Farm News of the Week


It’s almost time for cooler-weather crops like kale, broccoli, and winter squash. Frontier Family Farm has added the first of the fall lineup, Sweet Potatoes, to the market this week.


Knottynuffacres items are unavailable on the market this week, while Debbie is entertaining hurricane evacuees. We hope to see her back next week, as we pray that her family’s belongings are all safe from the storm!



Wayne Diller has added several cuts of chicken to the market: breasts, drumsticks, thighs, giblets, livers, soup stock, and chicken feet. His broilers were raised on organic pasture with non GMO grain; no hormones or antibiotics. USDA approved processing.

Chicken Breasts, Drumsticks, and Feet.
“Why feet?” you ask.
“Because your body needs lots of vitamins, trace minerals, collagen, and calcium.” Glad you asked.

Farm News of the Week

Frost Farm Purebred Nubian Goats are so cute, I thought they deserve their own spot in the newsletter, since I missed them last week when introducing the farm as a new producer. They are kept on a diet of fresh hay, Organic Dairy Goat Grain, and whatever forage they happen upon while roaming the pastures of Frost Farm. And now, a small number of these cuties can be yours!

Purebred Nubian doeling and registered buck, and buckling.


The fall reblooming azaleas are beginning to bloom at Dogwood Valley Greenhouse! It seems a little early to me, but here they are. They’re in very limited supply, so if you want a lovely shrub with a good pop of fall bloom when few other things are blooming, get one quickly! Bonus: they’ll bloom in spring at “regular” azalea time too! Also please don’t forget about our buy-one, get-one special of Hardy Species Begonia. They’re beautiful right now!





Daniel Tidwell from Triple T Farms writes:

We picked up a new animal from the processor and we’ll get the new inventory on the market for this week.

Three generations of the Tidwell family raise a herd of approximately 75 grass fed beef without the use of growth hormones or antibiotics. Grass-fed beef has less saturated fat and more Omega 3 fatty acids than grain-fed beef, making grass fed beef a valuable part of a heart healthy diet.

(L to R) Ground beef, Sirloin Steak; Triple T herd on pasture.

Remember those striking ducks from Solace Farm? Well, we found some scabs at Frost Farm. Welcome to Paula Frost, who writes:

We are a small farm with a lot of heart raising chickens, ducks, Nubian dairy goats, and beef cattle. Our mixed flock of Pekin and Runner ducks enjoy kickin’ it down on the pond daily and lay the most delicious and nutritious eggs.

Farm News of the Week


From Dogwood Valley Greenhouse:

The summer gardening season is winding down, and there aren’t many perennials that flower faithfully at this time of year. But we do have a few, as well as a few nice herb plants:

(Top): Hardy Species Begonia, Coneflowers in several colors, Northern Lady Fern.
(Middle): Lemongrass, Hen & Chicks, French (intermedia) Lavender.
(Bottom): Creeping Rosemary, Plumbago, Toad Lily.


“Dairy Queen” is one of the farms in the Altamont area which are owned by Mennonite farmers and which list some of their products on our market.

This facility has begun making block mozarella cheese, using their unprocessed milk as the main ingredient. Because this cheese is un-pasteurized, Tennessee law states that it may not be sold for human consumption.

This facility also makes butter from their unpasteurized milk.

Farm News of the Week


Some of our farmers don’t have time to set up a table and actually meet you face-to-face on Thursdays, so I thought it might be nice to do the next best thing and “introduce” a few of them to you in the newsletter. Amy Rae and her husband Caleb own Solace Farm in Coalmont, TN. Amy has written us a short introduction:

We took 3 steers off to the processor today, so we will be restocked on our start-to-finish grass fed beef in a couple more weeks. These Scottish Highland steers were born on our farm, and were never treated with anything. Highlands are a smaller-framed, slow-growing breed that are well-suited for grass-fed. It takes 3 years to raise them to maturity so they have a slower turnover rate than commercial beef breeds, but it is well worth the wait for their amazing beef! They are a rare breed that marbles even on grass since their thick furry coat means they don’t have to put their fat on the outside for warmth. It frequently wins taste tests, and the Queen of England keeps a small herd for personal use!






Knottynuffacres has added “San Marzano”, an Italian low-acid cooking tomato with thick dry flesh and few seeds, a great tomato for stewing and/or canning sauces and pastes. Deb has also added two types of peppers, jalapeños and Anaheims.

(Top) Jalapeños Peppers;
(Bottom L to R) San Marzano Tomatoes and Anaheim Peppers.


Native Fare farm has closed their market offerings for this season so Riley can return to college. They wish to thank their loyal customers for another good season.
