UPCOMING EVENTS

Saturday April 27

First Forest Farmers Market

Come visit us at the Forest Farmers Market beginning April 27! This market is special to us because it is only ONE MILE from the farm. You can not get more local than that! It is also a producer-only market. Being a producer-only market means the vendors can only sell products they have either made or grown themselves. Because of this rule, you will not find any eggs from Mountain Run Permaculture, cheese from Shenandoah Family Farms, or cookies/crackers from Little Hat Creek Farm at our booth unless you order and pay for them ahead of time through our website. We have the same selection of bread and produce you will find at the Lynchburg Market! Come out and visit us as well as the other great local vendors!

Wednesday May 1
