Dawson Local Harvest:  Lettuce, Kale, Snow Peas, & More on This Week's Dawson Harvest!


Dawson Local Harvest for October 20th

Lettuce, Kale, Snow Peas, & More on This Week’s Dawson Harvest!

HI EVERYBODY!

Big Week for Produce Lovers as LEILANI’S has several cool-weather Veggies ready to pick! Lettuce, a couple of varieties of Kale, and delectable little Snow Peas join Green Beans, Cucumbers, Eggplants, and all sorts of Peppers. And we still have fresh-picked TOMATOES, including great-tasting Heirlooms still on the vine. Take advantage of this abundance while it’s available!

BACK IN TIME FARMS has added an 8-pack Chicken to their Market listing this week. This ultra-tender pastured Chicken pack has 2 breasts, 2 wings, 2 thighs, & 2 backs for a great family dinner and lots more. Check it in the Meats section.

What’s the Deal with Raw Milk?
As you know, the Dawson Harvest has raw Milk from LITTLE BROWN COW CREAMERY. So why should you drink unpasteurized raw Milk? When you heat milk to destroy potential harmful bacteria it also degrades heat-sensitive vitamins like C, E, B-12, and good antibodies. Raw Milk offers some natural protection from allergies and asthma, and, of course, it has a richer, creamier taste! Try a gallon yourself, on the Milk tab of The Market.

THE MARKET IS NOW OPEN!

REMEMBER! You can now order until Tuesday night at 9 pm. Pick up your order at Leilani’s Gardens Friday afternoons from 4 to 6 pm.

You’ll find the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST at http://dawsonville.locallygrown.net

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible! We guarantee your satisfaction with all products in the DAWSON LOCAL HARVEST.

Have a happy and healthy week!

I am excited to share that Dogwood Valley Greenhouse would like to offer a special for the next two weeks (this week is the FINAL week for this sale) – BOGO on Hardy Begonias. I have added this special to the market as a separate item under live plants.

I would also like to open pre-orders on Christmas decorations.
Kissing Balls on hangers – about 13-15" diameter – retail $35, pre-sale 10% discount = $31.50
Christmas Basket Centerpiece – about 10" in diameter – retail $20, pre-sale 10% discount = $18
Wreaths – on 16" base, measuring around 22-24" diameter – retail $27, pre-sale 10% discount = $24

These Christmas decorations are all handmade by me, from all natural materials gathered from my property or the local Christmas tree farm, except for the bright red berries and ribbons. All will be in limited quantities, but pre-sale orders will be guaranteed.

Find the Christmas decorations under the Seasonal Items tab!

Nature’s Wealth has added popped popcorn! Our heirloom small kernel popcorn popped up for you.

Botanical Harmony Farm has plenty of Non-Gmo, Free-Range duck eggs still on sale this week! Gathered several times each day, get them while the ducks are happily still laying!

See ya on the porch!!
