Bracing For Winter!


Dear supporters,

We will be trading at the Kensington Farmer’s Market (Saturdays) and the Olney Farmer’s Market (Sundays) through the winter: both are open 52 weeks a year and we will be there for you (except for Thanksgiving weekend when we’ll be taking some sun in Florida!). By popular demand we have brought back our Fall Turkey Pie, with an entire meal including roast turkey, gravy, sweet potato, stuffing and cranberry sauce in one pie, until Christmas.

Support your local market.
