Champaign, OH:  Look Of Love

Good morning, and not only am I taking you back on a journey to my early club days with this song, it also conveys my feelings about this market, on a lovely sunshine filled Wednesday.

Thank you, again, for your total love and support of this lovely little market!! Another great week, new customers, and smiles all around!!

No time slots, tomorrow, again! There are a lot of you, but let’s bring it on!

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm week of Sept 21 Solstice


The last full week of September is here already! Temperatures are cooling off, frost is just around the corner.
The winter greens transplants have taken well in the greenhouse and we’ll have fresh produce available all winter long. The last of the tomatoes and eggplants are coming off. Hot peppers are ripening nicely and still plenty of kale, health kick salad, collard greens, and carrots. We still have plenty of red tropeana onions available. These are a popular sweet onion originating from Tropea Italy and are very versatile; can be used in everything from soup to nuts!
Plenty of beef, chicken and select cuts of pork. A few rabbits are also available this week.

*A rabbit note: Did you know that Nick raises standard breed New Zealand white rabbits here at the farm? They are mainly bred for a high quality protien source but make GREAT pets as well. If you’re interested in obtaining a rabbit as a family pet please contact Nick for more information. There is a buy back option if it doesn’t work out for you.

We have an AMAZING beef special for everyone this week only…

We are offering our 20 lbs beef package (regularly priced at $200) for 25% OFF! That’s an incredible savings of $50!
You won’t find a better deal for organic, grass fed pastured beef anywhere!

Extended time to order. Please remember to place your order BEFORE noon Thursday if you have vegetables you want us to pick fresh. Orders placed after this time by special arrangement please.
Market times are Thursday & Friday from 3PM to 6PM. Special arrangements can be made with Nick for other pickup times if needed. Please call or text 519-755-0577.
If you have any egg cartons saved up please bring them along with you for re-use.
PORK is ready for the butcher. Next week we’ll have halves and quarters available.
Pork Butchering Workshop
Would you like to see your side cut up just the way you want it? Or learn what cut comes from which part of the animal? Ex-Cumbreae’s butcher Jamie Waldron will conduct a butchering workshop here at the farm in October. First four families get their meat to take home ($5.50/lb). Cost of workshop is $50.00. Register in The Market. Date to be determined. Small group, social distancing in effect.

We look forward to seeing everyone again this for this week’s market. Have a great week friends! And by the way, hay season is coming up again, will you join us to put some bales in the barn? Lots of hands makes light work. date tbd.

Be well,
Nick & Angela

The Cumming Harvest:  Fall is officially here


Good morning everyone,

It seems September is here, with cooler weather to start. We are so excited.
Now is the perfect time to stock up on all veggies and produce. Now it’s also a great time to tell your family and friends about the Cumming Harvest and spread the news.

This week, any questions or concerns about Saturday’s market need to be sent to the market manager by Friday at noon. I will not be available on Saturday. Mckenzie, our assistant manager will be running the market on Saturday.

Don’t forget to pick up your items the week you order them, to avoid a five dollar holding fee. This fee will be applied 2 weeks in a row, and if you do not pick up on the second week we will donate the items to Meals By Grace.
And remember the market hours are from 10 AM until 12 noon sharp.

As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Miami County Locally Grown:  CLOSED NEXT WEEK!


Just a heads up – we’ll be taking the first Tuesday off for the next three months – October, November, December!!

So we will NOT reopen for orders next Tuesday September 29th after pick-up :-)

Mucci’s Sweet Treats is offering TWO Specials, This Week Only, with all proceeds from her Specials being donated to our Fridge Fund!! Check out the WEEKLY SPECIALS category on The Market for her Gourmet Brownies and Spectacular Cookies!!

6635 StudeBaker is on vacation this week, so she’ll return with us when we reopen for orders Tuesday October 6th!

Miami County Locally Grown:  Happy Fall!!


We passed the $1,100 mark with your donations for our replacement fridge fund, and if everything works out, we’ll have eggs back on the Market by October!!

Thank you sincerely to everyone who has so generously contributed – everything from customers rounding up your payment to the next dollar to vendors requesting I not pay them for this week’s sales and put it toward the new fridge instead.

At a time when things such as kindness and hope are needed more than ever, you give a true sense of what community can and should be all about. I love my family, and there’s nowhere I’d rather be than home on our farm, ever – it’d take an extraordinarily special group of people to get me away from my husband and children on a weekly basis – and you folks are it. Thank you all for allowing me to be part of this community we’ve created and you’ve sustained.

Grumpy Goat:  Weblog Entry


I forgot to mention. If you would like bread this week, please pre order by Wednesday night!!!!! Thanks!
