CSA Fair & Green Drinks Today; Boalsburg Market & State College Potluck Tomorrow

Centre County Community Supported Agriculture Fair Today

There will be a number of local CSAs there, so stop by and find the right fit for you! Not sure you want to join a CSA? Please come anyway, and chat with the farmers to decide if it’s a good fit for you. Here’s a primer on some things to consider when choosing a CSA.

Green Drinks at Kelley’s in Boalsburg Tonight

Ed Perry’s reminder:

Where:  Kelley’s Steak and Seafood Restaurant located on Route 322 in Boalsburg

When: Monday, February 27 at 7:00 pm – 9:00pm

Why: We’ll have lots to discuss as Senator Inhofe is poised to introduce legislation to stop EPA from implementing regulations to reduce mercury emissions from power plants.  It will be interesting to see which of our federal representatives supports coal and oil-fired power plants continuing to spew mercury, arsenic, chromium, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, hydrogen fluoride, and hydrogen chloride into the atmosphere, along with fine particulate matter that gets into the lungs of our kids.

Boalsburg Winter Farmers Market Tomorrow (Tuesday Feb. 28) 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Jim Eisenstein of Jade Family Farm writes:

It may be late winter, but that doesn’t mean that the Boalsburg Farmers Market isn’t going strong.  We have been attracting many customers this winter  seeking our wonderful variety of local products from local vendors.  Here are a few of the items you can get next week.

Beiler Family Farm will be selling its eggs and raw milk among other things.  Never had raw milk?  It is worth a try. Byler’s Goat Dairy has raw goat milk, goat cheeses, and a new product, black walnuts.  From Eden View, you can select from salmon apple salad, beef and chicken meat pies, sprouted breads and bagels, and stuffed pitas. The Sustainable Kitchen has wonderful soup and preserves and Ardry Farms sells potatoes. Way Fruit Farm has both ciders and apples. Cow-a-Hen Farm will have fresh pork and an assortment of frozen pasture raised beef.

Stone Meadow Farm has grass-fed veal, delicious and humanely raised on pasture and their mother’s milk.  It  will also bring two new raw milk cheeses, a smoked jack and a smoked cheddar.  You can sample wines from our newest vendor, Bee Kind Winery.  And if you’re low on wild salmon steaks or salmon spread, Wild for Salmon still has plenty. If it’s carbs you’re looking for, try Gemelli’s breads and desserts and Fasta Pasta’s fresh pasta.

Steve Crawford will be providing music from 4:00 to 5:30.  All this and more.  The market is a good place to be.  Check us out on Tuesday at the Boalsburg Fire Hall from 2:00 to 6:00.
