Provision Family Farm of White Cloud
Luke & Kaitlyn Eising have only been farming full time a short while but find that farm life suits them well and are loving it. They graze cattle and sheep, pasture pigs and poultry, and grow them as healthy and happy as possible. They have no GMO’s on their farm and no strange chemicals in their meats. The farm is near Woodville 10 miles past White Cloud. This multi-generational family works hard to make their little piece of earth beautiful as well as fertile, and they love and welcome visitors.
This week they will bring frozen and smoked pork cuts as well as cuts of beef & chicken from their pastured flocks. Stop by and welcome this newest addition to Sweetwater!

This week we will be at market with 1 and 2 pound bags of our certified organic beans in the following varieties:
Black Calypso (near the end of our supply) - Creamy plump texture, nutty, mellow russet potato like flavor
Black Turtle - Common black bean, great in Mexican dishes
Black Valentine - Tastes a little like kidney beans, great for salads, soups and dips
Hutterite Soup - Comfort food, cook fast, creamy soup, baby food
Jacob’s Cattle - Big and meaty, taste & texture of new potatoes, traditional baked beans, chili
Jacob’s Cattle Gold - Hold shape w/ long cooking, soak up other flavors well, soups and stews
Marrow - Creamy bean with a slight taste of bacon, good in soups and baked beans
Nuña (near the end of our supply) - Good for sautéing in pan with oil and spices (soak first!), taste like fried potatoes
October - Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili
Pinto - Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking
We are out of several of our varieties already. If you have a favorite bean, you might want to stock up on it.
In addition, we’ll have Grassfield Farms raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:
Chili - Gouda with Red Chili flakes, this mild and creamy cheese has delightful spice without being too hot.
Edam - A variety of Gouda made with skim milk: Elastic, yet firm, this flawless low fat cheese is our best melter, improving any dish.
Garlic & Onion - The most aromatic of herbs. Don’t be the only one in the room to eat this spiced Gouda or you soon will be.
Gouda - A traditional handmade cheese in keeping with West Michigan’s (and our family’s) Dutch culture.
Lamont Cheddar - A rare, natural rind English cheese, named for the Grand River’s first settlement near our farm.
Leyden - Originally from the Rhine Valley, now the Grand River Valley; cumin perfectly compliments this aged Dutch cheese
Spring Herb - A Polkton base (a softer cheese) with chives, parsley, garlic and tarragon. Very tasty!
