Independence,VA:  Market is OPEN & ICE CREAM!!


Good evening,

Be sure to get your orders in this week. These cooler evenings have definitely put me into food preservation mode. Don’t let all of this yummy Summer produce pass you by, start canning, freezing, dehydrating, fermenting and whatever else you do to save warm weather produce! Trust me, you won’t regret having amazing food this Winter.

To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.

Oour second and last Ice Cream Social of the year is happening a week THIS Sunday (August 19th from 2-5 pm)! If you haven’t been, we close down the entire street in front of the Grayson Landcare office, set up tents, tables and chairs, and even have a band and children’s activities. Of course, the best part is…the ICE CREAM and yummy toppings! Click here for more information. Please invite your family, friends and neighbors for a great time and a great cause! If you’re interested in helping out, we could use some more sheet cakes or cobblers and also some more servers. Please e-mail Michelle and let her know,

Thank you all so much for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!

Champaign, OH:  Wednesday Comes Calling

And, it’s calling for you…and your orders…by 8am, this morning!!

Your market manager was scarce, in blogging, this week. My daughter is home, preparing to make a big move into a big new job in a far away state…so, my time has been divided between her, the move, and with Hippie and the Farmer, as we burned the midnight oil, all last week, finishing the construction and painting of our new mobile festival kitchen, and as we spent the weekend in music festival mania…

So, it’s back to reality time…and ordering time…

Give it to me…

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Rain, rain, go away.!


As you can probably guess, these are challenging conditions for all the crops, not to mention for anyone trying to enjoy the summer. Or anyone trying to sow, plant, hoe, or even mow. I keep a rain/irrigation chart and it shows 16 days (and nights) of rain (about 12 inches) out of the last 23 days when this latest extended period of wet weather began. With more on the way! Add in heat, humidity, fog, and then a day when it felt good to take a hot shower and, well, we’ll see how the rest of the season goes. Having a well-drained sandy loam soil is very helpful in this situation, but we need the air to dry out, too.

So far, the vegetables are hanging in there, but production has slowed down in many cases. As ever, if an item you want is sold out please ask for it and we’ll do what we can.

We try to pick the best looking field tomatoes, but the heavy rain we’ve had can cause some marks and cracking, as you may have noticed. This shouldn’t affect the quality too much, but you may have to eat them sooner than later, especially with this humidity.

In any case, on we go.
