Green Fork Farmers Market:  Weekly Product List


Dear Green Fork Farmers Market Customers,

Happy New Year everyone!

It’s time to place your order for this week’s market. There’s a lot to choose from—eggs, meat, honey, baked goods, bath and beauty products, olives, vegetables, microgreens.

It’s a good idea to preorder, as some items are in limited supply right now. Then you can pop in to the market to pick up your order on Wednesday from 4-7 pm in the Breezeway at Nightbird Books. If you aren’t able to place an order by Monday at midnight, you can also shop at the farmers’ tables at the market on Wednesday.

Everything we offer is of the highest quality and is naturally grown or handmade with as many local, natural ingredients as possible. So go ahead and look through the product list and place your order, and we’ll see you on Wednesday!

Happy New Year!

Thank you to everyone who helped to make the Cumberland Farmers’ Market a reality last year. Through the retail market alone, we processed $139,817.90 in orders! That’s pretty amazing for our small town. Many thanks to every one of you for making it possible!

We are looking forward to another delicious year.

I’m starting out the new year running behind, so I can’t offer highlights today. Click here to browse the whole list for yourself.

TriLakes (NY) Winter Farmers Market:  Rehoboth Homestead update


Apologies – my eyes did not see that there were still salad mixes listed from last spring. The only salad greens this month are spinach and the small kale leaves. If you ordered salad mix you may get an automated email when I remove it from your order.

If you want to add spinach or kale, you can edit you order, or know that the salad mix was zeroed out and either make a new order for spinach or just email me at winter@rhomestead.com and I’ll make the change for you.

Again, apolopies. I have been spending so much time staring at the computer designing flyers, brochures, and major redo of our farm website that I just missed the salad greens checkbox.

TriLakes (NY) Winter Farmers Market:  buy from local farms - online ordering to Lake Placid


Happy New Year! We are planning to offer our winter online ordering with delivery to Green Goddess once a month this winter. Order now through Monday evening (the sooner the better for me to wash and pack, and eggs are first come first served). Pickup will be this Wednesday from 3 to 6 at Green Goddess’ new location in the Placid Pond Complex by Hannaford. Please make checks payable to either Rehoboth Homestead or cash.

This month you may choose products from Harmony Hills Farmstead and Rehoboth Homestead, since Asgaard Farm is taking a good vacation.

The forecast keeps changing, usually not for the better, but at this point it looks like I’ll be able to harvest spinach from the hoophouse Tuesday.

We hope you are having an enjoyable winter, and are looking forward to seeing you again. – Beth Spaugh

Co-op News


Welcome to all the new members of the Melody Lane Co-op and thank you to everyone that switched over from the old email list. I am really excited about the direction the co-op is heading!

Many of you have expressed interest in participating in workshops so I went ahead and added some tentative dates to our calendar on the About page. First up is Bone Broth. If anyone has experience with making bone broths, I could use your help. I have plenty of practice making chicken stock but I would like to get someone to share their experience with beef and other types of broths. Email me if you are interested in helping me with an upcoming workshop.

FRESH & LOCAL


Fresh & Local items come from local farms and are available for pick up the Thursday after you place your order.

New this week:

Moss Hill Farm
www.MossHillFarm.net
Floyd Keisler sells his vegetables through a CSA program. (What is a CSA?) These are the freshest, most nutrient-dense vegetables that you will find anywhere. The farm is located in nearby Milton, Ga and almost everything we get has been picked that same day! The 2013 CSA will begin in April and he will deliver to my house again this year – if we can get enough takers. If you are interested in signing up, you’d better do it soon. Word has gotten out about how awesome his veggies are so he expects to sell out early this year. You can download a CSA Application or go to his website www.MossHillFarm.net for more details. You will have to mail your application and payment directly to Floyd at Moss Hill Farm. His contact information can be found at the top of the application and on his website.

The 2012 CSA is over and with this mild winter Floyd still has some vegetables growing out in the field. For a limited time, he is offering “shares” on a week-by-week basis. A “share” is a big basket of whatever is currently growing. You don’t get to choose the individual items, you just have to take what he gives you. There are usually at least 10 different types of vegetables in a share. Last week we got carrots, Joi Choi, collards, turnips, broccoli head with greens, Napa cabbage, Swiss chard, mustard greens, green onions, and arugula. I have added Moss Hill Vegetables shares to The Market – listed under FRESH & LOCAL.

GROUP BUYS


Group Buy items usually come from farther away. We get a better price by buying in bulk and splitting shipping.

New this week:

Green Pasture
www.GreenPasture.org
Green Pasture Products, including Fermented Cod Liver Oil and High Vitamin Butter Oil, are now listed in The Market. This is a pre-order, meaning we don’t have any of these items currently in stock so you will not be able to pick them up this Thursday. At the end of the day Tuesday I will tally up all of our orders and place one big group order with Green Pasture. It will take a week or two for it to come in. I will notify you via email once it arrives. You can come the following Thursday during normal co-op pick up hours or email me to schedule another time to pick up.

You must pay for your Green Pasture order by 7:00pm this Thursday. The easiest way to pay is with a credit card when you place your order. I can also accept cash or check at my house any time between now and 7:00pm on Thursday. There is a locked drop-box in my carport where you can leave your payment if I am not home.

Green Pasture is still limiting the number of Butter Oil containing products we can order at a time. Our buying club is limited to a total of 12 Butter Oil products per month. That includes Butter Oil and Cod Liver Oil/Butter Oil blends. Unfortunately, the most popular Cinnamon flavor blend is out of stock right now anyway. In The Market, each listing will show how many of that item is currently available. If the number is 0, either Green Pasture is sold out or we have already reached our limit. Everything in the market is sold on a first-come-first-served basis. Please be courteous to your fellow co-op members and do not order too many of the limited items so that everyone can have a chance to get something.



Coming Soon:

Mother Earth Meats
www.MotherEarthMeats.com
I do not have an exact date yet but we will be ordering from Mother Earth Meats again soon, hopefully by the end of the month. Mother Earth Meats is located in Tennessee and provides many different types of pasture-raised and free-range meats including chicken, beef, pork, bison, lamb, duck, and more.

WORKSHOPS & EVENTS

Here is our tentative schedule for the upcoming months. I am also working on setting up some farm tours. If you have any suggestions for other topics or would like to host an event, please let me know.

February 21st, 7-9pm – Kombucha Workshop
March 14th, 7-9pm – Raw Milk and Homemade Yogurt Workshop

Thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the freshest and the most nutrient-dense foods possible!

A-GUSTAVORE WINNER THIS WEEK: MICHEL
Michel, a much-loved customer at Augusta Locally Grown, upped and moved her family to Washington GA this winter to start their own farm. In the winning photo, she and her daughter plant apple trees at “Blooming Buddah Gardens.” Michel wrote: “We are settling in here very nicely … taking our time and always discovering something new about this place that makes our Hearts smile.” Can’t wait to try those apples in a few years, Michel!

See you all at the market on Tuesday.
