Cultured Love of Grand Rapids
We’ll have our 5 kraut flavors for sale and sampling: All-organic ingredients, naturally fermented, and probiotic. Never cooked, raw and vegan, with no vinegar or starter culture, our Kraut is good on its own, or added to many other dishes, providing great flavor and nutrients.
· Carry Me Away – Traditional caraway kraut, as you find on a Reuben sandwich. This kraut is closest to what many grandmothers made in large crocks in their basement.
· Dillyicious – Our best-seller. Tastes like a pickle. Onion, garlic, dill, and turmeric. Our “gateway kraut” for those who say “I don’t like sauerkraut”.
· Purple Hot & Spicy – Onion, garlic and Cayenne. Hot for some, not so hot for others.
· Curryosity – We love India and Indian food. This kraut is a highly versatile addition to many dishes, or by itself.
· Root for Ginger – Our nod to Kim-chee, with similar ingredients — Carrot, radish, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Just a little heat.
We’ll also have “Good Food Good Mood” t-shirts and totes.

Cultured Love of Grand Rapids
We’ll have our 5 kraut flavors for sale and sampling: All-organic ingredients, naturally fermented, and probiotic. Never cooked, raw and vegan, with no vinegar or starter culture, our Kraut is good on its own, or added to many other dishes, providing great flavor and nutrients.
· Carry Me Away – Traditional caraway kraut, as you find on a Reuben sandwich. This kraut is closest to what many grandmothers made in large crocks in their basement.
· Dillyicious – Our best-seller. Tastes like a pickle. Onion, garlic, dill, and turmeric. Our “gateway kraut” for those who say “I don’t like sauerkraut”.
· Purple Hot & Spicy – Onion, garlic and Cayenne. Hot for some, not so hot for others.
· Curryosity – We love India and Indian food. This kraut is a highly versatile addition to many dishes, or by itself.
· Root for Ginger – Our nod to Kim-chee, with similar ingredients — Carrot, radish, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Just a little heat.
We’ll also have “Good Food Good Mood” t-shirts and totes.

New Vendor!
Kandyland Dairy of Ludington
Here at KandyLand Dairy we are a 100% non-gmo farm.  We raise all of our own hay and buy all non-gmo grains.  We pasture raise all of our animals and they are given the choice in the winter to go out or stay in.
We are a Grade A farm and a Grade A Creamery and we make our famous Feta, Chevre and seasonal flavors of the Chevre, and Crottin.  We also make a drinkable Yogurt from Goats milk.  We are working with Country Dairy on buying some cow milk to make cream cheese for those that don’t like goat cheese.
We do several farmers markets a week during the summer months, and are very excited to finally be joining the Sweetwater market!  If anyone has any questions please don’t hesitate to come visit our booth and chat.  We have lots of fun photos we share at market so be sure to stop by and check out “the girls”.
Kandy and Steve are the owners and Kandy is the cheesemonger.  Elisabeth is our helper and loves our girls! She also helps us with the cheese plant, but mainly our milker so we can come to markets!
Well that sums us up and we look forward to meeting all of you at the market.

Cultured Love of Grand Rapids
We’ll have our 5 kraut flavors for sale and sampling: All-organic ingredients, naturally fermented, and probiotic. Never cooked, raw and vegan, with no vinegar or starter culture, our Kraut is good on its own, or added to many other dishes, providing great flavor and nutrients.
· Carry Me Away – Traditional caraway kraut, as you find on a Reuben sandwich. This kraut is closest to what many grandmothers made in large crocks in their basement.
· Dillyicious – Our best-seller. Tastes like a pickle. Onion, garlic, dill, and turmeric. Our “gateway kraut” for those who say “I don’t like sauerkraut”.
· Purple Hot & Spicy – Onion, garlic and Cayenne. Hot for some, not so hot for others.
· Curryosity – We love India and Indian food. This kraut is a highly versatile addition to many dishes, or by itself.
· Root for Ginger – Our nod to Kim-chee, with similar ingredients — Carrot, radish, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Just a little heat.
We’ll also have “Good Food Good Mood” t-shirts and totes.

Bloom Ferments of Grand Rapids
I will be there with Bloom Ferments kombucha, bottles of jasmine, ginger and lavender hibiscus, and growlers of ginger. I will also have sign up sheets for my upcoming Happy Tummy Workshops, and handmade glass terrariums with succulents from Succulent Cultivations.

We will have raw honey and chicken eggs.
We keep a variety of ducks, including muskovy (pure bred), and a combination of runners, Khaki Campbells, pekins, Cayugas, and rouens.  It is prime duck egg season and we will also have a few goose eggs from our American Buff geese.
While spring is officially here, we have no calves to report yet but expect our cows to start calving around the 8th.

See you Saturday!

I will not be at market next Saturday, April 2. But this Saturday I will be at market with our 16 varieties of certified organic dry beans. Have you tried our Hidatsa Red beans? These beans were grown by the Hidatsa native peoples in the Missouri River Valley of North Dakota. Similar to a kidney bean, they make a great side dish to any grilled meat, and are also good in dips, salads, chilis, soups, or served with grains. Stop by the table and ask for the Red Beans and Rice recipe card that calls for Hidatsa Red beans.

I will also be offering aged cheese from Grassfields Farms in Coopersville. Grassfields Farm is an organic dairy farm, and their cheese is made from their organic unpasturized milk.

Please let me know if you need wool items, or any bulk (over 2#) amounts of the beans by emailing me before 5 pm on Friday at info@shadysidefarm.com.

Pine Row Farm of Rothbury
We spotted a Sand Hill Crane this morning (I first heard them the 28th of Feb.), heard spring peepers yesterday evening, collected 4 duck eggs yesterday, photographed the 1st crocus Tues., had a polite little worker bee ride on my shoulder for awhile on Mon. (I did all the talking, tho), and the killdeer announced their arrival Monday morning.

We have chicken eggs aplenty for Saturday, as well as a few duck eggs.  We are sold out of soup bones, oxtail, roasts, and kabob meat.  For a meaty soup with bone broth, we have shank with bone.  Short ribs also remain in stock, along with burger, burger patties, stew meat, brisket, a wide selection of steaks with and without bone, liver, and tongue.

We have several sizes of raw honey available.  Aaron and Isaac leave at 5a Fri. to take in both days of the MI Beekeepers Conference in East Lansing.  Aaron is 14 and it’s his third year attending; Isaac is 12 and it’s his second time.  (I’m bracing for the whirlwind of excited information I’ll hear when they get home Sat. night!)  We will be working hives the next time weather cooperates.  Initial assessment is encouraging for colony survival this winter.

Looking forward to seeing everyone Saturday morning,
Sarah
