Northeast Georgia Locally Grown:  Locally Grown - Availability for March 27th, 2012

Hey Local Food Lovers,

I’ve got a couple of things to plug this week. First off, is Sylvan Falls Mills is offering their chocolate easter eggs again this year, and I have to say if you like seasonal sweets, you’ve got to try ‘em. They are scrumptious! It’s nice to have a few guilty pleasures that you can only enjoy a few weeks of the year.

Last week I really enjoyed the fresh beets and greens from Ronnie Mathis and Mountain Earth Farms. I roasted the roots, quartered, drizzled with salt, oil and water and then covered with foil on 400 for about 35-40 minutes. The greens I sauteed with garlic and olive oil. I had leftover beets so the next day I cut them into chunks and put them on a microgreen salad with balsamic vinegar and a splash of pomegrantate juice. I didn’t have any goat cheese so a little fresh grated parmesan was a nice substitute.

We’re still looking for an occasional VOLUNTEER for Locally Grown! If you’re looking to get more involved in local foods this year let us know as we could really use the help once or twice a month for just two hours. In addition to the small food stipend, you’ll be rewarded by getting more engaged with local food and farms in 2013, making new friends and learning a ton!

And speaking of local food and farms in 2013, our Georgia Mountains Farmers Network is once again organizing a TOUR of FARMS for June 15th and June 16th. It’s early yet so just reserve these dates on your calendar.

And if you know of businesses or organizations who would like to sponsor the event feel free to forward them the PDF link below. We hope to make this event a part of what Northeast Georgia is known for. And super thanks to Simply Homegrown and Duane Hartness with State Farm Insurance for being our very first two sponsors. We’ll be taking sponsors through April 15th so help spread the word quick!


That’s it for tonight. Don’t forget to

The market

The market is open and remember the FFA Plant Sales starts this week at Newton County High School. It will be at the green house behind the new Career Academy. The plants are a result of the FFA classes and their hard work. All the proceeds benefit the schools ag program.

The much needed rain has taken away all the losses in our neighborhood lakes. It has also helped all our spring seeds sprout. Look for some new baby veggies this week along with all your favorites.

We will be getting milk this week.

Don’t forget to reserve your half hog. They will not be available for much longer.

Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts. We enjoy being your farmers.

Plattsburgh Online Ordering:  online ordering open

Goose eggs
Duck eggs
Fresh spinach
Mild and tangy salad mixes
Great pork from Asgaard
Parker Maple products

We are getting low on veggies, and some aren’t as pretty as they were so I don’t like to sell them “sight unseen” in case they don’t meet your expectations. In other words, there will be more at the last farmers market on the 13th. But, to get you through till them, we have a good assortment for very earliest spring.

Oh, and eggs. I have held some back to age for easier hard boiled peeling. If you want those instead of the absolutely fresh, make a note.

You may pick up your orders at Rehoboth Homestead Friday or I will deliver into Plattsburgh for a $3 delivery fee.

Enjoy the sunshine.
