Miami County Locally Grown:  Order today!


Shop here

Two of our beef and pork vendors are both part of the Buehler family. They’ve recently merged their companies and have a new name. Here’s an announcement from them…

Here at Phil Buehler & Matt Buehler Farms and J & S Buehler Family Farm, we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our past and present customers for their support of us, and local food, specifically at Miami County Locally Grown.

We are excited to announce that the wholesale and retail meat portions of our farms are going to join to create a new name and label that we will sell our meats under. Our new name is Full Flavor Meats, LLC.

Some of you may have been noticing some new labels on your orders. There will continue to be a mixture of labels as we cycle out existing inventory. Don’t worry, it is still the same great meat, just a new look.

If you would like to learn more about our farms, you can check out our website at www.fullflavormeats.com and follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Thanks again, and please keep supporting our local businesses.

Champaign, OH:  Into The Mystic


We were born before the wind
Also, younger than the sun…
(Van Morrison)

So, what a lovely market filled with lovely customers who were full of good cheer.

It was great to be back in action, and thank you for all of the kind words, and love.

I’m listening to Van Morrison on my back deck, with a glass of wine, and thought this song was perfect to reopen the market.

XOXO,

Miami County Locally Grown:  More asparagus!


Shop here

The asparagus has been growing really well, so we’ve added ten more half-pound bunches. You might want to grab them though, as they go quickly!

Asparagus is one of those fun and easy vegetables to grow. They are a perennial plant, so they come back year after year. Deer don’t like them, so that isn’t a problem. Maybe a way to dip your toes into gardening?

On that note…

The Garden

A well-kept garden certainly is inspiring (despite the work involved!); it is a central idea in the first chapter of Genesis, and gardens are sources of food and beauty. But one of my favorite authors, Michael Pollan, paints a word picture better than anything I can come up with:

“The garden is a place of many sacraments, an arena – at once as common as any room and as special as a church – where we can go not just to witness but to enact, in a ritual way, our abiding ties to the natural world. Abiding, yet by now badly attenuated, for civilization seems bent on breaking or at least forgetting our connections to the earth. But in the garden the old bonds are preserved, and not merely as symbols. So we eat from the vegetable patch, and, if we’re paying attention, we’re recalled to our dependence on the sun and the rain and the everyday leaf-by-leaf alchemy we call photosynthesis.”

So wrapped up we can be in relationships, livelihoods, and other distractions without number that it is all too easy to forget and neglect our ties to natural surroundings, and that our bodies are part of this world of seasons and weather and all manner of birds and other animals and plants of infinite variety…Do yourself a favor and take a little time to be outside today.

Martin's Farmstand:  Asparagus season now; strawberry season in June


The Farmstand is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am- 6 pm. (Closed Sunday) We are in the main asparagus season now. Asparagus season will last until sometime in mid June. The strawberries are at about 10% bloom now which is normal for this time of the year. The plants look nice and healthy. I expect that the strawberries should be ready for harvest starting about mid June with the season lasting 2-3 weeks as is usual. We had a light frost with temps at 32 degrees yesterday morning. If a strawberry flower is damaged by frost/ freezing the white petals will still look bright but the sunny yellow center of the flower turns black within a few hours or a day. I just was out in the strawberry fields and the flower center are all looking up at me with bright yellow centers. This is wonderful to see they escaped frost damage. The first cucumbers in the greenhouse are almost big enough to pick and there are lots of sizing tomatoes. (still very green) Before you complain about the rain think of us produce farmers. It is so reassuring to hear the rain on the roof and to see the little plants taking ahold and growing. Daniel
