Happy New Year!
With the New Year we've made some seasonal changes and adjusted our hours.
Our Farm Market: During these shorter, colder days in the beginning of the year most of the crops grow very slowly. Due to this, we have closed the market for the month of January and most of February. We will RE-OPEN as the days get longer and warmer and many of the plants reach a growth stage that allows us to harvest.
The ICI: Starting this week (Jan. 10th) we will be back at The International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach at Market Common! This market is on Thursdays from 1:00 - 6:00. We have harvested some Shiitake Mushrooms that showed up during this recent mild weather we've had. The Micro-greens in the greenhouse are ready to harvest, as well as some of the cool season Turnips, Mustard, and Tender Greens.
In the Field: We have baby beets, baby radishes, little spinach plants, and tiny turnips growing in some covered beds in the field. The cover protects them and allows them to grow a little more quickly than otherwise this time of year. We also have lettuce plants and onions in the field that we're looking forward to harvesting once they grow big enough.
In the Greenhouse: In addition to the Micro-greens we've been growing in the greenhouse, there are more beets, kale, chard, and onions growing in trays until they are big enough to go out to the field.
It's hard to believe that Christmas is next week! Whether you're preparing those favorite seasonal dishes or trying out some new recipes we have local produce and products to help. Our Farm Market has Indigo Farm's Own fresh greens, turnips and farm-pressed apple cider. We even harvested some shiitake mushrooms this week! The collards and sweet potatoes are locally grown. The pecans, cornmeal, grits and honey are from SC while the mountain grown apples, molasses and apple butter are from NC,
The Farm Market will be OPEN this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 - 4:00. This is the final week of our 2018 season! Our Farm Market will RE-OPEN in 2019 as the days start getting longer. This allows many of our winter crops some time to grow.
Merry Christmas Y'all!
PS we'll be back at the International Culinary Institute of Myrtle Beach at Market Common in January!
We've added new items just in time for Christmas! Stop in our Farm Market and pick up some Sweet Soulshine or Angry Cukes pickles made by the Doux South company in Georgia. From the Geechie Boy Mill in SC we've got Carolina Gold Rice, White Cornmeal, White Grits and Yellow Grits.
During December our Farm Market is OPEN on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10:00 - 4:00. Our fresh Indigo Farms Mustard Greens, Turnip Greens, Arugula and tender greens are delicious! The locally grown Collards are beautiful too. Don't forget about our SC Pecans, both shelled or unshelled and our SC Grown Sweet Potatoes! We still have our Indigo Farms made Apple Cider too.
For our gift baskets we have a variety of NC, SC, and GA made products including Sorghum Cane Molasses, Jams/Preserves, and Foothills Sugar Cured country ham. Also Organic Maple Syrup from Vermont, Honey, Fruitcake, and other sweet treats. You can also add any of our produce to make a unique gift sure to delight!
Our Farm Market hours have changed for December. We are now open from 10:00 - 4:00. Starting on Wednesday the 5th we will be open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
Our greens are still beautiful. The mushrooms have been growing quite a bit lately and the local collards are so tasty!
