News from the SVGM

This is the time of year I begin to seriously anticipate Spring. As we head into what could be the coldest couple of days we'll see this winter, I've a pile of mailing envelopes of seeds that I've ordered sitting on my coffee table, waiting to be organized, with some waiting to be sown within the next week. Our produce farmers are, most likely, doing much of the same: beginning to plan for their upcoming growing season~~~ordering seeds and reviewing seed supplies, repairing greenhouses, hoop houses and equipment, fertilizing soils when weather permits. Thinking about new varieties they can offer you this year, and getting those last "slower," somewhat restful days in, to refuel for the long days of farming ahead. I truly believe that we should all plant a few seeds for something each year. It's a remarkable process, watching a seed that we've placed into soil unfold into a plant; it's a wonderful way to understand where these nourishing plants come from, and an eye-opener, as we begin to understand the care and work that goes into a farmer's field of vegetables. I hope for all of you who support the SVGM, that you've come to understand and feel the movement of Central Pa's growing season, and have a heightened appreciation for what all of our local food producers go through to bring you their foods throughout the year. Just as it is their way of life to farm, I hope that the SVGM has become a part of your way of life, as you feed yourselves and your loved ones. Thank you always, for your continuing support throughout the year!
This week, Beaver Run, Stone Meadow, and Cow-a-Hen Farms should all be back for tomorrow's market. It's Valentine's Day on Sunday, so why not shop for some wonderful local foods to cook a special meal, instead of going out to a very crowded restaurant? Giselle promises to have "Valentine's Goodness" tomorrow, and Meesh Tarsa will be there, too. 
So, Happy Valentine's Day, everyone~~~  make it an excuse to have a celebratory meal based on foods from the SVGM!
See you tomorrow~~~

Stone Meadow Farm:
Artisan cheeses, grass-fed beef & veal

News from the SVGM

With February 2, we crossed over the midpoint hump of what is officially Winter. Imbolc, Groundhog Day, St. Brigid's Day~ however you choose to celebrate it, we are into the second six weeks of winter, and then it's Spring! I actually heard conflicting stories about that darned groundhog and his shadow. Time will tell. This week's thaw and yesterday's rain made things a bit soggy out there: I have a car that is stuck for the time being, until the ground drains and the nighttime temps go back down. Gotta stop driving over that field.... I was naively deceived, the ground hasn't frozen that much at all, and boy was it spongy. So, good luck with the mud, but enjoy the nice but odd "winter" weather~~~wish I had a second pair of mud boots right now! I'm sure it will get cold again before it's all over.
Giselle's Breads and Tarsa Family Farm will both be at market this week. Cow-a-Hen, Stone Meadow, and Beaver Run Farms will all be back next week.
See you tomorrow~~~

News from the SVGM

 I hope those of you who were socked in by last weekend's storm have dug out and recuperated, and that everyone made it safely through. It certainly was a humbling reminder of just how powerful Nature's energies can be when they decide to gather all their forces, and Pennsylvania as we all saw, was square in the path of this one. This is an area where most of us travel a regular circuit of anywhere from 15 to 45 miles: we regularly do business in, and use the services of, many of the Susquehanna Valley regions, and I was struck by the major differences in snowfall amounts in our region alone: anywhere from a "dusting" to 14 inches. I had the luxury of being more fascinated with Saturday's snow and not inconvenienced, but I hope things are getting back to normal for those of you who dealt with the brunt of the storm. 
     Here are some market updates for tomorrow:
     Giselle's breads will have cornbread, sticky buns, and Challah tomorrow, along with her other delightful baked specialties and breads.
     Beaver Run Farms will not be at market tomorrow or next week; Becky and Steve are out-of-town celebrating the birth of another grandchild! They will return Friday, February 12.
     If you will need any meats, poultry or cheeses for the next couple of weeks from Brian (Stone Meadow Farm) or Bill (Cow-a-Hen Farm), you will want to make sure to get to market tomorrow, since both of them will be absent next week, Feb. 5, because of the PASA conference in State College. 
     Take care everyone, stay warm, and be sure to play in whatever snow you do have left! We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
This week at market:
Stone Meadow Farm:

News from the SVGM

      It's still uncertain the exact impact the approaching storm will have on our area, but it looks like we'll all be getting something! So far it doesn't look like it will start till the evening hours, so the indoor market will be taking place as usual. Stay safe this weekend; at least we seem to be out of the 12-inch range.......
     A few "heads up" subjects to keep you all informed ahead of time:
     Beaver Run Farms will not be at market next week, January 29, or the following week, February 5. They will be visiting family in California with the new arrival of grandchild #13!  Beginning February 12, they will be at market every Friday till spring.
     Stone Meadow Farm and Cow-a-Hen Farm will both also miss the February 5 market: they will be attending the annual Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture Conference. The February 5 market will be held with Tarsa Family Farm and Giselle's Breads holding down the fort!
     So, everyone, have a snowy but safe and warm weekend. Load up on provisions and have your shovels and boots ready to go, and be sure to hit the market tomorrow, because if you're homebound, you may want to simmer a soup or a stew, or slow-roast some beef or pork or chicken, or make the best grilled cheese you can imagine to go with that soup~~~see you tomorrow!
This week at market:
Stone Meadow Farm:
Artisan cheeses, grass-fed beef & veal

News from the SVGM

The first snowfall of the season blew in~ and by~ fiercely, with whiteouts and icy roads causing a tremendous tangle of traffic in the early evening hours a couple of days ago. But the beauty of yesterday's morning, with it's light covering of snow in the clear early hours, was breathtaking: it somehow mitigated the harshness of the previous evening's squalls. Thankfully we all got home safely, though exhausted! Mother Nature has a way of waking you up with a thud sometimes; that was a nice long fall-into-winter this year....
I believe I have the vendor list up to date now. Meesh Tarsa will continue at the indoor market for a while; she still has a good supply of her delicious heirloom potatoes, and also has shoulder roasts and legs of Tunis lamb.  Giselle emailed me a couple of photos of her sour dough loaves and croissants~~yum! Scroll down to see them!  Beaver Run Farm is back on their 2nd and 4th Friday schedule now, so this week is one of their "off" weeks.
Thank you again for helping to support this fall and winter season market of the SVGM~~ looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

News from the SVGM

Happy 2016 everyone! Here's hoping you are successfully settling back into the normal routines of post-holiday life. It certainly feels like winter is upon us, finally, but I did feel the very real sense yesterday that the days are actually getting longer again: it wasn't pitch-black at 5:30pm! The sunshine has also been a welcome change, and all of this helps to usher in a new year to begin again.

The SVGM indoor market will continue through the winter with its seasonal regulars anchoring the weeks ahead. It's time for substantial, inside-warming fare like chili and stew and roasts and roast chickens, so be sure to stay the course of healthy eating by getting your beef, pork, and poultry from our farmers at the SVGM. Giselle's baking her hearty breads, too, and Stone Meadow can keep you supplied with their outstanding handmade cheeses. 

I can't say it enough: we appreciate your support of this market more than we can express, and each and every week you shop with us, each and every email you share with another, helps to ensure the market's continued success and staying power. So thank you, thank you, and a blessed New Year to you all~~~ stay warm, and shop local!
