A Message from Rachael:

Hello everyone!

Ordering is now open for the February 13th pickup!

There are some items that you will need to order early if you want to be sure to get them. These include:
  • The amazing goat cheese from Gordon's Goat Dairy. We're hoping to introduce their "Goat"zarella (Goat mozzarella that Gordon has started making recently). Also, due to the amazing response to the cranberry havarti they will continue making it with one small change - they will add MORE organic cranberries from now on! Be sure to order before January 31!
  • New Moon Cookies - Order before January 30 to make sure we will have your favourites in stock. Did you know that New Moon bakes a special cookie only for the month of February? LoveBites are our Valentine's Day cookie. Made with cocoa, chocolate chips, chipotle pepper, and cinnamon - a blend of spicy and sweet. They are available for this pickup only! Like all the New Moon Cookies they are vegan and nut free!
  • Rounds Beans - Stock up on Dried Beans. Steve and Dianne like a bit more lead time to prepare your order so add them to your shopping cart sooner than later!
Maryrose found that there were so many preserved items she needed to restock this month. "Peaches were first on her list. They have been eating the delicious peaches we had canned from Orchard Hill as their late night snack. They are so good over yogurt."

Speaking of preserves, Tim Barrie of Barrie's Asparagus has some new items and is offering 10% off for this pickup!

Here are a few specials:
  • 10% off select preserves from Barrie's Asparagus
  • Nutty Bakers is offering all 5" pies at $2.75 Regularly ($3.25)
Almost all of the veggies we are eating have been stored for us by our wonderful farmers. This means there are limited quantities of everything available. The warmer weather this winter is also affecting the supplies. If there is something you are interested in be sure to order it this month as we can not guarantee it will be available in March.

As the days get longer (yay!) we will be able to offer greens like arugula and spinach again in limited supply. Since greens are so limited we have Salad Greens and herbs in recyclable clamshells from Pfennings.

And some info about the 2012 Sustainability Workshops from Little City Farm!
We are pleased to announce that our list of Sustainability Workshops for 2012 is now officially posted. Topics include permaculture, organic gardening, cheesemaking, soap making, wild fermentation, preserving, beekeeping, and practical herbalism! Please go to The Little City Farm website for a complete listing of topics, as well as costs and registration details.

This is now the 6th year that we have facilitated sustainability/urban homesteading workshops at Little City Farm. It's hard to believe that during this time we have hosted more than 75 workshops and hundreds upon hundreds of participants! It is so encouraging to see such interest locally in re-skilling ourselves, and building a resilient sustainable community. We hope you will find a topic (or more) that look interesting, and you will choose to join us - we look forward to sharing our space and these topics with you again this year.

Enjoy this crazy weather!
Maryrose and Rachael
