Market News!
By The Brook Tempeh
We specialize in non-soy, artisan blends of legumes, peas, lentils, and seeds to create a well-balanced and highly digestible plant protein with a fantastic texture and versatile flavor. 

By The Brook Tempeh is based in Saxapahaw, created by fermentation enthusiast Taylor Westbrook. Our North Star is to contribute to a sustainable future by reciprocating our local food systems, supporting the human microbiome, and elevating accessibility through relationships. Along the way, we’d also like to normalize plant-based proteins for all diets, including meat-eaters, by offering an appealing product in its own right, not merely as an alternative.

This week we'll be stocked up for your holiday needs. We will have plenty of signature tempeh blocks and a new featured block with Heron farms sea beans. Plan on a few burger options and two styles of ground tempeh for your vegan stuffing needs. Come check us out!

Fruchtenicht Honey
“Saving the bees” is not a good reason to start a beehive. The number of managed beehives in America is now quite stable and you cannot affect the population of feral hives. The idea of the honey bee as the canary in the coal mine is valid in that their high mortality (amendable by constant increase in managed hives) reflects a deteriorating environment for pollinators and by extension, humans. I can’t advocate against trying beekeeping because I have benefitted so much from working with these miraculous animals and trying to solve the many problems that arise from caring for them and trying to obtain honey crops. Speaking financially, like poetry, there aint no money in it. 

Keep bees if you must, but plant flowers. It’s good for them, it’s good for you. As a woman working in a nursery once told me, when I’m trying to sell some plant starts to a lady, and her fidgety, grumpy husband says, “You can’t eat flowers.” my response is: “flowers are food for the soul.” Also food for pollinators. Wish I were quick-minded enough to crush opposition that easily.

Unleashing the mow and spray contractor on your yard is the easy way out. The old English saying: “When the world wearies, turn to the garden” is real wisdom. If you haven’t, try a flower bed. London is trying to reduce the number of honey bees in the city on the grounds that they are too many and they are driving native pollinators to extinction. I have thoughts on that, to be continued, but you can’t go wrong planting flowers.

Organic sweet potatoes on our family farm?... Never before until this year!  And did Mario grow the most delicious crop of potatoes and in abundance in our certified organic, rich garden soils.
We will be offering gift boxes starting this week in 10 lb. and 20 lb. boxes... all $2 per lb.... in addition to potatoes by the lb. at the farm stand Saturday. A "curing" house was built this summer on the farm... so the potatoes could be "cooked or cured" to enhance their natural sweetness. Immediately after being dug, they were placed in this high humidity room at 85 degrees F for ten days to "cure." The skins thickened and they are sweeter and more shelf stable. Now, they should be kept around 50-55 degrees F until consumed. What a learning experience!

The organic strawberry plants have all been planted ... hopefully you will be able to enjoy berries next spring. Another item we will be offering for the Tuesday market... are THANKSGIVING wreaths.. made with boxwood from around the old farmhouse, red peppers, fragrant holly, and the magnificent blooms from the greenhouse yellow and orange marigolds.  Pre-order your wreath today .. such an attractive way to greet family and friends to your home for Thanksgiving. (see pic)

It is not too early to be thinking about ordering your beautiful greenery holiday wreaths... each meticulously made by Mario from greenery on the farm. We will have two sizes.. small ($45) or large ($65), starting with the first delivery on Tuesday, November 23rd. A sign-in sheet is at our check-out table on Saturday's... reserve yours now. 

Thank you for your continued support of our Century Family Farm!
