Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest - Hershberger Additions




Market News

Hello!
The Hershberger mystery has been solved. For some reason, my not-so-smart-phone did not give me his voicemail from yesterday until this afternoon. I have now listed his items on the Market page. You can place an order or an additional order online. Thanks.

From the Hershbergers:

purple hull peas $2.50 lb.
October beans $3 lb.
carrots $3/50 lb.
yellow squash $3 lb.
cucumbers $3 lb.
okra $2 1/2 lb.
red beets $3.50 bunch
blue scotch kale $3.50 a bunch
cantaloupe $3 each
watermelon $3, $4, $5 each
butternut squash $3 each
parsley $2.50 1/4 lb.
sorghum $7.50 pint

The Market will remain open until Tuesday evening for you to place an order for this week.

Here is some information on how Fresh Harvest works.
*If you see an item as Sold Out, write in the Comment section at check out that you would like that item if more becomes available. We’ll try our best to add it to your order.
*PayPal payments have to be manually added to your account. There will be a delay to crediting your account due to me needing to take time to do the bookkeeping. I also have to go to each account with cash or check payments. These are sometimes delayed by procrastination or being busy. You can still place an order even though it may cause your account to be “overdrawn”. There is no penalty for going into the minus column. Sometimes I’m a little slow in getting to the bank to make deposits, but it eventually happens.
• If you recruit a new customer to Fresh Harvest and they open an account with a $50 deposit, we will credit your account $10 for each new customer who signs up. They will need to tell me your name, so that I can credit your account. Word of mouth has been our best advertising. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated.
• Every week, we leave orders at the church for customers who cannot arrive at Trinity before 6pm. This has worked well for those who have difficulty with the 4-6pm window. Please let me know if you need me to leave your order at the church.
• The bag that you receive each week is to be brought back with your next order. We have been negligent in telling new customers how this works. Don’t feel bad if you return multiple bags, it happens all the time.
• We’re into reusing and recycling. Our clean egg cartons, honey jars, paper and plastic bags, berry containers are some of the items that we can reuse. If we can’t reuse the returned items, we’ll recycle them.
• We do guarantee everything that we sell. If you ever have a problem, please let us know and we will credit your account.
• If there are other products or growers that you think should be a part of Fresh Harvest, please let me know.

Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

GFM :  July 20


Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of July 13, 2019


We are coming into the bountiful harvest season with new vegetable crops and berries ripe for picking.
Added this week: beet greens, chicory (young green radicchio), carrots, lovage, New Zealand spinach, cukes and new collards.

Last week I listed all the crops we have in the ground and forgot eggplant and sweet and hot peppers!

Black currants are now ready for picking at $1/100 gm which works out to about $5/qt or L. Raspberries same price. Bring your containers or use ours.

Eggs on special: buy 2 get one free dozen.

Beef: ground, steaks, stew (kabobs), roasts all available.
Pork selection: chops, roasts, smoked ham steaks and hams, more.
Website call-out for the week: David Holmgren’s FutureScenarios essay from 2008. He is the co-founder of permaculture, the design system for living well within the Earth’s means. He ends with this conclusion:
Let us act as if we are part of nature’s striving for the next evolutionary way to creatively respond to the recurring cycles of energy ascent and descent that characterise human history and the more ancient history of Gaia, the living planet. Imagine that our descendants and our ancestors are watching us.

Market News

Tanya from Cultured Traditions wrote to let me know that she was back this week after a longer-than-usual absence. She had a mechanical problem with her walk-in cooler, one that made it get below freezing in there for a bit too long. A fair number of her items in there, sealed in glass jars, froze and burst open. She caught it before she lost everything but she still had quite the mess to clean up and had to start the fermentation process over again for quite a few things. But, she’s super happy to be back, and would like you to enjoy special pricing on her inventory this week only.

Apart from that announcement, we’ve reached the lazy days of summer, and I’m going to take that to heart and let you get right to ordering!

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Fresh Harvest, LLC:  Fresh Harvest for July 14th




Market News

Hello!

Fresh Harvest has been selling the Hershberger family’s produce for over 15 years. They are an Amish family that has provided excellent produce for Fresh Harvest over the years. Abraham relies on a neighbor’s phone to call me every Sunday when they have items available. When I’m not near my phone, Abraham will leave me a message with all the items and quantities that he wants me to list on the Market page. He’ll call me back Tuesday morning to find out what has sold and what he needs to harvest. Today is a first. He called me twice while I was outside and he did not leave a message. He doesn’t trust technology, so he will usually call me back to see if I got his list; but not this week. Anyway, we have a nice selection of items this week.

Blue Honey Farms thinks that they might have one more week of blueberries after this week. I’ve listed Cherokee Purple tomatoes as well as mucho Sunsugar cherry tomatoes. We have added a couple of new varieties of potatoes, Yukon Gem and All Blue. The All Blue potato seems like a novelty, but they are really delicious that compliments their appearance.
It’s unusual to have tasty, local lettuce available in mid-summer. Both Pig & Leaf Farm and RnR Farm have figured out a way to keep the delicious lettuce growing in the heat.

The Peach Truck has freestone peaches this week. They will be set up next to us throughout the peach season.

Dozen Bakery cookies and breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are in abundance.

Hemp Honey and Sorghum are available under Honey.

You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!

If you need to text me, my number is 615-838-0428.
