Vendor updates:

Blossom Acres

We are bringing lots of produce to Local Bounty this week including: broccoli, sugar snap peas, candy and white onions, basil, cucumbers, zucchini, possibly some tomatoes, red and green kale and salad mix. All is fresh off our farm.

Flying Pig Farm

This week we have a few mustard greens and some collard greens. Our new sprout offerings include mung beans and green peas. We also have red lentils, alfalfa and red clover. Fresh granola will be back next week. Have a great weekend and thanks for shopping local!

Hillbippie

We are so thrilled with the growth of our bee hive so far.¬† Being new to the process it is both exciting and interesting.¬† We have added our first honey super and they are already to work in it.¬† Thanks to Dick Mullet (the honey man) for answering any questions and being excited right there with us as we watch our hive grow.¬† This week I will have my Full Wheat Bread, which is made of 100% whole wheat flour.¬† It also has delicious honey mixed in there, it is great for sandwiches or toast.¬† I will also have Focaccia on Friday.¬† A new wine jelly flavor will also be in, Concord & Rosemary.¬† It is such a beautiful color!¬† Made from our family’s wine (Shawnee Springs Winery) and infused with fresh and dried Rosemary.¬† Pick up a jar, they are a perfect present as well.¬† I will be bringing in more tea blends as soon as my jar order gets here, thanks!

Keene Creek Farm

Our freezer has been restocked with as much fresh pork as we have – little piggies, bulk sausage, brats (cheese, mild Italian, bratwurst), and butter and garlic marinated loin chops (so, so juicy). We appreciate your patience with us as the hogs finished off. We know many of you are awaiting the ham loaf and bacon. We promise to get it to you as soon as it is done. The hams are hanging in the smoke.house getting nice and flavorful – don’t want to rush that process. If you have a craving for our pork but don’t want to cook, try dinner at English Ivy (open for dinner Fridays and Saturdays 5-8). Dave and Janette are integrating our products into the menu (last week it was BBQ pork loin – which was a great hit we hear). Don’t forget about our line of dry mixes too – pizza doughs, artisan rosemary bread, trail mix and a variety of dip mixes.

Rolling Acres Nursery

The spring planting season is winding down, but it’s still a good time to plant perennials, trees and shrubs. We have reduced all of our perennials to $4.50 a container (does not include bushes and trees). We are bringing more Japanese Maple trees down today and will offer 1 gallon pots of forsythia for $4 each (all should be there by late morning). Since we offer a seasonal product, July 12 will be the last weekend for you to purchase our nursery products.

Windy Hill Farm

So in between the rain showers on Wednesday I managed to harvest 105 stalks of rhubarb to bring in today.¬†I will supply rhubarb as long as I am able, but it won’t be for much longer.¬†[Sadly the farm is being sold at auction next Tuesday, 3:30-6:00 (see The Beacon–Zelones Estate). [There will be an Amish food stand, lots of kitchen and gardening items, and tons of tools and stuff for the guys, so come on out; I would love to see you.] Also, BLUEBERRIES¬†are finally ready. There are over 100 bushes!! None of our blueberries are sprayed with chemicals, but what with preparations for the farm sale, I won’t have time to pick any. So rather than them going to waste, any Local Bounty Update readers who want to can come pick blueberries. Bring your own containers. Picking is limited to 6:15-8:30 p.m. for the next 4 nights (Thur.-Sun.) and possibly next week from Wed.-Sun. night. Can call me to double check @ 294-8619. The farm is only 5 minutes from Local Bounty. (Please check in at the garage entrance when you arrive.) Hurry over and get some blueberries before the birds do! Delicious on salad greens from Local Bounty with Strawberry Hill’s vinaigrette or over some granola with cold milk…yum!
