Opening Bell: Eggs, Squash, Kale, Cheese

Good afternoon!
If you picked up early enough on Friday, then you may have seen the first yellow squash of the season on the extras table! Squash is a warm weather crop so all of your favorite vegetables will be coming on before too much longer. We have baby jalapeños and tomatoes already set at Cedar rock Ridge, and it looks like it’s going to be a great summer. This week starts the garlic harvest! Garlic is planted in mid-October, and dug in mid-May. Each stalk is cleaned and then hung in bunches of 10 among the cedar trees to dry.

Enjoy some eggs from Funny Farm this week. Nathaniel’s hens (duck and chickens) lay some of the happiest eggs around, thanks to his diligent care.

We’re having another T-shirt giveaway starting tonight! Each item ordered from Ratchford Farms this week will earn you one entry into the giveaway for a stylish large T-shirt featuring Ratchford Farms Buffalo Ranch. For example: Buy 4 packs of ground beef and get 4 entries. A winner will be drawn Friday morning and the winner announced in the Friday Pick-Up Reminder email.

Take your pick of the wonderful, fresh-roasted coffee varieties available now! These were roasted and ground in Rose Bud, Arkansas.

New varieties of Goat Cheese available now from White River Creamery!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

Check out over 700 wonderful items listed right now. See you on Friday!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)
