We have several new items on the market to make you aware of. Snack-n-Joy is offering their gluten free baking mix for those that want to bake with a gluten free blend. It is a mixture of fresh milled Buckwheat, Amaranth and Millet.

Joyful Noise Acres Farm is offering 1/2 hog options for their pasture raised pigs. You will get about 80-90 lbs. of meat. An excellent way to save money while stocking the freezer.

See you Wednesday,

Time to buy groceries.

The on line market is open for ordering.
This week we have many delicious baked goods, fresh bacon and sausage, loads of fresh beef in the freezer, a fresh shipment of organic butter and fresh herbs are coming in.
When cooking with fresh herbs, you will use more than if they were dried, but if you still have some left, let them dry on the lowest setting of your oven with the door cracked. Allow to cool then place in a sealable jar. Do not crush the leaves until you are ready to use the herb. They will retain more of the flavor.
Blessings and thank you for supporting locally grown.

Good morning to you!
This week was a happy food week for me. *Farm Fresh Foods *made a wonderful Spring Quinoa Asparagus Salad that we had for lunch and Strawberry Gallett with a cup of tea and a friend for an afternoon break. Our lives revolve around food and so do wonderful memories. This week begins the remembrance of Passover, Living Water and Daily Bread, how joyous a celebration symbolized with food. Our prayers are for you to be fed by and the Living Water and Daily Bread, Jesus.

We have some wonderful food offerings again this week, Four Mile Farm * beef, pork from *Joyful Noise Acres Farm and lamb from Four Mile Farm and Cedar Rock Dairy. We do have some bones in the freezer, Beef and pork shanks and lamb bones for your broth making. Just ask when you get here. The butter is running low with only a few unsalted left but more will be in in 2 weeks.

There is still room in the fermented beverages class for April 11, 10-12. Go to the Event tab on The Market to sign up. Come thirsty!

Weekly Recipe:
I am not a casserole person but this was easy and nutritious and hard to pass up when I was in a hurry Saturday night.
Cabbage and Pork Casserole

3 cups thinly sliced cabbage
1 small onion, thinly slices, 2 cloves minced garlic
1 pound hot sausage (leftover ham, stew pork, mild sausage will work also)
2 Tbls. Butter
2 Tbls. Flour
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Cheese

Cook sausage until done and set aside. Leave 1 Tbls. Grease in pan and sauté the onion and garlic and cabbage until lightly steamed. I added a little water and put the lid on for 5 minutes. Melt butter in a smaller pan, add flour and cook until butter is absorbed by the flour then add the milk and continue to whish until incorporated well and beginning to thicken. Add the grated cheese and stir well. Remove from heat. Now, grease a 13×9 pan with butter. Mix all the ingredients together, stirring well and pour into baking pan. Bake covered for 30 minutes at 350. Uncover and cook a few more minutes. Serve warm with a loaf of fresh bread and butter for a great meal.
You may need to add seasoning if using anything other than sausage. I let the hot sausage be the seasoning and it was perfect.

Blessings to you from all our farms,
