Miami County Locally Grown:  Winners and Awesome News!!


First of all, Congratulations to our June Refer-A-Friend winner… Sandy Ehlrich!!

And our Vendor Appreciation gift goes to the Buehler Family!!

Between Phil and Matt Buehler who supply our popular pork products, and Josh and Stephanie (J & S Buehler Family Farm) with their beef (as well as son Landon’s famous eggs!), their family has promoted this market and supported this concept every step of the way since our inception, from those early days prior to securing our own Heath Dept license, when Phil came down with his freezer van to be able to store their beef and pork until you came to pick it up. You have to appreciate the type of people who are always first to arrive and last to leave, ones you know you can always count on. Kinder folks you’re not likely to meet, and I’m so grateful to have had their help and backing for this market!! Thanks to you all :-)

Thanks especially to Stephanie for the tender chuck roast samples tonight at pick-up!! Mmmmm – and oh so simple!!

Speaking of simple, which is just what we need as we head into a busy summer, King’s Poultry has two essential new products to unveil tonight…

Chicken Pot Pies, and Chicken Bone Broth!!

No joke – you’ve asked for convenient meal options, and what could be better than a delicious 9" pot pie with King’s fabulous chicken, plus veggies and gravy that you didn’t have to fix?? Just pop it in the oven and you have delicious dinner!! Plus versatile Bone Broth, from King’s non-GMO chicken, I didn’t have to make? Amazing!!

Congratulations to A Taste of Sugar Bakery, who passed her Home Bakery inspection and will now offer all kinds of cheesecakes, pies, and desserts on the Market! Yay!

And so everyone knows, this is the Last Week to order before Fourth of July – the Market WILL NOT reopen next Tuesday after pick-up!! We will take a one-week break and open back up on Tue evening July 3rd with even more local goodness – we’re open this week for orders until 8pm Sunday just as normal, but then NO orders next week!!

Happy Shopping!!

New Field Farm's Online Market:  Cucumbers and rain


Greetings,

We got over an inch of rain yesterday which was desperately needed. We can stop irrigating for a week!

Meanwhile, the cucumbers in the hoop house are coming in well and the Sakura cherry tomatoes have begun, though in modest quantity so far. The basil *in the greenhouse is abundant and the first planting of *scallions have started to size up so we can offer those.

If you have a problem ordering or a question about the CSA don’t hesitate to call or email.

Wildlife are active these days. A while ago a fox grabbed one of our chickens. I yelled at it and the fox let her go. The hen was in shock for some time, but recovered. It was the second time it had happened to her! And one morning we watched a bobcat walk along the top of the stone wall that runs by our house.
Then there’s a flock of young turkeys and their mother hen often passing through the field. I give them wide birth, having seen what a hen will do to protect her chicks. It’s intimidating, as are the barn swallows who swoop down on us now to protect their young who are leaving the nest. They stand around on the barn floor looking kind of befuddled before they figure out how to fly.

In the past week we had a young deer appear on the farm, it’s budding antlers covered in velvet. One day it stood and watched me mow round and round on the tractor which was unusual. I waved hello. Then the night after we removed the posts strung with twine and mylar around some of the crops which is meant to deter deer the buck helped himself to a lot of chard and some lettuce. He reappeared in the chard the next day and was indifferent to Madeleine running towards him waving her arms until finally deciding to avoid the crazy person. The next time he was grazing on some weeds and I got within about 50 feet, explaining that he really needed to go somewhere else. I tossed a rock at his feet and he dutifully went into the woods. After appearing a couple of more times and being discouraged by us, he hasn’t been seen now for a few days. Maybe he got the point or maybe he was ill which was the cause of the curious behavior.

Thank you for your orders.

Enjoy,
Tim

Manchester Locally Grown:  Reminder: Ordering Closes at 10 pm




Manchester Locally Grown market





We always have a few new farmers, waiting their turn to join our market and offer their wonderful products to all our customers. In order to add more farmers, we feel it would be best to grow our customer base a bit. We want to be able to offer you and your friends some new local farm products.

The farmers and market managers would really appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about our fantastic market. What a great local resource for fresh, local farm products. Please pick up a few business cards to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Advertising is very expensive, and we want to use our slim market funds in a responsible manner.

Good morning!




This is just a friendly reminder to place your order online by 10 pm this evening.

It seems as though every week, someone says, “I meant to order last week, but forgot till about 9:45.” Well, that’s fine, for two reasons:

1. Every single order placed before I close the market will be filled, unless the farmers run out of some items; and

2. I never close the market at 10:00 sharp. It just doesn’t happen (and to those who know me, that comes as no surprise.) It may be closer to midnight before it gets turned off. However, it’s better not to put off ordering, because some items may be sold out.

Lastly, remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word. Surveys indicate that word of mouth is the most effective form of advertisement. Please help us advertise our fantastic growing market!

See you on Thursday!


Blessings,
Michael & Linda
