This week on The Cumming Harvest


This Week

Market opens at 10AM

Wohoo! More and more veggies are back on the market this week. Order your fill of arugula, beets, broccoli, carrots, collards, kale, leeks, spinach, and more! Let’s give a big thanks to our tireless farmers who continue to grow amazing food for us all year long!

There are just a few blocks of Meadow Valley Farm cheese left; make sure to order one before they’re all gone.

Speaking of getting one before they’re gone (again), Good Shepherd Herbals has replenished the shelves with Elderberry Syrup.

After a few weeks off of the market, Royal Rose Bakery is back with delicious quiches and pot pies. Enjoy homemade food without having to make it yourself!

Ancient Awakenings is listing our favorite probiotic foods— Coconut Kefir, Water Kefir, cultured veggies, and Kombucha.

The White Oak Pastures order has been placed and will be ready for pick up on March 3. Don’t worry if you missed the deadline this time; we will be ordering from them monthly. Just let Jennifer know what chicken, pork and sausage products you would like before March 19.

Have you ever thought about volunteering with The Cumming Harvest? Contact Jennifer at thecummingharvest@gmail.com for more details. We are looking for a few special people who can help us out!

This has been a rough winter! Keep sickness at bay with Southern Essential’s Anti-Bacterial Essential Oil Blend. This blend of highly effective essential oils helps to reduce and kill bacteria and germs that can cause sickness. Try a few drops in your cleaning water, washer or dishwasher to boost the cleaning power and eliminate odors. Or use a few drops on your homes’ heating and air conditioning filter to help reduce airborne bacteria, or use in a room diffuser for a single room effect.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Meadow Valley Farm cheese is back on the market. Choose from Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar, Havarti, Baby Swiss, Pepper Jack, and more.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Make hamburger night easy with Indian Creek Angus’ hamburger patties. Each patty is 5.5 oz and makes a most delicious burger, especially when topped with Simply Southard’s Hot and Sweet Pickled Jalapenos. Or if you’re in the mood for something different, make lamb burgers with Bramberi Farms’ ground lamb, topped with arugula from Heirloom Gardens, and served with Cultured Traditions’ Garlic Dill pickles on the side. Either way, you can’t go wrong!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HomeSpun Baking Company is on vacation this week but will return soon with their gluten-free bakery goods.

This week on The Cumming Harvest


This Week

Market opens at 10AM

Beginning this month, we will be working with White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, GA to place a once-a-month pre-order for their pastured chicken, pork and sausage. 

White Oak Pastures has been owned and managed by the Harris family for five generations. Their chickens roam completely unconfined in pastures, foraging for bugs and grubs in the soil, and are also offered a non-GMO grain supplement. Their chickens are also a Step 5+ in the Global Animal Partnership, Certified Humane and Animal Welfare Approved.
Their hogs breed, gestate, farrow, and grow up in the woods. They are never kept in confinement. They eat what they find as they forage, plus peanuts that they are given, and the cracked eggs from pastured hens. They are supplemented with non-GMO feed. Their hogs are a Step 5 in the Global Animal Partnership and Certified Humane. They raise heritage breeds: Tamworth, Berkshire, and Gloucester Old Spots. 

WHITE OAK PASTURES PRODUCTS WILL NOT BE LISTED ON THE WEBSITE; THEY ARE ONLY AVAILABLE VIA PRE-ORDER.

1. TO ORDER, place a pre-order during the first two weeks of the month by emailing Jennifer at thecummingharvest@gmail.com or by filling out an order form at market on Saturday morning. 

2. Customer orders are due no later than February 19. White Oak Pastures will then fill the order and ship the following week.

3. You will be notified when your order is ready to be picked up at the Saturday market; since February is a short month, this month’s order will be ready for pick up on March 3. You will pay for your order at time of pick up, as usual. 

Email Jennifer with any questions or to receive the available items and price list.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Meadow Valley Cheese is back on the market. Cheeses available include Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar, Baby Swiss, Gouda, Pepper Jack, or Meadow (Monterey) Jack.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Need a dinner idea? Try pairing Doug’s Wild Alaskan Salmon fillet with Lillian’s Sweet Hawaiian Sauce and a side of sauteed baby bok choi from Leilani’s Garden or over a bed of wilted spinach from Heirloom Gardens. Delicious!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My Daily Bread’s Organic Vegan Spelt Bread Contains ONLY olive oil, sea salt, local honey, organic spelt and yeast. Spelt is a wonderful “nutty” and digestible grain that is usually well tolerated by those with gluten or wheat intolerance issues (but is NOT for persons that have been diagnosed as “celiac.”) This is a much denser loaf than their Ezekiel or Honey whole Wheat and is equally delicious.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ancient Awakenings is back this week with their cultured veggies, coconut kefir, and kombucha.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We are almost out of Good Shepherd Herbal’s Elderberry Syrup again, so grab a bottle before it’s all gone.

This Week

Market opens at 10AM

Please welcome our newest egg sellers, a husband/wife team, Alice and Jim Hackney of Rocky Top Farm. Their hens are fed non-GMO and soy-free feed and free-range on their property, found in south Forsyth.

Back in Time Farm is listing their pastured poultry this week. Although they are sold out of whole birds until May, they have a variety of sausages, as well as boneless, skinless breasts. Stock your freezers!

Do you like Naan? HomeSpun Baking Company has a new product on the market, gluten-free Naan bread. It is absolutely delicious warmed up! Eat it with your favorite hummus or Indian dish, or as an open-face flatbread sandwich.

Alta Cucina will be making the monthly delivery this week, so make sure to shop their balsamic vinegars reductions, infused and dipping extra virgin olive oils, tomato sauces, pestos and balsamic jams.

Cultured Traditions is back this week with their famous garlic dill pickles and other inventive krauts and ferments. Ginger tumeric kraut sounds like a perfect tonic for the gut.

Elderberry Syrup is back on the shelf! Good Shepherd Herbals has also restocked Beulah Balm.

Below is a message from My Daily Bread:
My Daily Bread wishes to share some exciting news with you… we are under new ownership! Our friends at Leilani’s Gardens have assumed ownership over the company and we couldn’t be more excited. Leilani’s farm and My Daily Bread share many of the same values and goals which include providing healthy, natural and organic products to our customers. When the original owners of My Daily Bread decided it was time to hang up their aprons, it seemed like a ‘natural’ fit to bring the bakery to the farm.
Don’t worry – we’ve kept all of our recipes, and even our baker, Bruce, so you’ll still receive the same quality baked goods that you have come to expect from us at My Daily Bread. Not only can you expect the same products, but we hope to bring some exciting new additions to the table using the fresh produce we’ll now have, literally, in our own back yard.
Our customers are very important to us, and we value your patronage. We are pleased to continue serving the community and people who have helped us grow into the bakery we are today, and we look forward to the new opportunities that lie ahead.

Thank you for your support!

This week on The Cumming Harvest


The market opens at 10AM.

Our egg supply is very low this time of year. Like most living things, a chicken’s egg-laying process is greatly affected by the amount of light it is exposed to, decreasing in the winter when there is less than 14 hours of sunlight in the day. If there’s not enough light and warmth to raise a baby chick, then there won’t be any eggs. This period of rest is important to maintaining a healthy flock.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ancient Awakenings has a new product on the market this week, Spicy Cultured Veggies. These have the same great benefits and recipe as their regular Cultured Veggies, but with added Organic Crushed Red Pepper Flakes. Rich in enzymes, vitamins and minerals, these “superfoods” contribute greatly to healing and building your inner ecosystem! Cultured veggies help to improve digestion, alleviate acid reflux and other digestive upsets, and control cravings for sweets. Spicy Cultured Veggies would be great on tacos.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Indian Creek Angus has several products on the market this week, including Chuck Roast, Brisket, and several variety packages that include steaks, cube steak, skirt steak, ground beef, short ribs, and boneless stew. One variety pack totals 15 pounds @ $7.50/lb, what a deal!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pet treats
Treat your dog this week — Southern Grass Meat is selling 4-6 lb packages of beef short ribs (broken seal) as pet food.
