Heirloom Living Market Lilburn: Special Edition! Last Minute Orders?
Mary and I visited David and Shalley Carrell of Carrell Farms yesterday! We got to see the Water Buffalo and Alpacas that live on this beautiful and peaceful Homestead! The pastures are lush and green and the Buffalo were relaxing in — you guessed it, in the WATER! Since we did not have a Farmer of the Week scheduled, we kinda, sorta twisted their arms and Shalley will be at Market this week as our Farmer of the Week!
She will be at Market with delicious samples of Water Buffalo for you to taste! She will also have limited items for you to purchase. I have told you about the Brats, ground meat and Hot Dogs that Mary and I have both eaten! The meat was all fabulous! Of course the Water Buffalo are grass-fed and pasture raised!
Being a Texas girl — I am partial to Beef! I have tried Bison, which some people call Buffalo and was not impressed – too strong! This is not Bison! This is Water Buffalo. I don’t pretend to know all about them or how the meat differs, but I do know it is fantastic! Please take a minute at pickup to introduce yourself and get to know a little about our newest Farmers! Try one of the delicious samples that Shalley is preparing for us and take home something new, interesting and delicious for your family! She will also be sharing recipes!
Oh, by the way, for those of you who do Bone Broth – I made some with bones from Carrell Farms last week and I was blown away, not only by the extremely rich flavor but also by the excellent gel that I got! Amazing! (Yes, you know that The Black Lab got a bone or two after they were soft and perfect for him to munch!)
Their herd of Alpacas are gorgeous and David and Shalley will also be listing yarn and some beautifully crafted rugs and other items in the next few weeks! Both Mary and I are so excited that Shalley and David will be joining our Heirloom Living Market Family!
Little Tots Estate is still offering BOGO for Goat Milk!
All Raw Milk is labeled for Pet Consumption! This is the only way the RAW milk can legally be sold in the state of Georgia.
The Roastin’ Fool is back! Grab a pound of David’s robust but creamy and smooth Vigilance Blend coffee! Mornings never had it so good! David will be joining us next week with Dabrielle of My Daily Bread! David’s smooth and rich coffee will pair well with the yummy treats Dabrielle brings for you to sample!
Raspberries If you didn’t get in on Raspberries from Doug’s Garden this week, be sure and check out My Daily Bread’s offering of Raspberries! Dabrielle is also sending some down for the Farmers’ Sale Table! They are fresh and plump! I am truly loving all of the fruit that is available to us!
We will also have a limited supply of Clingstone Peaches at Market pickup! I processed and froze 2.5 quarts of peaches and 2 quarts of Strawberries this past weekend! I love to be able to have fruit in the winter months – yeah, right, like they are going to last that long! A girl can dream…or keep on freezing and canning!
Fresh Veggies are coming in fast and furiously! Be sure and check out your fresh options under the Veggie Section of the Market! You will find plentiful offerings from Fry Farm, Doug’s Garden, Back River Farm and Phoenix Gardens! I am in Veggie Heaven! I adore those little Rainbow carrots! The cabbage from last week is still fermenting, on its way to becoming yummy sauerkraut! I am still enamored with the Hakurei Turnips! Love them roasted or sliced thin and made into chips! I got LOTS of Beets last week! Some of the Beets went to make Beet kvass which is a tonic that cleanses the blood and helps detoxify the liver. As a fermented drink, it also aids in digestion. It is rich in B-complex vitamins such as niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine and minerals such as iron, manganese, copper, potassium and magnesium. Mary’s beets got roasted and canned! White Beets, Purple (Red Beets) and Golden Beets – and Purple Beets with white rings in the center! Rainbow Carrots, beautiful greens – Wow! We are blessed with this bountiful harvest!
Have you tried Organic Spelt Bread, the Gluten Free Brownies (my personal favorite) or the Pumpkin Spelt Muffins from My Daily Bread? Dabrielle’s offerings are all organic and scrumptious! She will have items on the Farmers’ Sale Table, but her Baked goods sell quickly! Ensure that you get the item you want by placing your order today!
There are many nutrient-dense, fresh, local, pesticide/chemical/soy and GMO FREE foods and grass fed, pasture raised meats available to keep you and your family well fed and healthy! So, Take Me To The Market Before It Closes!
We will see you Thursday at Gwinnett Gymnastics Center between 4:30pm and 7:30pm!
As always, Mary will have a couple of recipes featuring products she has purchased from the Market! In addition, we will have recipes from Chris and Margaret that they have generously shared!
Joyful thoughts and bountiful blessings!
