Martin's Farmstand:  U-pick strawberry update

We are opening the strawberry patch for u-pick tomorrow morning at 7 am as is our normal pattern. Expect poor picking with a limited amount of ripe berries. The patch was picked thoroughly yesterday and with the cool weather there are not many berries that have ripened today. The next picking will be on Wednesday afternoon starting at 2 pm and they should be much more ripe by then. We also will not be picking for the stand on Monday. I expect to have picked berries available at the stand again on Tuesday afternoon. In other parts of the garden and greenhouse there are lots of scallions, herbs, tomatoes, cucumbers etc. Field lettuce is abundant now. I am putting the romaine lettuce together with the red and green leafy lettuce display and pricing them all @ $1.85 each or three heads for $5. In the greenhouse I planted 10 seeds of a long delicious white cucumber from Johnny seeds. I also planted about 300 seeds of normal green cucumbers. Those 10 white cucumbers are yielding about 3 bushel a week right now which I find impressive. If you close your eyes when you are eating them you would never know they are white as they taste just like any other cucumber. Try one sometime. Daniel

Berea Gardens:  Market Open

Hi Friends,

The market is now opening for orders until 9 AM Tuesday. Our selection is down a little this week as we transition out of our spring crops and enter the summer season, but don’t let that keep you from coming by the market this week. Tom and Kenny are increasing with variety and volume and although their stuff is not listed here, you are sure to find lots of good stuff. Melody, as always, will have lots of good treats, too. We will be very busy this week trying to keep up with blueberry picking. Some of these beautiful gems will be in the muffins Lynnita is baking this week.

Please share our market web address with your health-conscious friends, via text, email, or social media (and/or forward this message). The more healthy members we have, the more variety of produce and product we can provide!

We look forward seeing you on the Porch this Wednesday, June 22th from 5-6:15 pm, with deliveries following. Know that our growers have the hour prior to get their products organized so things might be a bit hectic (and crowded) if
you come early.

PLEASE READ THIS….If you CAN NOT pick up by 6:15pm, please let us know, we can make your orders available with Quinn’s Mercantile so you can stop by and pick them up. If we are NOT notified, your order will be donated and you will be invoiced for the amount of your order. We still need to pay our Growers for their products.

Grower’s News:

Bean Man: Happy Father’s Day! We trust everyone is enjoying the somewhat cooler weather.

We have our full selection of Fresh, Non GMO, Gluten Free products available for you this week. Don’t overlook our Cassava and Coconut Bread Mixes with each package containing 2 packs of dry ingredients (you supply the wet ingredients) to make 1.5+ pound delicious loaves of shortbread which can be sliced thick or thin to your preference. If you prefer a taller loaf more suited to a sandwich, just use a more narrow loaf pan such as the disposable 3.5 wide x 8 long ones found at the grocery store which increase the height from 2.5" to about 3.5". For those looking to reduce carbs, the Coconut Bread checks in at 2.4 net carbs per slice based on 10 slices per loaf and you can reduce the count further with thinner slices. Due to schedule, we won’t be offering the baked loaves this week but they’ll be back soon!

If you’re looking for an easy and light snack, check out our Black Bean Dip Mix – each package comes with 4 packs with each pack making about 3.5 cups of dip – all you need is water and salsa. You can also have sour cream as a side or thin topping if preferred. If you are Gluten Free, try “On The Border” chips found in the grocery store – we’ve tried several and these are really good.

RC Farms: Along with a great assortment of produce and BEEF we now have some popular fruit available and more to come. Find Cantaloupes, Peaches & Cream Corn and Peaches this week. We’ve restocked our Beef selections.

Terry’s Treasures: I have started making beautiful hand painted vases that will let you showcase your own beautiful flowers. Several different color designs or you can request your own color.

Quarter Spring Farm: we have a plethora of plump chickens for your culinary escapades. We just finished processing our first batch of the year, so these are some fine fresh fowl. We also have our usual assortment of skin softening soaps and lotions. And we just introduced a brand new scent of lotion: coconut lime. Now you can smell like the beach, even if you’re actually stuck inland with the rest of us.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: we are back on the market this week with ‘NEW’ Non-GMO pork products, including pork tenderloin, cutlets, and chops, as well as roasts, ground pork, and mild pork sausage (no MSG).
You will notice some packaging changes with the ground products, as our butcher was unable to source the typically tube-like sleeves we are accustomed to getting. Also, this order was from a pig with a higher fat percentage due to its heritage breeding. In the past, if you have needed to add a little oil to fry our sausage or ground pork, this will not be necessary. In fact, you will be able to drain a couple of tablespoons of oil from your skillet. This rendered lard is excellent for sauteing garlic, onions, mushrooms, or cooking eggs. Studies have shown that outdoor, pasture-raised pigs have higher omega 3 and lower saturated fat than commercial pork raised in warehouses on concrete with no access to foraging. As always, Sow’s Ear Piggery pork is non-GMO fed and USDA inspected.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farm): We’ve got onions, radicchio, and giant red mustard! Also check out our pestos, gourmet mustards, and our beautiful wildflower arrangements.

Flying S Farms: This week we have our Fresh Farm Chicken Eggs, Green Garlic Bulbs, Yellow Straight neck Squash, Cucumbers, Onions and Potatoes, Sour Dough Breads, Plain and the our Wheat Bread is Back. Few popular Jams are back with more to come this week – Just Strawberry, Seriously HOT Strawberry, Habanero Peach, Muscadine Grape Jelly and more!

Thank you and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!

Our newsletter and normal ordering will resume July 2

At this time we anticipate being open every week following through the end of July. While we hope it’s not necessary, because of the multiple storms being predicted this season (as storms affect product availability) we may switch to bi-weekly ordering late summer.


RICHTER FARMS:  Thank you everyone for your prayers, notes and concern for me after my car accident. As some of you know my right wrist was severely broken and I have not been able to participate in the market. Good news is I am now in Physical Therapy and getting stronger each week. I have included a picture of my x-ray so you can see how extensive the break was and now with a titanium plate I’m officially a “bionic farmer” ! I look forward to  seeing everyone soon.  Viki Richter 



AVALON FARMS: This is heating up to be a really hot summer. Our little weather station has been recording temperatures over 95 most days, with a heat index of 108. Always thankful for some clouds and a breeze. These temperatures are way too much for snap peas and lettuce. I’m still hoping the sprouting broccoli might manage to make, but don’t hold your breath.

The earliest spaghetti squash are looking nice. (They like heat. Ha ha)

Elephant Garlic is drying under the pole barn. Yeah! The other garlic is not looking great, too hot and wet. I think there is some rot going on. We’ll harvest them in a couple of weeks.


Speaking of Elephant Garlic I’m trying this recipe. 

Elephant Toes (Baked Elephant Garlic)

Baked cloves of the giant elephant garlic, lightly salted and spread on sandwiches or crackers. Also great in vegetables, potatoes or pasta and on meats. Recipe from The Lazy Gastronome.

1 full head elephant garlic
3 Tablespoons olive oil
salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 350° -

Elephant garlic has much larger cloves than regular. Separate those cloves and lay them, unpeeled, in a small baking dish.

Drizzle with olive oil and bake until the cloves are fork tender. Remember the small ones will get done first, so watch them and remove them when they are done.

Once they are soft, remove them from the oven and add some salt to the top. Let them cool before you try to handle them. Carefully remove the skins and the hard ends.

Slice or mash the cloves and serve with crackers. Or store in the refrigerator to use in potatoes, on meats, with vegetables or as a sandwich spread.

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!

uwlD:  This market is preparing to open!
