Spring Holiday Sales This Saturday at Prairie Fruits Farm

Posted 4/10/2009 4:20pm by Leslie Cooperband or Wes Jarrell.

Despite what the weatherman says, our plants and our goats say "IT IS SPRING HERE at Prairie Fruits Farm."

Millie, one of the first Nubian does born here, just delivered triplets.  The first kid to come out was breach, so I had to assist her, but once the first little bugger was out, she delivered two more gigantic kids--a beautiful doeling and a nearly 9 lb. buckling.  Mother and triplets are doing fine.

Come see them and all of the other new arrivals this Saturday (that's tomorrow!) April 11th from 9AM to 12 noon. 

We will be offering tasting and sales of our cheeses as well as products from several other local producers including Blue Moon Farm, Tomahnous Farm, Stewart's Artisan Breads and Pastries and Seven Sisters Farm.

We will have our fresh chevre, Ewe Bloom, Moonglo and Huckleberry's Blue.

Blue Moon Farm will have spinach, kale, arugula and mixed spring greens.

Tomahnous Farm will be bringing pastured eggs, shitake mushrooms, organic whole wheat flour, swiss chard and fresh herbs.

Stewart's Artisan Breads will have his usual assortment of hearty and rustic breads, bagels, granola and granola bars (these are highly addictive, so buyer beware!). Special for Easter: potato dinner rolls.

Seven Sisters Farm will have their gorgeous hand-spun yarn for sale as well.

We will also be offering fresh and local farm breakfast including:

  • Alisa DeMarco's Italian "Easter Pie" with Prairie Fruits Farm Eggs (our newest feathered girls have started laying cute little pullet eggs) and ricotta cheese and Blue Moon Farm Spinach
  • Tomahnous Farm egg and Stewart's Bagel sandwich with Prairie Fruits Farm Chevre
  • Prairie Fruits Farm Peach Streusel Coffee Cake
  • Blue Moon Farm Green Mountain Potato Hash Browns
  • Triple S Farms bacon and sausage
  • Fair trade coffee, spiced hot chocolate featuring Prairie Fruits Farm Goat Milk and mint tea.

We have been overwhelmed and overjoyed with the response to our open house and farm breakfasts. We appreciate everyone's patience as we learn how to get food out to you in a timely manner. This week, we'll be making substantial improvements in traffic flow so that you don't have to wait too long to shop or to receive your breakfast. We will have a separate line just to take and deliver breakfast orders.  Stewart Pequinot and Lisa Haynes will be here to help sell their products, and Leslie will focus on sampling and selling Prairie Fruits Farm Cheese.

The weather forecast sounds very promising, so we hope you will come out to marvel at the goats, do a little local food shopping and enjoy a farm fresh breakfast. 

As always, thank you for your patronage.
