Ten small local businesses plan to set up outside Buffalo Creek Farm and Creamery’s Farm Store on Nov. 28, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. as part of their annual Small Business Saturday event. In addition to Buffalo Creek’s farmstead goat’s milk cheeses, customers will be able to sample and purchase products from Sweet Mornings Farm (jams, jellies and baked goods), Tyson Farm (honey), Running Pine Herb Farm (herb blends, flavored vinegars, simmering potpourris, jam and jellies), Piemonte Farm (artisan cow’s milk cheeses, jams and jellies), and Crooked Run Vineyards (muscadine grape juice). In The Screaming Radish food truck, Chef Kevin Reddick will be cooking up delicious cuisine with products from local farms and family owned companies for customers to purchase and enjoy for lunch while relaxing on the farm. Long Family Farm’s soaps and lotions, VineWorks’ kudzu baskets and wreaths, Shady Creek Farm’s goat’s milk laundry detergent and soaps along with hand crocheted items, Dinner Time Chimes’ spoon wind chimes and more, and a variety of food and gift items in the Farm Store will round out the items available to Saturday’s shoppers. Coolers are available for those frozen and refrigerated purchases!
Visitors to the Farm Store are typically able to view the farm’s livestock (goats, sheep, zebu cattle, chickens, turkeys) from the parking area by looking out into the pastures that border the Farm Store. While shoppers browse the selection in the Farm Store, they are able to watch a virtual tour of the farm to take a peek behind the scenes of where the goat milk cheeses are produced. Buffalo Creek’s owners, in addition to the owners of each of the local businesses, will be available to answer questions and to explain more about their products.
The local business owners are gearing up for Small Business Saturday and hope that everyone continues to Shop Local and Shop Small this holiday season.
The Farm Store is open daily (Monday-Saturday 9-6; Sunday 1-6) throughout the year. They offer a variety of local foods and gift items, including products from the vendors who will be joining them on Small Business Saturday.
