Champaign, OH: The missing glove...
Good evening market shoppers! A brief note of thanks to our wonderful volunteers tonight who packed your orders with a smile: Charlene, Mark and Pam (along with Meyer which I include because he is so charming!) We couldn’t do it without you guys!
There was a black glove with leather accents found at the check-in table tonight. It is at the front desk of the Y in case you have dropped it at the market.
Many thanks also to Craig Shirk from the Urbana Daily Citizen who is writing a feature story on the virtual market for their sister paper, Acres, which is circulated to at least 5 counties to homes with five acres or more. It primarily has a focus on rural living and agriculturally related stories. We’ll fit right in the pages and hopefully will show up in the February copy. We’ll share the news when it does! Have a great Friday and thanks again for your support!

Gwinnett Locally Grown: Happy New Year
New Year Greetings to everyone!
I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday and time spent with friends and family enriched your hearts and souls! It has been an interesting year – and each time I see one of my Market folks I am reminded how blessed I am. Thank you all for your support!
I have a confession of sorts — I have been very ill with pneumonia the last 7 weeks. I am still struggling to get over it. I have admittedly done a less than stellar job keeping up with things; however, I did the best I could to accommodate your requests, whatever they have been. If I have missed something along the way, I apologize. Please let me know what it was and I will do my best to correct it.
One of the small pleasures that I enjoy is a good cup of coffee in the morning. Periodic ally I would tire of the coffee I was brewing and would go in search of yet another brand to try and for the past 6 months I have been ‘brand hopping’! In the hopes of finding a coffee that has that wonderful aroma, full bodied taste with a nice finish, I tried high end coffees, low end coffee and everything in between. Nothing really ‘hit the spot’ until someone gave me a pound of Dean’s Beans Coffee (an organic, free-trade coffee) roasted locally by David Huenergardt of Lilburn! And long story short – now I can share that perfect coffee with you! David will be at Market pickup this Tuesday with samples of his wonderful brew! Stop by and have a cup – there may be some treats to go with this outstanding coffee! David’s company is called “The Roasting Fool” and will be joining the Market!
Around Thanksgiving, I let everyone know that we would be ordering from Wilderness Family Naturals. Several people wanted coconut oil and 2 people wanted additional items. These items did not bring us to the minimum order needed to get the Group Buy discount. The order has not been placed. Please email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you the Product list and order form. If you completed an order form in November, it is not necessary to send another one. If you emailed me with your order or gave me your order verbally, please submit an order form. When I get the completed form, I will figure the shipping charges based on previous history of what we have been charged per item and email the total to you. There is an additional charge of $7.00 for the administrative fee. This is the money that is paid to me to handle the order from getting it from you through figuring the S and H, to placing the order, to tracking it, to being at the Farm to receive it, to unpacking it, checking it for accuracy and ‘filling” each individual order. I hope that we can put an order together quickly because I am in dire need of good quality coconut oil as well as some freeze-dried fruits! So, please check your pantries and get your order in asap!
Mother Earth Meats: Wow! I was fortunate enough to have one of their turkeys for Christmas and it was outstanding! I hope others who purchased turkey had a similar experience. Ours was truly exceptional! As soon as I get the next delivery date and deadline from Tracy, I will let you know! I believe that ordering will take place later this month with delivery scheduled for the first or second week in February. I am working with Tracy, looking at putting a new ordering system in place and will keep you informed about progress with that project also!
If there are other products/companies that you use and would like to see if we can work with the company to create a Group Buy opportunity, please send me the company name and website. Let me know the products you order from them and I will pass it on to the Group and gauge the interest. I will then contact the company and see what we can work out. A couple of companies that you may want to check out are mountainroseherbs.com; nuts.com; radiantlife.com. Any other suggestions are more than welcome.
If you are in need of flours, alternative flours, grains, legumes or lentils, please email me your order or if you are placing an order for other Market items, put your order for those items in the Comment Section. Need Milk Kefir, please order that through the Comment Section also!
I am looking forward to the coming year and have many changes in the works for Gwinnett Locally Grown! May 2013 bring health, prosperity and much joy to all!
Now hop on over to the Market and go shopping! And don’t forget to stop by the Country Store and have a cup of coffee during Market pickup on Tuesday between 4:30 and 6:30pm.!
