Feature a Farmer: Baldwin Farms
Margery Baldwin is a farmer at Baldwin Farms here in Richmond, Kentucky. You can find her at the Madison County Farmers Market every Thursday on EKU campus, and the Bluegrass Farmers Market in Lexington on Saturday mornings and Tuesday afternoons. Fresh produce at the markets will vary according to what is ripening at the farm. Garden produce includes tomatoes, squash, green peppers, watermelon, kale, strawberries, beans, and so much more. Margery’s favorite items are tomatoes and corn, because they grow and sell the most! Her favorite food is a simple tomato sandwich. Her special recipe is bread, vine ripe tomatoes from her garden, salt, and the most important ingredient, Hellmann’s mayo. The most fun thing on her farm is the pumpkin patch, which takes place every day from September 25-October 30. At the pumpkin patch they have pony rides for kids, farm animal viewings, corn mazes, barrel cart rides, and many other activities for the family.
