Local Sustainable Agriculture: Protecting the Environment while Serving our Community
We use methods that are organic and have the best interest of ourselves, our neighbors, and customers. Those practices also benefit the health of our animals and the environment.
The Market at Penn Center closed for the winter season. There were not to be any vendors at the market until March 202 but the market continues to be closed until further notice because of the COVID-19, Corona Virus pandemic. Until then you can purchase from us from us directly from the farm or track our location as we sell from our mobile market, a.k.a. our truck. Just like 'food trucks' with prepared foods, we will be in different locations with our wares.
How will you know where we are? We will post on our Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter accounts weekly. If you have a special need, let us know and we'll be sure to pack that item or those items with us. Also, we accept payments of cash and through CashApp, Venmo and Paypal.
What produce will we have with us on the truck? We will have collards, mixed salad greens, peppers, and eggs. There will be more things as soon as they are ready to be harvested. Sugar peas and cabbage will be ready soon.
Will there be any prepared foods? Funny you should ask. There will be baked goods with us occasionally, we'll post about too.
By the way, let us know ahead of time if you need a bundle or two of firewood or fat lighter to go along with it to get help your fires started.
Duck meat makes a delicious choice for the Christmas table. When we began raising ducks we decided to try duck for our Christmas meal and found it to be an outstanding addition to the main dish menu. If you are interested in trying duck at anytime, contact us and we will make the necessary steps to harvest and dress one of our ducks for you.
