New Farm Family Joins Sweetwater!
At this week’s market:
Chickadee Creek Farm of Nunica
Chris and Amy VanDenToorn are turning their recently purchased 20 acre farm in Nunica into their dream operation: a chemical free, compost-based produce operation complemented by a pasture raised livestock production. Currently they have a small CSA program (7 shares), pastured hogs, a flock of free range laying hens, ducks, geese, turkeys, rabbits, and goats. They will bring extra produce and their own farm grown fruit made into delicious jams and jellies. Chris interned at the Trillium Haven Farm in Jenison, and while they both still have off-farm jobs they look forward to growing with Sweetwater and making the farm their full time pursuit.
This week they will cucumbers, beans, squash, and hot peppers. Plus blueberry, strawberry and raspberry jams!

BEEF ~ SALE! Beef Liver $2.00 per lb. Stock up! This will be the last week of the sale. Please note: Steaks are in short supply. Consider other cuts of beef now that the weather is a bit cooler. Crock pot a roast or short ribs!
Try our beef. Our steers are on lush rotational pastures from May to November. They get all our quality hay they can eat, plus a little home-grown and ground- on-the-farm grain mostly in winter. Feeding cows small amounts of good grains are like humans eating small portions of dessert. It’s ok for them as long as grass and legumes are their main diet. The steers are hung to age and processed by Ebel’s Meats in Falmouth, a family-run USDA operation. Email us pre-orders by Friday 7pm.
Quarters of BEEF for sale. This is the most economical way to purchase beef. Talk to me or email for more information. email@example.com

This is your chance to purchase whitefish in bulk at a reduced price to fill your freezer with while we are gone (this year we are roughly planning on being gone 25 weeks). We are starting the Winter Whitefish Sale early this year in order to fill everyone’s order before the season ends. Order forms and half payment will be accepted starting now, and orders will begin being filled the first week of September.

Laughing Tree Brick Oven Bakery of Hart
Our breads are all made from 100% organic flours and grains. Nearly all of our breads are naturally-leavened using a levain that we cultivate on site in our bakery. All of our doughs undergo a long, slow fermentation process that produces extraordinarily flavorful and easily digestible breads. The grand finale: our breads are baked in a handbuilt ,wood-fired brick oven which creates loaves of amazing texture and beauty!
Come early if you are able! We often sell out before noon…
