Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm Week of Apr 15 2018


just when we were all set for spring, nice surprise major snow and rainy weather over last few days, we got about 70ml of precipitation! Ground is very sodden, will be a late spring planting outdoors this year.

But the greenhouses are looking good. As I ve been telling y’all for a month now, I have lovely greens: young and tender kale, green chard, rainbow chard, lettuce. It’s prime, picked same day, will keep for couple weeks in the fridge. I’ve put it on two for one special, that is, I’ve doubled the standard quantity per bunch. Eat more greens, should be a mantra. There are french breakfast radishes now at harvestable size.

There the eggs, pastured meats are your healthy source for protein and animal fats. Have you gotten unbrainwashed yet about eating crisco, bechel, margarine etc. instead of butter, lard, fatty meats? I pork lard, minced ready to render or use as is.

Stewing Hens are on special, discount $2 off the kilo price.

Did you notice my 20lb beef pack? Less than a quarter but still good selection of cuts, steaks, roasts, burger, for $220.

I have large caliber trees for sale, which I raised here, at a very good price, $15. For 25mm diameter minimum and at last 2m tall. Ready to plant: cherry birch, osage orange, butternut, all Carolinian ian forest species we need in our forest canopy here.

I have formulated a winning compost from the cow manure and straw in last year’s bedding ammended with biochar and active microbes. Price is $3/bushel (35L) or bulk $60/cu yard (22 bushel) Bring your own containers or trailer which I can load with my tractor.

Cami made beef broth this week, very aromatic.

I hope you’ll take a minute to write your MP about the Kinder Morgan pipeline. It’s become our Standing Rock north. A prime minister who is willing to give or invest millions in a US pipeline co, is no prime minister of mine. He should instead invest in the renewable infrastructure that could give us a chance at seeing habitable conditions remain intact in our lifetimes.

This is what I wrote to MP Filomena Tassi to:Filomena.tassi@parl.gc.ca 5 days ago. I hope you can too, even just cut and paste this and edit to your liking.
Dear Filomena,
I wish I could have been in cabinet as you discussed how to proceed on the KM stalemate.
Unlikely as it seems, I hope Justin stands down from his absolute endorsement and commitment to getting Alberta oil to the world market.
This is quite possibly the Alamo for the climate; build KM and the world ecosystem is set for destruction within a human lifetime. A world as we know it gone forever.
On the other hand our government could make this the most important decision of modern times; to once and for all to see, to take the climate crisis seriously, to stand up to oil interests and the American government, to make the issues the topic of wide and far reaching public debate.

Of course mothballing KM will mean crashing world oil markets and even the stock market. We need to be prepared for that anyway.
It could mean the end of any chance at re-election for you and your party, this June.

The world is watching. Did Justin and Canada indulge our capacity to keeping hoping that the climate agreement in Paris is our firm commitment?
Or did he dance the tune, not walk the talk?

I hope to hear from you about these thoughts,

Yours truly,
Ian Graham

Healthy eating,
Ian and Cami

Heritage Farm :  Seafood Update


All,

Apparently the seafood vendor did not understand that, as we have done for the last 4 months, when he came back to Atlanta we would want another wholesale order.

We had inquired, at the request of one of our customers, on whether or not we would be able to get in one more order before they left for Alaska. The response was “yes. we will be back in Atlanta on the 14th.”

We assumed that it would be business as usual one more time but that was not the case. They arrived with only a few pieces of fish and some tiger shrimp so we were unable to get ANY of the orders we were expecting.

We regret any inconvenience this has caused you and will begin making the account refunds shortly…hopefully we can get a clearer understanding with them when they return in the fall.

Thanks,
Heritage farm

GFM :  While Mother Nature Seems Confused, Our Vendors Are Ready!


As we begin our new week and prepare to open the online market, we have some thoughts to share with you all. This wild Spring weather will challenge us, but we will push onward. Our GFM online and physical market customers want fresh produce and locally-produced crafts. Our participating growers and crafters are dedicated to delivering on your expectations!

More Wacky Weather From Mother Nature

Flashback about one month ago and we posted a blog on this very site talking about Mother Nature’s wild tricks. Spring one day, Winter the next, Spring again, ooops— here’s Winter. Well sadly my friends, we’ve been duped again. Just about an hour prior to my writing this update, I let the dog out only to get pelted by sleet and freezing rain.

Alas, despite the whims of Mother Nature, our potatoes, luffas, garlic, swiss chard and more are already in the ground. So, we’re hoping and praying we get back to warm weather and stay with it until market opening day on May 12th.

*is the wild weather affecting your Spring garden plans? Feel free to share your story with us. Email: greenevillefarmersmarket@gmail.com and, with your permission, we’ll share your story with our customers in the weeks to come.

Our market customers are awaiting your talent, craft, or produce!

We touched on this last week, but it is still on our hearts. When you see the joy of a farmer’s market customer coming up to your table and smiling as they exchange their hard-earned money for the produce you’ve sweated and toiled to produce on your land, it’s a glorious feeling. Farmer’s markets create win-win situations.

Our question for you is this: What good, skill, or service are you holding back from the Greenville community? We’re actively seeking new vendors, crafters, and teachers who can provide workshops at our market this year. Please, reach out to Judy Shelton @ 552-3023 if you have any questions about becoming a vendor, or about providing a workshop this season.

Is your small garden producing an excess of some crop every season? Are you spending a lot of time canning, preserving and drying your excess? Well, our market customers might be eagerly searching for that crop you produce. If you don’t step up and become a vendor, they may never get what they’re after. Help us bring an abundance and a variety to our wonderful Greeneville fresh produce buyers this season.

Become a vendor on our online market today as well!


We wish you all the best this week and Spring gets back on her feet and tries to stand tall against the last blows of Winter. Are your crops in the ground? Are you taking all the steps required to ensure a plentiful and abundant harvest this year? Get out there sow, so that you may reap in season!
