Now don’t you want to drop an order off right here for this week? Surf to the online store here to place your order. Store pick up Thurs 4 to 6 or by arrangement.

No special on eggs this week but I will offer 15% off our round roasts. We cooked one in the InstaPot on Sunday, took an hour and it was cut-with-a-fork tender.

What comes to mind when you hear the word “farming”? I think of my grandparents’ farms. They were both small family farms using traditional planting and harvesting methods to grow their fruits and vegetables. Beyond Papaw’s tractors and hay baling machinery, the most sophisticated tools my folks used were tillers. Nearly all of the work was done by hand, even milking the cows.

Today, I am sharing links to two articles that discuss innovations in farming. The first article focuses on a Virginia-based company which has worked with a cruise ship company to install a vertical farm on one of its ships. This farm produces microgreens, lettuces, and herbs to supply the ship’s restaurant. Here is the link to that fascinating story:

I am also sharing a post regarding the concept of controlled environment agriculture. The use of CEA methods has increased the variety of crops that can be grown in Georgia. Here is that link:

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. We’ll see you at the Market.



P.S. I can’t figure out how to make the links listed above as “hyperlinks” so that you could just click on them and your browser would take you straight to the information. You’ll need to copy and paste the https:// address into your browser’s search feature to access these articles. Anyway, I trust that you’ll find these articles interesting and inspirational.
