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,

Jodi Cannoli

Welcome to the High Springs Farmers' Market

Open this Thursday- August 3, 2017, 12 PM to 4 PM

CHEF JODY CANNOLI

Who is Jody Cannoli?

There are actually TWO Jody Cannoli's! Jody "Cannoli" Petronella and wife Deb "Cannoli" Petronella. Jody, is the classically trained Chef and sometimes (often, actually) comic foil to wife Deb, who handles a bit of everything in the business, including keeping Jody focused.

New to the Gainesville area, this duo grew up in Central NY; the land of Italian American food and pastries. The call to "mangia" was heeded seriously and often. In Jody's hometown of Utica, NY there was a pastry shop seemingly on every corner, yet most natives fell into one of 2 camps: Traditional Sicilian made with only Ricotta Cheese and fine sugar, and the "New World" made with Ricotta, Mascarpone and assorted fillings and garnishes. Jody grew to appreciate every cannoli he came across and now draws on the nostalgia of his hometown and the refined techniques of his culinary education.

Fast forward through several careers for both the Cannoli-O's, including Jody with his culinary school training and Deb's creative and sales background and the desire to combine and share their talents and passion to focus on one primary product for people to enjoy. Hence; Jody Cannoli is born. Cannoli's make people happy. Making people happy making cannolis makes Jody and Deb happy. Jody is here to stay!

Jody Cannoli launches "officially" in August. Right now they're working mostly at great local Farmers' Markets and regional events and have been booked for food truck events all over the state.

So how do you FIND Jody Cannoli? Check out their social media accounts. It's how they plan on letting fans know when and where to find them and their fabulous cannolis! http://www.facebook.com/jodycannoli/

And finally...what's on the menu?

You'll always find the Originale - a delicious, straight up traditional cannoli, with or without chocolate chips; the Florentine - another traditional but smoother and creamier and Deb's favorite, the Key Lime Cooler. Since the Petronellas are pet lover there are always sugar free pup-noli's too for your fur bambinis!

Every week, there's also a yummy chef's surprise! That could be anything from and expresso cannoli to various fruit flavored cannoli treats.

And what goes better with cannoli than coffee? How about cold brewed NITRO infused coffee? Think coffee that's cold, smooth and mellow pulled from a draft system like your favorite pint of Guinness. Jody and Deb are proud to brew and serve coffee from Bold Bean Roasters in Jacksonville.

So come check us out at the High Springs Farmers' Market this Thursday, August 3, 2017, 12 to 4 PM!

Glades Ridge Goat Dairy - July 13 2017

Welcome to the High Springs Farmers' Market


Open this Thursday- JULY 13, 2017, 12 PM to 4 PM

GLADES RIDGE GOAT DAIRY

Glades Ridge Goat Dairy moved to Central Florida in 2006 with about a dozen dairy goats. In 2009, they started selling their raw goat milk and chevre (traditional goat cheese) at the Alachua County Farmers' Market.

They now offer goat milk yogurt and kefir, flavor and aged cheeses, goat milk fudge, farm fresh eggs from free range, non GMO fed hens, as well as goat meat, pork, beef, and lamb. They love what they do, and they are always open to suggestions for new or different products.

Greg will be representing Glades Ridge at the High Springs Farmers' Market during the summer weeks and hopefully they will continue for the rest of the year.
