Featured vendor of the week:
This week’s featured vendor is Blue Mountain Valley Farm. The farm is located on 150 acres within the famous Blue Ridge Mountains. The owners David and Stephanie Shipley both came from a farming environment and today they use this experience to grow and provide a diverse range of high-quality products including flowers, vegetables, and Christmas trees. They focus on making their customers happy by providing them with nutritious vegetables and bringing nature’s beauty into their homes with fresh-cut flowers. If you are a chef, retailer, or just an individual looking for a grower to fill your needs, feel free to contact them at (336)-384-8269 or support @brvfarm.com. Check out their booth this Tuesday!
