Greener Acres Farm: Rain, Rain, Go Away !!
The Struggle is Real
This gloomy, rainy weather not only lowers our spirits; it makes it very difficult for the farmers to get their crops in the ground. We have been trying to get things in the ground, but Mother Nature is definitely making it a challenge. Let’s say a prayer for some nice sunny, breezy weather to help dry out the fields a bit.

Miami County Locally Grown: Free TOUR at King's Poultry!!
Thanks to King’s Poultry Farm for featuring MCLG on their Store Spotlight!! We are growing with your help spreading the word about our little Market!!
And the time for the FREE tour of King and Son’s Bradford plant is almost here!! Mark your calendars for Saturday June 16th at 10am!!
Featured as a stop on the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association’s Farm Tour Series, we’ll have the opportunity to tour one of the ONLY federally inspected poultry processors in the state of Ohio!! Folks from as far as Michigan, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina come to utilize the King’s incredible facility and customer service – and they’re in OUR backyard?! Awesome!! :-)
See their pristine facility where they process flocks of every size, including the birds they raise with Non-GMO feed on their own farm – what better way to guarantee the highest quality products than by handling EVERYTHING from the raising to creating the brat recipes to carefully wrapping the final frozen package?!
There’ll be plenty of time to ask questions, visit their retail store, and maybe even learn how to improve your own efficiency in processing your backyard flock (or realize how well and affordably they can take care of that for you!)?
Sign up today on The Market – we’re open til 8pm :-)

Manchester Locally Grown: Time to Order Fresh Local Farm Products!
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.
Welcome to this week’s offerings from your online farmers’ market. Everything you see on our website is the “cream of the crop” from local farmers, the best products picked and made with pride especially for YOU! When you place an order with our farms, you know you are supporting your friends and neighbors, most located within 30 miles of Manchester, Tennessee.
The market will remain open for your orders till Tuesday at 10 pm.

Amy from Solace Farm writes:
Garlic scapes are back! They are a once-and-done crop, so they’ll only be here for maybe 2 weeks, so get them now! I sell these cut about 8” long for roasting – we drizzle them with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and a sprinkle of salt, and roast (or just sauté) until tender and sweet, they’re amazing! We prefer this to asparagus!

One more week…my children and I have one more week of school to get through, and then freedom! We are looking forward to summer, sleeping in, swimming, special activities and camps, movie days, and having the freedom to come and go without any certain schedule. We will take our annual trips to Savannah in June and the North Carolina mountains in July.
If you are a longtime reader of this blog, you know that summer is my favorite season. Not only do I celebrate the arrival of another birthday, I also celebrate the arrival of tomato season and peach season! I am looking forward to dining on caprese salad and canning batches of peach salsa.
I hope you all have a restful Sunday. Thank you for supporting locally grown agriculture, and we look forward to seeing you at the Market.
