This week we will be at market with our certified organic beans in the following varieties:
Black Calypso – Plump, with creamy texture. Slightly nutty, mellow taste, something like a russet potato.
Black Turtle – Common black bean with a thick skin and a meaty texture.
Black Valentine – Taste like kidney beans, great for salads, soups and dips.
Green Flageolet – Creamy, firm texture and a sweet mellow flavor. A quick-cooking bean, they become increasingly creamy the longer you cook them.
Hidatsa Red – Similar to a kidney bean but with a slightly nutty taste, these beans are good in salads, chilis, soups or served with grains.
Jacob’s Cattle – Big and meaty, taste & texture of new potatoes, traditional baked beans, chili.
Marrow – Plump, soft white beans that soak up the flavors of whatever you cook them with. Great soup beans.
Medley – A random assortment of our beans that is great for soup. Also beautiful!
October – Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Painted Lady – Slightly sweet, with a smooth, creamy texture.
Pinto – Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking. Also have a limited supply of split pintos for $1/pound.
Tiger Eye – Rich, hearty flavor, with a smooth texture and tender skins.
Yellow Indian Women – These buttery beans retain their shape well, and are less starchy than some other beans. Good all purpose bean.
Zebra – Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean.
We will also have freshly ground corn meal and fine grits/polenta from our Wapsie Valley certified organic, non-GMO corn. We will also take a small variety of wool products along from our farm’s sheep.

ASPARAGUS! FINALLY, warm weather!
I will be at market with a large quantity of the ONLY Certified Organic Asparagus in
West Michigan!

Shady Side Farm of Holland
*We accept credit & debit cards!
This week we will be at market with our certified organic beans in the following varieties:
Black Calypso – Plump, with creamy texture. Slightly nutty, mellow taste, something like a russet potato.
Black Turtle – Common black bean with a thick skin and a meaty texture.
Black Valentine – Taste like kidney beans, great for salads, soups and dips.
Green Flageolet – Creamy, firm texture and a sweet mellow flavor. A quick-cooking bean, they become increasingly creamy the longer you cook them.
Hidatsa Red – Similar to a kidney bean but with a slightly nutty taste, these beans are good in salads, chilis, soups or served with grains.
Jacob’s Cattle – Big and meaty, taste & texture of new potatoes, traditional baked beans, chili.
Marrow – Plump, soft white beans that soak up the flavors of whatever you cook them with. Great soup beans.
Medley – A random assortment of our beans that is great for soup. Also beautiful!
October – Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Painted Lady – Slightly sweet, with a smooth, creamy texture.
Pinto – Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking. Also have a limited supply of split pintos for $1/pound.
Tiger Eye – Rich, hearty flavor, with a smooth texture and tender skins.
Yellow Indian Women – These buttery beans retain their shape well, and are less starchy than some other beans. Good all purpose bean.
Zebra – Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean.
We will also have freshly ground corn meal and fine grits/polenta from our Wapsie Valley certified organic, non-GMO corn. We will also take a small variety of wool products along from our farm’s sheep.

Asparagus loss: As many of you know, Northern West Michigan asparagus & fruit farmers were hit with devastating freezes over a 2 night period early this week. Our own organic asparagus farmer, Greg Mund of Mund Farms, reports that he lost not only all his early asparagus but his tart cherries and peaches as well to temps that reached down to 22 degrees for over a 5 hour period.
The good news is that the asparagus is regrowing and Greg says he will have a good amount of asparagus for the next markets.

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.

Happy Earth Day!
We love the Earth and are humbled to get to be farmers, working so intimately with it.  True sustainability and nutrient dense soil have been the foundation of our farm.  In an effort to stay in balance with true long term sustainability, (including soil health, financial sustainability, and market demands) we are temporarily scaling down our production.  This will allow us to nourish all aspects of the farm more deeply.  As a result, we will not be attending as many farmers markets, including Sweetwater Market.  This week is our penultimate time vending at Sweetwater.  We are so grateful for the Sweetwater community, and are proud to have been part of it.

My name is Will Pardee and I’m quadriplegic due to a diving accident in 1981. After I returned home from the hospital I was bored with my limited activities and began to try drawing with my mouth, I was excited to learn that God had given me a unknown talent and after a couple years of practice I began displaying at art shows.
I draw a variety of subjects including nautical, animals, country and floral prints and also sell notecards. My drawings are done in pencil for black and white prints and I do add color to some  with colored pencil. I have enjoyed drawing over the years and meeting new people along my journey.
Stop by my booth this week, I’ll have some special sale items!
