Opening Bell: Goat Cheeses, Micro-Greens, Salad Mix, Broccoli!


Good afternoon (from Carissa)!
Hopefully everyone is having a good beginning to 2018. The New Year came in with a cold front and made farming so much more difficult on farmers, their crops and their livestock. As I look out the window at the gloomy, cold day, I long for Spring! There is a bright side though! Because of the milder winters we have had the past few years, insects have continued to be a problem for gardens. Hopefully with the really cold temps that we have had this past week, we will see a decrease in damaging insects in spring and summer! Natural pest control at its best! :) There are so many benefits to cold weather! Check back next week for another.

No lettuce from Rattle’s Garden this week. The cold weather stifled its growth last week and should recover next week.

Chickens are extremely fickle, but are far more intelligent than people give them credit for. And, they are such wonderful garden helpers!!! Egg laying in the winter is one area that chickens are very fickle. VERY cold weather will slow down laying because more of the chickens’ bodily resources have to go into keeping her warm rather than to producing eggs. Another reason for slow laying, even if the winter weather is warm, is daylight. If there is not enough light, some breeds may slow down laying in the wintertime. One thing’s for sure, they are doing their best!!! :)
Rutabagas coming soon!

We have the best Growers in Central Arkansas! Please learn more about them on Our Growers page.

The farmers and market managers appreciate your efforts to help spread the word about Conway Locally Grown. We would love to offer your friends a great local resource for fresh, local farm products too! Please pick up a few flyers at the next market to hand out to your friends, neighbors, and co-workers.
Thanks!

Good afternoon!

Happy New Year’s Eve! Good news! We are having market this week. After the busy holiday season, it’s good to look forward to some sense of normalcy in our daily lives. This week you won’t have to ask yourself, “Where’s the Beef?” Does anyone remember the Clara Peller commercials for Wendy’s in the mid 80’s? Ratchford Farms and Grass Roots Co-op have all their items listed again.

Cadron Valley Acres has listed MICROGREENS! Get some for salads or sandwiches.

Mark your calendars: We will not have a market on Friday, January 26th.

Opening Bell: Goat Cheeses, Honey, Spinach, Microgreens!


Good afternoon!

Merry Christmas Eve! Yes, we are having market this week. It’s a busy time with families getting together or traveling, but our Growers are still harvesting some amazing produce. Cadron Valley Acres has listed MICROGREENS! Get some for salads or sandwiches.

On average, we have to close the market once per winter due to dangerous travel conditions on market day. We try to make the decision before the market opens on Sunday, but occasionally winter weather creeps in unexpectedly later in the week. This week we may get a little something Thursday morning, but it isn’t expected to impact roads on Friday. We all love our local food, but we value our Members and Growers even more, so safety is the determining factor.

Despite the colder temperatures forecasts for this week, it’s still the perfect time to add some Elephant Garlic PLANTS to your garden. They survive cold winter temps and will continue growing in the spring. Limited quantity available.

Mabel, from Everette Brown Farm, told me she expects to begin harvesting Rutabagas in a couple of weeks. How exciting is that! In my humble opinion, Rutabagas are much under-appreciated. Try them again, or for the first time.

I will have some exciting news about a new Grower soon. Stay tuned!

Many varieties of Goat Cheese available now! Check out the NEW Goat Cheddar!
