Ferrous sulfate, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, disodium guanylate, high fructose corn syrup, Mmmmm, Mmmm, doesn’t that sound yummy, give me another helping now, NOT! Yvette always tells me if it survives in space you probably don’t want to be eating it!
Not worry, you won’t find that kind of stuff at Ken & Yvonne Harris’ a.m. Fog on the Nelson-Albemarle County Line along Route 151 in Afton. They’re as close to the farm as you can get with plenty of fresh meats and vegetables.
They’ve already got; Asparagus, Lettuce, Cucumbers, STRAWBERRIES, strawberry onions (the best!!!), roasting potatoes, Idaho potatoes, carrots, green peppers, farm eggs, meat, and fresh baked bread.
And yea, they still have my favorite the trusty:
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 have you seen that new beautiful farm market going up, they ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS NOW, and soon they’ll be featuring hot teas, coffee, muffins, and bread.
Visit them on the web at www.amfog.net or call them at 540-456-7100.
