One Farm Market brings local food under one roof
“We can’t do everything on our own, so working with other farmers really helps to form the entire local food scene work,” Heath Hoppes says
“I want it to be sort of a green market booth on steroids,” Myer said.
Fresh produce greets customers almost as soon as they enter the door.
“We have meat and cheese, ice cream, syrup , honey. The list goes on and on,” Myer said.
Myer has been growing vegetables for 12 years at One Farm. She said the goal of the market is to place local producers ahead of eager customers.
“Aggregating products from other producers and manufacturers round the state and us having the ability to point out off what we do at a private level,” Myer said.
Like Heath Hoppes and Hidden Hollow Farm, for instance . His farm has been operating for fewer than 10 years.
“We’re finally going to the purpose to where we’ve livestock and meats to sell to the general public ,” Hoppes said.
He said he is not curious about becoming a wholesaler.
“Our goal was never to overcome the planet from a farming standpoint,” Hoppes said.
Though he said he does want to offer his community the choice of fresh meats.
“We can’t do everything on our own so working with other farmers really helps to form the entire local food scene work,” Hoppes said.
Myer said that’s why One Farm Market emphasizes local and fresh products.
“I’m hoping our store are often a platform for people to check their products if they’re eager to dabble,” Myer said. “If they only got sheep for the primary time and that they think they need to sell lamb we would like them to use us as a laboratory .”
