Northwest Greenhouse & Floral, Inc. is a new IFC producer from Boone operated by Mike Salama. He’s got limited quantities of chemical-free romaine lettuce, spinach, and swiss chard listed. Welcome aboard, Mike, and keep them coming because there’s nothing better than fresh IA greens in the dead of winter!

Wildwood Farms is back with a wide array of baked goods, baking and soup mixes, roasted almonds, and trail mixes. Lorna also notes, “I am listing some new things I’m very excited about. My husband has taken up wood turning this winter and has some lovely pens and styluses to sell. All are one-of-a-kind and hand-made in Wellsburg.” 

From Bryan with Iowa Orchard: “Due to the heavy apple crop this season, we are giving away pint samples of apple cider to anyone who orders ANYTHING to promote the fact that we’ll have apples and cider until probably June.”

Zaza’s Pasta listed two new products: 1) Lemony-Artichoke Ravioli in Spinach Pasta (a new vegan flavor) and 2) Sun-Dried Tomato & Pistachio Pesto (made with organic sun-dried tomatoes; use as a topping on their Crostini breads or as a sauce for their Pastas).

Country View Dairy added 3 lb tubs of their Plain Greek yogurt. Now those of you who were buying several of the smaller tubs can get what you want and save money at the same time! 

Fieldstone Farms added two sizes of their popular Love Spell Natural Lotion (fortified with replenishing butters, hydrated honey, and avocado & sweet almond oils), plus scented, unscented and French vanilla versions of their Love Spell Natural Moisturizing Hand Cream.

Al Dente Toffee added a Maple Bacon Waffle Toffee (loaded with bacon and topped with a maple cream coating; Who doesn’t like bacon with maple syrup?) and a “Be Mine” Edition Toffee (their Classic Almond with red, pink, and white hearts added).

Yoke S Ranch has their Corriente beef sticks on sale for $10/lb and Wild Rose Pastures added Grass-Fed Lamb Stew Meat.
