Shopping Bag

Back to School

Posted by Barbara Williams on 8/11/2018 to Backfourty
It is back to school time.  We have a new display of back to school snacks featuring Joe's Chips an amazing treat.  Sweet Potato, Classic, BBQ, Salt and Vinegar, these  are the varieties of chips we currently stock.    You really need to taste these chips to appreciate how good they are.  Owned and operated by  Steve and Ann Prato.  It is a great discovery which is modestly priced.  We hope you will give them a try.  

Do you have a child going back to school?  Stop by our store for lunch box apples, oranges, clementines, and grapes.  Tell us your school name and mascot and we will take 10% off your purchase for the month of August 2018.  

Just in this week muscadines and scuppernong grapes.  We still have plenty of yellow meat watermelons, and local red watermelons.  Okra, eggplant,  bell pepper,  sweet mini peppers, yellow squash, butter beans, pink eyes, Sand Mountain Tomatoes, and Chilton County Peaches  are still available.   

Green Peanuts will be coming in from Fidler Farms within next 10 days.  We won't have them this weekend but we are looking to have them the following weekend of the 18th.    Mr. Fidler grows jumbo peanuts.  We make our peanuts year round from Fidler Farm's cured jumbo peanuts.  They take a long time to cook., up to 12 hours.  The green peanuts, which just come right out of the grown cook in a fraction of the time.  We will have it on our sign as soon as they make it to our door.

We hope you all have great week. We look forward to seeing you at the farm.

Good Morning,

Just in... we received another beautiful load of local cabbage from Steve's Farm.  
The cold weather from 10 days ago is still affecting local collards, chard, kale, carrots, and broccoli.  It knocked them down for now but no reports of crop loss.  They will come back with this warm weather we are experiencing,  hoping for late next week.   We do have a descent supply of Rickey Durden's green kale but,  I am sorry to say we are out of the red kale right now. 
Be aware asparagus is hard to get right now and the market is climbing.  You may want to switch up vegetable if possible.  Green bean from south Florida have been nice and price is good.  We have whole as well as cleaned and trimmed in stock. 
Also be aware that freight rates are up some coming from west so you will notice some increases due to increased freight rates. 
Onions, many of the sheds in Idaho got badly damaged.  The roofs literally fell in due to heavy snow.  Onions have been a little harder to get and market pricing is up some.   Nothing extreme just a couple bucks. 

I hope you all have a great week.  We appreciate you.
