Time for Soups and Stews! Online Market is Open!
Since we continue to experience colder than we’re use to temperatures this winter, it’s time to warm up with homemade soups and stews made from scratch with pastured and grass fed meats and bone broth. Not only will this warm you up but it will fill your body with good, healthy nutrients that will boost your immune system and help fight off colds and flu.

Produce progress report – things are growing at a very slow rate due to cold temperatures. Opossum Hollow and Arkansabi Farms both have greens planted and growing. Warmer temps and more sunlight will help get more veggies ready for the market. We really appreciate their efforts to grow year round for our market.
Just a reminder to stock up on chicken so you have plenty in the freezer until R Family begins raising their spring birds.
We appreciate our customers continued support of our local farmers/vendors. Have a great week and see you Saturday!
