It’s National Farmers Market Week! πŸ…πŸŒ½πŸ‘

National Farmers Market Week

August 4 through 10th is National Farmers Market Week! Come celebrate with us! August is the height of Pennsylvania produce, and we can help you learn how to preserve summer’s bounty to bring the flavors of summer to those cold winter days. Stop by to meet Linda and learn the basics of canning. She’ll talk about what fruits and veggies can be canned, as well as safety procedures you need to know.

We have the beef!

Pasture Song Farm is excited to bring pastured beef to market, starting this Sunday! The beef is from Wagyu-Jersey cross cattle that were grass finished. They were raised collaboratively by Jeremy (Jeremy and Clara are the partners who own and operate Pasture Song Farm) and Jeremy’s family, and are from Seven Stars Farm calves. The Wagyu breed is known for intense marbling, which translates into tender, delicious beef! These cattle grazed freely on 15 acres of perennial pasture, and were raised without antibiotics, hormones, and other modern crutches. As calves they were fed grain and milk, so they are not 100% grass fed. They weren’t fed grain for the last year, however, and were finished only on pasture. This leads to a healthier fatty acid profile in the meat, as well as other health and flavor benefits. To learn more ask Clara at market!

Take a moment to relax

Take a moment for yourself while you’re at the Market this week and experience a therapeutic massage from Kim Deane of Healing in Reach. Kim will be available for mini massage sessions and will have information on her studio and services. Kim specializes in acupressure, deep tissue, medical massage, hot stone, prenatal massage, energy healing and organic skincare. She offers a unique approach that combines a blend of traditional massage with her own techniques as a physical and spiritual healer.
