Athens Locally Grown has closed.
Availability for February 15
It is a very light week this week, as the recent freezes are combining with the normal dip in productivity as the overwintered items run out before the spring items come in.
We do have some new items this week, including baby cabbage heads from McMullan Family Farms (our sole entry in the greens category for the week).
We also welcome a new grower to Locally Grown this week. Double B Farm is located in Oxford, Georgia (to the south-west of Athens), and started operations last season. Their spring veggies are still to young to harvest, but they are offering dried and powdered shitake mushrooms from their own cultured logs, honey from hives located throughout Madison county, and wax, candles, and soaps made from thier own beeswax. You can see a photo of their shitake logs in the “Our Growers” section of the website.
We’ve also got milk, buttermilk, and cream from Milky Way Dairy, soaps and candles from Songbird Designs, milled products from Mills Farm, and jams, jellies, and pickles from TaylOrganics.
Finally, I’d like to draw your attention to the “Weblog” portion of the website. Some entries, such as the weekly availability announcements and breaking Locally Grown new, get emailed out to all the accounts, but it’s also a space where I’ll post links to upcoming events, news stories, and other items you might find of interest. Those will appear on the website only, so take a look at the weblog when you’re visiting the site to place your order.
Thanks for all your support, and we’ll see you on Thursday from 4:30 to 7pm at Gosford Wine!
