Vendors Attending Saturday December 10th:

Blackbird Farm of Coopersville
This week at market, we are again offering our pre-selected, pre-packed bags of fresh vegetables. These bags are something akin to our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares. We assemble bags of our highest quality veggies based on whatever is fresh and in season for that week. In the bag, we aim to have some combination and quantity of at least six different vegetables with a combined value around $25. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $20.
This week’s bag will likely contain a combination of some of the following: head lettuce, carrots, potatoes, turnips, winter squash, leeks, and garlic. Again, each bag will cost $20.
To order your Blackbird Farms Veggie Bag, please email us at hello.blackbirdfarms@gmail.com by noon on Thursday. We will then send you an invoice via Square. Payment can also be made via cash or check (payable to Blackbird Farms).
We also plan to have several items for walk-up sales—watch for more information in Friday’s newsletter.
Thanks so much! We’re looking forward to seeing friends old and new this Saturday!

The Pasturage of Montague
Hi all! I missed market last weekend due to a head cold so I apologize if you were looking and didn’t find me. I am on the mend and will be at Sweetwater this weekend with apples and meat. We have new lamb cuts available: neck roast, bone-in shoulder roast, boneless loin and tenderloin, and bulk sausage for your stuffing in both hot and sweet Italian; plus mild breakfast links are back!  All of our lamb sausages are made with our 100% Certified Grassfed lamb, which means you get tremendous flavor with good fat! Numerous blind taste tests have confirmed that people do not know which of our sausages are lamb and which are pork. Try it for yourself!
For both apples & meats feel free to pre-order; walk-ups welcome. Bring your own containers, please.
Prices for apples are as follows:
Under 24# is $3.25/#
Over 24# is $3.00/#
Keep in mind 24# is about a half bushel, which nearly fills a paper grocery bag.
As for our pastured meats, it’s not too early to begin considering holiday roasts. Product price list here:

That means Jim and I are getting busy in our workshops so I may have some new items this weekend and more to come. Custom orders are gladly accepted.

Please text me at 734-945-0720 for preorders.

We will have the following available for this week.
Ancho Peppers – $8 per bag.  In Mexican Spanish, there are three peppers that change names when changing state.  The poblano pepper is one of the three.  Dried poblanos are ‘ancho’, which is Spanish for ‘wide’.  It is sweet and earthy with a touch of heat.
Napa/Chinese Cabbage – $3 per bag.   (2 heads per bag – 1 lb per bag more or less)    Limited amount.  Last for the season.
Crushed Hot Pepper   A blend of our Certified Naturally Grown hot peppers.   Add a little zest to your chili, soups or fresh salads.  $7 Net Wt 2 oz jar
Black Storage Radishes $3 per quart  These radishes are a great one for storage and can be stored up to a month or longer.   These radishes are larger than the radishes that most people are used to.  They are snow white in the center and have a peppery taste that is mellowed when cooked.  They are great with a nice full body beer, in a veggie platter or salad.  Try radishes cooked in the same way you would cook potatoes…they are great roasted, fried, or mashed.
Honeynut Squash $1 each  This variety of butternut squash is sweeter and smaller running 1/2 to 1 1/2 lbs each.
Tuffy acorn squash $1 each   This variety of acorn squash is smaller running 1/2 to 1 1/2 lbs each.

Young Guinea Fowl  $8 per lb 2.5 – 3 lbs   Guinea Fowl is all dark meat, very tender, and very similar to pheasant without a gamey taste.  Try guinea fowl roasted with a red currant gravy or batter fried like chicken.
Johansen’s Maple Syrup  $10 pint
We are currently out of our Rabbit but will have more back in stock in November.  We normally offer our poultry and rabbit frozen.  If you are interested in buying it fresh (not frozen), let us know and we can arrange pick-up the day we get it from the processor.

Monday Preorder Newsletter

Just a brief note to say THANK YOU to all of our Sweetwater friends who take the time to place preorders week after week. You may have no idea how much you are appreciated, but you are very much appreciated! We know it can be a pain to go through this looonnngg newsletter, find what you want and contact each vendor separately, but to the vendors it very often makes their (expensive) gas fueled trips to market well worth the time & effort they go through.
Thanks again, and see you at the Market!
