The Pasturage of Montague
Top o’ the week to ya.  We will be at Sweetwater on 10/29 with apples.  This may be our last weekend with the phenomenal red strained honeycrisp, but as with all things related to the future, it’s hard to say for sure.  What I CAN say is that our meat list is updated and attached.  We still have plenty of your favorites, including bacon and brats.  My inventory says we are down to our last 40# of andouille, though, at which point it will not be back in stock as the slaughterhouse has discontinued making it.  Enjoy this last blast of warm weather before winter!
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. Look over our list here:
