Clemson SC: Clemson orders Due in this Morning
Hello Clemson Friends!
These past three weeks have been quite rough for Donna, having had gall stones blocking the bile duct,causing great havoc in my body and environment. I have been in for testing, and though these stones successfully passed, more are waiting to announce their presence in a not so nice way. So, maybe surgery is called for. I see the surgeon soon.
In the mean time, our market manager, Heidi has carried on and covered in places, as well as Anna from Greenville USLG, who has packed all our orders and made sure everything was there for me.
I am so grateful for these wonderful friends who jump in there and do what is needed.
If you wish to order this week, please get your orders in soon. We will be closing ordering the market soon this morning, and we do need a few more orders to make the trip expenses. So, I hope that you needed this reminder, and will log on and order your supply of beef, chicken, eggs, dairy, and veggies.
Thanks for sticking with us through thick and thin.
Love to all

Tullahoma Locally Grown: Local Food!
We’ve had such a beautiful fall so far this year. The mild weather has been good for our farmers. We have alot of great items on the market this week. Here’s a note from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse is running two specials this week. Buy 2, Get 1 free on all trade gallon pots of Perennials, Ferns, & Herb Plants from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse. Most are out of bloom now, but are strong, healthy plants, which will develop good root systems before cold weather. They are eager to burst into bloom in your garden next spring. Order your 2 plants as usual on the market, and in the comments section indicate your first & second choices of an additional free plant. Please be specific if there are 2 or more varieties listed (astilbe, carnation, etc.). Also, purple Wandering Jew hanging baskets are HALF-PRICE while supplies last.
Thank you and see you Thursday!

Northeast GA Locally Grown: Locally Grown - Availability for October 31, 2012
Hey Local Food Lovers,
It’s a SPOOKTACULAR week here at Locally Grown. I have several very important announcements so please be sure and read the whole message to get them….but first. Since market day falls right on Halloween this Wednesday I wanted to encourage those of you who like to indulge a sweet tooth now and then to forget about those cheap bags of candy and try some of Carolyn Brewer’s fudge. She has four different varieties including: Double Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Milk Chocolate with Pecans, and Peanut Butter. It’s fantastico. Do it for Halloween! If Fudge is a bit too sweet, try Sylvan Falls Mills Biscotti, or Chocolate Layer Cake. There’s also April Alexander’s Cheescakes in Apple Cinnamon, Champagne Pear or Plain varieties.
We have one little CHANGE at Locally Grown this week. We’re enacting our SHORTER PICK UP TIMES starting this week. With the night time coming earlier and the cold definitely coming as well we like to shorten the pickup to 5:00 until 6:30pm. In fact, that’s our regular pickup hours and we extend them until 7pm during the summer and early fall. We’ll be a little lenient this week but please try and come by 6:30 to keep us out of the cold and dark.
We have a small handful of great new items I want to mention this week. Mill Gap Farms has two of them: FRESH GINGER and JERUSALEM ARTICHOKES. We just went to the Mill Gap Farm FEATURED FARMER last Thursday night at Lake Rabun Hotel Restaurant and were able to eat some of both of these items and they were terrific. I want to make your mouth water just a bit by describing a couple of dishes on the menu that night. Actually these are the descriptions right from the menu.
Jerusalem Artichoke Soup – creamy soup made with Mill Gap Farm sunchokes and garnished with Mill Gap Farm sorrel.
*Shaved Turnip, Sunchoke, Arugula, & Kale Salad * – marinated Mill Gap Farm Hakurei turnips and sunchokes with Mill Gap Farm arugula and kale, with a balsamic-roasted garlic dressing, and York Hill Farm goat feta, and thin sliced Osage Farm tomatoes.
*Vegetarian Sushi Roll *- nori and sushi rice filled with Mill Gap Farm Daikon radish, Mill Gap Farm Shishito pepper, and Mill Gap Farm carrots, served with a Mill Gap Farm arugula-snow pea salad, and a Mill Gap Farm ginger-roasted carrot puree.
Pork Stir Fry – thinly sliced all natural pork, stir fried with Mill Gap Farm Buthi squash vine tips, Buthi squash, pardon peppers, lemon grass, and ginger, served over organic brown rice.
I bet you wish you’d gone. If you haven’t yet treated yourself to a FEATURED FARMER DINNER at Lake Rabun Hotel you better get your butt in gear because I think this week may be the last one of the season. This week features Turning Creek Artisans and Trillium Farms. It’ll be next Spring before it comes back.
I just have to say that there really is nothing better than having dinner with your farming friends on the night their food is featured at one of the best restaurants in the State of Georgia. That’s not an exaggeration, Open Table named Lake Rabun Hotel & Restaurant one of the Top Ten Restaurants in Georgia. As good as fresh food tastes all of the time, very few can combine such eclectic seasonal items in as phenomenal a way as chef Jamie Allred.
Last but not least, Melon Head Farms has a smattering of sweet potatoes offered. Nothing brings in the colder days of fall like some hot sweet taters. Show ’em your excited by buying them out.
Thanks for supporting our local farms. It’s greatly appreciated.
AND EAT WELL,
Justin in Habersham

Atlanta Locally Grown: Available for Saturday November 3
I hope this finds you all doing well. What a nice weekend. It is ending with a chill. Looks like we will be cold for a few days.
The gardens are looking great. We have lots of wonderful greens to choose from. Lots of turnips, radishes, kohlrabi, kale chard and more. The onions are even starting to take off. We will start to dig out Jerusalem Artichoke this week, pick more mushrooms and even take a bit more honey.
We are going to try and head up for some milk this week.
Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts. We enjoy being your farmers.
Thank you for all your support. Please remember to have your orders placed by 8PM on Wednesday. Pick ups are on Saturday from 9 to 10 at the Piedmont Green Market (Double B Farm booth), Sandy Springs Green Market (Taylorganic booth) and at the Brookhaven Farmers Market (Double B Farm booth)
