This Week at the Market....

HALF MOON FARM


OUR 40TH YEAR!!

We are celebrating our 40th along with the market, having been here since 1980! So many wonderful experiences over the years with both customers and fellow vendors. We started out  bringing baked goods from Freedom Bakery. Then we branched out into our first love--growing organic vegetables. Preserves and chutneys always played a role as well as herb plants, baked goods and crafts. In 2015 we scaled back our farming efforts to grow for ourselves and produce ingredients for our products. We also scaled back to just one market--BELFAST! Still producing those well loved jams and chutneys as well as some new
recipes which are often inspired by customers.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all and see you at the market!



DICKEY HILL FARM

Happy New Year from Dickey Hill Farm! Spinach, kale and collards are looking lovely in the snow covered high tunnels. We’ll have a bounty of fresh greens at market this week along with our 100% grass fed beef. We also have a limited quantity of beef knuckle bones perfect for making your own rich and wholesome beef bone broth. Send us an email if you’d like to reserve some! 

We hope to harvest greens for another 2 or 3 weeks before we take our annual January break. 


APPLETON CREAMERY

Happy New year!
It’s time for Mac ’n Cheese!
We have all the cheese you need to create this most cherished comfort food. We have three kinds of hard aged cow cheese: havarti, gouda with cumin, and jack, as well as two soft-ripened cheeses: Camdenbert and Whitman. Use any or all of them to give your mac n’ cheese a special twist! Easy and delicious. All of these cheeses also pair well with eggs! Try in a winter quiche, or fancy omelet.



And don’t forget our Christmas Tree Drop-off Day, this coming Sunday, January 5, 11-3 at the farm. The goats would love to recycle your clean, no-spray, no-tinsel tree into future cheese. Can’t come by on Sunday? Drop your tree off anytime, but cookies and cocoa will be served on Sunday!

DIG DEEP FARM

Ringing in the New Year right! Smiles and  Overwintered kale and thyme; micro greens and pea shoots; storage veggies : beets, carrots, potatoes, onions, leeks, and daikon.

CHASE STREAM FARM

Retired U.S. Marines Anne & Tim Devin own Chase Stream Farm in Monroe and are thrilled to be bringing some of their offerings to the Belfast Market. Established in 2016, Chase Stream Farm is an organically certified fruit and vegetable enterprise, that also includes grass-fed lamb, meat birds, eggs, honey and maple syrup. They will be bringing farm fresh Korean products to the Belfast Market starting in January. Inspired by Anne's Korean heritage they make value-added products such as Kojang Hot sauce, various kimchis and kimbap - the Korean version of sushi! Prepare to walk away with an authentic taste of Korea!

MEADOWSWEET FARM

Meadowsweet Farm will be at our first market of the season this Friday. We're thrilled to be back!

We will have both beef and lamb in a wide selection of cuts, all of it 100% grass-fed, raised with love and care. While we choose not to undergo organic certification, we never use drugs on our animals nor synthetic products on our fields. We want to foster vitality rather than fight disease. Below is a photo taken last summer around the time of Solstice, a reminder of what these lengthening days will bring us in just a few short months. Stay warm, and see you all on Friday!
