Hickory Ridge Family Farm

We’re excited to introduce a brand new product this week: Cornish Hens! Cornish Hens (also known as Poussin) are the same delicious chickens we normally offer, and are raised on the same healthy pasture lifestyle, but we have processed them at an earlier age. These young chickens weighing under 2lbs each are known for their tender meat and delicate flavor, and are the perfect size to be served individually to give an elegant feel to any dinner. They are excellent stuffed, roasted, or even grilled, and make for a truly mouth-watering and memorable meal. Quantities are limited so be sure to stop by.

We will also be offering limited quantities of our pastured pork chops, and will have pre-order forms available for our Freedom Ranger chickens (coming in mid-August). Freedom Rangers were developed in France from traditional, heritage-breed chickens to meet the highest standards of the French “Label Rouge Free Range Program.” Unlike the conventional cornish-cross chickens that we usually raise on pasture, Freedom Rangers need no encouragement to graze and will forage for 30% or more of their diet, resulting in a very happy, healthy, and tasty 4-6 lb chicken. We will have Freedom Ranger pre-order forms available at market and would love to talk to you about these delightful and delicious chickens.


Carriage House Gardens

Kim Coston will return this week with more of her artistic seasonal herbal-floral bouquets from the garden: hydrangea, yellow, red and orange lillies, sage,
and other assorted seasonal garden flowers.


Happy Goat Soaps

100% natural products-goat milk soaps!

Why choose goat milk soap?  Because goat milk is full of vitamins and minerals that absorb easily into your skin.  Happy Goat makes bath/shower bars, shampoo bars and foaming liquid hand soap with goat milk from their own goats.  They are also gentle enough to be used as a facial soap. People have been using goat milk soap for centuries to improve skin.  The ancient Egyptians considered a milk bath the ultimate in luxurious living and Cleopatra regularly bathed in pure milk.  And though goat milk soap isn’t a cure for skin ailments, many sufferers of skin maladies like acne and eczema have reported relief from their symptoms as a result of regular use.


Bee & Botanicals of Spring Lake
Soaps made with organic oil and botanicals, only essential oils for fragrance- Lavender, Lemongrass Tea,

Oats & Spice, Orange, Vanilla & Oats, and Rows & Furrows (great hand soap with a little extra grit)

Nail and facial Brushes with wood and natural bristles

By request, to keep your soap high and dry – Soap Dishes now available in both pine and cedar

100% Michigan beeswax candles; natural, bright, clean and long burning.
Fragrant and versatile Organic Lavender – Organza, embroidered, and hand colored organic Lavender Sachets.  Add natural

fragrance to drawers, closets, clothing in storage, travel bags, desk drawers… it smells sweet, clean & fresh but also known

to be a natural relaxant and also a moth deterrent.
