Connie's Cornucopia: New Milk Supplier
We are happy to add Mountain Fresh Creamery to our Website. Check out their milk.
Here is a little about them:
At Mountain Fresh Creamery and Glo-Crest Dairy, we are dedicated to our cows’ comfort and health 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We milk around 210 Holstein cows, twice a day, every day on our 100 acre farm. Our cows are never given any growth hormones or rBST. We also believe in healthy cows, so if a cow does happen to get sick and needs antibiotics, we will give them. However, the treated cow’s milk will be dumped until after her withdraw time period and until her milk no longer has any trace of antibiotics. Approximately 60% of our herd is registered, and we have plans to be 100% registered by 2020.
Our cows spend part of each day grazing in our lush pastures. What goes into the cow affects what comes out, so we make sure our cows have fresh water at all times and a balanced, healthy diet. Although the cows love grazing outside in the pasture, Nutritionist Ron Arp carefully balances the cows’ vitamin and mineral needs to ensure they receive the highest quality feed as well. During the hot Georgia summers, the cows enjoy hanging out by the fans to keep cool. They’re treated like family because they are!
Milk quality is our #1 priority at Glo-Crest Dairy, and the practices we have in place to care for our cows has captured our farm the “Cream of the Crop” award each year since 2004!

Old99Farm Market: Old 99 Farm, week of Sept 10 2023
Here’s what the harvest table looked like last week:
Here’s a customer’s CSA basket.
We’ve got some super fennel bulbs this week. Haven’t cooked with fennel? You can slice like an onion and eat it raw. You can steam it whole or sliced as a vegetable. The fronds make a nice garnish or topping on a salad.
The new season crops are going in, some already to the harvestable size, like young kale, lettuce and arugula.
The subscription plan “Let Me Be Your Farmer” is up and running. Pay in advance for 3 months purchases of veg, fruit, eggs, meats and ___, and get 10% off. The farm benefits from a more secure customer commitment and has cashflow to buy inputs like seed and nutrient. You get the choicest items for your basket, a la carte. Typically I’d expect $1500 to $2000 per quarter.
Sign up with an email to me. email@example.com
Summer Harvest Baskets: Some of you paid by installment so we’re at the mid-point, next time please plan on paying the second half, 10 weeks at $32. Thank you.
What we have now: arugula, apples, blackberries, celery, frilly kale, Nero kale, Rainbow chard, Tokyo Bekana, chinese cabbage, beets, bell peppers, sweet bulb onions, fennel, garlic, baby lettuce mix, baby buttercrunch lettuce, rhubarb, carrots, collards, cabbage collards, leeks, basil and herbs.
