Market Stuff for February 23.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 11am. As of now, I won’t be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market next Saturday because I’ll be at the Matthews Community Farmers Market from 8-10. Come see me there!

This week I have 24 dozen organic fed, soy-free, free range eggs from Carlea Farm.

For veggies. lots of lettuce! Nice green romaine lettuce, mini red romaines and green buttercrisp;  a few bunches of collards & chard, black radishes, red radishes, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

filet, ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flank, skirt, flap steak, flat iron, short ribs, philly steak, cube steak, stew beef, osso bucco, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, hot dogs.

Ground beef special – Buy 5, Get 1 free. Briskets are 10% off tomorrow too!

Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.75/lb)

We are now also offering (almost) half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $460. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.

I get lots of questions about what to make with the wheat; how about something like this warm One Pot Farro with Mushrooms and Peas. This recipe calls for pearled wheat, but since our wheat hasn’t been processed in any way you would just rinse it, soak overnight and boil for around 30 minutes (or until slightly underdone) before adding it to the recipe.

I’m looking for someone to help me a few hours a week on the farm this year, and someone to go to the farmers market for us, every Saturday or every other Saturday, contact me at 704.293.1777 🙂

 

 

 

 

No market for me this week.

I’ll see you next time! Have a great weekend 🙂

 

Market Stuff for February 9.

Ginger and turmeric seed came from Hawaii this week. It’s too cold to plant it in the hoops now so I pre-sprout it in flats in the greenhouse and put it in the ground in May.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 11am.

I have lettuce, baby collards & chard, black radishes, leeks, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

filet, ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flank, skirt, flap steak, flat iron, short ribs, philly steak, cube steak, stew beef, osso bucco, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, hot dogs.

Market Stuff for February 2.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 11am.

I’ll have some lettuce, collards, chard, black radishes, baby leeks and green onions, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flank, flap steak, flat iron, short ribs, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones, hot dogs.

I thinned out these crowded baby collards so that’s what I’m bringing tomorrow.

I’ve got onions coming up in the greenhouse and yesterday I finished my first round of tomato flats, and parsley and cutting celery. I haven’t taken soil samples yet so I’ve got to get on it, and seed potatoes will be here this month!

I’ll be looking for someone to help me a few hours a week this year, and possibly someone to work at the Charlotte market and/or go to another market for us. If you know of anyone that might be interested let me know!

See you tomorrow!
