April showers bring May flowers.
Soon we will have some flowers for sale!

I want to give a shout out to our new volunteers, Eric and Josie Sellers. They will be taking care of the yard maintenance for the season. Eric will mow and Josie will help with gardening! A big thank you to Eric and Josie! We can’t thank you enough!
Also we can’t forget about our volunteer inside, thank you to Virginia Carroll. Virginia has been with us since September. Thank you Virginia!

Vendor Updates


Flying Pig Farms

This week we have cherry, blueberry and blackberry pies; lavender and new lemon scones; and zucchini bread mini loaves. Have you tried our Walter’s Bug Spray? It’s a great all natural option to repel mosquitoes, flies and ticks. We also have fire starters to start your campfire! Made with recycled candles and shredded junk mail, these fire starters have a long burn time to get your fire going. I’ll stock pies around 11:30 this week. Thanks for shopping local!

Keene Creek Farm

We are so very excited for our upcoming tasting night at Local Bounty. If you haven’t already reserved your seat for Thursday evening (April 28 from 6-7 p.m.), please do so asap so we are sure to prepare enough samples for all. Local Bounty appreciates a $5 donation for the tasting. Our whole family will be on site to tell you all about our animal husbandry practices and show you three simple dishes that will make breakfast and dinner really easy (yet delicious!). Just a note on pork supply: we butchered three hogs in mid/late February and have already sold out of many of the cuts. Three hogs. Do you know how much meat that is? About 420 pounds worth…in just two months. We continue to be humbled by your support and are grateful for how patient you are in waiting for your favorite cuts to arrive again. We have hogs that went to butcher this week – so we will have marinated loin chops, bacon, Canadian bacon and more back in stock in the weeks to come. Thank you, thank you again. And, we look forward to seeing you Thursday evening.


Bob’s Pickle Patch/ Verda’s Hens


We will have eggs at Local Bounty on Tuesday this week.  We will also be bringing some more gluten free cookies and brownies.  (with samples. yum!)

Thanks for trying and buying.

Hello Local Bounty Shoppers,
Have you ever heard the word “arachibutyrophobia”? It is the scientific term for the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of one’s mouth. It happens because the peanut butter’s high protein content draws draws moisture away from the mouth. Peanut butter is low in saturated fats- there is less saturated fat in peanut butter then in most lunch meats. A peanut butter sandwich contains higher levels of protein, pound for pound then chicken chicken, turkey, white fish, milk and beef. It contains more fiber then baked beans, potatoes, spinach, cabbage, or carrots.
So head on over to our Local Bounty store to pick up a jar of peanut butter. I like it with some honey on it too.
Thanks for your support of Local Bounty.


As always thanks for your support!
