Westminster Farmers' Market Report for 01-15-10

Westminster Farmers’ Market Report from Maple Heights Farm

Five Months on One Tank of Oil?  We Can Hope…


Come see Food, Inc. with me…

…and you will be able to choose another reason or two (out of three or four) to shop at our Westminster Farmers’ Market and Mass Local Food!  This Friday, January 15th, there will be a showing of Food, Inc. at the office of Dr. Linda Smith and Associates.  I saw this movie over the Christmas break and it is really well done and definitely worth seeing (and if you’ve seen it, you know it is worth seeing again).  To be able to view this in a group setting is fantastic because it is a movie that evokes discussion!  I have heard it said that you shouldn’t plan to go out to eat after seeing this movie, and I didn’t get that feeling, but I think I have read EVERY book written by EVERY author that was interviewed for this movie, so it held no surprises for me.  Still, there was an interesting sub-story or two within the movie that really got me thinking… 


This movie is free.  I plan to attend and I’m already thinking of what I might donate to the (optional) refreshments table…  The movie will be at 2 Narrows Road in Westminster, Suite 101A.  I hope to see you there! 


A trip to King Arthur Flour:

Over the Christmas Holidays, Gwen Farley, Carol McGee and I took the day off from family life and headed up to Vermont to King Arthur flour.  We signed up for a class on baking using whole grains.  It was a great experience.  The class was about four hours in length and we picked up loads of tips to improve our baking.  Between the three of us we have a lot of experience, baking about 15 or 20 loaves of bread each week (co


mbined), yet as soon as the class started we were all learning new tips and tricks! During the class, we made the following:

Spice Cake  The recipe we used was modified as follows:
