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.
We will have a small amount of chemical-free rhubarb from our garden. Our rhubarb features tender, thinner stalks.
We will have our certified organic non-GMO corn along in two different options:
Whole corn (for making masa) – 2# bags. If you want corn in larger amounts than just 2#, please email me. We will have the little packets of lime necessary for making the masa, as well.
Freshly-ground corn meal – 2# bags. We took our whole corn down to Windmill Island in Holland and had them grind corn meal for us. This stoneground meal is fresh, fresh, fresh–what I will have along to market Saturday is the second batch!
In addition, we will have Grassfield Farms organic raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:
Aged Cheddar – You asked, and we listened! A sharp cheddar, aged a year. Award-winning!
Chili – Gouda with Red Chili flakes, this mild and creamy cheese has delightful spice without being too hot.
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.

The Roaring Mouse of Hart
It’s coffee time! We are now serving freshly brewed pour-over coffee! Fill a ceramic mug to enjoy as you shop, or get a to-go cup to keep you going through the morning. A mug-full is $1 and the to-go cup is $3. The Bolivian coffee is almost gone! Coffee is seasonal, so it may be a while until I can get more. Don’t worry! It will be replaced with another delicious coffee!
In the roaster this week:
- Almost out! Bolivia Fair Trade Organic – a sweet rich cup with chocolate notes and a bright acidity. Very good with dessert.
- Ethiopia Sidama Fair Trade Organic – a complex cup with berry notes and a sweet finish. This is one of our favorites!
- Decaffinated Peru Fair Trade Organic – rich and sweet, with chocolate and caramel notes. A very delicious decaf! This coffee was decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process. It is a natural, chemical free process which allows the bean to retain much of its unique flavor.
- Sumatra Fair Trade Organic – Bold, earthy, with a molasses sweetness and a light acidity. This is a limited supply and is only available by the ounce.
- Costa Rica Finca Amistad Organic- A sweet lower-acid cup. This is my newest, and I am still working on tasting notes.
Come taste the fresh difference!
We try not to roast too much extra in order to keep the coffee fresh every week. Advance orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your favorite coffee before you get some!
