Cedar Grove Farm:  Cedar Grove Farm CSA Availability for October 24


Dear Friends and Neighbors,

This nice mild autumn weather is making for a good growing season with several summer crops still coming in along with the cold tolerant crops getting a good start. We still have okra, peppers, eggplant and squash. A nice savoy leaf cabbage and the fat Watermelon radish are new this week and arugula and broccoli are back. The turnips and watermelon are not available although the turnips will return.

FYI, we have planted a big plot of garlic for next year – twice as much as this year’s crop – and there are 2000 strawberry plants on the porch ready to go in the ground this week. The onion slips and shallot bulbs will be started soon. Next spring is going to be big. We hope everyone will come back and tell your friends about us, too.

The market is open. Good eating.

Regards, Farmer Jay

Local Farms First:  Last day to order local! Applesauce!



Greetings local food lovers!

Applesauce is a great solution to preserving the last of the season’s apples!

Still some apples left on the market

Simply quarter them up and simmer in liquid (like a gallon of Delicious Orchard’s cider , cinnamon & spices and lemon juice.

When the apples are soft, mash them up or process in a food processor for a smoother finish.

Thanks for supporting local family farms!

Shoestring Acres:  WEEK TWENYT -THREE


Time to look at those warm comfort food menus…baked squash,pumpkin goodies and savory stews. I realized last week how much warmer you farther east so you don’t have quite our lower temperatures.
Broccoli -roasted with lemon, cauliflower-and cheddar soup,just some of the late season goodies.
As you may notice eggs are limited in availability..the americanas have gone into winter mode of low production and the brown eggs are also limited.
There are some tomatoes and peppers still available.

Location.
Good morning everyone.
The Market is open. I’d like to thank everyone for giving us some of the biggest weeks in sales that we’ve seen all season. I’m sure it has everything to do with the fact that our market is still bursting. It’s like the hard, drought-ridden summer never happened. We are, once again, abundant.
We should also feel grateful that we are in Little Rock. Beyond the simple truth of Little Rock’s hidden greatness, this city enjoys a thriving local food scene. Perhaps the most thriving in Arkansas. Besides benefiting from a multitude of farms, produce, and meat, we have an unbelievable energy for food. People are engaged; potential stretches out in every direction. We love our own communities and the things that grown from them. So, while the market is packed right now with local fare, it’s equally filled by your energy and enthusiasm. Here is the proof that buying locally makes a serious impact: look around you. Look at all the markets, the events, the people, the ideas that have sprouted in the last few years, as more of us reinvest in our own community. If location is so important, I’d say that we’ve all landed in the right spot.
Some things to note:
Farm Girl has added pasture-raised chickens to their repertoire
*Kent Walker has added a new Muenster style cheese

Plenty of live plants from ABC Greenhouse, Drewry Farm, Willow Spring, and Tammu Sue
A heckuva lot of vegetables
Arkansas Black Apples
Let’s enjoy another week of full grocery bags!
Sincerely,
Sam Hedges
