Upcoming Schedule

After talking with our growers we’ve made the hard decision to continue with a bi-weekly schedule for the foreseeable future. As much as we love hanging out and visiting with everyone in the Market Shed on beautiful fall days, some of the setbacks our growers have experienced kind of kill the purpose for being there at all. It’s no fault of anything or any person – just the ups and downs of farming.

So . . . this is what things look like through the end of 2023:

Order September 16-19 for pickup Friday, September 22
Skip a Week
Order Sept. 30 – October 3 for pickup Friday, October 6

Saturday, October 7 – Dothan Nurseries Fall Festival!

JBW FARM FRESH:It is crazy to think that fall is right around the corner! We are counting down the days to September 23, the first official day of Fall. We are excited for several reasons.

First, any chance of cooler weather makes us very happy and our animals!

Second, we will be planning several days where we are going to invite the community to come on out and visit the farm! Cooler weather=more enjoyable experience.
Third, we will be launching a Fall Collection of soaps and lotions! This is something we have been working towards for a while, and we promise, these scents will not disappoint! Stay tuned for more updates and pictures!

MOUNT MORIAH FARMS:  The last two weeks have been pretty busy around here. We just expanded our chicken coop to add 33 more hens into the poultry family. They are all getting along well. We also added four more rabbits, they are silver Foxes. So we now have Silver Fox rabbits and rex rabbits! The goal is to be as self-sustaining as we can be. It is so easy to rely on the grocery stores for our food but the more aware I become of what is actually in the food sold, the more I want to dedicate time towards teaching myself to really rely on the land. While i was milking the goats this morning i couldn’t help but to be jealous of my goats, they really don’t have much to do. I feel like I have a never ending to-do list. Then the thought hit me, I don’t believe God ever intended us to be as busy as we are. So i am purposing to be less busy and really look at my priorities. Do I have them out of order? I challenge y’all to be as purposeful in your day as you can, enjoy your life. It is a beautiful Gift from God.

Connie's Cornucopia:  New Milk Supplier

We are happy to add Mountain Fresh Creamery to our Website. Check out their milk.

Here is a little about them:

At Mountain Fresh Creamery and Glo-Crest Dairy, we are dedicated to our cows’ comfort and health 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We milk around 210 Holstein cows, twice a day, every day on our 100 acre farm. Our cows are never given any growth hormones or rBST. We also believe in healthy cows, so if a cow does happen to get sick and needs antibiotics, we will give them. However, the treated cow’s milk will be dumped until after her withdraw time period and until her milk no longer has any trace of antibiotics. Approximately 60% of our herd is registered, and we have plans to be 100% registered by 2020.

Our cows spend part of each day grazing in our lush pastures. What goes into the cow affects what comes out, so we make sure our cows have fresh water at all times and a balanced, healthy diet. Although the cows love grazing outside in the pasture, Nutritionist Ron Arp carefully balances the cows’ vitamin and mineral needs to ensure they receive the highest quality feed as well. During the hot Georgia summers, the cows enjoy hanging out by the fans to keep cool. They’re treated like family because they are!

Milk quality is our #1 priority at Glo-Crest Dairy, and the practices we have in place to care for our cows has captured our farm the “Cream of the Crop” award each year since 2004!


Brassell’s Sprouts Market:  09/13/23

Thank you for shopping local!

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of Sept 10 2023

Here’s what the harvest table looked like last week:

Here’s a customer’s CSA basket.

We’ve got some super fennel bulbs this week. Haven’t cooked with fennel? You can slice like an onion and eat it raw. You can steam it whole or sliced as a vegetable. The fronds make a nice garnish or topping on a salad.

The new season crops are going in, some already to the harvestable size, like young kale, lettuce and arugula.

The subscription plan “Let Me Be Your Farmer” is up and running. Pay in advance for 3 months purchases of veg, fruit, eggs, meats and ___, and get 10% off. The farm benefits from a more secure customer commitment and has cashflow to buy inputs like seed and nutrient. You get the choicest items for your basket, a la carte. Typically I’d expect $1500 to $2000 per quarter.
Sign up with an email to me.

Summer Harvest Baskets: Some of you paid by installment so we’re at the mid-point, next time please plan on paying the second half, 10 weeks at $32. Thank you.

What we have now: arugula, apples, blackberries, celery, frilly kale, Nero kale, Rainbow chard, Tokyo Bekana, chinese cabbage, beets, bell peppers, sweet bulb onions, fennel, garlic, baby lettuce mix, baby buttercrunch lettuce, rhubarb, carrots, collards, cabbage collards, leeks, basil and herbs.

Surf to the online store " to place your order. Store pick up Thurs 4 to 6 or by arrangement. *

Healthy eating,
