Need another reason to KNOW YOUR FARMER?!.....


Our newest meat vendors couldn’t have joined the market at a more ironic time… I just read of a USDA recall for over 131,00lbs of chicken patties, as well as 1,000’s more pounds of beef, poultry, sausage and other meats!!

Is your food clean and safe? How far does travel to reach your fridge, freezer, or table?

If you’re looking for an eye-opening read, take a look at any of the recent USDA recalls… it made me not only sick to my stomach, but excited to place a market order.

The meats offered by our wonderful vendors are not only home grown, but locally processed… King’s Poultry is one of only two USDA inspected poultry processors in all of Ohio, and local fully inspected butcher shops used by our vendors, such as Butcher Block and Smokehouse, and Copey’s Butcher Shop, mean the meat is grown and processed by your neighbors.

Where else can you shop with confidence knowing none of the meats or produce offered had to travel 1,000 miles or even 100 miles, before reaching Miami County, Ohio? We remain committed to providing the freshness and quality that is attainable from within your own community – and I’m grateful we have so many local meat producers currently on the market, with more coming in the near future!

We're open for orders, with a new featured vendor!!


Tonight’s featured vendor?
Kenny and Connie Adams, who share all the following information about their business!!

“Adams Greenhouse and Produce, located just east of Covington, is a greenhouse and food store that offers locally grown and organic fruits, vegetables, large supply of grass fed meats and bulk organic baking products, including nuts, oatmeal, flour and salts.

The greenhouse was opened in 2008, by Kenny and Connie Adams and has expanded drastically to carrying organic and natural foods and more.

They are also co-leader for a local Weston A. Price Chapter, and hold monthly meetings the first Tuesday of the month. Mr. Price was a dentist that traveled and observed different cultures to see who had the best teeth, best bone structure and best overall health and much more. He discovered that they all ate animals meats, fruits and vegetables, limited seeds, nuts and grains and also had good fats in their diet. Our meetings consist of different speakers and we do a lot of hands on education.

In the spring, we start offering all the garden plants, organic, heirloom and non-gmo seeds, bedding flowers and hanging baskets and fresh herb plants. We do a large variety of vegetable plants, including over 12,000 tomato plants, broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, swiss chards, okra, collards and much more.

After spring planting, we then go into the produce season with all kinds, mostly locally grown. We also have organic fish fertilizer, earthworm castings and potting soils. The majority of our produce is organically grown.

We offer honey from our own behives, locally produced maple syrup, our own fresh pasture eggs. Our chickens are raised with non-gmo, soy free supplemented feed for better tasting eggs. We also offer our own grass fed broiler, turkeys, pork, lamb, goat. Our beef is raised locally on grass also.

In the spring Adams Greenhouse offers gardening classes and during the fall they will be offering an indoor Farmer’s Market held inside the heated greenhouse, with several vendors on hand. The store also offers custom ordered grass fed turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Following up with Christmas trees and greenery during Christmas season.

If you have any questions on any of our offerings or meetings just give us a call at 937-416-5533 or visit our webpage: www.adamsgreenhouse.com and like us on Facebook: adamsgreenhouse.
You can also stay in touch by texting: adamsgreenhouse to 22828 and then follow the prompt by submitting your email address and that will put you on our email list."
