Chuck, our volunteer is in the hospital


Hi Everyone, just wanted to let you know what’s going on with with one of our members/volunteer/friend Chuck since many of you know and have met him at pick up in Buford over the years. I spoke with him today and he said it was okay for me to share and ask for prayers.

Chuck started having some problems Friday night and Saturday he drove himself to the hospital. They confirmed that he was having a heart attack. He had a heart catheterization yesterday and they put in a stent where he had almost a hundred percent blockage in one artery. He attributes his change in eating habits over the past 3 years to why both are not blocked. He is feeling much better today and the doctor says he’s doing great. I know his positive outlook and faith in God are helping him get through this. He’s in good spirits and want you all to know that he’s gonna miss seeing everyone this week at our first pick up in Suwanee on Wednesday.

Please keep Chuck lifted in your prayers and thoughts for continued healing and speedy recovery!

Blessings,
Nora

Carrell Farms Group Buy this Weekend!


Good Morning! I knew I forgot something…. GROUP BUY THIS WEEKEND CARRELL FARMS
This weekend we’ll be taking orders for pastured water buffalo, and alpaca. They are currently out of lamb. Carrell Farm will deliver this upcoming Thursday. We order every other week so please keep this in mind when ordering. Meats are 100% grassfed and finished. They are produced without GMOs, chemicals, hormones, nor antibiotics of any kind.

Carrell Farms is a family owned, grass-based livestock operation featuring 100% grassfed, chemical-free, USDA processed Asian water buffalo. Seasonally they offer 100% grassfed lamb and other species. They are the first alpaca farm in the Southeastern US and offer alpaca shearing and farm consulting services.

Never had Water Buffalo? Water Buffalo tastes great! It has an honest red meat flavor with no gaminess. There is no need to marinade or over season Carrell Farm’s water buffalo as the flavor is grown right in. No need to drain – any excess fat is highly nutritious! Water Buffalo ground is excellent for burgers, chili, meat loaf, sloppy joes, spaghetti sauce, etc.! Be sure to try Carrell Farm’s famous Buffalo Con Queso recipe http://suwanee.locallygrown.net/recipes/1271 Children and adults alike really love it!

Omega 3 fats have a much lower melting point than Omega 6 fats. Expect grass fed meats to cook in 1/3 less time than contemporary grainfed meat.
