Happy Thanksgiving from all the Turkeys on the farm, here are the Toms…..

and here are the Hens…not pictured are the other 20 turkeys.

This weekend is the City of Buckeye Farmers Market.  Saturday from 9 to 1 p.m. at the Sundance Park,  Tonopah Rob and several other vendors will be selling all kinds of produce, meats, breads and many other specialty foods. (Click onto the above tab, directions to the markets for all the market information).

The farm stand in Tonopah will be closed because everyone will be at the Buckeye market.  This location is open to all CSA memberships.  This is the last selling weekend for November.  Tonopah Rob will not be open the weekend after Thanksgiving, stock up on your veggies!

Also, open this weekend is the PenLina Farmers Market, located at the Peoria Sports Complex from 8 to noon.  This is a great location, parking is great.  If you can't make it out to the Buckeye market there will be plenty of Tonopah Rob's veggies at the PenLina market.  Come out and support your local farmer and get your "bean on" for Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is a time to acknowledge how thankful we are for each other, family and friends.  I am very thankful to all of you whom have supported the farm and I'm especially thankful for all the volunteers that helped make the November markets successful.  Many hugs and handshakes go out to all the volunteers, customers, friends, neighbors, and the elderly lady down the street, you know who you are…..and, I did like I was asked to, thank you again.
