Our animals have never been given any hormones or antibiotics, we even made sure that our seed stock animals were also never given anitbiotics or hormones. We’re working on certification through several programs to show our customers that we mean what we say. Our adventure is growing more and more each year and our goal is 100% customer satisfaction.” HOMEMADE CHEMICAL FREE STRAWBERRY JAM! “This strawberry jam is the first of the season.

Statesboro Market2Go is open!

We added many new products this week. Just take a look at everything we have – 444 items to choose from! And watch for even more produce over the next several weeks as this beautiful weather continues and spring crops mature and are harvested by our growers!

We have seafood – whiting, shrimp, and flounder – all caught off the Atlantic coast. And we have Hunter Cattle’s award winning sausage, along with their other delicious meats.

Be sure to check out the various yogurt flavors and dairy products, as well as the baked goods, coffee, herbs, honey, eggs, and milled grains. So much to choose from!

Have you noticed the beautiful plants from Southern Native Plantings? Every week when Karen drops off the plants our customers ordered, I see something else I want! And of course you should try the compost and fertilizer – even I can have a green thumb with help like that!

And finally, Frali pasta is back!

Enjoy shopping!

Northeast GA Locally Grown:  Northeast Georgia Locallygrown availability list for April 30.

Good evening Locavores,
Last week we talked about eggs on the market and the fact that GMO grains are not allowed in the hens feed.
The same is true for the meat sold in this market. Chickens, pork,and beef sold in this market are required to be raised on pasture and supplemental feed may not contain GMOs.
The farm families who produce meat work hard and pay higher price for gmo free feed in order to produce high quality meat free of contaminants.
We feel blessed to have these excellent and healthy products available in our local area.
Melon Head Farm has the first strawberries of the season available this week. They along with Leah Lake Farm also have asparagus listed.
For those who may not know this weekend is the Celebrate Clayton Event.
This celebration is a lot of fun and downtown Clayton blocked to auto traffic to make room for great arts, food,and music.
Saturday is also opening day for Simplyhomegrown Farmers Market. The market is at the Clayton City Hall complex on Hwy 76w and will be open from 9:00am until 1:00pm.
Have a great weekend and enjoy local food.
