TriLakes (NY) Winter Farmers Market:  Trilakes Winter Market open

Good chilly evening. The market is open for orders through Monday, with pickup at the new Green Goddess location in (northeast corner of the Placid Pond complex, in front of Hannford).

I apologize that I had not looked for all the automated messages and corrected them last time. Pickup is from 3 to 6 on Wednesday. Please bring cash or make check payable to “Rehoboth Homestead”. I am running it through our farm account and passing Harmony Hills and Asgaard money through to them. I recommend you not write the check until you get to the pickup – fresh greens are very “iffy” – this is the coldest/cloudiest winter we’ve had since growing winter greens and it is not nearly as “productive” or “harvestable” as the last few years have been.

We do still have some great veggies, and lots of fresh eggs, wonderful meat, soap, cheese, salsas, etc.

Thank you for supporting local farmers.

Champaign, OH:  Help needed!

We have an oportunity to help a friend who is gathering some info. Can you help by filling out a survey? Even better, it is a survey about local food preferences. Check it out and lend a hand if you have a minute.

Like to eat? Ohioans are showing a growing interest in eating locally grown foods. A local survey is being conducted, through the support of the Ohio State Extension Office in Miami County, to better understand consumer interest and perceptions of buying local foods; and your help is needed! Please share your opinions by going to
and filling out a short and completely anonymous survey. Your participation is greatly appreciated. Thank you! If you have any questions please feel free to contact Brian Raison at or Jessica Chadwell at

Please fill it out for us!

Champaign, OH:  Juicy news!

Good gravy it is cold! Sorry to always be chatting about the weather but we sure have seen a wide range of weather diversity these days! Enough about that I guess!

Don’t tell my husband but I’ve spent some time with another man today! Check out The Bayou Gardener. While we have just met, I’m in love already. Looks like his videos, while I’ll admit might be a bit juvenile for the experienced gardener, are full of great suggestions and methods and will help all of us learn and become better at our craft. If you plan to make this year your first to try a garden, spend some time with my new boyfriend and you’ll see why I’m so fond! I’ll share him (but just today;)

A shout out too to our newest vendor Michelle Comer with Homecomer Traditions. You might know Michelle from Mechanicsburg with her soft pretzels, unless you are late to the market as she always sells out early. Those pretzels are addictive! My children go nuts for them! Find her under the Baked Goods tab and support Michelle!

I want to give a huge “Atta Girl” to Carla Miller from JC Growers. She is so on it already that she is asking for feedback from her customers on what they would like her to grow for them. It is only February and she is planning her garden. I put her on a pedestal because it is important if you want to eat something new this summer or fall, tell your growers what you want. They are all eager to please! Also, if there is another product, herb, meat, dairy or whatnot, please mention it to them. I assure you there might be others who want the same item and our vendors aim to please! Great Job Carla and Jenny! Superb!

Don’t forget, the market is now open even though it is Friday! Shop now through Tuesday! And please, if you enjoy the market, please tell a friend and offer to help them get set up with us. Our valued vendors work really hard to provide food for us and we need to continually support them so they can support us. The more we shop, the more they can plant, grow, expand their business, etc. It is the circle of shopping local!

Thanks and have a great weekend!

Here’s whats been going on at the Co-op.

Over the past few months a ‘steering committee’ has been meeting every month & working to establish bylaws that are in accordance with our values and principles.

We are almost at the point where we can file for Cooperative status with the state of Florida statute 619. Hopefully, within the month that will be a reality.

The problem is our location has to change at the end of February.

We need a permanent spot that we can call home for the state and county to recognize, as our agreement for the Ella’s location was only for 6 months.

The steering committee has begun looking, but currently, the co-op needs to raise funds in order to afford a space. The co-op is current paying for itself but not much more.

We’re trying to plan the next Steering Committee meeting for sometime in the coming weeks. If you would like to join in on the conversation, e-mail us.

More updates to come soon!

Coming Events

Birdhouse is looking for a new home.
