New Leaf Market logo |  Each week I’ll add information about this wonderful annual event.

Do you remember our missing farm hand from last year? We found him swimming (stuck) in the sink hole. Well he has found another hideout and we’ll need your help again this year. Kids you can wear your costume if you want for fun pictures on the tractor or with the baby lambs and goats. Then we’ll post your photo on our blog.

Johnston’s Meat will be here with their smoker and some of their wonderful barbecue pork and smoked sausage sandwiches.

Gerry & Carmen Zengel will be here with their Wood Carvings and Hand Crafted Originals. Both are talented artists and have been here every year.

Penny Kuhl will be on hand with persimmons and chestnuts again this year. She and her helper came last year and sold out. I just picked naturally grown Muscadine Grapes from their U-Pick to make our grape jelly. Sorry grapes are gone now. I’ve done a blog about their U-Pick Chestnuts but if you cannot get to their place you can still get them here.

Barnhart Farms with their fruits and vegetables came during the Mayhaw Festival and said they would be here for the tour. They always have a big selection. I’ll check and see if they can bring pumpkins. He said YES.

Mayhaw Jelly making demo. Did I tell you that David Ward will be here for his famous jelly making class. We have frozen berries still on hand and David will make up some juice ahead of time so he can show you how to make jelly the old-fashioned way – without pectin.

We, Golden Acres Ranch, LLC, will have plenty of lamb and goat cuts available then as well as all the jams and jellies.

Pan-Handlers will be conducting cooking classes on Saturday only at 11:00 AM Lamb Stew in the pressure cooker. At 2:00 PM.  Curry Goat also prepared in the pressure cooker. We’ll need you to register for this. No charge. We just need to know for seating and sampling.

Camellia Garden Circle will be here with their Atlas Garden Gloves. This is the ideal glove for the serious gardener. The profit is used to support the Jefferson County Extension 4-H Camp program. We sent two children again this year and hope to continue with this meaningful endeavor.
