On Farm Market reopens soon!

Our On Farm Market will re-open on Wednesday, April 3rd. We’re open every Wednesday morning 9- 12 April through mid December. This year we’ll also be open at the farm the first Saturday morning of each month, April  through December, 9 am – 12 pm. We will not attend the Uptown Market in Columbus, so we hope you Columbus folks can make it up to Pine Mountain to shop with us here some Wednesdays or Saturdays!

Columbus Botanical Garden Plant Sale

We’ll also be selling veggie, herb and flower transplants at the Columbus Botanical Garden plant sale April 12th and 13th.

Pig has started joining us at the farm, daily. It only takes 20 minutes to get him from our house to the farm in the stroller, as opposed to the 2 minute walk it used to be.

The 2019 Crew at lunch on a chilly day last week. We are thrilled to have part time workers Jenn and Wendi come back this season. Zane and Shana are the new full time apprentices, both are from suburbs north of Atlanta. These four have helped get 1000s of spring transplants in the ground, such as onions, chard and broccoli.

Hope to see y’all here soon!

Presidents Day Market, Monday Feb. 18th.

We’ll be open MONDAY morning, 02/18/19 from 9-12 with lots of fresh veggies and other local foods to help you refill your pantries.  The forecast is warm and cloudy so it should be a great day for buying groceries outside! Hope to see you here!

This will be our last winter market. We will resume our weekly Wednesday morning market schedule in April (Starting April 3rd, open every Wednesday morning April- mid December).

CSA memberships are open to new members!

We’ve let our previous members secure their share, and now we are opening up membership to new members. The CSA is a great way to hold yourself accountable to having fresh produce in your house each week.  If you are out of town a good bit or would just rather pick out what you want rather than receive a share that we put together, shopping at our On Farm Market is a good option.

This year in addition to being open on Wednesday mornings, we’ll also be open the first Saturday morning of each month April- December! We’ve decided to open here one Saturday each month instead of attending the weekly downtown Columbus Market. Sales there have been inconsistent for us in recent years.  We’re sorry to disappoint our long time customers in Columbus! We hope you can make it up to Pine Mountain on the first Saturday of each month, or Wednesday mornings, for our produce plus the many other locally produced foods we stock.

If you’d like to join the CSA, all the information can be found here: Brochure for Spring +Summer 2019

Simply fill out the member agreement that’s found in the brochure and mail that along with your payment to us, or bring to the market tomorrow! If you’d like to pay by bank transfer online, we can send you a quickbooks invoice. Email us at jennyjackfarm@gmail.com if you’d like that option.

Enjoying the Merry Go Round with Tulsi before Christmas. This is a tradition in Valley, Alabama, just over the state line where Jenny’s dad grew up. He enjoyed going to this same carousel at Christmas time when he was a boy.
