If  you are off of work today, and in need of some fresh produce, local cheese and honey, farm fresh eggs, and other healthful goodies, head on over to Boggy Creek Farm on Lyon’s Road, just off of East 7th Street.  It is a full on working farm, with a larger farm in Gause.  Carol Ann and Larry have a beautiful set up on some acreage and grow some of the tastiest organic food around.  They are really nice people as well.  The farmstand is open from 9:00 to 1:00, every Wednesday and Saturday.  Make sure to say howdy to the chickens!  And wear appropriate shoes, it might be a bit muddy from yesterday’s rainfall.  From their website, here is a listing of what is available.
