What a Bummer

You know what this is? It's Painted Hand Farm, Keswick Creamery and Otterbein Acres pulling out of the Carlisle Central Farmers Market. As many of you who follow this blog know, all three of us have been at the market since the doors opened back in September of 2007 selling locally and sustainably produced meat, dairy, produce and baked goods. Between the three of us, we had soft and hard cow and sheep cheeses, yogurt, pudding, eggs, veggies, fruits, bread, grass-fed beef & lamb, pastured chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks, pork and goat. Who can forget the Fishers' fresh blueberries, Keswick's creamy yogurt or when Jessica roasted her 4-H goat and sold sandwiches and tacos?

A HUGE THANKS to our loyal and supportive customers. Our business was good enough to keep coming back week after week, but due to politics beyond our control, we are no longer able to sell at the property located at 117 North Hanover Street.

Fear not, however, the farmers will be back come spring with an outdoor, seasonal, farmer-run, producers-only market delivering fresh, nutritious, sustainably-produced local foods to the people of Cumberland County. Stay tuned......

  1. I am so disapointed in the farmers market. I was so excited, and loved the goat cheese I cannot wait until the spring market starts up.
