For beef or pork, we feature both Woodbine Farms and Enoch Farms. Woodbine is an offshoot of Chapel’s Country Creamery and is providing us with nice free-range beef and pork products. Enoch Farms has also asked us to carry some of their customized sausage products and other pork products.
From Twin Posts, we have wonderful free-range chicken eggs.
Davidson’s Mushrooms are essential in many kitchens and winter is no exception to get your cremini, portabella, shiitake, grey oyster, maiitake, king oyster (AKA king trumpet), and Lion’s Mane (Pom pom) mushrooms.
Wonderful cheese is available from Chapel’s Country Creamery that is made with milk from their pastured, grass-fed dairy cows. We carry a variety from them that includes Amber Cheddar, Bay Blue, Chapel Cheddar, Brie, Woodbine, Smooth Sails, Queso Fresco and Paneer.
Jen from Flying Squirrel Garden will be making dessert and savory pot pies again this week for you. Jen uses mostly organic ingredients in her pies, including the produce she has grown in her pesticide-free garden. The savory pot pies easily provide two servings and impossible meats can substituted. She uses a homemade crust made with butter for all the pies with garlic and fresh herbs baked into the crust. The fruit and dessert pies rival any I have ever tasted. You can request a graham cracker crust and/or crumb toppings instead of the regular butter crust. Limit is two per customer as long as supplies last.
Chrissy’s Bees wildflower raw honey and Dutch clover raw honey is made by honey bees living on Stag Run Farm. The honey lightly filtered and never processed (i.e. heated) so that it may retain its wholesome properties as the bees produced it.
Finally, last but not least, are the dozens of delicious of jams, jellies (including no-sugar options), mustards and chutneys from Backyard Jams & Jellies.
We hope you enjoy what we bring to you and continue to eat well into the winter. Best wishes for a happy 2023.
