Dawson Local Harvest:  Gluten-free Tastes Great!


Dawson Local Harvest for Feb. 24th

Gluten-free Tastes Great!

HI EVERYONE!

The Dawson Local Harvest is very fortunate to have a fantastic Gluten-free Baker in MY DAILY BREAD! For those of you who have a gluten intolerance this is wonderful news, but it’s not necessary to have that intolerance to be able to enjoy what are some truly excellent (and tasty) products like their Gluten-free Glorious Morning Muffins (order this only if you love organic apples, carrots, coconut and walnuts in a breakfast muffin!).

And you don’t even have to be human to enjoy DAILY BREAD. Your dog will absolutely love their Cheeseburger Dog Treats!

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 7pm.

You’ll find the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST at http://dawsonville.locallygrown.net

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! We guarantee your satisfaction with all products in the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST.

Have a happy and healthy week!

The Wednesday Market:  Happy Sunday! Place Your Orders Now


Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Monday. Orders are ready for pick up between 3 and 6 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for details on this week’s product offerings. Here is the link: https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

This week we welcome Terrace Micro Farms to the Market. Bob and Kelli Hurd describe themselves as “two young people who raise chickens right outside of the Zebulon city limits.” They have about 250 chickens in their flock. The fowl have a nice home where they have full access to grass all day and a safe coop to sleep in at night. The types of chickens at Terrace Micro Farms include Marans, Buff Orpingtons, Araucanas, and White Rocks. Currently they have a variety of medium and large sized brown and green/blue eggs for sale to the community.

Warm weather, indeed Springlike weather, is forecast for this week. Are you enjoying the mild winter we are having? A lack of cold weather is not necessarily good news to Georgia’s farmers. If you are interested in learning more, here is a link to an article by Clint Thompson of the University of Georgia, published by AGFAX: https://agfax.com/2017/02/09/georgia-warm-winter-temps-spark-fears-of-potential-plant-diseases/

Is this warm weather making you anxious to start planting a summer garden? In the same article cited above, UGA Agricultural Climatologist Pam Knox provides this caution: "One thing we do know from this kind of weather pattern is that the chance of a late frost goes up since the atmosphere often swings more wildly than usual between cold and warm episodes. So don’t get too anxious to start planting if we have a warm spell because a cold wave could be just down the pike.”

To everything, there is a season. I am looking forward to the REAL spring! Until then, thank you for your support of locally grown agriculture and for choosing to purchase locally.

We’ll see you at the Market!

Thanks,

Beverly
