Making the Most of the Season of Giving

 

By Ron Subber

‘Tis the season . . .

It seems like it was just spring a few days ago, and now pumpkins are everywhere and thoughts of carved turkeys and eggnog are not far away. The 2018 holiday season is fast approaching, and many of our thoughts turn to family traditions to be shared once again. Everyone at Hunterdon Land Trust shares those same thoughts. But it knows that the “holiday” season also means the prime “giving” season for many of you. It is the time of year when many of you focus on your charitable giving, and I’d like to share a few thoughts with you.

First, we often associate charitable gifts with tax deductions and that is still very much the case. The United States Congress, over the years, has made many changes to the rules for taking tax deductions for charitable gifts to organizations like the HLT. Rates and rules have been adjusted over the years, and there have been very recent changes that affect many. However, for most people, whether you normally itemize deductions or not, there still is a significant tax advantage in making charitable contributions.

This is especially true when making donations using stock or mutual funds that have appreciated over the years. Despite the recent turmoil in the stock market, there has been a tremendous increase in stock values since the low point in 2009, and many find that they have a substantial gain in their holdings. Contributing a portion of this “highly appreciated” stock not only creates a potential tax deduction, but also totally avoids the tax on the gain in the value of the stock.

HLT does not give specific tax advice, and I strongly recommend talking with your tax advisor to learn how you might benefit tax-wise from your contribution. But if you have appreciated stock or mutual funds, it is likely that you will benefit from current tax law.

Regardless of the tax implications and whether you have appreciated stock, most people report that their prime motivation in making gifts to charities like the Hunterdon Land Trust is NOT receiving the tax benefits, but rather the strong desire to further the mission of the organization. We know this is especially true of HLT supporters. We constantly hear from you that preserving the beauty and benefits of the fields, streams, trees and flowers of our special county is the prime reason for your support. The tax benefits are often an added (and sometimes very significant) bonus, but HLT appreciates that your support is driven primarily by your desire to have us help you in continuing to preserve what we are so fortunate to have here in this wonderful place.

The staff of Hunterdon Land Trust would love the opportunity to personally discuss your desire to support them, and to assist you in deciding how best to accomplish that. I know they appreciate all of your past generosity, and that they pledge to continue to earn your trust and support.

And I hope you enjoy the pumpkins and the turkey and the eggnog . . .

New Vendors, Phillips Farms Returns For Annual Holiday Farmers’ Market

 

Our holiday Farmers’ Market has a number of special treats in store for you: a new vendor, a special guest and the return of Phillips Farms! Make sure to join us at the Dvoor Farm this Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a truly special market.

Phillips Farms returns your favorite fresh fruits and vegetables, fruit spreads and preserves, apple cider and more.

You’re going to find yourself in quite a pickle trying to decide what you love best about our newest vendor! If you love pickles, you are going to be wowed by Pickle Licious’ incredible selection of full sour pickles, half sour pickles, firecracker chips, horseradish pickles, kosher dill pickles, sweet gherkins and more.

If you haven’t been to our market in the past few weeks be sure to visit our other recent additions: AquaSprout Farms and Nourished by Nadia. AquaSprout operates neighboring Somerset County’s first aquaponics farm and offers lettuce and kale at our market. Nourished by Nadia features organic skincare products and elderberry syrups — both of which make great gifts or stocking stuffers.

We’ll also welcome I See Spain to our holiday market. It will offer a beautiful and inspired collection of cookware and kitchen prep tools. Take a look on its website, and then make sure you visit its stand for the perfect gift.

lso Cherryville Farms returns  with its amazing lavender products and harvest woodworking crafts.

You’ll also find great gifts at many of our farm stands including locally roasted coffee beans and teas at Fieldstone Coffee Roasters; hats, gloves or mittens, scarves, blankets, alpaca socks and more at WoodsEdge Farm; or get someone special on your list a CSA share for next year from Sandbrook Meadow Farm.

Don’t forget to pick up your Thanksgiving turkey from Griggstown Farm or Purely Farm, and if you are looking for a beautifully breasted, all-natural bird make sure you get here early as they’ll be flying off the shelves. You know, if we had shelves. And if turkeys could fly.

And if you want to cut into that delicious bird with ease bring your knives over to Neil’s Knife Sharpening Service. Besides kitchen knives, Neil sharpens, scissors, lawn mower blades, paper cutters and just about anything else with a blade.

Holiday Market Recipe

This week, Chef Matt McPherson from Matt’s Red Rooster Grill shares with us his amazing Three-Day Thanksgiving Turkey Brine recipe. (Thank you, Matt!)

Three-Day Turkey Brine

What You’ll Need:

1 gallon fresh apple cider
6 garlic cloves, crushed
1 sweet Vidalia onion, medium dice
1 ½ cups light brown sugar
1 ½ cups kosher salt
20 whole black pepper corns
3 bunches fresh thyme
2 juniper berries crushed
1 star anise, crushed
4 bay leaves broken

What To Do:

– Mix above ingredients together.
— Place turkey in mixture and place it in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
— Rinse lightly and air dry in the refrigerator for 24 hours. This will ensure a crisp skin.
— Combine 1/4 cup olive oil, ¼ cup melted butter with juice and zest of 2 oranges, salt and pepper, 1 bunch of fresh thyme, chopped. Mix together and rub the turkey, roast in the oven and enjoy.

Music

Guitarist Keith Calmes will perform in our music tent from 10 a.m. to noon.

Calmes has been performing and teaching guitar for over three decades. His performance credits include a Carnegie Hall recital debut as Winner of the Artists International Competition, concerti with the Monmouth Symphony, a performance with Maestro Carlos Barbosa-Lima and many concerts and recordings with flautist Marjorie Koharski.

Although usually considered a classical guitarist, Calmes’ musical diversity can be attested to. He has studied with Jazz master Jim Hall and opened for Surf legend Dick Dale and Flamenco virtuoso Juan Serrano. A deep interest in Indian rhythms has led to serious studies and performances with percussion virtuoso Selvaganesh Vinayakram and his family band. Keith has also played in a wide variety of jazz and rock bands.

Sponsors

Please support our local sponsors who play a pivotal role in helping us protect the places you love. They are: Basil Bandwagon Natural Market, Northfield Bank, McPherson & Newland Insurance, and Matt’s Red Rooster Grill.
