Champaign, OH:  Asparagus!!!


Here it is!

Beth, of Harrigan’s Harvest, just sent this update!

I will have it for Thursday’s market but won’t know quantity until approximately 8pm tomorrow when I harvest for the first time after school. I made it available on the market but only put 10 # for quantity – pretty sure they’ll be a lot more available and will change the # tomorrow night.

You can begin ordering!!

Remember that the season is short, the quantities go quickly, and it is such a seasonal treat!!

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Miami County Locally Grown:  Studebaker's breads; marinated chicken drums; plants...


Shop here

Thank you everyone for supporting our local market tonight! We lucked out and dodged the rain and storms for the most part – until all the vendors were packing up that is, then it let loose just in time for everyone to get soaked. Oh well…all in the name of supporting easy access to local food, right?

Studebaker “History in the Baking” is back on the market after a bit of time off – it’s a good thing too… we were certainly missing her sourdough and other delicious baked goods. And King’s has a new item – marinated chicken drums. Sounds like an easy, toss-on-the-grill type of meal!

The Wednesday Market:  The Wednesday Market is Open!


Good afternoon.

The Wednesday Market is open for orders. Please place your order by 10 p.m. Wednesday. See the website for this week’s product offerings. Here is the link: https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

The 1st Annual Basic Agriculture Commodities Expo was held at Pike County 9th Grade Academy. Students were the teachers that evening as the community came out to learn about Georgia’s agriculture commodities in hands-on, fun, and interactive ways. Teams of young people were stationed throughout the school’s cafeteria, and each group shared facts and figures about one of our state’s commodities as attendees visited their tables.

According to 2020 data from The Center for Agribusiness & Economic Development at the University of Georgia, these are the Top 10 Georgia Commodities, in order of value:
p=. Broilers – $3 billion
Cotton – $727.8 million
Peanuts – $678 million
Beef – $663.4 million
Timber – $649.8 million
Greenhouse – $566.2 million
Corn – $358.1 million
Blueberries – $304.2 million
Dairy – $297 million
Hay – $291.2 million

Here are some pictures of our young people in action.

Many of the students who presented at the Expo are active in the local FFA and 4-H programs. To these talented and eager young people, I say keep up the good work! The world needs farmers like you.

To our customers, thank you for supporting Georgia Grown, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly
