Autumns husband Jamie takes care of the Jerky. Spicy Beef Jerky. Made with humanely raised, vegetarian fed, non-hormone or antibiotic injected beef. Marinated in Worcestershire Sauce and sprinkled with special peppery spices. This is not a “HOT” jerky, but the spice level has a little heat. Very addicting.

Hi
This week let us start with a picture of crops in the ground.

3 Rock Farm Winter Garden

Taken late November 2013

With the greens starting to show and the Papaya tress in the back ground.This will be in full production late December and January.
With offerings including Fresh Lettuce, Mouthwatering Jams and Cobblers. Plants including the Papaya trees in the background. Sure is worth a moment to browse their offerings.

Florida Fresh Meat

A new delivery of chickens arrived this week. These local, Dunnellon, chickens are my favorite for a Sunday Roast as they are the best I have ever tasted.
Special Order Line. Want to discuss your requirement before you place the order. Call 352.533.8921
Christmas Ham, and Beef orders being taken now.

Gaia’s Creamery

Here we have an expanded dairy offering. Watch this space new things coming.

Register Cracker Farm

Tomatoes are coming on strong. Anticipate bulk buys for canning soon. Carrots continue to be of good quality and the squash can always be relied upon. Corn will be here soon. Fresh from South Florida. Please do remember that products that are grown without pesticides may contain a few minor pests or otherwise be a little less than perfect when compared to their chemical and pesticide laden cousins.

Roxies Garden

This week sees Lemon Grass being offered again. Use the thick part in soups and stews. I takes a while to soften, but so worth it.

Shoe Box Herb Gardens

Back from a week off. Now with a range of seasonal gift baskets, do not forget the sauces and jams.

Simply Seafood

Fresh Clams from Cedar Key with some Alfredo sauce and angel hair pasta, make a great evening meal.

Thanksgiving Market

As you prepare your Thanksgiving meals, here are some items that might be useful and healthy.

Satsumas

close.

Vegetables

Potatoes, Squash, Onoions, Caarrots

Fruits

Strawberries, Navel Red Oranges and regular navel oranges.

Organic Vietnamese Cinnamon – 5% oil.

Vietnamese cinnamon is the strongest, richest, and sweetest cinnamon around. For traditional cinnamon recipes such as gooey cinnamon rolls, the vibrant flavor of Vietnamese cinnamon really shines.

Tea – Organic China Black (Orange Pekoe)

Orange pekoe tea, which should not be confused with herbal tea, is a type of black tea which has several health benefits. There have been multiple studies investigating the effects of tea on cardiovascular disease prevention. Rutin, which is a compound found in orange pekoe tea, has antioxidant properties according to Ihme and colleagues in a 1996 article from the “European Journal of Pharmacology.” Antioxidants help to counteract free radicals preventing them from damaging tissues of the body. Thus, antioxidants helps to combat premature aging. Orange pekoe tea’s rutin compound may help improve venous circulation.
