Dear Friends,
We wish you a very happy Thanksgiving day. We hope you have family coming or you going to family or friends. Our wild turkeys are glad that we are a wildlife sanctuary! So are the deer and the raccoons and the opossums. Everyone will have a nice meal here. We are happy to share. Please have a look at what we have and place your orders. If you have a special request that we could grow for you, please say so.

Thank you for being our customers and our friends.

BAIN HOME GARDENS: Market Friends,
How are you all? We sure hope this cool weather finds you warm and snuggly this beautiful evening.

Our okra plants WILL NOT DIE! We have been keeping a select few pods on the stalk to save seeds for next year but even the smaller plants just refuse to give up! This would not be issue if we were not cramped for space. So today they were pulled up with an assist by Mr. Duke. Here at Bain Home Gardens everyone earns their keep. Working together to bring home grown goodness from our family to yours!

HAWKINS HOMESTEAD: Well guys, it’s happened. Fall is definitely upon us! The temperature is all over the place and it has definitely gotten cold at night. So cold in fact, that we turned our heat on at night for the first time last week. Of course with the weather changing, we want to make sure that everyone is taken care of so we’ve been checking to make sure our birds are snug outside in the big coop. We gave it a good scrubbing this past weekend and put some extra bedding in there to make sure everyone is nice and warm.

With the addition of cool weather and shorter days, the hens have gone on hiatus. Sad, but true. I will speak to you guys more about this in the next few weeks.

Thank you to everyone who tried out our basil pesto! We hope you enjoyed it. That was the last of our beautiful basil. For now we are concentrating on cool season vegetables, turning over beds, and saving seeds for next year.

HORTONS FARM: Some of you may know that we have been undergoing barn renovations in an effort to streamline the various things we do up here in beautiful Echo, AL. Today the Mr. and I mapped out a plan to include a combination kitchen/storage she-shed space for Ros. This means all the honey extraction, containers, pouring, storage, making candles, soaps, lip balms, creating new products, etc, etc, etc, can be moved OUT OF THE HOUSE. Hallelujah!

MARY’S PEEPS: I am so sorry for all the cancelled orders and not being there for all my customers in the past couple months, as I care for each and every one of you. It has been some bad times for me health wise. I have had some serious and difficult procedures, and only time will staighten them out. I keep hoping for thngs to go back to normal,  and God willing they will. Your prayers  are always welcome and appreciated. Thank you all and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. Maybe 2018 will bring health and hope for a new year.  Mary Dale Peeples. (editor’s note: Please keep this dear lady in your prayers for health and healing!)

Richter Farms: Wishing all our wonderful customers-friends a Very Happy Thanksgiving! May you have a blessed time with family and friends! Love and hugs, Viki Richter

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!

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.

Good morning!

I’m not going to pretend that this is a “newsletter,” for I spent all day on Friday making kissing balls for Wildwood Christmas Tree Farm in Woodbury. It’s late, I’m tired, and this time “no news is good news.” I do know that we will be missing a couple of farms this week, as the owners are traveling for Thanksgiving. But I also know that most of our farmers are still in town, and happy to help you out with your meal planning this week.

The market is NOW open for ordering! Please try to place your order early so you don’t forget. Please look through the various market categories to see what’s new this week. At a glance, I see a shampoo bar and luffa body scrubber, both from Solace Farm. I’m reasonably sure there may be other new items among the 778 fresh, local farm products available this week. See what you can find!

The market will close on MONDAY at 10 pm.

Pickup will be on WEDNESDAY between 4:00 and 5:30 at the normal location.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration with your family. We have so much to be thankful for! And we are very thankful for each of you! See you on Wednesday!

Michael & Linda
