Heritage Farm :  This Week From The Farm....Store is open


Dear Friends,

Hope this email finds you all doing well.

We have had a whirlwind week here at the farm with all the seeding, rowing, transplants and what not getting ready to go into the ground for spring harvest!! Spent the afternoon yesterday plowing, harrowing and laying out spring beds. The weather has sure been nice and keeps hinting at an early spring but we have been here before and are doing our best to keep ourselves in check and from, as my dad used to say, “chomping at the bit to get started”!! We know all too well that old man winter may not be done with us yet!

That said though we do have some really nice items already started in the protected nook of our propagation house and are looking to direct seed some early crops next week. Our hope and prayer is that the groundhog was wrong this year and spring is indeed in the air!

We also wanted to let you know that, by popular demand, we have re-opened our CSA sales for a few more weeks headed into spring. There have been quite a few people express disappointment that we closed them out before the tax refunds came in for a lot of folks so we, as is our custom, are responding to your request! We are honored that you would spend your money with us for good food done right so please order away!!! We will HAVE to close them for the Spring/Summer 2017 season shortly though so if you’re interested please order soon.

We were also asked to provide some specific and concrete examples of the problem for consumers with organic factory farmed items. So here is a clear example… Simple Truth Organic Chicken . They have an organic product line that many consumers buy thinking they are chickens raised on a quaint family farm because they are organic when the truth is they are industrially raised in an inhumane, nasty and overcrowded chicken house. The only thing that keeps them organic is that they get organic feed and some USDA bureaucrat is stamping their paperwork once a year to say they are compliant with the program. Even though 99%of the birds NEVER see a speck of sunshine or outdoor time at all!! To me (and I admit I am simple minded person) that should not be allowed to be labeled as organic….period!If you think the certification by USDA should protect you then take a look at these 2 links…One is the code of regulations for synthetic usage (as in non-organic) in food and the other is the list of EPA inert ingredients allowed under the aforementioned CFR code. Some of the EPA items are obviously harmless but good Lord!!!…try to figure out what they are allowed to do and not allowed to do and you will see what its NO WONDER most Americans have NO clue whats really in their food!!!

Code of Federal Regulations

EPA approved inert ingredients

That’s all for this week…Make sure and check out the facebook page Here to see current photos and tidbits and don’t forget to check out the menu below for this weeks ordering!!! We love ya and we need ya!!

Have a delicious week!!

Sincerely,
Greg, Lainya and the Hutchins Family

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!
