Old99Farm Market: Top reviewed documentary on Food
We’re losing quality soil. Here’s what that means…Food that doesn’t taste as good An increase in diseases as our soil is stripped of vital nutrients Skyrocketing food prices And if we continue on this path, more hungry people.
But there is hope, and that’s exactly what the inspiring film, The Need To GROW, is about.
This week, for a limited time, you can watch The Need To GROW for free.
This moving documentary has won over a dozen awards at film festivals, including Winner of the Best Documentary, Audience Favorite, and Best Environmental Film.
It will touch your heart, give you hope, and inspire you to be part of the solution on planet Earth.
>> Click here to watch The Need To GROW. (Available free for a very limited time, June 13 to 19.)
P.S. If you’re concerned about climate change, this film is for you. The good news is, if we create enough healthy soil, it could pull much of the excess carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere! This is truly exciting, and the film shines a light on how that is possible.
Watch the whole movie now. (Free, for a limited time!)

Martin's Farmstand: U-pick strawberries Wednesday @2 pm
I am just returning from scouting the strawberry fields. As one approaches the patch the sweet aroma of ripe strawberries is floating in the evening summer air. I tasted a few. They are delicious. We are opening the fields for u-pick starting at 2 pm tomorrow (Wednesday June 15,2022) NO MORNING PICKING ON WEDNESDAYS. Picking conditions are excellent with thousands of lbs. ready to pick now. We are in the early main part of strawberry season. In the next 10-14 days 90% of the crop will come in. Come and get them. We also have picked berries at the farm stand for those of you that do not wish to pick. Daniel
Grumpy Goat: Weblog Entry
We are open for ordering this week. Please note that I zeroed out a lot of the leafy greens. They aren’t enjoying this heat wave and I’m not sure if I will have any by the weekend or not. So come shop in person Friday to see what has made it through!
As far as new items listed : garlic scapes are coming in strong, fennel heads are just big enough, chard has recovered from the rabbit frenzy, and the fava beans are here – they are a super short season crop so get them while you can!Keep the look out next week for the first of the kohlrabis.
Stay cool out there!
