Beans, Glorious Beans!

Aug 10, 2015

Beans, Glorious Beans!
Golden wax beans and royal burgandy beans. The royal burgandy beens turn green as soon as they're heated. We call them Harry Potter beans!
Broccoli and squash from Brightside Acres. Peppers from S & S Farm.
This week's forecast:
This week's basket will include beans of several colors, new potatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, tomatoes, mixed squash, sweet peppers, a variety of greens and a surprise or two! A note regarding last week: Beets were on the list for last week. And we had a splendid variety! Much to our speechless dismay, our walk-in cooler malfunctioned Wednesday night and froze the lot. Hoping for more beets asap! 
Want fresh veggies one week at a time?
For the remainder of August, we are offering our basket service on a single-week basis.  If you or someone you know has been hesitant to commit to a whole month, now is the chance to try our delicious, nutritious 10-lb basket of fresh-picked organic produce one week at a time. Online payment in advance of single-week delivery is required. Please sign-up by noon on the Wednesday prior to delivery. Monthly and seasonal memberships remain available September through November. Questions about signing-up? Contact us!

Eggs: Prices are on the rise!
According to an NBC News report August 4: "Squeezed by limited supply because of the worst avian flu outbreak in three decades, egg prices have already risen sharply...and could surge even higher." BB&T Markets analyst Brett Hundley says an uptick to $6/dozen "would not surprise him."
We've got 'em! Free range eggs & whole chickens
Farm fresh free range eggs from S & S Farm and Brightside Acres are available for purchase from the cooler at 503 Third Avenue in Marlinton. $3.50/dozen. We also have whole chickens (2-3lbs each) from S & S Farm. $4.25/lb.  If you've never treated yourself to a free range bird, now's the time! We're open 12-5pm every Thursday. Decide you want a dozen eggs or a chicken included in your basket? Drop us a line.
At long last, a bit of cauliflower is coming on! Just when I'd given up: Surprise!
