Greener Acres Farm:  NEW Product -- Peppermint Hydrosol


All NEW from Green"er" Acres Farm… We are now distilling our own essential oils from herbs grown on the farm. All herbs are herbicide and pesticide free. We use a steam distillation process to extract the oils from our plants. The by product of the distillation process provides us with what are known as hydrosols. It is the steam that is extracted with some of the properties of the plant material, meaning a less potent smell and flavor making it a safe alternative to essential oils. Can be used a fragrance or additive to natural, homemade home cleaning products or beauty products.

We will be posting a video of the distilling process with next week’s weblog.

Try yours today.

Market News

This week marks the equinox and the first official day of Summer. And right on cue, we’ve got a week full of sunny skies with temps up in the 90s. Should be a wonderful weekend for AthFest, even if it’s so, so hot. I got my first quart of blueberries this week, and promptly turned them into a pie, mixed with some ALG rhubarb I still had in my fridge from a few weeks ago. Turned out tasty enough that I just had pie for dinner last night. I just might finish it off before bed.

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!

Hello!

We’ve got it all this week! Great veggies, flowers, fruits – as well as our staple items of meats, eggs, fresh bakery bread, and honey!

This week we have the first blueberries from Blue Honey blueberry farm . These are just picked, organic blueberries from our trusted friends in Thompson Station, TN. Every year they have given us a great product, and we are excited for this blueberry season to kick in! Please let us know if the item is sold out and you would like some – put your request in the comments section and we will try to get you some!

It’s hot enough that the easy eating days are here, with lots of fresh chopped salads and out door grilling! We’ve also got the seasons first, fresh dug potatoes!

We know you have lots of options for buying local produce these days, and we are so grateful for your purchase of our local, organic produce and meats! We want you to be 100 percent pleased with your order, and we offer refunds or exchanges if you are not satisfied. We welcome your feedback as it helps us to be better at what we do!

We love all of our vendors – we like to think we offer the best of what Nashville has to offer! We have a wonderfully curated selection of local meats, eggs and of course cheese and baked goods.
