News’s from Grower’s and Crafters:

Bean Man: Christmas and the holidays are just around the corner. We have our fresh beans and flours for you along with our gift boxes containing 4 different samplings of our products. If you would like to purchase the boxes and have them shipped to a friend or loved one for Christmas, please select the shipping option and provide the name and address of the recipient along with a note for the gift card that comes with it. You can do this by email or in the comment section of your order. Orders received by Sunday night will arrive by Christmas and the products will all be in plastic bags to protect them from the weather. Thank you!

Body & Soul Teas: Greetings from Body & Soul Teas! I have added several new teas to the product line and am working on additional products for 2022. The newest blends are AWE-tumn, a blend of fragrant, warming herbs that are perfect for sipping during the cooler months. VERY MERRY BERRY combines blueberry, elderberry, and hibiscus with warming spices for a delicious, spiced tea that would also be tasty combined with apple cider. I have also added a few mesh strainers and cotton tea bags. Both are reusable and easy to use…..Among the customer favorites is ROOTED. The roots (dandelion, chicory, ginger, burdock) in this blend give the tea a chai like flavor. Delicious hot or cold, combined with your favorite creamer, it makes a flavorful latte. Shoo-Flu is a cold/flu blend containing elderberry, hibiscus and other herbs that support the body during a cold or flu. Because it is a supportive blend, it’s best to drink 3-4 cups daily along with plenty of water, nourishing foods and rest!…..As always, check with your healthcare provider before consuming or using any products, herbal or otherwise, especially if you are using prescription medication, over-the-counter medications or are pregnant, trying to become pregnant! or nursing.

Oakview Farm: we have a few bags of mustard, rape and radish microgreens on the Market this week. We plan on having more varieties of microgreens throughout the Winter until our lettuces and radishes are ready to harvest in January. We also have our jams/preserves which are a great complement to a charcuterie board for holiday get-togethers! Our jams include – Rum Raisin, Green Tomato Marmalade, Apple Butter, and Cranberry Port. Try mixing goat cheese with some honey and Greek yogurt, then put a small amount on a slice of toasted baguette, along with a small amount of one of our jams as a topping. (Smoked salmon pairs well with the Green Tomato Marmalade by the way). So delicious! * Everyone here at Oakview Farm wishes all of you a very happy holiday season!
