GROWER & MARKET NOTES

Welcome December! We hope this finds you with wonderful Thanksgiving memories and mostly prepared to enjoy the Christmas Season. We know of at least two of our Market Vendors who hosted about 20 people and one who spent was camping. No doubt there are other great stories out there and we always enjoy learning of the various things people do and traditions they employ.

And now it’s December with a whole different set of Holiday traditions.

Here at Hortons Farm we are in contact with multiple area churches in preparation an annual Cookie Packing Day on Dec. 15. This is a ministry outreach where inmates at an area jail receive home baked cookies, “lovin from the oven,” from the community at Christmas. Our group of volunteers prepare and package several thousand cookies that will be delivered Christmas Day.

Whatever your Christmas/Holiday traditions are we hope and pray that they bring deep satisfaction. Even more so, we hope they bring a deeper understanding of the height and breath and depth of God’s love for mankind and YOU in particular. Jesus truly is the Reason for the Season.

So . . . Today was Christmas Open House at Dothan Nurseries and many of our Market vendors have just made it home or will make it home soon. WHICH MEANS . . .. check our listings again tomorrow or the next day! We have NO PROBLEM with it when folks make more than one order during a weekly cycle.

Locally Grown STT:  Back again this week in Frenchtown December 8th!


Dear Customer!

We are back open this December 2022! First let us say we are so grateful to you for shopping local! We love growing for our communities as much as we love eating some good local produce!

December is a great time to reflect on our farmers market year! We’ve loved selling in our Frenchtown pick up location. We have many producers and customers that were new this year! And the produce was beautiful and delicious!

Many got to meet local producers and try new ingredients. Farmers tried new crops. It was a good food year! We aim to make 2023 even better. So we hope you stay plugged into local produce with us as we grow!

We have a few updates for you this season! This December we are doing a little test run of a Farmers Market Subscription Box and we would like to see if you are up for it! We are also switching our online ordering software to a different platform, https://queserafarms.eatfromfarms.com.

What is it?

A bi-weekly Farmer’s Market Subscription Box for the month of December, paid for in full upfront. The box includes seasonally available produce including microgreens, arugula, bush tea, seasoning greens and other available fruits and vegetables.

You will receive a farmers market box twice this month, on the second and 4th Thursday of the Month, December 8th and the 22nd. There are 2 sizes, one for large households and one that is a half share, good for smaller households.

How do I order?

Create a Que Sera Farms account at https://queserafarms.eatfromfarms.com. Go to “Account” on the right hand corner of the webpage and click “Create Account.” You will receive an email with a link to confirm your account. Once you are in go to “Product Bundles” and click on either the full or the half option for your December Subscription.

You will also have the option to add additional items from our inventory under “All Products” to your order! You can pay via Venmo to Shelli Brin @queserafarms or you can pay with cash or check at the market pick up.

Ordering will be open on the new website this evening and will close at 6pm on December 7th so make sure to place your order before then!

How do I pick it up?

On the second and fourth Thursday of the month at the Frenchtown Fish Market between 3:30 and 5:45. Text (340) 643-2298 for any scheduling conflicts and we will try to accommodate you as best we can!

Where: French Town Fish Market
When: December 8, 3:30-5:45
December 22, 3:30-5:45

We are really excited to try out this subscription model and we appreciate your support in taking on this experiment with us. This is a mini version of a Community Supported Agriculture program. When Farmers and Market Coordinators get orders and payments ahead of time it helps us plan and fund our day to day operations which, down the line, can lead to increased affordability and availability of local crops to customers while still increasing viability and profitability for local producers.

We are excited to see how much demand there is so that we can increase our production and encourage other producers too. So for our growers, we really do hope you give this subscription box a try this month!

Subscription boxes can also be a culinary adventure, opening up so many more opportunities to teach consumers how to eat local ingredients and integrate them better into their meals. It gives producers a chance to introduce items they wouldn’t normally try because local varieties vary from stateside ones. If you need tips on how to use certain items keep an eye on your inbox for recipes or simply ask us how we cook with these items at home.

What should my next steps be after this email?
Sign up for a Que Sera Farms account on https://queserafarms.eatfromfarms.com
and then sign up for a December Subscription Box. Make a note on payment of choice. And then we’ll see you December 8th, between 3p-6p in Frenchtown again! We can’t wait to see you again!!

Yours Truly,
- Your St Thomas Online Farmers Market Coordinators

Northeast Georgia Locally Grown:  Market is open for orders!


Good evening Locavores, Northeast Georgia Locally Grown is open for orders!

Go to the market >>
Fresh Vegetables
Baked Goods with Organic ingredients
Pastured Meats
Mushrooms
Cultured/fermented foods
Pastured Eggs
See all products

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 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.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in 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.

COVID19: Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!*

The farmstand is open today, tomorrow and Saturday this week from 12:30pm to 5 pm. We have lots of garlic left and I have the peeler set up to run now. We have a sale for the next three weeks on peeled garlic with the price the same as unpeeled garlic ($7.99/# or 10 lbs for $60) We have about 50 lbs of brussel sprouts left plus a few more in the field. Some of them are damaged from freezing and some are good however until they are cut open it is hard to tell if they are good. I am giving all remaining brussel sprouts away for free today to anyone that wants them on a first come basis. There is a lot of good there but it is more work to get them ready to serve. The bulk food room is stocked up and there are lots of all sorts of storage vegetables. Come and get it!
