Opening Bell: Custom Made Signs Available


Good afternoon,

Check out this exciting opportunity to have a very nice wooden sign custom made for you or a friend. Just type in “custom” in the search field and the item will show up. Email me with any questions.

Want bread? Please check out the fresh baked White and Honey-Oatmeal Wheat bread listed under BAKED GOODS. More varieties coming soon!

This is wonderful weather to be having in January, and it means the veggies are growing nicely. Thanks to all our growers who weathered the extreme cold earlier in the month. The work they did to protect their crops is paying off now.

The market is now OPEN for orders. Please check your email about 5 minutes after you place your order to make sure you get an order confirmation. Thank you for being a valuable part of CLG!

Have a great week!
Steve

Opening Bell: Over 500 products available this week.


Good afternoon,
Last week I told you about the wonderful Vegetable Medley Farm Basket from Barnhill Orchards, but it couldn’t be found on the site. The reason is that due to the extreme cold, they weren’t sure how the greens would fare so they temporarily removed the item. After seeing the forecast, they tightly covered their crops for protection (not an easy or quick task). GOOD NEWS! There are 5 boxes available this week so check it out under HARVEST SPECIALS in the Vegetable category. You won’t be disappointed.

Here’s a special offer on Muscadine Juice from Jerry at Bluebird Hill Berry Farm:

The Muscadine grape is a species of native North American vine first discovered by European explorers of the Southeastern United States. The earliest named variety was “Scuppernong”, discovered in 1554. The varieties used by Bluebird Hill Berry Farm have been developed by Isons Nursery. These varieties produce a sweeter fruit. The juice produced from these grapes contains all the health benefits attributed to the muscadine grape. This product is not mixed with other juices nor is it highly filtered.

A supply of this juice will be available as “Extras” during the market this Friday at a reduced introductory price. An open bottle will also be available for sampling.

The market is now OPEN for orders. Please check your email about 5 minutes after you place your order to make sure you get an order confirmation. Thank you for being a valuable part of CLG!

Have a great week!
Steve

Opening Bell: Lots of Local Goodies!


It’s cold outside, so just sit in the warmth of your home and place your order for some delicious locally produced food. I’ve got to brag just a bit on one item our family enjoys almost every week: the Vegetable Medley Farm Basket from Barnhill Orchards. The box on Friday contained 9 different vegetables, enough for all week. If ordered individually, the items would cost $30, but the box costs only $25. The items change, so check it out under HARVEST SPECIALS in the Vegetable category. You won’t be disappointed.

The market is now OPEN for orders. Please check your email about 5 minutes after you place your order to make sure you get an order confirmation. Thank you for being a valuable part of CLG!

Have a great week!
Steve

Opening Bell: Happy New Year!!!


Happy New Year to all,
I’m sure many folks are traveling or hosting family during the holiday period, and enjoying some much-needed time off work. Winter is a slower time for many growers, but there is always work to be done and animals to be fed. Even though it’s cold outside, this is garden planning time: a time to think about what we will plant in the spring, what worked well last year, what didn’t, and maybe to order seeds of a new or unusual variety. It’s an exciting time of the year when we can dream a little and hope for our best harvest ever!

The market is now OPEN for orders. Please check your email about 5 minutes after you place your order to make sure you get an order confirmation. Thank you for being a valuable part of CLG!

Happy New Year!
Steve
