Market News

New Item: Kombucha
I am very happy to welcome Trisha Goodridge of Kombucha Brewing Company to our family of growers and vendors! She is working with Cultured Traditions to bring us locally brewed kombucha. Kombucha is a refreshing effervescent elixir packed with probiotics. They use organic ingredients to create bold flavors that tastes amazing! If you are tying to replace soda in your diet this a great refreshing beverage to try! Flavors offered are: Apple Spice, Berry, Ginger Root, Lemongrass, Mango, Pineapple, and Straight Up.

New coffee – Kenya Murang'a
JavaGenesis, our co-op's small batch craft coffee roaster, has just added a new coffee Kenya Murang'a. This coffee is so good! It is a medium roast coffee with lots of fig and molasses sweetness on the front end with floral aromatics on the finish. It's very balanced and full bodied. This one has become my new favorite coffee and I think you'll love it too. The origin of the name Murang'a is believed to have been used by the Kikuyu people who referred to going for a visit in the area as 'Kurang'a' and and later changed to Murang'a. It is located 80 km north east of Nairobi and the coffee is grown on the slopes of the Aberdare range, an extension of Mt Kenya, with red volcanic soil. This coffee is produced by small scale farmers of 1 hectare to 5 hectares of land under the Farmers Cooperative Movement.

JavaGenesis' roast philosophy is to roast each bean to bring out the best characteristics of the coffee. Your coffee will arrive with the roast date on the package so you will know that you are drinking coffee at the peak of freshness. Whether you choose a medium or dark roast coffee, a single origin or blend or regular or decaf this means a great cup of coffee for you!

Cedar Rock Dairy Price Change (repeat)
We are so fortunate to have Cedar Rock Dairy deliver their milk weekly. Sam hates to do this but due to rising costs he has to increase the price of his milk. He's been putting this off for several months but unfortunately he has no choice but to increase the price so he can continue to bring us the best Non-GMO, grass fed milk. Starting this weekend these are the prices:
Milk – Raw Jersey Cow Milk for Pets 1/2 gal (Glass Jar)* – $4.40
Milk – Raw Jersey Cow Milk for Pets (Plastic Jug) – $5.50

If you've been purchasing in plastic but would like to switch to glass, Sam will list additional GLASS JAR SETS on the market for purchase. If you order your glass jar set this weekend you can immediately order milk in glass as the jars will already be at the farm. Please note you have to have glass jars or purchase a set before you can get the glass jar price! For more info on how the glass jar program works and your responsibilities please click here

It's More Than Your Thyroid!

According to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE)
27 million suffer from a thyroid condition and 50% are undiagnosed.
90% of women over 40 suffer from subclinical hypothyroid.

Are you suffering?
• Have you gained weight and are unable to lose it without going to extremes?
• Is your hair brittle, skin flaky and nails flimsy?
• Is your hair falling out?
• Are you constantly cold?
• Do you have regular joint pain?
• Regular headaches?
• Is it difficult to get consistent sleep?
• Are you aging prematurely?
• Do you have constant mood swings and irritability?
• Are you depressed?
• Trouble concentrating?
• High Blood Pressure and cholesterol? How does it affect your life?
• Is it affecting your relationship with your partner?
• Is it decreasing your ability to do the things you love to do?
• Are you unable to be kind to other people and are you isolating yourself from others?
• Is your performance at your job suffering leading to less compensation or advancement and lowered self-esteem?
• Do you feel less effective as a mother?
• Are you afraid that you may never find an answer?
• Afraid of being put on medication for the rest of your life or worse, needing surgery?

How does it make you feel?
• Depressed?
• Hopeless?
• Exhausted?
• Desperate?
• Crazy?
• Like nobody understands you?
• Inadequate?

Are you ready to make a change?
• Why do most women continue to suffer, get run in circles taking the wrong test, and put on multiple medications that only treat the symptoms.
• The latest research in thyroid, autoimmune, and inflammatory disease!
• Why you have never heard what the correct tests are!
• Why your inability to lose weight may not be your fault!
• The connection between weight loss, toxins, and hormone dysregulation.
• The #1 "10 Minute" Exercise program to ignite fat burning and fast weight loss.
• What do chronic symptoms like weight gain, IBS, Infertility, headaches, and fatigue have in common?
The answers might shock you!
• My simple yet comprehensive personalized 3 Step System that gets results safely and naturally! Act Now!
• It's not in your head.
• You're not just getting old.
• It is not your genes (There may be a genetic component triggered by certain things. We address that naturally. More on this at the seminar.)
• It might be your Thyroid and the causes might surprise you.

FCLO Update

I have decided to add FCLO from Green Pasture back on the group buy calendar. Our next group buy will be the last weekend this month. I have read many articles and blogs on the recent events and I can not find one scientific paper that shows the fermented cod liver oils from Green Pasture are rancid. Many of you have sent me emails of the remarkable results you've had and my own son asked me on Monday if he could have his cod liver oil back because he had a test and couldn't remember the facts. I started our family back on FCLO this week. Also, I figured if there was something "fishy" going on, I bet that will not be the case going forward. That's just my 2 cents…

Upcoming Group Buys

Below is a list of upcoming co-op group buys to help with planning and budgeting. All dates are subject to change.

FCLO Green Pasture – 9/25 – 9/27
Grass Fed Cheese – 10/9 – 10/11

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
