Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart
WE ARE SELLING OUR OWN PIES THE WEEK OF THANKSGIVING! That’s right—for the first time ever you can order Laughing Tree Bakery Pies for pickup. See below for details!
We are offering two fabulous pies for Thanksgiving week:
RIGHTEOUS PUMPKIN PIE: We believe this is the most unique pumpkin pie you will ever try… We make the custard using two different squash varieties grown for us by our friends down the road at Maple Moon Farm (the Long Pie Pumpkin and Trombecino Squash). Sweetened with organic Demerara brown sugar, and fattened up with organic cream and our own fresh eggs—this custardy pumpkin filling melts in your mouth! But that is just the beginning… What makes this pie so over-the-top righteous is the crust. We combine oats, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds with a bit of sugar, organic butter and salt to produce an extraordinarily memorable oatie/seedy/wee-bit-salty crust. You heard me right—no flour in this whole pie—just deliciousness. 9 inch pie—serves 8 happily. $20
ABBA PETER’S FAVORITE APPLE PIE: Hilde’s dad is an out and out apple pie fanatic. For his 60th birthday he didn’t want cake—he just wanted Hilde’s apple pie… Well here it is folks—the real deal—and Hilde will be rolling every single one out with her rolling pin! We use a combination of flours (including organic Michigan-grown Barley flour) and lots of organic butter to create a flaky yet substantial crust. Then we pack it as full as we can with local Northern Spies, Mutsus, and Ida Red apples, organic Demerara brown sugar, and a sprinkling of spice to do it up right! Just sweet enough… The way Abba Peter likes it! 9 inch pie—serves 8 for breakfast. $25

Maple Moon Farm of Shelby
Winter has started out in full force. We hope you all are staying warm and nourished in this cold weather.
The gray skies have kept the hoops quiet and still, the plants are resting and not growing without the sun. We are hoping the sun comes out and we are able to pick before Thanksgiving. We don’t feel optimistic that we’ll have greens this Saturday, however we may be able to pick early next week. If you are interested in picking up greens next Wednesday in Muskegon, please let us know. We will notify you if they are available. Call(231)861-2535 or email email@example.com
This week we’re offering:
*FARMER GRADE SWEET POTATOES
(farmer grade refers to produce that has been graded out for size or minor damage, this is the produce that many farmers eat. These are $1 less per pound than our regular sweet potatoes)
*POTATOES (we’ll be bringing our best mashers!)
-Trombicino-a delicious Italian squash that is very similar in flavor and texture to a Butternut. These are a unique squash, that you won’t find in stores. If you like Butternut, give these a try. These typically weight 3-6 pounds
-Buttercup-a delicious little desert squash, with dry creamy flesh. Our favorite for baking and mashing.
-Long Pie-a smooth and creamy fleshed pumpkin. Best pie pumpkin we’ve tasted! Get these for your holiday pies, before they’re gone.
BAKING PIE? WE RECOMMEND TROMBICINO, BUTTERNUT, AND LONG PIE.
-these are tasty little gems! These cook up so tender and delicate you can eat the skin and flesh together. (no peeling!) They are typically about a pound.
We dried a mix of our nutritious vegetable and herbs for a simple and healthy vegetable broth or to add to bone broth. These include onion, carrot, celery, parsley, salt and peppercorns (the peppercorns are not produced on our farm, but ethically sourced and certified organic). They are bundled in a cotton muslin bag for a quick, easy and local vegetable broth. (the whole bag can be composted after use). Pre-packaged broths in stores are devoid of many nutrients due to the heat produced in packaging. Our broth mix contains a dense amount of vitamins and minerals. Each bag produces 2 quarts of broth.
THAI GINGER BROTH BAGS!
Wonderful Thai flavors, all grown right here in West Michigan. We combined our home grown ginger, lemongrass, Thai basil, leeks, and a pinch of cayenne for an incredible infusion of flavors. These can infuse water, chicken broth, coconut milk, or a combination. Each bag produces 2 qts of broth.
We preserved the intense flavors of our culinary garden herbs. Harvested by hand, dried, and then cut and hand sifted, these herbs are brimming with flavor and quality.
*CRUSHED RED PEPPER
All the herbs we use are grown organically or ethically wildcrafted.
(Watch for two NEW teas coming in December!!!)
Teas are available in individual tea bags or loose leaf.
*HERBAL SALVES AND CREAMS
-MAMA’A ALL PURPOSE SALVE
-MIKE’S MUSCLE RELAXER
-PATTI’S HARD WORKING HAND CREAM
