First Saturday in July Marks the Opening of the Stand
Our stand will be officially open for it’s first Saturday today, July 6, from 10:00 until 12:30. We have swiss chard, scallions, mustard, lettuce, basil, parsley, beets, and turnip greens for sale.
People often ask us about our prices. We are within walking distance of Aldi’s and Save-a-Lot, so our prices get compared to theirs. Our prices cannot compete with conventional, industrial agriculture which is done on a huge scale using short-sighted methods and government subsidies. We are a small, family-run farm that gets no grants or welfare checks from the government. Our prices reflect intensive, all-natural farming techniques which honor the land and the living things that share it, and are comparable with prices you would find at the Lexington Coop or Wegmans.
Our produce is generally picked that morning, sometimes even as you wait (can’t get any fresher than that). You are guaranteed to find some evidence of other life forms sharing our space – perhaps some insect damage or a leaf that was trimmed by a rabbit. You will never find chemical sprays or dusts that need to be washed off with special soaps. Plus, you are welcome to visit our farm to meet us and see what we do, how we operate, what we grow, and you are encouraged to come help out – we have volunteer days on the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 until 12:00.
See you later!
