No More Farmers Market Until November 2nd

Thank you to everyone that visited our farmers market this season. We had some great new vendors that really brought some zing to our market . If you know of any vendors that you would like to see at the market in November - or there is something specific you would like to see at the market, please drop me an email and let me know. In the meantime, if you're interested in chickens, we will be starting our Spring ordering of chickens within the next few weeks. Visit our website and get a copy of the chick order form. If you're thinking of getting chicks, but don't really know which kind to get (it can be very confusing), please send me an email and I would be glad to help - I have a flock of my own!
