Conway, AR:  Suet Cakes! CLG Pickup TODAY 3:00-6pm. Bring eggshells, glass jars, & egg cartons please.

Good morning!

Please wear a mask today when you pick up your ordered items. Thank you.

We will continue our contact-less delivery to your vehicle when you are parked outside the lobby. Just text me your name and vehicle description and we will bring your order out. 501-339–1039

It’s time to train the birds to stay around your house during the upcoming winter months. Hang a suet cake basket now and get them in the habit of stopping by your house for all their nutritional needs. You’ll see more of them this winter when it’s cold and possibly snowy. We will have 5 brand new suet cake baskets on the extras table today for only $2. The baskets prevent tree rats (squirrels) from taking the whole suet cake.

This is a pickup reminder for those of you who ordered this week. Thank you for your order! You can pick up your order from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. today at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church at 925 Mitchell Street in Conway.

If something comes up that you cannot personally pick up your order today, please contact someone to pick up for you.

Remember to bring your EGGSHELLS, glass jars for recycling, egg cartons, and bags for ordered items. Reduce, reuse, recycle! See you this afternoon.

Even if you didn’t make an order, you can come by to shop the EXTRAS table.

Grumpy Goat:  Weblog Entry

This is the last week we will have the store set up on Friday and Saturday. Get your orders in for bread or just stop in to get some fresh, local veggies. We will still have sweet and hot peppers, eggplants, tomatoes, garlic, herbs, kale, and chard.

After this week we will be going to just Tuesday for the store/ ordering.

Also we will be set up on Sunday for Saint Mary’s annual Walk With Nature! Hope to see you there.

Old99Farm Market:  Apple Cider Day this s unday Oct

We’ve decided to hold a cider making day again this year. It’s a family affair, everybody gets to mash some apples and load the press. Start time 2pm till about 5pm. Weather looks a little iffy with rain forecast for saturday and maybe sunday. Please RSVP to if you plan to come. Bring a jug or two for your take home cider.

Our pawpaws tree fruit is ripe! Tis a bountiful harvest that won’t last long. What’s a pawpaw you say? A fruit the size of a small pear, with green skin and yellow custard-like flesh. It tastes like a cross between banana and mango. Very pleasant. You cut the fruit in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon: so it comes in its own cup!

Asian Pears are also ripe, a crunchy sweet fruit like an apple with a flavour of it’s own.

We rendered lard this week, so if you’re looking for organic lard for fries or baking, now is the time. 400ml tubs or 1 L jars. Price is $1/100ml. I price it that way because the jars are different sizes.

Keep well, remember “pay your farmer now or your pharmacist later”. Eat well, stay healthy, stay disease free.
