Please remember to wash your produce, as not all items are table-ready. All food requires additional washing and rinsing before consumption. Thank you!
Don't Forget! There are U-Pick Cherry Tomatoes in the front of the driveway, and U-Pick Muscadines as well! Ask Becky for more information about picking!
Farm Fresh Eggs Available Tomorrow!
Hillary will provide farm fresh eggs for sale tomorrow! There will be a nice amount of eggs (dozens) for purchase, but they'll be available on a first-come-first-serve basis!
Roper Family Farm tends to 24 laying hens on 14 acres of pasture and woods. They are free to scratch and forage for insects, seeds, and minerals within mobile electric netting that gets moved every few days- providing safety from predators, opportunities to explore, fertilized soil, and consistent variety for their dietary needs. These hens are fed non-GMO, organic, and soy-free chicken feed and oyster shell grit. The Roper Family Farm believes that better nutrition, superior taste, and healthier hens demonstrate their commitment to healthy neighbors and happy chickens!
The farm is moving into the fall season, as the weather cools off. We are planting broccoli, cauliflower, mustards, kales, radishes, turnips, rutabaga, and other green things. We are looking forward to some rain this week to get these crops off to a good start. It's funny, we go from longing for sunshine to longing for rain. We are trying to learn to live with what is, and figure out how to make it work.
We are really excited about being able to offer eggs to our customers that come to the farm. Hillary, who has been working with us here at the farm, has a chicken operation close by and she is going to supply us with eggs as long as she has them. I had some last week and they are delicious – brown and fresh! They are going to bring 14 dozen this week and they will be first come, first served. Cost will be $5, cash.
