…luckily, the manager still let me set up but I was not on the Main Street. Since I am not a regular vendor for the whole season, I have to request space each week as a walk on vendor. Foot traffic was a lot lighter. I still covered my Vendor fee (yeah)! and had several good friends come to visit me. Lesson learned and I have made an automatic reminder in my calendar to let me know to request space so this won’t happen again!
|August 2-8 is National Farmer’s Market Week|
Last week, the boys and I went to look at a property. A home on 11 acres. It seems to be set up just perfectly for the farm of my dreams. There is a 3-4 acres pasture on one side of the farmstead near a well. This seems like an ideal place for the You-Pick berries. Then, the house is situated in the middle with a big barn that has nest boxes and a little chicken door cut into the side of the barn. Then, there are another 3-4 acres on the far side of the farmstead which would be perfect for the You-Cut Christmas trees. There is also a large shop that would be great for a brooder…anyway, we are going back to look at it again on Thursday…prayers appreciated…
If anyone wants to make a $5000 donation to the Future Farm Fund, I can guarantee a dozen farm fresh eggs weekly for the next 20 years as repayment…LOL! What a great investment opportunities with edible dividends.
