Plattsburgh Online Ordering:  online ordering open


Goose eggs
Duck eggs
Fresh spinach
Mild and tangy salad mixes
Great pork from Asgaard
Parker Maple products

We are getting low on veggies, and some aren’t as pretty as they were so I don’t like to sell them “sight unseen” in case they don’t meet your expectations. In other words, there will be more at the last farmers market on the 13th. But, to get you through till them, we have a good assortment for very earliest spring.

Oh, and eggs. I have held some back to age for easier hard boiled peeling. If you want those instead of the absolutely fresh, make a note.

You may pick up your orders at Rehoboth Homestead Friday or I will deliver into Plattsburgh for a $3 delivery fee.

Enjoy the sunshine.

Citrus County Locally Grown:  Happy Easter!


Happy Easter dear friends! This week is your last week before Easter is here to get your naturally grown meats and produce for the family gathering!

Don’t feel like cleaning up the mess of food dyes from coloring Easter Eggs? Fox Hollow Farm has naturally colored eggs! Hard boil them and give the kids some crayons! Fun and no messy clean up! One idea my Mother always loves to do for Easter is to hard boil the eggs, peal them and THEN color them to make Deviled Eggs! They are fun for the eye and delicious for the tummy no matter what your age!

Gaia’s Creamery and Florida Fresh Meat Company have your grass fed meats while Simply Seafood has all the best local from the sea! Who’s thinking LOBSTER TAILS for Easter Dinner? YUM!

More and more veggies are coming on the Market from Register Cracker Farm, 3 Rock Farm, and Shoebox Herb Gardens. Meanwhile SaraFay Farm, 3 Rock Farm, and Shoebox Herb Gardens have your jellies, jams, and preserves covered be it for breakfast or culinary purposes!

Rise and Shine Bread has all the best Gluten Free breads you could want, not to mention DELICIOUS energy bars, cookies, and muffins!!!

Don’t forget the milk and cheese! Coffey Break Farm has goat milk and several flavored Chevre’s available this week after last week’s tasting. I personally LOVED the Cranberry Pecan and Chocolate Cherry. Surprise the family with a wonderful flavored goat cheese log this Easter! Gaia’s Creamery also has goat milk and grass fed cows milk, homemade butter, and YOGURT!

With such a delicious lineup how could you possibly go wrong?! Ordering is open from Sunday morning to Tuesday night. Quantities are sometimes limited so don’t delay www.citruscounty.locallygrown.net/.

Blessings, Healthy Eating, and Happy Gardening!

Market News


Hello!

We wish a Happy Easter to those of you celebrating today!

This spring has been the coldest and wettest on record since 2009. It has certainly made for very slow planting, with many things still waiting to get in the ground. All this anticipation can really get on a farmer’s nerves!
We have a limited amount of veggies this week, and appreciate your patience as we navigate this crazy spring. We do plan on picking back up to an every week schedule and anticipate a bigger selection next week. We do have some new vegetables and other offerings for you this week. Wedge Oak Farm has some amazing specialty sausages and their own bacon this week. We are so pleased to be able to offer these products to you, and are proud to be working with them!

For a bit of sunshine, please think of Turnbull Creek Farm’s Bouquet of the Week special. This is a special offer for existing Fresh Harvest customers and will only be good for a couple of more weeks. The price of bouquets will be going up this summer, so now is a good time to get in on a reduced price. How it works is that starting in May, the recipient gets 12 weeks of bouquets. Tally is also now planning flowers for weddings and special events, so if you have an event this upcoming season, think locally grown, organic flowers!

The long range forecast for summer has us above average in temperature and normal or slightly below normal rainfall. This is what climate change is going to look like for us in the next 50 years, erratic springs but warmer summers and longer fall seasons. This is where careful record keeping and crop planning are critical for successful crops. Instead of saying “hey it’s warm in January I think I will plant early” and then it getting hammered by cold weather, we know from experience that we will wait and plant on certain dates, no matter the current weather, and the crop will perform as it should a high percentage of the time. Farming is part art, part science, and part luck!

We really appreciate your support, and look forward to seeing you this Wednesday!

John and Tallahassee

Champaign, OH:  Some sad news...


I am so sorry to report that our market has lost a special friend as Kay Charles, grandmother of Bishop Sanders, has passed away. For those of you that know Bishop, perhaps our youngest vendor and grandson to all the regulars of the Champaign County Farmers Market, you know how important his grandparents are to him. They gardened together with Kay processing tomatoes by the bushel. Her smile and optimism were contagious. Bishop clearly exhibits many of her traits. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Bishop and his entire family. She will certainly be missed.

For those wishing to send a note of sympathy, I believe his address is 906 Wooddale Drive, Urbana, OH. 43078. Thanks to both Pam and Charlene for letting us know.
