It's time to say goodbye to 2013 and welcome in 2014!
2013 has been a great year for the Bluegrass Farmers' Market. We welcomed quite a few new members including...Gilkison Farm, My Ole Kentucky Soap, Shallow Creek Farm, JP Foods, LLC, Reece Garden and On Tapp Dairy. They were all great additions to our market.
We also had some family additions! Robin and Randy became grandparents and Josh became an uncle when the folks at Hughes Farm welcomed Eliza to the family. Heck, the proud grandparents even traveled to New Zealand to welcome their granddaughter to the family. John and Joy Shirk of Rejoicing Acres became the proud parents of a new baby boy named Daniel. Congratulations to both families.
A first for the BGFM came in 2013 when some displaced musicians were looking for a new place to call home each Saturday. Roger and Clay, The Two Old Troubadors, found us! Each Saturday they delighted us with their music.
Unfortunately we also lost a very dear market friend in Barbara Gardener. Barbara has been a market supporter for many years. She was an avid gardener and a member of the Master Gardener Program. While we will miss her smiling face, we're sure she is beautifying the heavens above.
Our market members wish everyone a safe, happy and healthy 2014! Happy New Year from our farms to your homes.
See ya in 102 days...the 2014 Bluegrass Farmers' Market opens April 12, 2014!
