Quarter Spring Farm: Thanksgiving is right around the corner. You could give your family a turkey from Walmart. Or you could put a huge, pasture-raised chicken from Quarter Spring Farm on your table this year. We are running a special, $30 for a jumbo bird. Your taste buds and your family will be able to tell the difference. Our birds are grown in pasture, making them healthier and tastier than mass-produced, commercially raised poultry. We also have goat milk soaps, reusable cloth napkins, and lotion bars available on the market this week.

Bean Man: We have added Oat Flour Pizza Crust (Gluten Free, Vegan) to the recipes on the market site along with our Almond Flour Pizza Crust (Gluten Free, Yeast Free). We have also added several recipes and linked them so customers at the market can see what they can make with our flours. As always there are many more recipes on our website which provide healthy and tasty alternatives for Vegan, Vegetarian, Celiac, Keto and Paleo customers – not to mention folks who just want to eat a healthier diet and enjoy it…….Look for two more recipes – one each weekend – as we go through the month of November.

Baker Family Pastures: We have updated our Pasture raised, Organic fed Chicken inventory: select Chicken Livers, Skinless Breast, Drumsticks, Fee, Hearts, Thighs, Wings, Whole and/or Half Chicken as well as Ground Chicken, Breakfast Sausage, Zesty Italian Sausage and Soup Kits! Spare the Turkey and Enjoy our Chicken.

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.

Sow’s Ear Piggery: We have several options of Pork available this week that will help make your Holiday meals wonderful! Boston Butt Roast, Breakfast Sausage will go wonderful in stuffing, Pork Chops, Boneless Loin Roast, Bottom Round Roast, Stew Meat and a Large Shoulder.
