Raw Milkis BACK


Raw Milk is BACK!!

Clover Creek Cheese Cellar has re-introduced their raw milk. A top seller. Order some today and taste the difference for yourself.
We also continue to carry free-range brown eggs, thanks to Rispoli’s Produce, and our own raw honey.
New this week, fresh Rosemary. Over-winterered in our high tunnel, it has an amazing piney fragrance. Pairs well with all types of meat or baked in your favorite bread.

March is National Nutrition Month


Happy Nutrition Month

March is National Nutrition Month. A month that the National Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics has set aside to educate Americans about healthy eating and healthy living. You can find the fact sheet “17 Health Tips for 2017” at their website http://www.eatright.org/resources/national-nutrition-month

We at Green"er" Acres Farm and our partner growers feel that the best and easiest way to eat healthy is to buy and use as much of our groceries as possible from local, trustworthy growers.

Although it is still cold out there and produce is not in abundance in our area at this time of year, there are still healthy dietary options available locally.

In our marketplace, we currently have grassfed beef, home-raised pork, free-range brown eggs, local raw honey, dried herbs and more. Produce will be added as it becomes available, so check back often.

Last Minute Addition -- EGGS!!


Just Added — EGGS!!

We just added a new grower and new product.

Welcome Deb & Ralph Rispoli of Rispoli’s Produce.

We have been marketing with Deb & Ralph for many years and found them to be great mentors and remarkable farmers.

Try some of their farm fresh, free- range eggs.

Last Week to Stock Up on Beef!!


Last Week to Stock Up on Beef!!

This is your LAST WEEK to stock up on the great 10 lb package of Clover Creek Cheese Cellar’s Grassfed Beef for $62.15. (You will still be able to purchase the beef in single units until it is gone)

Raw milk will be returning hopefully sometime in Mid to Late March.

Limited amount of Pork Products still available.

Hand gathered, RAW HONEY, available. Get it before it is all gone. Not heated or diluted, simply crushed and stained. Studies show that local, raw honey helps with seasonal allergies.

Last Minute Addition -- HONEY!!


HONEY!!!

When we checked our bee hive yesterday,we found that, unfortunately, our bees did not make it through the winter. We are quite sad for this loss, but that also means that we can now freely harvest the remaining honey within the hive.

We are currently gathering and using the “crush and strain” technique to hand harvest our honey. It is unprocessed, raw honey direct from the hive.

Proceeds from the sale of the honey will go toward purchasing a new “nuc” of bees to install into our hive in April.

Purchasing our honey shows a commitment to helping the bee populations and aids in valuable pollination of our crops.

Quantities will fluctuate as we continue to strain and jar up the honey, so if it appears unavailable, it may have sold out. Check back often.
