July Farmers’ Market – this week!

It's definitely winter - plenty of snow on the mountains and even some rain.  It's nice to see that our water tanks have a little more in them, but this "Dry July" (rain, not alcohol) is not great for food production. Our stallholder list is ever changing...

Christmas market – this week!

It's here!  Our last market for 2015 has rolled around and what a year it has been...... I've asked Santa for some extra rain as our tanks are much lower than they should be leading into what could be a long hot summer.  I am not sure if he will comply between now and...
