Welcome to Sugar Creek Farm
Welcome! I'm Betsy Tucker, co-owner of Sugar Creek Farm. I'll be using this blog to communicate with family and friends all the latest news from our farm. Each week I'll post a list of the produce we'll be bringing to the farmers' markets, as well as all the details of our fulfilling, dirty, often hilarious life on the farm. You'll get the good, the bad and the dirty - farming ain't always pretty, folks! Picture a hot day mixed with a little manure and you get the idea. But farming is always satisfying work, even on the worst days. I hope you'll like what you read, and maybe get a little inspired to spend more of your time eating or growing local food. Who doesn't want to spend more time eating?
So, let's get on with it. On Tuesday, April 20, from 10 AM until 1 PM I'll be selling buttercrunch lettuce, red leaf lettuce and swiss chard at the new and improved Krankie's Market on 3rd Street behind Winston Tower downtown. It will be the first market day of the season for us. And yep, you got it, we are adding a WHOLE NEW MARKET this year! So you can buy from us on Tuesdays at Krankie's or, as always, on Saturdays at the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds Farmer's Market. At Krankie's, they will block off 3rd Street just outside the coffee shop, but I'm not yet sure where our table will be located. Safe to say, though, that out of ten or so vendors you will be able find us. We'll have a big new sign with our awesome new logo, so come check it out along with our yummy greens! At the Fairgrounds, you will find Jeff's smiling face in the same corner spot as last year on the row closest to the Village of Yesteryear. Those of you who have been to the Dixie Classic Fair will know the village that I'm talking about. Those who have not, well, I don't even know what to say. You better go this year! Happy spring, folks!!
