January Events!

Hey you! How is 2020 treating you so far? For us this year has started out busier than ever as we harvest birds and prepare for our events this month. If you don’t already, tap on the link to follow our Facebook page. It really is the best way to stay up to date on everything we have to offer and where we will be.

Speaking of, this month you will find us at the Enterprise Farmers Market on Thursday January 23rd. We will be setting up from 9am-12pm. We grow year round so we will have many items to offer. We hope you will come to support us and invite you to pre-order through our shop page for whatever you’re in the market for. Just choose Enterprise after entering your zip code at checkout. That way you can say hello, then grab, and go.

On Saturday January 25th, you will find us at 2 The Olive Fruit located at 2323 West Main St., Suite 101 in Dothan beginning at 1:30pm. This event is all about healthy eating in the new year. There will be other vendors, items available for purchase, plus tastings too! You may also pre-order for this event and just add Olive Fruit in the comments and choose local pickup at checkout.

If January is any indication of how our year is going to go, then we have a lot to look forward to. We hope you will join us for the ride and hope to see you soon!

 

 

Fresh Produce Day!

I would like to personally invite you to come out this weekend and get to know your farmers a little better.

We will be at Rural King in Dothan from 1:30 pm 4:30 pm on Sunday December 29th and we would love to see you!

We enjoy meeting and learning more about our customers. So whether you shop or just stop in to say hello, that’s fine too!

Here are just a few things we’ll have:

Fresh eggs, COLLARDS, radishes, mustards, turnips, plus more!

I can’t say for sure that we will have chicken, but you can definitely reserve yours for our harvest that is coming up in a few short weeks. You can find them here. If we do have chicken, it always goes quick!

So many people have been waiting on collards so we expect them to go quickly. If you would like to reserve your order of collards or anything else ahead of time, please chose local pick up at checkout and type Rural King in the comments section.

We hope to see you there!

2019 Farmers Market Kick Off!

Are you ready?!? We sure are and we’re so excited to be coming to Enterprise on Tuesday April 16th! This is a brand new market for us this year and we hope to be able to come out on a regular basis. Of course we won’t be by ourselves. Bain Home Gardens will be joining us too!

The Spring season has just started so that means it’s egg season. Pick up a dozen or more along with fresh organic produce, jams, and a few bath and body products.

Our farm accepts all forms of payment including vouchers and EBT.  So don’t be a stranger. Shop, say hello, or just pick up a card for later. Hope to see you there bright and early at 7am.

Spring Starts!

This year, just like every year around this time our local stores stock up on Spring plants. You’ve seen them and they look so perfect! There was a time when we as home gardeners even purchased these plants! Yes, it’s true. We didn’t research. We just went with what everyone else was doing because we were interested in growing our own garden. Thankfully, we have educated ourselves on plants, seeds, and the importance of soil health. There is no way we would touch those plants now….even if they were free!

We have found that more and more people are educating themselves on how what they feed themselves and their families affects their health. If you’re one of those people then this article is for you.

Many of you ordered compost from us over the winter and now that Spring has nearly sprung it’s time to get those gardens going. But where do you start? Well for us, Spring planting starts in the Winter. Each year we learn more about the weather patterns here in Alabama, what to plant, and when to plant it. These things are so important!

The health of all plants begins in the soil. Can you honestly say that you know what type of soil is used in those plants that are mass produced? You may know the name, but what about the history? Is it really safe? So many news reports would say no.

Here’s what we do: Our plants are always started with an organic soil mixture. There are no chemicals in our soil. We always use true seeds. Those that are organic means that we’re saying no to GMO’s. In order to stock pile our seeds, we’ve had to purchase many, but having done this over the years, we are proud to say that quite a few of our plants are growing from seeds we’ve saved.

If this matters to you. You have options! Last year we purchased some of our plants from Gaucho Farms and those plants were beautiful. In fact, we even saved some of those seeds too!

So this year, we along with our sister Farm, Bain Home Gardens decided to not only start some for us, but for YOU TOO!

As of today we have a variety of tomato plants, herbs, peas, and a few perennials, but be sure that we will be offering even more as the season goes on. Grab one, grab two! Grow your own garden and enjoy the satisfaction of eating something you grew for your family! It’s so worth it!
