Tulsa Clean Food Market : Next winter market March 15
I’m quite thankful that last weekend’s winter storm didn’t arrive until after the farmers’ market! Here in western OK, we are expecting another big snow on Saturday. I hope winter is winding down and that we’ll have good weather for the next market, Saturday March 15, Whole Foods parking lot, 41st and Peoria, 8:30-11 a.m. You can preorder online until Wednesday March 12.
Wagon Creek Creamery
I am planning to make a batch of yogurt next week, but I won’t have enough milk to fill all orders, so please email me to reserve yogurt or butter and I’ll fill as many as possible. I won’t list those items online until our milk supply increases. It’s just too hard to predict inventory these days. Every time production starts to increase, we get hammered with another snow storm. :-)
We do have plenty of grass fed beef, raw milk cheeses, granola and granola bars.

Gwinnett Locally Grown: "SELFIES" & MOTHER EARTH MEATS ORDERING
The Market is open Thursday Noon – Monday 9 a.m. After that, ordering is disabled. Pick up your order Tuesday 4:30-6:30 p.m. at Rancho Alegre Farm at 2225 Givens Road, Dacula, GA 30019. New to The Market? Learn about how it works here.
We will begin planting cool-weather crops this Saturday! Our floating row covers should protect the beds down to 28 degrees, so if we get another chilly dip at night, they should be OK! We are also starting to see little bits of greenery around some of our perennial herbs. Yayyy!
We have Ghee available again (brochures available at pick-up!) (Categories: Group Buys — > Pure Indian Foods.) Also, we only have three packages of Pilar’s herbal cold remedy left (Fresh & Local — > Remedies, All Natural — > Herbal Tea Cold Remedy). With the still somewhat erratic temperature swings, we are susceptible to colds, and this is a huge help!
CO-OP / GROUP BUY NEWS
Mother Earth Meats bulk orders are due in by TUESDAY (second Tuesday of March)! Simply use our address of 2225 Givens Road, Dacula, GA 30019 as the delivery point. Please be sure to drop us an email or forward a copy of your receipt so we know who to expect and about how many boxes. This is not an automated process on MEM’s end – thanks so much!!!
Your order will be delivered to our store the fourth Tuesday of March. Their website is here. Although their chicken is the popular thing, they do have other items too. I can’t wait until we get our freezer – it has been a long time since I’ve had elk. They also have lamb, bison, duck etc., besides their bulk deals!
DO YOU KNOW WHAT A “SELFIE” IS?
Thankfully I have grandchildren who keep me in the loop of new, gramma-acceptable fads. “Selfies” are pictures you take of yourself from a digital camera and upload to social media. Hopefully I can get a selfie from each staff member and volunteer so you can put a face to the names I sometimes blog about. In the meantime, we would love it if you would like to share one of you that we can post on FaceBook and Twitter – I was thinking something along the lines of “Happy Gwinnett Locally Grown Customers” – John S. or Jane D. (or maybe no identifying name at all.) Please send to email@example.com – I will contact you before uploading! Maybe I can even get our producers to participate!
TIP – I found that if I hold my phone / camera up and look up at it, my double chin isn’t so apparent!
Rancho Alegre Farm
Old99Farm: Market Research: cost of protein
I have bottled up the last of the O99 honey crop, about 20L, now available.
A faithful member lent me the 25th anniv edition of More With Less cookbook, which has a chart in it of common sources of protein and costs. But the costs don’t match ours, so I’d like to do an update and publish it here.
Since I don’t go to grocery stores hardly at all, maybe I could get a few of the 175 subscribers to Old99Farm.locallygrown to offer to get the price data for say 10 items. I’d send you the list as a form and you’d take shopping with you. (would make a good educational project for kids too.) I’ll ask several people to do the same list so we can compare. Just include for each item, store, size (weight), price, date. that’s all. I’ll do the rest and share it in a future blog.
Speaking of sharing, I came across a nifty website, www.streetbank.com which makes it slamdunk easy to be a helping neighbour to someone who needs a tool, dvd, book, knowhow, etc. Or a source for you when you need sumthin. I’m in there.
Some powerful links readers have sent in to me: titles speak for themselves.http://www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/episode/2014/03/04/windfall-the-booming-business-of-global-warming/
We don’t get to see much footage of the carnage being done in area the size of France, (yes that’s all slated to be strip mined for tarsand oil.)

Childhood food allergies have more than tripled in the last twenty years. New research is testing old assumptions about how to treat them. Can they find an allergy fix?
Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op: Volunteers
Here’s a great way for some of you who cannot volunteer on Friday afternoons to show your support for the co-op: We need to a little gravel work at the back of Emergent Arts so our vendors aren’t tracking in mud to the storeroom. This project can be done with one of the market managers on a weekend. Volunteers for this opportunity do need to be strong and able to move around without difficulty.
Thank you to Huey Grandstaff and Karen Schuman for volunteering to help at this week’s pick-up day. Back-up volunteers are Julia Venkateswaran and Sallie Culbreth. Reminder: Back-up volunteers will be contacted directly if needed to substitute.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up to help with gravel work. You will receive 2 free months of co-op membership.
For market pick-up days, sign up on VolunteerSpot by clicking here: http://tinyurl.com/Co-opVolunteers
Please email me with any questions or problems, or if you prefer not to use VolunteerSpot but still want to volunteer.
