Yes, we will be at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market on Saturday!

Poor “Chuck” decided that he had other plans for us last Saturday and we missed the market. We actually spent most of the day on the side of Rt. 27 trying to figure out why he kept spitting a main belt out each time we started him up! Believe me, we would much rather have been at the market especially since we were loaded down with freshly harvested lettuce, herbs and a bunch of Herb'n Buns! Hey, the folks that stopped to help us ate good that night! Lol


So, a full day later, we think “Chuck” is once again in full service. We drove him into the big city of Lancaster last night so that we could take our GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) class and I'm happy to say we both passed with flying colors! But, I don't think anyone has ever failed. HaHa! It just means that Drew and I are both certified GAP and qualified to hand out samples at the market. Poor Drew, my brain started working on the way home as I thought of things we could sample using what was available at the market. Honestly, I think he was looking for a big rock to hide under...sorry Drew...part of the market experience!


We've got some more good news. Herb'n Renewal is now back at the Wood Shack in Bryantsville! It's been awhile since we have had our seasoning there and it's nice to be back. If you've never been to the Wood Shack, this weekend is a perfect time to start. They are having a “Picnic On The Porch” to celebrate Memorial Day and you'll find 20%-70% off throughout the whole place. It's a country decor lovers dream come true! Country crafts, florals, quilts, candles, gifts and of course herb seasoning! They've been in business at the same location for 22 years so “the Shack” is there to stay! If you happen to be looking for a great place to visit this weekend, you can find them at the junction of Rt.27 and Rt. 152...it's only about a 30 minute drive from Lexington. And, they'll have free food and drinks on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10 until 6!


One last thing before I head to the kitchen to bake...please take a moment out of your Memorial Day celebrations to remember why we even have Memorial Day. We has so much to be thankful for because of the men and women who have given their lives for our country. We salute you and your families. Don't forget to fly your flag in their honor! We'll be flying ours at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market this Saturday from 9 until 2. Our flag always waves in your honor on the farm!



 
 

Yippee, the Bluegrass Farmers' Market is open!

We're so excited to be back at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market after a very long winter!


We've been so busy weeding, clearing out beds and planting this spring. It's a good kinda tired though. Then all of a sudden it was time for Drew to head to the kitchen and start blending and Karin had to make soap. We needed to get ready for the market opening and somehow we let time fly by so it's been a very busy week at our farm. Now we are really tired! But, everything is done and ready for Saturday's market. All we have to do is load “Chuck” up and head towards to Lexington.


We've had numerous phone calls asking where to buy or blends and rubs and it was so nice to be able to say “we're back at the market!” We can't wait to see our customers and maybe even get to meet some new folks. Hope to see you all on Saturday at ...

We're Ready To Get Back To The Market!

The opening date for the Bluegrass Farmers' Market has been set and it's April 17th! It feels so far away with all of the snow on the ground but it really isn't! Yippee, we're ready to get back to the market! And, yes, I did say “we're” that means that both of us will be there this year. Guess I'll be doing the selling and Drew will be manning the grill, kettle, skillet or whatever he happens to be using to create goodies using our seasoning blends and local produce from the market. Have to admit that it will be great having him by my side again...it was kinda lonely without him last year.


Do you remember that little spurt of warmth and sunshine we had the other day? Well, it made think gardening and how much we waste our garden beds each year. Why not utilize them to grow something while I wait for the real summer heat and our basil and tomato plants. So, I went catalog shopping and looked for something that we could grow in the cool spring. Guess what we'll (hopefully) be bringing to the market this spring? Oriental cabbages!!! Yup, I ordered seeds for baby bok choy and pak choy varieties. I know that we love using them at home so why not grow them ourselves and then sell them at the market. With two ounces worth of luck we'll have enough for Drew to even use them to cook with at the market. Wish us luck in our growing endeavor cause that means you get to enjoy tasty samples! :)


Remember to mark your calendars so that you can be sure to join us on opening day of Lexington's only 100% homegrown/produced farmers market...the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!
