Citrus County Locally Grown:  HAPPY NEW YEAR

Wishing ALL our you a
Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous
With the Holidays behind us we are “getting back to normal”. However one New Year’s resolution that I am keeping in mind is to eat healthier in 2013.
Our Growers go out their way to bring value to the products they offer. While nutrition and taste are always improved, most times at lower cost than store purchased items.

3 Rock Farm
They continue to expand their offering. Thank you, Amy.

Rise and Shine Bread
The Whole Wheat bread was described to me as “awesome” Personally I find it has a very delicate flavor compared to other breads of a similar nature. Well done Stephanie.

Florida Fresh Meat Company
Known for their local, naturally raised meats, which are hormone and antibiotic free, FFMC distributes across The State of Florida. Recently a restaurant in the Miami area scored 27 out of 30 on the Zagatt rating for a Hamburger using FFMC’s ground beef. Consider using FFMC ground beef when you next make beef patties. With the increased flavor a smaller patty delivering a satisfying meal. Make 6 from a 1lb pack of FFMC Ground Beef.

Your Market is just over 1 year old and we look forward to new growers joining us and an expanded product offering.
From all of us at Citrus County Locally Grown, THANK YOU for your support in the past year.

See you at pickup on Thursday.

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm Week of Jan 6 2013

Order online at

Special on pastured ground beef this week; I’m offering 15% off the listed price. Good for sauces, patties, soups and casseroles.

Vegetable selection is finally shrinking, but still have greens and potatoes. Carrots have been slow to come to market size, so I’m holding off.

I still need lots of egg cartons, so please ask your neighbours to save for you and bring along to the farm.

Have you been following the Aerotropolis controversy? OMB hearings have started, to convert 4500 acres of farmland to industrial lands, on the premise that Hamilton doesn’t have enough vacant factory space and the airport/highway network will bring employment. Have you noticed what impact of energy/climate/world economy is having on investment decisions? High uncertainty leads to ‘wait and see’ investors. Maybe we need the farmland more than empty factory space.
Residents can get an update on the OMB dispute on Wednesday Jan 9th at 6 pm at a city hall meeting organized by the Hamilton Civic League. The OMB hearings are open to the public and are taking place in the Albion Room of the Convention Centre starting Monday, January 14 at 10 am.

Green Pasture

Today is the last day to order Green Pasture products. If you have not done so already, please get your order in by 7:00 this evening. We have reached our quota on butter oil products but there is no limit on cod liver oil, skate liver oil, coconut oil, ghee, or skin care. I will let you know via email once the order has arrived. You can drop by the following Thursday between 3:00pm and 7:00pm or contact me to schedule another time to pick up.

(Green Pasture products are listed in The Market under the category GROUP BUYS)

Mother Earth Meats

The next Mother Earth Meats delivery is Saturday, January 26 (exact time TBD). This time around we will try using our new co-op website to place orders. No more paper order forms to fill out or Excel files to email. All of the Mother Earth Meats products will be available online in The Market starting Friday. You will get an email with more details Friday morning when the Market opens (a day earlier than normal). All meat orders must be submitted by Monday, January 14 at 7:00pm.

Plattsburgh Online Ordering:  Farmer Market online orders

Weather forecast for tomorrow looks great for harvesting spinach (unless the subzero did more damage than expected). The salad mix has too much damage, but should regrow nicely once we get enough sunny weather that I can trim it down to get rid of the yucky leaves.

I think we have all enjoyed the change of pace, but have kept busy. I spent the week after last market designing brochures and flyers. Last week was spent updating the website so it would be ready when the flyers and brochures went out. If you have a place to post a flyer or brochures, or people you think would be interested in Rehoboth Homestead’s summer CSA, please be sure and pick up a supply. It will helps us GREATLY. I suspect Woven Meadows would appreciate similar help getting the word out about their CSA.

Hope to see you Saturday!
