+Clarion River Organics at the Pittsburgh Farm Markets+
Hello Farm-Fresh Local Produce lovers!

The Sewickly Farmer's Market is now OPEN and we're excited.We've listed the market schedule at the end of this newsletter, so be sure to check out your closest seasonal market!

Also, be sure to come down and check out our new DAIRY STAND! All the Riverview and Pasture Maid dairy products are now located at a separate stand at the Public Market. We expanded into a second stall so that we can bring you MORE exceptional local farm-fresh cheese from MORE family farms, and so we could have more room for all the amazing fruits and vegetables we are growing this year. (see more in the highlight section!)

GOAT MILK, you say? We would like to start carrying goat milk at the dairy stand but we need at least 10 people to order - $7/half gallon - $4/quart - Place your order in the online store or email

..ONLINE STORE? Yes! We've opened the online store, a new and exciting way to purchase the variety of goods that our farmers are producing. You can place an order for meat, produce, dairy products, grains and more, and then pick up your goods at the Public Market on Saturday that week.

Also, MORE GRAINS are on the way! Not this weekend but next weekend we will have in freshly milled local organic grains, Corn, Wheat, and Spelt:
Corn meal, polenta, puffed corn, spelt berries, spelt flour, honey coated puffed spelt, golden spelt flour, bran, and whole wheat flour

:: HIGHLIGHT: More Cheese! ::

We have expanded at the Pittsburgh Public Market!

In an effort to be loyal to more local family farms, we're bringing in DELICIOUS cow & goat cheese from Western PA dairies -- most of which are available to sample at the stand, just ask if you don't see it out!
The cheese stand is called Family Farms Creamery because it will carry all things dairy from family farms that process their own milk that they are producing.
There is some amazing cheese from Clover Creek Cheese Cellars and fun 100% grass-fed cheeses from Milky Way Meadows located near Meadville.

Keep up to date with Family Farms Creamery at
"Long Live the Micro-Diary...Long Live the Family Farm!"
