I do not think I am up to the milk run this week. While I have been improving I am still having difficulties when I sit in any position for any length of time. I think it is going to be a few weeks longer. The three local dairies that I mentioned last week would love to hear from you.

The market picking are looking nice this week. While our garden is going through a replant, Taylorganic has lots of goodies. We will have some great mushrooms.

We are down to our last few hog reservations, if you are interested please don’t delay.

Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts. We enjoy being your farmers.

Rancho Alegre Farm in Gwinnett has raw milk.
Elsie’s Premium Goodness in Rockdale with raw milk.
You can contact each to see if they may fill your milk needs. There information is available on our growers page. Contact them if you have any questions.

Milk


We have someone who is willing to pick up milk Friday. If you are interested please let us know via email or a a comment in your order. We will need to make sure we can order enough to cover their fuel expenses

Thank you,
Brady

Available for Friday January 18


I hope this finds you all doing ell.
It finds me in pain and discomfort. I am sure you all know by now about my accident.
Luckily I survived with just a broken leg and broken ribs to go along with the glass lodged in my hands, face and head. And lets no forget the muscle tares, strains and sever bruising. But Thank the lord and all who have been praying for me I am alive.

The market is open for the week. My sons have stepped up to the plate to make sure we are moving along. We will be tilling, hilling and planting soon so I will be calling on the promised help soon.

The veggies, cheese, mushrooms and more all look great this week. And yes all the orders we get along with any donations you may wish to make will be helping to keep us afloat. The first of the bills have hit and it looks ugly.

We have not had any takers on the milk run yet. I should be able to make a long trip, riding shotgun, in a few more weeks to train my nephew on where to go so keep an eye out.

I also add to the market this week our new Heritage Hog Reservations. This pork is different from any others you have tried. It is a much darker meat with tremendous flavor. This type of hog also finishes larger than our previous pigs.
They are MuleFoot – Red Waddle crosses.
I expect them to finish in late July or August. They are priced a bit higher than the last round but with rising feed cost, the extra expenses in labor, fuel and added boar and sow cost I see no other alternative.
I will say this though, the quality of the meat and the increased finishing size will keep the cost around $5.00 to $5.50 per lb.

Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts. We enjoy being your farmers.

avaliable Friday 18th and


I hope this funds you all doing well. For those who were not at last weeks markets, my father Brady Bala was in a bad car accident(Tuesday 9th) and is in Grady Hospital. He has a broken femur-a high leg break on his left leg and 5 broken ribs on his right side with lots of cuts and bruises. He will be realeased from Grady some time this week we hope. Our farm products will be avaliable this week however, he will not be able to attend the markets for the next week or so. We will also not be able to get milk from Milky Way until my father can find a replacement to make the trip. If anyone would like to volonteer until he recovers that would be great. Double B Farm will also need some volonteer help around the farm for the next few months to get ready for spring while my father get’s better. This week we will have lots of great produce. The lettuce, carrots, collards, broccoli raab all look great. We have a few more honey bears avaliable. The mushrooms also look good this week along with the Jerusalem Artichoke. We are also excited about listing our half hogs again. We have 22 piglets and plan to make 10 avaliable in the program. The meat will be from heritage hogs as we have a mulefoot boar bread to our variety of sows. The meat will be darker than traditional pork with lots of great flavor. The half shares will be avaliable for 300 dollars each. The finished sizes will be larger than our previous shares since we are using a larger breed of pigs. Taylor Organic has lots of great produce avaliable this week to go along with some wonderfull flat creek cheese.

Remember you have at least 21 meals to plan for this week, 28+ if you include your snacks. We hope some of your selections come from our efforts. We enjoy being your farmers.
