Local Farms First:  The Market is Open! Parsnips for Dessert?!



Greetings local food lovers!

The Market is Open!

Do you ever wish you could trick your loved ones and family into eating more vegetables? Now, you can!

We have parsnips on the market from Thistle Whistle and Abundant Life Farms and I’m tipping you off to a recipe for Parsnip Cake!

If carrots have a place in baked goods, why can’t parsnips?

Parsnips are an excellent source of fiber, folic acid and many more nutrients to put a spring in your step this season.

Thanks for supporting local family farms,

Suwanee Whole Life Co-op:  News: New Vendor, Coffee Roasting Open House and Group Buy Schedule


Hi Everyone!

Thank you to all the families that attended the Great Harvest Bakery Tour and Family Fun Day at the Farms! The bakery and farmers were so happy to put a face to the names they recognize every week from their orders. I’m thrilled you were able to see firsthand where your food comes from. It’s not every day that our kids have an opportunity to gather just laid eggs! We will definitely do some more events like this at our other farms in the future!



New Vendor- Molly’s Suds
I am very happy to welcome Monica Leonard with Molly’s Suds to our family of growers and vendors. She’s a mom, just like most of us that is concerned about all the chemicals our children exposed to and created Molly’s Suds Laundry Powder. Visit her website for more details www.mollyssuds.com

About Molly’s Laundry Powder:
128 loads $0.17 per load!
Enzyme Free Formula
Gluten-Free

Safe for High Efficiency Washers and front loaders. Be sure to add the powder directly to your laundry tub. It is not formulated for the dispenser cup, though it dissolves completely during the wash cycle.

Our fabulous free flowing powder is perfume and dye free. Ultra concentrated. Use only 1 Tablespoon (scoop included) per load. Safe and fabulous on cloth diapers! Cloth diaper wash cycle does require the use of more than the standard 1 Tablespoon scoop.

No SLS/SLES, no phosphates, no petrochemicals, no formaldehyde, no parabens, no 1,4 dioxane, no EDTA, no Diethanolamines, no synthetic surfactants, no PEG, no NPE’s.

Safe for high efficiency machines. Biodegradable. Certified Vegan and Cruelty Free. Human and Pet Safe.

Great for those with extremely sensitive skin and cloth diapers as well. If you are at all conscious about what you put on your skin- remember laundry detergent is very toxic to humans and our earth. Our Laundry Powder is gentle to both you and the planet.

Ingredients: Proprietary blend of sodium carbonate from the Green River Basin in Wyoming, sodium bicarbonate, epsom salt (epsomite) and sea salt. While there are no perfumes, which are neurotoxic and petroleum based, there is a very minimal amount of organic peppermint essential oil.
