Tasty & Healthy - September 28, 2011

Greetings from Beasley Farm!

We hope you have been enjoying our blog. My dad recently asked what a blog was, and how did the name come about. Here is the short-and-sweet answer to his questions.

We always "shorten" titles and names of things, into acronyms or nicknames, right? It's the same thing for the on-line crowd. Blog is a shortened "nickname" for WEB LOG. It's a log (or journal) which is on-line (on the web). Shortened from WEB LOG to WEBLOG and finally to today's name "Blog".

There are tabs at the top of our blog, just under our name. One is "How To Use This Blog". In it are directions for how to use the three different SEARCH features, and other functions.

Several recipes have been loaded this week. Recipes will be added randomly during the week. To be notified about each blog update, just click on one of the e-mail notification options on the right of the blog, or click on "Follow" if you already use Goggle's Follow options. 

Recipe Posts may be viewed by scrolling down, and even clicking on "older posts" to view more. Another way of finding items of interest is to scroll down the blog page, looking in the right column, until LABELS (which are like a "table of contents") becomes visible. The Labels are alphabetical. When they are clicked, recipes will pop up automatically. Some items are "cross-referenced." Our sincerest hope is that you will find our Blog enjoyably beneficial.

On to the normal stuff now. 

Greetings from Beasley Farm

The Hernando County Farmers Market has been welcomed by Sears on the corner of Mariner Blvd and Hwy 50! This is a marvelous place for our open air market, and for visiting local shops in the Coastal Way Shopping Plaza. The time is Saturdays between 10AM and 3PM. That's where we will be on Saturdays from now on. We wish to thank our loyal Downtown Brooksville customers for their years of support. Please come visit us, all other wonderful vendors at the Farmers Market, and the shops of Coastal Way Plaza. The Farmers Market will be located in front of Sears. We are grateful to Sears for welcoming us. Sears has long been a community supporter, as well as providing benefits to those who serve in the armed forces. As always, our Produce Barn is open daily until 6PM.
Thanks so much for your ongoing support.
We hope to continue bringing you quality fresh produce from the closest markets possible.

Have you been enjoying those delicious apples coming in from our eastern states? 
It might be good to special order a case or two, for canning, and enjoy them all year.

They are delicious in lunches, diced into jello and baked in pies,
cobblers, cakes and turnovers.

On December 1, 2010, we welcomed a surprise visit from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Periodically, the FLDACS tests farms to detect trace pesticides, hazardous pesticides, and other harmful residues. We are pleased to share our official results with you. After testing our farm for 175 different pesticides, the Chemical Residue Analysis Report confirmed the following: "in compliance with Florida Statute chapter 500,  no pesticides detected." It was an interesting experience and we are grateful that FLDACS protects the Florida consumer by periodically verifying the products grown in Florida. We're happy to share the information with you, too!
