Request for Prayers

Although you all do not know Bethe Munn, the Lawrenceville Market Coordinator, I am requesting your prayers for her and her family. I grieve with my friend Bethe as she navigates the difficult journey of dealing with the loss of her Mother. Her Mom died suddenly on Friday. Please pray that God’s Love and Grace will comfort Bethe and her family and give them peace. Her Mother will be laid to rest in Mobile, Alabama on Wednesday.

Notes

Have you tried Dabrielle’s My Daily Bread FABULOUS Organic Quinoa Salad? Cucumber, tomato, red pepper, onion, greek olives, olive oil, lemon, dill, parsley, red wine vinegar, a touch of honey and chunks of Feta cheese make this one of the best Quinoa Salads I have ever eaten! It even rivals MINE! Try it today — I promise your taste buds will be so happy!


Check out Heritage Farm Beef items. I got a Beef Brisket about a month ago — I brined it, making corned beef and cooked it in the Instant Pot with Potatoes, Cabbage and Carrots! It was FABULOUS!


George and Krista of High Garden Center are back with us. George has spent the last year making many improvements to the Farm and his Gardens! New Gluten Free Bakery Bars, Microgreens, Mircrogreen Wraps and Veggies that will be coming soon, we are glad to see them back at Market!


Watsonia Farms News: I was so sorry that Asparagus was not delivered last week. All of the Organic Asparagus is gone for the year! Strawberries are going strong and will be around a while longer. We must have a minimum of 4 flats (32 quarts) ordered for Watsonia to deliver to us. At present, we have 16! You may want to order extra to freeze or dehydrate!


Unfortunately, Watsonia Farms lost a great deal of their Peach crop to the cold temperatures a month or so ago! I will keep you apprised of the availability as soon as I know any news!


Rusty of Little Tots Estate has been extremely busy with many Does kidding! The Mamas have lots of milk! Rusty’s Nigerian Dwarf goats give sweet and creamy milk. The butterfat content is high – great for drinking and for cheese! Milk is licensed for Pet Consumption Only. This is in accordance with Georgia Department of Agriculture regulations and the only way Raw Milk can be sold in the state of Georgia!


Sam of Cedar Rock Dairy takes great care with his all Jersey herd to ensure we have wonderful, rich and creamy Raw Cow Milk. Milk is licensed for Pet Consumption Only. This is in accordance with Georgia Department of Agriculture regulations and the only way Raw Milk can be sold in the state of Georgia! Get some for you Pets today!


I cannot stress enough the need for us to meet minimum ordering amounts for delivery to be feasible for our Farmers as well as to keep the Market open! At the present time, we are 1/3 of the way to minimum! If you haven’t ordered, please click the link below and place your order now!


We appreciate your support of our LOCAL Farmers and of the Market! Please SHARE the Market with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers!

Market News

Hello!

Well, folks, it has been a rough start for the strawberries! The rain seems to have affected the crop more than we initially thought. We had some complaints this week about the berries being bad in the middle or turning brown quickly. Although the crew picking berries did a thorough job of culling the berries when picking – throwing at least half away – it was hard to spot the damage on the inside.
At this point, John does not want to offer any berries until he is positive they are of the best quality. The hope is that by keeping the fruits picked, the rot will work itself out and the plants will set some good quality fruit! We will be bringing strawberries on Wednesday if we feel they are of good enough quality!

Meanwhile! We’ve got lots of other great veggies for you as well as beautiful transplants for your garden or patio!

The Bloomy Rind is off this week but will return next week!

Thanks so much for your support and patience – and keep your fingers crossed!

Thank you so much for all your support!

See you Wednesday!
John and Tallahassee

Dawson Local Harvest:  Exciting New Produce Rolling In!


Dawson Local Harvest for May 5th

Lots of New Produce This Week!

HI EVERYBODY!

I always get excited when new delicacies start arriving in mid-Spring, and this week looks to be loaded! From LEILANI’S, fresh Baby Carrots so crisp and tender, and lovely purple-bulb Spring Green Onions, a delight for salads, stir-fry, and more. They join Scarlet and White Turnips, Kales, a whole mess of Lettuces, “regular” Green Onions, Swiss Chard and Bok Choi.

Next Up, awesome Strawberries from BRAMBERI FARM (I got so excited when I found out they were available I couldn’t type straight, as some of you surely noticed). This early in the season quantities are limited by sunlight and temperature, and The Market is first ordered, first served, so be aware and get your orders in pronto!

Apologies for DAILY BREAD who had to bail on last week’s orders thanks to a fire in one oven and a door falling off another! What troopers, though, they’re back on this week!

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 7pm.

You’ll find the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST at http://dawsonville.locallygrown.net

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible! We guarantee your satisfaction with all products in the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST.

Have a happy and healthy week!

Conway, AR:  Opening Bell: Toad Suck Daze, Pork, Cabbage, Coffee!


Good afternoon!
I guess I won’t need to water the garden this week. We got 7.75 inches of rain overnight at Cedar Rock Ridge! I haven’t heard of any damage from our Growers.

Check out the specials on Pork products from Bar C Family Farm: bulk sausage, ham hocks, etc.

Crimmins Family Farm is back at CLG with 13 items listed this week.

We’re having another T-shirt giveaway starting tonight! Each item ordered from Ratchford Farms this week will earn you one entry into the giveaway for a stylish large T-shirt featuring Ratchford Farms Buffalo Ranch. For example: Buy 4 packs of ground beef and get 4 entries. A winner will be drawn Friday morning and the winner announced in the Friday Pick-Up Reminder email.

Remember that downtown will be blocked off for Toad Suck Daze starting Thursday. Plan your route to avoid this area at Friday pick-up. Carissa and I like to walk there after market on Friday to see all the sights and eat some fair food.

Take your pick of the wonderful, fresh-roasted coffee varieties available now! These were roasted and ground on Saturday in Rose Bud, Arkansas.

New varieties of Goat Cheese available now from White River Creamery!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!
