Spring Moon In Nelson
Yea, there’s still a chill in the air, and winter still might have a surprise or two up it’s sleeve, but Spring is here and minds are turning to fresh vegetables from the garden. Before you can get those vegetables you’ve gotta plant em. Or, buy em. Not the stuff you’ll get shipped in here from thousands of miles away, something fresh, something tasty. That’s what you’ll find at Ken & Yvonne Harris’ a.m. Fog on the Nelson – Albermarle County Line along Route 151. Whether you want to plant or buy they have you covered.
When you stop by you’ll find:
-Hydroponic tomatoes and cucumbers
-On Farm & Locally Grown Lettuce
Not to mention:
-Local, organically Raised Farm Eggs
-Local â€œHappy Steerâ€ Hormone and Antibiotic Free Meat
-Local Hormone & Antibiotic Free Chicken
Not to mention all of the other vegetables, annual, and perennial plants along with lots of fruit trees ready for the spring planting! Spring is here!
And coming soon, that new farm market under construction now, featuring hot teas & coffee, muffins, and bread. They’re open now, but be looking for the grand opening of the new and larger farm market in just a few days!
Visit them on the web at www.amfog.net or call them at 540-456-7100.
