We’ll cut to the chase so you don’t have to read a bunch of fluff. Here we go: What it is: The “Always Open” or “24/7” feature is a software improvement that allows us to continue offering items over the weekend. In the past, orders would open on Monday’s and close on Friday’s. When they’d close we would call in our orders with our distributor and local vendors. So What’s Changed, Other Than The Obvious?: We’re still placing our distributor orders on Friday, so the distributor-listed produce you see on the site over the weekend is what we like to […]

If you’re one of those, and you’re looking forward to that delicious local cheese, local yogurt, local produce, local oil, local meat, local eggs, milk and whatnot, this is just a reminder to finish up the checkout process before the order closes. We’ve missed some cut-off times, and we know how crappy that can be, so we hope this reminder is of help to some of y’all busy bees! Also we have […]

Hello D.R.O members! This week we are featuring a very special vendor that offers organic and amazingly nutritious meats .  Marview Farms, located in Arabi, GA, offers a variety of grass-fed meats such as, sheep, goat, pork, and beef.  Marview Farms have been actively supplying neighboring communities with high quality, organic meats since 2013. Founder, Fernando Mendez Jr, uses a method of rotational grazing to raise his herd in a hormone and antibiotic free farm.  Animals are raised  free-range and without immune altering vaccinations, steroids, and insecticides.  These methods have proven to produce happier and healthier animals. We here at Dirt Road Organics are proud to be […]

If you’re not making your own mozzarella, you’re missing out. It’s super easy, and doesn’t take long at all! Taste the difference and take a look at G.G. Farms milk on the order site ( store.dirtroadorganics.com ) . For a quick step-by-step, watch this video! We don’t currently offer rennet on the online store, but we will be VERY soon. A quick Amazon search finds rennet that you can order right now (see here or here) AND have it before your milk arrives next week. With our friends over at the Hairy Farmpit farm offering their dough again, we couldn’t wait […]

In an alternate universe, an aspiring young author goes to his magazine editor for advice on a story he’s written. The editor says, “This won’t do. This is too preposterous, even for a science fiction magazine. Science fiction has to be, at the core, believable. No rational person would believe that there existed a society in which people did not know where their food came from. You’re asking us to believe in a society where people eat over-prepared, chemical-laden, pre-packaged food hauled over long distances – instead of locally grown, in-season food, fresh from the soil.” This is the science […]

Cured Egg Yolks . . . yeah, they’re a thing. They’re a thing top chef’s are using in their restaurants to add rich complexity and flavor to things you’d never imagine. Now you can too . . . and why not? It’s easy! Grate them over pasta, thicken a homemade salad dressing, and most interesting to Cory and I . . . use them like a hard cheese. You heard that right, from what we’re hearing from our friend’s over at Leite’s Culinaria, they’re an incredible substitute for Parmesan! This “substitute for parmesan” thing was so intriguing to us, we’re […]

So we’ve offered Canewater Farms amazing corn products for a while now. You’re probably familiar with their awesome grits, their polenta, their corn meal or flour by now (sidenote: their fish fry is killer, too!) What we haven’t been able to offer with regularity is their produce . . . not because we haven’t wanted to, but because logistically getting up to Darien has been tough with most of our other member farms being situated in South central Georgia. I’m going to let the pictures do the talking here, but I want to thank you guys and gals first. What’s […]

< ![CDATA[Our favorite local honey folks over at Bruce's Honey Shack were kind enough to bless us with a lot of bee pollen yesterday. If you're not familiar with the benefits of adding some straight up bee pollen to your daily routine, you should definitely keep reading. Especially if you're buying multi-vitamins on the regular! Bee pollen benefits anyone who consumes it. As an alkaline food, bee pollen benefits and balances the overall PH of your body. People agree that the bee pollen nutritional profile is one of the most complete in the world. I use it as an alternative […]
