Get your Holiday Meats from Rohrer's

Greetings from the farm. This is the weekend for the Clear Spring Historical Society open house. Plumb Grove is an 1831 farm house that will be decorated as if it were still the 19th century. The house is also filled with period furniture, most of which is from the Clear Spring area. Your favorite meat man will be stationed by the door to greet you. There will be good food and drink available and a $5 donation is requested. Plumb Grove will be open from 2-11 PM. The town garden club will also have several other houses open for tour. Most of the town churches will be open with music and there is also a chicken and waffle supper scheduled. The Plumb Grove decorations alone make the trip worth while. Plumb Grove is located at the intersection of North Martin Street and Broadfording Road in Clear Spring, MD.

I will be in Frederick this week. You can find me at the Dutch Plant farm from 10 AM until 12:30 PM. Pork will include tenderloin, pork chops, spare and country style ribs, boneless shoulders, ground pork, and bacon. Polish sausage will be available for the first time this year as well as country, hot Italian, mild Italian, sage, applewurst, maple, and bratwurst. Beef will include ribeye, strip, porterhouse, T-bone, sirloin, flank, and skirt steaks; eye round, boneless chuck, and sirloin tip roasts; stew cubes, and ground beef. Lamb will include loin, arm, and sirloin chops; racks, shanks, and ground lamb. There will also be whole, cutup, and stewing chickens. I will also have eggs, jellies, and cheese with all of the goat cheeses being restocked this week.

Christmas is just around the corner and my next Frederick visit will be Christmas Eve morning. That means it is time to place Christmas orders. Some possibilities are Maple Lawn Farm turkeys, smoked, fresh, or country cured hams; pork crown roast, pork tenderloin, boneless prime rib, standing rib roast, beef tenderloin, leg, and rack of lamb. If your preferred cut is not listed, ask about it's availability. My sisters can also provide your sweets. Cakes, cheesecakes, pies, cookies, tea breads, and peanut brittle are some of the possibilities.

The precipitation should be gone but cold temperatures will be back by Saturday. Stop on by and see my new market truck, which means I'm in the meat business at least 5 more years. Eat fresh, be well, and I will see you at the market.
