We drop off every other Saturday from 10:15 – 11:15 AM in Greenville, TX, from 12:30 – 1:30 PM in Murphy, TX and from 3:00 – 4:00 PM in Dallas, TX (NW Hwy & Midway Rd). Or, you can pick up at the farm Mon-Thurs 10AM – 4PM.
We have a baby! This time, it is not a farm baby – my first grand-baby came into the world over the week-end so, I will be off the farm for about a week or so helping my daughter after this big change/little addition came into her life. From my point of view, it was just like any other farm baby – is mama recovering well and getting enough nutrition? and.. is baby nursing well?
The answer to those questions are: not really/having some struggles.
My little grandson came 3 weeks early and though his lungs are developed and he did not need any ICU care post delivery, he and mom are struggling with nutrition and lactation. He was born to my oldest daughter who never fully embraced our farm life as we were developing it; nonetheless, I am grateful I have this opportunity to share our wonderful source of good, nutritional food with her. I plan to arrive with arms full of farm fresh food and am hopeful my daughter will be more receptive of it now that the need is here more than ever. But, before I go, I wanted to touch base with all of you to let you know why I may be out of pocket for awhile. Mainly this means I won’t be available to meet at the drop off locations with eggs or other items during the next two week-ends. But, after that, I should be back into my regular routine.
The holidays are coming up so we are busting out our amigurumi that Grandma Green (oh my, now she is “Great Grandma Green”) worked so diligently on all year. We have lots of nursery stuffed animals, baby dragons and fairy tale characters (Puss N Boots, The Three Pigs, Hansel and Gretel, etc). You can find some of these on our greenfamilyfarm.locallygrown.net market page. I have not added all the pics but, will do so when time allows.
Other than that, if you ordered chicken and have not paid for your order yet, please do so soon. (All the PayPal invoices have been sent so, if you placed an order and have not received an invoice, please contact me ASAP). We have nine birds left available and after that, if your order is not paid for, it could get bumped. Plus, your payment helps supplement the upfront costs we put out to raise the birds.
We also have 1/2 of a beef available. I have had a few inquiries on it but, have not yet received a deposit. This is the last of our beef available for this season (scheduled for processing May of 2020) so, if you want to reserve it in your name, don’t wait as I can’t guarantee it will still be available as we get closer to the New Year.
We also still have frozen cuts of lamb available now. Whole and 1/2 lamb will be offered this spring for distribution just before Easter of 2020.
Finally, thank you all for your continued support and your understanding as I step away from the farm for a bit to tend to my baby who just became a mama! But, don’t worry, our farm hands are still on staff and David is still on the farm all week. And, all our farm babies are on the ground, growing and doing well (even through the on/off wet/cold snaps we have been having!).
Best to all!

Good morning East Texas,
What a great week to cook up some cold-weather, locally-sourced meals to keep you warm & healthy. Find grass-fed, hormone-free bones to make a hearty broth. Freshly baked bread, eggs for your own baking, honey to sweeten your hot tea, & veggies for needed nutrients…we’ve got it all! Shop local, support local, & stay warm out there.
It’s going to get mighty cold this week, with night time temperatures in the lower 20s by mid-week. That kind of deep freeze is enough to kill off all but the hardiest veggie plants outdoors. We do have a number of growers who are harvesting now out of the passive solar hoop houses, so you will still see green beans, peppers, and cherry tomatoes for a while longer — perhaps even all winter long. The leafy greens don’t mind it outside, though, and they are really in their prime now, and will be for some time.
ALG operates year-round, even after all of the other area markets close, but there is one week we take off every year: the week of Thanksgiving. We will be open as usual the rest of November, so if there are things you’d like for your Thanksgiving meals, you’ll need to plan ahead and order them early. Naturally, I’ve get asked if I know of any local growers with turkeys available. We have in years past had ALG growers raising turkeys, but most everyone has stopped trying. Domestic turkeys, even heritage breeds, have a really hard time with the heat and humidities of our summers, and so take an enormous amount of labor to raise well. As the holiday gets closer, I may get a few leads on a handful of locally raised heritage turkeys, and if so, I’ll share them with you.
And thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.
All of these other markets are separate from ALG (including the Athens Farmers Market) but many growers sell at multiple markets. Please support your local farmers and food producers, where ever you’re able to do so!

“We grow fresh, you eat fresh”
During the torrid temperatures of September, a customer asked me whether I preferred deliveries in the 90 degree weather or the 30 degree temps of winter. I paused to answer because even though the heat was stifling and never ending, I abhor standing out in freezing temps. It looks like there will be some low temps in the teens on Tuesday night which is right before Wednesday delivery. No cause for panic since I purchased a box of 40 chauffe-mains (hand warmers). The brand is Little Hotties which I find a little obnoxious, so I use the French name of the product. They are securitate, naturel and inodoere. I am busy sewing pockets in my undergarments and socks so that I can be fully covered with the chauffe-mains.
THERE WILL BE NO FRESH HARVEST DELIVERY THANKSGIVING WEEK.
I plan to do my best to be up at the church for pick up until daylight savings time returns next spring.
There’s quite a nice selection of veggies this week including peppers, lettuce and kale. If something sells out that you want, just make a note in the Comment section and if more becomes available, you’ll be the first in line.
Bloomy Rind has Pimento Cheese and Cultured Butter as well as 8 other tasty items.
In the meat category, there is quite the selection of pork, beef, chicken and duck. If you need something for the holidays, let me know and I’ll see if Bear Creek or Wedge Oak will be able to have it for you.
Dozen Bakery will have pies and other wonderful items available for your Thanksgiving. You can check out the options at their website: https://www.dozen-nashville.com/thanksgiving-menu-2019
To order you can email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call them at: (615) 712-8150. Deadline for ordering is the Sunday before Thanksgiving.
Wedge Oak Farm will have a limited number of turkeys available for Thanksgiving. These are locally grown heritage turkeys. You will need to pick them up at their farm in Lebanon or at the Richland Farmers’ Market. You can contact Wedge Oak for size and price at: email@example.com
Dozen Bakery’s galettes, cookies and breads, eggs, granola, honey, and coffee are all in abundance.
You have until Tuesday night to place your order.
Thanks for your support, and I will see you on Wednesday!
