ALFN Local Food Club: Market Reminder!
I know. I know. As far as food-related things go, it’s pretty hard to see past Thursday right now, and with good reason. Your fridge is packed. Your freezer is packed. It seems like enough food to last a month or more, but I’m here to tell you that it’ll be gone before you know it. There’ll be dinner guests and doggy bags, seconds, thirds, and late night snacks.
Or maybe you really do have a month’s worth Thanksgiving vittles, in which case, now is the time to think about minimizing monotony by maximizing your leftovers. Fresh broccoli is a great addition to any turkey casserole, and kale gives additional nutritional punch to vegetable soup. For those of you dealing with a whole lotta ham, don’t overlook the wintery deliciousness of purple hull and lady cream peas. On the other hand, sometimes the beauty of leftovers is not having to cook anything at all. In that case, consider elevating your day-after sandwiches with some garlic and chive or altus port farmer’s cheese.
Whatever you do with your leftovers, you can’t go wrong unless you don’t get your order in before The Market closes.

We will reopen the Market on Friday evening November 28th. Thank you all for supporting small independent farms.
Martin's Farmstand: Thanksgiving
What a lovely day! There is still arugula, kale, spinach and parsley that is good out in the field. The snow saved things from the cold. And of course there is lots of root crops etc in the coolers.
As long as you are ordering product that is listed as Daniel and Mendy Martin it is OK if you pick it up early. Just leave us know which day and about what time you wish to come. Daniel
Old99Farm: Old 99 Farm, week of Nov 23, 2014
As of Nov 23th, we can offer 60+ items including the following crops: mint, beet tops, spinach, beet root (two varieties, Detroit Red and regular), yellow plum tomatoes, chard, celeriac, eggplant, carrots, collards, squashes (hubbard, butternut, Sibley, buttercup) summer squashes (spaghetti and delicata) and kale.
Camelia is cooking prepared foods from our produce: garlic pesto, cucumber relish, quiches (on order). Arugula Pesto is her latest and it’s a delight, but you can make your own too! We have homemade grape jelly too from the Mazzonis next door.
Beef cuts are now available, a total of about 500 lbs of pastured meats. There are several geese in the freezer. I have 6 lambs in the freezer, still have about 10 chickens as well as veal.
I have listed pork now so that you can order specific cuts and I’ll know how to instruct the butcher: pork coming in December.
My current price is $6/XL doz. I sell mixed size dozens that weigh at least 588 gm (medium), 672 grams, the ‘large’ size dozen, and Extra Large, 770gm plus carton. Please bring in recycled cartons.
The first crop is sold out, I have several boxes ready to extract from the summer crop. You bring your jar and fill it here, or buy in prefilled mason jars.
Thank you to all bringing in recycled egg cartons, hold off now, I have several months supply.
Celeriac is a celery that is grown for the root, to be eaten like other root crops: mashed, in stews, steamed, etc. I like it in bone broths and soups. We have a good crop in storage now. See this site for recipes: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/glossary/celeriac
Well, I must echo and quote JM Greer in the essay I just gave a link to. There is much to despair about and its so easy to give up, to live for the moment and let the devil take the hindmost. But that is a tough way to live out the rest of our years and a stern sentence for our children. So please consider reading these two essays, with the conclusion in mind:
“As for me—well, all things considered, I find that being alive beats the stuffing out of the alternative, and that’s true even though I live in a troubled age in which scientific and technological progress show every sign of grinding to a halt in the near future, and in which warfare, injustice, famine, pestilence, and the collapse of widely held beliefs are matters of common experience. The notion that life has to justify itself to me seems, if I may be frank, faintly silly, and so does the comparable claim that I have to justify my existence to it, or to anyone else. Here I am; I did not make the world; quite the contrary, the world made me, and put me in the irreducibly personal situation in which I find myself. Given that I’m here, where and when I happen to be, there are any number of things that I can choose to do, or not do; and it so happens that one of the things I choose to do is to prepare, and help others prepare, for the long decline of industrial civilization and the coming of the dark age that will follow it.”
