Buford Locally Grown:  Volunteers needed this Saturday, April 29th


Historic Downtown Buford will have it’s 1st annual Spring Fling Shop Hop this Saturday, April 29th! We will have an information table set up and are looking for volunteers to hand out flyers and talk to folks about our awesome co-op!

Shifts are only 1 hour long and afterwards you can enjoy appetizers, drinks, drawings and promotions offered by some of the merchants.

I know many of you can’t volunteer during pick up hours because of work or family so this is a great opportunity to support and promote our co-op!

Our table will be located in front of Further Down the Rabbit Hole Boutique at 92 E. Main Street, Buford 30518.

If you are interested in helping please click the link below:

Thank you in advance for volunteering your time!

Special thanks to our fellow co-op member, Pam Wilkinson, for coordinating this!!

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 farm week of apr 23 2017


Two orders in this week as of tonite, Thursday. Does the weekly prompt memo really make a difference for people? Same fresh greens growing in the greenhouse, same eggs, frozen meats: chicken, lamb and pork, and cold storage crops. Lots to eat here. It’s all online easy to order.

Tomorrow morning our MP Filomena TAssi is holding an ‘tea time’ at 9:30 to 10:30am at her constituency office at 1686 Main St west. There is lots of parking at the site so why not drop in to tell her what you like and don’t like about the Justin record so far? I’m attending to plug the climate crisis and why we need leadership from Justin. Tassi has a facebook page and a Twitter account; her phone # is 905 529-5435.

This fall I have undertaken to host Guy McPherson, the conservation biologist whohttps://www.generosity.com/emergencies-fundraising/guy-mcpherson-e-canada-ne-us-2017-events—2 has been alone in braving the storm of ridicule to get the news out that climate disruption is real and already happening, with dark consequences for all life on earth, including humans. you can find lots of his speeches on youtube. This is serious stuff. To fund the travel and event costs there is a crowdfunding site operational now. I wonder if any of you would consider passing the hat for $20 to help this along?

Healthy eating,
Ian and Cami

Cooking Thyme

If you love learning, good food, good company and a great time, Cooking Thyme is a unique opportunity for anyone age 6 and above to experience all those things.

Cooking Thyme was founded in 2014 by a fellow Market at Dothan customer, Allison Moody. The back story of Cooking Thyme is that Allison was diagnosed with AML Leukemia after a 16 year career in furniture sales.  After surviving cancer, her desire was to share her long time passion for food in a meaningful way by offering informal instruction in the art of cooking to people of all ages.  In the spring of 2016, she returned to her furniture sales career, but periodically offers cooking classes and a variety of freshly prepared foods throughout the year.


“The idea of Cooking Thyme was inspired by Hebrews 13:2 which reads “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing so, some have shown hospitality to angels and did not know it”. The goals of Cooking Thyme are to provide freshly prepared food items that comfort the soul and the opportunity for hands-on training to people of all ages in hopes they find joy in cooking as a means to show hospitality to others.”

Cooking Thyme is now scheduling a variety of camps and classes for younger cooks this summer. For adults, Allison offers customized lesson/events to suit many needs; everything from Girls Night Out and How to Survive in the Dorm to a Date Night for couples.

So if you looking for a great experience for your budding chef or want a different kind of intimate social event, or just want to expand on your own base of culinary knowledge, look no further!

Healing Is In The Leaves!

We at Mayim Farm want to see you at your best, healthiest potential!

Sometimes through lifestyle choices or hereditary non-options we have issues. However, our Creator has provided healing.
Our bodies are designed to heal!!!
We are creating a line of medicinal tinctures, salves and oils…natural products. Products created from nature that help our bodies heal.
Naturally if we eat a healthy organic diet we can create and maintain our best, but sometimes our body needs a little help with concentrates to give it a jump start.

These compounds are derived from plants that are native to the area we live in. We go out gather these native plants, concentrate them and provide them in a usable form that fits with our busy lifestyle. Not everyone has the time to do the research, collect the material and process it to a usable form…no need, we do it for you!
There is no substitute for eating right, but when your body needs a little help or a jump start we have an option for you…
We are here for you and your family…

Remember: Our bodies are designed to heal, all we need to do is give it the tools to work with!!

This Week’s Grower Notes

We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

SANDSPUR FARMS: The time has come!! As you are reading this, I’m probably finishing the first “pickin” of our squash. We will start this week with our CSA boxes! Squash, green beans, zucchini and who know what all else will come ready between now and Friday. Our blueberries should be coming very soon as well. There will be several types, so be sure and read the descriptions.
Also, we have reduced the price of our ground beef and offer some bundle packs. If you have not yet tried it, you really should! It has very little to no fat to drain off. It also has no additives for color or anything else. The dark red color is what wholesome, 14 day aged ground beef looks like. Plus, it’s not from old dairy cows either. Thanks again for your continued support!

HORTON’S FARM: Honey Flow! Our bees continue to work hard bringing in nectar for this years honey crop. Out here in rural Dale County they have access to some blooming (nuisance) plants that are not normally found in urban environments where property is managed more closely. A case in point is the Southern Prickly Ash. Ours were COVERED in bees for three days last week. The last time they bloomed this well our honey had a quality/taste to it that can only be described as “buttery”.

The Indians called the Southern Prickly Ash a “toothache tree” because of its numbing ability.
It’s easy to see why people don’t want it on their property!

AVALON FARMS: This weekend finds me in Birmingham celebrating my youngest child’s graduation from UAB. Excited to see what comes next for him.

We’ve added green beans to the market this week. The squash are coming along and those silver dollar sized patty pans ought to size up this week. God willing.
