See all products

Market stays open from Fridays 9 p.m. until at least 9 p.m. Mondays!

Thank you for choosing Northeast Georgia Locally Grown as a way to support your local producers. This online farmers market allows you to buy directly from multiple farms committed to chemical-free and local produce all year long! CHEMICAL-FREE means produce and pastures grown without synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides. LOCAL means within 80 miles from the market pickup locations (usually much much closer). Do you know someone who grows chemical-free food in the area? Get them in touch with us. Know someone who wants fresh food? Spread the word. Put the two together, and that’s growing organically!

PICKUP TIME is Wednesday from 5-6:30 p.m.

If you do not get an email ORDER CONFIRMATION right after you order then your order is NOT complete. Log back in and your order might still be there waiting for you to check out! If you have any trouble or questions at all, we are here to help; simply reply to this email.

COVID19: Thanks for recognizing we can all do our part in operating in the safest way possible. Be on the lookout for the order reminder email with any changes to pickup or ways you can help minimize risk for our volunteers and each other. Thanks for your support!*

Martin's Farmstand:  Thank you Lord for a good harvest


We are open today (Saturday Nov 20 ) and next week we are open Monday-Wednesday from 10 am-6 pm (Nov 22-24). We are closed Thanksgiving day and Friday -Saturday of next week Between Dec 2 and ending Dec 23 we will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 12 noon till 5 pm. After the new year we plan to be open Saturday afternoons from noon till 5 pm through out the rest of the winter. Thanksgiving time is a time to slow down and to assess our lives and to especially focus on our blessings. For farmers and homesteaders it is a time look at the harvest and just say Thank you. On the farm we are working at putting the winter mulch of leaves on the berries and putting various equipment in order and into dry winter storage. Now is also the beginning of what I call planning season. Before we can order seed and supplies one needs to think about so many details both big and small. Daniel

Miami County Locally Grown:  Adventure Update


For those of you who have read about our ongoing journey and offered encouragement, support and friendship, your kindness and generosity just mean the world to us. Thank you!

Here’s an update of our adventure, and an attempt to answer many questions we’ve had –

No, we do not have a set timetable for when the move will be finished. We hoped to be down before the weather turned too ugly – the roads to our place I don’t want to traverse in ice and snow. I’ve gotten to a point I never thought I’d reach when we first went down to look – I no longer hold my breath at certain spots along the way, and I can even look out the window (and down!) without that unsettling feeling in my stomach. The children got such a kick out of that initially, when they’d say, “Wow, Mom, look!” And I’d look, and squeal, close my eyes, and try to slide more to the middle of the vehicle (more for their giggles than anything, ahem).

We’ve moved some of our beef cattle down (we have a two-horse livestock trailer where we can fit two cows in the back and a calf up front) as we’ve already fenced them a paddock where their water is at their barn as well as three additional connected fields that we can open them into as they need. But we are still waiting on the electric wire we need to come in (why are so many supplies so hard to get right now!? Yikes!) so we can run electric for the fencer and water lines to the other (dairy) barn, before we can move the last two dairy cows down. Thankfully we’ve kept the calves on their mothers so we’re not milking everyone, which simplifies life for us, as well as our two Saintly friends who milk for us in the evenings when we go down to work each week.

Our schedule is so fluid right now nothing is the same one week to the next, and I’m amazed how resilient the children have been, because Mommy feels nothing but haggard (why is it so hard to sleep when you’re so tired! I’d really like to have a Big Red Button to shut my brain off, as would my husband). It makes me laugh, and sigh, when one child or another asks, “When I wake up tomorrow, where will we be?” Or “Where are we sleeping tonight?” Quite the ongoing camping adventure. And only one more license plate to collect… Hawaii!

And more than anything right now it’s a matter of clearing back the brush, brambles, and forest to find the old fence rows (anywhere from 10-50ft back so far) so we can pull out the old 5 strands of barb wire and rotten posts before putting up the new fence, or figuring where we need to clear to make our own new fences work for our cattle, pigs, and sheep – even the garden and orchard are getting 6ft fence with barb wire on top – Lee said it looks like a military compound haha. But deer and turkeys beware – I am not working this hard to feed you instead of us! We’re at a good place right now, steadily working along on fence for the pigs, while waiting on the electric wire.

We’d decided to only take down a few sows, the boar, and a feeder who’ll be ready before spring, and while we’re up in Ohio have gotten some of the other pigs into the freezer – better they feed us than we feed them, and easier to transport! So that’s been a fun fall job, and our Happy Thanksgiving project, although the sound of Lee and ALL the children crunching on cracklings for some reason is like nails on a chalkboard to me, wow.

And as one of our good-customers-turned-dear-friend once said, one of the beautiful things about farming is the diversity of the work – if you don’t particularly like today’s job, there’ll be another tomorrow, or even after lunch!
