Jack in the Lantern

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Tuesday October 22, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

Counting Down at the Bluegrass Farmers' Market!

Blog: Bluegrass Farmers Market   -   Thursday October 18, 2012   -   By Kentucky Proud

I hate this time of the year only because it means we are only 2 weeks away from the close of the 2012 market season. I love the fall beauty and the “not so average” veggies that are available. I say not so average because most folks do not go into a grocery...

When we get into the month of August we usually start our countdown.  How many days until opening day of the pumpkin patch season?  How long do we have to get everything on the "To Do" list finished?  There's a list on our refrigerator...
