SUPPORT YOUR FARMERS!
AT THE MARKET
The 10% Campaign is a project of the Center For Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS). The campaign encourages you to spend 10% of your existing food dollars to support North Carolina food producers, businesses and communities. Why 10%? In North Carolina, we spend $35 billion on food every year. If we spend 10% of our food dollars on local product, we can infuse over $3.5 billion into the local economy. As avid supporters of the Durham Farmers' Market, you already know the many advantages to shopping locally. So, why join the campaign? It will re-affirm your commitment to shopping locally and it sends a strong message to policy makers about the importance of local foods! For more information

We have pork chops this Saturday! Our chops are well known at Lantern Restaurant and we have a following for home cooks at the market. Pork is from our whey fed pigs, the meat is tender and flavorful, and the chops come 2 per pack. Try some out while they're available!
We make several distinctive cheeses for you to choose from. This week we have Carolina Moon, Dairyland Farmers, a little Hickory Grove, Calvander, and Danziger. Calvander is based on an Asiago so that it has a piquant flavor to balance the rich flavor of our Jersey cows' milk. We have been making great salads at home with greens, arugula or escarole, radishes, green garlic, purple cabbage, and carrots, and grated Calvander. Experiment with flavors you like or add croutons and white beans for a full meal. The Calvander stands up to these robust flavors since it is a more aged cheese now 10 months old. Other cheeses range from fresh to creamy to slightly stinky. Come taste or ask us for suggestions on how to use them.
Spare Ribs are at a special price! $2.00 off per pack. Whether you grill or roast, marinate or use a dry rub, pick some up this weekend. All our pork is from the whey fed pigs at our farm. Sausages include the hams for more meatiness and we have Mild and Hot Breakfast,
Sage and Maple Breakfast links, Smoked Andouille, Mild and Hot Italian, Mexican Chorizo, and Bratwurst. Ground Pork and Ground Beef also available with ground beef. Jersey beef gets high ratings for tenderness and flavor. Pick some up for lasagna, tacos, or a great cheeseburger with our Hickory Grove.
We have a cooking demo at the Southern Season Cooking School this Sunday 3-6; see more online.
The Piedmont Farm Tour happens on April 28 and 29 from 12-6. This is one of the few times we are open to the public, so come see our farm and learn a little about cheesemaking and about our cows, pigs, and pastures. We'll have draft horses pulling wagons and an ox team that was born on our farm. Plan a picnic and bring a cooler.
Tickets are available online.
With calves being born, more milk, and busy markets we know spring is here! See you soon!

Botanist & Barrel
Botanist & Barrel crafts a variety of ciders, sours, and dry fruit wines. Using techniques from wine-making, brewing, and mixology they are constantly blurring the lines. They are Orange County's first winery and cidery, situated just north of Hillsborough, on Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm. They are also farmers raising dry farmed, no-spray, organic blueberries, for the best estate grown fruit on earth.
Founded in 2017 by brother and sister team and Orange County natives, Lyndon and Kether Smith focus on light-handed winemaking using old world methods with modern sensibilities. They lean towards whole fruit fermentation and make natural beverages with no additives or forced carbonation. They ferment to zero residual sugar and the ABV ranges from 7% to 15.5%. The ciders and wines are raw, wild, unfined, unfiltered, unpasteurized and you will find both still and sparkling ciders. They age in everything from tequila barrels, to sea salt bourbon barrels, to rum, to sauternes, to tawny port to bourbon maple syrup barrels.
Botanist & Barrel is hyper-local, sourcing ingredients whenever possible from within 200 miles of our farmhouse winery.
We will bring spinach, kale, mustard greens and turnips as well as fresh herbs. You can choose from coolers full of our USDA inspected Angus Beef and homemade soups. New this week is Sweet Potato, Black Bean and Kale Soup. Don't forget to pick up some cayenne peppers, flakes or powder.

is a combination of eco-friendly philosophy and cutting-edge, dynamic approach to plant-based cuisine. We draw inspiration from Latin-American traditions and the availability of locally grown produce to create imaginative concepts.
We offer delicious tamales made the artisan way: with love, care and attention to detail. To ensure we respect tradition, we source wholesome ingredients before steaming them in banana leaves, creating a flavorsome and aromatic product. We pride ourselves on taste and quality, and it won't go unnoticed. Every bite you take will give you a taste of the rich Colombian heritage our tamales are built on.
We will also have soups and pasteles de yuca: delicious roasted yuca pockets filled with red lentils, brown rice and spinach. A handheld food very similar to empanadas, only gluten-free and made with wholesome ingredients!
