Updates #1:

The Berry Patch has added¬†fresh blueberries (a true summer treat) along with green beans. They’ve also¬†relisted their greenhouse tomatoes.

Pure Native has added mini-biscuits and changed their mini-donuts to strawberry mini-donuts (using Berry Patch strawberries).

Early Morning Harvest added a variety of new milled products that are targeted towards bakers and their needs, such as bread and pastry flour.

Grinnell Heritage Farm added certified organic lacinato kale to their previously listed kohlrabi, green garlic, rainbow chard, winterbor kale, and rosemary.

Iowa Orchard added two new pie varieties in both fresh and frozen: double crust strawberry and gooseberry.

Updates #2:

Starting in June, LaVentosa Ranch is listing products only during the first of each of the next few month’s¬†two cycles, so they’ll be back for the first cycle in July.

Wildwood Farms is doing the opposite (listing for the second of each month’s cycles). So, Lorna’s back, and she has new product: Bavarian Pretzels…a delicious snack by themselves, or with a little butter or cheese sauce.

Chess (age 12) of Live Now Rest Later is again offering swiss chard he grows in the Drake Community Garden. Chop and steam with a dash of vinegar. Tender and green, it’s a healthy and easy side dish!

Griffieon Family Farm has a 50 cent/lb sale going on their smoked ham slices (product #125).
