I hope this finds you all doing well.
The market

The market is open and remember the FFA Plant Sales starts this week at Newton County High School. It will be at the green house behind the new Career Academy. The plants are a result of the FFA classes and their hard work. All the proceeds benefit the schools ag program.

The much needed rain has taken away all the losses in our neighborhood lakes. It has also helped all our spring seeds sprout. Look for some new baby veggies this week along with all your favorites.

We will be getting milk this week.

Don’t forget to reserve your half hog. They will not be available for much longer.

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 Tuesday. We will see you on Friday between 5PM and 7PM at Copy Central (1264 Parker Road, Conyers) and don’t forget to share us with a friend.

Thank you,
Brady Bala
Market Manager

Madison GA:  The Market is open!!!!


See everyone Wed!!!

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!
