Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market:  Happy New Year!

Happy 2023! I am looking forward to “growing” this year in every way! I’ve already received over a hundred seed packets and am about to begin the planning stage of this year’s gardens! there will more coming this year like seedlings, baby chicks, flowers, herbs and veggies and of course my kitchen creations!

I decided to have a little fun for January and do Regional Cuisine Weeks. This week is France!

As always, thank you for returning containers! I am always looking for the “ball” type canning jars and lids, and take out plastic containers. I do not need small miscellaneous jars anymore though. I will try to update your account with credits for these, but please don’t hesitate to remind me ;)

The farm stand will remain closed until some time in February when it is warmer and the winter storms are over! Sadly, the arctic blast that came through did ruin our winter crops of broccoli, lettuce, kale, chard and arugula. I am hoping they grow back, but if there is no sign I will likely prep those beds for the next round of planting.

Be well!

Sow’s Ear Piggery: Rendered lard from Non-GMO, non-antibiotic pork back fat from free-range pig. We personally use daily in cooking and baking in place or oils or butter and have excellent cholesterol numbers.

This lard is “soft/smooth” directly from the fridge but can be used successfully for baking if the required amount is placed in the freezer for 20-30 minutes before being cut into your flour/dry ingredients.

There is plenty more fat back to offer more lard in the coming weeks, based on response.

Also, if a buyer returns the quart jar, I will offer a discounted price for future purchase of the same product.

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

COVID19: Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!*
