The Simple Farm - Part 2

The Simple Farm that I showed you here not only grew fruit and vegetables, but sold them, plus other products in a charming cafe/shop.

The bread was mostly gone when we arrived. Next time we'll go earlier.

Orange blossom or mesquite honey to go with that bread?  There were a few jams and jellies, too.

Next to the bread was a refrigerator painted with chalk board paint.  It contained the goat products -- cheese, yogurt, milk, sour creme, etc.  Next time we ONLY go there so we can buy some of these.  I absolutely LOVE goat cheese!


A sign with all the veggies they carry.  Some were not available while we were there.

Another chalkboard with all the herbs listed.  Remember the Gourmet Garden and the French Garden?

Whoa!  What are these?

Oh, good thing there was a sign.  My Armenian friend, Virginia would have known what they were without the sign.

More squash -- this I recognized.

These too, my mom raised pickling cucumbers and made pickles every summer.

Squash, eggplant and tomatoes - a little Mediterranean, yes?

These look like lovely thistles to me.

Aren't they beautiful?

Some people come just to gather after their shopping is done.

A little coffee and lemon pound cake anyone?

Oh, wait, that looks yummy, too!  And NO WiFi!  No computers, just a nice gathering place to visit and enjoy a little treat.  This is definitely a place for a repeat visit!

Then it was back through the raised beds toward the parking lot and our next two stops.  A Simple Farm, An Olde World Quilt Shop and Sweet Salvage all in one day!  We had much to see.  I'll share the others in later posts.

What a fun day!

Have a wonderful weekend!
