Joyful Noise Acres Farm:  The JNA Farm market is open for ordering

Good Morning all!

I write this from North Carolina where we are having about 270 birds processed. I am returning with lots of cuts including drumsticks and thighs, that will be packaged 4 thighs to a pack and 4 drumsticks to a pack. We will also have wings again! Once I see what the packages weigh, I will update the market tonight.

*Cedar Rock Farms *will be delivering milk this week so get your orders in. Bring your clean glass jars when picking up your order so they will have them for the following delivery. Mr. Sam Jones runs the dairy and will gladly talk to any of you that have questions about his milk or practices.

*Four Mile Farm *and *Indian Creek Angus *have plenty of wonderful beef for you this week. There is nothing like the taste of GOOD grass fed beef!

Don’t forget to add a pesto or tapenade to your order from Rosemary Knoll. They are delicious on chicken. The Sun Dried Tomato pesto is also a delightful taste with beef.

Good Shepherd Herbals makes beautiful soaps and teas and salves. Using organic herbs, ensures you get top quality ingreedients in top quality products. As a side, I am traveling and washing my hands a lot and showering using soaps provided in the hotel, etc. I can tell you, the greasy film is getting old fast. I love GSH soaps that leave you clean, not covered in an unknown coating!

Amestoy Farm is supplying us with delicious vegetables again this week. His peppers are excellent for everything but this week stuffed peppers are on the menu.

Don’t forget to get your herbs and seasonings, oils and vinegars here also. Home Appetit make the most delectable blends. Using their products, you never have to buy salad dressing again, just blend the EVOO and White Balsamic Vinegar together, add a tablespoon of the Mediterranean blend and you have a fabulous greek dressing! Serve over greens, olives, tomatoes and feta cheese.

Enjoy shopping and we look forward to seeing you this week!

Blessings to all,
Mary Beth

Farmer At Your Door:  Integrity and Joyful

Lessons I learned today.

Integrity. Again, I found homemade bread warm, so warm I had to come back so it could cool down. I saw blueberry muffins still in the tin from the oven and I watched the coffee being ground. Our baker out of Evansville (Bridget) recipes are pure recipes, not shipped in dough. Homemade. All homemade. All of your producers make it themselves. I picked up organic goodies at a farm where the gentleman farmer was repairing his lawn mower and talking to the wild turkeys. He really was. He had the turkey call perfected. I know this because I’ve heard it from my own back yard from the wild turkeys.

I do not pick up your goodies from box stores. I pick them up from mom and pop bakeries, farms, and hobby kitchens. I see where they come from and how hard these people work. They’re local, they’re your neighbors.

It’s fun to know that at 1pm I have in my hands the product that will be in your home by 6:30.

To my friend with bread…I did not nibble. lol

As we were driving from farm to farm, my adult son called it joyful. It was a beautiful drive on a beautiful day.

Integrity and Joyful.

I would like to thank the vendors who stand behind their products. And I would like to thank the customers who respect and enjoy these products.

A special thanks to a lovely lady who made my day. I hope you enjoy your coffee.

One last word; Raspberry white chocolate muffin. I still have crumbs in my car. It was worth it.

See ya soon.

Health Benefits of Goat Cheese
I personally love goat cheese and it is easy to incorporate into your daily meals. It is easy to add to a salad, a dollop on soup, spread on toast, scramble it with eggs, stir into grits, a burger topping, spread on fruit with a drizzle of raw honey or pair it with smoked salmon. If you have a favorite recipe using goat cheese please send and I’ll add it to our recipes section.

It addition to tasting great it’s very healthy. Here are a few health benefits of this great tasting cheese:

1. High in Protein- There are five grams of protein in a single ounce of goat cheese!

2. High in Nutrients- Goat cheese contains many nutrients including the amino acid tryptophan, phosphorus. riboflavin or vitamin B2 (which plays important roles in the body’s energy production), potassium (which helps prevent high blood pressure and protects against arteriosclerosis),vitamin B-6 ,niacin, copper and the antioxidant selenium.

3. It’s Easy to Digest- People who are lactose intolerant are sometimes able to tolerate goat cheese even if they have problems digesting cheese made from cow’s milk. The levels of lactose are similar, but the fat molecules in goat cheese are shorter, making them more digestible. Even people who don’t have a lactose intolerance will find that goat cheese appears to be more easily digested than conventional dairy products.

4. Raises your Metabolism- the calcium in cheese have been proven to assist the body’s burning of fat after meals and raising your metabolism.

5. Good For Your Brain- Dairy plays an important role in the brain’s functioning. A 2012 study found those who regularly have dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt score better in tests of mental ability than people who never, or rarely, consume dairy products.
