Some of Our Grower’s News:
Introducing several New Growers that have joined the market:
Rus-T-Acres: We are a hard-working couple who care very much about our livestock. We have been raising cattle together for 18 years; and my husband, his entire life. Our beef are Black Angus and pasture raised. We will be supplying non-hormonal and non-steroidal beef.
Available this week:
Chuck Roast, Rib Eye Steak, Sirloin Steak, T-Bone Steak and Ground Beef. We will soon have more cuts available.
Beaded Beauty: Young. local artisan creating unique beaded jewelry for clients of all ages. Designs/products can be premade or custom ordered for length and color scheme.
Handmade by Andrea: I make a variety of items and my focus right now is Christmas themed items. I have Christmas stockings and fabric gift bags. I also make crocheted cowls/scarves.
From some of Our Growers:
Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: It’s Christmas time in Tennessee! Well, not really, but it is time to put in your order for decorations from Dogwood Valley Greenhouse. This year I will be selling at Wildwood Christmas Tree Farm in Woodbury, and I want to be sure to reserve enough decorations for all my local friends.
So here is how this will work: prepay the total cost now, and reserve a delivery date. Note: it will be easier for me to fill your order on a later date. I promise I will not run out of wreaths and kissing balls, but it’s hard to make as many as are wanted early in the season. They should last about a month if outside, and will be just as beautiful after Christmas as before. Delivery will begin the first Wednesday of December and continue till all orders are filled. Order and pay now, pick up and enjoy in December. Coming in a month or so: Christmas cacti and African violets, both with foil florist pot wrap.
Quarter Spring Farm: we have a full selection of pasture raised chickens and chicken cuts. Our birds are grown in pasture, making them healthier and tastier than mass-produced, commercially raised chickens. We also have goat milk soaps, reusable cloth napkins, and lotion bars available on the market. Happy shopping :)

Sing Bee Honey: Fall is in the air! It is time for fall festivals, warm sweaters, and backyard fires. But, are you ready for cold and flu season? Honey has been shown to lessen symptoms of sore throat and suppress cough. Several studies have shown the benefits of honey when used for respiratory symptoms. You can read more with a quick search of WebMD or Mayo Clinic online. Recommended methods of taking honey include eating a spoonful of honey and allowing it to trickle down your throat as you slowly swallow or adding honey to a warm cup of tea. As a reminder, honey is not recommended for infants under 1 year of age. While honey is not a cure for the cold or flu, it can sure help make the symptoms more bearable. Honey is available in a number of sizes in both jars and convenient squeeze bottles. Stock up so you are ready for the winter season!

We do our best to allow the rhythms of the earth and seasons to rule our practices throughout the year.

Time of year may affect what is readily available, but we will keep our list updated.

This product is non toxic, child and pet friendly and you don’t have to be concerned about using too much. The benefits of worm castings are: fighting fungal diseases and pests i.e., aphids, white flies, spider mites and other pests that feed of plants juices. The castings can be used to rehab all potting and ground soils for up to 1 year making it a great soil amendment addition to any plant lovers garden.
