Summer Twins at the Camas Prarie Ranch

Summer Twins at the Camas Prarie Ranch

Becky Weed, our beef rancher and supplier sends along this note:

Meant to send these along a month ago!  The picture was taken on the 27th of August when the Harlow Cattle Company twins were just over a week old and back with the summer calving herd.  The cow is a huge girl making her small, undoubtedly delivered early, twins appear even smaller than they are.  Both continue to do well, now at 6 weeks of age.

Eaglemount Cidery On Tap

September 10th, 2010

Eaglemount Cidery, just south of Port Townsend, has kegged a whole 1/2 barrel of its Ginger Cider for the Harbour Public House. On tap any day now, the cider is crafted in the English Dry Cider tradition – a welcome addition to the pub’s fourteen taps. “I’m really excited about it!” claims Angie Payne, the pub’s bar and dining room manager, “there are so few truly dry ciders that are from Washington.” Their cider is made from local apples both from their homestead and the surrounding area. While not certified organic, the ingredients are all farmed using organic methods.

Flavored with ginger root, it’s clean and crisp, and boasts  8% ABV. Eaglemount is situated on a 100 year old homestead, just off from Eaglemount Road, and is one of three Cideries that have recently opened their doors near Port Townsend. The others are Finn River Cidery and Wildfire Cidery.

This Little Piggy Went to Market!

September 4th, 2010

Farmer extraordinaire,  Brian MacWhorter, this time with his Protein Posse, has folks scrambling for his pork these days. The pub was able to snag two of his prime snorters this month and the resulting pork has  been getting rave reviews. Locally raised, right here on Bainbridge, chops and bellys, trotters and cheeks have been seen as special plates of late. But you have to get there early! Last night’s chops sold out within an hour of them being posted. To stay ahead of the race watch for upcoming specials with Twitter… Search for HarbourPub or PegasusCoffee
