Tomorrow morning from 8:00-12:00, we'll be set up at the Main Street Farmer's Market in Downtown Batesville. And, via social media, we've been revealing over the course of the week 4 great reasons to come on out and see us. Just in case you missed that, here's a recap. ;)
1. Brand new foaming hand soaps! The formula is slightly improved and the scents are DIVINE -- new ones include HIM and CALM (made with lavender essential oil). $6 each.
2. BLACK and BLUE. This is our foraged blackberry jam. Berries combine with organic blue agave nectar for a sugar-free, organic jam. I love the name of this stuff because it hints at the labor of love it is to produce a jar. The entire Brood was involved in the foraging. Elijah's specialty is "burrowing tunnels" so that we can get through the brambles to more choice berries (trust me, this is quite entertaining). Millie is a quiet picker who is likely to sneak off with her fishing pole if you look away for too long. And Esther is the constant measurer. She knows exactly how many cups it takes to make a batch of jam, takes the measuring cup with us, and is constantly collecting from the pickers to add to the cup and then reporting back on our progress. Then, of course, she's figured up how much of the cut of the profits each person should get. ;) Jars are $7 each.
3. This is the third year our market has been in existence, and we have been a part of it from the get-go. The first year, I kept waiting for one of the produce vendors to pull in with some Cave City watermelon, but it never came. And, it never came the next year. The Batesville market is 15 short miles away from the world's sweetest watermelons, and we aren't selling them?! We decided to take matters into our own hands this year. So, tomorrow, we will have the bed of the farm truck full of Cave City Watermelon. Pricing will vary based on size.
4. And, finally, to show our customers some love we are giving away a FREEBIE! Customers who buy 3 dozen eggs and a soap (bar or hand soap) will receive a FREE Brood Farm t-shirt. That means spending $16-$18 on some goodies and then getting a $15 t-shirt thrown in! Obviously, this offer will only be good until the eggs run out, so there's some incentive to set that alarm and get to market early tomorrow!
So, those are some great reasons to visit the Brood Farm booth at tomorrow's market. But, there are countless other reasons to show up for our neighboring vendors, too. Have you ever tasted a Cherokee Purple tomato?
We hope to see you there!
