Suwanee Whole Life Co-op:  Tortillas & Blueberry Oat Muffins from My Daily Bread


Hi Members,

This didn’t make it into the newsletter in time but wanted you all to know. Dabrielle & Bruce from My Daily Bread will be out of town next week for her Uncles’s 90th birthday in Wisconsin.

They are leaving the bakery in capable hands if their two bakers, however, there are items specific to Dabrielle that will NOT be available – Spelt Tortillas and Blueberry Oat Muffins.

Please considering ordering extra Tortillas and/or Blueberry Oat Muffins this week and freeze. They freeze very well!

I know many of your order those 2 items weekly and didn’t want you to not have them the following week.

All other My Daily Bread items will be available this week. The following week, all items except Tortillas and Blueberry oat muffins will be available to order.

Thanks so much,

Nora & My Daily Bread

Joyful Noise Acres Farm:  The JNA Farm market is open for ordering.


Good morning, good morning!

At Joyful Noise Acres Farm, the next batch of baby chicks are here and the teenagers in the front yard have moved (yea!) to the pasture. Our vegetable farmers are in the thick of growing and that means weeds. Please contact them if you would like to volunteer to lend a hand, intern or work for food. Sunshine and dirt are the best relaxation I know of.

We are so excited about this week at the market. Chrystal Cantrell is going to be helping me with the market. She will be working with the orders, making sure you see all the wonderful samples and extras that are offered and keeping things moving in general.

Speaking of extras, we have another table now that is stocked with many of the extras our farmers and cooks have made. These items are for sale so make sure to grab a goodie or two. This is where samples will be also. This past week we sampled Diabetic Friendly Baking English Muffins, ‘Swamp Honey’ from Paul Foster Apiary and Spicy Carrot hummus from Farm Fresh Foods. The hard part of working the market is not eating all the samples. We had quite a few extra vegetables and baked items for sale. In all the busy, I didn’t have the cheese out to sample but will make sure I do this week.

Now off to the market, the freezers are full of chicken, pork and beef. The eggs are in abundance, the vegetables are beautiful and the refrigerator is full of good things from the kitchens. Grab your grocery list and start shopping or start shopping and then decide what to make this week. Either way, you will not be disappointed – and if you are, you let us know.

We love growing for you and look forward to seeing you Wednesday.
Blessings,
Mary Beth
