This section of the website pays tribute to local producers of organic, fresh, pure, natural products. The Local Goodness tent will have a table displaying these products.
Chicken of the Woods Permaculture Farm
Chicken of the Woods makes amazing teas, produced right here in MoCo. You can choose from Synergy Chai (pictured below), Serenity, or Interlude teas. Try all three with the sampler pack. Chicken of the Woods also sells Ease, a balm made with hemp.
A Note on the Kashrus of Tea
According to the Star-K website, herbal teas without additives are Kosher. “Generally made from dried herbs, leaves, and roots, they are intrinsically kosher and do not need to be certified.”
In line with the market self-supe policy, we also hope to visit Chicken of the Woods and document here the production process of the tea.
Migrash Farm sells flour.
The Migrash Farm mission dovetails nicely with Farmers Market .pizza. As they put it on their Farm page, “[w]e never knowingly apply or use any input that is environmentally or systemically toxic to humans, livestock, and/or fish and wildlife including non-target insects, microbes, and plants.” They also want to bring down costs through cooperative purchasing. The following is copied from their home page:

From Our Farm To Your Table
Committed to a Sustainable Regional Grain Economy
Our grains are grown locally and organically in the Chesapeake Bay region on family farms including our very own. From these smaller lots, varietal grains are stoneground at low temperatures and packed by hand on our farm to preserve the nutrition, tastes, and artisinal culture that nature intended.
Invested in Direct Relationships with our Customers
We take pride in getting to know those who eat our grains and the stories behind how and why they are eating them. By focusing our efforts on direct markets, we have the opportunity to interact with our customers on a regular basis and thus have a chance to get a little better acquainted with them and their tables.
Building a Community of Flour (and More)
Migrash Farm is looking to build a network of like-minded folks to get behind community purchasing power. We envision a model similar to a vegetable CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) where, on a regular basis, a group of folks can get together their resources and reduce their individual costs through bulk purchasing and delivery. We initially look to start with fresh local bread flours, but hope to grow into other cereals and legumes as well….
