Good morning! (I’m back…)
So much going on at the farm these days…I hope to see all of you locals at the Sara Hardy Farmers Market tomorrow, as well as every Wednesday and Saturday there between now and the end of October (which just began six hours ago…). I and everyone there need your support–esp. as we go into the winter season. Most physical markets shut down, the few that exist are inaccessible, and yet the expenses continue.
The Sara Hardy also operates online. It did last winter, it has this summer, and it will continue to this winter. The pick up location is TBD but current bets are leaning toward the Chamber of Commerce building downtown on Saturdays.
PLEASE become familiar with this tool and use it. You can always come out to the farm and buy anything–all the time–but the online market is great for those for whom this is not always convenient.
As of this afternoon I will have in stock:
–all lamb cuts
–unsmoked pork cuts
For those of you who don’t do this I strongly encourage you to try it:
Come to the market to plan your meals. Eat what is fresh and in season. Get comfortable with utilizing the array of items that farmers have available now.
If you instead come with a list and if you say don’t find one to any of those items at the market and instead go to say Meijer, Tom’s, Oryana you then aren’t supporting your farmers and honestly–there’s no guarantee those farmers will be around in a few weeks, or months, next season, or a couple of years.
Please eat locally. Always.
More to come!
