Greener Acres Farm:  How About This Weather?


So how is everyone weathering these strange weather patterns? One day it is freezing cold, the next it is in the 50’s and then it dumps wet, heavy snow. Please be safe out there and take care of yourself.

One of the best ways to take care of yourself is to eat a healthy diet, free of excessive chemicals and preservatives. And we are here to help you. All of our growers/producers use the most sustainable growing methods possible. The “Our Growers” tab will provide you with more information about each grower, and as always, feel free to contact us with any questions.

We are currently in the part of the year well there is very limited produce, however, the days are lengthening and green is on the way. In the meantime, we still carry a large selection of meats, eggs, dairy as well as natural sweeteners like honey and maple syrup. And for those with a sweet tooth, we also carry delicious baked goods.

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




Manchester Locally Grown market


We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new 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.

Farm News of the Week



Andra from Sow’s Ear Piggery writes:

Sow’s Ear Piggery will be on site at this Thursday’s market with ground pork samples. Come taste how you can substitute our natural pork in your traditional family-meal recipes. Frozen packages of ground pork will be available for sale. Discount to tasters as supplies last.




From Linda Reed at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:

The first blooms of spring are always a bit tricky to predict. I’ve been watching my daffodil garden, as well as the weather report, and I’m going to list the Spring Daffodil Bouquets on the market this week. If this year’s weather follows the “normal” (erratic) pattern, they will only be available for three weeks because of early hot weather. I’d love for you to enjoy them along with me!

I’m starting to see buds here and there in the greenhouse too. It’s a bit early to set plants in the garden just yet, but these have been in an unheated house all winter, so they’re used to the temperatures. As soon as the weather gets nice enough for the gardener, these early beauties will be ready to go: Hellebore (Lenten Rose), Dwarf Coreopsis, Creeping Phlox, Pulmonaria, Ginger, Primrose, and Sweet William (Dianthus barbatus). Most of these will be in bloom in the next two or three weeks.




Important Ordering and Pickup Information

Ordering will be open until TUESDAY at 10 p.m., and your order will be available for pickup on THURSDAY between 4:00 and 5:30 at our NEW LOCATION across from Manchester City Schools administration building, 215 East Fort Street, Manchester.

We can also deliver your order to your home (or other location) on Friday afternoons, for a small fee, if it’s more convenient for you. If you prefer to utilize this service, please place an order for it, same as other products, selecting your delivery area. Don’t forget to give us your location address in the comments section of the order. Also please text Linda at (931) 273-9708 for specific arrangements.

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible. Please encourage our local farmers by helping to spread the word about our wonderful market to everyone you know. We offer a great variety of local farm products, and our items will be in your hands in time to plan for the weekend. Wonderful local products are available for ordering from the comfort of your own computer.

More new farmers are considering joining our market, if they can expect enough sales to help pay their transportation costs. Please help us grow the market by sharing this e-mail with your friends and inviting them to give us a try. And if you haven’t ordered from Manchester Locally Grown for a while, please check out our wide variety of offerings this week. Also please let us know if we can improve our selection or scheduling in any way to better suit your needs.

Blessings,
Linda & Michael
