While some people view Memorial Day as the “unofficial” start of summer, others recognize the true meaning of this national holiday. Memorial Day is the holiday that takes place annually on the last Monday in May, and is a dedicated day for honoring U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces. More than 1.3 million Americans paid the ultimate sacrifice for their nation. Let us pause to remember them.

Thank you,

Beverly

The 1st Annual Basic Agriculture Commodities Expo was held at Pike County 9th Grade Academy. Students were the teachers that evening as the community came out to learn about Georgia’s agriculture commodities in hands-on, fun, and interactive ways. Teams of young people were stationed throughout the school’s cafeteria, and each group shared facts and figures about one of our state’s commodities as attendees visited their tables.

According to 2020 data from The Center for Agribusiness & Economic Development at the University of Georgia, these are the Top 10 Georgia Commodities, in order of value:
p=. Broilers – $3 billion
Cotton – $727.8 million
Peanuts – $678 million
Beef – $663.4 million
Timber – $649.8 million
Greenhouse – $566.2 million
Corn – $358.1 million
Blueberries – $304.2 million
Dairy – $297 million
Hay – $291.2 million

Here are some pictures of our young people in action.

Many of the students who presented at the Expo are active in the local FFA and 4-H programs. To these talented and eager young people, I say keep up the good work! The world needs farmers like you.

To our customers, thank you for supporting Georgia Grown, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

New farmers and producers are joining our market regularly. Please get to know them and their products. We encourage our customers to browse ALL the offerings. While we are sort of “in between” seasons for the next couple of weeks, there are still many products from which to choose. Cold crops such as spinach, broccoli, asparagus, chard, lettuces, and kale are still producing.
Eggs, dairy, meats, baked goods, live plants, micro greens and sprouts, honey, olive oil, bath and beauty products, and farm crafts are among the many items available through The Wednesday Market this week.

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. May you all have a glorious Easter, and we’ll see you at the Market.

Thanks,

It’s time to get outside and enjoy this mild, sunny weather! What a welcome relief from the storms we had in the last few days. I wish we were at The Masters golf tournament today. The azaleas are in full bloom and the television screen doesn’t do them justice. Just once I’d like to go and see them in person.

Thank you for supporting Georgia Grown. We’ll see you at the Market this week.

Thanks,

Beverly
