The last week of January! No doubt you’ve noticed the longer days amidst all the snow. Speaking of all the snow, we got this email from a customer after last weekend’s one hour frolic in the blustery weather: I just want to say— I feel we are so blessed to have the Sweetwater Market and the very special vendors who are there to cheerfully greet us on Sat, no matter the weather. They, including you, are very special! Hugs to all of you!
I can speak for all of us when I say – hugs right back! We couldn’t do this without all of you as well!

Please know your preorders are key right now, and note the deadlines: J&J Tortillas needs your preorders by January 31st for a Feb 5 delivery; Laughing Tree Breads needs your preorders every Tuesday 6pm for Saturday market. Thanks!

The Pasturage LLC of Montague
This weekend! We will have bacon, pork steak, pork shoulder roast, pork butt roast, andouille, jalapeno brat, pork tongue and more pork chops. If you are interested in a half or whole pig, we are taking orders for a March 8 slaughter date.
There’s changes afoot in the pig realm at The Pasturage. To take place beginning in July, plans are to switch to a different heritage breed, change their ration profile to exclude soy while remaining certified organic, and use the pigs to renovate 2 acres of crappy grass then moving them into the woods for the heat of summer. We are trying several different breeds to find a good fit before we invest in breeding stock. Experiment! All that is to say: feedback welcome! We are doing this for you and we want you to tell us what you like! (Or don’t like)

Making stock with pork feet is not something you should put your foot in your mouth about.  Shout it to the rooftops!  It’s high in collagen, which according to https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/bone-broth yields “several important amino acids.” If you woke up this morning and thought, why do I ache… “connective tissue gives you glucosamine and chondroitin, natural compounds found in cartilage that are known to support joint health.” Feet, my friends, happen to be a whole bunch of moving parts (including the bones!) connected by tissue just to make you feel better. Or, you know, to allow my pigs to roam the pasture. Dual benefit!

GOOD NEWS!
Guess what!  We picked up the sausage and other delectables!  We now have chorizo, breakfast links, Italian, kielbasa and ground pork.  Also, warm your soul, nourish your body, and build your immunity with bone broth.  We have an exceptional assortment of cuts that complement one another nicely for whole body protection.  These include pork shanks, pork hocks, pork feet, pork neck bones, pork ears, pork snout, lamb shanks, lamb osso bucco, and lamb soup bones.  Each cut contributes different attributes, and the most nutritious bone broth is made of a combination.  Ears and feet, for example, are rich in collagen while the neck bones have quite a bit of marrow and and meat leading to a vitamin rich brew.  Check out https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/bone-broth for more information.  And rest assured, no one will know you put feet in your stock pot, and then they won’t care when they feel so good because of them!

The Pasturage LLC of Montague
Bone-in lamb shoulder is perfect for curry. Beat the cold, both the weather and your health, with an infusion of spice and stock. The bone in the shoulder creates a rich sauce with the benefits of certified grass-fed bone broth. This is how I make it: defrost the shoulder. Then braise the meat in a pot just big enough to hold it and just covered with water. Put in the spices that are whole at this time like cinnamon sticks, peppercorns, cloves, cumin seeds, coriander, dried hot peppers or whatever your curry recipe calls for. Braise 2 hrs, but not more. Strain. Put the stock back in the pot, flavor with additional spices like turmeric, ginger, onion, garlic, etc and let reduce to desired consistency. Let meat cool, take off bone. Add to reduced sauce. Serve with basmati rice and yogurt.  Or throw it all in your instant pot and set to pressure cook for 30 minutes. The smell alone clears your sinuses!

The Pasturage LLC of Montague
Bone-in lamb shoulder is perfect for curry. Beat the cold, both the weather and your health, with an infusion of spice and stock. The bone in the shoulder creates a rich sauce with the benefits of certified grass-fed bone broth. This is how I make it: defrost the shoulder. Then braise the meat in a pot just big enough to hold it and just covered with water. Put in the spices that are whole at this time like cinnamon sticks, peppercorns, cloves, cumin seeds, coriander, dried hot peppers or whatever your curry recipe calls for. Braise 2 hrs, but not more. Strain. Put the stock back in the pot, flavor with additional spices like turmeric, ginger, onion, garlic, etc and let reduce to desired consistency. Let meat cool, take off bone. Add to reduced sauce. Serve with basmati rice and yogurt.  Or throw it all in your instant pot and set to pressure cook for 30 minutes. The smell alone clears your sinuses!

6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
Friday Update News!

You are encouraged to try for a preorder while there’s still some time today. It’s a big help for our vendors with knowing what to bring to market. Especially with the cold weather more care has to be taken with limited space in our vehicles for storage.

For the most part in contrast to last year, we’re all appreciating the contact & conversation we have with everyone, but do know that if you prefer to stay in your car, both for warmth & with the covid numbers heading in the wrong direction just now, please let your vendors know when you place your preorders and you can drive up behind their vehicles and pick up your orders.

Just a reminder: We will be closed on both Dec 25th & Jan 1 as both holidays fall on Saturday this year. That leaves us just this Saturday and next until the holidays – keep that in mind!

For those new to Sweetwater, this newsletter is a list of all vendors who will be attending the market on this date. Their products & prices and contact info are listed so that you can place a preorder with them. It also gives you a chance to start making your shopping list early in the week. On Friday we put out an updated version with items added to the list that will be available for walk up purchasing.

To remind everyone about what is unique about Sweetwater, here is a link to the Sweetwater Pledge to Our Customers.

The Pasturage LLC of Montague
Pork prices will be going up soon, sadly.  I hate to do that to you all, but feed prices have gone up 28.5% this year, and processing fees have gone up twice as well.  After subtracting those two expense categories, to date I have made (roughly) $880!  That doesn’t pay the mortgage or capital loan or insurance or fuel or… you get the picture.  Personally, I am committed to certified organic feed, so if I can’t make it work in some fashion with certified feed, I think I’ll get out of pigs.  I have 58 feeders left, so I’ll have pork for another year, so don’t immediately fret.  I will have chorizo, anduoille, kielbasa, and other sausages coming at the end of January.  They will likely be priced at $13/lb… um… Merry Christmas?!
