The Market is now OPEN until Monday at noon!! Click here to order now!

Hello everyone! Hope your week has been short, sweet, and productive thus far. I am always happy to hear you guys are enjoying all the goodies you’ve been getting at the market. So many of you have expressed how delicious Fred’s grass fed beef is compared to the stuff you’ve been getting at the supermarket. Many of you have also mentioned that Bill’s chickens are huge! And the taste is far superior to conventionally grown poultry. Happy to be here sharing all of this with you all, and it really makes my heart sing to see you all come out and support. We need to get the word out about the market, so please let your friend and family know where they can find us! And don’t forget about our “refer-a-friend” program, here’s how it works.

I am happy to see the Ferments section of the market has some NEW and exciting products this week. Some fermented dill pickles and green beans which make a tasty and healthy little snack. We also have Kombucha (a fermented tea beverage) and some milk kefir grains. All great source of probiotics, so check it out!

As always, don’t forget your essentials for the week and that MUST include veggies of course! So check out The Veggie Patch and Back in Time Farms for those.

The Cumming Harvest:  This Week at The Cumming Harvest


WHY BUY LOCAL?

Our farmers are dedicated to stewardship and committed to quality. And while they love what they do, many aren’t doing it as a hobby. They need to make a living. Consumers that value fresh food and a working landscape support local farmers by buying their products. Here are some reasons why:

LOCALLY GROWN food tastes better and is better for you. The crops are picked at their peak, the shorter the time between the farm and your table, the less likely it is that nutrients will be lost. Food imported from far away is older and has traveled on trucks or planes, and sat in warehouses before it gets to you.

Local food preserves genetic diversity. Smaller local farms often grow many different varieties of crops to provide a long harvest season, an array of colors, and the best flavors.

Local farmers aren’t anonymous and they take their responsibility to the consumer seriously.

Local food supports local families. The wholesale prices that farmers get for their products are low, often near the cost of production. Local farmers who sell direct to consumers cut out the middleman and get full retail price for their food – which helps farm families stay on the land.

Local food builds community. When you buy direct from a farmer, you’re engaging in a time-honored connection between eater and grower. Knowing farmers gives you insight into the seasons, the land, and your food. In many cases, it gives you access to a place where your children and grandchildren can go to learn about nature and agriculture.

Local food preserves open space. When farmers get paid more for their products by marketing locally, they’re less likely to sell farmland for development.

Local food benefits the environment and wildlife. Well-managed farms provide ecosystem services: they conserve fertile soil, protect water sources, and sequester carbon from the atmosphere. The farm environment is a patchwork of fields, meadows, woods, ponds and buildings that provide habitat for wildlife in our communities.

Local food is an investment in the future. By supporting local farmers today, you are helping to ensure that there will be farms in your community tomorrow. That is a matter of importance for food security, especially in light of an uncertain energy future and our current reliance on fossil fuels to produce, package, distribute and store food.
