Greetings from Bluebird Farm,
See you at the Morganton and Conover Farmers’ Markets tomorrow (Saturday) until noon.

Attention! Attention! We have baskets of freshly harvested yummy arugula!  I think it is time for arugula, watermelon chunks, chopped red peppers, and a drizzle of sweet white balsamic vinegar...Cheers to green salads once again!

Sweet Red Peppers, 
These peppers want to be served with our Sweet Italian sausage, basil, fresh cherry tomatoes, and a nice pasta or polenta!

Pastured Pork- We have a good supply of pastured pork…
Mild Country Sausage, Hot Country Sausage, Sweet Italian Sausage, Bratwurst Sausage, Ground Pork, Thick Pork Chops, Spare Ribs, fresh bacon(uncured.)
Limited supply of boneless ham roasts and shoulder roasts.

This week’s garden harvest
Arugula- fresh greens again
Cherry tomatoes- little gems of sunshine. Intense flavors.  Yellow, red, gold, black-purple tomatoes.
Basil! Time to make pesto. The clock towards the frost is ticking. Only 5 more weekends til a frost is likely. I  like to freeze my pesto in pint freezer bags.  You can also freeze it in ice cube trays and then store in a freezer bag. Oh, the basil. The aroma of summer! 
Bell Peppers, Sweet Bell and Italian Frying Peppers- no synthetic chemicals.  Red and ripe! So sweet and ripe. Amazing raw or cooked.
Jalapenos and Hungarian Hot Peppers- Spice it up.

Hot Jalapeno pepper time!

Pastured Chicken- Free range on grass pastures, fed certified organic grains. Flavorful and tender.
-Packs of 2 leg quarters and 2 wings
-We won’t have more whole chickens until our next flock is ready on October 10th. Stock up at in October; it will be the last flock of the year, and we won’t have any of our chicken in our freezer this winter.  We will take orders for chickens in mid September. (next week)
Pastured Free Range Eggs- The hens will soon be back in the bottomland pasture with their sheep friends and guard dog.  The littlest piggys will have to say goodbye for now to their old friends the hens.
All our animals are fed certified organic grains.

Sweet Italian Basil- It's time to make pesto.
