Look for their items on the market starting 11/16
Order Cheese this weekend!
All their cheeses will be listed this weekend. So if you missed it a couple of weeks ago you can still get their amazing cheese. I will submit our order on Monday morning but I'm not sure if it will ship in time for Thanksgiving. This is a prepaid pre-order and payment is expected this Wednesday.
Chicken is back on the market! Back in Time is officially CNG!
What does CNG mean?The Certified Naturally Grown Livestock Standards are based on the National Organic Program standards with a few significant modifications, as noted below.
We clarified and strengthened the standards for living conditions and access to pasture. The organic rules were worded in such a way that agribusiness growers got away with their animals never actually going outside.
Another difference is in feed requirements. The feed must be grown according to CNG standards - without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or GMO seeds - but it does not have to be certified. When you can find a local source that's growing according to these standards and will affirm their practices in a signed declaration, we think you should have the option to use that local source.
Beet Kvass (Golden) is ON SALE!
If you've been wanting to try this amazing product, now is the time!
PLEASE HELP! Volunteers Needed at pick up!
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! We need 2 volunteers this Wed, 11/14
Please consider volunteering during market pick up. I can’t run the market without your help! Shifts are 1 hour long and go by really fast. It's a great opportunity to meet fellow members!
Thank you Lauren (with Evie & Liam), Michele, Veverly, and Erika for volunteering last Wednesday! We couldn't have the co-op without our amazing volunteers!!
No packing is involved just need someone to be there to assist other members. You are welcome to bring your kids as long as they are supervised.
Zelle - New Payment Option with no fees
I’m offering a new payment option – Zelle! There is no fee to you or me to use this option. You may use starting this week!
You will need a mobile phone to use this payment method.
How to use:
Find Zelle in the mobile banking app of your bank or credit union. If you already have your banking app on your phone, there’s no download necessary. If your bank or credit union doesn’t offer Zelle yet, just download the Zelle app to get started.
Once you enroll, you can send money using my email address email@example.com or my mobile number 404-934-4644 to pay for your order. It’s super easy and fast – just enter the amount you want to send.
I prefer we do this like PayPal and send your money before pick up on Wednesday. Best to initiate payment right after you order so you don’t forget.
Starting Nov 5th, this will replace the Dwolla payment option. You may still use Dwolla until then if you would like.

Hoodies for the Homeless - Bring to pick up next week
My son will be having a Hoodies for the Homeless clothing drive. More details are in his letter below:
Hi, my name is Corey. I’m Mrs. Nora’s son. Last year for Thanksgiving we volunteered for Hosea Feeds the Hungry and helped with the clothing. We heard many times “are there any hoodies?”. We ran out quick. Someone has to take responsibility. I’m taking up the task with Hoodies for the Homeless. You can drop off any Wednesday pick up day between now and 11/21 (Wed before Thanksgiving). There will be a designated spot inside the pick up area where hoodies can be dropped off.
My hope is that nobody is cold this Thanksgiving. So if you could drop off any hoodies – Large, medium, or small, used or new that would be great.
If you have any questions just let me know. This is not a formal charity, just something he wants to do to help others. We’ll collect the hoodies and deliver Thanksgiving Day to Hosea Helps in Atlanta.
Thank you to those that already dropped off yesterday! He was so happy to collect 2 bags full!
Thank you notes to a farmer or vendor
