Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market:  Weblog Entry

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Christmas baking has begun here on the farm bakery! I have cutout kits for those who want to decorate, but not go through the effort of baking.
If you have an event and need something special, jus let me know. In the past I have done appetizer platters, side dishes and specialty pastries for Christmas parties. There are also baskets and Gift Certificates that make great gifts.
This week we will head over to Buckeye Creek to pick up freshly ground GRITS! There wasn’t a harvest last year so we are excited to see them again this year!!! I will add to the market once I pick them up.
The farmstand will get a Christmas update later this week and have Cookie Boxes available again.
Have a great week!

Frontier Farms:  MARKET IS OPEN

Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving, time to get back to eating healthy for a week or so.

Market will be open till noon on Tuesday

Middle Tennessee Locally Grown:  The Market Is Open for Ordering!

Middle Tennessee Locally Grown market

will be open for your orders till Tuesday evening at 10 pm.

The market is open for ordering this week. I saw only a couple of new items this week, although admittedly, I may have missed some. And I’m very busy this week and next, making Christmas kissing balls and wreaths. So I’m not going to make a “real” newsletter this week, but this notice will have to do. Please share it with a friend and invite them to become a customer and share in all this local farm goodness.

Please be sure to place your order before 10 pm on Tuesday. Our farmers and bakers must have a full day to prepare your orders for market. Should you forget to order, shoot me a message and I will ask for – but not guarantee – a late order.

Country Road Homestead will be off the market for a couple months, till the early spring crops begin to come in. We will miss them, but there are not many veggies that can be grown in the open fields during a Tennessee winter.

Meanwhile, several other farmers will have a selection of winter vegetables available. Frontier Family Farm will have some hydroponic items, and CS3 Farms, Solace Farm, Wayne Diller, Valley View Farm & Garden, and Altamont Mennonites will also offer some variety. It’s harder, but not impossible, to eat a portion of your vegetables from local sources in winter.

Maybe you are tired of turkey altogether! We’ve got a great selection of beef right now, including sale prices on cuts from Spicer Farms.

Good afternoon.

Can you believe how quickly this year has passed? The holiday season is in full swing. I love this time of year because it reminds me of the special foods that my grandmother prepared for our family celebrations. Grandma’s house was the gathering place for our whole family. Nowadays my house is the spot where we meet. As I was cooking for Thanksgiving, I thought of Grandma and the activities she loved, including cooking and gardening. I try to follow her example of pouring love into every dish that I prepare. Grandma died when I was only 11 years old, but the lessons of love and hospitality she taught me, my mother, and my aunt live on. Even though the work we do to host our family events is long and hard, we love nothing more than to be surrounded by those we love and to see happiness on each face. As the holiday season unfolds, may you all experience love and joy with your loved ones.

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. We’ll see you at the Market.
