New Field Farm's Online Market:  Peas and more.


Greetings,

You may not be tempted to think about eating, let alone cooking, in this heat, but it’s supposed to be in the 70s on Saturday so try to imagine cooler weather when you order this week.

This is challenging weather for plants as well as people, but the crops are hanging in there so far. Three more days to go! Here’s a partial update.

Peas – Shell peas are abundant and of great quality this year. I picked almost 2 bushels this morning. I’ll pick again for Friday.* If you want peas today or tomorrow just email (or call 878-2063) the amount you want and when you would pick them up (at the farm, no drop off at Union Mill mid-week)). Price is $4/lb. OR $3/lb. for 10 lbs. or more.

Snap peas – These are also doing well and we should have some for Friday as long as they hang in there through the heat.

Squash – This is not cranking out like you think it would in the heat (too hot?) so ask for it and we’ll probably be able to provide some.

Peppers – These are starting to ripen in the greenhouse and are slowly sizing up in the field.

Tomatoes – The greenhouse tomatoes are also beginning to ripen so we should have some of those this week.

Blueberries – The berries are beginning to turn and we’ll be open next Wednesday for u-pick. Hours will be Wed. to Sun. 8 – 5 for the season.

Eggplant – We should be able to begin offering these next week.

Lettuce – This is still recovering from the deer damage so the offering is limited, but we sow every ten days so more is on the way.

Garlic – This looks much better than last year when it grew in mud for much of the spring. Harvest is about a month away.

Onions – Will these be as big and abundant as last year? They look good so far.

Ginger – This is a very slow growing crop, but between the heat and frequent irrigation at least it may think it’s still in Hawaii where the seed plants came from.

I hope everyone is coping with the heat. This, too, shall pass!

Thank you for your orders.

Tim

Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm


hopefully same width in all browsers since I used percent. —>



Manchester Locally Grown market





We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.

Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening.

It seems as though every week, someone says, “I meant to order last week, but forgot till about 9:45.” Well, that’s fine, for two reasons:

1. Every single order placed before I close the market will be filled, unless the farmers run out of some items; and

2. I never close the market at 10:00 sharp. It just doesn’t happen (and to those who know me, that comes as no surprise.) It may be closer to midnight before it gets turned off. However, it’s better not to put off ordering, because some items may be sold out.

Lastly, remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda

Market News

Happy Independence Day week to everyone out there! Wednesday is the day we celebrate our independence from the tyranny of a king, but it’s also a great occasion to think about our independence from all sorts of things. Your support of Athens Locally Grown greatly helps the cause of food independence for our community, for starters. Did you know that, on average, American farmers receive only nine cents out of every dollar that gets spent on food? By the time you take out the cut of the processors, the distributors, the wholesalers, and so forth, only 9% is left for the farm. And of course, they’ve got to try to meet all of the expenses of running a farm with that money, and pretty much the only way to do that is by consolidating the farmland into huge “corporate” farms that can get by with the economies of scale. The farms might be independent family-owned enterprises on paper, but they’re beholden to all of those other interests that control the other 91% of the food dollar. Here at Athens Locally Grown, the growers keep 90% of every dollar, turning small, truly family owned and operated farms into viable businesses. That fosters variety for you, provides a sustainable use of our community’s green space, and helps in no small way Athens be a more self-reliant community.

For you, too, these growers and their products let you become independent from the corporate grocer, who is told by the corporate office in Cincinnati or Bentonville or Asheville what they can and can’t stock and who they can source their produce from. You’re given the freedom to choose who grows and produces your food and how they grow and produce it. If you don’t like one grower’s products or methods, you have a hundred others, all located right here, to choose from.

And of course by sourcing your food so close to home, you don’t have to be reliant on an overtaxed and under-vigilant inspection system to make sure your food is safe. The government at all levels actively tries to reduce your ability to choose where your food comes from in the name of safety, so not everything is rosy. Sometimes the regulations are warranted, but often the rules put in place are easy for corporate farms but extremely difficult for small farmers to meet. Our fight for independence is an ongoing one, and your voice in support of the small local producer does get heard.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!
