Carlton Farms Newsletter

At Carlton Farms, we humanely and organically utilize domestic animals on grass to produce the nutritious food we provide for our community.
Delivery News
Milk and Egg Supply
Spring Egg sale. The hens are working overtime, so we get to share their bountiful production with you. While production is at "Spring" levels, eggs are $5 per dozen. This probably will only last a few weeks, so stock up now.

Milk is still in adequate supply, as the girls have been producing good after our early 2019 calf crop. Plenty of milk available to order, and some extra available at the Mobile Market locations.
Product's of the week.
One form Carlton Farms, and one from our food producing friends. Just a little something that we have been enjoying lately and thought you may like also.

One of our household favorites, and one of many products from Atlanta's own Beautiful Briny Sea. A blend of smoked paprika, garlic, rosemary, celery seed and pure ocean salt that can gussy up just about any dish. Seriously, put it on anything -- it’s magic.
Ingredients: Pure Ocean Salt with Smoked Paprika, Rosemary, Garlic

Finding a Private delivery group:
Our private delivery group map keeps growing. Check out the map to see which would work for you. This is a hybrid between home delivery and pick-up locations. It makes delivery more efficient for us because we can drop several orders at one location. It also make the cost of delivery less for the customer for the same reason. One comment we heard often last week about the Private Group deliveries was: I'd be glad to host or be a part of a private group, but I don't know how to find others in my area. Because of privacy issues we cant just share the address of private delivery hosts. However, we will be posting a map here each week of locations where we have a private drop established, or where there are people interested. If one of those locations will work for you then let us know. We will send your info to the host and y'all can take it from there. We will probably hone this system over time, but my hope is that it will serve as a way to create more of a community around our local food system. I think we could all benefit form a support network of people in our communities that think and eat the way we do.

On the Farm

This is the scene in my dining room at the moment. A couple hundred Yukon Gold Potatoes Budding (chitting is the proper term) well, and about to go into the ground. Meanwhile 200 baby tomato plants are also enjoying the sunlight through the window. There's just something about springtime that makes me happy. I think this is it. All the new life.

Also, In case you didn't know. We archive all of my "On the Farm" articles in blog form. You can find those on our website. Click here to read our Blog, "Shooting the Bull".
