GROWER & MARKET NOTES

August & September Market Schedule

For several years now M@D has taken a breather at the end of summer. The biggest reason for this remains the inavailability of fresh local produce. Okra is about the only thing that loves August and September weather! The break has provided a great time for our vendors to vacation, regroup and plan. Not everyone farms plants however and we will continue to offer meats, eggs, honey, baked goods, etc. every other week, at least that’s the plan! I suspect Grier Acres will continue to offer okra too!

Open for Orders Saturday, August 6 with Pickup on August 12
Open for Orders Saturday, August 20 with Pickup on August 26
Open for Orders Saturday, September 3 with Pickup on September 9
Open for Orders Saturday, September 17 with Pickup on September 23
Open for Orders Saturday, October 1 with Pickup on October 7
We resume weekly schedule October 8 till mid November for Thanksgiving Break

Miami County Locally Grown:  Raccoon Invasion


Shop here

From the American Heritage Dictionary: vermin n., pl. vermin 1. Any of various small animals or insects that are destructive, annoying, or injurious to health, as cockroaches or rats.

Contrary to a Disney version, there’s also the saying, “nature red, in tooth and claw” hinting at a darker side, at least from the human view. Although I do think a gazelle on the African Savannah being pursued by lions might agree with the tooth and claw part.

I had my first encounter with raccoons recently – the first time in 18 years living at Chez Nous Farm. Accustomed to leaving various doors open in summer, I awoke to three juvenile individuals wreaking havoc on the breezeway early one morning. Though quite traumatizing them with a good deal of yelling and the nearest broom I could grab, I knew they’d be back and that the flower garden and two greenhouses (especially those precious raspberries!) were all at risk of significant damage.

Forthwith, I learned how to repair and operate live traps thanks to help from my more experienced next-door neighbor. And once captured, knowing I would have an unpleasant chore to do, I borrowed a .22 rifle from my contractor. Right off, one of the three coons was trapped and dispatched, and the trap has since been untouched. This might not be the end of the story yet…

One of the harsh realities of a farm is that death is not an uncommon visitor, and this ‘ole pioneer woman has steeled her nerves to do whatever must be done. I have buried horses, dogs, cats, chickens, and goats. Nonetheless, I do have a squeamish side, and a tender spot too, having rescued certain spiders or barn swallows fallen from the nest…

Lastly, any conscientious person who eats meat must morally reconcile oneself with the death of an animal. My view has been the lesser of two evils: unlike factory-farmed animals who lived horrendous lives if that could be called life – the ones raised locally with species-appropriate diets, fresh air and water, and good pasture – had the best life they could get until the last day.

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

COVID19: Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!*
