For those of you looking for ways to get closer to the source of your food, we have a suggestion. Take the mystery out of your food by buying directly from local farmers like the Metzgers. That way, you can say for sure you know where your food comes — The Metzgers’ Farm on Crandall Hill in Potter County, Pennsylvania.
This week tryout the “Local-food” principle: Good agriculture should have nothing to hide. You’ll find that Arthur and Jane are only too happy to describe their all-heirloom vegetables and tell you about the growing methods used on their farm. Ask Jane about the Speckled Roman, Green Zebra and Moonglow growing in the high-tunnel and find out why these heirloom tomatoes taste better than the store-bought ones. Then ask Arthur about the several kinds of heritage potatoes grown on the farm without the chemical fertilizer, herbicides or pesticides. And for toppers, you might wanna get them to share one of their wonder recipes that incorporates two or more vegetables grown at Metzger Heritage Farm. And, this will make the trip to the local farmers market a really fun activity! Oh-by-the-way, it’s the traditional way of buying agricultural products within the community; Farmer-to-Consumers.
Our regular market hours are each Friday during the hours of 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. continuing until the Falling Leaves Festival.
