March 14th Market

Sorry Folks there will not be a market this week as I will be out of town, at a Farmers Market Conference. I will open the market again for orders the following week.

Thank you for your understanding.

Finally, Some Sun Shine

Good Afternoon Friends and Neighbors,

Finally we have some sunshine and a little warmth. I see signs of spring, again. Animals having kids, grass growing and farmers getting things ready for planting.

We still have a few die hard farmers that grown things year round, have meat available year round, and some homemade craft items year round.

Why not take a look around and place your order today.

Thanks and have a great week.

Stay Warm and Cozy !

Hello Friends,

Wish I could follow my own advice, but need to prepare goat, chickens and dogs warm shelter, hay, and food for this really, really cold weather. Not to mention that our furnace is on the fritz, so yet another problem on the farm to take care of. It is always something when you have a farm.

On the bright side, we got another Intern, Cal, from the really cold state of Michigan. He arrived, finally, after Greyhound left him setting for hours, at around 3:30 AM on Monday morning.

If you are out and about, you are welcome to come by our farm “The Ole Farm House” and met Cal, and even throw a few bales of hay if you wish…lol.

Market News: Vendors are eager to take your orders. So place it now.
Please also go to our web site @ and make a donation to help us bring you educational seminars, music, and more vendors when the seasonal market opens.

Thank you for your help and support.

This is a short blog, Market is opened.

See Attached list of items avaiable.

Sorry for not being more news worthy today, but dealing with the loss of my father last evening.


So Sorry !

Whoops, the thought of snow scared me so bad, I forgot to open the market last night. Sorry about that.

We are now open for orders.

You still have until Thursday Evening, @ 3 pm to place your orders.


Beautiful !

What a Beautiful Day. In the middle of January !

Hope you are all taking advantage of the abundant sunshine, and enjoying working outdoors.

All our vendors are preparing for the season, deciding what crops to plant this year, and getting fields ready for that crop.

Are there any produce, that you haven’t found at the market that you would like to be able to purchase there? Let me know and I will forward your suggestions to our farmers, and maybe one of them will be able to add that to their crops for this year. If you have any suggestions for anything you would like to see at the market, please let us know.

In the meantime, take advantage of what they do have available, and shop away.

Have a GREAT DAY !
