Hog Roast, Anyone?
We’ve had quite a few requests for whole hogs for customers’ summer bbqs or family reunions. Yes, we can accommodate! Just let us know how many people you plan to feed, and we can get you the right size hog for your party! Don’t have a way to cook it? You can always rent a smoker or spit from Noonan’s. We also recommend the new craze, a caja china, (Pronounced Ka-ha Chee-na) or “roasting box.”
To Market, to Market...
Farmer's markets have begun! We've already began market @ the Fairgrounds on Thursdays, & our Saturday Downtown Springfield markets begin tomorrow! We are so excited to try our our new (bigger) tent with more space. This means that The Farmstand will have new hours. Thursday, The Farmstand is open 10-2 & Saturdays we will be closed UNLESS there's inclement weather - then we will not be at the downtown market and will keep The Farmstand open.

Thursdays, 4pm - 7pm in the Shed
Downtown Springfield (in front of Cafe Moxo)
Saturdays, 8:00am - 12:30pm
