Easter Blessings to you


Please enjoy this special day. I will be opening the market after sundown this evening.

Here we go again! 2022 Market


Hello to all,

It is time to open the season for our Berea Gardens Drive-Through Farmer’s Market. It has been a typically challenging spring season here in WV with vast temperature swings and alternating wet and dry soils, but we are ready to get underway with some of our early maturing items. Lots more is growing and the selection will enlarge greatly in the coming weeks.

This week Bop & Nana’s Bakery will be here, Tom McColley will have some green onions, Melanie Degan will have eggs and Carol Houchin has local honey. Kenny Point is wrapping up his tax preparation business and will be joining us a little later. Circle S farms has a commitment this week, but will be here for the duration of the season starting the 20th with their natural, local meats.

We thank you all for making our little, isolated market such a success. Have a look at the Spring 2022 edition of “WV Living” magazine and find a nice article about us by Peter Krch!

We look forward to seeing you all again on Wednesday at the same pick-up hours from 4 to 6 PM.

Blessings,
Bob & Lynnita Gregory

The end of seasom market opens now


Hello Dear Friends,

We want to take a moment to thank all of you that have supported us and kept us going for another season. You truly are a blessings to us. We pray you have a wonderful Christmas Season.

This will be our last Market until early next Spring. If growing conditions are suitable we are looking to open in early April. I will keep you posted as the time gets closer. It has been our pleasure to serve you all this year and we also want to thank our very special group of other vendors that makes our market such a special event.

Love and prayers to you all,

Bob & Lynnita

Market ordering enabled


Hi Friends,

With the growing season winding down Lynnita has a smidgen of time to do a little baking, so we have added some of her hit items to the list this week.

Our last market for this year will be the market on Wednesday, December 22. Weather determines when we will reopen for 2022 and our hope is that we can get things rolling again in early April.

We still have a quantity of the Kabocha Squash varieties and plenty of Potatoes if you want some quality foods that will store until we reopen in Spring.

Blessings,
Bob

Ordering Enabled


Hi Friends,

The page is open for accepting this week’s orders. Lynnita is making some Gingerbread Muffins for Wednesday and says she will make some Bundt Gingerbread when we get closer to Christmas, so you might want to try some for a sample.

Had a great time last week with our indoor market. Remember to pull around to the back and masks are required inside. Melody and Kenny will be here with their offerings too.

Blessings,
Bob and Lynnita

Market Open!


Hi Friends,

It’s our favorite week of the year here at the farm as we reflect on the year’s blessings, the miracle of God’s gifts to us through the soil, and the gratitude we have for all of you that have supported us this past season.

This will be the last week of our “Drive-through market” up front, but I have good news for those of you that want your weekly opportunity to enjoy the products that Berea Gardens, Bop and Nana’s Bakery, Kenny Point, Carol Houchin and Circle S Farms have to offer. Beginning December 1 we will move the market pick up spot to our meeting room downstairs at the back of the building. We will be servicing pre-orders only inside, but Dan will have his trailer in the parking area up front so he can meet your shopping needs there. More info about how to pre-order from the various vendors will be posted next week. For Berea Gardens, you can just continue as always using our online market.

If you don’t want or have time to come in, you can just toot your horn and we will bring your orders out to you.

Inside, we will have the wood stove fired up, and the teapot on so if you want to visit for a spell, you can. We will require that masks be worn indoors.

Again, I want to thank all of you for making this year such a special one for all of us at the market. Blessings for a special Thanksgiving.

Bob, Lynita, and the rest of the gang
