Probasco Urban Farm

Email: probascomushrooms@gmail.com
Website: facebook.com/probascofarm
Vendor Since: 2017

Our Practices:

All PUF’s products are raised on high quality materials with no pesticide application.  To do this, we rotate production stock in and out of our indoor grow room on a rapid cycle over three weeks.

All of our mushrooms are grown on fresh sawdust, straw, bran, and minerals, with home-produced starter or “inoculum.” By contrast, soil-based production is really attractive to critters, and that’s why the mushroom industry uses a lot of pesticides. We do not raise crimini or portobello, in order to stay true to this promise!

The varieties we raise – with the exception of SHIITAKE – are all indigenious native varieties. This means you could go for a walk in September or October, and you may even see a lion’s mane, a cluster of oysters, or a bouquet of enoki or even maitake mushrooms growing, from a tree, in the wild. Ours are grown indoors and can be seen for only about four days from emergence until harvest.

Products We Sell:

Fresh mushrooms:

  • Oyster, Lion’s Mane, Enoki – indoor grown
  • Wine Caps, August – October, outdoor grown
  • Maitake, Shiitake, August – October, indoor grown

Carly’s Clayworks

Website: Carly’s Clayworks
Vendor Since: 2016

About Me: 
I am a ceramicist, living, working, and teaching in Cincinnati.  Always drawn to clay, I attended UC’s DAAP Program to study ceramics and earn my BFA in 2011.  In 2012 I began teaching pottery and handbuilding classes at Pleasant Ridge Rec Center and Clifton Rec Center.  2016 saw the wonderful addition of Covington’s Baker Hunt Cultural Arts Center to my pottery teaching circuit, and I am so glad to be a part of 3 different art communities.  In between classes, I work on my own pieces at my small home studio.  Each piece is lovingly handthrown on a pottery wheel, then decorated and finished in timing with clay’s natural drying process. After an 18-24 hour initial firing, each piece is dipped or painted with homemade glazes, and fired one more time to turn them into your favorite morning coffee cup.   My pieces are largely inspired by the patterns and repetitions of the micro and  macro natural world.  I hope you too will feel a bit more grounded and connected to this big world we live in,  as you use my wares.  See you at the Market!

Products We Sell:
I make ceramic wares; mostly functional pottery, like mugs, bowls, etc.

Owl Creek Bison

1635 Owl Creek Rd
Frankfort, OH 45628
Email: owlcreekbison@gmail.com
Website: www.owlcreekbison.com
Vendor Since: 2015

About Us:
Bison are majestic herd animals entrenched in nineteenth-century American history. Natives to this land thrived and relied upon bison (or buffalo) meat and utilized the whole animal making products from buffalo hide, bones, horns, and fur. Hunted almost to extinction in the late 1800s, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to appreciate its sweet and tender meat today.

It wasn’t until their recent popularization as the healthiest of red meats that most people were even aware of availability of bison meat.  Although these animals once grazed on lush grass and vegetation of the plains and mountainsides, many modern producers are opting for a grain-based diet or finishing the animals on grain before processing. But at Owl Creek Bison, our bison are grass fed and grass finished which takes more pasture and more time.  Our meat is also dry aged in a temperature and humidity controlled locker (7-10 days) and then packaged.  This also takes more time and expense than ‘wet aging’ where an animal is harvested then processed into individual vacuum bags ASAP.  It is these additional processes that cost more and take more time but produce a better tasting meat. See for yourself. Stop by and see these majestic  animals roaming the hillsides of southern Ohio.

Products We Sell:
Bison meat, vegetable (garlic, cucumbers, chard), fruit, eggs, and chicken (whole and parts)

Our Practices:
The garden is chemical free but not certified organic.  We use our own chicken manure from laying hens and meat birds. Grass fed and finished bison.

Inland Shrimp Company

Email: cincyshrimp@yahoo.com
Website: www.inlandshrimp.com
Vendor Since: 2016

About Us:
Inland Shrimp Company was started as an idea almost 12 years ago while Gary was selling farms and farmland and witnessed firsthand the external factors that farmers were up against with crop farmers getting too much or too little water affecting their harvest. The pig and cattle farmers were practically “married” to their herds and couldn’t leave them to even go on a vacation
and the huge strain of resources it took to get them big enough to go to market. Being a lifelong seafood lover the idea to raise shrimp was born. Except here in the Midwest there’s no saltwater, everything’s frozen and a few who raise freshwater prawns outdoors. With all of the USA having a temperate climate this only allowed for a “one season harvest “almost as a hobby farmer. With outdoor production you use a lot of water , worry about drought, water quality, predation (even wild animals and birds love shrimp too) and you still only get one harvest down in the Southern States. So there’s definitely not enough production capacity and climate to supply people, restaurants and grocery stores. So the idea for an indoor shrimp farm was born. This way we
could control the environment and all of the external factors affecting production and offer year round shrimp to the masses.

Our Practices:
Inland Shrimp Company will naturally raise saltwater shrimp without the use of steroids, hormone, and antibiotics.  Currently there is no USDA organic certification for seafood but there will be no chemicals used in the raising of our shrimp.  On the CSF side, all seafood will be traceable back to the fisherman that caught it, the gear it was caught with, and when and what port it was landed at.  We believe in responsibly harvested seafood and will not sell it if we can’t trace back to the source.
