One More Round


Here is to hoping this is our last round of cold weather for the year! While I sit and watch our yard get greener ever day, we are not out of any freeze dangers yet.

I see gardens all around getting ready for planting and the new growing season. I love this time of year, without the cold of course. It reminds me that all good things are renewed and love does live on. (Yes, it takes a love of the land and good foods to farm).

Do You Feel It?


Can you feel spring in the air? I sure can, and so can my hens. They have picked up production and are keeping me in plenty of eggs. The horses are enjoying the warmer days, and the grass is definitely getting greener. Seems like every day I see a little bit more of Spring when I look around.

I’m really looking forward to Opening day of the Physical Market on May 3rd, when we will have live entertainment, voting on a design contest by the youth of Greeneville / Greene County, and look forward to seeing you there!

Until then, remember to place your orders by Tuesday night, and I’ll see you Wednesday evening.

Sunshine, Warmth and Green Grass


I don’t know about you, but I am already noticing the grass turning greener. I just got back from a trip to FL, where I went an picked up my daughter who moved to the area. And in just a few short days, the grass has already turned greener, the mud is drying out, and I can honestly say I feel Spring in the air!

Remember to place your order this week, for Wednesday pickup.

A Wonderful Weekend


It has been an absolutely beautiful weekend. I think I hear the grass starting to grow and turn green!

With warmer weather hitting us, it’s time to start thinking about some BBQ dinners!Here is a quick and easy Honey BBQ sauce for your cookouts.

Late Opening for the week


I am so sorry guys, I am late opening the store for the week. It’s been one of those weekends where I just have not been able to function properly.

But, here we are! Looks like it is going to be a great week, and we will actually be able to meet this Wednesday for pick up! I am so looking forward to the warm up, and keeping my fingers crossed we have seen the worst of the winter.

Warmer Weather??


When are we going to get warmer, drier weather? I hate to sound like I am complaining, but enough is enough already! I know, I should be grateful for the break in the garden work. But I have to be honest, I miss being outside in the fresh air, working with the plants, and making sure I am doing everything I can to bring you fresh vegitables!

On a brighter side, I had planted some lettuce seeds back before our “Deep Freeze” and had them in the greenhouse. Of course, they froze! In an attempt to save the little seeds, I have moved them inside where they now soak up any and all sunlight and warmth in front of my windows. And, it worked! I have three varieties of lettuce sprouting!

Won’t it be nice to have fresh lettuce on the table? It won’t be much longer before I will be ready to harvest.

In the mean time, we still have fresh breads, bagels, grass fed beef, seafood, and apples to order! I can smell a nice hot Apple Pie cooking right now. Seriously, I’m making an apple pie today with apples I got from Buffalo Trails Orchard.

We are making a small change in pick up times. The new pick up time will run from 5 to 5:15 PM at the Roby Adult Center in Downtown Greeneville.

I hope you have a wonderful week, and I look forward to seeing you Wednesday!

Beautiful Weekend!


All I can say, is it was a beautiful two days! Just what the Doctor ordered after a week long freeze. I was so happy to see the warmer temps today, I actually FELT like getting out today. I’m hoping that just because it rains tomorrow, the temps will be up again, and I can get out to my greenhouse and do a little work.

In the meantime, check out our Oniine market and get your orders in my Tuesday night for Wednesday evening pick-up! I have to admit, Wednesday’s are one of my favorite days of the week when I get to see everybody and have a little conversation.

See Ya Wednesday!

Where is Spring??


I’m sure many of you are like me, and wanting to know when Spring will get here. The Answer, in a little less then 2 months! I, for one, am really looking forward to it.

I can’t wait to start working outside again. This frigid weather is no fun.

But, don’t worry, you can always warm your heart, and your home, cooking fresh foods from the Greeneville Farmers Market online store! From seafood, grass fed beef, fresh baked goods, and even some fresh apples.

Place your orders by Tuesday night for Wednesday pick up at the Roby Center between 5 and 5:30 PM. I look forward to meeting you!

Warmer Weather, Brighter Days


Looks like we are in for some brighter days and warmer weather in the next week. I for one am glad to see it after this last cold front that came through. I hope everyone fared well through the frigid temps, and are doing well.

GFM Online market is now open for ordering. Pick up will be Wednesday at the Roby Center on Wednesday 5 – 5:30 PM.
