Grumpy Goat: Weblog Entry
First off the farm store will be open 2-6:30 today. We really need bags so if you want to clear your cabinets of any paper or plastic bags please feel free to drop them off.Get edamame beans while you can – we only have one more row to harvest after today. We still have lots of peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, okra, etc.
Also we have a new kitty on the farm. She showed up this morning and seemed very excited to see people again. Our best guess is that someone dropped her in farm country and she’s been wandering for a while. She’s definitely skinny but is very friendly, albeit a little weary at first. So if you see this new orange gal walking around show her some love. We will be putting a kitty support jar in the store. If anyone is feeling extra generous we would much appreciate funds to put towards this gals vet bills. We hate to ask, but we are maxed out on vet bills for the year with two icu stays, two Ohio state vet trips, on top of all the normal vet visits and the additional kitty litter and the spaying of that mama cat earlier this year. We will be taking her for her shots and to get spayed and all funds donated will go towards that. If you can donate ,Thank you, and if you can’t just give her some lovin’!
Lastly , on Friday we will have watermelons and the first delicattas of the season. All bread on Friday will be brought to Handmade Harvest at Hausfeld Motors in Munster. Stop on down 2-7! Or Saturday 9-12.

Siloam Springs, AR: The Online Market is Open!
Join us for Kids Day at the Market!
The 2nd Saturday each month.
The Power of Produce (POP) Club provides a fun opportunity for children to engage in the local food system through conversations directly with farmers, educational games and demonstrations, and exposure to new fruits and vegetables. In addition to participating in educational activities, POP Club kids receive POP Club tokens to spend at the market, allowing them to make their own shopping decisions at the market. This program is set-up for ages 3-12.
To participate in this year’s POP Club all you need to do is login to your Locally Grown account, add a “Pop Club Kids Day RSVP” for each participating child to your cart, and check out! This will help us know how many kiddos plan to stop by during Kids Day. Don’t forget, you’ll have to “RSVP” each month.
*Creating an account is easy, if you haven’t already done so! No credit card required to create an account OR to RSVP.
2 Bite Club, POP tokens pick up, and all other information will be located at the concession stand in Memorial Park.

Champaign, OH: Colors Of The Holiday!
Sorry for the second post, but while I was placing my market order, I put in my order for Champaign Berry blackberries, and noticed that Red Raspberries are also listed!! The red and the blue (sort of) in the red, white, and blue (real dark blue)
Anyway, all this to say that berry season will be fading, so why not stock up?
Now, go, enjoy, I will stop pestering you…
Champaign, OH: Happy Holiday Weekend!
Just checking in, making sure all of you are enjoying the extended weekend, and hoping that you don’t forget that the market is here, open, and ready to take those orders because I know, like always, it gets a bit lost in the shuffle, when there is a Monday holiday!
I just don’t want you to be sad, that you missed out on all of the late season goodness!
Stock up, now!!! You can freeze so much of the seasonal produce, and sweet corn, so you can still have that summer feeling, all winter long…
I’m just sitting here, with coffee, making my own market orders….what about you?
