Happy Friday Everyone!
We love this easy recipe and eat it a lot this time of year.
5 medium tomatoes,thinly sliced
1/4 red or sweet onion, peeled, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced (we use the whole onion)
1-2 cucumbers, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
A generous drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, about 3-4 tablespoons
3 splashes red wine vinegar
Coarse salt and black pepper and a sprinkle of fresh herbs if you have them
Toss the tomatoes, onions, and cucumber with olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper.
All of the veggies in this recipe can be found on PGM this week!
Joyful Noise Acres Farm: The Market is open!
The Market is open for ordering so please take a moment to look over the delicious offerings.
We are adding raw milk to the market this week. *Cedar Rock Farm *milks cows on organic pastures and feeds them GMO free grains. This herd tests positive for the A2 protein. The milk is sweet and creamy (according to the pets that drink it). I will forward you more information on the milk if you are interested. The first delivery will be this Wednesday with pick-up here on the farm from 10-4.
We are making several changes to the market beginning with the cancelation of deliveries to the Canton and Wookstock gyms. Order volume has been too low to justify deliveries. We will continue to deliver to Cumming. All orders placed on the market can be picked up at the farm on Wedesdays and Cumming deliveries will be on Friday’s until September 10th then we will switch to Tuesdays. No milk will be delivered. It must be picked up on farm.
Sorry for short e-mail but I am out the door to get to Cummings’ Vickery Market.

Farmer At Your Door: Alpaca Dyer Balls, Mushrooms and friends!
My first visit was to Pacesetters Alpaca on Plymouth Church outside of Beloit. You may want to find out when they’re open and visit. When I can figure out how to add pictures to this, you will see the Alpaca faces. They stared at me when I picked up their dryer balls. hmm…. I wanted to take one home to live in the house, but Mr. Farmer said no.
After traveling for awhile, I ended up at a mushroom farm. They were the best looking oyster mushrooms ever. Mushroom farms tend to be far away from civilization; in the dark….it took me awhile to find my way back to a main road. The items from Bridgets Bakery about put me into a happy trance with their smell. I gained 5 pounds during the ride. That stuff is awesome. The cookies were so big they’re individually wrapped.
I’m now convinced we need to try Kimchi. I had a customer drooling as she opened the bag. drooling… yes, she really was.
I hope you enjoy your products. I’d love to meet you all and share a cookie or two.
See ya soon.
