Farm to Table Dinner

Farm to Table Dinner

Hi LB Shoppers – Although summer is almost over, our market is full of farm-fresh/homemade goodies for all. Here’s what some of our vendors will have available this week. And, a couple of other notes about market happenings:

Keene Creek Farm

Our product line is expanding again. Friday afternoon we will have ham loaf available. It is made with our wood-fired smokehouse hams and freshly ground sausage. Yummo. Our peppered bacon, Canadian bacon and smoked sausages will also be back in stock. Hot dogs are also making a re-appearance for those Labor Day cookouts and fall wienie roasts. All of our pork is pastured in Keene Township.

Strawberry Hill Farm

We have a row of yellow summer squash that’s producing like crazy right now. Today we’re putting a bag in the cooler of the smaller size people are asking for. The squash will be sold by the piece, so just reach into the bag and take out what you want.

Windy Hill Berry Farm & Vineyard

What a busy two weeks it’s been! Terese went back to work at Hopewell School, we provided fresh fruit and produce for last week’s Farm-to-Table dinner at Clary Gardens, set up at Coshocton’s farmer’s market,  delivered tomatoes to Unusual Junction and eggs to Medberry Marketplace and Collins Meat & Food Market, and picked berries for a wedding cake order for this Saturday. (Hopefully by next week we will have pictures of it posted on our Facebook page.) Thankfully we have Michael & Brian Armstrong helping us. We also still have pick-your-own blackberries at the farm. At Local Bounty we will have pickling cucumbers, large tomatoes, green & yellow zucchini squash (so many uses!), purple onions, cherry tomatoes, free-range brown eggs and English muffins (makes a quick breakfast sandwich). Thanks for your continued support of fresh, local produce. As one customer recently put it, “You can taste the difference!”

Farm to Table Dinner Thanks

Many, many thanks to those of you who came out to our Farm to Table Dinner. It truly was a remarkable event. We had fantastic weather, delicious food and of course, great company. We look forward to planning another one next year.

October 1: Fall Market Hours Changing

Our market hours will change starting Oct. 1. We are expanding our Thursdays (open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and closing earlier on Saturdays (open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.).
