This past week, Feeding the Gulf Coast went out to Ricki Durden's Farm to help him pick over 250 pounds of kale which is being donated to feed local families in our area. I am proud to say Ricki grows exclusively for Flora Bama Farms. He farms using only organic practices. He takes so much care, you can see the love in every case. Ricki is experiencing a bumper crop of kale and he really needed help picking it. We are happy we were able to connect the two so they could help each other out and benefit local families.
Sawyer Farms just brought our first load of local peaches out of Slocomb, Alabama. They were just picked Thursday morning and are here in the market for sale today, Friday. The quality is excellent. The first ones are small but the flavor is there. They will gradually get bigger each week. If you have been waiting for a good tasting peach we have them here. Chilton County Peaches are a couple more weeks away.
Mrs. Janice Sawyer is also providing us with some of our strawberries, English peas and spring onions. We should be getting our cucumbers, squash and zucchini from her in another week. She did bring us some squash blossoms for some of our local chefs who like to stuff, they batter and deep fry them.
We also finally received Vidalia Onions out of Georgia. They are later coming in this year but the quality is very good and we hope to have them though the summer.
We are now carrying Mrs. Millers Jellies and Jams out of Ohio. This is a family owned company with some hard to find flavors such as quince, elderberry, and gooseberry. We don't have this product featured on our website yet but I wanted to let you know about our new arrivals.
We sold out of our first delivery of The Hummus Lady line and we are getting great reviews. We hope you will come by and check her product out. We will be featuring it in the market this weekend.
Please check out this weeks selection and you will notice our variety is getting wider. Lot's of farm fresh items arriving.
Thank you for looking.
