Organic food continues at Pepper Place

Thanks to one of our readers for the heads up. Anyone interested in organic and locally raised meat and produce will be happy to know that Owls Hollow Farm will continue at Pepper Place in the parking lot through the winter – if they have enough participation to make it worth the drive. They’ll have hydroponic lettuces and other vegetables, and will also have local organic pork every other week (and soon, grass fed beef!). They’re asking people interested to sign up for their mailing list on the site and to fill out the account info.

They’re hopefully going to be able to have great stuff through the winter! After the jump, find the info about this weekend’s options (via email):
