Old99Farm Market:  Upcoming Bionutrient food conference online

How much nutrition is really in our food? That is the raison d’etre of the Bionutrient Food Assoc and its conference-

Did you know that the nutrition facts panel on the side food package does not come from testing the food in it?

Are you aware of the process by which those numbers show up on the side of a package?

What is the path forward to getting those numbers to represent reality? Especially if you are producing or distributing food that is nutritionally superior?

Not that a nutritional facts panel is the be all and end all of where we want to be going, but it is where reality sits now for those who do buy food in a store.

Meet Tina Owens. With a career’s experience in the food industry, she is one of our foremost translators of how the system works so that those of us who want to engage know the rules of the road.


Don’t forget, the market closes today at 9pm :)

It really felt like floating…

And, for more good, local, seasonal news, the market welcomes the first round of radishes from our wonder girls of JCGrowers!!!!! Make sure to get those while they have them!! They have the best!!!

Asparagus is still going strong!!! Get it before it’s going, going, gone!!! You can also pick this up in the retail shop, on site, at Oakview Farm Meats! Remember, the shop, and this market are the only places you will get Harrigan’s Harvest Asparagus, this year!!

Also, Lettuce Be Groovy lettuce from Hippie and the Farmer!! Small batches from small harvests!! Cut for your orders, right before market pick up!!

And, these seasonal delights are only some of the amazing local loveliness on the market!!

Champaign, OH:  Thursday Market Pick Up!

Good morning, lovely customers of the market!!

There are a lot of you, today, and many returning for the spring/summer season after being gone for the winter!

Just a few updates/reminders…

The new market pick up times are 3pm-5:30pm, today!

If you need a Friday pick up, please alert me, if you are not already a Friday pick up! Those times for pick up are from 10am-12pm!

If you need a Saturday pick up, again, please alert me, and the pick up times on that day are 10am-4pm!

ALSO…I spent last week, clearing out old/expired credit card information!! If you think your card may be expired, and want to add a new one, you can call me, or just let me know at pick up! It does take a bit of time to do it at pick up, but totally, no worries!!

Your other options are cash, in a ziplock bag with your name on it, a check made out to Oakview Farm Meats, or you can pay with a card, even if you don’t want to keep in on file. Keeping a card on file just allows you to breeze through at pick up, get your order, and go on your way!! It’s all totally up to you!!

If you are a new customer, you will just pull into the drive, at the farm, and drive to the greenhouse door. We will be getting your order packed up, and will then bring it to your car! It’s just so easy!

Tonight, we have the added seasonal delights like asparagus, and lettuce…it may take just a tad more time to grab those items and get into your order.

We also see the return of my father, helping, tonight, after he was away at the beach. As always, I thank you for chatting with him, and making an 84 year old’s day…he loves the market!!

We love your support of the market, and we thank you, kindly!

Foothills Market:  Market Reminder

There are still a couple of hours to put in an order on Foothills Market for this week. Don’t miss your chance for good, fresh, local food!

Grumpy Goat:  Summer Hours, Flour Sale, and Kreppel Time!!!!

We hope everyone survived unscathed through last nights tornados. That was definitely a close one. If anyone did suffer any damage and needs some help or some pasture space while you make repairs we can try to help – just reach out.

I am opening the market for our summer hours this week! So May 14th and May 17th mark our official switch over! How is it that time already?!!! We are sticking with our Tuesdays and Fridays open at the farm, as well as taking orders for Saturday pick up at the farmers market. Like always I am going to try and be better about weekly email updates but you all know how that typically goes for us! So you can more than likely expect them once a month! You can order for Tuesday pick up now and will be able to order for next Friday pick up starting on Tuesday evening!

For this coming week we are having a flour sale. All bags will be $4 for next Tuesday and Friday only so if you have been waiting to try it now is the time. And speaking of flour almost all of our bread is now made with 100% of our homegrown heirloom red fife wheat. You may have noticed some of the loaves aren’t browning quite as nicely and that is because our flour clearly doesn’t have some additive that store bought flour has that lets them brown like that. I am still working on how to get that nice browning but don’t let that stop you enjoying. They are the same great flavor and even more local and nutritious than before. I’ve also added a whole wheat loaf and a seeded oat and wheat loaf to the bread options!

Also for a special treat next week we will be stopping in Sidney on Tuesday to pick up some delicious Kreppels from the amazing baker extraordinaire Jenn. Jenn grew up in Germany and is starting a German bakery (backstube) in Sidney/Piqua. Tuesdays are her Kreppel days, which are light and airy german doughnuts with a hint of lemon, which you can get plain or stuffed with jellies or puddings. I am definitely going to try her hazelnut cream filled one myself, and maybe the lemon, and johannisbeere…ok maybe one of each!!! You can check out all her flavor options at her website You will have to place your order with her sometime between Sunday evening at 7pm and Tuesday morning and I will pick up and deliver too the farm for you to pick up! I will email out again when her ordering window opens (or if you head to her website early you can sign up for a notification on your phone when it goes live so you don’t forget – isn’t technology crazy these days!) You will be paying her directly through her website when you order.

Jenn and I are thinking that we will do Kreppel Tuesdays once a month here so let’s plan on the second Tuesday of the month!

I am also hoping that throughout the season we will be able to have a few guests featured like this so let’s support another local baker…and satiate our sweet tooth at the same time!

And just a note on veggies for the week. We will have: Asparagus, lettuce, swiss chard, cilantro, spearmint, thyme, and maybe kale this week! Hope to see you all soon!
