Attending this Saturday’s market:
Maple Moon Farm of Shelby
Maple Moon is enjoying spring! The hoops are growing, the greenhouse is full to bursting, and we have bare ground outside (though very wet). We are excited to share our spring produce with you.
OCEANA BABY GREEN MIX-our own blend of baby greens grown in the heart of Oceana county. Baby kale, tat soi, mustards, and arugula. Great for eating fresh or cooked.
FRENCH BREAKFAST RADISHES
Crushed Red Pepper
Nourish, a great everyday tea that gently supports the whole body
Restore, supports adrenal health and overall well being
Patti’s Hard Working Hands-a hard working cream for hands that need a little TLC. We infused calendula, comfrey and violet leaf in organic oils, for a cream that heals even the roughest skin.
Zen Cream-organic apricot kernel oil infused with calming flowers from summer’s garden make the base for this relaxing cream. Soothes the skin and the soul. We love it as a cream to soothe our littlest ones, but the grown ups at our house love it too.
Our chickens are fully free range. They are currently doing weed control; they are foraging through the outside (and soon to be planted) gardens eating up weed seed.

Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart
Please take note that we are instituting several price changes in stores (beginning 4/25) and at markets (beginning 5/3). These increases are the result of ingredient price increases over the life of our operation. We have absorbed some of these increases and are trying hard to keep our prices fair while incorporating the highest quality, organic ingredients we can find. We appreciate your understanding on this issue and your continued patronage.

Meadow View Goat Dairy & Farm of Fremont
New! Marco is our latest creation and we think it will be a hit! Similar to Dutch Kase but pasteurized and vacuum sealed, it comes in Pepper, Sage, Italian & Garlic. Try a sample!
Chevreʹ Fresh chevre with a nice spreading consistency, perfect for sandwich toppings and cooking. Cherry Capital Foods of Traverse City says ” The chèvre produced by Meadow View has a pitch perfect acidity on the palate that becomes gently sweet and milky with a grassy note on the finish.”
Our fresh Chevre available in your favorite flavorings: Blueberry Vanilla (great on a morning bagel!) Hickory-smoked bacon Bits, Garlic, Italian Herb, & Hot Pepper
A smooth and creamy feta which is low in salt and rich in fresh goat milk flavor. The brining process gives feta cheese a salty, tangy flavor and a crumbly consistency. Feta cheese can be served as a table cheese, used in baking savory dishes, or served as an appetizer or in salads. The classic Greek salad is made with Feta cheese. In crumbles or cubes for easy slicing.
A Meadow View Dairy original! If you are looking for a nicely aged but milder version of our Tomme, this is the cheese for you. Vacuum sealed without mold and aged at least 60 days.
Tomme de Fremont
Our first aged cheese is quickly becoming a customer favorite! Developed from a French recipe, Tomme is a lower fat mold ripened cheese, aged at least 60 days. This gives the cheese a stronger flavor & firmer texture than the fresh Chevres, perfect for slicing.
Other items from our farm:
New! Homemade Egg Noodles! Made with certified organic flour and our own eggs-YUM!
We’ll also have eggs from our free-range, GMO-free flock. http://www.meadowviewgoatdairy.com/home
Kasza Sugar Bush of Shelby
Along with our bottled syrup, we have also expanded our line of maple products this summer to include the following:
Maple Cream – this is maple syrup condensed, cooled, and stirred into a beautiful buttery-like spread excellent on bagels, toast, doughnuts, winter squash, or a glaze on meat (esp. fish, and venison). The best thing about this is that it is totally natural only pure maple syrup.
Maple Candy – an excellent treat for someone’s sweet tooth. Simply pure maple syrup cooked down to only sugar and minerals remaining with enough moisture to hold the sugar in beautiful little maple leaf shaped candies.
Maple Granulated Sugar – is much like Maple Candy but without moisture. This can be used in place of white sugar as a natural sweetener along with the maple taste (esp. on oatmeal)
Maple Sugar-Coated Almonds and Pecans – a healthy sweet and crunchy treat. These make great gifts if they don’t get eaten before that!!!
Please stop by and check out all these 100% natural products for yourself. We would be very happy to answer any questions or visit our web www.kaszasugarbush.com Looking forward to seeing you Saturday!
