So What's a Plum Granny?

You may be wondering "What exactly is a plum granny?"  We are sooo glad you asked!  And it is really not a new look for our favorite grandma -- purple hair and all!  Nope, a plum granny is the old timey, Appalachian name for what some call a passion flower.  They are vines with beautiful flowers with very showy centers and which bear a small plum-shaped fruit that tastes like passionfruit.  These flowers grow wild around the farm -- especially in the Meadow.  Naming the farm after this flower is a tip of the hat to Cheryl's dad, Holt Ferguson, who told her about the flowers so many years ago on one of their walks in the Meadow.  Thanks Daddy for sharing your knowledge!

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!
