Start the new year by shopping local

| January 3, 2017

Good Morning Local Foodies! Hope your New Year was a blast!

I am looking forward to a fresh start! Speaking of fresh, we have whole wheat bread, spelt bread and buckwheat cookies. Buckwheat cookies are gluten and dairy free. We still have potatoes, onions, garlic, squash, and kale.

Kale Yeah Class!

Learn to use Kale three ways with the Lady of the Veggies. Enjoy an evening of learning, tasting, and fellowship, while sipping on a hot beverage. You will also have a goodie bag to take home.

When: Wednesday, Jan. 11 @ 6 p.m.

Where : Local Bounty

Cost : $12

We still have a few seats available!

Have a fabulous week!

Best thoughts,

Keene Creek Farm

Happiest of New Years to you and yours. As we finish off our next batch of hogs, we still have plenty of cuts available in our Local Bounty freezer. Butter and garlic marinated pork chops, beer brats (made with real hops), ham loaf and Canadian bacon just to name a few. We anxiously await the arrival of two calves (from our Texas Longhorn cow and heifer) and more piglets…! May 2017 bring you lots of laughter, great food and good health.

Windy Hill Farm

This is the last week for Peanut Butter Cookies, or anything else, from me, at least for awhile. I am taking some time off this year to work on projects for a house I bought out in the country (with a beautiful view) at the end of 2015, after selling our beloved 30-acre farm of berries, produce, and chickens. My late husband, Martin, and I were part of the original 14 vendors/producers at Local Bounty. The prior summer somebody had approached us at our farmer’s maket stand and asked us if we wanted to be part of a year-round, indoor “farmer’s market” in Coshocton. Of course we said yes, and it’s been a labor of love these past 4+ years. Martin served as treasurer before passing away in 2013, and I was a volunteer cashier every month, which was lots of fun because I was able to talk with all of the wonderful people who shop at Local Bounty. I’m sure the store will continue to do great things in the community. It has a hardworking team leading the way and a worthwhile mission. Hey, maybe I’ll even be able to start having a social life, which could use some help, hint, hint. (I’m on Facebook if anybody knows any eligible bachelors, 50+, grey at the temples, or no hair at all is fine too, ha, ha.)  All kidding aside, I hope each of you will continue to shop local for your food by visiting Local Bounty~Coshocton. By doing so, you help support the many small, independent farms in our area and the hardworking people that run them.    ~Terese Zelones

Bob’s Pickle Patch/Verda’s Hens

We are so looking forward to spring here on our little chicken ranch.  So are the chickens.  There are some cold winter days ahead, but spring can’t be too far behind.  We are getting a few blue and green eggs now from our Easter egger hens.  Maybe it’s an early sign of spring, or maybe it’s just because we turn their lights on at 6 AM.

I took the time to look back this week.  About a hundred years back.  No, I was not around then, but just curious about what it was like raising chickens then.  America was involved in World War I.  Uncle Sam was encouraging everyone to raise back yard chickens.  You could buy a dozen eggs for around 34 cents, but then the average family income per year was under $700.00.  That would be dad’s salary.  Mom stayed home.  Those few single women who went to work could expect to get about half that.  Times have really changed!

One thing that has not changed is the great taste of eggs raised naturally from hens who get to flap their wings and go outdoors and tear up all my mulch looking for worms!

All the best to you in 2017!  Thanks for shopping at Local Bounty.

As always, thanks for your support.
