Profile: Raycin Farms

At the market and need some dinner? Look no further than the Raycin Farms booth. Raycin Farms is owned by Raymond and Cindy West of White River Junction. Each week, Cindy dishes up some of the best pulled pork sandwiches and sausage subs in town all made with local, Raycin Farms meat. You can take home frozen meat as well as Cindy brings a cooler full of pastured pork and grass-fed beef to each market, but stop by early. Cindy sold out of her ground beef last week!

For dessert try one of her famous buttermilk doughnuts, whoopie pies, or specialty cookies (I love the chocolate chip, oatmeal, coconut, and corn flake cookies!). The pumpkin apple bread is not to be missed--regular customers return again and again for a slice.

Visit the Raycin Farms booth for local sandwiches, baked goods, freezer meat or to inquire about purchasing a larger cut for your freezer or next party. Cindy will be at the Hartland Farmers' Market each week.

Profile: Clay Hill Corners

Clay Hill Corners is a blueberry and vegetable farm owned by Carol Stedman and Marty Banak in Hartland, VT. This seven-acre farm has a high tunnel, a greenhouse, a small hoop house and many outdoor garden beds. A flock of Indian Runner ducks helps keep the insects at bay as Clay Hill Corners uses organic practices only.

Carol is famous for her spicy greens, a special mix of salad greens that includes mild lettuce and spicier greens such as arugula and mustard. In addition, Carol bakes homemade quiches using ingredients from her farm and other local ingredients from her friends and neighbors. Look for these specialties and other treats such as seasonal jams, pickles, honey, hummus, and granola at the Clay Hill Corners booth each Friday or visit the farm stand at 390 Clay Hill Road in Hartland.

To learn more about Clay Hill Corners and their CSA, stop by their booth at the market or visit their website.
