Thanks Russ

Scholl Farm of Montague
Rhubarb is ready! – think rhubarb-ade, rhubarb syrup, vitamin C, A and K (45% daily value per serving), manganese (32% daily value per serving), fiber, and more.
Eggs from free-range chickens, who scratch in the pasture and eat certified organic feed mix and certified organic roasted corn. Also free-range ducks and geese who get the same supplemental feed.
Catnip plants in one gallon pots. Think happy cats and happy people (tea can have calming effects, helps with insomnia, and aid digestion). Also good garden companion plant to repel pest insects.
Anyone wanting chicken feet please call and we will bring them to market.
See you there.

*We accept credit & debit cards!
We’ll have our 5 kraut flavors for sale and sampling: All-organic ingredients, naturally fermented, and probiotic. Never cooked, raw and vegan, with no vinegar or starter culture, our Kraut is good on its own, or added to many other dishes, providing great flavor and nutrients.
· Carry Me Away – Traditional caraway kraut, as you find on a Reuben sandwich. This kraut is closest to what many grandmothers made in large crocks in their basement.
· Dillyicious – Our best-seller. Tastes like a pickle. Onion, garlic, dill, and turmeric. Our “gateway kraut” for those who say “I don’t like sauerkraut”.
· Purple Hot & Spicy – Onion, garlic and Cayenne. Hot for some, not so hot for others.
· Curryosity – We love India and Indian food. This kraut is a highly versatile addition to many dishes, or by itself.
· Root for Ginger – Our nod to Kim-chee, with similar ingredients — Carrot, radish, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Just a little heat.
