Sign up two friends or family members and you receive a 1kg bunch of Rhubarb AND 10% off your order. (This is only qualifiable for vegetables and greens purchases, not eggs or meats)

A good selection of veggies this week; spinach, green chard, a very delicious buttercrunch lettuce, red kale, turnips (greens on), rhubarb, mint, fennel tops, wild foraged Nettle leaf, black currant leaves (see links below for more information), and a few others – please feel free to browse the market.
Also available are Heartnut Tree seedlings, Paw Paw tree seedlings and thornless Black Berry transplants. Please feel free to come during market times to browse the selection of tree and berry seedlings.

Champaign, OH:  A Note From Anchor Acres


Happy Wednesday, lovely market customers!

First of all…thank you, so very much, for all the love you showed us, this week, and each and every week! I am never not blown away, each week, as I watch the orders flooding in!!

And, at tomorrow’s pick up, we welcome back, Anchor Acres….she is a past vendor, and we love her produce!

Here is a note from Laurie, of Anchor Acres…

I will have more variety including some fun things like tomatillos, kabocha squash, and chamoe (Korean melon), as well as some peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and green beans.

Laurie

We will have her all set up in the new area that you all have been watching come to life with the new driveway expansion.

If you are a market customer, this week, you can stop at the greenhouse while I bring you your order, and then you can keep pulling into the new section to drive up to where Laurie will be!!

Each week, we will have various vendors all set up to bring you their products, or to meet and greet you, and talk about their business.

Since this is an online market, the customers don’t always get to meet the vendors, and we think this will be an excellent new edition to our little market. A drive through option!

If you did not order this week, you are still welcome to drive out, and partake in meeting Laurie, and grabbing up what she will be offering!!

She is cash and carry, only!!!!

See you, tomorrow…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

Yalaha, FL:  Leeks available, Planning on a June Break


We Have Leeks! The kind you eat.

Lettuce is very poor now so I’m getting ready for the summer “down” time starting to do clean up/maintenance.

I expect I will be leaving the Market Closed from June 6 through June 26. Some one is always here at the Farm but we don’t have much available anyway so I figure it is the best time to almost shut down for a little while.

Standard Ordering window below.
Order now through 7 am Friday May 21st for May 21st or 22nd Pickup, or tell me when you want to pick up, we have flexibility, I just prefer to harvest early in the day so things are fresh and not all wilted so it is best to get your order in the day before you want to pick up.

We Are Flexible, TELL ME if you want to make special arrangements for produce, I am open and willing especially now. I just need to know the day before so I can harvest anything that needs early morning handling and I like to know when to expect people to show up.

Remember to tell me when you want to pick up! (and if I don’t reply to confirm within a day, bump my e-mail or text me 407-342-8515. Though I have cleaned up my e-mail so hopefully I won’t Miss Anyone.)

Sign in to order. https://yalaha.locallygrown.net/market

You have to sign in to see the add to cart button. Then set the number and click the add to cart button on the items you want to buy (it is the little picture right next to the quantity box.) Remember you need to check out before your order will be placed.
Remember to let me know when you want to pick up on Sat or maybe even Friday late afternoon or on Sunday. (If I don’t send you an e-mail confirmation of your order and pick up time, please make sure you checked out and completed your order.)

Wedge Oak Farm:  Happy Memorial Day Week! Order til 8AM Friday!


Hi Farm Family!

We’ve got everything stocked up for your Memorial Day weekend needs! There’s a large assortment of link sausages, pork chops, pork roasts and ribs. We’ve still got plenty of our 100% grass-fed ground beef and an assortment of steaks and beef roasts/braising cuts.

Last week, we got a fresh batch of spring chickens in and now have a huge selection of breasts, wings, leg quarters, drumsticks, and thighs. We also spatchcocked quite a few as well, which is in our humble opinion the best way to grill, roast, or smoke a whole chicken.

Don’t forget to grab some of our house made bone broth/stock for your beans and greens too!

We’ll be breaking down a couple of hogs this week as well, so we will be loaded up on Saturday with all your porky needs!

Have a wonderful week! We look forward to seeing you this weekend.

Miami County Locally Grown:  Memorial Day


Memorial Day was established after the Civil War as a day
to remember and honor
all the men and women who have died in service to our country.

Services all over Miami County are planned for today at area cemeteries, as well as parades in Piqua, West Milton, Casstown, and Christiansburg, honoring the original purpose of Memorial Day – to remember all (now more than 1.3 million) who’ve died while serving in our armed forces.

And the Miami Valley Veterans Museum is proud to announce at 1pm today the Ohio Motor Pool of military vehicles will arrive at the new Museum location – 2245 South Co Rd 25A in Troy! The public is encouraged to welcome the convoy of military vehicles at the Museum and greet convoy members. Please allow time to view our many displays and see the authentic wooden Higgins Boat (LCVP)!!

The Museum is open today 11am-5pm, with a short memorial service held at 2pm. The Miami Valley Veterans Museum is a non-profit whose mission is to honor, preserve, and perpetuate the legacy of Miami Valley Veterans – a fascinating place for all ages, as my family of seven will attest.

In 1915 Mona Michael penned the following lines and started the tradition of wearing red poppies on Memorial Day to honor all of those who’ve died serving the USA

“We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.”
