I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed the fireworks in Canton and the Creator’s light show also. The black clouds and thunder set a magnificent backdrop for the fireworks.
The freezers are full of beef, chicken and pork. We have plenty of butter and the cheese is being shipped. One of our fellow food enthusiasts just returned from a road trip where she visited Meadow Valley Farm and the family that makes our butter. She had nothing but good things to say about the people and the operations. I look forward to the pictures she is going to share and hope to share more with all of you.
We have plenty of wonderful vegetables to choose from this week as well as baked goods. Please place your orders before 8:00 pm. WE will see you Wednesday.
Happy 4th of July
What an extraordinary task our founding fathers set out to do and did with eloquence, courage of conviction and a vision for a future nation that had never been established. We are so blessed to call ourselves United States citizens, aren’t we?
We have an abundance of summer vegetables rolling in from the gardens; squash, green beans, sweet corn and more. The wild blackberries from Weedy Soil Farm were so tart and sweet – flavor explosion in your mouth!
Cedar Rock Dairy has buttermilk available this week. Freeze it in smaller portions to use in baking cornbread, hush puppies, pancakes or chocolate cake. Fantastic.

Milk orders due tonight
Please get your milk orders in tonight for Wednesday pick-up at Cherokee Market. I will close out ordering at 8:00pm.
This week the market is open for milk orders only and only until Saturday evening so please order after you finish reading this.The milk is to be picked up at the Cherokee Market, located at 11611 Cumming Hwy., Canton, GA. Their number is 678-341-8032. The hours are 9-7 daily.
The milk will be in the white coolers when you come in the door from the back of the store where the deck is. Parking is behind the store so it will be easy to come in and out. Leave your empty jars stocked beside the coolers. Please bring them in a box or bag, not loose. Leave them in the box or bag for pick-up. Although I do hope you will bless Lisa with your business, do not pay Cherokee Market for your milk. You will pay for it the following week at our regular market.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Important market information.
We are looking forward to another week of yumminess – we have an abundance of spearmint, apple mint and Malabar spinach here on the farm. Weedy Soil Farm is looking at a good supply of squash and green beans starting this week along-with her beautiful greens.
The market will be closed the week of the 21st – 28th. We are going out of town so stock up on items this Wednesday to carry you over until the following week. MILK: I will open the market on Friday the 19th to allow milk orders and will close it Saturday night. This way Sam can still deliver milk to you while we are gone. Lisa Meyer of Cherokee Market on Hwy. 20 has agreed to be our pick-up spot. Here is how this will work. Order your milk on Friday to Saturday and pick-up anytime Wednesday the 24th between 9 and 7. Leave your jars at the market and we will pick them up along with the coolers when we return. BTW, Lisa does carry Cedar Rock Dairy milk if you ever run out. Her address is 11611 Cumming Hwy., Canton. Remember, this is not for this weeks orders, just next week.
