Conyers Locally Grown: Available for Friday January 4
I hope everyone has had a Merry Christmas. I sure hope you also start off with a Very Happy New Year as well.
The market is open and the gardens are still growing. We have gotten plenty of moisture. We just need a bit more light. That is coming along but the cold weather is rearing it head. We will have plenty of veggies to go with a few mushrooms.
We plan to deliver a few pigs to the market soon so look for some new supplies.
We will be making our regular milk run up this week so make sure you order up.
Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts. We enjoy being your farmers.
Thank you for all your support. Please remember to have your orders placed by 8PM on Tuesday. We will see you on Friday between 5PM and 7PM at Copy Central (1264 Parker Road, Conyers) and don’t forget to share us with a friend.

Cedar Grove Farm: Cedar Grove Farm CSA Availabilty for January 3
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Happy New Year. We here at Cedar Grove Farm hope that your holidays have been good for you and that 2013 will be even better than 2012. It’s great to be back to start the new year with some fresh vegetables from the garden. Farmer Sara is still away on a well deserved holiday, so I’m back with the first harvest of 2013.
The hoop houses are full of many of your cold weather favorites. Even with the short, rainy days slowing things down we still have some fine choices. Arugula, beets, carrots, lettuces and kale are available as are the still very plentiful and nutritious Beauregard sweet potatoes. One new item to look for are sweet and succulent sugar snap pea shoots. We had hoped to bring in a harvest of sugar snap peas, but the cold weather wiped out the pods. Fortunately, the shoots on the vines are abundant and delicious. Dylan says he has been snacking on these sweet treats every time he is in the hoop house, and he is eager to share the goodness.
Please remember, pickup is at Lindsey’s Culinary Market on Thursday from 3:30 to 6:00PM and payment during the Winter season is expected at delivery unless your balance covers the charge.
The market is open. I hope you find something you like.
Regards, Farmer Jay
Conway, AR: OPening Bell and SSAWG Scholarships
Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and now it’s time to celebrate the New Year! I hope you’ll find room in your New Year’s resolutions for something related to food. For inspiration, here’s mine: I vow, under penalty of self loathing, to never again visit a drive through restaurant. My reasons for this resolution are as follows: 1) Using my money to support the fast food industry and its industrial agriculture complex undermines everything that my work in the local food movement stands for; 2) Fast food is really unhealthy, and since I’m not a college athlete any more, I can no longer just burn off whatever ridiculously caloric concoctions I stuff in my mouth; 3) Eating while driving is physically dangerous, and on an intellectual level, eating while driving takes all thought and significance out of food – what joy can there be in eating something so commodified, so intentionally mindless, that it can be eaten while operating a motor vehicle? By the way, around 19% of our meals are now consumed in a car (www.cbsnews.com/2100-204_162-1029857.html). So there’s some food for thought. What’s your
This year the CLG Community Fund will provide scholarships to the SSAWG Conference to Tammy Pope of Tammy Sue’s Critters, Sandra Leyva of La Lucha Space and Eddie Stuckey of Kellogg Valley Farms. Here is why Tammy would like to attend the conference.
The reason I want to attend this conference, is that we are at crossroads in our farming adventure. I quit my day job a few months ago, and I am now devoting all of my time to our farm and growing our business. We have a farm of dairy goats. We also have a flock of chickens and several beehives. We are producing goat’s milk bath and beauty products. We also are now making beeswax products to increase our line and diversify. I feel attending this conference will give us invaluable information to grow and better manage our farming practices.
Good Work CLG Community!

ALFN Local Food Club: Rainbow Carrots and Snowpeas
New Year’s Day! One last chance to get those regrets in before you wipe the slate clean. That’s how life works, right? For those of you who will actually stay up for midnight and beyond, I wish you well.
There are beautiful Rainbow Carrots and Snowpeas from Laughing Stock Farm on our market. Organic and eager for some new year digestion.
And last but not least, a little sharing from Farm Girl in these wintry days of snow:
“We were swamped with over 16 inches out here in Perry Co and have been walking to tend our cattle on leased land several miles away. Here’s a pic of our pigs playing in the snow. Two of our chicken coops were crushed, but no birds injured. Otherwise the damage was limited to downed trees and limbs on our electric fences, which we have mostly cleared now.
And check out this “pic” of their pig, happy in the snow. If this link doesn’t work, check it out on Facebook!
