Farmer's Market News

Well, we just became a "certified grower" so now we can sell our eggs independently at farmers markets around the north state! The folks at the Glenn County Ag Department were very helpful and gave me lots of wonderful advice for the novice egg seller. If you ever have occasion to go there ask for Jean she is super!

I tried the market in Colusa Monday night. Although it was a bit of a slow evening, heck it was only a 102 degrees in the shade :-), I managed to sell all but a dozen of our eggs. It is a wonderful market and if you ever are in Colusa County, stop by. It is on Monday evenings from 5-8 p.m. near the airport.

My dear friend Paula from Windmill Farm in Gridley has graciously allowed me to share her stall at the farmers markets. Windmill Farm produces fabulous vegetables, flowers, and fruit and it is nice to present a wide array of products, even if I just do the eggs! Check out Windmill Farm's blog link on this site. Paula always has inventive and beautiful ways to display her bounty so I am very fortunate to be working with her. Right now she has fabulous peaches, cantalope and watermellon that are just yummy! Not to mention tomatoes, basil to die for and lots of other fresh veggies. Pumpkins will be coming soon in time for fall. It looks like we may do Colusa again this coming Monday so look for us if you are in the area. If you are not in the area, contact Windmill farm or us at Happy Chick Farm to purchase fabulous farm fresh delights!
