Maple Moon Farm of Shelby
Please join us is honoring Maple Moon Farm’s December customer of the month, Mark Knudsen. Mark loves our carrots, and may just eat more carrots from our farm than we do! We are grateful that Mark makes a point of coming to the farmer’s market weekly (we know that takes a lot). We especially love that he regularly buys produce for his mother. Mark is a incredible part of our farm and we are honored to grow food for him and his family. Thank you, Mark!
This week we will be bringing:
SPINACH (we managed to find a window of time just warm enough to pick in the hoops. We are so excited to offer foods to our community that are normally out of season)
MARK’S FAVORITE CARROTS
DELICATA SQUASH (our supply is dwindling, so get these tasty gems while they’re here. Did you know that you can eat the skin on these, no need to peel. And these are by far, the sweetest squash we grow)
LONG PIE (heirloom variety that has smooth, creamy flesh)
JAM&JELLY (made with local organic fruit and honey)
DRIED PEPPERS AND SMOKED PEPPERS
*NEW THIS WEEK* HERBAL TEAS AND LOOSE LEAF HERBS
We have a small selection of loose leaf herbs that can be use for tea and other preparations. Many commercial medicinal herbs can be mislabelled, or more commonly, many years old. The best way to buy herbs is directly from the grower. We are happy to offer dandelion leaf, echinacea leaf and flower, chickweed, calendula, oat tops and straw, and chamomile.
HERBAL LIP BALM
We are proud to be Stellar organic.
