May 16th, 2013

Dear Market Customer,

Beautiful spring weather has firmly taken hold and summertime is quickly approaching. That means it’s a great time to take advantage of all the wonderful local and nutrient-dense products Gwinnett County farmers have to offer.

Rancho Alegre Farm is proud to feature locally grown products, and if we haven’t told you lately, we appreciate all our market’s customers!


Here’s a quick update on what we’ve been up to:

We had a great class this past Friday on using essential oils to alleviate stress and anxiety. Essential oils have a wide range of uses, from skin treatments to green cleaning products. Due to a large amount of interest in this great topic, we’re going to continue this free class on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. Come join us!

Our volunteers are the best! The group of volunteers working in the garden at Rancho Alegre Farms is headed by two very experienced gardeners, so if you’re interested in sharing your expertise or learning some new tricks we’d love to have you add to our enthusiastic group. No matter what your experience level is, let us know if you’d like to join in the fun!

"Why is there such a big difference in the sizes and colors of your eggs?" We’ve been hearing that question a lot lately at Rancho Alegre Farms, so we thought we’d try to put that to rest here: We have several different vendors that provide us eggs, and they all have different breeds of hens of varying ages. Some vendors provide mostly brown eggs and some provide mostly white eggs. Also, as chickens grow older, they begin to grow larger eggs. But don’t worry, they are all good eggs!

Attention horse and livestock owners: Johnston Family Farms has hay! Horse-quality oat hay rolls (4×5 ft.) are available for $40 for pick-up in Newborn. Russell Johnston guarantees the hay is free of weeds and says his crew can deliver if you can’t make it to Newborn.

From Mimi’s Mountain Home is dropping back to every-other-week participation in our Gwinnett Locally Grown farmers market. Make sure you order From Mimi’s Mountain Home’s selection now for pick-up the week after next.
