Good afternoon!

Drewry Farm and Orchard brought some beautiful Gala apples to market on Friday. Kenny will be picking more this week, so put a bag of apples in your shopping cart and enjoy! Unfortunately, peach harvest may be ending. Things looked very promising early on, but an invasive insect, plum corculio, has caused extensive peach losses. I know Kenny and his team put in a lot of work in the orchards year-round, so our heartfelt thanks go out to them.

At this time of year, many of our vegetable growers have little produce being harvested as we wait for the fall crops to begin maturing. We will soon have a good variety of late summer vegetables: potatoes, cucumbers, cantaloupe, okra, fall squash, tomatoes…

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. We have over 625 items available now!

Most items are listed by 6pm Sunday, but check back again before the market closes Tuesday night to see if any other items are ready to be harvested for you! Eat fresh! Eat local! Eat for better health!

And save your eggshells throughout the week for the laying hens! :-)

Good morning!

Here’s a great dinner idea for this evening. Pick up a pound of Maria’s delicious barbecue pulled pork at market this afternoon, and serve barbecue sandwiches with tater tots and pickles for supper tonight. It’s been a long week, and you deserve it. Our new baker, Wendy, will be sharing samples so you can pick up dessert also. Come early for the best selection.

This is a pickup reminder for those of you who ordered this week. Thank you for your order! You can pick up your order from 3:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. today at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church at 925 Mitchell Street in Conway.

If something comes up that you cannot personally pick up your order today, please contact someone to pick up for you.

Remember to bring your EGGSHELLS, glass jars for recycling, egg cartons, and bags for ordered items. Reduce, reuse, recycle! See you this afternoon.

Come early for the best selection from the EXTRAS table! Even if you didn’t make an order, you can come by to shop the EXTRAS table.

Opening Bell: Chicken, Pork, Potatoes, Peppers!


Good afternoon!
If I had to title this post, it might be: the frailty of the farm. Let me explain: one of our growers lost six hens to a varmint on Friday, probably a raccoon. Those birds produced three dozen eggs per week. It will take 6 months or more to replace these egg-layers by ordering new chicks. Sometimes it seems the cards are stacked against chicken farmers. I have found that every critter in the woods wants to eat a chicken so we have to be on high alert all the time they are foraging. Saturday afternoon, my dog, Jackie, was bit by a snake. I didn’t see the snake, but I’m pretty sure it was a hognose snake since I had seen one in the area previously. We called a vet and did some online research for treatment, and I’m happy to report that as of right now, Jackie is doing fine. Slow, but alert and walking, eating, and drinking. I am sure she will be back to guarding her chickens in a few days.

If you are reading this, congratulations! You made it through the excessive heat and can now enjoy pleasant temps this week. Tending to animals and gardens when it’s very hot takes planning and determination. Thanks to our Growers for facing the challenge and keeping production up for us.

Are you planning to watch the 2 debates coming up on July 30 and July 31? If so, how about making some party foods to enjoy, like jalapeno popppers! This year our jalapenos have great jalapeno flavor, and a nice amount of heat. Stuff with cream cheese and wrap with bacon, or stuff with sausage and cheddar cheese. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
