We will have an on-farm goat auction/sale on May 29th from 8:00-10:00am. We need to decrease our Nubian/Boer mix herd so we can increase our Saanen herd. We are an Animal Welfare Approved farm and our goats are on a rotational grazing/FAMACHA "deworming" program. We have at least 4 does between the ages of 1 and 3 years old (3 are breeding age), we have several wethers that would make great pets (starting at $25.00), and we have a beautiful 3 year old proven 50/50 (Nubian/Boer) buck going for $100.00.
We are also operating our On-Farm stand during this time until 7:00pm. We have plenty of Amish Deer Tongue lettuce (Ark of Taste/Slow Food), Romaine (Freckles) and Looseleaf (Prizehead) lettuce available. We also have radishes, sage, chives and mint. We have potted Flame Azalea, Black Cohosh, Sweet Shrub and tomato plants (Yellow Israel and Sunbrite). We also have some Native-American and Mountain crafts.
See our listing for directions and/or give us a call or e-mail.
Hope to see you there!!

Let's all take one day at least to honor and reverance our Earth.
As farmers, we know we have to show the Earth respect!
Try to do one kind act FOR our earth...maybe we could take one day to actually see how much we waste and throw away and take the rest of our days putting that right. We have become a disposable world. Years ago people would "hoard' or save back items they could use later...so as to be saving. But anymore "keeping" things until it's needed has become a terrible thing to do. Well, I believe, waste is a terrible thing...and it's showing in our Earth, our creatures and most of all our people.
Wishing everyone wellness!

Vendors had leeks, onions, pepper, salad mix greens, herbs (and herb teas as well!), LOTS of baked items, pumpkins, potatoes (irish and sweet), eggs, cheese, lots of crafts showing up now! We had corn husk dolls, sorghum and broom corn seed heads.

Last weeks' market showed a sign of fall. Root crops such as irish potatoes, sweet potatoes and turnips were at the market. We had pumpkins...the Sugar Pie pumpkins are in and they make wonderful pies. The roasted seeds are delicious too! We'll have the Snack Jacks' for next Wednesdays' market. The Jerusalem Artichokes are looking good too.

Today, at the market, the vendors opened a little early in order for people out for lunch to be able to visit the market in one trip. Some of us were there between 1:00-1:30 p.m and stayed open until 5:30 p.m.
