Love that pig!

Tom Hartman dropped by today with an issue of the New York State Conservationist magazine sent by regular market customer (and his cousin) Charles Hartman of Sarcoxie. It had a terrific article on eating locally which I certainly wouldn't have seen otherwise. It will be added to the market's lending library so look for it when we re-open for the regular season.

And what a great pig picture in the article! Important information, too - "Meat and dairy produced and purchased locally carry much less risk of disease, mostly due to smaller herd sizes."
