This summer we will be at the Holland Township Farmers Market from 9 AM to 1 PM on Saturdays. Please stop by and meet us there. From savoring produce at the peak of freshness to meeting the people who grow your food, there are countless reasons to support farmers markets. Here are just a few!
1. Taste Real Flavors
2. Support Family Farmers
3. Protect the Environment
4. Discover the Spice of Life: Variety
At the farmers market you find an amazing array of produce that you don’t see in your average supermarket: Fava Beans, Purple Asparagus and Garlic Scapes to name a few.
5. Promote Humane Treatment of Animals
6. Know Where Your Food Comes From
7. Learn Cooking Tips, Recipes, and Meal Ideas
This farm was originally part of the “Hawk Farm” purchased by Joseph Hawk in 1819 for $3,420, a tidy sum in those days. We acquired the property in 2004 and meticulously restored and renovated the two stone buildings in 2005-2006. The month of acquisition housed a blue moon, hence the farm’s name.
Today, one would describe our farm as a small family farm, situated on 17 acres providing just about everything a farm family could want: pastures, orchard, hay fields, woodlands, fresh water springs and outbuildings. We have worked hard since 2004 to restore the farm to its natural beauty and capability. It is a labor of love that we wish to share.
This spectacular replica of the original barn is the perfect venue for your event. The barn was restored by a wonderful Amish company and the workmanship and care they bestowed is evident immediately when you separate the huge barn doors.
You will find us in the summer at the Holland Township Farmers Market. This quaint market, located at the Holland Township Fire House on Rt. 519 (at Andersen Rd), is small and the vendors are REALLY local.
The market is open beginning mid-June through September on Saturdays from 9am – 1pm. All of our products will be on sale as seasonally available.
