The Pasturage of Montague
Hi all, we will not be able to deliver to Sweetwater for the next two weeks. We will resume delivery on 2/24. In the meantime, we will be inside at our usual stall at the Muskegon market. It looks like our winter reprise may be on its way. Personally, I am looking forward to it because my first cross country ski attempt in January ended in a tangle of skis and poles and mud. Even though we had snow, the ground never froze and I skiied right into a gully I didn’t even know was there! Check us out at www.thepasturage.com/order for all the things fit to eat

The Pasturage of Montague
Hi all, we will not be able to deliver to Sweetwater for the next two weeks. We will resume delivery on 2/24. In the meantime, we will be inside at our usual stall at the Muskegon market. It looks like our winter reprise may be on its way. Personally, I am looking forward to it because my first cross country ski attempt in January ended in a tangle of skis and poles and mud. Even though we had snow, the ground never froze and I skiied right into a gully I didn’t even know was there! Check us out at www.thepasturage.com/order for all the things fit to eat
Check it out! Tootaloo!  Julie

The Pasturage of Montague
Our maples were dripping in the sun the other day. I asked one of the other vendors at Muskegon if their sap was running. They’re significantly further inland, and he said no, and that he hoped it wouldn’t run yet for awhile. I’m reading a book called Sweetgrass written by a Potawatomi botanist. I love the reverence their culture has for the maple. I didn’t know this until I started reading old first hand captivity narratives, but pretty much every Indian tribe abhorred salt. They seem to all love sugar. Sometimes I think to myself: Oh, how easy it would be to peddle sugar! But I don’t. I peddle meat. But like maple syrup, our meat is full of nutrients you won’t find in the super-abundant alternative stocked (seemingly forever) on the grocery store shelf.

Hello :-),
*Please note that due to my work schedule, I’ll be unable to provide totals at a reasonable hour for orders received after noon today. I will have them by Saturday morning. I apologize for the inconvenience.
While I’m no more partial to mud than Julie and her sheep, I will say I’ve appreciated my clothes not freezing solid, liquid water for livestock, and not thawing pipes and machinery by transferring heat from my bare hands this past week. Bees also require temps to warm up enough they can take cleansing flights, so I was grateful for their sakes as well. We’ll soon see what February holds!
I will bring the usual walk up items weekly since market will be every week. Preorders are still recommended for items you consider crucial. I sometimes run out of items, and it’s easier than guessing what everyone wants to eat all week!
We will accept orders until 5pm on Friday. I will try to get totals emailed out by 9:30pm on Friday. If you don’t get a response from me, please contact me. We accept cash or check payable to Pine Row Farm.

We sell by halves and quarters. Please let me know if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

The Pasturage of Montague
One week of winter (ok, 10 days) and we’re headed back to mud. I’m sad about that. So are the sheep. They hate the mud; they never leave the barn. In very cold weather, they sit out in the yard, chew their cud and let the snow pile on their back.  By the time the next market comes around, who knows? It may be winter again. You can order anytime online via www.thepasturage.com/order for pick up at the farm, the Muskegon market or Sweetwater market.

Also: Reminder that Laughing Tree Bakery will be at the Muskegon Farmers Market every Saturday through the winter!

Sweetwater Additional Vendors for Jan 27th & Schedule Change

Sweetwater Local Foods Market
Saturday, January 27, 2024
10:00am to 11:00am
Mercy Health Lakes Village
6401 Harvey St. at US31/Pontaluna Rd.
Contact info at end of newsletter
Additional vendors attending January 27th & change to winter schedule.

I apologize in advance for the changing schedule for this winter. It’s partly the weather but also that we are trying to figure out what works for both the farmers and for you all.
Liberty Family Farm, Earthscape Farm have decided to come this week in addition to Pine Row Farm. Also Dirty Roots Healing. And The Pasturage.
We are going to dispense with the every two week schedule. The farmers will let me know Sunday night if they are going to attend the next Saturday and then you will get the Monday preorder list as usual.
If something changes and they can’t make it they will let me know Thursday night for the Friday Update newsletter.
So, to recap: Back to an every week market. The difference will be that this will be a PREORDER ONLY market. Even then, if any particular vendor has something extra to bring for walk up sales they will list that as well.
Thanks for your patience as we try to work this out. Please email with any questions to sweetwaterlocalfoods@gmail.com
