Karla from Heart of Iowa Soapworks sent this: “Farmhouse Suds is Baaaacckkk!¬†This soap bar has revolving scents depending on which new one I want to try! One thing remains constant: the soap is made with lard and/or tallow from local Iowa Farmers.¬†The lard is from Stamps Family Farms and the tallow from Ebersole Beef Company.¬†It is scented with a men’s cologne fragrance called Nautica.¬† Tested it out on my brothers and they give it a big thumbs up!”

Iowa Orchard lowered prices on their baked and frozen traditional pies as follows: 2-crust apple and pumpkin – was $13, now $12; dutch crumb apple – was $12, now $11; dutch crumb peach – was $14, now $12; blackberry, blueberry, bluebarb, mixed berry, raspberry, strazberry, pecan, and pecan apple – was $15, now $14; cherry, peach, rhubarb, and strawberry rhubarb – was $14, now $13; chocolate pecan and Southern Missouri peach – was $16, now $15.

Producer Updates:

Good Sheperd Grass Farm is a new IFC producer from near Monroe in Southern Iowa. They are starting out with four products – 100% grass-fed ground beef as well as pasture-raised chicken (whole, cut-up, and boneless/skinless breast). Give them a try to welcome them to the IFC!!!

Two Rivers Honey is back (after being out of honey for a few cycles) with¬†four sizes of raw wildflower honey from this year’s crop.

Grandma’s Soap is back after taking off several cycles with six different soap products, including an all-natural¬†multi-purpose household cleaner and liquid laundry soap.

Wildwood Farms is off this cycle (Lorna will only be part¬†of the second cycle each month this¬†summer¬†so she can¬†have more time to spend on¬†her garden, farmer’s markets, and with¬†her daughter).

SalAmander Farms will be taking off a few cycles. Sondra notes: “New crop lamb won’t be ready till early August but if anyone wants a whole or half they should go ahead and contact me before then.” You can get her contact info off her profile on the website.
