Mund Farm of Rothbury

Greg returns this week with first harvest of  Certified Organic tart cherries! Best for pies, streusels & crisps, they are sought after by cooks who know they hold their shape better than sweet cherries (and who likes a gloppy cherry pie?) and are also easier to control sweetness to suit your own tastes. The season is short for these beauties, so grab some this 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 second batch!

The Roaring Mouse of Hart
New coffee and a new display! We were busy on our week off, and made some changes to our display. Also we have a new coffee from Guatemala, and a new coffee from Ethiopia.
We are still working on our teas. This week we will have the same black and green teas available. Hopefully soon we will be adding more.
Come by to learn how to brew better coffee using the French Press or a pour-over cone. We have both for sale, as well as filters for the cone.
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!
All coffee is $1.10/ounce or volume discount $12/12 oz bag $16/16 oz bag
In the roaster this week:
New! Guatemala FTO – A deliciously sweet, low acid replacement for our Peru. Milk chocolate and caramel notes, with a full body. Roasted to a medium level, this coffee is great with or without milk.
New! Ethiopia Amaro Gayo Org. – This coffee just came in, so no cupping notes yet. I can say though, that it will be a delicious, fruity, light roast! This coffee is grown, harvested, processed, and exported by Ethiopia’s only female miller/exporter Asnakech Thomas. She is dedicated to improving the quality of life of women and children in the area, and is working toward building a hospital. She is also dedicated to producing the highest quality organic coffee.
Papua New Guinea FTO – Low acid, with notes of caramel and nuts. A good, strong medium-dark roast.
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.
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!
