The Roaring Mouse of Hart
This cooler weather is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee or tea! Either way you like it, we have you covered! Every week we have 4-6 varieties of freshly roasted coffee, and 5+ varieties of loose leaf tea. We also have some amazing fair-trade organic chocolate barks, and chocolate covered coffee beans! We can only bring a few varieties of our chocolates to the market each week, so be sure to check out our list on Facebook and pre-order if there is something specific you want.

We are not planning to attend market on Saturday Sept 5 for Labor Day Weekend, so stock up this week!

Featured coffee of the week! This week we are featuring our Guatemala Antigua FTO. This is a delicious light-medium roast, with a full creamy body, and a mild acidity. The aroma is floral, and the flavor is complex, with layers of baking spices like cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.

We will also plan to bring our Ethiopia Amaro Gayo, Guatemala FTO, Papua New Guinea FTO, Colombia FTO, and Sumatra Decaf.

As always, we sell our coffee by the ounce so you can get the perfect amount to use while it is the freshest. We also have gift certificates; the perfect gift for a coffee lover!
Come taste the fresh difference! Coffee is seasonal, so expect some variety. We try not to roast too much extra in order to keep the coffee fresh every week.

Our list has gotten too long to include here, so check out our Facebook page for the full list of what we have available.

Email us to order in advance, and we will have it bagged up and ready for you. Advance orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your favorite coffee before you get there, and speed up your shopping if you are in a hurry!

Bonao Cacao of Muskegon
This Bonao cacao is raw, organic and carefully hand picked to insure premium quality. The farm located in the Dominican Republic uses earth friendly practices and even holds “The cacao experience” where people can come see the farm, learn and have fun participating in the farming! Cocoa comes from the cacao tree and then is roasted and processed to make the powder and chocolates everyone loves. However, during this process many of the nutrients and antioxidants are lost. Cacao is the same as cocoa but in a raw form, allowing the beans to stay in it’s natural state to give you the best benefits possible. Come check us out this Saturday for a sample of the bean itself and to learn more! We have beans, powder, nibs, butter and tasty healthy chocolates! We look forward to seeing everybody Saturday!

Black Turtle – Common black bean with a thick skin and a meaty texture. We’ve got a lot of these beans left, so they are discounted $1 a pound while supplies last.
Black Valentine – Taste like kidney beans, great for salads, soups and dips.
Hutterite Soup – Comfort food, cook fast, creamy soup, baby food.
Jacob’s Cattle – Big and meaty, taste & texture of new potatoes, traditional baked beans, chili. We’ve got a lot of these beans left, so they are discounted $2 a pound while supplies last.
Marrow – (Almost gone) Plump, soft white beans that soak up the flavors of whatever you cook them with.
October – (Almost gone) Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Painted Lady – (Almost gone) Slightly sweet bean, smooth, creamy texture, good in everything.
Pinto – (Almost gone) Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking.
Zebra – (Almost gone) Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean.
Please let us know ahead of time if you’d like to order 5# bags of any one variety, so that we can pre-bag those and bring them along.
In addition, we offer Grassfield Farms organic raw aged cheeses in the following flavors:
NEW! Smoked Gouda – I’ll have samples along. Sounds delicious!
Aged Cheddar – You asked, and we listened! A sharp cheddar, aged a year. Award-winning!
Country Dill – A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.
Crofters – This delicious cheese is aged 1 year with a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.
Edam – A variety of Gouda made with skim milk: Elastic, yet firm, this flawless low fat cheese is our best melter, improving any dish.
Garlic & Onion – The most aromatic of herbs. Don’t be the only one in the room to eat this spiced Gouda or you soon will be.
Gouda – A traditional handmade cheese in keeping with West Michigan’s (and our family’s) Dutch culture.

Lamont Cheddar – A rare, natural rind English cheese, named for the Grand River’s first settlement near our farm.
Leyden – Originally from the Rhine Valley, now the Grand River Valley; cumin perfectly compliments this aged Dutch cheese.
Cheese Sticks – Want to try some cheese, but don’t need a whole 8 ounces? We’ll have a few cheese sticks along each week, in a variety of cheese types, for $2 each.
I’ll also bring along some hand-dyed yarn for fall/winter knitting projects. This wool or wool/nylon blend yarn is from our sheep, hand-dyed by us. Stop by and see what we’ve got!

Meadow View Goat Dairy of Fremont
We’ll be bringing our Sweet Corn, Incredible, and usual assortment of fresh and aged Chevre’s this Saturday!
Chevreʹ  Fresh chevre with a nice spreading consistency, perfect for sandwich toppings and cooking. Cherry Capital Foods of Traverse City says  ” The chèvre produced by Meadow View has a pitch perfect acidity on the palate that becomes gently sweet and milky with a grassy note on the finish.”
Seasoned Chevreʹ                                                    
Our fresh Chevre available in your favorite flavorings: Blueberry Vanilla (great on a morning bagel!) Hickory-smoked bacon Bits, Garlic, Italian Herb, & Hot Pepper
Feta                                                                                       
A smooth and creamy feta which is low in salt and rich in fresh goat milk flavor. The brining process gives feta cheese a salty, tangy flavor and a crumbly consistency. Feta cheese can be served as a table cheese, used in baking savory dishes, or served as an appetizer or in salads. The classic Greek salad is made with Feta cheese. In crumbles or cubes for easy slicing.
Tomme de Fremont                                     
Our first aged cheese is quickly becoming a customer favorite! Developed from a French recipe, Tomme is a lower fat mold ripened cheese, aged at least 60 days. This gives the cheese a stronger flavor & firmer texture than the fresh Chevres, perfect for slicing.
Dutch Kase                                                               
A Meadow View Dairy original! If you are looking for a nicely aged but milder version of our Tomme, this is the cheese for you. Vacuum sealed without mold and aged at least 60 days.
Marco Similar to Dutch Kase but pasteurized and vacuum sealed, it comes in Pepper, Sage, Italian & Garlic.
Other items from our farm:
We’ll also have eggs from our free-range, GMO-free flock.
We will be at market ONLY the last Saturday of the month.  Hope to see you this week, thank you!

He then purchased a conventional farm in Coopersville and for the past three years has been transforming it. In his words: “To say it straight, Blackbird Farms grows food for people. Good, honest food, grown using only natural and sustainable practices. More specifically, we grow over a hundred varieties of vegetables on our sixteen-acre farm just north of Coopersville, Michigan. We are surely fresh and local, but, deeper than these buzzwords, the heart of what we do is health. We trust that our calling is to care for green, growing things in a manner that generates health in the soil, in the environment, in human bodies, and in communities ecological, social, and cultural. Finally, we strive to do this work with a sense of hospitality, delight, and gratitude. So, in other words: Welcome. Enjoy. Thank you!”
This week Blackbird Farm will plan to bring heirloom tomatoes, multi-color cherry tomatoes, green beans, mini-cabbages, carrots, beets, potatoes, onions, and garlic, as well as all manner of cut flowers.

Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart
Greetings from Laughing Tree Brick Oven Bakery—

This beautiful boule weighs in at right around 2 pounds…  Larger than any of our other loaves it’s the perfect pick if you’ve got a crowd to feed.  Made with an organic germ-restored wheat flour (a flour that’s got the germ and the endosperm–but no bran), and an organic Michigan-grown rye flour, this bread is sumptuously supple. You just won’t believe how moist and soft the crumb (the interior) stays for days and days.
Available at market this weekend: $7.50 for each whopping loaf.  (We sell half loaves too of course…)

Bonao Cacao of Muskegon

Welcome Michael and Nicole Muenstermann! They will join us Saturday  to introduce an amazing super-food, bursting with antioxidants…Raw organic cacao! “Our passion for chocolate led us to discover a small family farm in a city named Bonao in the Dominican Republic. This Bonao cacao is raw, organic and carefully hand picked to insure premium quality. The farm uses earth friendly practices and even holds “The cacao experience” where people can come see the farm, learn and have fun participating in the farming! Cocoa comes from the cacao tree and then is roasted and processed to make the powder and chocolates everyone loves. However, during this process many of  the nutrients and antioxidants are lost. Cacao is the same as cocoa but in a raw form, allowing the beans to stay in it’s natural state to give you the best benefits possible. Come check us out this Saturday for a sample of the bean itself and to learn more! We have beans, powder, nibs, butter and tasty healthy chocolates! We look forward to seeing everybody Saturday!”

Chili – Gouda with Red Chili flakes, this mild and creamy cheese has delightful spice without being too hot. SALE this week on this flavor only–$7.

And we will have our certified organic non-GMO corn along in three different options:

Finally, I will have our wool dryer balls along. We will have a price increase after this week, so if you are thinking about buying some for yourself or as a gift, stop bythis Saturday.

Marrow – (Almost gone) Creamy bean, good in soups and baked beans.
October – (Almost gone) Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Painted Lady – Slightly sweet bean, smooth, creamy texture, good in everything.

Aged Cheddar – You asked, and we listened! A sharp cheddar, aged a year. Award-winning!
Chili – Gouda with Red Chili flakes, this mild and creamy cheese has delightful spice without being too hot.
Country Dill – A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.
Crofters – This delicious cheese is aged 1 year with a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.
Edam – It’s back! A variety of Gouda made with skim milk: Elastic, yet firm, this flawless low fat cheese is our best melter, improving any dish.

Lamont Cheddar – A rare, natural rind English cheese, named for the Grand River’s first settlement near our farm.
Leyden – Originally from the Rhine Valley, now the Grand River Valley; cumin perfectly compliments this aged Dutch cheese.

And we will have our certified organic non-GMO corn along in two different options:

Now retired from teaching, Jim’s farming is certified organic and his children, Meranda, Wesley and Kyle (all in their twenties), have returned home to help with the farm and selling products at farmers’ markets.  These products include the Powerhouse Muffins, several variations of tofu cookies, which usually surprise customers with their tastiness, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, hard red whole wheat flour, and the wheat grain or berries from which the flour is grown.

Meadow View Goat Dairy of Fremont
NEW! Colby Goat Cheese!
We’ve had many requests to try a Colby cheese and we think you’ll like this new addition to our cheese line! Stop by and try a sample!
Chevreʹ  Fresh chevre with a nice spreading consistency, perfect for sandwich toppings and cooking. Cherry Capital Foods of Traverse City says  ” The chèvre produced by Meadow View has a pitch perfect acidity on the palate that becomes gently sweet and milky with a grassy note on the finish.”
Seasoned Chevreʹ                                                    
Our fresh Chevre available in your favorite flavorings: Blueberry Vanilla (great on a morning bagel!) Hickory-smoked bacon Bits, Garlic, Italian Herb, & Hot Pepper
Feta                                                                                       
A smooth and creamy feta which is low in salt and rich in fresh goat milk flavor. The brining process gives feta cheese a salty, tangy flavor and a crumbly consistency. Feta cheese can be served as a table cheese, used in baking savory dishes, or served as an appetizer or in salads. The classic Greek salad is made with Feta cheese. In crumbles or cubes for easy slicing.
Tomme de Fremont                                     
Our first aged cheese is quickly becoming a customer favorite! Developed from a French recipe, Tomme is a lower fat mold ripened cheese, aged at least 60 days. This gives the cheese a stronger flavor & firmer texture than the fresh Chevres, perfect for slicing.
Dutch Kase                                                               
A Meadow View Dairy original! If you are looking for a nicely aged but milder version of our Tomme, this is the cheese for you. Vacuum sealed without mold and aged at least 60 days.
Marco Similar to Dutch Kase but pasteurized and vacuum sealed, it comes in Pepper, Sage, Italian & Garlic.
Other items from our farm:
We’ll also have eggs from our free-range, GMO-free flock.

Come and get a fresh brewed-to-order cup of our freshly roasted coffee! Get a ceramic cup to enjoy at the market for $1 or a to-go cup for $3.
As always, we sell our coffee by the ounce so you can get the perfect amount to use while it is the freshest. We also have gift certificates; the perfect gift for a coffee lover!
In the roaster this week:
Featured Coffee of the Week!  Papua New Guinea FTO – Low acid, with notes of caramel and nuts. A good, strong medium-dark roast. Check out our facebook page to learn more about our Coffee of the Week program.
Ethiopia Amaro Gayo Org. – A deliciously fruity light roast, this coffee has notes of strawberry and brown sugar. The aroma reminds me of fresh strawberry pie!
Colombia FTO – Slightly bitter, but with a nice balance of sweetness, this coffee has notes of toasted marshmallow and roasted nuts. We are roasting this to a medium-dark level, for those who like a little edge to the cup.
Guatemala FTO – A deliciously sweet, low acid coffee with milk chocolate and caramel notes, and a full body. Roasted to a medium level, this coffee is great with or without milk.
Decaffeinated Peru FTO – rich and sweet, with chocolate and caramel notes. A very delicious decaf! This coffee was decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process. It is a natural, chemical free process which allows the bean to retain much of its unique flavor.
Come taste the fresh difference!
Coffee is seasonal, so expect some variety. We try not to roast too much extra in order to keep the coffee fresh every week.
Call or text (231)742-0229 or email titus@theroaringmouse.com to order in advance, and we will have it bagged up and ready for you. Advance orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your favorite coffee before you get some!

Stuart Family Organics of Custer
Jim Stuart, founder and CEO of Stuart Family Organics, grew up on his parents’ farm eighteen miles southeast of Ludington, Michigan.  For over 25 years he has made his own bread and other baked goods from his own hard red wheat, working at farming mainly during the summers, teaching English in Scottville, Michigan during the rest of the year.
Now retired from teaching, Jim’s farming is certified organic and his children, Meranda, Wesley and Kyle (all in their twenties), have returned home to help with the farm and selling products at farmers’ markets.  These products include the Powerhouse Muffins, several variations of tofu cookies, which usually surprise customers with their tastiness, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, hard red whole wheat flour, and the wheat grain or berries from which the flour is grown.
Products at this week’s market include:
100% Organic Hard Red Winter Wheat Flour
100% Organic Hard Red Winter Wheat Berries
Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been snatching a few moments here and there over the last few months to weave. This week I’ll bring some traditional rag rugs that I’ve made on my floor loom. Two of my favorite materials to work with are recycled denim and corduroy. Something new, useful and beautiful made from something old.

Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart
Greetings from Laughing Tree Brick Oven Bakery—
We finally got to have a round of strawberry shortcake this weekend while watching the Women’s World Cup Finals…  Holy moly!  What a game!  And with that grand finale, we bid the Vanilla Shortcakes “Adieu” until next year…  We hope you got a chance to enjoy one of these treats while they were here.
This weekend brings the oh-so-tasty Cobmoosa Onion Rye ($6) to the market.  Have we mentioned lately that our Kamut is still our favorite toast for breakfast?  This wholegrain beauty packs a flavorful, nutritional punch—fermented over 20 hours, this loaf is loaded with minerals and protein.  I eat 3-4 slices every day with cashew butter, ground flax, and rhubarb jam…  We just can’t get enough of this bread!

New coffee and a new display! We were busy on our week off, and made some changes to our display. Also we have new coffees from Guatemala, Colombia, and Ethiopia.
We are still working on our teas. This week we will have the same black and green teas available. Hopefully soon we will be adding more.
Come by to learn how to brew better coffee using the French Press or a pour-over cone. We have both for sale, as well as filters for the cone. This week we will also be showcasing the Aeropress!
Come and get a fresh brewed-to-order cup of our freshly roasted coffee! Get a ceramic cup to enjoy at the market for $1 or a to-go cup for $3.
As always, we sell our coffee by the ounce so you can get the perfect amount to use while it is the freshest. We also have gift certificates; the perfect gift for a coffee lover!
In the roaster this week:
New! Colombia FTO – Similar in taste to the Guatemala, but with more of a brown sugar and honey sweetness, and less of the chocolate.
New! Guatemala FTO – A deliciously sweet, low acid replacement for our Peru. Milk chocolate and caramel notes, with a full body. Roasted to a medium level, this coffee is great with or without milk.
New! Ethiopia Amaro Gayo Org. – A deliciously fruity light roast, this coffee has notes of strawberry and brown sugar. The aroma reminds me of fresh strawberry pie! This coffee is grown, harvested, processed, and exported by Ethiopia’s only female miller/exporter Asnakech Thomas. She is dedicated to improving the quality of life of women and children in the area, and is working toward building a hospital. She is also dedicated to producing the highest quality organic coffee.
Papua New Guinea FTO – Low acid, with notes of caramel and nuts. A good, strong medium-dark roast.
Decaffeinated Peru FTO – rich and sweet, with chocolate and caramel notes. A very delicious decaf! This coffee was decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process. It is a natural, chemical free process which allows the bean to retain much of its unique flavor.
Come taste the fresh difference!
Call or text (231)742-0229 or email titus@theroaringmouse.com to order in advance, and we will have it bagged up and ready for you. Advance orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your favorite coffee before you get some!

This week we will be at market with our certified organic beans, all harvested last fall, in the following varieties:
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.
Hutterite Soup – Comfort food, cook fast, creamy soup, baby food.
Jacob’s Cattle – Big and meaty, taste & texture of new potatoes, traditional baked beans, chili.
Marrow – (Almost gone) Creamy bean, good in soups and baked beans.
October – (Almost gone) Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Painted Lady – Slightly sweet bean, smooth, creamy texture, good in everything.
Pinto – Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking.
Zebra – (Almost gone) Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean

Aged Cheddar – You asked, and we listened! A sharp cheddar, aged a year. Award-winning!
Chili – Gouda with Red Chili flakes, this mild and creamy cheese has delightful spice without being too hot.
Country Dill – A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.
Crofters – This delicious cheese is aged 1 year with a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.
Edam – It’s back! A variety of Gouda made with skim milk: Elastic, yet firm, this flawless low fat cheese is our best melter, improving any dish.
Garlic & Onion – The most aromatic of herbs. Don’t be the only one in the room to eat this spiced Gouda or you soon will be.
Gouda – A traditional handmade cheese in keeping with West Michigan’s (and our family’s) Dutch culture.
Lamont Cheddar – A rare, natural rind English cheese, named for the Grand River’s first settlement near our farm.
Leyden – Originally from the Rhine Valley, now the Grand River Valley; cumin perfectly compliments this aged Dutch cheese.
Cheese Sticks – Want to try some cheese, but don’t need a whole 8 ounces? We’ll have a few cheese sticks along each week, in a variety of cheese types, for $2 each.
And we will have our certified organic non-GMO corn along in two different options:

Meadow View Goat Dairy of Fremont
Chevreʹ  Fresh chevre with a nice spreading consistency, perfect for sandwich toppings and cooking. Cherry Capital Foods of Traverse City says  ” The chèvre produced by Meadow View has a pitch perfect acidity on the palate that becomes gently sweet and milky with a grassy note on the finish.”
Seasoned Chevreʹ                                                    
Our fresh Chevre available in your favorite flavorings: Blueberry Vanilla (great on a morning bagel!) Hickory-smoked bacon Bits, Garlic, Italian Herb, & Hot Pepper
Feta                                                                                       
A smooth and creamy feta which is low in salt and rich in fresh goat milk flavor. The brining process gives feta cheese a salty, tangy flavor and a crumbly consistency. Feta cheese can be served as a table cheese, used in baking savory dishes, or served as an appetizer or in salads. The classic Greek salad is made with Feta cheese. In crumbles or cubes for easy slicing.
Tomme de Fremont                                     
Our first aged cheese is quickly becoming a customer favorite! Developed from a French recipe, Tomme is a lower fat mold ripened cheese, aged at least 60 days. This gives the cheese a stronger flavor & firmer texture than the fresh Chevres, perfect for slicing.
Dutch Kase                                                               
A Meadow View Dairy original! If you are looking for a nicely aged but milder version of our Tomme, this is the cheese for you. Vacuum sealed without mold and aged at least 60 days.
Marco Similar to Dutch Kase but pasteurized and vacuum sealed, it comes in Pepper, Sage, Italian & Garlic.
Other items from our farm:
We’ll also have eggs from our free-range, GMO-free flock.
Note: We will be attending market the last Saturday of every month.
We will be at market ONLY the last Saturday of the month. Thank you!

Strawberry news:
Scholl Farm of Montague has chemical-free U-Pick strawberries. Call for hours:  231-893-1311.

Unfortunately, Ware Farm berries are not producing enough this year to warrant a trip to Muskegon. Last week our asparagus farmer Greg Mund traveled to Berrien Springs and brought back some great certified organic strawberries for us; the trip was 2 hours one way! We thank him for making the trip and hope you all enjoyed your berries!  And I guess we will hope for a better year for the berries next year.
