Champaign, OH:  Going Down The Road Feelin' Bad


Going where the climate suits my clothes…
Going where the chilly winds don’t blow…
(Going Down The Road, Feeling Bad-Grateful Dead)

Yes…this song was on replay in my mind, today, all day. It’s frigid, it’s windy, it’s icy, it’s snowy…it’s tooooo much for this hippie baking market manager!!

I am finally home, finally warming up, finally pouring a glass of wine.

I love that any and all shopping can take place, right here, where I am warm and cozy, with a glass of wine, with tunes, and without any hassles. I shop, I click, I sit back, and know that even though these chilly winds keep blowing, I don’t have to be out fighting them to shop. I get local, I get nutrition, I get a whole lot for the money…it’s a local win!

So, my weekly shopping is done, and I can get back to dreaming about a tropical escape where the climate will certainly suit my clothes:)

Get your orders in…remember…it’s the week before Thanksgiving. We will not operate market hours, next week. Think, think, think…plan ahead and let us do the work!

Peace and Love,
Cosmic Pam

ALFN Local Food Club:  Last Call for a Great T-Day Haul!


This. Is. It. The very last chance to order all the fantastically tasty local ingredients you need to make The Best Thanksgiving Feast of All Time™. So triple check your menu, and make sure you have absolutely everything you need from The Market. Such as:

chicken for roasting, sweet potatoes to candy, fresh sage for dressing, eggs for deviling, kale for sauteeing, leeks for creaming, radishes for dipping, turnips for gratin, berries for cobbler, and pecans for pie.

With the help all the flavor packed goods The Natural State has to offer, this may finally be the year that your dinner is so stupendously scrumptious, there won’t be a leftover spoonful in sight.

Old99Farm Market:  Old 99 Farm, week of Nov 15 2014


We’re heading into the first cold snap of the winter this week, with steady -5 and lower, which indeed is below normal for this time of year. Small consolation!

Veggie greens are doing fine in the greenhouse and root crops and squashes are in storage. All good. Meat freezers are well stocked, my pigs are now 200lb and will be going to the butcher in early December. One is spoken for already, but I will make sides available.

The Permaculture Teacher Training course last week was an uplifting experience, hanging out with 20 students of all ages, 24 to 64. We were hosted in a 16 yr old co-housing community in Ann Arbor MI. All of us are inspired to do what we can to rectify, mitigate, restore the ecological damage being done to the earth, life support system for all of us. Permaculture is a philosophy, movement and design system for living well within the earth’s means, as tho we intended to stay. See www.permacultureactivist.org for lots of links and info.

Recently viewed some intriguing streaming video on food and health, 12 segments available on dvd for $20. They hit all the biggies, like gmo, soy, raw milk, cholesterol. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjJMMwej40E&feature=youtu.be for previews of each.

And there is this article my friend Nicole Foss reposted on FB: The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (it’s not the gluten)
www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com
To which my local organic small grains farmer friend (who supplies all the grain for my chickens and pigs), replied about wheat: “But we need to add to this the fact that nearly every acre in Ontario has 1 to 2 applications of a fungicide as well (mainly Folicur). One app before heading and one application after heading. Western Canada I am told sprays their wheat on average 6 times per crop. (Round-up pre-plant burnoff, several insecticide passes for grasshoppers, several fungicide passes and then as this article states desiccant.” Makes me really not want to eat wheat anything. At least I can buy organic flour or grain and mill my own.

Yea, healthy eating and aging,
