Tasty and Healthy - July 12, 2012

Warm Summer Greetings and a Hearty Welcome to this week's newsletter.

Our pesticide-free Okra is slowly coming in. We're slogging in our fields harvesting as much as possible these days, depending on the rains! Thanks for always brightening our days with your encouragement.

Special Interest:

Just picked today! UNSHELLED Zipper Cream Peas and Black-eye Peas. Same price as previous years - $24.00 per bushel. Please phone the farm today or Friday to reserve, as we cannot leave them in the shell for long, before they require shelling and freezing.

If interested in SHELLED black-eye peas, conk peas, or zipper peas, please phone the farm to place an order. Peas are in our standard two pound bag. $8 per bag.

As always, please feel free to phone the farm for special requests or special orders. We'll do everything we can to accommodate you. If you need something from the Farmers Market in Plant City, it is best to phone by Wednesday afternoon.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services visits to our farm to test our soil and plants. For more information about our farming techniques, and the testing we undergo, please click here.

Gran'ma Angie thanks you for the bags! She hopes you will keep on bringing 'em. Thanks for "recycling" your plastic bags with us! It helps us keep prices down.
