Thankful for the rain this weekend. We sure needed it.
Visited Baird Family Farm yesterday. As I entered the main entrance I was greeted by two beautiful milk goats munching on creek forage. In the field behind them are Beautiful 100 foot long raised beds filled with all kinds of organically grown food. A circle of herbs and flowers catch your eyes as you walk beyond the raised beds to spaded field filled with soy beans, sweet potatoes and more. Across the creek and past the Farm Cabin is a nice outside kitchen with a view of more raised beds full of Assorted Greens,, carrots turnips, radishes to name just a few . And there is more. Across another bridge with large creek is yet another massive field. The soil is so dark and sweet. Watermelons , tomatoes , squashes and more adorn this field. With Hawk flying overhead , rushing water over rocks and lovely peaceful breeze this farm girl stood in appreciation of all the obvious hard work that went into and continues to create this thriving abundant farm. Fruit and berry orchards on hill sides too! Wow! The land there has been farmed using Bio-Dynamic Practices for over 25 years. The food from this farm is beautiful to look at and highly nutritious. They encourage people to come on out and visit the farm! You may even get put to work.
The Baird Family Farm is looking for farm help. If you are interested please contact Richard Baird directly at 864-436-7773 or email him at email@example.com
The Market will remain open till 4pm.
