Farm News of the Week


Sow’s Ear Piggery has new listings this week!

Currently available: Packages of 1" pork chops; pork cutlets; pork shoulder roasts; mild and spicy breakfast sausage, and Italian sausage. As always, our pork is from free-range pigs fed non-GMO feed and fresh vegetables.

***Important note: This pork is especially lean, from a different heritage breed we experimented with. Please keep in mind there is little fat on these cuts and sausage blends. We recommend using marinades, bastes, and methods of cooking that include fat/oil to insure moist pork.

These products (and possibly some additional items) will be listed for the two upcoming weeks prior to Thanksgiving week. However, the week of Thanksgiving we will be unable to deliver, so please plan ahead. (Hint: pork sausage dressing is a yummy side dish on the Thanksgiving table.)

(Top, L to R) Pork chops, pork cutlets.
(Bottom, L to R) Shoulder roast, breakfast sausage.

Deposits are now due for:

Nature’s Wealth’s pasture raised turkeys for Thanksgiving! Take the stress out of Thanksgiving preparations by placing your online pre-order today!

Farm News of the Week

Well… not a “vacation” exactly. Albert Lynn wishes to thank the market customers for a great first season, and says he will see us in the spring. His fields are ready for a rest now, in preparation for spring planting, which is really just “around the corner.” However, he has recently harvested a great supply of sweet potatoes and should have them available for several months. It’s time to eat our fall and winter veggies, folks!

Solace Farm has added several new cuts of Scottish Highland beef to the market. I’m sorry we don’t have any photos of this delicious meat to show.


Dogwood Valley Greenhouse has added a package of 20 Natural Pine Cones from White Pines. These will be perfect for making fall or Christmas themed decorations. We will also open our Christmas wreath and kissing ball orders next week; a $20 deposit will put your name on the list for a late December delivery.

Farm News of the Week




Pure apple cider is here from the Altamont Mennonites, listed under “Processed Foods.” They have also added their delicious carrots in the “Vegetables” category.

Frontier Family Farms has some strawberries, and the spinach probably is in for fall (it depends on whether it bolts in this extreme heat).


Dogwood Valley Greenhouse news:

What beautiful fall weather! Perfect time for planting perennials! It’s been really dry, and I still don’t see rain in the forecast, so you will need to water-water-water! But the weather is great and the ground still nice and warm, which will encourage plants to put down good strong roots. These new roots will help them to come through the winter in fine shape, and bloom profusely next season.

New bloomers this last week or so include: Anemones in both white and a beautiful deep rose, and Turtlehead, aptly named for its very unusual flower shape. But the star of the show has to be the fall-blooming Azaleas, just beginning this last week. One of the shorter pinks is now in bloom (listed with throat markings), and will reliably bloom again in spring. Another is showing buds, and I think will be a deeper pink, but time will tell. It might be listed next week.




Important Ordering and Pickup Information

Ordering will be open until TUESDAY at 10 pm, and your order will be available for pickup at your choice of the following:
