Market Days

Market Days!


That's me (Mr. Coyote), the booth, and some folks having a great time in Canyon, TX

Smiling Coyote Farm, along with Honey's Farm Fresh, is proud and excited to serve you at the Farmers Market Under the Stars this Tuesday evening from 7 pm - 9 pm as well as on Saturday from 8 am - Noon for the weekly morning Canyon Farmers Market.



Honey's brings their (always) farm fresh chicken and duck eggs. And, speaking of duck eggs, if you haven't seen this, take a look at what we did with a couple of duck eggs and some fresh herbs in our "Herby Morning Potato Frittata."



Smiling Coyote uses no chemical pesticides at all. Ever. We've been growing naturally in this location since 1983. We started our first garden at the ripe old age of 11 and sold our first lot of organic produce to a distributor in Ft. Worth, TX in 1973. We've been at it ever since and you can taste the difference.

We have fresh and flavorful herbs--Basil, marjoram, thyme, oregano, chive, parsley, and garlic chive--to make everything you do taste better. Check that "Herby Morning Potato" thing for ideas about using fresh herbs.

Herbs and native ornamentals
Peppers and Chilies: We got 'em. We have several different varieties including jalapeno and cayenne with tabasco peppers just about ready. We may have some of those tabasco peppers Tuesday evening and for sure by Saturday. They look, taste, and grow a lot like a chile pequin so if you're a pequin fan, you'll want to give these a try.

Tomatoes (several varieties) and,maybe, some fresh, young, tender yellow crookneck squash as well could be on the table Tuesday evening. Maybe more, the garden is looking fine right now.

Our Coyote teas are wonderful hot or iced and if you haven't tried them both, you should. Coyote teas, like our herb/spice blends, are hand-crafted fresh every week right here on the farm from the freshest ingredients. These teas are what fresh tastes like.

"Occasional Mention" is a black tea, orange zest, and warm spice blend--it's Dyna's favorite. My favorite is the "Kick It Back" herbal blend of chamomile, spearmint, and peppermint. We have both single serving tea bags (boxed) as well as larger bags for iced tea or making a full pot.



We meticulously hand craft spice and herb blends weekly in small batches using fresh, whole ingredients--some grown right here on the Farm--for maximum shelf life, freshness, and flavor. We'll have them for you Tuesday evening and Saturday morning at the market. In these blends there is no added salt, sugar, MSG, preservatives, or fillers either so it’s all natural and highly concentrated—a good value. Learn more about what herb/spice blends we offer and how they taste.



For those who use our spice blends now, please let us know what you think either in the comments below or on the Smiling Coyote Farm Facebook page. If there's something you'd like to see us offer, let us know about that, too.

Thanks, and a big coyote smile to you!

Keeping and Storing: Herbs and Spices

We put up a new page covering proper storage of spices, herbs, and blends. It's here: http://www.smilingcoyotefarm.com/p/spice-storage.html

Enjoy!


We stand with Alice Waters and Jacques Pépin.

Short and to the point: It's not really the "fast food mentality" we're celebrating by gardening, farming, and participating in farmers markets. We're not a part of the culture where standards, and expectations, are consistently lowered in a flight to rock bottom. We believe cooking isn't a competition--isn't confrontational and neither is learning about food, its production, or preparation. ~ Smiling Coyote Farm.

Spring Prep

Yes, it's February: Cold, dry, February. But, things are stirring at Smiling Coyote Farm.

Seeds are starting in flats, prep for planting is underway, planning is ongoing, and the Spring garden season is just around the corner. Our first Farmers Market meeting is the end of the month. It's time to get moving.

We'll be publishing our plant list soon. If you have a suggestion or request, let us know so we can get it in the ground for you.
