New Field Farm's Online Market:  Of Cabbages and Copra onions


We’ve added red and green cabbage this week, as well as Copra onions, a strong cooking onion that stores well.

The scallions are from the fourth and last planting so they’re much smaller than the recent large ones from the third planting.

We have a little arugula from a small planting that went into some extra space in the hoophouse. More plantings are on the way.

Potatoes have come down in price a bit this week. If you’ve gotten red potatoes recently you might wonder why some of them aren’t so red. The variety Dark Red Norlands has always done that as the harvest season progresses. I’m not sure why. It affects appearance, but not the quality of the potato.

Lacinato kale will probably come and go in availability. It’s generally slow-growing and, like all the other brassicas (cabbage, broccoli etc.), is planted in the lowest section of the field which means that this year it’s roots have been wet for much of the season. This contributes to slow growth. Today’s heavy rains aren’t helping! If I could have predicted the weather I would have planted them higher up (useless thought number 20 million and 2).

Thank you as ever for your orders.

Remember to hit that last “submit” button. I really dislike disappointing a customer who comes to market, only to find no order in their name because they didn’t hit the last button. When your order is placed, you will receive an email confirmation. If for any reason you fail to receive this confirmation, please contact Linda as soon as you realize it’s missing.

Also please go to our Facebook page & like, comment, and share this week’s post. Facebook isn’t allowing me to post on multiple sites, or post multiple photos. So please help us spread the word.

Siloam Springs, AR:  Online Market Open! Inventory list attached

Good morning! Apologies for opening late. I slept a little longer than intended. Guess the Farm to Table event took more of my energy than I realized. Be sure to check out all the amazing products available. Have a great week and see you Saturday!


Yalaha, FL:  Sorry I haven't been consistent

September has been so Freaking HOT this year. I had been hoping for an early cool down this season so that we could get the fall crops coming early. Sigh.
Anyway, I’m not going to open the Market this week or next but Send me a message if you really want something.
What I have in ample supply includes;
Weeds (they come with a bonus, pull them yourself.)
Sunflower Shoots


Anyway, as I said, if you want anything we actually have at this time just send me a message (Next year I might have to take all of September off.)

Winnsboro Locally Grown Texas:  Market is Open

Good morning,

I keep wishing for Fall to come early, but it is not cooperating so far! Growers continue to struggle this time of year, battling the heat, but at least the roadsides are looking a little happier since the rain.
We have several vendors traveling this month too, so please bear with us as our selection is a bit slim. By next month, we should be harvesting sweet potatoes & winter squash, as well as enjoying cooler temperatures!

Have a wonderful week,
