Growers News: Always check back over the next couple days, some Growers add or update their inventories.

Oakview Farm:
We will have some of its customer favorites this week: Scandanavian Buttermilk Sourdough Bread, Artisan Sourdough bread, Roasted Strawberry Jam, and Homemade Peppermint Patties! Our hens have been laying like crazy, so we have fresh eggs, too.

From our garden, we have our Salad Greens Mix, Cabbage, Rainbow Swiss Chard, and Spinach. We don’t use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides on our produce, so you know it’s good for you and the environment.

Quarter Spring Farm: has all the affordable luxury that you need this spring. From our moisturizing soaps to our delicious meats and eggs, we have all the goodies to pamper you. You work hard, so treat yourself to an incredible dining experience with our lamb or chicken. It’s healthier and tastier than conventionally grown meats, and better for the planet, too. Our amazing goat milk soaps and lotions will leave your skin feeling like you just dropped 2 grand at a high end spa. You deserve nice things, so let us provide them to you.

Safe and Sound Soap Co.:
This week I am featuring my small batch bar soap. It’s all natural made with nurturing ingredients for your skin, like olive oil and coconut oil, sweet almond oil, oats, and honey from my family’s bee farm. You will LOVE our Honey and Oat soap. It will soften up your skin after one use! Also if you haven’t tried our laundry soap yet, you need to grab some this week. It comes in a 64 oz container that washes 32 loads, as well as a 128 oz container that will wash 64 loads. Both sizes have a handle on the container for easy pouring. My laundry soap comes in Lemon Eucalyptus, Lavender, Orange Bergamot, Citrus, and Lemon Lavender Mint. Each of these are scented with a special blend of high quality essential oils that will not only freshen your clothing with a light scent, but also has cleaning properties to help disinfect your clothing! Don’t forget I also sell my own bottled hand sanitizer spray and non-toxic car air fresheners. These items make excellent gifts for Easter baskets, Mother’s Day, or Birthdays!

Few new items this week.- Chicken, prosciutto pesto lasagnas for spring. We are taking the journey of exploring different and special lasagnas this spring and summer season. Delicious pesto sauce with spinach, sun dried tomatoes and of course lots of Italian herbs and cheeses.

Bruschetta. It’s tomato time and we have been wanting to do this for a while now. Tomatoes marinated in extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh basil and of course raw garlic. A great snack with some crackers, toast points, or you can even put it in a bed of salad greens.

Roasted Garlic and cauliflower soup. We roast the cauliflower with garlic, shallots, and thyme in the oven for one hour before blending it with vegetable stock. And finish it with truffle oil and fresh squeezed lemon juice. It’s a gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian. And it’s a home run of a soup.

Kumaika Coffee:
If you have not started your morning with our Coffee, you are missing out! We have Dark, Medium and Light Roasted Beans. We are a Certified USDA Organic Product provider. We have a small coffee roaster business. We specialize in roasting and crafting small batches of organic, high altitude single origin and fair trade coffee beans.

Upcoming Events

#1 Rather than write out a bunch of stuff we’re just going to copy part of Dothan Nursery’s most recent newsletter . . .

Well, you know you are special, right? You are! So you are the first to know about our upcoming Pollinator Party starting April 5th – 13th! So many cool things are happening. The big announcement will be next Tuesday, but I’ll let you know few details no one else knows.

First, our Butterfly House will open next Saturday April 6th. It will be beautiful and full of cute little painted lady butterflies.

Second, on April 13th our brand new Pollinator Paradise Garden will open. This is still being worked on, but will be ready for you on the 13th. Stay tuned for more details.

And . . . . since you are so special you get a chance to be the first to pre-order the Hummingbird Falls Salvia. This is the best plant we’ve found for attracting hummingbirds to your garden. We are doing our best to produce less waste here at Dothan Nurseries, and your pre-orders help us to bring in just the right amount of these lovely pollinator plants.

SO . . . April 13! This will be a special event and several of our vendors will be on hand to celebrate the Pollinator Paradise opening. We hope you’ll drop in that day.

#2 MOTHER’S DAY OPEN HOUSE is Saturday, May 11! Mark your calendar and plan to join us on this special day!


Food For Thought:

Retro picnic

Yes, that is asparagus. As you can see it’s in very sandy soil that hasn’t been tended for years. But there it is. The tallest stalk was about ten inches high when we first saw it poking up . That piece of ground had been scraped and run over by heavy equipment maybe fifty times. You would think all plant life would get the idea . . . but no – the asparagus missed that memo and sprang up happy as it could be.

It says a lot about the power of strong roots. The Bible refers to Jesus as a “root out of dry ground”. He had been there for His people all along waiting for the right time and right circumstances to surface and bring life to barren places. That’s what He still does. He’s always there. And that’s what He still offers humanity. Life. Always THE root waiting to spring life into our barren situations.

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!

Grumpy Goat:  Weblog Entry

This is a hard email to write. We are leaving soon to bring Max to the vet for the last time. I have no words right now for that. But I am writing because we were supposed to go to a market today in Piqua and won’t be able to attend. We have bread made and ready for eating though. If you would like to help us out and get some bread it is in the farm store in the coolers. All are $6. There are focaccia , and bagels: cheddar hot pepper, blueberry, everything, and mixed bags. Thanks.

Market is open Fridays at 9 p.m. through 9 p.m. Mondays!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! 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!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m. in Clayton, Clarkesville, or Gainesville.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION after you finish the checkout process, then your order is NOT complete. Head back to the market page, and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

Once you place an order, be on the lookout for the order reminder email on Wednesday with further pickup and payment notes. Thanks for your support!
