ALFN Local Food Club: The Market Opens with a Vengeance!
Wow oh Wow Community,
So much good stuff to report…
The Market has opened with a vengeance. But if this is vengeance, than I’ll take a second serving.
Crimmins Family Farm is back up with loads of organics greens, lettuces, and root veggies. We’re always so happy when Crimmins shows back up.
Ratchford Farms just brought goat meat back to our market. Take it from me, folks: give goat a chance. It is a deliciously complex and rich meat. Between that and McSwain Ranch’s lamb, we’re sitting in the fabled catbird seat. Or cloven-hoofed seat.
Plants n’ Seedlings. I was at Home Depot yesterday, in the garden section. Everyone in line, taking home those sad garden variety seedlings. A depressing sight, in comparison to us buying beautiful, healthy plants from local growers.
Don’t forget about Kent Walker’s Artisan Cheese: the stuff is amazing and provides a happy companion to lettuces!
ALFN Local Food Club: ALFN Totes, T-shirts, & non GMO chicken feed
As part of our continuing initiative to Spread the Word, we are ordering canvas totes and organic cotton t-shirts with our logo.
The totes will be a long handled heavy canvas large tote and will cost only $10.00.
T-shirts are organic cotton and available in Adult sizes (S, M, L, XL) in natural, pale yellow, light blue, pink, green, and red. Check out the Adult sizes & colors here. If you preorder, we can also order Ladies sizes (S, M, L, XL) in the same colors. Check out the Ladies sizes here.
We will be selling these organic cotton shirts for only $15.00!
Please respond to this email to preorder with the size and color preference. I will assume Adult unless you specify Ladies. This will help determine how many of each size and color to get and there is no need to prepay. We’ll be ordering 36 to start unless lots of folks respond. Also XXL and larger are available although there is an extra cost.
Got chickens? Are you interested in non GMO chicken feed? We are working to get GMO free chicken feed (layer, starter, grower, scratch) in 50 lb bags. Please email Dwayne if you are interested!
Thanks and have an awesome week!
Russellville Community Market: The Market is Open!
We certainly hope you were able to enjoy the absolutely beautiful weather on Friday and Saturday! Unfortunately, Sunday isn’t treating us quite as nicely, but that’s how it goes! I know I was definitely out grilling and working in the garden yesterday! How about you?
On the market this week are plenty of greens, everything from arugula and collard to kale and spinach. Be sure to get your hands on these ASAP!
Also, I know I’m gearing up for grilling season, and RCM has no shortage of meat! Every cut you could think of, and all kinds of ground meats like beef, buffalo, and elk! I think those bratwursts would look amazing on top of your grill! :)
Bluff Top is back this week after being off last week. Be sure to welcome her back with orders!
Also, a quick survey question: Would you be interested in being able to use a credit/debit card to pay for your order, even if it meant a small processing fee?
We want YOUR feedback on this possible addition to RCM, and whether you think it is a good idea or not. If you have an opinion or want to let us know what you think, please respond to this email, or drop us a line at our Facebook page (link below). Thanks everyone!
