Stone County, AR:  A Don't Miss Event!


Hi, Everyone!

The Market’s closed for this week. Thanks for shopping! See you next week!

We’re a little worried that Sunday’s message to you got lost in our weekly “Market opening” announcement. So, this is a reminder to be sure to mark your calendars for May 31-June 2nd for our Sustainability Weekend at Tomahawk Creek Farm, a privately-owned, state-of-the-art learning facility. Co-hosting the event with the Arkansas Craft School, we’ll be bridging the gap between agriculture and art. The weekend will be full of exciting and informative workshops; meals prepared by some of Stone County’s most talented gardeners and cooks; and, exquisite surroundings to explore.

Participants can either participate in workshops such as Mini-Ponics; Straw Bale Gardening; Textile Dyeing; Organic Skincare; Earth Oven Construction; and, Fermented Foods. Or, you may simply reserve a spot at one or all of the predominantly garden-to-table meals and/or join us after dinner Saturday night for some music under the stars from Finnegan’s Wake, a musical ensemble whose repertoire is composed of traditional and contemporary folksongs and dance tunes of America and the British Isles.

Whatever your interest, this wonderful weekend is a “don’t miss” opportunity to celebrate the joy of the Ozarks and learn new skills that will enhance your experience!

Call the Arkansas Craft School with questions and to reserve your spot for events and meals at (870) 269-8397.

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of Apr 28 2013


order at www.old99farm.locallygrown.net

Holy cow almost forgot to send out my tidbits of news and reminders; it’s tuesday already. I’m organizing a daylong intensive workshop this sat May 4 on Breeding, Growing and Selling Heritage Chicken; for the small flock owner. cost is $75, youth under 21 half price. call me if interested for more information.

First gosling hatched this week, and I have 9 chicks in the brooder from last week.

I’m out of honey till the summer and I have one hive hanging on by it’s fingernails, out of 8 that started the winter. Neonicotinoid class of systemic insecticides is most likely cause of acute bee mortality; they coat seed corn and other crops with it, it gets in the air and water and minute quantities are toxic to bees. You should know about this.

The orchard looks like it might produce some fruit this year, first since I planted it in 2009; peaches, plums, apricots, apples. At least there are flower buds on the trees, now there’s lots that can go wrong before a harvest!

Veggies, yes still chard, kale, spinach (hurry, the spinach is bolting) and a few other salad greens. Chives coming up this week or next, rhubarb probably a week after that.

Taking orders for fall beef and summer chickens, ducks, geese.

healthy eating,
Ian

Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op:  Weblog Entry


Reminder – The current market closes tonight (Tuesday the 30th) at 9 pm, so there’s still time to place your order.

Also, though we’re not suggesting you purchase things you don’t want or need, do please try to consider co-op products in your menu planning and support our local Arkansas vendors. If we want them to be available to us, we have to give them a reason to sell through our market by having sufficient sales to justify the drive to Hot Springs.

ALFN Local Food Club:  Brrr!


Looking outside right now, would you believe we’re in for some unseasonably cold weather by the end of the week? Instead of railing against the delay in peaches and watermelon, why not take this opportunity to enjoy one last batch of steamy vegetable stew? Instead of turning back on the heat, try warming up in the kitchen with a delicious, slowly braised roast! We have everything you need to take advantage of this last hint of winter on the market right now, but get it before tomorrow morning or you’ll have to suffer the cold… and the regret.

Conway, AR:  Tuesday Reminder
