A Message from Maryrose:

Wow it has been a long time since we have had to clean up on a Friday night and turn around and get ready for next week. Are you as excited as we are about this?

Come for our Summer Season Openers
We have decided to host a Season Opening Event in Waterloo on June 22nd and in Breslau on July 6th. There will be several farmers and suppliers in attendance and many samples for everyone to try. This is our 4th summer season running at the First United Church. I can't believe I have had the privilege to become a part of such amazing concept that brings the taste of the season to you all year long.

This is the best week to buy Strawberries!!
It was so wonderful to see and smell all of those beautiful strawberries piled high. We had over 80 flats of strawberries picked for us this week. Thanks to Paul Bowman & Family, James & Elvina Bauman and The Horst family for growing such delicious gems.

Next week will likely be our last pick up for Strawberries and Asparagus as we will not be open on June 29th. If you plan to put some away for the winter months this would be the time to do it. Paul anticipates being able to pick at least 100 flats this Friday. We may have some strawberries in July but not in bulk quantities.

Casa Salsa Empanadas and Salsas!
Because you ask for it, we are alway looking for new prepared foods to offer. Emi from Casa Salsa was out at First United Church this past Friday sampling his salsas and a few other items. Casa Salsa is located in the Kitchener Market. Bailey's will be offering their empanadas which are not on the menu at the restaurant. They come in beef, chicken and veggie.

Local Milk! Finally!
One of the requests we have not been able to fulfill due to fridge space was Local Milk. On almost the same day we were contacted by Eby Manor about their newly available milk from a herd near St Jacob's, the church purchased a new fridge which means we have more space to offer refrigerated items. We placed our first order for Eby Manor Golden Guernsey 2% milk and you will find it in the 'dairy' section of the order form. It is pasteurized and fortified with vitamins A and D as required by law before being poured into 1 L classic glass bottles. They plan to offer Whole Milk and 10% cream in the future. Included in the price you see on the order form is a $2 bottle deposit. We will refund you upon return of the bottles from Eby Manor.

New or returning Items to the offering list.
  • Blush Twist from Cider Keg has finally arrived and is so yummy. It is a blend of sparkling apple cider with Concord grapes and Niagara Grapes. We may have to make another run out to Vittoria to pick up a few more cases!
  • Lester & Irene are back with their heads of lettuce. Please keep in mind lettuce will not be available as we get into the heat of summer. Enjoy it now.
  • Lena Horst is expanding her baking selection she will have strawberry rhubarb pie, bruschetta bread and garlic bread. These breads are loaves of bread seasoned with bruschetta or garlic. They would be awesome toasted with cheese! Maybe you'll need ice cream for the pie!
Farm Tour!
Sharon Voskamp has graciously offered her services to drive the countryside and pick up the wonderful produce grown by our old order Mennonite farmers each Friday in Wendell's absence. She has invited you to come with her! She said it would be great to have one person with her each Friday. If you would like to join Sharon you get to see the farms, meet some of the farmers and get a better understanding of where our food comes from. If you are interested in doing so please let us know. You would have to be at the church by 8.45 am on pickup day and would be back anywhere from 1 to 2:30 pm. Please bring snacks, a drink, and anything you may need for a working drive through the country.

Order quickly, this order period is very short!

Enjoying the Strawberries,

Maryrose and Rachael
