Beef and eggs Dec 29

Greetings friends of Abbe Hills Farm,

There is no farmers market this upcoming weekend, but if enough of you are interested, we will have beef available at the farm on Saturday, December 29, 11:00 until noon.  But you have to pre-order the beef with Dan.  Eggs, of course, are almost always here.  And I can scare up some nice cabbages from the cooler.  And if Charlotte is back from her parent's early enough, we might have bread.

Dan has several 20 lb mixed beef boxes available for $110, and lots of hamburger at $5 per pound that he will bring down if he has enough orders to make the trip worthwhile.   Excellent grassfed beef at a very good price.  He needs you to preorder the boxes, and if you want more than five pounds of hamburger.  He'll have extra one pound packages of hamburger with him.  If you want to know more about the beef, or to order some for pickup on Saturday, or to confirm that he will be here, please contact Dan.  His phone number is 563-516-1007.  His email is danspech@neitel.net.

Our next farmers market is Saturday, Jan 5, in Mt. Vernon, 11:00 until 1:00.

Hope you are having great holiday,
Laura

Thanksgiving food this week

Greetings shareholders and friends of Abbe Hills Farm,
 
Market this Saturday is in Mt. Vernon, 11:00 until 1:00, in the Community Center at the east end of downtown.  I'll be bringing Thanksgiving food:  eggs, small red potatoes for roasting or mashing, winter squash, lots of gorgeous brussels sprouts, garlic, carrots, turnips, beets, napa (Chinese) cabbage, regular cabbage, and kale.  I'll also have vegetable roasting kits and and a new thing - stew kits - with everything you need to make leftover turkey stew in one bag.  If we have time, we'll also pick some spinach on Friday afternoon, but there won't be much.  (I realize I have just now set up the conditions for a food riot at the door of the gym at 11:00, but I don't know any other way to tell it.)  Charlotte will be with me with lots of bread.
 
For those of you who ordered turkeys and plan to pick them up here at the farm, we will be open from 5:00 until 6:15 Tuesday evening.  I'll also have more vegetables and eggs available for anybody who wants to stop by for last minute shopping.   And Charlotte will have bread here for people who have pre-ordered.  It will be dark, so bring a flashlight and park close to the shed so it's easier to get in and out.  (Parking rules were suspended back in October - yeah!  I no longer have to play bad cop.)
 
I can use egg cartons any time you want to drop them off, or bring them to market on Saturday. 
 
We had a somewhat disappointing market in MV two weeks ago, and we think we know why.  New Bo.  It seems like some of you might have been seduced by the big promises and bright lights of the city.  Well, you've had your fling; time to come back home.  We've got everything you need for Thanksgiving at the Mt. Vernon market - bread, veggies, eggs, bakery, mushrooms, meat, jelly, donuts, honey, wine, candy, nuts, pasta, and probably more things that I'm forgetting.  Plus all the crafts and gifts.  And everything at our market was really created by the person standing there.  And parking is easier.  And you don't have to fight a crowd.  And all your friends will be there.  And there are snacks.  What more do you need?  COME BACK!!!  PLEASE!!!
 
We'll take a week off for the holiday, so the next market will be Saturday, Dec 1, in Mt Vernon again.  I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  See you Saturday.
 
Laura
