News From Our Growers:

Stones River Market: Can’t decide what to get a friend, family, teacher for Christmas and/or the New Year…think GIFT CERTIFICATES to the Market! Let’s them select what they want from our list of Growers.

Welcome our NEW GROWER/Artisan…JillianFaithArt: Her beautiful original art work will surely please you. Several different print sizes available just in time for the Holiday gift giving. She will set up occasionally during delivery time so you can see some of her work and also have a chance to meet and talk with her.

Mo’Scrubs by Toya: Just because your feet aren’t exposed during the cold weather months doesn’t mean you can neglect foot care! Keep you feet soft and smooth year round! Exfoliate with ‘Head over Heals’ the peppermint foot scrub that will leave your feet with a cool sensation.

Then, nourish and hydrate with ‘Frosty’, the foot butter blended with Raw Shea, Peppermint Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Eucalyptus Oil and Vitamin E.

For cases of extreme dry, cracked heels, add in the healing balm, ‘Smooth Operator’.

Quarter Spring Farm: We are super excited to have several sizes of our pasture raised chickens listed during the holiday season, including our jumbo birds! We have updated our available scents of goat milk soaps and added both of our all natural healing balms as well! Happy Holidays!

Oakview Farm: Will have our free range chicken eggs on sale over the next few weeks, as well as a few different varieties of homemade apple butter! We may have some duck eggs as well if the ducks continue to lay as they have. Happy Holidays!

Sow’s Ear Piggery: Cutlets, chops, shoulder roasts, and sausages are available again this week. As always, out pork is natural, non-GMO, and raised outdoors. * Please note: Our current products come from an especially lean breed, so we recommend marinades and cooking methods with oils and broths that will bring moisture to these cuts.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: Doing much better after my fall last week! Back this week with a good selection of wrapped Christmas cacti and African violets for gift-giving, or just to add some color to your own holiday decorations. I’m trying to keep the availability updated to reflect the plants currently in bloom. But if you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask.

Here’s a teaser: just think – it’s only about two months till daffodil time! I may have some surprises for you this year (no promises). But first, we’ll have to survive whatever wintry goodness Mother Nature throws our way. The woolly bear caterpillars say it’s going to be a hard one!
