And the Buehler family will also be on vacation from the Market for one week only, starting next Tuesday… That includes their pork, beef, and Landon’s famous eggs!!

New Winner, Organic Eggs, and More!!


Congratulations to our next Refer A Friend program Winner, and recipient of a $10 Virtual Market gift certificate…

Jamie VanTilburgh!

For our new customers, here’s how it works… When you refer someone new to our Market, we’ll ask them at pickup how they heard about Miami County Locally Grown!

Then when they drop your name, you are entered in our monthly drawing for a $10 Virtual Market gift certificate! Good on any purchase, and doesn’t expire!

So keep those referrals coming, and thanks for helping spread the word!

Plus, more big news this week -

Bair Trax Dairy again has Pastured Eggs from their organically fed chickens to offer! Yay :-)

And Doc Allen of Troy’s beloved Pumpkin Patch let us know tonight he hopes to pull Fresh Spring HONEY soon! How deliciously exciting!

Lastly, Congrats to the lucky customers who snatched the extra Asparagus and Lettuce at pickup tonight! There’ll be extra goodies and produce up for grabs at pickup each week!

Thank you for your continued support, and Happy Shopping!

Last chance to order for Memorial Day!


With grilling options and convenient choices to please a crowd, we’ve got your local beef, pork and chicken! All kinds of patties, brats, wings (and if you ask Phil Buehler, you can’t go wrong grilling bacon and pork chops!)

Plus meat specials and samplers where you’ll save with bulk options!

And the freshest local veggies around, including those indispensable salad greens are calling you to make a burger!

We’re open til 8pm tonight :-)

What a day! Congratulations are certainly in order!

Yesterday morning Ryan and Bree Leach of Live Simply Live Richly Farm welcomed Mila Jo, their 3rd child, into the world – incredibly, just 3 hours after Lee and I were Blessed with our 5th, Anna Rose! Good thing for the midwife our End of the Road Farm is only 20 minutes from the Leach family! ;-).

Everyone is doing well, and how wonderful to see their 2 other children and our other 4 enthralled with the new additions! Don’t you just love the newness of Spring?!

What will you find this week!!??


I don’t know how you did it, but somehow all of you incredible customers made tonight, with our biggest sales of the year, the easiest pickup night as well!

Thanks to everyone not only for shopping and supporting fresh, local food, but also for trickling in to pickup, with nicely spaced apart arrivals on a night when I sure needed there not to be a line out the door! ;-)

Have I ever mentioned how much I love this Market? THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

You know what we need?


Maybe you know how exciting it can be to come across a real treasure at a flea market or yard sale. I have the fondest memories of scouring the vendor tables at the stock yards with my grandma in their tiny Michigan farming town.

When she died last year I was heartbroken. And it was more difficult than it should have been to visit the Yards later that summer, knowing she’d never go with me again.

But lo and behold did I find a treasure of which she would have approved – a collection of glass milk bottles, which represented our little homesteading family perfectly, both because of the sizes (2 quarts for my husband and I, and 4 pints for our 4 children) and because the name of the old dairy family happened to be our last name as well!

Now, my in-laws have always been very sweet about asking if there’s something in particular we need for a Christmas or birthday present. So when happily we found I was pregnant with our 5th child, we knew just how to break the news to them!

When they asked their usual “So think about what you need for Christmas, and let us know”, we showed them the milk bottles lined up so smartly on the shelf, with a very conspicuous gap at the end, and told them we had everything we needed except a 5th pint… and it was immediately evident by their dumbfounded stares they caught on right away :-)

And we haven’t found our newest addition’s bottle yet, but we’ll keep on looking, and are thankful little Anna Rose (FINALLY) arrived this week, as healthy and vocal as the rest of the clan (and just in time for a very tired Daddy to go finish the chores and bring in the morning’s milk)!

Knowing in her matter-of-fact way, Grandma would say “Well I like babies, I had 10 you know”, she was always the first person we told when we’d find out we were having another, and I do love looking up at those bottles, sure of how happy she’d be as our little family and our farm dream continues to grow.
