Greener Acres Farm:  Another Cold January Day

Nothing much new to report this week. Most of the same items as last week.

Please note that the very popular cheese “Cranberry Christmas” from Clover Creek Cheese Cellar has been renamed “Winter Berry”. Same cheese, just different name.

Also, we got lucky with warm temperatures last Friday, but the forecast for this coming Friday is calling for 20-30’s. If you will be ordering any plants, please make sure you will be home to receive them or let us know when you will be home that we can deliver them, in order to prevent any damage to these plants.

ALFN Local Food Club:  Market Is Open!

Happy Sunday!

The market is open and ready for your orders. It’s been a while since we have had duck eggs available, and we are happy to say that they are back on the market! Look for them under “what’s new” or the “eggs” category. Eggs are one of our most popular items, and they sell out quick. We recommend getting your egg order in as soon as possible!

We are only $175 away from meeting our fundraising matching goal! We cannot thank you all enough for your support. We are excited about the future possibilities for ALFN and the online market, and are excited to continue serving you. Click here to contribute to our GoFundMe campaign and make plans to attend our fundraising party this Thursday from 4:30-7pm at the Lost 40 Brewery.

Up on our blog today are links to delicious smoothie recipes that are the perfect way to use the abundance of frozen fruits and veggies from last season!

Follow us on Facebook for more offers and events, or visit our website to learn more about our organization.

The market is open for this week’s orders!

WELCOME Sanders Bros. Coffee— A local, small-batch roasting company, Sanders Bros. Coffee selects specialty coffee beans (those rated 85 or higher in cuppings) and roasts them fresh just a day or two before coming to market!
Some of the available coffees are certified organic, while others are not simply because the path to certification is too expensive for the farmer. That said, manures and recycled coffee products at the farm level are cheaper than chemical fertilizers, so they are most often used instead.

Check it out and try a bag this week!

Alfresco Pasta has a special this week! ALL raviolis are $1 off! Great items to have on hand for quick, delicious, warm meals!

Farrar Farm is clearing out last year’s inventory and has significantly reduced prices of following items: Bone-in Rump Roast, Flank Steak, Sirloin Steak, Flat Iron Steak, Skirt Steak, Tri Tip. These prices won’t last long so stock up now!!!

Nature’s Wealth offer their Non-GMO, farm-grown popcorn either by the kernel for you to pop or by the popped (and some flavored) bag! Two sizes available! Perfect on-the-go snack that keeps for several days in the Ziploc bag!

See ya on the porch!!

Manchester Locally Grown:  Time to Order Fresh Local Farm Products!

Manchester Locally Grown market

We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.
