Lathemtown Farm Fresh Market:  Market Open

Good morning! We are back to work, a little slower, but back!
I am sad to share the news of our recent closure. My husband had been battling a disease and this year it started to worsen. Several weeks ago we began hospice care. He passed, which was devastating to say the least. We have taken time to be with family and friends to grieve. To those of you that knew and reached out – thank you from the bottom of my heart!! I have never felt such love and support from those around me. While I will never completely heal, I am beginning to move forward and working on the farm and in the kitchen keeps joy in my life. I am happy to open again to share that with you. I will be offering a smaller amount of items for the next few weeks as my daughter will be getting married on the weekend of the 8th. Afterwards, I will be in full holiday mode!!!
Thanks again for your patience and kindness during this time.
Farmher Chef Amy
