Local Bounty update

| July 17, 2014

Good morning!

What a lovely cool summer day, stop by and see us.  I apologize for the tardiness of this email. Internet and technology issues this morning, living in the country has it pitfalls, but way more rewards! On with the updates!

Kids Cooking Camp

There is still room in this year’s Kids Cooking Camp. It is geared toward kids ages 4-10 who have an interest in cooking. Camp will be Monday, July 28 through Friday, August 1 (sessions at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.). Each class will last approximately 40 minutes. Kiddos will be loaded up with all kinds of cooking gear – measuring cups/spoons and aprons! Registration forms are available at the OSU Extension Office (it is our non-profit partner for this camp) and at Local Bounty. Or, you can e-mail either one of us and we will forward it to you. Scholarships are also available to help defray the $30 registration fee.

Eggs, Eggs, Eggs

We know many of you are missing those farm-fresh eggs from our vendors. Our regular egg vendors have had some varmint issues and haven’t had as many eggs to sell as they would like. But, we have good news. One of our other vendors, Wholesome Valley Farm (who also sells cheese, syrup, etc.), provided eggs to sell this week to fill in the gap. The eggs from the Keim family at Wholesome Valley are exactly what you’d expect from our other vendors – they’re fresh, they’re brown, and they were laid by pastured hens.

Vendor Updates:


I have NEW tea labels, I hope you like them.  Come get your Mint Condition herb tea, a blend of Peppermint and Spearmint. Mint out man! Add to iced tea for a refreshing kick. Reset Button is also available, it is the perfect mix to smooth our your tense day. Sip and relax. French Boule and Focaccia will be in today. Bippie buns will be in Friday, they are a small bun that could be used for Hamburgers or sandwiches, made from the same dough as French Boule.  Enjoy!!

Keene Creek Farm

We have been busy around our place this week getting ready for the arrival of some piglets (or so we hope). We have two Yorkshire gilts (females who haven’t had babies yet) that we bred with an Old Spot boar. Since we just let Mother Nature (or Mr. Spot in particular) take over, we aren’t 100% of their due date. But, the girls have entered that uncomfortable stage and only get up to eat and drink. The arrival of these pigs will be another step in us reaching our goal of being a birth to butcher farm. Even though we butchered pigs a few weeks ago, our freezer at LB is looking skimpy again. We are hauling four more hogs to the processor tonight so we shouldn’t run out of anything for too long. If you have any cuts you’d like to see us stock that we don’t normally carry, let us know. We are always open to suggestions and your input. Many thanks for your continued support

Mullet Apiaries

Now is a critical time for beekeepers and their girls. Mid July into early August is what they call the “dearth”. It’s a time when there are fewer blooms out there and nectar sources dwindle. Beekeepers often need to feed their charges with pollen patties and sugar water during this food drought so they can make it to the fall flow of asters, goldenrod and other early fall blooms. But there is still plenty of delicious honey available at the Local Bounty! Come on in, get a jar, and try drizzling it on ham slices from Keene Creek or Thousand Acres toward the end of the cooking time and let it caramelize just a bit. Or here’s a cool treat – make a Hillbippie tea blend, stir in some honey, and pour over ice.  Add hammock or chaise lounge and you are good to go!

Strawberry Hill Farm

Crops are a bit scarce on the farm right now, as a result of too much rain earlier that didn’t allow us to plant. However, things are looking up now that we’ve had a couple short strings of sunny days. Look for kale and cilantro from Strawberry Hill at the store this week.

Wholesome Valley

We have eggs!! They are pasture raised and full of goodness.  We will also have cherry tomatoes, pattypan squash and red potatoes.  Put them all together and that sounds like a delicious breakfast!
