The Farmhouse at Waterberry Farm

There's always something going on here at Waterberry Farm, however June is when things go into overdrive! The Route 52 Farm Trail kicks off June 1 and that keeps things really hopping around here until August. Participating in the farm trail is a blast. We feel like we make new friends every week! Last summer we set up tables and sold our produce and baked items under the trees, which is great when the weather cooperates!
This year we've made a few changes. We've cleaned up the old yellow farmhouse that's served mainly as storage in the past. It's been a quite a bit of work but now if one of those notorious Southern storms blows up, we won't be scrambling get everything out of the rain! It's given us a great place to sell our produce and baked goods.
Introducing The Farmhouse at Waterberry!
We've also added two local artisans this year. Mary from Fat Bird Designs is back again this year with her hand painted tea towels, table runners, and napkins. She also sells hand drawn cards and many other hand made gift items.

 This year we are also joined by Sharon from Beatrice and Lulu. Sharon makes all kinds of hand made children's clothing from heirloom dresses to every day wear. She also makes hand made dolls, adorable market bags, and the CUTEST monogrammed hats ever!  She's got some other things in the works for later this summer. I can't wait to see what Sharon comes up with next. Check out her website for more info www.beatriceandlulu.net

Come on out this Saturday from 8-12 and see what's going on at Waterberry. You won't want to miss it!
