…this and that…
Heritage Farm has Pig Hearts, Thick Cut Pork Chops and Smoked Polish Links on Special this week!
The Chops are fabulous and I am trying the Smoked Polish Links this week! Also, I have ordered the Ready to EatPulled Pork and the Canadian Bacon! Sarah and her husband are quite taken with the Pulled Pork and I am looking forward to trying it! Uncured Hams are listed this week! Large, (approx 23#'s) — one of these would be perfect for Easter. I noticed that Greg also listed a few Whole Chickens in his offerings this week! This will be the last of Whole Chickens until May, so take note!Beef, Chicken, Lamb and Pork — Heritage Farm has it all!
Don't forget Carrell Farms has Alpaca, Water Buffalo and Lamb. The Alpaca Sausage is great on the grill or cooked in an iron skillet. I use a mix of Alpaca Bones and Water Buffalo Bones to make a very rich Bone Broth! Alpaca and Lamb also make a rich, yummy Bone Broth!
Although Doug of Doug's Garden will no longer have access to his wonderful space, he has harvested lots of Carrots and is offering them this week! These are YUMMY!
Grow With the Flow is offering English Pea Sprouts this week!
Morris of Healing Earth Farms now has 4 sizes of eggs available. Eggs (Organic, from Free Range Hens) These are really flavorful and yolks are orange! 3 varieties of Cabbages Purple Top Turnips Hakurie Turnips Georgia Collard Greens
Cereals and Grains
Did you know that we have several different options for Organic Cereals and Grains?
Amish Cereal (Organic Red Wheat and other goodies) Rolled Oats (Organic Rolled Oats) Stone Ground Grits (Organic Corn Grits) Einkorn Wheat Berries Organic Perfect to mill yourself and make your own Bread! Einkorn Flour Organic Freshly milled when ordered! Red Wheat Organic Freshly milled when ordered or request the berries and mill yourself!
Veggies: Although we have had some beautiful weather and our Veggie Farmers are hard at work getting early Spring items planted, we are technically still in the Winter Season. Take heart! Soon, Back River Farm, Fry Farm, Grow With the Flow will be bringing the fruits of their labors to the Market and we will all welcome them back with open arms! The Veggie Patch and Healing Earth Farm will continue to add products as Mother Nature allows! So, hold on, my friends and pray for good weather and bountiful Harvests!
In the past, Greg of Heritage Farm has reserved his excellent produce for his own Market and CSA customers. This year, Greg and Lainya have made some changes and have hired a Produce Manager! This will greatly increase their harvest and we will be fortunate in gaining this additional source of yummy Veggies! We all appreciate the goodness of the Meat from Heritage Farm and judging from this experience as well as Veggies I was privileged to try last year, their produce will delight also! I am grateful for Greg's continued participation in our Markets and welcome his new offerings!
Starting this next week, I intend to return to writing my missives and musings. In them, I hope to keep you informed of what is happening with our Farmers as well as tidbits of information, links to information regarding challenges our Farmers face in bringing healthy, chemical free, nutrient-dense food to us! Seemingly little nuances in laws to rules of meat processing facilities affect the Farmers and ultimately us in very real ways! Stay tuned!
My Daily Bread does not have listings on the Market this week. They will return next week.
