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!*

Grumpy Goat:  Weblog Entry


Happy Winter Everyone,

Hopefully you are all doing better than us this week! We have been huddled by our fireplace as we are still trying to get our boiler up and working again. Fingers crossed we can keep the pipes thawed out until that happens.

I just wanted to draw your attention to a new item I just listed: an Elderberry Syrup Kit. Molly Fogt makes these kits. If you have any questions about them I can put you in contact with her! They are $20.

I also made a batch of Bourbon Spiced nuts that we will have available at Aullwood Nature Center for their holiday show tomorrow. Come and see us, or message me asap, if you would like me to set some aside for you. 1 lb for $16, 1/2 lb for $8. You can email at grumpygoatexperiment@gmail.com or text me at 603-828-8619.

Stay warm everyone!
