BEEF
The Sell Farm has listed only ground beef, stew beef, and cubed steak which are all in one pound packages. We will have steaks and roasts to add by Tue evening. We will pick up our new beef product on Tue, Feb. 5, late, and need time to record weights before we can calculate and post prices.
So, if you are interested in purchasing beef steaks or roasts check back on Wed. morning and we should have these items listed. I’ll tell you that our beef sales have been wonderful this year — this might be the first and last retail beef for sale for the rest of the year– now is the time to stock up – the beef lasts well over one year in a freezer. Thanks for your support!

James Family Farm’s Wally Bees’ Honey and more

In addition to their breads, cookies, preserves and relishes and vegetables in season, the James’ Farm will sell Wally Bees’ honey as they did last year. They will deliver Wally Bees’ Honey this year because Wally has hives on the James’ Farm – therefore it truly is local honey. Look up their honey and order from James.

Fox Hollow Farm

Fox Hollow Farm has a number of new offerings this year. In addition to fresh local eggs, there are new and different breads, yummy goodies, dried herbs, and various skin scrubs. Take a look.

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  Message from Hannah's Heirlooms


Hello Everyone!

Just wanted to let you know my new shipment of non-GMO, heirloom seeds are in! I scaled down the varieties to favorite vegetables, herbs, and even a couple flowers. So order your fresh seeds now and plant a yummy garden! :)

Happy Saturday to you all!

Champaign, OH:  Commercial Kitchen Chat!


Here’s a great example of a Commercial Kitchen. We do not have one super close to us (they are located at Ohio State, Athens, Kenyon College, and this one called NOCK/CIFT near Bowling Green). It would be awesome if we could do this here, don’t you think?
Here’s the link but it looks like you might need to copy it?

Superior Seasons:  Come see our new look!


Good Day

Have you been to the website lately? Tell us what you think!

Ordering Reminders! We are still offering HOME DELIVERY to Individual customers on Wednesdays! CLICK HERE, until Monday at 5pm for Wednesday options. Deliveries occur normally between 12 and 2pm, but let us know if that doesn’t work for you and we’ll try to accomodate.

Valentine’s Day
Superior Seasons is loaded with great options for the locavore/foodie or hard to buy for! From books to preserves, flour, vinegars, veggies and meats. You can’t go wrong. The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and I’ve heard rumours that most females really, really appreciate a thoughtful food gift (wink, wink)

In the Garden
The greenhouses are starting up and getting ready to produce great plants for this spring. Farmers are finishing seed orders and planning for the year. Now’s the time to think about your garden seed, too! Remember to look for varieties for our growing season in the north – generally you want plants that are in the 60-70 days to harvest range maximum. Look for natural disease resistance in the varieties, as well – especially if you’ve seen mildew or blights in your garden in the last couple of years. Most local garden centers will also have a selection of seeds available so talk to them about what varieties will do best in our climate and why they stock the seed they do!

Good Growing
