Local and homegrown are always winners but the Bluegrass Farmers' Market has the blue ribbons to prove it! Two of our member farmers scored big at the Kentucky State Fair. The competition is fierce but they still managed to bring home the coveted blue ribbons!
We're very proud to announce that Keith Green of Honey Dew Apiary won six blue ribbons with his fabulous honey. Way to go Keith! We knew that your honey was the very best around but you sure made us extra proud of you with your entries at the Kentucky State Fair.
Kirby Overman of Overman's Bluegrasss Fruits & Vegetables also scored big in the ribbon department! This man can grow veggies and his showing at the Kentucky State Fair sure showed it. So far he has won ribbons for his eggplant, Halloween pumpkins, large cushaw, pie pumpkins, striped cushaw, sweet banana peppers, beets and green beans! I told you that the Overman's know how to grow and their blue ribbons show it! He wanted me to let you know that he still has the opportunity to win in the senior division. Gotta love that, an old guy growing award winning veggies!
The members of the Bluegrass Farmers' Market take great pride in what they grow, raise, bake and make and it sure shows when you have folks that win at the Kentucky State Fair! We congratulate them and say that we are darn proud to have them as friends and fellow farmers at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!!!
WTG you two! Thumbs up for both of you.
P.S. Wish I had the brains to remember to bring the camera so I could have taken a picture of our winners. I'll do it next week at the market. Lol
Oh, one more thing...we do have farm fresh eggs available!!!! Just thought I would add that little comment seen as how America seems too be going through a “bad egg” thing. :(
Once again...local is always better and apparently safer!!!!
