BEEF & CHICKEN Back on The Market!


Dawson Local Harvest for Nov. 16th

BEEF & CHICKEN Back on The Market!

HI EVERYBODY!

JUST IN TIME For Thanksgiving and the Holidays, too! BACK IN TIME FARM has their superb Certified Naturally Grown pastured Chicken available for sale now. Chickens are grass-fed, supplemental feed is organic, and no antibiotics are used for the purest, most-natural Chicken you can get! Chicken Breasts, Breakfast Sausage, Livers, and Feet (essential for great broth) are some of what is on the Menu.

And How About Steaks this weekend or a nice pot roast? COPPERHEAD HOMESTEAD has also returned to The Market this week with these and more natural pasture-fed Beef including Ground Beef, Brisket, Short Ribs, and T-bones, as well as several combination Packages for the busy family. You’ll find all the Chicken and Beef listed in the Meats, free-range pastured section.

NEW VEGETABLES THIS WEEK: We see a couple of new Vegetables for this week’s Market. First up, Turnip Greens, stir-fried with garlic and oil (healthy version), or slow-cooked for hours with a smoked turkey leg a la Paula Deen (the way I like ’em). Next, Pak Choi, the wonderful Asian veggie perfect for stir-fry Chicken & Beef, leaves and stalks in soups, and leaves added to salads for a sweet & crunchy texture. Also, Purple-Top Turnips can be boiled with the greens, or the bulbs sliced for a touch of crunch and spice in a salad. Look in Vegetables for availabilities this week.

THANKSGIVING PRE-MARKET: The Dawson Local Harvest will have a Thanksgiving Pre-Market on Tuesday, Nov. 20th, 2 days before Thanksgiving. This is a great time to order all the Breads, Desserts, Dips, and Vegetables you’ll want for the Holidays. Ordering will start as usual Sunday night, Nov. 18th at 8pm, but will close a day earlier on Monday night, 11 pm, with orders available for pickup Tuesday the 20th 3-6 pm.

PLEASE NOTE: Because of scheduling difficulties, PLEASE ORDER ALL BEEF & CHICKEN FOR THE HOLIDAYS in THIS WEEK’S MARKET for pickup THIS FRIDAY. Sorry, that’s the only way it will be possible.

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.

Dawson Harvest: Still Time to Order!


Dawson Harvest for November 9th

Dawson Harvest: Still Time to Order!

HI EVERYBODY!

I absolutely love Squash, my favorite way to prepare it being sauteed with onions in bacon grease. I know, I know, those of you recoiling in horror at such sacrilege, but I was raised Southern, and I have to have bacon grease with everything including vanilla ice cream! Okay, maybe not that.

The point here is, locally-grown organically-raised summer Vegetables like Squash are about to disappear until next year! But You still Have Time to Order Squash, Zucchini, Green Beans and shelling Peas, plus delicious free-range Eggs, raw Milk, Caramel Apple Bread, fermented Okra, and lots more! The Market Closes Tonight at 9 pm!

Thanks, Alan, Market Manager

November News for Dawson Harvest


Dawson Harvest for November 9th

November News for Dawson Harvest

HI EVERYBODY!

Lots happening with The Market right now, starting with a nice mix of Vegetables from LEILANI’S GARDENS. Available this week: Green Beans, shelling Peas, Jalapenos, Yellow Squash, Zucchini, and a very tasty Radish mix. Plus, BACK IN TIME FARM has the very first Kale of the season, a tender and delicious Large Leaf!

Secondly, we have run into a snag concerning the sale of SAWNEE ACRES Fresh Turkeys. It turns out The Market, which is considered a Farmer’s Market, can only sell Frozen Turkeys. Fresh processed have to be purchased at the SAWNEE ACRES farm itself. We have made the Turkeys unavailable through our Market but you can still look them up in Our Growers and contact them directly if you want a fresh-processed Bird.

Finally so you can plan ahead, the Dawson Local Harvest will have a special Pre-Thanksgiving Market Pickup on Tuesday, November 20th from 3 to 6 pm. We will open The Market on Sunday night, Nov. 18th as usual, but will close The Market Monday night at 11pm. Pickup will be the next day, Tuesday the 20th so you can order all of the Vegetables, Breads, Desserts, Dips, and more you’ll want for your Thanksgiving. We’ll give you more details as we get closer.

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.

Let's Talk Turkey for November!


Dawson Local Harvest for November 2nd

Let’s Talk Turkey for November!

HI EVERYBODY!

Indeed, let’s talk Turkey for November, humanely raised farm-fresh pastured Turkeys from SAWNEE ACRES, a small family farm near Cumming. They raise Turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and are listing for the first time on the Dawson Local Harvest. Here’s how it works. You order the size Turkey you want, small, medium, or large, (10 to 25 lb.) and either pay for the whole Turkey in advance or pay a $25 deposit, with the balance due upon pickup. The cost is $5 a pound, actual price determined by weight on delivery. You can ask for specific sizes via email (like 10 lbs., 18 lbs., etc.) and we’ll try to match your request. DELIVERY will be during our Special Thanksgiving Market Day on Tuesday, Nov. 20th, 3 to 6 pm!

Always love to see what CULTURED TRADITIONS has cooking! Here’s a couple of new things. First up, Fermented Okra, made from fresh-picked Okra with their characteristically distinctive flavorings. Secondly, a new seasonal Jun flavor Pumpkin Spice they’ve developed, and one of their best-sellers, Garlic Dill Pickles, is also back in stock. These and other delectable are in the Fermented / Probiotic section

Finally, in Produce a couple of new additions join the Vegetable roster. Shelling Peas, which are so tasty when fresh-picked like this, plus a lovely new Radish Mix to spice things up.

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.

NEW THIS WEEK on The Harvest!


Dawson Local Harvest for October 12th

NEW THIS WEEK on The Harvest!

HI EVERYBODY!

I always like it when I have New Products to talk about for this week’s Market. Renee, the baker for MY DAILY BREAD, has developed new offerings that will be great for Football, Fall and Holiday get-togethers. For starters, how about Cheese Dip Bread Bowls, featuring our scrumptious Beer-Buzzed or Buffalo Blue Cheese Dips in a 6" Sourdouch Bread Bowl. Great for hosting parties, “bring-a-snack” gatherings, or Football night, and you Save a Dollar with the Combo! In Ethnic / Specialties. Also New are Sourdough Soup Bowls, ready for your favorite Hot Soup, Chili, warm Dips, and more. 2 Soup Bowls per Order, 2 orders gives you 4 for a tummy-warming dinner. And there’s more, a new delicious Challah braided white loaf, an excellent sub for French bread and a wonderful Holiday table bread. Find the Soup Bowls and Challah in the Loaf Breads listing.

Speaking of baking, if you like to bake try our Freshly-milled Organic Hard Red Wheat, 5 lbs. for $7.00, which is an excellent price. In the Flour, Grains, & Milled section along with Stone-ground Grits form BACK IN TIME.

The beautiful (and tasty) Eggs from BEAR RIDGE LODGE are back on The Market again, and in case you haven’t noticed, our Local Wildflower Honey is now available in an economy sized heavy quart (44 oz. $20.00) to go along with the heavy (22oz.) Pint and the Squeeze Bear. In Honey, naturally.

Eggplant, Purple Okra, several Pepper varieties, Heirloom Tomatoes and Cherry Tomatoes are still available on The Market, and several more choices like Zucchini and Squash will rejoin the Vegetable listings the next couple of weeks. And don’t forget about those delectable Oyster & Lion’s Mane Mushrooms! It may be Fall, but there’s still good eating in the neighborhood.

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.
