WELCOME USLG CUSTOMERS

THE MARKET IS OPEN FOR ORDERING!

Order today for pickup Tuesday from 4-6 PM at Swamp Rabbit Café and Grocery and Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at the whole Foods Market, Greenville,SC.

We are participating in Clemson’s Agricultural Services Farm Fresh Market, which takes place Wednesday afternoons through the month of April. MEET US THERE: Call Donna 864-353-6096 to be guided in by a student. Donna’s comment: "I an thrilled to be on campus at Clemson U and talk to the students there! They are so enthused with life! Many of the students that stopped by are very interested in Sustainable agriculture; in fact, two who stopped by have been to Putney Farm already this spring for a tour as part of a class they have. More to come from this, and we will keep you posted about where you can see this online.
While you are there at Cox Plaza, stop by the other booths to get a preview of what you may see at other farmers markets around Clemson when they open. The booth next to me was interesting. The lady makes all kinds of sewn and hand crafted items. There was goat milk, Jalepeno poppers, personal care items, and the cutest green Tshirts that say “Eat your Vegetables” on the back. Get one of these from the Farm Fresh Market booth for only $10.00. (If you can’t make it to the market, but want a tshirt, please let me know and I will get it for you.

OCCASIONAL CSA
What You Might See in Your CSA this Week: *Greens *are in transition from winter to spring, so, while there aren’t a vast array, they are still very fresh, tender, and delicious! So, greens like kale, green garlic or green onions, either beef or Chicken, eggs, fresh herbs like bee balm, Lemon Balm, and mint, flowers, and a chunk of cheese. It will exceed the value of only $25. Order and get the best of the spring offerings!
As always, we at USLG are pleased to offer you plenty of fresh, local proteins and produce, as well as eggs from Putney Farm, Happy Cow milk products, Swamp Rabbit baked goods, and much, much more.

Have your ordered greens from Spurgeon Farms lately? Not only are these fresh collards and kale tender and delicious, they are chopped and packaged in a gallon bag. That means all you have to do is rinse and cook. Better than the grocery store on every level! Click on vegetables for this and other great winter produce offerings.

Donna’s Corner

We at Upstate Locally Grown strive to find you the freshest, greenest, and most alive foods available anywhere! They are picked fresh for you at the very peak of their ripeness, cooled, and shuttled to you in our little white veggie-van, always in coolers to preserve the vibrancy, crispness, and nutrition. We are what we eat, and we produce live cells from living foods!

The milk that we bring to you is from the latest and freshest batch, the greens were in the field earlier that day, and the eggs are always freshly laid! What more can you ask, than for the grower to go out and pick/pull, gather, and harvest just for you, and send it quickly on to your kitchen?

Please tell your friends about us, and ask them to mention that you sent us. You will receive 10% off your order when your friend writes a note on their order that you sent them!

We appreciate Clemson Montessori School for allowing us to host our drop-off in their shady parking lot!

Folks, we have been on a hiatus for a few weeks, due to a change-over in market managers. We have been doing some re-adjusting, and are now back on our feet, and starting off on a run!
VOLUNTEERING:
Thank you, volunteers, for raising your hands to offer help! In the next couple of weeks, we will be contacting you for some brain-storming on ways you can help with the market operations. Besides the reward of helping a great cause, Upstate Locally Grown volunteers are rewarded with market veggies and eggs, too!

We gather the best of our offerings for the week and products that we know will give you a great addition to a few delicious meals. The variety is astounding; mainly because we select your CSA products from several growers. You should expect some protein and veggies; and the value will exceed the fee every time! And, if you have a preference, or there is something that you DON"T want, just jot a little note as you order your CSA, and we will try very hard to accommodate your specific tastes.
Here’s wishing you a great week, delicious healthy meals, and happy shopping!

Weblog Entry


Your market is open this week for drop-off on Tuesday Jan 22.
Since your Market Manager is feeling under the weather this week, Donna will pinch-hit this eveniong and share some blogging about our growers.
THE FRESHEST PRODUCE AVAILABLE ANYWHERE BUT YOUR OWN GARDEN *
You do not want to miss the most beautiful, most delicious, and freshest greens available to you anywhere. Spurgeon and Spurgeon are outdooing themselves to produce masterpieces of the winter garden; crispy, tender and mild Chards, spicy Arugula, healthy and sweet beets. You will not find a fresher veggie assortment anywhere, friends, because Mr. Spurgeon picks your greens just hours before they are dropped off to you, chills them, packs them individually to your order, and hands them off to us for their short ride to your kitchen!
*TRULY FREE-RANGED SELECT BEEF:

Also: take note that Nature’s Beef at Taylor Farm is preparing the next generation of beef for you by rotating them on his hundreds of acres of pasture paddocks. Mr. Taylor lovingly moves the herds around to green pasture, even if this means that he has to load the herd in his cattle hauler to keep them out of traffic while they are transported to the next paddock.
THE NEXT GENERATION:
I just love to see all the little new born calves in the front pasture this time of the year. Mr. Taylor keeps the moms and calves as close to the house as possible so he can check on them as they are being born and make sure Mom and baby are doing okay. If a mother is having any trouble at all, Mr. Taylor knows about it and is Johhnie-on-the-spot to come to the rescue.
KEEPING A HEALTHY CLOSED HERD *
To give you some background on this herd, from what I understand, this is a closed herd, meaning that no cattle come from the outside. This keeps out any possibility of bringing in any disease from other farms, and keeps his beautiful herd in top condition.
*CONTENTED COWS *
When I walk past the pastures on my hikes, The evidence of a well-cared-for herd is abundant. Shiny coated, well-built, very calm cows sometimes wander over to the fence because they are used to having people pay attention to them. I am in awe of the beauty of the herd, the vast, tree-lined green pastures, and the neatness of a well-cared-for farm, and I feel honored to have been transplanted to this area and to have become friends with such an awesome rancher as Richard Taylor.
*ATTENTION TO DETAIL *
As you order meat from him, you will soon become aware, as I am, of Mr. Taylor’s meticulous attention to detail and his keen desire to give excellent customer service. He may phone or email you to be sure he understands exactly what you want. I don’t know how many times he checks and double-checks, but your orders are always correct, and well-marked.
*WE ARE HONORED WITH FINE GROWERS

These two growers that I have mentioned, Alton and Dodi Spurgeon and Richard Taylor, are, in my opinion, some of the best growers in the Upstate, always reliable, and always producing the finest quality food available anywhere. I will also say that they are folks of fine character, and that I am honored to be given the opportunity to offer their products to you.
We have several fine growers; in fact, I believe the finest group of growers a person could wish, hope, or pray for. These folks choose to stay with us , and that makes me very happy. We are all very blessed to have this fine group of highly principaled farmers all in one place, Upstate Locally Grown. Please click on the link to order and we will drop-off to you on Tuesday or Wed, depending on your drop-off spot.
Donna

Local Turkey from Welch and Son


Hi, all. Just wanted to let everyone know that Welch and Son (Bill Welch brings you all that delicious pasture-raised chicken available on the market) has 4 pasture-raised Bourbon turkies available on the market. It is selling for 6.50/pound. I can tell you from experience that the Bourbon Red heritage breed of turkey is superior in flavor! It is nothing like the bland white turkey you are probably used to. This will be a treat for all in attendance at your Thanksgiving feast. You can pick up at the farm after the 13th or arrange for delivery to WF or Swamp Rabbit through myself.

The market will be open until Monday at 10am. Thanks for your continued support!
