|This is not a C H I C K E N or an exotic bird that blew in with one of the tropical storms. It is an Emu, six foot tall and frightening if it ambles up behind you and sniffs your hair. Nectar Hill Farm has two of them, they are incredibly beautiful, in a regal sort of way and their feathers can look fur like in the sunshine. And evidently fly fishermen use these emu feathers for fly tying. So if you have a fly fisherman on your gift giving list this holiday season, stop and see Sonia at Nectar Hills Farm on Saturday.
…and remember, whatever you need,
we do have it at the Cooperstown Farmers’ Market!
We also have the smaller-sized C H I C K E N and D U C K varieties, as well as beef, veal, pork, lamb, venison, every imaginable kind of sausage and eggs of every color.
For veggies, we have every variety of squash including butternut , spagetti, acorn, and more, cauliflower, kale, beans, and peppers. And I am told our pumpkins – are priced less that the pumpkins at Walmart.
If you haven’t heard… there is a bumper crop of apples out there this year. Perfect opportunity to show kids how to make apple sauce, apple butter, apple crisp, apple cake, or apple pie. Of all things apple, what is your favorite apple recipe?
Speaking of recipes… Black Bean Pumpkin Soup and Cumin Roasted Pumpkin Seeds recipe cards will be added to the recipe library at the front of the market. Thank you, Anna! And if you are stuck for a new cooking idea, Laura from THE FARM has a wonderful selection of vegetable recipes on her website, organized by vegetable, BRILLIANT. http://www.thefarmandbandb.com/
P L E A S E N O T E : The Market has gone to FALL HOURS and will be opening at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, one hour later than the summer opening time.
