"From Seed to Seed" feature in FOCOWOJO

We have been feeling the love since the FOCOWOJO Mother Earth issue came out with the "From Seed to Seed" feature on us! Thanks to all who have passed on that they "saw us in that magazine" since it hit the stands in mid April. We appreciate it! 

New on the scene,  FOCOWOJO, short for Forsyth County Women's Journal, focused their April/May issue on the environment, buying in to local food, and sustainable building with a focus on how we can find all that we are looking for right here in our county. The publisher Jenille Hess and Editorial Manager Lechelle Vernon-Yates really did their due diligence in finding the info and stories for our Forsyth "farm to fork" scene, particularly in spotlighting "suprema" women farmers Laura Frazier of Rail Fence Farm and Natalie Sevin of Sugar Creek Farm. And special thanks to the photographer Hooman Bahrani for sending the above photos and more from the shoot.

The issue will be on newsstands at your neighborhood grocery store for a few more days but also online via their Facebook page

Back at the Cobblestone Farmers Market

Starting this Tuesday, beta verde will be at the Cobblestone Farmers Market (formerly known as the Krankies Farmers Market) on Tuesdays from 10am-1pm. We will be there every OTHER week and hope to keep you guessing with new products as the season unfolds.

Starting this Tuesday, we are there every other week but for efficiency's sake, here is a list of the dates: May 17th, May 31st, June 14th, June 28th, July 12th, July 26th, August 9th, August 23rd, September 6th, September 20th, October 4th, October 18th... This is also available on our "Products and Events" page.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the market and joining our fellow market vendors for another great season! 

Right now, we are knee deep in strawberries so expect Strawberry Intensified with balsamic and Strawberry Intensified with lemon balm this week and while our supply holds. We are distinguishing our jams not only by ingredients and herbs but by farm. We feel so fortunate to be collaborating with The Children's Home and Rail Fence Farm, along with using beta verde's own strawberries. All are incredible, fresh as can be, pesticide-free and bursting with flavor. Woohoo!
