Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

Miami County Locally Grown:  Beauty Matters


Shop here

Tis flower season at Chez Nous Farm. All the late winter imaginings, preparation, and hours of work with seedlings is becoming tangible in the form of snapdragons, zinnia, ornamental grasses, and the like. Of course there were some setbacks, like deer destroying about 30 sunflower babies and a dismal germination rate of lavender seeds. But fortunately, I planted a great deal of extras and have installed 180’ of portable electric fence.

Who doesn’t enjoy flowers, and why is that? One of my favorite authors, Michael Pollan, has a great deal to say about the relationship between us and the world of colorful blossoms in The Botany of Desire. Fragrances and vivid colors are a way for these plants to “collaborate” with humans, insects, and birds to propagate their genes. And in support of conservation, by growing these and many other kinds of plants, we are adding to the great complex web of life on earth; global loss of biodiversity and habitat is leading to a great mass extinction. The great ecologist Aldo Leopold said that the first rule of tinkering is to not lose any of the pieces!

So do yourself and the earth a favor and plant some flowers. See the current market listing under perennials and annuals for Chez Nous farm offerings: marigold, echinacea (coneflower), rudbeckia (black eyed susans—two varieties). I really need to move the rudbeckia, because they’re outgrowing the pots! Incidentally, I wanted some sugar baby watermelons for myself, and ended up with way too many…Lastly, forty-some four-year-old red raspberry plants in 5 gallon pots were replaced with new stock, and can be had for $11 each.

Later in July cut flower bouquets will be available. Think about how you feel when someone sends you flowers. Their ephemeral but singular beauty is a small window through which one is transported to a world of the purest beauty. That in itself, no matter how humble, is a much-needed reprieve from so many sad and cruel things that daily impinge on our souls.

Martin's Farmstand:  U-pick strawberries and raspberries


We will be opening the berry patches for u-pick tomorrow afternoon (June 29) starting at 2 pm. The strawberries are relatively small as is normal late in the season but there are a lot out there. I think some of the very best flavored strawberries are the little late berries. Starting on Thursday (June 30) the strawberry patches will be put to half price gleaning status. With gleaning status the patch is open everyday (not Sunday) during normal stand hours which are 10 am to 6 pm. Gleaning status will last about a week till there is no green strawberries left to ripen any more. The first picking of red raspberries are ready to pick tomorrow. They will be available starting at 2 pm on a first come basis. U-pick raspberries will be by appointment after that. The black raspberries should be ready starting in 7-10 days. In the stand the selection of summer vegetables is growing. There’s lots of cabbage, tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce now. We have more garlic scapes than we know what to do with. The crew picked about 20 bushels of them this morning from our patch. Daniel
