Manchester Locally Grown: Time to Order Fresh Local Farm Products!

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.
Did you know that by ordering on the locallygrown market, you are virtually assured of receiving the “cream of the crop” from each farmer? You will receive the best products picked and made with pride especially for YOU! You can’t get any fresher and higher quality than that! Thank you for supporting your local farmers and small businessmen and women.
The market is open as usual, and will remain open for your orders till Tuesday at 10 pm.
Please be sure to read the section of the page entitled “Important Ordering and Pickup Information.”
Farm News of the Week
Triple T Cattle Farms from Bedford/Coffee Counties has joined the market. Scott Tidwell writes:
We are a family owned and operated cattle farm, raising grass fed beef. We do not use any hormones or antibiotics in the raising of our animals. The cattle are only given necessary medications (similar to us getting inoculations) to maintain the health of the animal and overall health of the herd. The farm is worked by 3 generations of Tidwell’s, with the added benefit of teaching the younger generation where their food comes from. We maintain a herd of approximately 75.
There are numerous studies that show the many benefits of grass fed beef. One of the greatest benefits is the lower amount of fat contained in grass fed beef. Grass fed beef is lower in saturated fats and higher in Omega 3 fatty acids. This makes grass fed beef a valuable part of a heart healthy diet. We also do not use any growth hormones or antibiotics in the raising of our animals.
This week Triple T has listed several cuts of grass-fed beef.
(Top L to R): Chuck Roast, Ground Beef, New York Strip Steak, Liver.
(Middle L to R): Ribeye Steak, Round Roast, Rump Roast, Shoulder Roast.
(Bottom L to R): Sirloin Steak, Sirloin Tip, Stew Meat, T-Bone Steak.

Botanical Harmony Farm has added a few of their very popular Goat Milk Soaps. Plant-based oils and butters, Palm Oil free and the majority of oils and butters are organic. Only Essential Oils for scent and natural colorants such as plant roots, leaves/flowers and clays.
the Himalayan Salt bars are wonderful for that slight exfoliation and added minerals for our skin. The soap lathers beautifully, both are incredibly creamy and formulated for face, body and even hair! We didn’t find a need for a separate shampoo bar because these work great!
THIS WEEK: 3 bars for $15! Save $3! Just add scents in the comment section of your order
We also have our organic sugar scrubs ON SALE! Regular price- $10, get yours for $8.50 with a variety of essential-oil scents to choose from! Great for skin polishing, face washing or shaving legs! Organic sunflower oil is perfect for all skin types!
We also added some beautiful feather bundles in the Holiday Decorations section that can be used anytime for crafts, décor and more!
Thank you for supporting our family farm business! We appreciate you so very much!

Erdmann Farm is on vacation mode for a couple more weeks. When I get back, I should have radishes and pumpkins in addition to the peppers I’ve had.
Knottynuff Acres is on vacation mode this week, but will return next week.
Solace Farm has added several varieties of lard soap to the market, and will add some tallow balms by tomorrow. Amy says:
“Old-fashioned” lard soap, but with a bit of coconut oil for better lather and moisturizing. I use local lard that I render myself. While lard soap often has a reputation for being harsh or rough on skin, that is largely because many years ago, lye was not consistently refined, and people didn’t use precision measurements. Today, with 100% pure lye and my digital scale, lard makes a beautiful white soap, very hard and long-lasting, with good cleaning power, while being very gentle and great for skin. These bars are 4 oz each, ingredients simply lard, coconut oil, lye, and water, with fragrances added for some great scents. I know this is an unusually low price compared to most handmade soap, but I want to offer a soap that is economical for everyday use, and since it is 3/4 free local lard, my input costs are very low (other than the days spent rendering lard of course!). I try to live as locally as possible, and I want to help make that an option for others as well.
Classic Lard Soaps (Clockwise from top left): Coffee Scrub, Orange Creamsicle, Lavender, and Sandalwood & Tobacco.
