Joyful Noise Acres Farm: Market is open for orders!
The gardens and farms are really showing off this week, we have beautiful heirloom vegetables from Amestoy Farm, Trust in Nature Farm and Joyful Noise Acres Farm. Look for hot peppers and bell peppers, green beans, carrots, Cherokee Purple tomatoes, Gold Nugget Tomatoes, Hill Country Red Okra and fresh herbs.
Twice a year we do a bulk honey order from Blue Ridge Honey Company. This is raw, unpasteurized honey. We order by the gallon and the prices are great. If you are interested in ordering honey, please e-mail me for an order form. This time we have Blackberry and Blue Berry honey to order. The Black berry is so good. I am eager to taste the blueberry.
I hope you have a favorite local bee keeper and I encourage you to buy local honey when possible.
New to the market this week are Home Appetit. They carry the most delightful seasoning blends, oils, vinegars and salt. Everything they produce is exceptional. The White Balsamic Vinegar is a staple in my kitchen for making a quick salad dressing. I have heard it referred to as “crack for the kitchen”!
Rosemary Knoll has added more items to the market and delivered many of the to the farm. The Arichoke pesto is so perfect for stuffing mushrooms. Broil for 3 minutes then serve warm. Thier face book page has some great recipes. One is for Meatloaf with the Sun Dried Tomato Pesto which I will be making this Sunday.
Joyful Noise Acres Farm have thin cut pork chops, Boston Butts, sliced ham, and sausage. Two more pigs are going up this week so there will be fresh side and ribs available next Saturday. The flavor of pasture raised pork just cannot be compared. We are carrying *Herbie’s Bar-B-Que *seasoning blend which is excellent on most any meat but makes a great dry rub for the Boston Butts and chops.
Chanterelle Mushrooms are blooming over here. They are $6/pint, e-mail me to reserve some. They are a gourmet delight!
*Four Mile Farm *will have beef again the first of August but meanwhile *Indian Creek Angus *is providing us with half a cow tomorrow. We will have steaks, ground beef, soup bones, etc. It should be here around 10:30 in the morning and I will get the quantities updated for ordering later in the day.
If you place an order on the market, you can always add to it later so feel free to check back to see if anything has been added that may interest you.
We pray you have a wonderful week and happy shopping!
