Great news! We are happy to announce that we will be joining the Sturbridge Farmers Market this spring! A full market list with pricing and anticipated availability is coming soon, but we wanted to go ahead and note our market dates below.
The market received many vendor applications this year, so they are staggering vendors in the same category so that there isn't too much competition each weekend. This means that we won't be at the market for one weekend each month. We're hoping to host special events on some of the weekends that we aren't at the market. More on that to come! For now - note our market dates below (Sundays from 9am-1pm):
June: 7th, 14th, 28th
July: 5th, 12th, 26th
August: 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd
September: 6th, 13th, 20th
October: 4th, 11th
In addition to the Farmers Market, we will be opening our farm stand at the end of our driveway on Old Barrows Road. Don't have cash or want touch-free purchasing? Customers will be able pay for their purchases using their credit cards by visiting our website on their computer when they return home from the farm stand or by using their cell phone while at the stand. We're hoping this drive-up, outdoor stand will be a safe and healthy alternative to grocery store shopping during the ongoing Covid 19 outbreak. Want to purchase orders in advance? We will also be doing curbside pick-up on produce and beef orders once the farm stand is up and running! We've started seeds and are butchering another cow this month, and we anticipate opening the stand in late May or early June.
This may be obvious from the information already provided, but we've also added an online shop with the ability for online payments! Right now we are only selling bulk beef through the store for pick-up only, but we will be adding more functions and options to the store as produce comes available and we open our farm stand.
We hope that everyone is hanging in there during this stressful time. We cannot wait for this to all be over soon so that we can all enjoy a healthy, productive, and social summer. We look forward to meeting as many of you as possible at the market and events that we may host. Keep an eye on our website and join our mailing list for updates. Please reach out if you have any questions or comments!
