New and Noteworthy
Peach Creek Farm Berkshire Pork
By Kate Thornberry, Fri., June 23, 2006
The German sausage at $5.25 a pound is flavorful and satisfying, putting even my beloved Elgin sausage to shame. Breakfast links, perfectly seasoned, are $5.25 a pound, and Italian sausage, both sweet and hot, sells for $5 a pound. Sliced ham, suitable for sandwiches or for "frizzling" in the breakfast skillet, sells for $6 a pound, and country style bacon sells for $5.
Virtually any other cut of pork is available, from spare ribs and chops to ground pork and ham hocks. Entire smoked hams are available by request, as are pork loin roasts. Go to Peach Creek's Web site: www.peachcreekfarm.us. For perfect convenience, you can order what you want and just go by the Farmers' Market and pick up your order, with no anxiety about finding the small operation being sold out. You can find James and Rose Page, the hardworking owners/farmhands of Peach Creek at the Austin Farmers' Market (Fourth and Guadalupe) on Saturdays, 9am to 1pm; or at the Plaza Saltillo Farmers' Market (Fifth and Comal) on Wednesday evenings, 4pm to 6:30pm.
