Bacon Cheese Quiche, Butterhead Lettuce, Candy Onion PLANTS, Egg Salad, Pasture Raised Eggs, Fresh Cut Mint, Granola, Red Leaf Lettuce, Roasted Heirloom Marianara, Siberian Kale, Speckled Bibb Lettuce and Spinach.
Quarter Springs Farm: Spring has almost sprung and our hens are working overtime to lay lots of healthy and delicious eggs. We still have a selection of lamb cuts available, and a very limited selection of pasture-raised whole chickens and breasts. Pasture raised chicken is better for the bird, your body and the planet. But most importantly, it tastes amazing. As usual, we have a scintillating selection of savory soaps and shampoo bars, all made with skin softening goat milk.
NashPhilly: Will return next week.
Billie Rose Bread & Butter: offering a variety of delicious made-from-scratch items to the local community. A unique mix of items will be curated, with a strong focus on baked goods and delicious fruit butters and jams. From southern staples like cornbread and biscuits, to New York style bagels, to special diet accommodations like vegan breads and wheat-free dog treats, Billie Rose hopes to become a new craving!
Oakview Farm: We are taking a few weeks off and will be back mid March.
Thweatt Things: I am making fabric Easter baskets for gathering eggs or for brightening your home decor for the holiday. These roomy baskets have a 6” base and are approximately 5 1/2” high. The handle is buttoned on and can be taken off if desired. They are constructed from fabric and soft foam. Each one is unique. Printed Design may vary.
Pinky’s Micros: Microgreens and sprouts are extremely dense in vital enzymes, minerals and vitamins and chlorophyll. There aren’t many foods you could eat that are fresher. Put on your sandwhich, top your salads with them or use in place of lettuce.
This week: Seasonal Chef’s Blend; this is our specialty customized microgreen blend! Every season we’ll be creating new blends represent each season. Our Winter Blend has Romaine, Celery, Kale Confetti and Red Bull Beets. Along with Pea, Radish, Cinnamon Basil, Broccoli, Basic salad Mix and Sunflower.
Enjoy a dazzling array of new flavors. Plants are at their absolute peak of flavor intensity at this stage of life.
Shroomegy Gourmet Mushrooms: It’s been a busy few weeks here at Shroomegy. We are working hard to bring you great fresh mushrooms! I have been using Lion’s Mane powder in my morning coffee in the ratio of 3 parts coffee to 1 part mushroom powder to up my antioxidants. I feel great! We are also working on a new mushroom jerky recipe with oyster mushrooms. I will be sure to add it to the recipes when I get it just right.
RC Farm: Enjoy our large selection of produce grown in our greenhouse and/or hydroponically. We have added several other items to our inventory. Fried pies, cakes, pies and breads.
Rus-T-Acres: Our Chickens have finally started laying again! This winter has been ruff on our feather ‘friends’. Be sure to checkout our several delicious selections of Beef and Pork.
Flying S Farms: Let’s talk Chicken Eggs, they are picking up their production! We can now offer by the dozen or a bundle of 3 dozen!. Friendship and Sour Dough Breads and Delicious Biscuits are freshly baked day of delivery! We are having a SALE…purchase a Pumpkin Butter and get one free!! Still available is our delicious Apple Butter and Fig Jam from local Turkey Fig Tree are great anytime of the year. Apple Jamely (almost a jelly but thick like a jam) HOT Jams – Seriously Hot Strawberry and Habanero Peach are a hit. Warm some up and put over cream cheese and serve with crackers – yummy!
C&M Valley Farm: Welcome back, we have few plants available and more to come. This week Ghost Succulent, Hens and Chick succulent, very low maintenance and beautiful indoors or out. Also Ruby Necklace hang plant.

Dothan, Alabama: March Fourth 2023 M@D Newsletter
GROWER & MARKET NOTES
Between cold and dreary skies it seems like the winter was long, but something in Tractor Supply last week made my heart happy:
The tanks had everything but the chicks, probably a good thing as I would have taken at bunch home with no preparation. We all know impulse buying is dangerous, but in the case of chicks there are lives at stake!
But we are getting chicks, from a reputable hatchery no less! And if the summer of 2023 goes anything like the summer of 2021 we’ll continue to feast on glassed eggs during the winter months.
Speaking of glassed eggs, there are rumors that some of our vendors may start listing them. If you’re not familiar with this very old practice this is a GREAT article.
Rather than provide inspirational or educational information this week we’re just going to have fun and enjoy some signs of the season.
D’S JELLIES: Our Mayhaw Trees have been in full bloom and the honey Bees found them. We now have lots of Mayhaw berries and we’re hopeful a late freeze won’t get our berries this year. As jelly jars become available, I am adding them to my supply. I hope to be making D’s Mayhaw Jelly in May, D’s BlackBerry Jelly in June, and D’s Hot Pepper Jelly in July. D’s Farmhouse Kitchen Recipes is a good one to add to your collection of Cookbooks. It’s a good one for yourself or for a gift for a friend. Thank you so much for your continued support!
We look forward to seeing you next Friday at one of our pickup locations. Thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!

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!
