Happy April, Farm Friends!

Did the winter seem to fly by for you?  It sure did for us here at the Farm!  We were working on so many projects that it just blew by!  Our hands were really full with making lots of infrastructure improvements including irrigation greenhouse upgrades, new fields, landscape fabric on the brambles, etc, etc!  You get the idea!

Now it is full-tilt Spring (or did it go straight to summer?)! Seeding, preparing land, weeding and planting are the endless tasks! 

Also with Spring comes the arrive of Farmers Market season!  This season, we will be at 2 markets on a regular basis:  The Cobblestone Old Salem Farmers Market (Saturday) and the King Farmers Market (Wednesday).  Cobblestone opens THIS SATURDAY (4/13) at 9:00 a.m.!  For the first 5 weeks of the market, we will be at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts (251 N. Spruce Street in downtown Winston-Salem --1 block off Fourth Street).  Market hours are 9-noon and parking is available across the street ($1 in the lot and free on the street).  On May 18, we will return to Old Salem.

On opening day we have a great line-up of organic produce:  spring garlic, powdered and granulated garlic, asparagus, baby kale, baby swiss chard, baby bok choy, salad mix, tomato and basil transplants, and bare-root blackberry plants.  In addition we will have our yummy raspberry and blackberry jam as well as limited quantities of Yam's Jam Sweet Potato Butter!

Opening day is always such a treat!  Please come by to share in the great energy and find some wonderful produce and artisan products!  We have some great new vendors this year as well as many returnees!

Hope to see you on Saturday!  Pre-orders are also welcomed if you see something in the list you'd like!

Here's to good, healthy eating,

Cheryl & Ray

Mark Your Calendar! Holiday Market on November 25!

It won't be long until our 4th Annual Small Business Saturday Holiday Market!  Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 25 from 10-3.  This event, now in its 4th year, has become the destination for many visitors to kick off the Holiday Season.  We'll be teaming up again with our friends from Buffalo Creek Farm and Creamery in Germanton.  There will be lots of vendors at both locations who will offer locally grown and produced items for the perfect gift for Holiday giving.  Feel good about supporting your local small business owners!
