Events You Won’t Want to Miss

Happening NEXT Friday, May 4th, The First Friday Film Series, hosted by Grayson LandCare & Church of the Good Shepherd brings documentary films to the public, complete with popcorn and panel discussions afterward. Church of the Good Shepherd: 9441 Grayson Pkwy, Galax.
This film promises not to disappoint.
Filmed across four seasons in the farming cycle, LOOK & SEE blends observational scenes of farming life, interviews with farmers and community members with evocative, carefully framed shots of the surrounding landscape. Thus, in the spirit of Berry’s agrarian philosophy, Henry County itself will emerge as a character in the film – a place and a landscape that is deeply interdependent with the people that inhabit it.

Agricultural Innovations Expo is happening next Saturday, May 5th from 9am-1pm at the Grayson County High School. Free Admission, exhibits, demonstrations, kids activities, box lunches by Culinary Arts Students, greenhouse plants available for sale, Land Stewardship competition open to the public, awards start at 1pm.

Thank you all so much for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!

Champaign, OH:  Wednesday Comes Calling


Good morning!!

Just your market manager reminding you that the market will be closing at 8am, this morning, for the week!!

Such a fog filled, drizzly, dreary morning…I’m nestled at my desk with coffee, Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks album spinning, and working on my own ordering for the market.

It’s the perfect time to groove in, and throw us some love…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

The Cumming Harvest:  This week on The Cumming Harvest

What did you think of the market pickup setup last week? As The Cumming Harvest welcomes new customers, we are quickly outgrowing our little home. So while the weather is nice, Saturday morning pickup will be outside!

Did you get to meet Reggie at the market last Saturday? Grow with the Flow, aka Reggie and Roger Ramos, joined the market last fall and have been providing us with greens for most of the winter. So it’s about time they had a proper introduction! Catalyzed by their mother’s battle with cancer eight years ago, these two GA Tech grads and military vets decided they seriously wanted to address the kinds of food that they ate. After a series of internships in the Atlanta area (one of which with own Cane Creek Farm), they were ready to grow their own food but were faced with the challenge of acquiring affordable farmable land in urban Atlanta. As an innovative solution to their own limited access to land, and in an effort to replace the wasteful American lawn, these two engineers have established Certified Naturally Grown “market gardens” in homeowners’ lawns in their Tucker neighborhood, using their own lawn as “home base.” Participating homeowners in turn receive a CSA-style share of vegetables each week. Known affectionately as “the Grow bros,” their slogan is “Grow- don’t mow!” Reggie and Roger also work with other organizations in their neighborhood, such as Tucker Orchard Guild, to strengthen their communities’ access to fresh food. Reggie recently became a Food Innovation Fellow through Food Well Alliance and is on a mission to bring a mobile food processing/ refrigeration unit to other farmers who may not have the funds to purchase necessary but expensive equipment. These modest brothers bring their produce to The Cumming Harvest each week, so let’s support the good that they do for us!

Welcome back Weedy Soil and Sweet Pea Garden! Veggies are abundant!

HomeSpun Baking Company has a new product: check out their gluten-free sandwich bread.

Southern Grass Meat is having a SALE on a variety of items, including Back Ribs, Knuckle Bones, and Ground Beef.

There is just a little bit of Meadow Valley Amish CHEESE left. We have Baby Swiss, Gouda, Havarti, Cheddar, and Pepper Jack.

STRAWBERRIES BY WATSONIA FARMS are on the market again this week.

Cultured Traditions won’t be listing this week, but they will be back on May 12!
