In a world that seems to move faster every day, we like to slow things down on the ranch...and be old fashioned on purpose, and with purpose. Starting Colts is imperative to our mindset, and the way we tend our livestock. Live free, grow wild, and enjoy the ride~πŸ–€

VENDOR SPOTLIGHT:

Dynamic duo and friends for life, Leslie and Kate of The Family Farmstead and Kate’s Granola share a booth as well as their passion for food at the Saturday market!

During her previous experience as a chef, Leslie knew that the best ingredients make the best food, so she was inspired to start raising them herself! She’s got whole free-range chickens, Heritage cattle, Red Wattle hogs, and pasture-raised turkeys. She sells out fast, but you can sign up for her waitlist. Well worth it.

Kate’s been making granola for years, but with the encouragement of Leslie decided to make a business of it just last year! It’s her first year at the market and already her various granolas and frozen yogurt bars are a huge hit!

Find them at the south end of the market 🐷🌻

There is an art to the management of land and livestock in order to maintain balance. When both are respected with care; ultimately both will care for you.

Its the first day of Fall and the market gods have given us another Wednesday vendor! The Family Farmstead and Kate’s Granola are hopping onto the West end of the market through the end of the season. Don't delay on reserving your Thanksgiving turkey from these fine ladies! πŸ‚
The Family Farmstead Demonstration with Chef Greg Christian and Farmer Leslie Christine who provided her excellent juicy, super flavorful free range chickens from our happy Farm was a great success. Chef Greg's Chicken Tacos were to die for. πŸ†πŸ₯‡Come get your Whole FryersπŸ“, Chicken Breasts, Drumsticks πŸ— or Wings next Saturday at Springfield's Farmers Market. These FAMILY FARMSTEAD birds are raised responsibly by Leslie Christine.
