Chesterfield’s This Week

As of Friday,  November 30th...
The farm is closed for the 2018 season, but we invite you to check out Honey Brook Organic Farm’s Inaugural Winter Farmers’ Market, which will be held at our Distribution Center of our Pennington farm every other Saturday from 11am-3pm for the months of December and January, starting December 1st!  Bundle up, as the Center is unheated!  

We’ve asked farmers and food artisans to participate in this market after getting positive feedback from our 2018 CSA members when we invited other farmers to sell their goods during some of our pick-up days at our farms.  All of the participating farms and food establishments are family-owned and operated, so buy directly from the producers who are intimately familiar with the food destined to nurture you and your loved ones!  The following is a list of participants:  

Angie from Crooked Bottom Farm, based in Bucks County, PA, will be selling their certified sustainably grown German red & German white garlic, grown in Central New York.  

Dogwood Farms of Hillsborough, NJ will be offering their certified organic chicken eggs and whole chickens, as well as beef, lamb, salsas, their full line of pestos, tomato sauces, hot sauces, Bloody Mary mix, raviolis and fresh pastas.  In addition, Andres will be taking orders for their Winter Meat CSA program, with five monthly pick-ups at our Pennington farm from December through April. Dates: December 1st, January 12th, February 2nd, March 2nd, & April 6th  

Sandi of Garden State Salad in Flemington, NJ (and Farmer Sherry Dudas’s sister) will be selling freshly prepared hot and cold soups as well as hot organic coffee.  Enjoy her hand-made soups at the market or take home to heat and eat!  Sandi takes pride in using only the freshest, locally grown (when available) ingredients to create healthy and nutritious soups!  

HomeFront will be selling market bags, that were created by HomeFront clients after completing a course on sewing at HomeFront's sewing program. Please help these women support their new skill by purchasing a reuseable up-cycled cloth market bag to use at the farm!  They will have 5 different sizes available for sale: x-small, small, medium, large and X-large.  

Honey Brook Organic Farm will be selling CSA shares for our 2019 season, as well as any produce that may survive the wacky weather of late 2018 (we planted baby boc choi, braising mix, salad mix, radishes, arugula and cauliflower for harvesting in November; the weather proved to be unseasonably uncooperative but is still in the fields, some protected by low tunnels and row covers).  If vegetables can be harvested, in appreciation of the support our 2018 CSA members have shown our farm through our most challenging season in our 29-year history, we will be offering a combination of a CSA distribution for 2018 CSA members as well as retail sales.  

Joanna of Purely Farm's Naturally Pasture-Raised Meats in Ottsville, PA will be selling their pasture-raised pork, turkey and lamb.  Popular items include killer kielbasi, bone-in shoulder roasts (the ultimate comfort food) and ground lamb.  Have you been wondering what to do with those dried beans you got with your share last month?  Stop by for some simple, wholesome ideas like ham and bean soup or frank and beans.  She will also have their sheep skins for sale if you are looking for the perfect gift for someone who already has everything.  

Sugar Maple Jerseys Heidi Kovacs, a 38-year-old single mom of two little girls, is the sole owner of this local dairy and a first generation dairy farmer. She started this farm 5 1/2 years ago with a small loan and big dreams. Sugar Maple Jerseys is a small registered jersey herd located in  Stockton, New Jersey. Heidi milks 35 to 40 jerseys twice a day, every day and has small batches of cheese made by hand from her jersey milk. She provides customers with high quality dairy products at an affordable price while having excellent animal care, by managing a pasture-based, primarily grass-fed herd. Her milk is always antibiotic and hormone free and the products she will be selling include raw milk cheddar, flavored cheddars, aged Gouda, hand-made butter, mozzarella, feta and cheddar cheese curds.  

Sweet Spice & Honey, Halal Baked Goods The breads offered by baker Amatullah Jabriel are a collection of sweet and savory breads offering down-home ingredients, close to the earth, that are swirled, tucked and topped onto and into each loaf.  As each bread, bun, pinwheel, scone, brownie and there's even a pie in there, has its own uniqueness, character and personality, each menu item offered has been artisanally deliquesced with creative flavors that yields an end product that's tasty, satisfying and nutritious.  Always starting with a base of unbleached, unbromated flours, aluminum-free baking leaveners and pure cane sugar, Sweet Spice & Honey has taken great strides to mix locally-sourced ingredients!      

We thank you for your support during this most difficult season & we wish you and yours a very happy healthy holiday season!
