Farm stand now open

River Run Farm has opened a farm stand at 2800 Woodcock Rd., across from Woodcock Demonstration Garden, to provide certified organic produce directly to the community. Founded by “young farmers with a passion for growing quality vegetables and community,” the farm is in its fourth year of business, owners say. Fall hours are 10 a.m.-dark, Wednesday through Saturday. Buying bulk quantities of the farm stand vegetables for home canning, juicing or fermenting projects can be arranged via the e-mail address posted at the stand.

River Run Farm is enrolling members for its 2017 Fall Farmshare program which runs for seven weeks beginning Oct. 9. Learn more about the farm at riverrun.farm, on Facebook and/or and Instagram.
