In the meantime, please enjoy these farmer quotes:

Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven’t planted. (David Bly)

If a farmer teaches one person about farming, it might not change the world; but it might change the world for that one person. (Farmer Tim)

In winter’s chill or summer’s heat, a farmer works so the world can eat. (unknown)

Thank you, farmers! And thank you to all our loyal customers. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Grower Spotlight and Holiday Gift Special from Connie's Cornucopia


This week, we hear from Connie. Be sure to check out her extensive product lineup, and shop her bath products for Holiday Packaging gift sets and special offers!

*At Connie’s Cornucopia, we believe you should let whole food be the prescription; or your prescriptions will be your food. Connie grew up in rural Ohio in the 1970’s on a self-sustaining 17-acre farm with 6 brothers and 2 sisters. Connie’s family raised livestock for meat and vegetables to not only eat but to preserve through canning and freezing so there would be enough over the winter. Connie wants to promote healthy living products, providing customers with year-around, all-natural fruits and vegetables through a Beyond-Organic Urban Farm based in Forsyth County GA since 2016.

*The natural-ingredient, Bath and Face Product Line will now have Holiday Packaging gift sets available just in time for Christmas.

Now for the TRICK:

Bug-Infused Ice Cube Trick

*Freeze gummy worms or bug-shape candy into classic ice cube trays for a funny prank and spooky-sweet drink surprise. Place one candy in each cube, then fill the ice cube tray with water as usual. Once the water freezes, pop out the ice cubes and add them to any drink. Our favorite? Halloween-theme punch.
*Editor’s Tip: Don’t worry if the candy spills over the tray edge. It just adds to the scary effect of this Halloween prank.

Our address is: 3540 Keith Bridge Road, Cumming 30041 (behind Hollywood Feed). Please be sure to come to the new address this weekend.

Wellness Wednesday / Grower Spotlight


Have you tried Elderberry Syrup yet? Let’s talk about the health benefits and how to get some!

• Elderberries are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The health benefits associated with taking elderberry are known to boost the immune system. Elderberry syrup has been used as an effective natural remedy for centuries for treating and preventing colds, coughs and flu. Research shows the use of elderberry could shorten the duration of flu by about three to four days, along with lessening symptom severity if taken within the first 24 hours of having the flu.

Check out one of our growers who offers it and just replenished their inventory with us:

Good Shepherd Herbals

• Father’s Bounty Homestead is the home of Good Shepherd Herbals located in middle Tennessee. Our Elderberry Syrup, herbal salves, and goat’s milk soaps are made with care on our family farm. These are natural care alternatives to the commercial chemical laden products found in most stores.
• We use chemical free milk from our Saanen does to make our soaps. They are cold pressed and hand cut. All of our goat’s milk soaps are gentle and emollient; safe for infants, the elderly, and those with skin issues.
• Our various herbal salves are made in small batches. The herbal infusion process takes 14 days. Special attention is given to consistent temperatures and purity.

Our address is: 3540 Keith Bridge Road, Cumming 30041 (behind Hollywood Feed). Please be sure to come to the new address this weekend.
