Belle Meade Fall Fest

Last Saturday, we participated in the Belle Meade Fall Festival as Farmer's Market vendors. Our main objective was to advertise our 2009 CSA program. I made a display board to explain what a CSA is, and to show people pictures of our farm. We gave out samples of our sweet potatoes. We also gave out flyers and business cards. This family was so kind to come and play bluegrass music at our booth. Their beautiful music created a nice atmosphere.

We arrived to set up at 7:00 a.m. and didn't leave until 6:30 p.m., so we were exhausted by the end of the day. Even though it was a long day, and we didn't sell a lot of veggies, it was worth going because of all the good contacts we made.
