Crocked Row Farms - 08-31-17

Welcome to the High Springs Farmers' Market

CROOKED ROW FARM

Welcome to Crooked Row Farm in Madison, Florida. We are a small family owned and operated farm dedicated to raising and growing food of the highest quality available. We NEVER use chemical wormers, medicated feeds, antibiotics or hormones with our animals. Likewise, we never use herbicides or pesticides with our vegetables. Our farm was started because we saw the need for better, SAFE food, for us, our children and our grandchildren, FOR YOU and YOURS.

Before we started our farm, we toured several farms, meat farms and vegetable farms. One of the vegetable farms was a "certified organic" farm a few hours south of us. I asked the owner why they went to the trouble of getting their certification. It is very costly and the paperwork required boggles the mind. His answer was this: "When people see the USDA certified seal on our banner at the farmers markets they don't ask us questions. Saves me a ton of time". A few minutes later I noticed they were filling a sprayer tank on a tractor and I asked about that. " Oh, we're spraying BT on the sweet corn later today. It's approved by the board". Even the big commercial farmers we know raise an eyebrow over that one. So even the food we were paying top dollar for because we thought it was of better quality had not even come close to our standards.

Mass produced food today is just filler. It has no nutrients unless they are added in processing and it has no flavor unless you marinade it in your favorite herbs and spices for hours on end.

Our food is raised and grown in small batches with as much care and attention as possible. Our animals are rotated to new ground as needed, ration fed, not free fed, and treated humanely, given plenty of room to roam and forage and are happy to live life here on our farm. Give us a try, the difference will amaze you.

With a farm like ours you processor is a relationship and a partnership. You have to be able to trust them. It is IMPERATIVE that I get my animal back. Wayne has explained and let me witness every part of the process and how the animal and its parts are tagged as it moves through their facility. I have every confidence that I am getting my animal and only my animal back on pick up day. The facility is clean and efficient and the customer service is excellent.

Also a proud Nana of 3 and 1 in Heaven. I am proof, when you trust, obey and honor God- HE will give you Abundance of Grace!

Boondox Tropicals - 08-17-17

Welcome to the High Springs Farmers' Market

Open this Thursday- August 17, 2017, 12 PM to 4 PM


BOONDOX TROPICALS
Eric Bjerregaard is the owner/master gardener at Boondox Tropicals. All his products are grown here in Newberry, Florida. Currently, Eric has 8 greenhouses and about 6500 pineapple plants.
It is coming up on the peak season for Boondox Tropicals' delicious pineapples. They are just coming out and will hit their peak production in September. Then they will have them sporadically until July 2018.
Eric grows his pineapples in his greenhouses. Since they are picked fresh and sold immediately, the cores of the pineapple are so tender, you can cut it up and eat it. Unlike the local grocery, where you pay for the pineapple, cut off the outer shell and throw away the core. What a way to get more pineapple for your money. The prices average from $2.00 to $10.00. Comparable to your local grocery. Except, for the taste, which is outstanding.
Don't forget to check out the beautiful ornamental flowers and plants. Perfect for all your landscaping needs. You will also find eggplant, and a variety of peppers at the Boondox Tropicals booth. When in season, Eric also grows some delicious bananas.

Community Information Booths
Our Santa Fe River

We are our Santa Fe River, Inc., an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the advocacy, education and stewardship of our Santa Fe River. Our volunteers work tirelessly to defend the river from water withdrawals, nutrient loading and pollution sources.

We have a dire threat to the river, a proposed phosphate mine that HPSII wants to operate in Bradford and Union County. Our Santa Fe River Inc.(OSFR) is partnering with Citizens Against Phosphate Mining (CAPM) to fight the proposed HPSII phosphate mine which would decimate over 11,000 acres in Bradford and Union Counties straddling the New River which flows into the Santa Fe River. This mining operation threatens the already impaired ecosystem of the rivers, springs and aquifer by the required extraction of millions of gallons of additional water per day from the aquifer and the potential release of toxins and chemicals in recharge areas. "Fight the Mine" donations will help OSFR and CAPM further educate the public about this mining operation by funding mail campaigns, banners, PSA'S and other educational tools, and any legal fees needed along the way. Help us "Fight the Mine" and save our rivers, springs and drinking water from further degradation, and help maintain our property values along the river.

We have created an easy-to-send letter of opposition to the mine on our webpage at www.oursantaferiver.org Please help us and take a moment to sign the letter, letting Bradford County Commissioners know your concerns. You can edit the letter before sending, if you would like to say more. If you can make a donation to help us fight the mine, there is a link on the webpage for that, also. On August 17th, at the Bradford County Courthouse, there is a County Commission meeting from 6:30 - 8:00 pm, and we need to PACK THE HOUSE, and let them know we do NOT want this mine! Please join us if you can!!

Please think about becoming a member of our organization - we need more people to step up and help us save this precious river and its springs. Make a donation, attend our monthly board meetings, help us at events, do as much as you are comfortable with. Follow our online newsletter for events like our annual fundraiser - Riverfest, river cleanups, governmental meetings and more. Follow Our Santa Fe River on Facebook to get even more information and news.
Thank you,
