market day- part 2

thank you so much for all of your encouragement and well wishes as we set out on our first leg of our granola adventure!
we had so much fun at market day! i have always loved shopping at farmer's markets, so being on the other end of it as a seller was pretty great. the community you feel with the other vendors is really special. lisa and christian from blue heron farm brought these precious three day old baby goats. the minute they hopped out of the car buddy asked me "do you think i can hold one?". he did not want to let that baby go! i don't blame him.

the weather had been stormy all morning, so the turn out was lower than expected. But for my first go, i was really pleased with the traffic that went through. there was meat, goat cheese, produce, lamb, pork, chicken, pound cake, and our granola.


moonpie was my little helper throughout the day, flitting back and forth between our table and the field where she was busy building grass forts with the other children. i think she was the most excited to learn that we completely SOLD OUT of everything! what a blessing!


***a big, big thanks to my sweet friends that came out to support us! that really made my day!

Congratulations, Mandi! What is the name of your granola? Also, I agree with the above comment, that handsome old Levi goat picture must go in a frame. He looks SO old, SO handsome, and very much like you, I think. Sweet boy.

You should use that picture on the front of your granola package. I don't know if goats are good marketing for granola, but cute boys holding baby goats are good marketing for anything. :)
