Farm Market is Back!: Newsletter May 3, 2022
|Our Farm Market is back!|
Since we moved the bakery to our detached garage on Thomas Jefferson Road a few years ago we have operated a mini farm-store in the front half of the building during the busy season. We’ve recently made some improvements, including a beautiful new sign, and we are expanding hours in hopes that we can find more convenient and consistent times for you to stop by for bread and veggies. Starting this week we will be open WED-FRI from 3-5 pm with a selection of our seasonal offerings.
Our harvest lists are long, our planting fingers are numb and we are ready to get down to business! With the first CSA share being divvied out this Wednesday, our farm store opening Wed-Fri and our plant sale Sunday, our dockets are as full as our greenhouses. No matter what the day, there is opportunity for you to get your hands on our fresh produce and bread. Come out and see us!

Bread of the week: Pain au Levain.
Pain au Levain is simply French for “sourdough bread” and is our flagship loaf. Tearing off the hearty crust reveals a very open crumb. A mild sourdough flavor and made with just whole and sifted flour, sourdough, and salt.
|Come to the Farm on Sunday!|
|Sustainably grown, organic, pesticide free, free range, compost, cover crop are all words you may hear thrown around while perusing produce at the Lynchburg Market. What do all of these words mean in the grand scheme of things? They mean better food for you and your family and they mean working with the natural world to do so.|
For instance, did you know we don’t use ANY artificial pesticides at Great Day Gardens? That’s right, no need to worry over nasty chemicals spoiling that perfectly sliced tomato.
Instead we try to encourage natural remedies for such occurrences like letting Lady Bugs lay. Did you know Lady Bugs are worth more than their looks? They are predators to small insects that feed off our food such as aphids and leave our produce alone. That is why we are thankful for our Lady Bugs at the farm.
