Suwanee Whole Life Co-op -- News: Group Buy FCLO This Weekend
This weekend we will take orders for FCLO, Skate Liver Oil and other Green Pasture products.
This is a prepaid pre-order. As with all Group Buys, this item will NOT be available this Tuesday for pick up since I will be placing our order on Monday morning and due to shipping. I expect it to be available for pick up on March 1st.
This is a monthly group buy so don't forget to order this weekend if you need some FCLO!
Lizzie's Pantry has a few items remaining that have been reduced 50% sell final inventory. If you need oats, flax seed, wheat flour, pancake mixes, grains (buckwheat, kamut), or plastic shaker jars order this weekend!
Also, I have great news – Liz will continue to provide chemical free, organic spices to the market on a weekly basis! In addition, we will have a quarterly group buy with Liz for Georgia Olive Oil! More details to come as we get closer to buy date.
Salmon, Water Buffalo and Pastured Meats fully stocked!
It's been a busy week for our farmers and fisherman!
Doug has Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon & Halibut back online! We are fully stocked with Halibut steaks, Salmon Filets, portions, burger, and smoked salmon!
Carrell Farms has ground water buffalo and sausages back on the market!
B&G has grass fed beef, pastured pork and chicken all stocked up too! Please note that the LABEL on B&G's meat will have the processor label on it instead of the farm's. Lynda has been trying to get her new label approved by the state of GA for 3 weeks now. They rejected it this time because the picture of GA state line was not quite straight. In order for her to have meat listed this week she asked her meat packer to put their label on her product. This is completely legal since they package the meats for her. She wants to make sure you all know that it is HER meat though not Williamsburg Packing.
Soap – Go Dots- Soap on the GO! How many times do you need to wash your hands while out of the house? How many times has the soap dispenser been out, or you just don't want to use the synthetic detergents with the toxic chemicals in it? UGH!! SO…….take some HoneyBerry handcrafted soap in your purse or backpack! Always handy, one good hand washing worth of soap in a DOT! Just pitch the tiny bit left when done. Your tin stays nice, your soap DOTS stay dry, and you always have a way to wash your hands! Made with various HoneyBerry Soaps. Just over 1.5 oz of soap in each container. Refill packs coming soon. Purse tin has a screw on lid to keep your DOTS secure!
Lamb- Leg Roast- 1.76-2.00 lbs. Lamb- Leg Roast- 2.01-2.25 lbs. Lamb- Rack- 1.26-1.50 lbs Lamb- Rack- 1.01-1.25 lbs. These are full rib racks from Katahdin lambs, an American breed known for its mild flavor. Carrell Farms' sheep are 100% grassfed and antibiotic free.
Back In Time Farm Bill just let me know that he's getting low on chicken. He won't be able to restock until April. The market currently shows only 9 whole Back In Time chickens in stock! Order soon if you need some!
Cheese Group Buy If you were not able to pick up your cheese order last Tuesday it is in Frige #3
Fry Farm Update- (Repeat) Fry Farm had to put all their produce listings on hold due to freeze damage. I'll let you all know when they are back on the market.
Please consider volunteering during market pick up. I can't run the co-op without your help!
THANKYOU Marie, Diana, Pam, Cindy, Chuck, and Margaret for helping out last Tuesday! We couldn't run the co-op without your support!
The schedule through the end of the year is posted. To sign up click: Vounteer Sign up
No packing is involved just need someone to be there to assist other members. You are welcome to bring your kids as long as they are supervised.
FACEBOOK Many of you have told me that you can't volunteer due to your work/family schedule and I completely understand. You've also asked what else can I do help out the co-op? Here's one way that will really help us out – if you are on Facebook or other social media please consider posting a pic of your co-op goodies! I have a very limited marketing budget and really depend on word of mouth advertising. Please feel free to spread the word about our wonderful market!
Thank you in advance for your support!
