Champaign, OH:  Both Sides Now

Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way…
(Judy Collins/Joni Mitchell)

Welcome back to another market week! We are back for another week, but then we will be taking the following week off for a market vacation!

The vendors work so very hard, and it’s time for a week of rest! And, while we are on break, go out to support another local tradition at The Champaign County Fair!

You may also notice that I am still on break! After catering, this weekend, for a wedding, I then get ready to host and cater my own daughter’s bridal brunch.

After always making weddings a culinary dream, it’s my turn to be on the mom side of things…

Both sides now…

Market News

Hello All -
We had a wonderful surprise shower yesterday which was much needed! We could of done without the hail but, we survived. I hope you all did not experience any damage and found it to be a nice cool-down (as we did) if you experienced the same.

Currently, we are preparing to send our hogs and lambs to the processor – if you placed an order for these items, you should have received an information e-mail with details. If you placed an order and have not heard from me yet, please contact me ASAP to confirm your order.
All others, as always, we ordered a few extra to share as cuts with you so you can try before you buy a whole or half animal from us (which is the best deal all the way around).
Eggs are still in production and we are making it through these hotter months with little set-back (thankfully). We also have lots of soap and 100% cotton wash rags to go with it. August (right around the corner!) is when we start growing out meat chickens so, we are looking forward to that event. We raise a slower growing bird so, that will make them available Nov-Mar for pick-up at the farm. And, another August event is the breeding of our sheep which will bring more lambs next year as well as lots of milk to drink (I have been told, on many occasions, that we have “the best milk available” – wow, what a compliment!).

Finally, here is a nice pic I took one evening when going out to lock up the hen houses. They say that “life is better in the country”… well, I can’t say that 100% as I grew up in the city and have experienced other pretty nice places but, I will admit, the country can be nice too – especially when you have views like the one pictured!
Thank you all!

Dothan, Alabama:  M@D Intermission Impending - VIP Announcement

Closed 3


Rather than wait till Saturday’s regularly scheduled newsletter we decided to let you know early that after pickup for this week’s orders on Friday we will be closed till Saturday, September 4 when our next newsletter goes out and orders resume.

This summer has been hard on our farmers. It almost seems they’re having to unlist and delete more than they deliver because of ongoing damage from weather and problems (like mildew and bugs) brought on by the weather. Nobody fools mother nature, but we can’t fight it either. The plan is to give the growers a much needed break and hopefully start strong in September. We realize that schedule don’t allow for many fall crops to be ready for harvest, but hopefully what is available won’t be ruining daily in the fields by then. Falling prey to local weather conditions is one of the downsides of local sustainable agriculture.

Thank you for your kind understanding and being a part of our Market family! Please do not hesitate to contact us ( if you need anything during this break. We love our customers, we love serving you and want to be here for you.
