Filbert Acres grows according to organic standards & specializes in quality pork, vegetables, strawberries, cut flowers & pumpkins. Our CSA shares feature our best, freshly harvested produce. Our USDA cuts of pork are special because our pigs have clean ground with fresh, delicious grass, locally sourced organic feed, and we finish the pigs on hazelnuts. We sell vacuum-wrapped cuts & often sell a hog or half hog.
We're open Saturdays 8 AM-2 PM, year-round
Filbert Acres Pork is back! We've tested the chops and tenderloin as well as a few sausages and we can vouch for the quality. We have revised our prices--our costs for feed and piglets have gone up. Many cuts cost more, but the roasts are less. We will get a new price sheet on the website soon. Please visit us tomorrow between 8:00 and 2:00 for the best selection of ground pork, sausages, chops, ribs, roasts, and more. Also will be posting details about saving money by doing a whole or half. Yes, we have bacon.
This week we have wonderful beets, carrots, scallions, salad mix, lettuce, and cabbage. We especially like roasted beets--there are lots of yummy recipes online, but we cut them into chips, toss them in olive oil, and roast them at 450 F.
We should be getting more pork in very soon. Watch our homepage or our facebook page as the 4th of July approaches. Open tomorrow (Saturday) from 8:00 to 2:00.
Also we have three full CSA shares available--pro-rated for the remaining 14 weeks -- $435 keeps you in delicious summer veggie bliss until October 2nd! Call or email for more information.
Not exactly Clark and Dawe, but in this video a Kohlrabi with an Australian accent explains the history and versatility of Kohlrabi and almost has a sense of humor:
Carrots, Radishes, Chard, Kale, Beets, Turnips, Scallions, Green Onions, Green Garlic, Garlic Scapes, Salad, Snow Peas, Sugar Snap Peas. If you aren't eating vegetables now, when are you going to??!?! Half a pound of chard in your smoothie--treat yourself to a self-righteous emotion. Sugar snap peas--we've seen them for $9/lb! And we think they're worth it, but come get ours tomorrow for $5/lb. Come try our beets--their beautifully smooth-skinned (don't bother peeling), and delicious. Stir frys, soups, veggie plates--enjoy the flavors of summer!

We are sold out of our inventory of pork--thank you all for making our pork enterprise worthwhile and participating in local agriculture. ("Eating is an agricultural act" WB) We are waiting for these hogs to grow, and they are not hesitating. Meanwhile we are taking deposits on halves ($100) and wholes ($200) and we are happy to answer more questions about that. Our next batch of pigs will be ready in late June or early July. Meanwhile we have more vegetables on Saturdays and we still have CSA shares available.
Today we are picking snow peas from our greenhouse--yum! Also have wonderful spinach, green garlic, leeks, and rhubarb. For pork, we're down to roasts--boneless leg and arm roasts. We are now taking deposits for whole/half hogs which will be ready for June. We also have full shares still available for our CSA and are taking first payments now for shares that begin June 5.
We have some beautiful radishes this week, along with our arugula and salad mix. We have a limited supply of spinich and some yummy kale. Don't forget pork! Open Saturday 8:00 - 2:00
