BUY LOCAL ~ Know your Farmer!

Princeton Farm Fresh:  The Market is Open


I want to take a moment to welcome a new member to our Market. Our very own Laura with Timberdoodle Restaurant at the Eddy Grove Winery. She and Perry really understand what we are trying to do here in Princeton with Locally Grown, Sourced and Produced Food. Laura is bringing us one of her gluten free brownie deserts.

Here is a little bit from her intro into on our growers page.

We strive to bring you the best tasting and freshest food choices we possibly can. When we don’t have the items ourself we buy locally grow, or certified organic as often as possible.

On Princeton Farm Fresh, we will be starting with some of Laura’s delicious desserts! She has also recently come to love…gluten free options. Check out what we are offering this week and keep watching as we add new and different items to our product list!

Does it really matter to buy local? Yes. When you feed your family you want the best tasting, highest quality food that you can afford. Buying locally is often times much cheaper than food offerings at large chain groceries and big box stores.

When you buy locally grown, you know where, and by whom, your food was grown. You can ask questions about how, where, and what it was grown with usually from the person that grew it.

And by purchasing your food locally, you keep your money in your community. When you buy locally, that money comes right back in to the community. Local growers shop locally as well!

Thank You Laura and Perry- I can’t wait to see the other wonderful food you bring us in the coming months.

See you Friday,
Angela

DeForest, WI:  Market to Open May 8th


This has been a strange spring season! We’ve had some beautiful days in the 60s but many cooler nights that slow down the growing process.

We are guessing that the market will be ready to open next week with crops that will have a warm week to add some growth.

Those of you that are looking for your Forest Run Farm CSA punchcards, no need to worry, we will have them ready for you at your first pick up.

What to expect to find in a week or 2: green onions, green garlic, leeks, spinach, lettuce, rhubarb, asparagus and herbs. Forest Run Farm will also have certified organic vegetable and herb plants available for your home garden. Bauman’s will be providing fresh eggs. Note, the plants and eggs can not be purchased with the CSA punchcard.
