Hi Folks,
It’s Thanksgiving week and we have just taken the last batch of sauerkraut out of the crocks!  We are thankful for this abundant year.  With the help of some deer fencing we had a prolific cabbage crop.  Listening to the gentle glug, glug of the fermentation process as cabbage is transformed into crisp, tangy sauerkraut has added to the richness of our farm life.  This final batch of the season is out in the sales shed along with our Old Fashioned Quince Jelly.
Garlic Herb powders including Plain Garlic, Garlic Basil, Fiesta Blend and Seasonal Seasoning are available to spice up your holiday meals.  It’s potato sale time!
20 Lbs for $20,  10 lbs for $11.00  Varieites include German Butterball, a smoooth yellow skin wwith deep yellow interior, good for mashing, baking, cottage fries, an all around delicous potato.  Our red potato is Chieftain with a smooth red skin and creamy white interior.
Fingerling potatoes include Russian Banana and Peruvian Purple.  Both are delicious roasted, steamed, in stews.  Baked, one of our local bakeries has been using them in a potato cheese bread.  10 lbs for $12.50.
Carrots, beets, onions, garlic  are also on the table or in the refrigerator.
Come on by, stock up for winter and your holiday meals.
