Miami County Locally Grown:  Spinach, Eggs, and Monarchs, oh My!!


The Miami County Park District offered a fantastic program this summer for young kids, all about Protecting the Pollinators, at the Piqua Public Library…

My kids loved it, and were then inspired, when we were harvesting Milkweed pods, to offer the seeds to their “Market friends” :-)

Beautiful favorites of many pollinators, including the American Monarch, we’ll have Milkweed seeds available for anyone interested at pick-up!!

This week the Market sees the return of Simple Living Farm’s Spinach, and next week their sweet Carrots will be back!!

More Eggs are available this week, even though the hens’ production is dropping, whether from the cold, the diminishing sunlight, or this being the time for them to molt (and when they lose their feathers, they don’t lay eggs!! Ah!!

And 6635 StudeBaker has a new loaf this week… Pizza Crust Bread! Great toasted for mini pizzas :-)

Lake Placid Online Farmer's Market:  October Market


Hello everyone,

I just returned yesterday late evening from my grandmother’s funeral, so apologies for not sending a message sooner. Friday was supposed to be the day the market opened, but I have not heard from the farmers about continuing, so I did not want to open it without knowing for sure that we would have it. When I hear back from them I will send out a notice.

Thank you for your patience and I hope to be back in touch soon.

Thank you,
Christie

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Some honey and spinach


Greetings,

The honey was extracted yesterday and we can offer some in 1/2 pound jars this week. The initial limit is one jar per household, but if you want more please ask in the comments section and we’ll provide if there’s extra. Any honey not ordered or asked for this week will be offered next week.

As for a bulk order, there isn’t much bulk to be had this season, except for potatoes, ginger, some garlic, and maybe a few onions and cabbage. Whatever is available next week will be discounted.

The deer pawed off the row cover from the remaining carrots in the field and ate every last one. There weren’t that many, but it was still an unwelcome surprise. I have a few in the cooler from last week, but that’s all that remains. It’s strange and unusual not to have bulk carrots for the winter. And sad.

We can make another harvest of spinach (if the deer don’t get it first!), as well as salad mix, arugula, and some lettuce from the greenhouse.

We’ve had a light frost and may get a freeze Thursday night. I know the season is winding down when I walk in the cooler and think for a second that the compressor isn’t working cause it feels so warm.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments as we wrap up the season.

Enjoy a few days of sun!

Tim

Champaign, OH:  Intro to new vendors, Kennedy Farms?


Kennedy Farms is a small-scale farm run by two people, who are dedicated to growing, and raising food in a sustainable humane way. The farm is solar powered, and off grid. Over the past 3 years we have lovingly built a flourishing farm eco-system that includes our animals, bees, flowers, vegetables and wild inhabitants. We go beyond using organic methods in our quest to build an example of a sustainable agriculture system that is kind to the environment, and works with the existing eco-system, rather than trying to change it to suit our purpose and needs. If you see it in our market booth, we raised it with our own two hands without the use of heavy machinery.

Your support is what we depend on for the future of our farm, and the planet we all share. Recently, we have received lots of questions about our farm, and thought that you the consumer would like to know more about what we do, how we do it, and how that compares to other producers. If you buy from us at market you are getting the very best that we have to offer, and we are always working to do better!

At Kennedy Farms all of our hens live a life in the sunshine on green pastures. We rotationally graze our ladies using two large mobile chicken coops. They are an important part of our farm eco-system. Pecking and scratching through our pasture helps maintain the area for our other animals, and their rich manure is about all the fertilizer our plants need. They get up to 25% of their diet from our pasture, and we feed them a NON GMO supplemental feed to keep them healthy and happy.

We welcome our newest vendors!!
