Market News

We welcome two new producers this week:

Bee Busters Farm in Winchester raises purebred Berkshire pigs. Their pigs are raised on pasture, supplemental feed and surplus vegetables from their garden and neighboring gardens. They currently have six finished hogs for sale, ranging in size from approximately 200 to 275 pounds. Click here to contact Bee Busters to learn more about "going whole hog".

Cove Creek Farm from Tracy City also joins us this week and will soon have pastured pork available on the market. They also have grass-fed, grass-finished cattle, and free range laying hens. Their animals are  raised on pasture, sunshine, and fresh air to bring you the tender flavors of the Cumberland Plateau. Their lean, grass-fed, grass-finished beef is high in omega-3 fatty acids and rich in vitamins and minerals. They firmly believe that animals raised as nature intended live happier, healthier lives and produce more nutritious food for your table.
