Growers News:

Several Growers have taken the week off to spend time with their family during the Easter Season.

Pinky’s Micros: Microgreens and sprouts are extremely dense in vital enzymes, minerals and vitamins and chlorophyll. There aren’t many foods you could eat that are fresher. Put on your sandwhich, top your salads with them or use in place of lettuce.

This week: Seasonal Chef’s Blend; this is our specialty customized microgreen blend! Every season we’ll be creating new blends represent each season. Our Winter Blend has Romaine, Celery, Kale Confetti and Red Bull Beets. Along with Pea, Radish, Cinnamon Basil, Broccoli, Basic salad Mix and Sunflower.

Enjoy a dazzling array of new flavors. Plants are at their absolute peak of flavor intensity at this stage of life.

Shroomegy Gourmet Mushrooms: It’s been a busy few weeks here at Shroomegy. We are working hard to bring you great fresh mushrooms! I have been using Lion’s Mane powder in my morning coffee in the ratio of 3 parts coffee to 1 part mushroom powder to up my antioxidants. I feel great! We are also working on a new mushroom jerky recipe with oyster mushrooms. I will be sure to add it to the recipes when I get it just right.

RC Farm: Enjoy our large selection of produce grown in our greenhouse and/or hydroponically. We have added several other items to our inventory. Fried pies, cakes, pies and breads.

NashPhilly: Have added a new item Soup, Broccoli and Cheese! This seems to be a popular soup in Tennessee, and after making it I can see why. It’s wholesome, filling and warms your soul after having a bowl. If you have sour dough bread on hand I highly recommend dunking it in your soup. Ingredients: Broccoli, onions, carrots, butter, flour, vegetable stock, heavy cream, cheddar cheese, thyme, garlic, bay leaf, black pepper, parsley, nutmeg and Himalayan sea salt. this is vegetarian, but it is not gluten free, other items still available. Minestrone Soup, New England Clam Chowder as well as Gnocchi with Roasted Garlic Marinara Sauce! Several other delicious prepared meal items in ‘Noodles, Pasta and Italian Sauces’ available this week: Beef and Cheese Lasagna Family Portion and Single Portion, Cajun Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo and Chicken Marsala and in ‘Seasonal Side Dishes’ Brussel Sprouts with Carmelized Onions and Bacon, Mashed Potatoes with sour cream and green onions. Watch for some new items coming soon!

Rus-T-Acres: Our Chickens have finally started laying again! This winter has been ruff on our feather ‘friends’. Be sure to checkout our several delicious selections of Beef and Pork.

Flying S Farms: Let’s talk Chicken Eggs, they are picking up their production! We can now offer by the dozen or a bundle of 3 dozen!. Brownies, Friendship Breads and Sour Dough to choose from. We are having a SALE…purchase a Pumpkin Butter and get one free!! Still available is our delicious Apple Butter and Fig Jam from local Turkey Fig Tree are great anytime of the year. Apple Jamely (almost a jelly but thick like a jam) HOT Jams – Seriously Hot Strawberry and Habanero Peach are a hit. Warm some up and put over cream cheese and serve with crackers – yummy!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!
