Conyers Locally Grown: Turkeys available
I just got a call from a farmer in south GA that has some heritage turkeys available. He has them leftover from a contract that was canceled. He has 100+.
They are going to weigh in at 22lbs+.
They are currently live and will be processed to order.
To make it work we would need to order at least 30 or more.
He is offering a special price of $2.50 per lb. I would have to add a pick up fee since I will have to hire a driver to go get them. I am thinking about 7.50 to $10.00 per bird. That would make them about $65.00 each.
They are pasture raised and he also makes his own feed. They are not organic but he does not use growth hormones, antibiotics or artificial feeds.
If you are interested please let me know as soon as possible so we can try and put together a plan.
Plattsburgh Online Ordering: Last order for three weeks
This Saturday is the last farmers market for three weeks. We will offer online ordering with delivery into Plattsburgh or pickup at Rehoboth Homestead between the monthly markets that will be the 2nd Saturdays of January, February, March, and April.
Rehoboth Homestead will have eggs self-serve on their front porch at all times, and you can call (643-7822) or email if you want chicken or duck put in the porch freezer for you to pick up.
So, stock up a little. Have a great (if dreary looking) week.
ALFN Local Food Club: Market Closes Tomorrow
Good Morning Locavores!
A bright, brisk wind this day’s commencement. Perfect for taking the recycling out.
The Market closes tomorrow. One more day to get your order in before two agonizing weeks of absence. Won’t you need eggs and breakfast sausage for your holiday mornings? Won’t you need Rudolph-esque red tomatoes, organic and locally grown?
We WILL be juicing this Saturday. $2 a cup, $1 if you use your own Food Club produce.
Josh Hardin of Laughing Stock Farms will also join us with his organic snow peas, rainbow carrots, fennel, etc., as well as Hardin Farms’ pecans.
See you this Saturday for a bustling holiday market!
Old99Farm Market: Old 99 Farm, Week of Dec 16 2012
Order on line at www.old99farm.locallygrown.net
Christmas week I will have a market on the Thursday as usual.
Greens are holding well in the greenhouse because of the mild weather, lots of lettuce, mizuna , parsley and kale.
I’ll continue the ‘buy two get one free’ special on eggs this week, since lots of people are into Xmas baking.
Do you think we’ll have a green holiday season? Climate Disruption is no longer a matter of conjecture, the international scientific community is consensed on that fact. See http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2012/05/24/478771/my-nature-piece-dust-bowlification-grave-threat-it-poses-to-food-security/?mobile=nc.
“The best strategy is to shelter in place and fight the front line battle for minds and hearts. Whether it is already too late is not the main concern; life is short and best lived taking action, rather than sitting and waiting for the worst.” (Dan Allen, Extirpation Nation essay on Resilience.org

Three more bits of delicious news:
- Falling Sky has whole turkeys + turkey breasts and legs available.
- North Pulaski has organic ripe tomatoes.
- My last weblog should have read “Throes” not “Throws” in the subject line. “Thanks,” to my grammar watchdogs.
