Woke up to a bit of frost on the gardens this morning – what happened to ‘spring has sprung’? At least the willow is leafing out to provide proof that we’re not far off from warmer times. We also snuck a few chunky cuttings of asparagus last night for a snack while gardening – sure proof that the weather man is trying hard to tell the truth!
So, as you are getting your day underway and getting garden beds cleaned out and maybe your garage – have you planned dinner yet? If not, consider this – a beautiful drive to/through Penns Valley on Rt. 45. Take a right onto Fire Hall Road, your first right onto School Street, a left onto Long Street and a sharp right curve later you’ll be at the end of a rainbow at a place called Rising Spring Meat Company at 117 Cooper Street in Spring Mills! We’ve been open since June for custom animal processing, since July for USDA inspected processing and now we get to add to that list of great opening dates that our retail shop is now open too! We opened about three weeks ago and are thrilled with the reception we’ve received!
Our cases contain fresh meat (chicken, pork, beef): steaks, roasts, stuffed meat, chops, burger, etc. We also carry John F. Martin lunchmeats and cheeses, hot dogs and bacon. In addition to our meat selection, we are carrying local products as well. Our current supply includes local: honey, marinades, roasted coffee, potatoes, jams and bread. Our local meat special this week is pork cuts and pork sausage from grass fed-pigs from Woodward, PA. We can arrange for other meats and cuts either on demand or for a future pickup.
Take a ride along 45 or along the creek and you’ll find us – we’d love to see you today – open from 8am-4pm. Call if you have any questions – 422-8810!
With spring on our minds,
The staff at Rising Spring Meat Co.
