Thanks for a Great Season!

Our first year of participating in the Watertown Farm and Craft Market went very well! THANK YOU! We learned a lot and loved getting to know our customers! We will miss seeing you all in the off season!

Over the colder months ahead we plan to rest and continue some baking. My sourdough bread will be for sale at Nolt’s Country Store in Lowville and I can do additional baking upon request!

We hope to add another market to our schedule next summer and are already planning to make more adjustments and increased inventory for next year! If there are any specialty items that you would appreciate us growing or baking we would love to know about it! We would also like to hear what farmers markets in the area you attend.

Food and Family

Our kids LOVE FOOD! (They take after their mother…) It is so much fun to eat food that we grew ourselves. Here’s a shot of us after enjoying food at Jeb’s (in Lowville) and also a couple pics of OUR food.

Breakfast – french toast made with Tug’s Market Challah bread and eggs with sautéed beet greens

Dinner – a chicken salad complete with tons of greens and lettuce right from the back yard!

Other yummy dishes we enjoy:

Kale salad (chopped raw kale mixed with bacon, sunflower seeds, craisins, onions and tossed in a mayo vinegar, sugar dressing)

Tomato cucumber sandwiches (made with Sourdough Sandwich bread and BEEF STAKE tomatoes)

Carrot bake (shredded carrots with butter, salt and pepper)

Quiche with beet greens (Eggs, cream, onions, lots of beet greens, fried sausage and tons of cheese all on a press in the pan pie crust)

Green beans sautéed in butter and garlic

Come pic up some yummy food for your family at the Watertown Farm and Craft market on Wednesday! We’d love to see you there!

Farm stand

We had high hopes of supplying customers with our fresh produce at our farm stand. I have simply been too busy to keep it stalked with fresh produce.

We encourage you to check out the stand at the intersection of Route 12 and Route 177 at the bottom of Tug Hill outside of Lowville.

This stand is ran by some fellow local farmers and is generally open every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.0809161747

What we do in our “spare time”

0710161428aWe thank God for giving us the time and energy to work hard to bring you quality food! We have been staying busy wearing our many hats (trucker, gardener, mom, and baker just to name a few).

It’s hard work. Just when we start to wonder if it’s worth it all we get positive feed back from our customers! It makes my whole week when someone walks up to our booth at the farmers market and says they enjoyed their lettuce or bread and have come back for more!

We appreciate our customers and hope you appreciate our quality produce and bread!

This week at Tug’s

Joining the ranks at Tug’s Market Garden booth tomorrow will be:

ARUGULA &

MIZUNA mustard

 

These great additions to any salad will add to our collection of fresh garden GREENS (bagged mix and beets), LETTUCE (bagged mix, butter crunch head lettuce, alkindus (red) head lettuce) and  SPINACH.

Best sellers last week were our BABY CARROTS, BEETS, RADISHES, and edible podded PEAS.

For our bread fans, there will also be our sourdough, breakfast bread, Challah) and Monkey Bread Muffins 🙂

We hope to see you tomorrow at the Watertown Farm and Craft Market!!

Let Us Eat Fresh!

(Pun totally intended J) At yesterday’s market we were able to bring in the FRESH salad fixin’s! After last week’s heat we decided to pre-bag our lettuce and greens and have them chilling in a cooler. It worked! We had fresh lettuce and greens even at the end of the day!

This week we added:

KALE (in the Red Russian and Siberian varieties)

HEAD LETTUCE (butter crunch and red head)

The rainstorm that came through at 6:30 and lasted a couple hours made us a little nervous but then the sun came out and made for a pleasant day. There wasn’t quite the foot traffic of last week but it was still our best week yet. The fact that it was a bit slower allowed us to have more time to visit with customers and we really enjoyed getting to know them more and share with them about our garden produce and bread.

Thanks to all those that stopped by, chatted and picked up some of our goods! We hope to see you again soon!
