Hi All,

We are now open for orders. In addition to what is listed today, we will have a few pounds of green beans, some tomatoes, and a few eggplant on our table Wednesday. I am unsure of quantities, but give us a note in the “comments” section of your order if you want any of these items and I will try to hold some for you. No guarantees that I will have them, but I will reserve what we do have rather than selling them to the public.

Blessings to you all,
Bob & Lynnita

News from Our Growers:

The Market is filling up with delicious Summer Produce and Baked Items, order early so you don’t miss any of your favorite things.

Please welcome our newest Grower: Ewe and Me Homestead: A few years ago, We discovered I had a food sensitivity to cow and goat milk. I went a few years without any dairy in my life, but was extremely excited to find I was not sensitive to sheep milk. We started our sheep dairy last year, with this being our first milking season.

We recognized that this unique milk could help others in our community who are sensitive to the other types of milk available. We offer herd shares and sheep milk ice cream through our dairy, which provides a guaranteed amount of milk per week.

Our sheep graze out on our pasture which has never been treated with chemicals. We provide our flock grass hay, sheep feed and alfalfa. We are moving towards a grain free flock on a rotational grazing system. We hand milk to keep our girl comfortable and happy.

Trinity Rose Oberhasli Dairy Goats: taking a weekend break this week, see you all next week.
