Foothills Market:  The Market is Open!

Weather forecasts for this week are calling for some chances of snow – is anyone else tired of winter? Fortunately, Foothills Market has a little taste of spring available, in the form of Spring Salad Mix from the aquaponics house at Happy Horseshoe Farm. It’s bright green, very tender and sweet (for lettuce).

Browse the market for lettuce, as well as our offerings of beef, baked goods, honey, and a few other vegetables. Order by 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, and we’ll have your order ready for pickup Thursday afternoon.

Eat something fresh this week!

What comes to mind when you hear the word “farming”? I think of my grandparents’ farms. They were both small family farms using traditional planting and harvesting methods to grow their fruits and vegetables. Beyond Papaw’s tractors and hay baling machinery, the most sophisticated tools my folks used were tillers. Nearly all of the work was done by hand, even milking the cows.

Today, I am sharing links to two articles that discuss innovations in farming. The first article focuses on a Virginia-based company which has worked with a cruise ship company to install a vertical farm on one of its ships. This farm produces microgreens, lettuces, and herbs to supply the ship’s restaurant. Here is the link to that fascinating story:

I am also sharing a post regarding the concept of controlled environment agriculture. The use of CEA methods has increased the variety of crops that can be grown in Georgia. Here is that link:

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. We’ll see you at the Market.



P.S. I can’t figure out how to make the links listed above as “hyperlinks” so that you could just click on them and your browser would take you straight to the information. You’ll need to copy and paste the https:// address into your browser’s search feature to access these articles. Anyway, I trust that you’ll find these articles interesting and inspirational.
