​Thanks for the warm welcome at the market! It was really nice meeting you all and we’re excited to make this more of a regular thing this winter.
We (Jamie Wilbraham and Brad Smith) run a small certified organic vegetable farm in Belding, Michigan.  We use earth-friendly and sustainable growing practices to encourage biodiversity with a focus on the health of the soil.  We grow on a little less than 4 acres including two large unheated high tunnels and keep around 240 laying hens who live on pasture until winter begins.
Here’s a list of what we’ll have this Saturday:
Kale – Green Curly and Lacinato
Winter Radishes – Purple Daikon, Watermelon, and Black
Butternut Squash
Sweet Potatoes
Beets – Red and Golden
Cabbage – Green and Savoy
Thank you and see you on Saturday!
