Farm to Table Dinner: Reservations due Monday

If you haven’t gotten your tickets to this year’s Farm to Table Dinner fundraiser, you’re almost out of time. We are quickly approaching our guest limit and our chef needs a few days to gather ingredients to fix the feast. You will have until Monday, September 1 to purchase tickets ($75 for LB members and $50 for non-members). This will be an entire evening dedicated to celebrating everything that’s local – food, wine, music and culture. To reserve your tickets, contact Kristi Adelsberger ([email protected] or 740-623-8914).

Vendor Updates:

Enrico’s Hot Nuts

Summer seems to have finally showed up and these hot, hot days are a perfect time to relax on the deck or patio (maybe with your feet in the kiddy pool), sip your favorite cold drink, snack on some savory and sassy Enrico’s Hot Nuts, and watch the sun go down. Need a simple answer for what to bring to those Labor Day festivities? Why not some Enrico’s? Pair a bag of our nuts with a cute little bowl and you have a great hostess gift. Happy Labor Day, everyone!

Hillbippie

Hello all!  I will have Focaccia today, but we are headed on vacation so get it while it is there.  I will be back at it next week.  Thank you!

Keene Creek Farm
It’s the last hurrah of summer this weekend. Hard to believe, huh? Celebrate the Labor Day weekend and make cooking easy on yourself – brats on the grill is always easy and delicious. Although our pork freezer was stacked edge to edge last week, we actually had to restock some things for this week (…ham loaf for one). Our orphan piglets are growing ever so quickly. They’re almost too big for the temporary pen we set up for them in our garage (handy that it was so close to go out and feed them every couple of hours round the clock for three weeks. But, now that they’re actually starting to smell like pigs, they’ll have a new home in the barn soon). We are dedicated to providing you with quality, delicious,
locally-grown pork and continue to be amazed by your support

 

Mullet Apiaries

The bees are busy, busy on the ironweed, Joe Pye, wing stem and goldenrod, stockpiling honey for the winter (what do they know we don’t?). Let them know how much you appreciate their efforts by picking up a jar of delicious honey this week. Company for Labor Day? How about cooling them off with a Honey Watermelon Crush (from the National Honey Board)? You take 4 cups of diced watermelon (reserve  2 cups), 1 ½ cups of diced cucumber, 6 mint leaves, 4 T. of honey, and 2 cups of ice. Blend all but the reserved 2 cups of melon in a blender until smooth. Put the reserved melon in the glasses and pour the blended liquid over them. Garnish with additional mint if you like – very refreshing! Be safe this holiday weekend!

Shaw Gardens

This week Shaw Gardens has Sugar Baby watermelons, crook neck squash, pumpkin, spaghetti squash, green bell peppers, and eggplant.

Strawberry Hill Farm

Zucchini, yellow summer squash, kale, and green beans are doing well for us in this wet year. We will bring all of them to the store on Thursday, plus some bags of cilantro. Look for all of this in the cooler. The squash will be in plastic bags—just reach in and get out the number you want. We’ll also be replenishing our strawberry jam.

Thank you!
