Vendor Spotlight: D’s JELLIES

 I am Dianne Herring and I sell D’s Mayhaw  Jelly, D’s Hot Pepper Jelly, and D’s Blackberry Jelly. My husband, Phillip, and I have been married for 41 years and our country home is near Cottonwood, AL in Houston County. Sitting on our front porch is an enjoyable place to spend time together.  Our garden and fruit orchard provides the peppers, blackberries, and mayhaws that I gather for D’s Jellies. Being a part of The Market at Dothan Nurseries since it began has been a pleasure. I also sell our blackberries in late May and early June. I have a blog for my recipes – mycookingmemories.com. I am also a contributing chef for Wiregrass Living Magazine. 

Quality products come from home grown quality ingredients!

Slow Roasted Lamb with Kale, Sweet Potatoes and Chickpeas is one of those fantastic one-pot dishes that takes minimal effort and tastes great. It’s a complete meal with protein, veg and starch. It takes a while to cook, but that’s mostly inactive time. The work is pretty much all up front and takes maybe 20 minutes total.

AVALON FARMS I’ve pulled all of our winter vegetables. Although the Dino kale will probably be back in a week or so. Planted onions last week. Southern Belle Red, White Bermuda and Yellow Granex (think Vidalia).
Sugar Snap peas will be going in the ground next week.  Followed shortly by fingerling, red pontiac and yukon gold potatoes.
Asparagus is an early spring crop. Usually it starts in April, with this weird weather this year it might start early. Keep checking on the website.  The standard is a 1 lb bundle. Would anyone be interested in ½ lb bundles?

Vendor Spotlight: SANDSPUR FARMS

Who is Sandspur Farms? Well, it’s the dream of a father turned reality by his middle daughter of three girls. My parents moved to the homesteaded property when I was six months old. This same property has been in our family for now over 100 years. He worked years getting the place back in shape. I’m thirty-six now and am bringing his dreams to reality. We raise heritage breeds of hogs such as Duroc, Berkshire and Hampshire. I have a Hereford cross sow that I raised from one of my first litters. Their meat, whether purebred or not, is so much better in quality and taste than anything found in the grocery stores. And actually the first cross between two breeds yields the best because it’s a combination of the best qualities. They call it hybrid vigor. (Look into it for some extremely interesting info).

This is one of our babies that is a week and a half old and wasn’t doing so well in a litter of eleven. Our neighbor is raising her as a pet.


They’re allowed to roam free never spending a day on concrete. They have grassy fields, oak trees with acorns and pecans, plus they get fresh veggies. We don’t believe in feeding them only stuff to get fat on but to be healthy and happy pigs for the best tasting pork, just like our grandparents had growing up and some now into their 90’s. However, they will create a stampede of a situation when they see us out and about in the fields. They were quick to learn that if they come to their two legged mom when she calls them, she has treats for them. They eat what we grow, all NON-GMO.  We know what they eat from day one until the last day. We believe that when we have less going into a product we should not be charging an outrageous price. We also believe that when you take care of the land and animals, they will in turn take care of you. We love our pork and believe that it truly is the best that money can buy. We want to remain affordable for singles, families of four and more and everyone in between.  Price and customer service are our number two priorities, after caring for the animals. 

We also raise Texas Longhorns just as carefully as our pigs, but I love my piggies way more.  We’re lucky to be part of the Market at Dothan and have grown some of the best friendships from customers ordering. You’re not just a name or an order, you’re somebody we are feeding a healthy product to just as we feed and care for our family. You are family.

January 14 Market Newsletter


What We’re About

Recently someone asked my why our Market does not have (insert fruit or vegetable product) like some of the roadside vendors they drive by on a regular basis. They thought it strange those people would offer certain food items that we do not. It got me to thinking about our core values: Fresh, Local, Sustainable and Year Round.

While roadside products may appear FRESH, (as opposed to overripe or poor quality), sometimes that’s not the case as many items can be refrigerated an extended time or ripened with gasses before being put on display for sale. They are seldom LOCAL. More often than not, they have been purchased from a wholesaler who got vast quantities by truck from down in Florida. If not there they’ve probably been hauled off a boat from Central America. These too have been subject to refrigeration, spray, dye or gasses. Market at Dothan limits our distance to within fifty miles of Dothan, ensuring that the food you purchase from us is truly LOCAL. As far as FRESH, it is usually picked 1-2 days before pickup on Fridays.

The other issue is SUSTAINABILITY. Sustainability is all about growing food without depleting natural resources. The nutrients taken from the soil by crops must be replaced using natural methods. The USDA defines sustainable farming as agriculture that:

*Enhances the natural resources upon which society lives
*Efficiently uses resources by implementing natural controls and biocycles
*Is economically viable
*Enhances life for farmers and those eating the products

The grand hope of sustainable farming is that mankind will be able to continue living off the land without depleting natural resources and ruining the earth. To be sustainable, farmers must also be able to afford their business.


While sometimes underappreciated, the kumquat provides a fresh source of chewable vitamin C during winter cold and flu season. Kumquats grow well in the Wiregrass and many homeowners let them go to waste.


The last core value of Market at Dothan is YEAR ROUND. While it is nice to serve fresh berries during the fall and winter, it is not natural, and it is not necessarily what our bodies need the most. Case in point: citrus in this region ripens and is available most of the winter months. What does citrus offer? Vitamin C. We all know that. And what do we need during the fall and winter months to help fight off colds and flu? Vitamin C, of course. There are other studies showing the value of root vegetables during the cold months as well as leafy green brasseric vegetables which are very popular in the deep south.

The downside of a Year Round Market is unpredictable weather. Those of you who ordered root crops last week experienced the downside of that as our recent cold snap damaged them severely and has limited what our growers are able to offer this week.

That being said, THANK YOU from all of us here at Market at Dothan.

Growing and Going . . .


Special Announcement


Friday is a special day for us at Market at Dothan. For a number of weeks we have been in contact with the Daleville Chamber of Commerce ironing out an idea from one of our brilliant vendors: A Daleville Pickup Location!

This Friday at 11:30, Daleville is hosting a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for our new pickup location at the corner of 134 and Daleville Avenue. Wendy Robbins will be delivering Market orders to that location on Fridays between 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.

We realize that coming to our regular (perfect!) Market location at Dothan Nurseries doesn’t work for everybody and there are many in the Wiregrass who would LOVE to be able to participate more but can’t because of work, distance, etc. This is one way to make the Market more accessible to our friends and colleagues in Daleville, Level Plains, Ft. Rucker and Enterprise. Many of you have been making the drive to Dothan as you are able and this is one thing we can do to make things easier for YOU.

So thank you, all of you who have been loyal supporters of the Market. A huge thank you to Nancy at the Daleville Chamber of Commerce who has had such a huge part in making this happen, and a huge thank you to Wendy Robbins (picture below) who thought of this and is making it possible. You’re all the BEST!


If you are picking up at Dothan Nurseries there is nothing special you need to do. Your order will be bagged and ready for your arrival as usual.

If you need to pick up your order in Daleville, use the words, “DALEVILLE PLEASE” in the comments section of your order. That will alert us that your completed order needs to travel to meet you.

And that’s all there is to it!

Wishing You and Yours A

IMPORTANT MARKET ANNOUNCEMENT

It has been one year since I took over management of Market At Dothan. Many of you remember those early 2016 sad disasters masquarading as newsletters. I am so grateful for the kind patience and support of both our vendors and customers during these 12 months. Most of you have no idea how your observations, ideas and advice have helped to improve Market policies and procedures.

We are still transitioning! One of the things I kept bumping into via customer remarks over the year concerned the organization of our Market (ordering) page. I’m happy to tell you that it should be much easier to navigate now.


If you’ve not looked yet it’s ok to do it now (click here). We welcome honest feedback and hope the change will make it easier for you to find what you want or need. Mrs. Melody, who has been with us a long time said this: “I took a look at the new website as you requested and I really like it. Its going to be much easier to navigate because you can click on the category of things you want to purchase and see everything available. As I told you before if I was looking for eggs and scrolled to the “E” section I wouldn’t always find all the eggs available because some vendors would list them as “fresh” or “free range” they would be under “F” and I wouldn’t find them. I think this is a great idea and I think the other customers are going to like it as well.”

It’s important to know that you CAN STILL LOOK UP SPECIFIC VENDORS. Under the category listings is a box called “Display Options”. This is where you can choose one or more vendors to view. Please take advantage of that function often as all our growers are wonderful and deserve the limelight.

Lastly, THANK YOU to all our vendors who helped with this project. Many hands make light work and I couldn’t ask to work with a better group of folks. Here’s to a better year in 2017!

Blessings to You and Yours,
Ros

Wishing You and Yours A

Happy Birthday Chloe

It’s almost a typical Saturday at my house. I’ve sequestered all the honey in a small room with a heater to keep it warm enough not to granulate. Part of the animals have been fed. We’ve already had two visitors this morning. We’re enjoying the last of the satsumas from the tree in the flower bed. There’s a Frazier fir wrapped in twine in the living room waiting to be set up and decorated. And my Chloe is 10 years old today.


I try not to mix the various parts of my life too much, but many of you probably know that my husband and I are German Shepherd lovers. Chloe has been with us the longest. Right after my Mr.’s heart surgery he announced one day that he wanted a dog to go on his daily (rehab) walks with him. And he wanted a BIG dog. He wanted a Shepherd.

So the search began. He found an ad in the newspaper about someone needing to re-home their white GSD (German Shepherd Dog.) Hats off to this lovely family for their responsible wisdom as they INTERVIEWED the interested respondents to determine the best home for their beautiful dog. And we were chosen. Chloe came home with us a few days later and life at the Horton house has not been the same since.

That was 6 plus years ago. It set us on a journey that wound up changing our lives. Chloe is the only one of our GSD’s who is loyal to me above my husband. Here on the farm she’s a friend, a protector, and a great companion. She loves people, gets along good with the other critters, still likes to harass the horses, and will roll around in the grass out of sheer joy just like she did when she first came home. Happy Birthday Sweet Girl! You were a Christmas blessing to someone ten years ago and are a blessing to me every day!

Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole
from Richter Farms

1# Sausage
6 eggs
6 slices bread, cubed
2 c milk
2 c shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground dry mustard

Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and set aside.

Layer bread cubes, sausage and Cheddar cheese in a lightly greased 13×9 baking dish. In a bowl, beat together eggs, milk, salt and mustard. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cube mixture. Cover, and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight. You can cook right away if you forgot to make ahead but the texture is much better if you refrigerate overnight.

Remove the casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350F.

Bake 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

We hope you are as excited about Open House as we are! Our vendors have been working hard in preparation for Open House next Thursday, December 1. For anyone not familiar with this event, twice a year Dothan Nurseries hosts an Open House and our Market at Dothan vendors come together for an old fashioned Farmer’s Market complete with tents, farmers, food, festivities, good company, good conversation, and lots of fun. It’s a good opportunity to stock up for the holiday season as well as shop and meet and/or renew contacts with your market vendors. A few guest vendors there as well. I have it on good faith there will be yummy samples, baked goods, and gift items in addition to local, fresh sustainable food. Bring the family. Bring a few market bags for shopping. You can even bring well behaved pets on a leash.

Market at Dothan Thanksgiving 2016 Issue


Dothan’s Sustainable Market is Now Open

UPDATE ON HAITI

Kirsty and Mackenzie returned from Haiti last week. Their visit to the island was an intense two weeks accessing the needs of the village and formulating a game plan to maximize the recovery effort for the farmers and farmer’s cooperative of Petit Trou.

In their initial efforts, Kirsten and MacKenzy have been working with the local leaders to organize and prioritize where aid money should go.  Those who had their homes decimated are at the top of the list.  Many volunteers worked to get supplies up the hillsides where the trucks could not travel and homes were hardest hit.  Also a top priority is the construction of tree nurseries.  With the additional money that Market at Dothan raised this past week, we will have more than fully funded one of those nurseries.  These nurseries are vital to the local economy because Haitians depend heavily on fruit trees for food.  These trees take years to bear fruit, so the money we raised will be put into action as soon as possible to build a nursery and plant trees.

THANK YOU for your part in making this happen! Kirsty and Mackenzie have not had a chance to update the blog at Haitians For Change yet but feel free to check out who they are and their work creating and now helping rebuild a sustainable farming community in this country. We at Market at Dothan are proud to stand with them and will continue to accept donations and seeds for rebuilding.


ANNOUNCEMENTS

Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away! At my house our goal is to have the dining room back by that time so we can use the table. As it is there is still a lot of clutter to “unpack” and deal with from recent repairs. Only last night we moved five (5!) full size bookcases out of there.

With Thanksgiving in mind, be sure to read the Vendor remarks in the following section for the wonderful foods they are offering this week that are sure to make your preparations healthier and happier. I practically drooled reading the product description of Sweet Acre’s Pecan Pie Cheesecake.

For fun and inspiration we are sharing some fun Thanksgiving photo ideas in this newsletter.

Don’t forget about CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE on Thursday, December 1, 3pm – 7 pm. Order pickup will take place that day instead of Friday morning and our vendors will be on site with produce, vegetables and many goods to help get your Christmas season off to a good start. Make plans to join us!

We also have a few more smoked ham hocks or you can throw in a few pork bones for added flavor, or some pieces of our smoked sausage. More inventory is being updated too, like bacon and ground pork and cubed pork. Collards are getting their first taste of cold this weekend so next week they should have that winter taste that we all love. Our pimento cheese spread would be a great idea for a quick sandwich if you’re tired of turkey. Satsumas are having a great harvest at the neighbor’s farm so we are listing a bulk quantity on those as well as the 5lb bags.

Welcome November!


Avalon Farms is Back!

This and That

Have you been outside today? Drought aside, the weather is MARVELOUS! We’ve had a busy day. A nice family from Marianna brought their son up to meet our dogs this morning. There’s a lady training four legged critters under the big pecan tree by the barn. So far the Mr. and I have got about 1000 of 3000 strawberry plugs in the ground. It’s a good day to be a farmer!


ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our Market vendors and I are having fun planning and plotting our Christmas Open House this year. It will be Thursday, December 1, 3pm to 7pm in sync with Dothan Nursery’s annual Christmas Open House. This is always a fun and festive event. The Nursery provides refreshments and our farmers will have grills going with samples of all sorts of wonderful foods. This year we are inviting a few outside vendors whose food related products are guaranteed to make Open House THE place for wholesome sustainable foods and gifts.

I am beyond excited to announce AVALON FARMS IS BACK!!!!!! Those of you who have been with the Market a long time will remember Wendy and her delicious vegetables. Be sure to read her blurb in the Vendor section.

Thank you to everyone who continues to give to the Haiti Relief Fund. Kirsty and Mackenzie, the couple spearheading the assistance to the farmers co-op in Petit Trou, are still in Haiti. Electronic communication is still out of the question from there but we hope to get a report after they return next week.

Blessings of Fall

Food and Fresh Air

Many of you know that here at the Horton house we’ve been going through some much needed home repairs/renovation/remodeling. If you’ve ever lived through something like that while living IN your home you know how taxing it can be on every day life.

We have not sat at a table to eat for about three weeks now. And we haven’t been able to pile up in front of the television with a plate either. What has made this bearable, and even enjoyable is the screen porch. It’s not fancy but the seating is comfy, the charm is rustic and the conversation is good. It has been THE sanity saver around here.

So the following photo is my personal wink and nod of gratitude to food and fresh air. My husband’s Norwegian relatives (300 miles above the Artic Circle) eat outdoors at EVERY opportunity, and with it permitting a lot for us these days, why not?


ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our Market vendors work hard to list accurate quantities of what they have available each week. It’s one of the reasons we encourage everyone to order as close to Market opening as possible. It’s also the reason that if you order an item with a 0 or negative quantity you might not receive that item. We work hard to keep that from happening, but just in case . . . now you know!

There are several vendor announcements in this week’s Market section. We hope you’ll take advantage of the FRESHNESS!

Haiti Relief is ongoing and we’re happy to report that donations continue to come in. This week Chris will be shipping a large quantity of seed to the farmers coop of Petit Trou de Nippes. Thank you Sandy Farms for your part in this!

Be sure to keep an eye on the Market schedule as we approach the holidays. Our last November pickup date will be Nov. 18 which is the Friday before Thanksgiving. The next pickup date will the Thursday, December 1 at Dothan Nursery’s annual Christmas Open House. Our farmers will be here in person with treats, samples and lots of items to help get your Christmas Season off to a good start.

If you 1) LOVE candles 2) Love having the air in your home clean, fresh & relaxing 3) Need to help rid an area of unpleasant odors, beeswax candles are for you!. Burning beeswax releases negative ions in the air that cleanse it and help those living with asthma and allergies breathe easier.

All of Danny’s LETTUCE GREENS are discounted this week.

SANDSPUR FARMS “While the veggies are growing in the field and the pigs are grazing, we are enjoying the fall. Our cane stalks are ready if you need a fall decoration. You can tie 3 or 4 together and they’ll stand like an indian teepee. Also, we are in the process of canning pumpkin as an alternative to store bought. Which leads to pumpkin bread, of course! Both mini and full size loaves.
    We’ve updated some pork inventory too. There’s still one more pork tenderloin available. This is the really tender part of a pork chop that is left whole since we made cubed pork out of the pork chops which utilizes the meaty part of chops. Pork grab bags are still available to fill with smoked bacon or smoked link sausage and pork chops and oh, wow my mouth just started watering! Thank you to each and everyone for all of your purchases that allow us to live the farm life.”
