Miami County Locally Grown:  Forecast is clear for Tuesday!!


Less than two hours to get those last minute orders in!!

I’ll announce the Winners of the Valentine Flowers tonight at 8pm when Market closes (YES I meant more than one Winner!! There was so much interest in them, we’re going to give away TWO of those lovely wooden flower bouquets – TWO winners will be drawn from anyone who has entered our drawing, either on the previous 3 Tuesdays at pick-up or on our website with their order!!)

Feel free to continue to enter (look under the MCLG category on The Market) until we close at 8pm… Good Luck!!

And hopefully I can have faith that the current forecast for Tuesday will come true… possible sunshine and no precipitation?! Sounds awesome right about now ;-)

Dawson Local Harvest:  CHICKEN IS BACK on the Dawson Local Harvest Market!


The Dawson Harvest Market Opens at 8 pm.

PLACE YOUR ORDERS STARTING AT 8 PM!

Foothills Market:  The Market is Open!


In case you haven’t noticed, this Friday is Valentine’s Day. Foothills Market is not going to go as crazy with Valentine-themed merchandise as the big box stores have, but we do have the makings for a perfect dinner with your valentine! We have several options if you’d like a steak dinner, ranging from Ribeye (bone-in or boneless) to Porterhouse to New York Strip. Pair the steak with a fresh, local salad and some home-baked sourdough rolls and top off with a couple of Death by Chocolate cookies to treat your valentine (and yourself!).

Not in the mood for steak? Maybe you would prefer pork chops, pan-fried and matched with wilted Swiss chard. Or maybe you are more of a fan of barbeque ribs with a side salad and a cornmeal muffin.

Maybe you’re just hungry for a good love story. EMZ-Piney Publishing has three novels set in the early years of Arkansas Territory that the author describes as “love stories blended with history.”

Whatever your taste, you’re sure to find something special. Shop the market between now and 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday. We’ll have your order ready for pickup on Thursday from 5-5:30 p.m., just in time for Valentine’s Day!

The Wednesday Market:  The Sun is Shining and It's Time to Order

https://wednesdaymarket.locallygrown.net/market

Today is a bright and clear day, with plenty of sunshine. We’d best get outside and enjoy it, for the rain will be back for most of this week. We hope everyone has a great Sunday, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

Beverly

Magney Legacy Ridge Farm:  Bonus Market #2


Dear CSA-ers,
We’re offering a bonus market this week! The market is open now. Orders placed between now and Tuesday evening will be delivered Thursday (February 13th) at the usual time. We have some great vegetables available including our sweet mini cabbages and a limited supply of brussels sprouts! Check the site for the full selection: https://magneyfarm.locallygrown.net/market
As the days begin to lengthen and bright sunshine begins to pierce winter overcast, the time for serious Spring planning is upon us. This past week, the team has been very busy filling in the farm map and seeding chart for the coming year. Officially, seeds for the 2020 season have been ordered; a daunting financial figure by the time the entirety of the farm is planted in two rotations of vegetables. Our ability to meet this figure and start off on the right foot is thanks to all of you who participated in and purchased “seasonal” subscriptions during the January bonus market. We thank you all so much!
The beginning of the year is always the most anxious time for vegetable farmers. There are so many unknowns: How late will frosts continue? Will fields be dry enough to plant by our projected dates? How will we pay our team members to plant crops before the abundant production of late Spring begins? Some of these questions, only fate can answer. Others, we can be proactive in our approach.
That third question of making sure our team is compensated fairly for their labor is the benefit of the CSA model. It’s been a while since we defined CSA in a newsletter, but the acronym stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” It is our belief that agriculture, particularly the sustainably minded organic agriculture that we practice, is an asset to the food security and health of our region. Your participation in the CSA allows our farm and team members to not only exist, but to live well. We hope that in some way, our service allows you to do the same. If you haven’t already, please consider committing to one of the 10, 20, or 40 week memberships that we have made available at discount on the market website. We are committed to serving you, our community, with the best produce from our farm. We are so grateful for this opportunity!

Sincerely,
The Magney Legacy Ridge Team

Stones River Market:  Market is OPEN -- See you Wednesday


Welcome to this weeks Stones River Locally Grown Online Farmers Market. The Market is opens 8:00 am on Sunday Morning and closes 10:00 pm Monday evening. Order early before quantities available run out! www.stonesriver.locallygrown.net

Certainly hope everyone did well through last weeks weather. Would like to remind our customers if by chance there is severe weather please do not feel obligated to pickup your order, let me know and we can make other pickup arrangements. Safety First! We were able to get off ‘The Porch’ before worst of the rainstorm arrived but it was still a little scary with the lightning and rain!

News From Our Growers:

Short Mountain Cultures: We now offer a range of Hatcher Dairy Milk on SRM!! Our offerings include cream top whole milk, chocolate milk, half and half and heavy cream. Support local milk! It is some of the BEST milk around!

Wedge Oak Farm: Back this week with some delicious Meat items!

The Sugared Spoon: Our Chocolate Raspberry Cookies are available through Valentine’s Day. Assortments are always are great choice also.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s daffodil time in Tennessee! Well, I hope it is. 70* weather at the first of the week brought the buds on too fast, then the beds where my daffodils are planted all flooded a foot deep! Lastly we had an inch of snow Thursday night and temperatures hovering around freezing all day Friday, which bowed down the tenderest, largest buds. Some of the first flowers may have been damaged, but the majority of the bed will be fine. So I’m going out on a limb and listing a few bouquets available this week. If those are sold when you place your order, go ahead and order one anyway, but know that I will be filling orders on a first come, first served basis. The daffodils will come on fast if we have warmish weather. They should be available for at least two more weeks after this one, so if you miss out on the early blooms, please try again next week. Thanks for your continued support and encouragement!

Mushamo Valley: This week Lion’s Mane is available, considered the lobster or crab of the mushroom world with a taste described as rich, buttery, sweet, and meaty…. NEW: Japanese curry buns are extremely flavorful and very mild! and Chinese peanut cookie traditionally served at the lunar new year, each cookie is approximately 1.5” and made of freshly roasted and ground peanuts.

Carole’s Herbs (CS3 Farms): Our arugula and mustard greens had a bit of snow on them the last few days, but they should be thawed out by market time…Our red pepper and rosemary thyme hummus are a great addition to salad, casseroles, sandwiches, or crackers…Try a gut-healthy shrub for great taste combined with nutritious ingredients.

Nom Noms Dog Treats: Our Dog Treats are nutritiously delicious doggie treats that help get dogs spayed/neutered. Our treats are gluten/wheat free, vegan, and full of good protein.

Flying S Farms: NEW this week by request Vanilla Cinnamon Raisin Friendship Bread. Fresh Farm Eggs, Salad Onions, Garlic Bulbs, Sour Dough and Artisan Style Bread, along with Jams and Jelly this week.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: Offering this week Boston Butt Roast, Pork Chops, Tenderized Cutlets, Shoulder (Picnic) Roast and Breakfast Sausage with Medium or Spicy Seasoning.
