The Waitsfield Farmer's Market

Catherine Kenyon - Monday, June 14, 2010
Lana, Aunt Donna, and Allison have had two great weeks at the Waitsfield Farmer's Market. The Memorial Day weekend was very busy and we were well-received. We're just one tent down from the Red Hen Baking Company's venue and happy to see that Cyrus Pringle, Randy George's newest bread which uses Nitty Gritty Grain's Hard Red Winter Wheat, was being bought along with all their other yummy breads. The Waitsfield Farmer's Market is a really happening place every Saturday morning from 9AM to 1PM if you get a chance to check it out.  Dogs, kids, music, lemonade, really good food, and lots of beautiful things to buy.

The Corn is in the Ground

Catherine Kenyon - Saturday, June 05, 2010
This week Tom and David labored many long hours on the fields to get the last of this year's corn seed in the ground. Mother Nature was very kind to us and provided us with beautiful sunny warm days and then a little drama with the hail on Wednesday night. Not to worry, the crops survived the pyro-technic lightning and thunder and soon we'll be haying. We're happy to be here on our new website and glad that you are joining us.
