Seafood Order: Vermillion Snapper from Beaufort, NC

This Week’s Seafood Order:
Vermillion Snapper from Beaufort, NC

This week’s fresh catch is Vermillion Snapper. From Sea to Table, “Vermillion Snapper, also known as a beeliner, is caught off of the U. S. coast from NC and around the Florida panhandle to Texas. Similar in appearance to their cousin the Red Snapper, Vermillion Snapper are a smaller fish with lean flesh, a mild, sweet flavor, and a medium-firm texture. They are most abundant in shallow water where they live near the seafloor, near the edge of continental shelves. Hook-and-line gear are primarily used to catch this species closer to shore. Any recipe that you’d use for Red Snapper can also be used for Vermillion snapper.”

Price: $25.90/ lb. (skin-on filets, approximately 1 lb.)

Snapper is a low-calorie, lean source of protein that is rich in selenium, vitamin A, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids.

Egg & Milk Share Sign Up

egg milkSign up for another round of our delicious egg and milk shares! Next week is the last week for the current share, so it’s time to sign up for our spring/summer subscription. By prepaying for 13 weeks, you receive a discount on your egg and milk purchases. The current 13 week share will be completed the week ending April 22, and the next installment will begin the week of April 24, with the first milk share pick up starting on Wednesday, April 26.

Why get your eggs and milk from Farmers & Artisans?

Our farm fresh brown eggs, sold by the dozen or half dozen, come from pastured hens that have not been treated with either hormones or antibiotics. Their feed is non-GMO.

The milk, in gallons and half gallons, and now quarts, is from a herd of Jersey cows that are pastured and not treated with any hormones or antibiotics. The whole milk is low-temp pasteurized and non-homogenized, preserving nutrition that is lost with ultra-pasteurization and homogenization. Note: The low-fat milk will continue to be homogenized.

Terms & Conditions: Milk is delivered on Wednesdays, therefore the milk and egg share pick up runs Wednesday to Tuesday of the following week. Please be advised that if you miss your pick up for your weekly milk share, you will forfeit your milk share for that week. Also please note that you must bring in your own egg carton weekly to fill. Please do not leave your used egg carton here. We legally cannot reuse old cartons. If you need a new carton, the price is $.35.
