BROWN’S HOLLAR ANNOUNCES SQUASH & CUCUMBER SPECIALS

SEVEN PINES GROWER STARTS NEW BLOG
Leslie Lytle, owner of Seven Pines, has begun a new blog called Food Justice. She states, "…for nearly all my adult life, I’ve raised most of what I eat. I’ve witnessed firsthand the evolution of no-till farming with chemical weed control and organic farming, parallel developments on a timeline but with methods and goals racing in opposite directions. It seems like I’m always talking about growing things, the complex mechanics of getting food from the farm to the table, and why so many Americans are malnourished.

“It occurred to me CFM members, customers and growers might be interested. My first full post is titled: ‘Why are people starving and malnourished in the United States when over 300 million acres of crops were harvested last year?’ An excerpt follows.

“U.S. farmers harvested crops from more than 307 million acres last year. Add to that, another 62 million acres of pasture land. There are 318 million people living here. I grow most of what I eat on a quarter acre with ample left over to sell at local farmers’ markets most years. With 307 million acres of cropland in the U.S., farmers should be growing more than enough to feed all of us. That amounts to nearly an acre of land for each man, woman, and child in the country. But 49 million Americans are food insecure, nearly one third of them children.”

Tomorrow's Market...


The board meeting was postponed from last week to this week, so customer pickup will not begin until 4:30 tomorrow. Because of the size of the market, although we are open till 6:15 it would be very helpful to us if you could plan to be there by 6:00 for pickup. We realize this isn’t always possible, but we have a lot going on at the end of market and would greatly appreciate your efforts!

Remember to bring bags for yourself if you have them; we do have some bags available if you don’t have enough for your items. But occasionally we do run out.

Thanks!
Kir and Linda

Market Tomorrow (Tuesday)


Tomorrow’s market is quite large. Please allow the growers to check in before coming to get your order. The pickup times for orders is 4:30 to 6:15. If you are not there by 6:15, your order will be placed in the kitchen and subject to the left-behind fee.

If you cannot pick up your order by 6:15, please contact us by noon (unless, of course, there is a last-minute emergency).

Payments for all left-behind orders need to be received and posted before the next market’s opening on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. Envelopes are on the side of the fridge in the community center. If we have temporarily run out of envelopes, you may make your check out to CFM and mail it to Kir Strobel, 744 Timberwood Trace, Monteagle, TN 37356. Because all the mail goes to Chattanooga before being delivered up here, make sure you mail your payment no later than the day after market.
