Our little farm store opened for business the first week in September! Our current hours of operation are:
Wednesdays – 4-6 pm
Thursdays – 4-6 pm
Fridays – 4-6 pm
Saturdays – 11 am-5 pm
We plan to expand/adjust our hours starting in November. We would love to hear from YOU, our customers, on what days and times you would be most likely to stop by and shop.
Our store is an extension of our farm and is designed to help us connect with people for more of the year, not just during farmers market season. We will also offer a carefully curated selection of products from other local growers and makers. Everything you find in the store comes from within a 100 mile radius, and most products are grown or made right here in Cowley County! If there is a local or regional product that you would purchase if we carried it in the store, let us know! We are always looking to expand our product line.
We are also looking for local makers interested in having a pop-up shop in our store for a week at a time during the month of December. If this is you, or you know a local maker, let us know!

We Are Hiring!
Expanding hours at our store means we need more help! We are currently hiring for a store clerk available 10-12 hours each week, primarily on weekdays, mid-day to late afternoon. Applicants interested should contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Potential for additional hours during the holiday season.
An early freeze this week messed things up a little bit on the farm. But thanks to our high tunnels and some low tunnels, we were able to keep some of the produce going.
All field tomatoes, peppers, and okra are done for, but we covered the low tunnel hoops (pictured above) over our lettuce and cabbage with plastic and they came through just swimmingly. Still waiting (and waiting, and waiting ….. ) for some rain to help germinate some spinach and carrots we hope to grow this winter.
We hope you will bear with us this year as we fine-tune the ins and outs of growing vegetables over the winter. It’s certainly not a perfect science and will take us awhile to figure out.
Oh, we’ve got some awesome and weird things planned at the farm store in the next month!
October 22 – Buy One Get One FREE Houseplants and Pumpkins at the Farm Store!
October 29 – Goats in Costumes at the Farm Store at Ladybird Brewing
(This is all in theory, of course. We have four super sweet goats, and four costumes we will attempt to put them in that day. Bring your kids out for a picture with Goats in Costumes! Or, just enjoy the ridiculousness of watching us attempt to put costumes on our goats. And drink some Ladybird Beer.)

That’s all for now! See you soon at the farm store!
