Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market:  This Week at the Market


It is feeling like winter is on the horizon as we have had out first hard freeze. The green beans won’t make it, but the peas are still growing well. Lots of greens coming in, and the broccoli is starting to flower! We won’t have a ton of veggies through the winter, but should have enough greens to keep up. We have increased the protein level in the chicken feed so they have been laying a little better this past week.
We have some herbal loose leaf teas available now in the stand. They are so flavorful and perfect with Christine’s honey!
this week’s market is a regular market cycle and the “Holiday” items are still for preview only. After the market closes on Wednesday, I will reopen Thursday morning (11/18) for Thanksgiving preorders and pick up will be next Wednesday (11/24) after 10am. Another email will be sent out like this to remind you the holiday market is open.

Have a great week!

Champaign, OH:  Monday Morning


Monday morning, you sure look fine…
(Fleetwood Mac)

Good morning…what a beautiful, yet very cold, start to the week…

This is your Monday reminder that your weekly orders are due before 8am, tomorrow morning. And, also reminding you that the market will be on break, next week, with the Thanksgiving holiday.

Think about all that you need, and also think about some of your baked goods that you are ordering, and if you would rather do a special pick up, at the shop, next Tuesday or Wednesday, to ensure total freshness for your special holiday plans.

These weeks get busy, so don’t forget to take a bit of time out of your day to make life a bit easier with ordering from the market…

XOXO,
Cosmic Pam

PS…if you ordered from me, this week, and you can wait to do a Tuesday or Wednesday pick up, that would be great. If not, I will have your order ready at market pick up, Thursday.

I had another death if my family, and am unsure, at this time, when the arrangements will be…so, I am just trying to be proactive in my baking, while not making it a hardship on any of you lovely customers…

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of Nov 14


This is Ian writing this weeks blog.
On Thursday last week I was away visiting my mother and upon my return I found a note from Nick saying he had packed up and left, that Angela had closed her practice and they left the area. Not to try to contact him. He would have needed a truck and helpers to get it done by 4pm when the market opened. I had told him the day before I was going to be away all day Thursday.

Of course this was a shock. I did write to his email address that I am saddened by his departure and the manner in which he did it. Since then trying to piece this together, it is clear that he was planning to leave for some time; the greenhouse has not been weeded for months, outdoor beds are overgrown, no new crops are started for the winter season. During our biweekly check-in on Tuesday, he made no mention of unhappiness, and we discussed his revenue target for the next season. In fact relations have good enough that I have been quite comfortable leaving the farm in his hands. Now I have to conclude that I have been deceived.

I am putting the word out for candidates who would like to participate in the operation of Old 99 Farm, and/or live in the two bedroom loft apartment.

The silver lining may be that this pushes me towards changing the purpose and direction of the farm. There are many people who want to learn permaculture ways, to grow some of their food, and to build a community of interest in resilient lifestyles. Those of you who attended the Equinox event will remember my comments in this regard. If you are intrigued, pls contact me.

This week’s produce

We have celery, spinach, chard (perpetual green, rainbow), purple top white turnips, Detroit beets, collard greens, baby fennel bulbs, baby leeks, potatoes, carrots, rutabaga and golden turnips, new crop baby carrots, kale, and mixed greens. We have home processed pork lard and beef broth. The NY striploin steaks in the freezer are truly outstanding, even if I’m the one saying it! (We had family over for dinner on saturday and the steaks were a hit.) We have made 40 bottles of hard cider that you might like. Maybe I’ll slip one in the Winter CSA baskets soon.

I don’t think you will notice any difference in our offerings in the near term, but I do have to get that greenhouse planted for the spring season starting May 1st.

The first of segments of my talk from the Equinox Celebration is now ready for viewing at this LINK. The theme was My Journey So Far In The Climate Crisis. Part 1 is “I Feel A Call to Action”

Please surf over to www.old99farm.locallygrown.net to place your orders for meats, eggs, vegetables and prepared products. I did not attach the whole product listing this week.
Healthy eating,
Ian and Cami
