Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart
Greetings from Laughing Tree Brick Oven Bakery—
Hear ye!  Hear ye! We will be baking for the coming weekend of 9/5 but we will NOT be baking for the following weekend of  9/12—so stock up this coming weekend if you are able!  Our bread freezes beautifully…  This is an unusual time of year for us to take a little break but we have some building projects pressing down upon us (including the installation of 4 new solar panels to power our bakery refrigerators), and we want to be sure to tackle them while the weather is still good.  So we will see you this weekend of 9/5 and we will see you again on 9/19.  Feel free to place an order for either of these weekends.
Also, if you haven’t yet tried the Big Country loaf, I encourage you just to go ahead and order one!  We are making just 20 of these each week and they move fast… This loaf weighs around 2 pounds and is amazingly supple and moist even after several days.  It’s flavor is rich and wheaty—with just a hint of rye.  It’s come to be one of our everyday breads—a favorite for slicing thick and eating with soup or for loading up with tomatoes! We are honored to bake for you and your family!  Because small good things matter.

The Roaring Mouse of Hart
This cooler weather is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee or tea! Either way you like it, we have you covered! Every week we have 4-6 varieties of freshly roasted coffee, and 5+ varieties of loose leaf tea. We also have some amazing fair-trade organic chocolate barks, and chocolate covered coffee beans! We can only bring a few varieties of our chocolates to the market each week, so be sure to check out our list on Facebook and pre-order if there is something specific you want.

We are not planning to attend market on Saturday Sept 5 for Labor Day Weekend, so stock up this week!

Featured coffee of the week! This week we are featuring our Guatemala Antigua FTO. This is a delicious light-medium roast, with a full creamy body, and a mild acidity. The aroma is floral, and the flavor is complex, with layers of baking spices like cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.

We will also plan to bring our Ethiopia Amaro Gayo, Guatemala FTO, Papua New Guinea FTO, Colombia FTO, and Sumatra Decaf.

As always, we sell our coffee by the ounce so you can get the perfect amount to use while it is the freshest. We also have gift certificates; the perfect gift for a coffee lover!
Come taste the fresh difference! Coffee is seasonal, so expect some variety. We try not to roast too much extra in order to keep the coffee fresh every week.

Our list has gotten too long to include here, so check out our Facebook page for the full list of what we have available.

Email us to order in advance, and we will have it bagged up and ready for you. Advance orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your favorite coffee before you get there, and speed up your shopping if you are in a hurry!

Bonao Cacao of Muskegon
This Bonao cacao is raw, organic and carefully hand picked to insure premium quality. The farm located in the Dominican Republic uses earth friendly practices and even holds “The cacao experience” where people can come see the farm, learn and have fun participating in the farming! Cocoa comes from the cacao tree and then is roasted and processed to make the powder and chocolates everyone loves. However, during this process many of the nutrients and antioxidants are lost. Cacao is the same as cocoa but in a raw form, allowing the beans to stay in it’s natural state to give you the best benefits possible. Come check us out this Saturday for a sample of the bean itself and to learn more! We have beans, powder, nibs, butter and tasty healthy chocolates! We look forward to seeing everybody Saturday!

Shady Side Farm of Holland
NOTE: I will not be at market next Saturday, September 5, so please stock up this week for your Labor Day festivities. This week I will have along our certified organic beans, all harvested last fall, in the following varieties:
Black Turtle – Common black bean with a thick skin and a meaty texture. We’ve got a lot of these beans left, so they are discounted $1 a pound while supplies last.
Black Valentine – Taste 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. We’ve got a lot of these beans left, so they are discounted $2 a pound while supplies last.
Marrow – (Almost gone) Plump, soft white beans that soak up the flavors of whatever you cook them with.
October – (Almost gone) Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Painted Lady – (Almost gone) Slightly sweet bean, smooth, creamy texture, good in everything.
Pinto – (Almost gone) Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking.
Zebra – (Almost gone) Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean.
Please let us know ahead of time if you’d like to order 5# bags of any one variety, so that we can pre-bag those and bring them along.
In addition, we offer Grassfield Farms organic raw aged cheeses in the following flavors:
NEW! Smoked Gouda – I’ll have samples along. Sounds delicious!
Aged Cheddar – You asked, and we listened! A sharp cheddar, aged a year. Award-winning!
Country Dill – A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.
Crofters – This delicious cheese is aged 1 year with a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.
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.
Cheese Sticks – Want to try some cheese, but don’t need a whole 8 ounces? We’ll have a few cheese sticks along each week, in a variety of cheese types, for $2 each.
I’ll also bring along some hand-dyed yarn for fall/winter knitting projects. This wool or wool/nylon blend yarn is from our sheep, hand-dyed by us. Stop by and see what we’ve got!

Meadow View Goat Dairy of Fremont
We’ll be bringing our Sweet Corn, Incredible, and usual assortment of fresh and aged Chevre’s this Saturday!
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.”
Seasoned Chevreʹ                                                    
Our fresh Chevre available in your favorite flavorings: Blueberry Vanilla (great on a morning bagel!) Hickory-smoked bacon Bits, Garlic, Italian Herb, & Hot Pepper
Feta                                                                                       
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.
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.
Dutch Kase                                                               
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.
Marco Similar to Dutch Kase but pasteurized and vacuum sealed, it comes in Pepper, Sage, Italian & Garlic.
Other items from our farm:
We’ll also have eggs from our free-range, GMO-free flock.
We will be at market ONLY the last Saturday of the month.  Hope to see you this week, thank you!

New Vendor!
Blackbird Farms of Coopersville
We welcome Greg Dunn of Blackbird Farms! Greg honed his farming skills at Trillium Haven, serving there as farm manager for five years. He then purchased a conventional farm in Coopersville and for the past three years has been transforming it. In his words: “To say it straight, Blackbird Farms grows food for people. Good, honest food, grown using only natural and sustainable practices. More specifically, we grow over a hundred varieties of vegetables on our sixteen-acre farm just north of Coopersville, Michigan. We are surely fresh and local, but, deeper than these buzzwords, the heart of what we do is health. We trust that our calling is to care for green, growing things in a manner that generates health in the soil, in the environment, in human bodies, and in communities ecological, social, and cultural. Finally, we strive to do this work with a sense of hospitality, delight, and gratitude. So, in other words: Welcome. Enjoy. Thank you!”
This week Blackbird Farm will plan to bring heirloom tomatoes, multi-color cherry tomatoes, green beans, mini-cabbages, carrots, beets, potatoes, onions, and garlic, as well as all manner of cut flowers.

Bonao Cacao of Muskegon
Welcome Michael and Nicole Muenstermann! They will join us Saturday  to introduce an amazing super-food, bursting with antioxidants…Raw organic cacao! “Our passion for chocolate led us to discover a small family farm in a city named Bonao in the Dominican Republic. This Bonao cacao is raw, organic and carefully hand picked to insure premium quality. The farm uses earth friendly practices and even holds “The cacao experience” where people can come see the farm, learn and have fun participating in the farming! Cocoa comes from the cacao tree and then is roasted and processed to make the powder and chocolates everyone loves. However, during this process many of  the nutrients and antioxidants are lost. Cacao is the same as cocoa but in a raw form, allowing the beans to stay in it’s natural state to give you the best benefits possible. Come check us out this Saturday for a sample of the bean itself and to learn more! We have beans, powder, nibs, butter and tasty healthy chocolates! We look forward to seeing everybody Saturday!”

Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart
Greetings from Laughing Tree Brick Oven Bakery—
Have you tried our newest, and largest loaf—the BIG COUNTRY?
This beautiful boule weighs in at right around 2 pounds…  Larger than any of our other loaves it’s the perfect pick if you’ve got a crowd to feed.  Made with an organic germ-restored wheat flour (a flour that’s got the germ and the endosperm–but no bran), and an organic Michigan-grown rye flour, this bread is sumptuously supple. You just won’t believe how moist and soft the crumb (the interior) stays for days and days.
Available at market this weekend: $7.50 for each whopping loaf.  (We sell half loaves too of course…)
