Welcome Members!

Welcome to our Farm Share and the first pick-up of the season. 

We are excited that you will be participating in this year's Farm Share program as we get ready for our most popular season in GG history. Each year, our program looks to expand the Global Growers community and to promote farmer equity and transparency. Additionally, we think it is important to highlight that every piece of produce you see in your basket this week has been hand grown and picked by the amazing farmers we partner with. Each farmer receives 75% of the sale of vegetables included in each basket. Global Growers stands firmly behind  this percentage and hopes to initiate change in other Farm Share subscriptions. We thank you for your participation and support as we work to change the farming systems and bridge the gap between farmer equity and refugee resettlement.  
 

Your pick-up times are set, your vegetables are ready to be harvested, and the Global Growers Farm Share 2018 is off and running so bring your bags and lets get eating! Don't forget to check out our online store if you want to add anything new to your share this week. All scheduling changes and additions must be made by, Saturday, 03/31 at 5pm. If you have any questions or concerns please lettuce know (sorry couldn't help the pun) and contact sales@globalgrowers.org

Farmer Story

weloveatl 10001.jpg

Than Ceu is one of six partner farmers at Bamboo Creek Farm. He began farming with Global Growers in 2012 as a part of GG's first cohort of farmers to pioneer our Farmer Training Program at Bamboo Creek Farm. Originally from Chin country in Burma, Than came to Atlanta as a refugee in 2008.  He began farming on one of GG's smallest 1/8-acre plots in April 2012. Than has impressive agricultural skills and a mighty work ethic, he would often be at the farm at sunrise following his 2nd shift job at the poultry processing plant. As of now, Than is the largest landholder at Bamboo Creek Farm, cultivating nearly 1-acre of land. He is also the first partner farmer to embark on farming as his full-time job.

Partner Product: Bee Wild Honey

Spring is finally here, which is amazing, but not if you have allergies!! Bee Wild, Wildflower Raw Honey is really helpful if you have allergies, eating a teaspoon a day can help build your immune system.  

In the Mountains of North Georgia, from April until June, Bee Wild's bees travel 2-3 miles from their hives to gather the nectars of blackberry, tulip poplar, and hundreds of other flowers.  Enjoy this treat as a sweetener in tea, with a robust cheese such as goat cheese, or as a glaze on chicken or salmon.

Nothing is better and easier to make and eat in the middle of the week then a quinoa salad. This incredible meal is a great way to get an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and proteins in one dish, with some amazing flavors!

Storage Tips- Carrots 

Carrots that are stored without their tops can last in your refrigerator for about two weeks.  Leaving the tops on your carrots will suck the nutrients out of the carrots more quickly and make them go limp.  Use your carrot tops to add even more deliciousness to your salads.
