Opening Bell: Pork, Eggs, Apples, Honey!


Good evening!
We will have market every Friday in December! Hopefully we’ll see everyone often. When it’s cold outside, (like right now!) we enjoy making a pot of purple hull peas. Saute a little bacon from Bar C, then add diced onions. After 10 minutes, add a pound of purple hull peas from Green Acres Atkins, a cup of water, 3 dehydrated smoked jalapenos and a tablespoon of Beaverfork Blend from Cedar Rock Ridge, and a ham hock or two from Bar C. Let that simmer for 2 hours. Then take the ham hocks out, pick out the meat and put it back in the pot. Serve with cornbread. MMMmmmmm!

This week’s EXTRAS table will have lots of special puppy treats for all the dogs on your gift list. Come early on Friday for the best selection. There will also be 5 jars of spicy dilled cauliflower pickles! KMG Farms even has a few turkeys available, but don’t delay.

We’re having our 3rd giveaway starting tonight! Each item ordered from Ratchford Farms this week will earn you one entry into the giveaway for a stylish large blue 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.

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 525 wonderful items listed right now. See you on Friday!

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

The market is now OPEN for orders. Click here to start shopping:

Opening Bell: Duck Eggs, Apples, Cheese, Cauliflower!


Good evening!

Now that all the Thanksgiving frenzy is over, it’s time to start planning for Christmas! The holidays are great for visiting with family and eating lots of delicious food, and we’re very lucky to have so much variety being produce locally. We will be open all FIVE Fridays in December to supply you with lots of fresh, local goodies. Several of your Growers have high tunnels which extend the growing season for their crops. Look for all the cole crops, like Cauliflower, Broccoli, Cabbage, Kale, etc.

We haven’t had a freeze yet at Cedar Rock Ridge, so we are still enjoying fresh tomatoes, bell peppers, basil, etc. If you’d like to enjoy the taste of summer all winter long, why not ask Santa for a food dehydrator? A hearty stew with cherry tomato halves and jalapeno and bell pepper slices tastes so good in February!

Volunteer Opportunity! Because many of our wonderful market workers are college students who will be going home for the holidays, we have some 4-hour shifts available on Friday, December 23rd and 30th. Maybe you have a teenager that would like to earn $20 in food credit? We can put them to work, and they’ll have a great time guaranteed! Call or text Steve for details or questions.

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 500 wonderful items listed right now. See you on Friday!

Come early on Friday for the best selection from the EXTRAS table. And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)
