Boone County Farmers Market

No Comments

We will be at the Boone County Farmers Market this Saturday October 3, 2020. We have been selling our Belgian mums for the last two weeks. First at the Boone County Arboretum Fall plant sale which was hosted at Ammon Nursery. We sold out of all of the mums we had on hand. The second week was at the Boone County Farmers Market which is at Camp Ernst and KY18. We decided to bring twice as many as week one, and sold just over half of them! We are expecting to completely sell out of all of the mums we have grown in the next two weeks! We are so excited over the response we have had to our mums in our first year. We want to thank everyone who has purchased our plants, we hope our mums help you get the most of this incredible season of color and cooler weather.

Fall is probably my favorite season of the year. I enjoy the cool crisp air of the season. Time seems to slow a bit in the Fall, as we all get a break from the stress of Summer. I enjoy the color show the trees provide. When our kids were small we use to take them to the pumpkin patches on Route 8 along the Ohio river. We would wander the patches looking for the perfect pumpkin. Then there was the apple fritters and apple cider. These are all precious memories my wife and I treasure.

It is our desire for you to be able to create your own Fall memories, whether with your children or that someone special. Mums are our first step in assisting your to enjoy the Fall season. In 2021 we will grow your mums once again, but also pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks on our farm. We at WhiteHouse Farm wish you an incredible Fall season. We hope to see your at the Boone County Farmers Market this Saturday to get your mums!

We are excited that our mums have arrived! Fall is probably Gina and my favorite season. It brings thoughts of crisp evenings, fire pits , caramel apples, pumpkins, and mums ! We want to continue these memories for our grand children and yours too. Early in Gina and my marriage a tradition we had was a Fall visit to route 8 where we would walk the fields with our kids to find the perfect pumpkin, eat apple fritters, purchase gourds and corn stalks to decorate our house. This was something we treasured each year, and made many great memories each years that we will always treasure. Most of the farms that had the pumpkin fields are all gone now, but Gina and I want to recreate the experiences we had with our children. Growing mums for our neighbors is our first step in celebrating the incredible season of Fall. Our mums will be available this September just in time for your Fall festivities! Where we go from crops of mums is planting an orchard of apples trees! This happens this Fall when we transplant our first eight apple trees into a section of the farm we have set aside for our fruit trees. Spring 2021 will be our first crop of pumpkins! stay tune as we bring back the Fall festivities we remember from years gone by!
