Next Break it Down workshop to focus on dismantling goat

BEREA — The Berea Farmers Market has moved inside for the winter!

Find your favorite vendors in the pavilion of the Berea College Goldthwait Agriculture Building, 230 N. Main St., 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays.

Berea College Farm products also are available at the Berea College Bookstore on the College Square, 108 Main St., near Boone Tavern.

Last week was a really fun week at the Farm Store. Not only did we get to celebrate our first Valentine’s Day with fruit-filled chocolates made with the farm’s very own berries, but we spent a busy Thursday adding over 70 new Kentucky Proud  products to our shelves!

With all of these new arrivals and our mission of connecting farms to forks, it seems appropriate to add a featured farm or product to each column so you can get to know a little bit more about the people you support with every dollar you spend.

We’ll leave you in suspense for a moment on this week’s feature to first bring you some other exciting news.

In the second installment of our Break it Down series, our newest faculty member, Dr. Quinn Baptiste, will demonstrate how to dismantle a goat for your ultimate eating enjoyment.

Dr. Baptiste hails from Trinidad and Tobago and is an assistant professor of animal science. The demonstration is limited to 10 and will be conducted Saturday, March 15, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Registration is $35. Participants will have the first opportunity to purchase the meat at the demonstration’s conclusion.

There’s even been a rumor circulating that his wife will be making her special goat curry for folks to taste during the break. We’ll announce more details as the event comes closer, but feel free to call or stop by the store during business hours to reserve your spot now!

As mentioned earlier, we’ll be spotlighting a farm or product in each newsletter and this week, we’re going to shine that light on our friends at Carriage House Farm in the Miami River Valley of North Bend, Ohio.

Carriage House Farm ( established in 1855, the same year Berea was founded, and has been worked by six generations of family. They specialize in chemical-free produce and bee products and are expanding into non-GMO corn, dried beans and small grains/flours such as wheat, buckwheat, and rye.

Look for Carriage House Farm honey this week in the Farm Store and keep an eye out for honey cameos in many of our baked goods.

Last, but not least, despite the seemingly endless supply of snow we’ve been getting this winter, the horticultural arm of Berea College Farm has managed to coerce some living greens from out of the ground, and we’ve been able to stock a limited supply of tender peas shoots, sweet spinach and succulent miner’s lettuce. If you’ve not tried this triumvirate of tastiness, you’ve been missing out.

There really is nothing finer than the flavors of spring in the dead of winter. As the days get longer and warmer, we’ll be seeing more and more of these delicious treats. But in the meantime, get these special gems while you can!

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
