Shiloh Farm's first market was a success this weekend, and we are eagerly forging ahead, anticipating a busy season. It was a whirlwind of 24 hours prepping salad mix, washing radishes, and bundling kale late into Friday evening and early Saturday am before market. We were very thankful for the extra set of hands that came to help, prepping our radish bundles that quickly sold out on market morning. While the rainy weather took us by surprise, we were amazed to see and meet so many wonderful local families. We are excited to see our passion for offering organic and sustainable produce to the Antietam community come to life!
While Saturday morning was a bustle of activity meeting other vendors and customers, our desire is to share our vision and passion for what we do. So what are we passionate about? And why is organic and sustainable food so important to us? Check out our farming practices page!
We are passionate about eating locally grown food and offering nutrient dense food to the local community that was grown in a way that regenerates the land. This passion has grown over the years and the chance to get out hands in the dirt has only propelled us more fully in this journey. We have found the land to be a place where both past and present meet, where each day we end with dirt on our hands and gratitude in our hearts.
This weekend at market we will be offering a variety of greens, radishes, and shoots—a great side dish for your Memorial Day picnics! Not sure what shoots are? Shoots also go by the name microgreens which is exactly what they are—tiny greens; the shoots of salad vegetables. They go great in a salad or as a garnish on soups or sandwiches! Come check them out.
Join us every Saturday from 8-12 at the Antietam Valley Farmer’s and Artists Market! For directions click the link!
