CARDINAL APIARIES – Pete Burt
FACSAP and its members are an important component of my customer base and I appreciate you. I'm in the midst of harvesting and bottling this year's honey, which has interesting floral notes. It will be ready soon for distribution into the Summer Shares, and for extra Honey Side Shares.
FOLK CITY SOAP – Heidi Lewis
I have prepared the soap bars made especially for FACSAP members, expected to be distributed in August.
There are 120 bars (in 4 different blends, approx. 30 bars each) plus I added 12 packages of my new zero-waste dish soap bar, in case members are interested in trying this for hand-washing dishes. These are very dense/hard soaps (not super-fatted like the bath bars) that come packaged with two small rounds of soap each—I use a dish sponge or brush with this soap to wash dishes as well as pots and pans, and make sure it dries between uses so it lasts longer.The Soap is included with the Full Season Shares and will be available for direct purchase for the 10-Week and 4-Week Short Season Shares.
KICKSHAWS GLUTEN-FREE BAKERY – Kathy Craddock
Kickshaw’s Gluten-Free Bakery will not offer Bread Shares this season. We are happy to fill any orders placed for folks for either home delivery or pickup at the farmers markets. Place your order via the website: www.kickshawsfxbg.com.
PÄLZER MÄDEL – Nicole Maynard
Prepared baked goods, jams and jellies made from organic ingredients.
Organic Pepper Jelly available this Thursday!
I harvested our first peppers last week from the organic seedlings purchased this Spring from Aline Fisher/Seedling Source. They look beautiful! I grew them in organic soil and used no pesticides on the plants. I only used organic vegetable fertilizer.
I have made them into Pepper Jelly and would like to offer it to FACSAP members. I used apple cider vinegar from Golden Acres Orchard, Peppers from the organic plants that I grew and organic cane sugar (for the canning of jellies, I cannot substitute the regular sugar), and Certo pectin. The Pepper Jelly will be a bit spicy, but I can tolerate it very well, so it's not too spicy.
36 jars at 4 ounces for $6 each (36 jars available)
18 jars at 8 ounces for $9 each (18 jars available)
Ingredients: organic white cane sugar, organic apple cider vinegar, organic peppers, organic habaneros and jalapenos, and pectin.
Delivery is this Thursday and can be offered until I run out. No deadline to order necessary.
I can accept cash (if provided in exact change), checks or credit cards (via Square).
Thank you so much for your support. Kind regards,
