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 :)

Mama D’s Bakery: Hi everyone! We have everything available this week!! We have Hummingbird Cake (with a gluten/dairy free option too), Pumpkin Spice Bagels, Pumpkin and Gingerbread Cake Rolls, Jumbo Pumpkin Muffins, Ginger Cookies, Sourdough Sandwich Loaf, Oatmeal Cookies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Strawberry Swirl Bread, Raspberry Swirl Bread, and Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread, Blueberry Muffins, Crusty French Bread, Organic White Wheat Bread, Mocha Muffins, Chocolate Swiss Roll, Cinnamon Rolls, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, Blueberry Lemon Yeast Rolls, Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread(with the option of nuts or not), Bagels(plain, cinnamon-raisin, blueberry, and everything), Donuts(cake and yeast), Cream Cheese Danishes, Pies(chocolate fudge, pecan, chocolate chip pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato), Cookies, Granola and Protein Bars, Yeast Breads, Sourdough Breads, and Fruit Scones. Thanks so much to everybody for your business!!

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!

C&M Farm: Available this week Chicken Eggs and Quail Eggs – if you haven’t had this, you are missing out – they may be small but they are delicious. We have added some of our favorite desserts/snacks to the market, with weather getting cooler enjoy your hot cup of coffee or tea with our rich tasting Banana Bread with or without nuts, or a pan of Brownies with or without nuts they are chewy, scrunchy-on-the-edge! This is also the time of year people enjoy a pot of chili or spaghetti enjoy it with our delicious Bread Sticks. They are a hint at our Church socials! Lamb Fleece some are great for felting (need to know how, contact me, I’ll help you get started) Don’t forget to get some of our plants, great indoors or plant outside to enjoy in your garden next spring.

Oakview Farm: Fresh Ginger, Mustard Greens and Kale greens this week as we gear up for cooler weather. We are excited to announce that we will have a dried herbal tea blend (with lavender, chamomile, red clover, bee balm and mint) from herbs we have been drying in our greenhouse all Summer! It’s a perfect time of year for some soothing, hot tea!

Body & Soul Teas: It is that time of year where a cup of hot tea will knock the chill off. Several teas available to enjoy hot or cold:

We do our best to allow the rhythms of the earth and seasons to rule our practices throughout the year. We primarily grow and harvest live plants during the warm, growing seasons and as the cold season returns, we dry and process the herbs, using the dormant period to create our herbal products. Time of year may affect what is readily available, but we will keep our list updated.

Grown in our greenhouse on the east side of Murfreesboro, we have a variety of different herbs available in 4" liner pots. Our plants are grown from seed or cuttings in organic mix. We also offer some in dried form by the ounce as they come available.

East Fork Farm: Time to tuck your plants in for the winter chill. Order our organic worm castings for plants, trees, lawns and anything else you can grow. 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.

Several folks who visited on Wednesday were made aware of the roll-out and we also reference recipes in the product descriptions on the our site as well as provide those recipes on the backs of the packages. Not to worry on the Almond Flour as an allergen, we have a separate facility where all processing, milling, testing a packaging is performed so those customers at risk are safe as that is a priority. All first time buyers will receive a copy of our recipe sheet in case they are looking for quality cooking ideas.

Quarter Spring Farm: we have a full selection of pasture raised chickens and chicken cuts.

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!

New Grower to the Market:

Please welcome Baker Family Pastures: We are a pastured poultry and beef farm committed to raising high quality nutrient dense meat through sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. Our chickens and cows will be exclusively pasture raised with no antibiotics or chemicals; the cows are solely finished on grass only, while the chickens receive certified organic feed and fresh grass every day.
Our farm was started on family land that has been conventionally farmed for 3 generations. Our goal at Baker Family pastures is to improve the land in a regenerative way while continuing the family tradition of farming. Please join us in changing the way meat is produced and consumed for the benefit of our health and that of many generations to come. We will only be selling poultry for now until we get our Cattle herd built up for possible future sales.

Available this week from our Organic Fed Pasture Raised Chickens. Hot Breakfast Sausage, Chicken Livers, Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast, Chicken Feet, Chicken Hearts, Chicken Thighs (2), Ground Chicken, Half Chicken, and Zestly Italian Sausage.

We also have one of our new Crafters: Periwinkle and Pine Company: She makes beautiful handmade wreaths, bouquets, and decor using high quality faux florals and greenery. Excellent for seasonal gifting or brighten up your home.

also welcome; Singing Bee Honey: She is a third generation beekeeper with 15 beehives in Woodbury, Tennessee. The honey produced is 100% local, raw, unfiltered, and pure. I do everything from managing the hives to harvesting the honey and labeling the jars. My plan is to continue to expand my apiary each year to increase inventory as return and new customers increase. Right now it is all liquid honey, but I plan to add cut comb honey next year.

News from some of our Growers:

Rainbow Hill Farm: Apples available this week – Rome, Mutsu, Red Delicious, Yellow Delicious.
Acorn, Butternut, Spaghetti Squash, Cabbage 10-15 pounds great for kraut or rolls, Bell Peppers, Kennebec Potatoes, Assorted Heirloom tomatoes.

Mama D’s Bakery:
Hi everyone! We have our new items, Hummingbird Cake (with a gluten/dairy free option too), Pumpkin spice bagels, cake rolls, muffins, and Ginger Cookies available again this week.

We will also have everything else available! We have a Sourdough Sandwich Loaf, Oatmeal Cookies, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Strawberry Swirl Bread, Raspberry Swirl Bread, and Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread, Blueberry Muffins, Crusty French Bread, Organic White Wheat Bread, Mocha Muffins, Chocolate Swiss Roll, Cinnamon Rolls, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, Blueberry Lemon Yeast Rolls, Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread(with the option of nuts or not), Bagels(plain, cinnamon-raisin, blueberry, and everything), Donuts(cake and yeast), Cream Cheese Danishes, Pies(chocolate fudge, pecan, chocolate chip pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato), Cookies, Granola and Protein Bars, Yeast Breads, Sourdough Breads, and Fruit Scones. Thanks so much to everybody for your business!

Flying S Farms: Farm Fresh Eggs, Our Winter Squash varieties this week are: Carnival, Delicata, Spaghetti Squash. Fall items are Curly Leaf Lettuce, Turnip Greens, Hakurei Turnips, Kohlrabi Purple and Green, Mixed color bundles of Radishes, Sweet Potatoes and Mountain Fresh Tomatoes. Thank you for all the well wishes and concerns during Catherine’s (my) absence, she’s back on the computer and might make a surprise visit to the market once in awhile, her final procedure will be November 5th with approximately a 4-5 week reoperation.

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: We still have lots of green and growing things! Trouble is, not too many of them are in bloom this time of year, and I feel rather badly about the lack of color. However, with the cooler fall-ish weather (which hopefully may stay around), it is a really good time to plant perennials. September planting gives perennials and shrubs an opportunity to establish a good strong route system before the ground takes on a winter chill. This in turn will allow them to initiate healthy top growth in early spring, followed by plentiful blooms. This week I’ve added several spring bloomers to the market (astilbes and columbines for shade, coreopsis and creeping phlox for sun), joining a few late bloomers with flowers now (begonias, gauras, sedum, rudbeckia, turtlehead). Don’t forget our fresh-cut herbs, or if you prefer to grow your own, our herb plants. Some of the latter are a bit overgrown, but that just gives you more fresh herbs to preserve for winter use.

The Bean Man: We have our beans and bean mixes available.

The Flours are Pinto, Red, Black and White made from our Fresh Beans as well as Tapioca and Brown Rice Flour which we don’t grow grow but do process and test per our procedures. I did ask before posting the last two at the market last Wednesday. We are looking to roll out Almond Flour later in October once we get our separate milling and processing area complete as well as our isolation procedures as it is an allergen and cannot be around our other products.

We look forward to seeing you on the Porch this Wednesday from 5-6:30pm, with deliveries following. Know that our growers have the hour prior to get their products organized so things might be a bit hectic (and crowded) if you come early.

News from Our Growers:

The Bean Man: We have our beans and bean mixes available. All of our products are fresh, non-gmo and tested gluten free with no glyphosates used in growth or harvest.  We always sell our products in the same season they were harvested. The Flours are Pinto, Red, Black and White made from our Fresh Beans as well as Tapioca and Brown Rice Flour which we don’t grow grow but do process and test per our procedures. I did ask before posting the last two at the market last Wednesday. We are looking to roll out Almond Flour later in October once we get our separate milling and processing area complete as well as our isolation procedures as it is an allergen and cannot be around our other products. 

Mama D’s Bakery: Hi everyone! We have added a new item,  Hummingbird Cake (with a gluten/dairy free option too)! And in celebration of the season change we have brought our fall items back!! We now have Pumkin spice bagels, cake rolls, muffins, and Ginger Cookies available again. We will also have everything else available as well! We have a Sourdough Sandwich Loaf, Oatmeal Cookies,  Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Strawberry Swirl Bread,  Raspberry Swirl Bread, and Apple Cinnamon Swirl Bread, Blueberry Muffins, Crusty French Bread, Organic White Wheat Bread, Mocha Muffins, Chocolate Swiss Roll, Cinnamon Rolls, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, Blueberry Lemon Yeast Rolls, Banana Bread and Pumpkin Bread(with the option of nuts or not), Bagels(plain, cinnamon-raisin, blueberry, and everything), Donuts(cake and yeast), Cream Cheese Danishes, Pies(chocolate fudge, pecan, chocolate chip pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato), Cookies, Granola and Protein Bars, Yeast Breads, Sourdough Breads, and Fruit Scones. Thanks so much to everybody for your business!! Periwinkle and Pine Company: We have beautiful handmade wreaths, bouquets, and decor using high quality faux florals and greenery.

Singing Bee Honey: I am a third generation beekeeper with 15 beehives in Woodbury, Tennessee. The honey produced is 100% local, raw, unfiltered, and pure.

Flying S Farms:  Our produce this week includes: Bok Choy and Napa Cabbage, Acorn Squash, Butternut Squash, Carnival, Delicata, Spaghetti and Long Island Cheese Pumpkin (delicious), Clemson Okra, Green Sweet Peppers and Mountain Fresh Tomatoes.
Thank you everyone for your assistances helping with the market,  prayers, best wishes, cards, delicious meals during my absence. I believe the worst is over, still few more things that need to be done.

Carole’s Herbs/CS3 Farms: Check out our FB site /CS3Farms for our recently launched culinary herb lessons or email Carter for more information. You can learn about herbs to cook with that are also medicinal and test your knowledge! We will be having an on farm learning experience this Saturday, October 2, so mark your calendars!

Dogwood Valley Greenhouse: We still have lots of green and growing things! Trouble is, not too many of them are in bloom this time of year, and I feel rather badly about the lack of color. However, with the cooler fall-ish weather (which hopefully may stay around), it is a really good time to plant perennials. September planting gives perennials and shrubs an opportunity to establish a good strong route system before the ground takes on a winter chill. This in turn will allow them to initiate healthy top growth in early spring, followed by plentiful blooms. This week I’ve added several spring bloomers to the market (astilbes and columbines for shade, coreopsis and creeping phlox for sun), joining a few late bloomers with flowers now (begonias, gauras, sedum, rudbeckia, turtlehead). Don’t forget our fresh-cut herbs, or if you prefer to grow your own, our herb plants. Some of the latter are a bit overgrown, but that just gives you more fresh herbs to preserve for winter use.

NEW GROWERS Periwinkle and Pine Company
Beautiful handmade wreaths, bouquets, and decor using high quality faux florals and greenery.

Singing Bee Honey: I am a third generation beekeeper with 15 beehives in Woodbury, Tennessee. The honey produced is 100% local, raw, unfiltered, and pure. I do everything from managing the hives to harvesting the honey and labeling the jars. I have different jar sizes available and some squeeze bottles. Sizes range from 12oz (gift size) up to quart size (48oz) to appeal to different buyers. My plan is to continue to expand my apiary each year to increase inventory as return and new customers increase. Right now it is all liquid honey, but I plan to add cut comb honey next year.

Many have asked about Catherine – she is doing good; she has almost completed the worst of her surgery process and will have a brief break before the final stages are complete.  She is anxious to get back in the kitchen.
