We are excited to welcome Mike’s Pet Meats to our Market family. There is much to tell so I’ll start by sharing that your manager met Mike through a breeder of high quality German Shepherds. And if you are familiar with this person no doubt you’re grinning.

Mike’s Pet Meats come frozen, and more importantly for the nutrition of pets, are raw. We will list two different ground meat products: a 30 lb unit that is 100% beef muscle and a 10 lb tube (like a hamburger chub) that is 75% muscle and 25% organ meat (a heart/liver/tripe combo). Based on our experience, pets LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the organ meat blend. Both products come with safe handling instructions and can be thawed to divide, blend with other ingredients or cooked for your pet. Please note that while these are high quality meats, they are NOT prepared or intended for human consumption.

Dog food

We are aware there is a lot of information, misinformation and controversy about feeding pets raw meat. Some vets say “no”, others say “go for it”, and M@D’s official position is “do your own research to decide for yourself”. To that end here are a few websites that may help:

Grier Acres: Harry and Jeannie have been busy here lately.  We planted 4 varieties of onions a few weeks ago.  Our garlic is coming back from last year as well.  We have an asparagus plant that we are hoping to get finally get some fruit off this year.  We also have finally planted our bean and pea seeds as well as some collards.  Jeannie has some mustards and kale growing in the raised beds as well as some turnips.  These are on our house side of the property.  We are late but seeding some tomatoes, peppers, melons, squash, zucchini, and herbs.  With the cold weather coming this week maybe we were just in time!  Hope everyone has a blessed Easter.

Avalon Farms:

Here’s my favorite husband carrying the roll of floating row cover.

So far, 2021 is shaping up to be another “interesting” year. This Thursday, Friday and Saturday proved to be unexpectedly cold. With frost tender crops (tomatoes, eggplant and squashes) in the field we had to cover them up to protect them from frost. The weather forecast was for 35, which isn’t so bad, but we are located in a colder microclimate and usually get frost when the forecast is 35. 

We won’t be taking it off till Sunday morning when the threat is over. 

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible! `
