Durham Farmers' Market

We have been accepted into Durham Farmers' Market for this season! We are so psyched. Brian will be selling up there on Saturdays 8am-noon (and probably Wednesdays too, starting in May) and Joann will stay selling at Carrboro.

We have a busy year ahead of us. We're growing triple what we did last year for most of our product - and with some product more than that.

Local food is a whole new way (and old fashioned way) of experiencing food, not just something you choose at the supermarket, not just a fad diet. Once you get into it, there's no turning back. At least that's the way it was for us.

We hope people will give local food time to grow and develop. It's very hard for farmers on a small scale to expand and meet the current demand. And in many cases the customers are foregoing many of the conveniences of the industrial food system. But in place of convenience, you get quality, and we hope quality keeps folks coming back season after season.
