August Update for Dawson Harvest


Dawson Harvest for August 2018

August Update for Dawson Harvest

HI EVERYBODY

Quick Summer Update for the Dawson Local Harvest. First of all, there is going to be a hiatus of 3 or so weeks on all Vegetables except for Tomatoes. We should have enough Tomatoes for all our Harvest customers (we think), but it will be towards the back half of August before Squash, Zucchini, Cucumbers and more are available again. The good news is, once they restart, they should last most of the Fall.

Newer Customers to The Harvest may wonder about the Raw Milk for Pet Consumption. Raw Milk is un-pasteurized Milk which has not undergone the pasteurized process whereby it is heated enough to kill potential harmful bacteria. Once thoroughly heated it is considered safe for human consumption. The problem is that heating changes the basic taste profile of the Milk, and many “connoisseurs” in France and other places prefer the “natural” taste. There are states in this country that will allow for human consumption, but Georgia is not one of them. However, Pet Consumption is perfectly legal. I suppose that means if you are someone’s pet you can drink it. Anyway, now you know.

CULTURAL TRADITIONS always has some of the most interesting taste treats around. These are usually products that are fermented and / or high in probiotics. They are also a wonderful and delicious way to add some great (and healthy) variety to your diet. There is a lot to look at here, but this week I want to draw your attention to their Happy Cucumbers veggie mix. It’s a zesty and colorful mix of Cucumbers, Carrots, Radishes, Onions, and Garlic with the distinctive seasonings of eastern Europe. Ingredients are mostly organic, and it’s fermented so it’s not only tasty, it’s good for the digestion. Look for it in the Fermented Probiotic section of The Harvest.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

'Bodacious' Salsa is Here!


Dawson Local Harvest for July 27th

‘Bodacious’ Salsa is Here!

HI EVERYBODY!

You had to figure, with all of our organic-standard Tomatoes, Onions, and Garlic on hand it wouldn’t be long before we started working on our own Salsa. After several attempts, taste tests and refinements we finally have a salsa we can be proud of. So, (drumroll please), introducing Mr. Leilani’s ‘Bodacious’ Restaurant-style Salsa! What makes it Bodacious? Well, start with lots of healthy all-natural ingredients, blend in a very carefully-selected combination of fresh herbs and spices, then blend to the perfect texture for chip-dipping, taco-embellishing, quesadilla-quenching . . . well, you get the idea. Mr. Leilani’s "Bodacious’ Restaurant-style Salsa is available in the Salads, Cheese Dips, and More section.

Quick Reminder: In addition to their super-tender pasture-fed Beef, COPPERHEAD HOMESTEAD has large (30 lb.) red meat Watermelons on hand. Mmmmm, Hamburgers (Ground Beef) and Watermelons, sounds just right for a Cook-out! Hey, maybe do a little BBQ with Chicken from BACK IN TIME FARM while you’re at it! Plus fresh Tomatoes and Onions plus Yeast Rolls from MY DAILY BREAD, just about got everything covered!

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

A Berry Merry July!


Dawson Local Harvest for July 20th

A Berry Merry July!

HI EVERYONE!

July is Berry Time, and The Market has them, with all-natural fresh-picked Blueberries and Blackberries from the Parking Lot Patches at LEILANI’S! You’ll see half-pint containers of both Berries on The Market this week. Don’t wait on these, as they’ll only be around 3-4 weeks. BTW The Market has kitchen essentials Garlic and Onions, White and Purple available now. And of course we’re loaded with Tomatoes, both “regular” and heirloom.

Want to make something different this week? Here’s an idea. Ground Lamb from BRAMBERI FARMS is perfect for Irish Shepherd’s Pie! It’s easy! Start with Ground Lamb, brown with onions, and make a gravy. Add 4-8 oz. of corn and green peas, mix all that together (you want enough gravy to cover the veggies). Put this mix in a baking bowl, layer mashed potatoes on top, and bake at 375 until gravy bubbles through. Ground Lamb is also essential for Greek dishes like Mousakai and Pastitsio, and you can use it as a different taste on Pizza. In the Meat, Pasture-fed section.

Make Smoothies delicious with Coconut Kefir from CULTURED TRADITIONS. It’s $9.00 for a full 16 oz. pint, or just over $1 per 2 oz. serving. 2 oz. is a perfect addition to flavor and “smooth out” disparate flavors for tasty healthy Smoothies. Unflavored or with light Maple Syrup, and did we mention loaded with probiotics? Great with granola too! In the Fermented / Probiotic section.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.
