Opening Bell: Chicken, Pork, Potatoes, Peppers!


Good afternoon!
If I had to title this post, it might be: the frailty of the farm. Let me explain: one of our growers lost six hens to a varmint on Friday, probably a raccoon. Those birds produced three dozen eggs per week. It will take 6 months or more to replace these egg-layers by ordering new chicks. Sometimes it seems the cards are stacked against chicken farmers. I have found that every critter in the woods wants to eat a chicken so we have to be on high alert all the time they are foraging. Saturday afternoon, my dog, Jackie, was bit by a snake. I didn’t see the snake, but I’m pretty sure it was a hognose snake since I had seen one in the area previously. We called a vet and did some online research for treatment, and I’m happy to report that as of right now, Jackie is doing fine. Slow, but alert and walking, eating, and drinking. I am sure she will be back to guarding her chickens in a few days.

If you are reading this, congratulations! You made it through the excessive heat and can now enjoy pleasant temps this week. Tending to animals and gardens when it’s very hot takes planning and determination. Thanks to our Growers for facing the challenge and keeping production up for us.

Are you planning to watch the 2 debates coming up on July 30 and July 31? If so, how about making some party foods to enjoy, like jalapeno popppers! This year our jalapenos have great jalapeno flavor, and a nice amount of heat. Stuff with cream cheese and wrap with bacon, or stuff with sausage and cheddar cheese. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Grilling season continues. Start with local ground beef or ground pork and add some zesty Beaverfork blend seasoning.
Then just pat out those delicious burgers and cook them on the grill, or pan-fry if it’s too hot outside. We hope to have cantaloupe on the extras table this Friday. Hopefully they won’t get too much rain and split. Come early on Friday for the best selection.
