MISC MARKET NOTES

Welcome Longears-n-Herbs


Editor’s Note – We couldn’t say it better ourselves so we’re sharing Longears-n-Herbs grower information to introduce the newest member of our market family. Information about soil health and the use of their products is so helpful even if you don’t garden . . and of course there are the other wonderful products. So please get to know Danise a bit through what follows.

God created the land for us to use, tend and nurture for future generations. Our agricultural lands are dwindling and there’s no more being made. Family farms are folding. Urbanization is taking over. Younger generations are moving away from our heritage into bio-farming. With zero waste and sustainable trends rising, our mission is to foster sustainable agriculture. We are committed to helping agriculturalists (farmers/gardeners) be good stewards of our land and restoring our agricultural foundation which was entrusted to us by our forefathers.

BIOSOIL and SOILCARE – Reviving our depleted soils with patented live microbes that create the perfect environment for plant/tree growth and health. Regenerative agriculture is leading the way in higher quality crops, veggies, fruits, etc. with higher yields.
Consistent use can delete fertilizers all together for more beautiful produce whether in ground crops, potted gardening, fruit trees, etc. From the household gardener to the large acreage farmer, these products work and save money.

Retro picnic


REBOOT and BALANCER – Our pet and livestock products, REBOOT, REVIVE and BALANCE the PH in the gut. A healthier gut in livestock and pets reduces need for antibiotics, healthier pregnancies, reduces allergies (that are so related to the gut!) The Balancer can even be used as a topical spray on wounds for enhanced skin repair. Both Balancer and Reboot act as Prebiotic/Probiotic microbes.
Endorsed by the American Grass Fed Beef Association.

Longears-n-Herbs also creates Herbal Tinctures available to support many of the body’s systems. Most of the herbs used are locally grown, others are acquired through organic herb farms. Lessening my family’s dependency on synthetic OTC drugs and prescriptions led me to clinical herbalist school to educate myself on more natural ways of supporting normal, healthy bodily function. “Then God said, ’ Let the earth sprout vegetation, herbs yielding seed, fruit trees bearing fruit after its own kind, with seed in them, on the earth, and it was so…and the earth brought forth….and God saw that is was good.” Genesis 1:11-12

Mount Moriah Farms: We just welcomed another doeling onto the farm. She was born on valentine’s day and we named her “valentina”. We will be keeping her as her mother is a wonderful milker! We have been working on adding some new products for sale. One of them Being our “Baby Bottom Cream” The ingredients in this super simple cream are all natural and effective. Zinc oxide is great for adding a barrier between the wet diaper and the skin. This gives the body a chance to heal on its own, without moisture and other not-so-pleasant things interfering with the process.Bentonite clay has amazing healing and detoxifying benefits. It absorbs moisture and removes toxins and impurities. It also fights bacteria. I love using it on my little one, knowing that there are no chemicals in it!

Avalon Farms:
I’m back! Well, sort of. Ha Ha 

There aren’t any vegetables yet, but all our tasty jams, pepper jellies, pickles and praline pecans are available again. 

Still experiencing some pain in left leg. But SO much better than before. I’ve been able to start working outside for short periods of time. Also have to build up normal strength after being idle for 2 months. Diagnosis is basically nerve compression in lower back and left hip, causing crazy pain. Fun times. With continuing physical therapy and slow careful physical activity I am improving.

Thank you for checking on me and especially for all your prayers. Making a little progress everyday.

Wendy

THIS & THAT

Good News! The Alabama Senate recently voted 32-0 to ban laboratory grown meat in Alabama. 1819 News has a great opinion piece on this issue if you wish to learn more.

Social Media Fun: Hopefully by the time you get to this little paragraph you’ll have time to become one of the first 1000 followers of a great little Instagram account called StrangeThingsInAlabama. Its a fun compilation that covers events, people, places, history and great stories in our state. Your editor is anxiously waiting to see if there’s one about the world’s smallest museum in Seale or the Haunted Chicken House up in Chulafinnee, both right on 431. Who knows what other oddities may lurk on our familiar state highway!

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!

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!

Martin's Farmstand:  Freeze Dried Beets


The farm stand will be open tomorrow afternoon (Saturday Feb 17, 2024) from noon till 5 pm. This evening we went through the display cooler and set things in order. We peeled a batch of garlic cloves and bagged up a fresh batch of shredded red beets from the freeze dryer. Freeze dried beets have a nice sweet crunchy taste and texture. They are good sprinkled on salads or just to snack on. To make these dried beets I just shred and dehydrate raw beets. No salt or anything else. It takes about 8 lbs. of fresh beets for 1 lb. of dried product. Think of us if you are in the market for good wholesome foods such as cabbage, beets, carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic and much more. Enjoy! Daniel
