Found it advertised in the local village paper and made sure to go since I heard so many people talking about how great this one was!
Join me on this wonderful tour of all things hand grown and hand made.
As I entered the door, the smell of all kinds of vegetables, home made breads and desserts reached my always searching nose. The sounds of people talking and laughing were plentiful as the soft sounds of a guitar, played by a young woman, filled the air.
So many choices, so little time....
Fresh donuts sit next to hand turned wooden bowls.
Beautiful wooden bowls made from different kinds of Vermont native wood.
Root vegetables and colorful squash filled the tables.
Can you identify all these different kinds of squash?
All grown in the fertile soils of rural Vermont.
Sprouts of many different kinds and flavors got my attention and I think I am going to grow some of them myself in the very near future.
My favorite table was the Emu farmer. Fresh emu meat, eggs, lip balm, sausage, raw food for dogs and many other products helped me empty my wallet.
Emu eggs are huge!! I am going to plant some seedlings in a used shell to get my plants started. Nifty idea, huh?
This cooler was filled with fresh frozen Emu steaks. Lots of good organ meats for dogs as well as feet, necks and other delicious nutritious food for people and the pets they adore. Vermont Emu producers want to hear from dog owners who feed raw.
What caught my eye was this 50 lb bag of sunflower seed. The Emu farmer grew 40 acres of sunflowers this year for bird seed, bio fuel and cattle and emu feed. He had one of his trucks converted to run on the sunflower oil.
$12.50 is a steal for 50 lbs of black oil seed! We pay $19.00 for 50lb at the local feed store and it all goes to feed the flocks of birds who visit my house all day.
I will be buying my bird seed here from now on.
