Grower Notes


Sustainable eating is about choosing foods that are healthful to our environment AND our bodies. It’s about nourishing ourselves wholly and completely. Providing pleasure but preserving the food system for the future. It leads to healthy, thriving, individuals and communities, as well as a better, more balanced ecosystem.

I am a raving fan of eating sustainable. Not only do I practice it myself, but I provide sustainable, whole ingredients in what I prepare for my clients. Being a part of the Market at Dothan and the local farming community is such a vital part of what I do and who I am as an individual, business owner, and a citizen of the Wiregrass area.

I anxiously look forward to picking up my weekly finds and preparing my recipes for the week both for myself and for my clients. And knowing that I’m not only providing the freshest and best ingredients to my clients but realizing I’m a part of something bigger (the entire process – from the farm to the market – to my kitchen – to my client) is huge!

Here is one of my favorite recipes from items purchased from our growers. I hope you enjoy. And if you make it, find me online and tag me. I’d love to see your photos. You can find me @susanavello on Instagram. Or at Lean Bean Chef on Facebook. Enjoy! And thanks for allowing me to be a part of this wonderful community!

ZUCCHINI RIBBON PASTA (Raw/Gluten-Free/Vegetarian)

Zucchini (3 – 4 medium)
Pesto (Basil, Parsley, Pine Nuts, EVO, Parmesan)
Grape tomatoes
Sunflower Seeds
Shaved Parmesan

Use a veggie peeler to make the zucchini into ribbons until you get down to the seeds, then use the other side. Discard the seeds. Combine your basil, parsley, pine nuts, EVO, parmesan into the processor and blend. Toss the pesto with the zucchini gently. Add your tomatoes, seeds and parmesan.

While the weather is still miserable we thought we’d celebrate the DOG DAYS of summer on August 25. Any pooches that accompany their owners (on leashes please!) will get a natural doggie treat that day. We’re trying hard to get a celebrity pooch to visit as well. . . stay tuned, but do put it on your calendar!

THANK YOU Viki Richter for managing yesterday’s pickups!

Don’t forget to encourage any folks you know to start their orders this month before the Sept. 1 deadline for new customers. More info is available on our Question & Answer page.

One last bit of news . . . Market of Dothan is now listed on the Alabama Farmer Market Authority website! Like a square peg going into a round hole, they were unable to categorize us as a traditional market with tents everywhere (though we do that sometimes!), but have listed us on the CSA Page


Woo Hoo! Classes are starting to come together! So far we have four of eight classes scheduled with some marvelous teachers. We’ll do a shout out to them later but so far these are in the works and more will come!

Transitioning to Gluten Free / Water Keifer / Organic vs. Traditional Foods / Fermented Foods

If you’re just now reading up on this, we will be having a Fall Food Festival and Farmer’s Market starting on Sept. 30. It will be held four times through mid November on the following dates:

September 30
October 14
October 28
November 11

The Food Festival/Tent Market will be from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm each of these Saturdays and there will be two classes on healthy food and healthy food choices each week. We hope you’ll make plans to join us.

riday pickup will continue as normal giving regular customers first pickins without having to walk & shop.


We have the best Growers in the Wiregrass! Please learn more about them on our Grower Page.

HAWKINS HOMESTEAD FARM: This week our focus is planting. We have been ordering organic seeds like crazy, turning over soil, adding compost, and planning half the garden with more summer crops, hoping to beat the first frost date while planning and starting seed trays for cooler season vegetables.

Autumn is my favorite season. I look forward to mild temperatures, turning leaves, and vegetables like sweet potatoes and collards. This year we are growing an heirloom sweet potato variety. It is called Molokai. It has purple flesh and is so tasty! No butter or sugar needed. We hope to offer this treat to all of you soon!

Have you guys tried Richter Farms rosemary?!? Rosemary is favorite around here and although we keep it in the spice cabinet, having it fresh is so much better. Also check out the organic ground beef from Working Cows Dairy! Grass fed beef is the best there is. We were actual customers of Working Cows before we knew they were on the market, so we are loving the convenience of grabbing it here! Why not grab a few onions from Avalon Farms? They offer both sweets and reds. Whatever you buy, we hope you enjoy and thank you from us and all our growers!


We would love to hear from you! If you have a favorite recipe, want to write a product review, have an idea or request for an article or information, let us know! You can reply to this newsletter or write
