Monday Market Preorder Newsletter-This week Woven Farmstead is asking for preorders by 7am Friday as her husband Jay will be taking over for Viki, who is attending a photo show. She will still have some items available for walk up sales Saturday but if you really want the good stuff, order now!
-Blackbird Farms is also asking for preorders for their pre-packed $15 bags of fresh farm veggies…and the good stuff is starting to roll in on their farm as well! Not that it’s not all good stuff, but when the cukes, squash, garlic & peppers start coming – yay!
-Please be sure to get your bread orders in to Laughing Tree by 6pm Tuesday! They always have a good selection of extra breads & pastries for non-preorders but if you take a look at their list of things available for preorder you will find a lot more!
-Chicken, Beef, Pork & Lamb: Scholl Farm, Pine Row Farm & The Pasturage would all encourage you to preorder for the best selections!
-Dark Water Coffee needs preorders by Wednesday for roasting preference. They had cups of their newest grind CRUZ last Saturday and it was delicious!

See you Saturday at the Market!

Vendors Attending Saturday July 30th:

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 $20. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15.
This week’s bag will likely contain a combination of some of the following: kale, head lettuce, green beans, cucumbers, summer squash, zucchini, scallions, parsley, basil, and fresh garlic. Again, each bag will cost $15.
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 many 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 LLC of Montague
We are so thrilled to have the sheep on grass! We move the flock four times per day to ensure the health of the pasture and the flock (it’s not hard because we have a pretty good system).  In time, as summer progresses and as our pasture improves, we hope to reduce moving them to one or two times per day.  We remain committed to 100% grass-fed because we believe it is the best thing for the lamb, the pasture and You!
We will be at Sweetwater this weekend, June 4, so feel free to pre-order from the linked list.  All of those items will also be available for walk up purchase. A reminder that if you’d like more than one of something, pre-ordering guarantees you’ll get what you want!

The Woven Farmstead

Bring Water to the Woven Farm!
To: The Sweetwater Community and People Who Want to See Small Local Organic Farms Survive
Many of you have already met Samantha Otto & know of her Woven Farmstead.  This extraordinary young farmer joined our market a few seasons ago, coaxing an amazing amount of vegetables from a very small piece of leased land near Wesley School in Muskegon.

Over a year ago Sam & her husband purchased a piece of property in Fruitland Township. They worked diligently to clear that land, & had installed a greenhouse in the middle of winter & shortly after that put in a well and were on their way to realizing the dream of a new farm when through a visit from strangers one day learned they had been sold the wrong parcel of land!

After consulting with the real estate agent who sold them the property she secured the correct parcel and without skipping a beat deconstructed the hoophouse & well and moved it to the new parcel further north.

To try to explain Sam’s “get it done” spirit, you only need to read what she wrote after moving to the new parcel:  “It’s wild how vastly different this space is, compared to what we thought we had purchased. In many ways, the differences are flustering. So many set backs and losses and extra work going into the differences; yet this land continues to shine with its beauty and offerings. I am grateful for this space, and so excited to share it with you this season.”
The new property had to be cleared, it needed a road and the weather did not cooperate. None of which stopped Sam.
Until now.
Again from Sam: “Once the land was ready, we reinstalled the well earlier this month only to discover it was dry. We then reinstalled it again, and again, and AGAIN! We are currently on our 5th install and our 3rd set of parts. between hitting clay, stripping threads, and wasting a whole lot of time, we are shifting our focus to other alternatives, and will hopefully have water soon!”
As of this writing Sam is bringing in water and doing as much handwatering as she can manage. Several neighboring farms, Tortoise & Hare & Lundell Farm have offered to help give her water in large containers, but CLEARLY this will not work for the field crops and the future of her farm’s success.

The growing season is here, and the professional drillers Sam has conferred with have told her that she may have to put in a residential well, which means she has to go very deep, maybe 200 ft deep, and that brings us to our urgent request:  The Woven Farm needs funds, immediately, in order to get water.
You can read about Sam’s saga on her Instagram page here https://www.instagram.com/the.woven.trifecta/

All farmers know that they will contend with the vagaries of the weather, and accept that without question as part of the cost of farming. But this is different; this is a show stopping emergency. The growing season is here, and The Woven Farmstead needs our help, and the sooner, the better.

The GoFundME page we have created for Sam is here:
https://www.gofundme.com/f/bring-water-to-woven-farm?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1

We are setting a modest goal of $5000 in hopes that we can quickly raise the needed funds and fingers crossed, surpass that goal to help Sam get water to her farm.

Please consider making a donation. If you prefer to send it directly to Sam, here is her address:

The Pasturage LLC of Montague
Julie Engel owns and operates The Pasturage, LLC. Our pigs and sheep range on 40 acres in Montague, MI.  The pigs eat certified organic grain (75% corn, 25% soy), are born on the farm, primarily roam in the woods, and get hay and baleage in the winter.  The sheep are 100% grass-fed, are moved daily to a new paddock in the summer, and are also born on the farm.
Highlight of the week: Lamb chops!  There are two different cuts of lamb chops, rib chops and loin chops.  As far as cooking goes, they are nearly identical.  The only difference you’ll notice is that the loin chop is slightly larger so you’ll cook it a touch longer.  They are both perfectly portioned protein that defrost fast, cook quickly, taste delicious, and lend themselves to pretty much any cooking style.

Blackbird Farms of Coopersville
This week at market, we are offering again 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 $20. We also include a brief note from Farmer Greg and a farm-tested recipe. Each bag costs $15.
This week’s bag will likely contain some combination of the following: head lettuce, arugula, Brussels sprouts, Napa cabbage, leeks, pie pumpkin, garlic, and microgreens. Again, each bag will cost $15. (Please note that due to the variability of the weather this time of year, the contents of the bag might be a little more in flux than in other seasons. I will try to hew as close to this list as I can, but substitutions may occur.)
This week we also will have a variety of vegetables available for pre-order:
kale (red curly, green curly, and lacinato): 1 pound for $4
collard greens: 1 pound for $4
arugula: 1/4 pound bag for $3
baby kale: 1/4 pound bag for $3
full-size cabbages (conical, savoyed, and Napa): $4 each
Brussels sprouts: $4 per stalk
leeks: 1 pound for $3
Anna Barbara’s Ohio Red garlic: $15 per pound (1/2 pound minimum order) ***Very limited quantities.*** This garlic is suitable for use as seed garlic.
Music garlic: Ideally, we will have more available next week.
And new this week:
–FRESH GINGER: $20 per pound (1/4 pound minimum). Please note that ginger rhizomes are irregularly sized and so may not weigh out to exactly what you ordered. We will try to get as close as we can.
To order, please e-mail us at hello.blackbirdfarms@gmail.com by noon on Friday. We will then send you an invoice via Square. Payment can also be made via cash or check (payable to Blackbird Farms).
Thanks so much! We are looking forward to seeing friends old and new this Saturday!
