Attending this week’s market: 

Shady Side Farm of Holland
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.
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.
Pinto – Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking.
Tiger Eye – Rich, hearty flavor, with a smooth texture and tender skins.
Zebra – Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean.
We are very low in stock with some of these beans, and (as you can see) are completely sold out of many others. The good news is that bean harvest is just around the corner. We already know that some of the beans will not be producing well, as we had a very dry spell right after planting, and many of the seeds never germinated, or germinated much too late. But we are hopeful to have more beans available for you soon!
We plan to have corn meal and grits available for you Saturday, as well as a selection of our thick wool hiker socks—perfect for those cool fall nights that are in store for us soon.
Ask me about getting a whole lamb for your freezer this fall! These lambs are grazed on fresh pasture each day all spring/summer/fall and fed hay only (plus minerals) during the few winter months that we house them in the barn.

As an incentive for the early joiners, we will increase your premium by $20, so your $300 CSA will net you $350 in produce for the summer. Special offer good until Feb. 20. We offer a mid-week delivery if you have busy Saturdays during the summer. Small extra charge, but may be worth it for the convenience.

Wild Earth Chocolates of Muskegon
We have a few new flavors we will be playing with through the new year using essential oils infused into thin textured creamy maple sugar sweetened chocolate. Be sure and come by and sample some.
Orange with a hint of clove has a deep orange note with a nice warm kick of clove and a soft lingering chocolate finish. Anise offers a sweet licorice pop with subtle hints of fennel and tarragon, swirling in velvety chocolate throughout. Peppermint, strong, cool, hot and always a favorite with deep dark chocolate, especially at this time of year.
I have also added peppermint flavored Heart Chocolate, so now we have plain or peppermint in the new sweeter 75% dark chocolate sweetened with D-ribose, for a big boost of calm energy right to your cells. D-ribose is a sweet supplement that is used for heart, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia patients to help them regain their cellular energy, so they can begin to move again. We will be offering:

Wild Earth Chocolates of Muskegon
I have a few new flavors I will be playing with through the Christmas season, using essential oils infused into thin textured creamy maple sugar sweetened chocolate. Be sure and come by and try some and help me decide which ones to keep.
Orange with a hint of clove has a deep orange note with a nice warm kick of clove and a soft lingering chocolate finish.
Anise offers a sweet licorice pop with subtle hints of fennel and tarragon, swirling in velvety chocolate throughout.
Peppermint, strong, cool, hot and always a favorite with deep dark chocolate, especially at this time of year.
I have also added peppermint flavored Heart Chocolate, so now we have plain or peppermint in the new sweeter 75% dark chocolate sweetened with D-ribose, for a big boost of calm energy right to your cells. D-ribose is a sweet supplement that is used for heart, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia patients to help them regain their cellular energy, so they can begin to move again.

Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart
Well, it’s almost time for PANETTONE!  The beautiful Italian Christmas bread that we make for the late December holidays.  According to legend, this unusual and elegant loaf was the work of a country baker (named Antonio) who wanted to move his bakery to the big city and wanted to create a bread with which he could impress the urban palette.  He settled upon a rich, yet light, loaf made with candied fruits, nuts, and eggs.  But what made the bread most memorable was that he baked it in a flower pot—so it stood up straight and tall (unlike loaves baked directly on the hearth). Come out this weekend and have a free sample taste!  (We will not have loaves of PANETTONE for sale until Saturday December 19th).

New Vendor!
Blackbird Farms of Coopersville
We welcome Greg Dunn of Blackbird Farms! Greg honed his farming skills at Trillium Haven, serving there as farm manager for five years. 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.

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!”

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 – Slightly sweet bean, smooth, creamy texture, good in everything.
Pinto – (Almost gone) Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking.

New Vendor!
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!”

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 will have Grassfield Farms organic raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:
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. SALE this week on this flavor only–$7.
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.

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 three different options:
Whole corn (for making masa) – 2# bags. Our stock is getting low, and we won’t harvest until October. Stock up if you are a regular user of corn.
Freshly-ground corn meal – 2# bagsWe took our whole corn down to Windmill Island in Holland and had them grind corn meal for us. This stoneground meal is fresh, fresh, fresh!
Grits – 2# bags. This is more coarsely ground, and is suitable for grits or polenta. Also stoneground at Windmill Island in Holland and fresh, fresh, fresh!

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.

Shady Side Farm of Holland
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
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 will have Grassfield Farms organic raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:
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:
Whole corn (for making masa) – 2# bags. If you want corn in larger amounts than just 2#, please email me. We will have the little packets of lime necessary for making the masa, as well.
Freshly-ground corn meal – 2# bagsWe took our whole corn down to Windmill Island in Holland and had them grind corn meal for us. This stoneground meal is fresh, fresh, fresh–what I will have along to market Saturday is the third batch!

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.

100% Organic Hard Red Winter Wheat Flour

Our chickens are raised on grass and alfalfa pasture.  They get lots of sunshine and wind, leftover veggies, and non-gmo feed.

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.
Note: We will be attending market the last Saturday of every month.

The Roaring Mouse of Hart
Coffee and Tea! Check out our expanding line of organic coffees and teas! This week we have 5 new teas! Come check them out! Next week we will have a new coffee to try! Check out our expanding line of equipment! Brew better coffee at home!
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!
