrefined, has a lower glycemic index than white sugar, and it’s local! Take that drink outside this week, enjoy the warmer weather, and listen to the birds. Most of the migrating species are back and filling the air with song!


Strawberry Hill Farm

Finally, some warm and sunny days! Our laying hens are now out on the pasture for the summer and happily scratching and pecking their way through the lush grass. Ron will be bringing eggs to the store on Thursday morning.
On Friday morning at 10, we will deliver tomato, pepper, and basil seedlings to people who made orders. (The sweet potato seedlings are not quite ready yet.) We will also have extra plants for sale, so if you missed the boat on ordering you can still buy some. The seedlings come in 3-inch biodegradable pots that can be planted directly into your garden.


Windy Hill Farm

RHUBARB PECAN BREAD – Thanks to some wonderful neighbors, Jeremy & Vicky Shrock, who let me use their oven when I lost pressure on my gas well and my oven would not go any higher than 245 degrees, I will be bringing in Rhubarb bread Thursday around 12:00. There is almost a whole pound of rhubarb from my garden in each recipe. (As always, no chemicals used on our produce.) It sold out last week, so hurry down to Local Bounty and pick up a loaf today.
