Amaryllis Bulbs, Aloe Plants & Honey




Market News

Hello!
The Amaryllis bulbs and the Aloe plants were late additions to the Market. You can find them in the Flower or Plant Category. My secretary neglected to make available the Honey, Hemp Honey and Lip Balm for the Market yesterday. I’ll need to talk to him about his negligence. There are plenty of carrots, lettuce and lots of great items from Bear Creek, Wedge Oak, Bloomy Rind and Dozen Bakery still available.

I’m hoping that the next Market will be March 1st.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*Orders can be placed without receiving the Sunday email. I try to open the Market between 7 and 8pm on Sunday. Sometimes I run a little late. Just go to the website: http://freshharvest.locallygrown.net/welcome to see if the Market is open.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
*PayPal payments have to be manually added to your account. There will be a delay to crediting your account due to me needing to take time to do the bookkeeping. I also have to go to each account with cash or check payments. These are sometimes delayed by procrastination or being busy. You can still place an order even though it may cause your account to be “overdrawn”. There is no penalty for going into the minus column. Sometimes I’m a little slow in getting to the bank to make deposits, but it eventually happens.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

Fresh Harvest for February 16th




Market News

Hello!

Surprisingly, there’s a pretty darn good selection of veggies, cheese, breads and meats this week. It’s unclear how often the Market will be open, but I’m guessing every other week at this point.

Bountiful Blessings Farm will be listing eggs with Fresh Harvest. The hens are free range and are fed organically. $6 dozen

Henosis has Lions Mane mushrooms this week. Touting neurological health benefits this little puff of goodness is great for any seafood center-dish or appetizer.

Wedge Oak Farms has some great new sausages:
Potsticker Sausage: this sausage tastes like the filling of a Potsticker or dumpling. Rich with Scallion, ginger, garlic, soy sauce and sesame oil. Try it with your favorite Egg Roll in a Bowl recipe.
Boudin Sausage – a traditional Cajun sausage made with pork, rice, and loaded with garlic, onion, bell peppers, scallion and parsley. Get ready for Mardi Gras 2020
Honky Tonk Cheesesteak Sausage – beef, white cheddar, jalapeños, and bacon. We call it Honky Tonk cause it’s hot and smoky.
Winter Goose – “poultry-only” sausage rich with all spice and cloves. A delicious way to try goose.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.

Weblog Entry

Hello!

Enough lallygagging around – it’s time to get back to work! I’ll have to step away from the fireplace, pack away my pjs and bathrobe and cork up the cognac. Actually, I don’t own any pjs or a bathrobe and have never had cognac, but that image was so appealing.

There is an abundance of carrots, lettuce and other greens available this week. Bloomy Rind has a nice selection of cheese and some Prosciutto. We should have 60 dozen eggs. I noticed that Dozen Bakery has listed their Buckwheat and Sesame Sourdough Bread. Lots of sausages, beef and chicken are on hand.

I’m not sure of the schedule for February, so I’ll keep you updated.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.

Fresh Harvest for January 5th




Market News

Hello!
I hope that everyone enjoyed the holidays and having time with their family and friends. That was the case for me although I found myself turning into quite the slug. It’s back to work with a purpose now. I hope that your New Year’s resolution is to try to eat more locally grown food. We’ll do our best to give you that opportunity this year. Surprisingly, we have a pretty good selection this week with lots of carrots, lettuces, mushrooms and greens. I’m not sure what the winter schedule will be including next week, but I will keep you updated. It depends on the quantity of veggies our growers have available each week and whether a blizzard is in the forecast.

Bear Creek and Wedge Oak have a great variety of meats. Bloomy Rind has 10 delectable items listed.

Cookies, breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are plentiful.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.

Fresh Harvest for December 15th




Market News

Hello!
This will be the last delivery for 2019. It’s been a great year! Thank you. I had hoped to come up with something witty, but I’m currently feeling a little witless. There are plenty of options on cheese, meats and baked goods that will be wonderful for the holidays. It will probably be the second week of January before we’ll be back, but I’ll let you know in 2020.
