Magney Legacy Ridge Farm:  Winter CSA #4


Dear CSA-ers,

Can you feel it? Spring is coming. Daffodils are starting to poke up out of the Earth and though we’re still feeling cold temperatures, the swelling tree buds and prolific birdsong suggest that winter will be winding down soon. Through our winter interim period we will continue to offer the craft your own CSA at (https://magneyfarm.locallygrown.net/market). For those of you who wish to receive the preassembled CSA, this week’s will feature: Caraflex Cabbage, Lovelock Lettuce, Spring Mix, Swiss Chard, Mustards and Green Onions.

This week we will begin Spring seeding on the farm. This is when we get our starter plants growing so that we can hit the ground running for Spring and Summer. We are also putting together the final details on how this year’s CSA will be modeled and sold. Like last year, we intend to offer a pricing discount for a whole season buy-in. So far we are pleased with the new system for building custom orders. If you, as our customers and extended team members, have any ideas or input regarding how you want CSA to work, now is the time to contact us! We love hearing from you, and your perspective helps us to build a better service.

A crop we will begin offering this week is our Caraflex Cabbage. Caraflex is a cone-shaped cabbage, of more modest proportions than that of a traditional round cabbage. The texture is tender and the flavor sweet. These traits will be all the better having come through such a cold winter. Caraflex is great for making cabbage wraps, eaten boiled, or used in soups. In general, cabbage is excellent for one’s digestive health as it is rich in dietary fiber with a low glycemic index.

As always, we thank you for your generous support of our farm. Please reach out if you have any suggestions as to how we can better serve you through our CSA program! We want to grow a strong and healthy community here in Western Kentucky, and it’s you who help us to do so!

Sincerely,
The Magney Legacy Ridge Farm Team

Champaign, OH:  Wish You Were Here


Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail…
(Wish You Were Here-Pink Floyd)

It’s dreary, I’m in one of those lazy Sunday hazes, and I’ve got acoustic Pink Floyd in the background.

Snow is predicted, and I’m all about just staying in, getting my market orders in, and not worrying about the rest of the week, or my weekly food. I love how easy this market makes the week!

If you are feeling as lazy as I feel, today, why not just lazily put in your order? We’ve been doing the food pick up gig way before the big box places started. And, there is no additional fee to use our market. And, you get the smiles and humor of your market managers, all while grabbing the local goodness, and keeping your hard earned money in our lovely local economy. Everyone wins from producer to consumer to the community to the local economy.

All that, just to say…wish you were here, if you have not already placed your order for the week…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Conway, AR:  Tamales! Opening Bell: Buffalo, Kale, Lettuce, Beef!


Good afternoon!

This Friday we’ll have Doña Estela’s amazing homemade Tamales! She will make them Friday morning and have them at market Friday afternoon. They will be 5 for $7 in 3 flavors: Pork, Chicken, or Jalapeño & Cheese. To place an order, please add a note to your CLG order, or text me at 501-339-1039. Delicious with sides of re-fried beans and rice, topped with a bit of salsa and sour cream.

Don’t let this cold, wet weather get you down. Plan to grill something for dinner soon. Bar C has some delicious Bratwurst and Pork products, all of which become life changing with some BBQ Sauce from Cedar Rock Ridge (special recipe featuring organic smoked jalapenos). Taste test this Friday: I will have tater tots ready for dipping into this zesty, life-altering sauce! Also, Buffalo steaks are back in stock from Ratchford Farms.

Stones River Market:  Market is OPEN - Sweetheart Week


Market is OPEN…it’s Sweetheart Week, enjoy a special day with that special person and enjoy some of what the Market has to offer this week ranging from Scrubs, Creole items, Teas, Breads, Dried Fruit and Nuts, Mixes, variety of meats.

News from our Growers:

Welcome back The Krafty Kupboard: Hummus, Granola, Gluten Free Chili Mix, Pancake Mix, Dressing Mix, to name a few things available this week.

The Creole Diva: Camellia Red Beans and Rice, Creole Jambalaya, Dirty Rice along with Cajun Salt Free Seasonings and Creole Seasoning will warm your ‘heart’ this week. Top off your special meal with Ma Maws Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce, Sweet Potato Pie or Creole Cushaw Pie!

Flying S Farms: Save $1 when you buy 2 dozen of our Free Range Chicken Eggs, for each addition dozen another $1.00 egg! Price will be adjusted at delivery. Buy even more..and save more!

Few Carrots and Butterkin and Kabocha Squash are still available.

CS3 Farm: Try their Herbal Power Balls are made from almond butter, sesame butter, cocoa powder, coconut, einkorn flour, and rolled oats flavored with local honey and selected adaptogenic herbs.

Elderberry Einkorn Muffin Not your light and fluffy muffin, these are hearty. Not only do these muffins contain immune-boosting elderberries — they are made with Einkorn Flour! The elderberries come from the syrup-making process, and include some honey, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger residue.

Chocolate and Flowers Valentine Herbal Tea Get your valentine (or yourself) this blend of cacao husks with roses and hibiscus flowers, with a sweet and healthy-heart treat that is naturally delicious.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s spring, or at least the daffodils at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse think it is. I believe I’ve seen some red, red robins bobbin’ around among them too, but I’m sorry that I can’t add any of those to this year’s bouquets. I will have a limited number of daffodil bouquets available this week, and will do my best to fill all orders. But as always, the number of blooms available on Tuesdays is very weather-dependent. I’m actually thankful for the cooler weather, as 40’s and 50’s will prolong bloom a lot better than 60’s and 70’s. I’m hoping to have blooms for three weeks, so I suggest that you order early and often. If there are any unfilled orders this week, I will ask if you want me to fill your order next week instead. Enjoy this early breath of spring, as they smell so sweet inside your home!

You know spring is almost here when you see the primroses, pulmonarias, and woodland phlox beginning to show their colors. To tell the truth, these guys are jumping the gun just a wee bit, but we’re very happy to be able to add them back to the market. You know we’re still likely to get an ice storm sometime during February. Be sure to cover these beauties with a bedsheet or move to an unheated garage if the weather turns cold and/or nasty.

See you “On the Porch” at Quinn’s Mercantile Wednesday February 13th from 5:00 – 6:30pm, please contact me if you are unable to make delivery or are running late, please phone, email or text me so we can make arrangements to get your order to you.

Deb Wittig of Knottynuffacres will be off the market for a few more weeks.

The pork products from Sow’s Ear Piggery will be unavailable this week, but Andra hopes to return next week.

Weaver Farms meats are unavailable this week only.

Hope for Health products will be off the market for a few more weeks.


I have enjoyed many products from this market, but there are two I’d like to comment on: portobello mushrooms from Frontier Family Farms and elbows and knees from Triple T Farm.

The mushrooms are over the top fresh and delicious. I stuffed them with tuna, 3 cheeses, and herbs. My dad deemed the dish “gourmet”.

The knees and elbows from Triple T make superior bone broth. Easy to make, just add water, herbs, and spices and let it simmer for a few to several days. Use it as a soup base, to make gravy, or better yet cook a Triple T roast in it. Nutritious and delicious, without a doubt!
