Conway, AR: NEW GROWERS! Opening Bell: Chicken, Honey, Rice, Eggs!
This week I had planned to announce a new Grower, but instead, I’m announcing TWO NEW GROWERS! Please read about their operations and production methods under the OUR GROWERS tab at the top of the page.
First, Judith Allen runs SalScillia Farm in Mayflower. Look for a variety of vegetables, eggs, and baked goods. Her hens are fed non-GMO, omega-rich grain. Interestingly enough, Judith plans her garden based on what YOU want her to grow. You can contact her, or contact Steve and I will pass your message on to her to let her know what vegetables you would like to see at the market next spring. Welcome Judith and family from SalScillia Farm!
Also welcome Greg and Kinsey Bradford from Bradford Valley Farm in Damascus! They are a young family looking to produce more food from their 50 acre operation. Currently they have Eggs and Pasture-Raised Chicken (Breasts, Drumsticks, Thighs, Feet, Liver, Backs, and Whole Birds), with plans to list Pork products around mid-September, and vegetables next year.
These families are producing food the right way, right here in our area. Eat Local! Now is a great time to talk to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers about trying Conway Locally Grown. The more people we have ordering food, the more our Growers can enhance their production capabilities for next season and beyond!
Apologies for the missing Zipper peas from Drewry Orchard. They were all ready and labeled, but in all the hustle of running a farm, they were forgotten when the rest of the items were loaded up. The good news is, you can order them again this week!
Tamales! Also on Friday, Doña Estela and her amazing homemade Tamales! She will make them Friday morning and have them at market Friday afternoon. They will be 5 for $7 in 3 flavors: Pork, Chicken, or Jalapeño & Cheese. To get an idea of how many she should prepare, please add a note to your order, or text me at 501-339-1039. If you do that, she will have your Tamales labeled for you. She may bring extras too. Delicious with sides of refried beans and rice, topped with a bit of salsa. They freeze very well so get some for several meals.
The Locals Food Recovery Program is looking for volunteers. Help us save food from the landfill and reroute it to hungry bellies! Partnering with Harps Food Store, The Locals Food Recovery Program has saved 4,760 pounds of food over the last 5 months. Volunteers pick up produce Tuesdays and Fridays. If you would like to help out visit http://www.thelocals.be/food_recovery for more info.
You will find some really good sale prices on several Pork items from Bar C and Grass Roots. On the main market page, just type in SALE in the search field and hit SEARCH.
Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. Almost 700 items available now!
Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!
And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)
