Like a swimmer on a journey across the straights or a marathoner approaching mile 26 (.2) we are finally on the cusp of our second year at the Sara Hardy Farmers Market, starting tomorrow (for Saturdays at least) in Traverse City.
Please come down and at least say “Hi” and chat as we reconvene for this socio-economic event. I will be there every Saturday morning from 7:30am until 12pm for the next six months. I will have chicken eggs, duck eggs and quail eggs. I will have all of our pork cuts as well as rendered lard. In a few weeks I will have whole rabbits. In 3-4 weeks as well as later this summer (and through the fall) I will have whole chickens, whole ducks and whole turkeys. For those of you who create your own dog food we will have ingredients for you as well (!). Nothing has been, is, nor will be wasted. We will continue to take orders for whole and half hogs. Wholes are currently $2.50 per pound, halves are $3. Later this fall we will have lamb. Next spring (2018) we will have goat meat available. Soon we will have goat milk shares available. All animals are fed non-gmo feed. All but the rabbits and quail are pastured. The rabbits are fed cuttings from around our property–the quail are too vulnerable to predators and the elements for us to keep them outside in the wind and rain. Soon and throughout the summer we will have vegetables, berries (strawberries, raspberries and blueberries) and shiitake mushrooms from our organic garden and logs.
Hope to see you all there!
