We have survived the heat and bugs of summer and are very excited that cool nights and crisp days seem here to stay.. As Grass Only! Grass-fed Beef farmers here at Bold Branch Beef, we are all very very very excited for Fall and to see the fields start growing like crazy again. While our cows roam through their pastures, munching all the new grass growth, we are sadly winding our 2016 Farmers’ Market season down. Raising beef is fun but getting to know the folks in our community is probably my favorite things about being a full-time farmer and working the farmers’ markets in the area is the best possible way to meet other folks that value farming, local food, and grass fed beef. We’ve had a very good Farmers’ Market season raising and selling our Grass Fed and Finished beef to the fine folks of Lynchburg, Forest, Bedford and all of Central Virginia.
We started the season off with a bang and we were working not one or two but FIVE! Farmers’ Markets per week. With just one full time farmer, we realized pretty quickly that we’d bitten off a lot more than we could chew. Unfortunately this meant we had to make some tough decisions and give up most of our mid=week markets but we still had a good season selling Grass Fed Beef to the fine folks at the Forest Farmers’ Market. As 2016 winds down we are still putting our plans together for the best markets that will fit with what we are trying to do. We’ll keep you all posted on that, both here on our website and on our Facebook page!
Not only are we at these Farmers’ Markets but we our beef through a few retail outlets.
