Powder Keg Farms is pleased to participate in Mountaineer Community Health Center’s FARMacy Program. From July to October, we will be delivering 30 baskets of produce for the program to distribute.
We’ll also have a farm stand in their pavilion on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with our goods available for sale to the general public. The address is 783 Winchester Street in Paw Paw.
Come by and see us!
Powder Keg Farms is proud to be a part of the West Virginia Grown program. Farmer/producers may use the West Virginia Grown logo after they have qualified through the WV-Grown Authorization Program. The program assures a farm’s products are of the highest quality and meet the requirements of being a value added product. Value added products may be totally grown or produced in West Virginia (or may have at least 50 percent of the total value added by further processing).
We love our greens, and our customers do too! Watch this fun little video to see how we get them ready for eating.
Feeling privileged to participate in Wreaths Across America today. The organization coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at more than 1,600 locations across the United States, at sea and abroad. Today, I am in Indiana laying wreaths in Concord Cemetery, which is southwest of my hometown of Churubusco. This is my first Wreaths Across America, and it is emotional. There are only about twenty of us at this tiny cemetery in the middle of cornfields, and no ancestors of our own. It is powerful to remember and to honor the sacrifices these and other soldiers and their families made. They gave their lives for our freedoms, freedoms which I try hard not take for granted. I am counting my blessings today and every day.
This is wildly creative... Laura, a shareholder, recently shared about a birthday cake she made. Since the recipient avoids sugar, the frosting was made with a 50-50 mixture of PKF mashed squash and cream cheese! It looks delicious and seems like a genius idea! What do you do with your squash?
Powder Keg Farms’ produce was featured this past Saturday in the Mountain Top Farm to Table Dinner at Durgon Farms. Hosted by New Biz Launchpad at Eastern WV Community & Technical College Foundation, dinner was prepared by Chef Marion Ohlinger for over 100 folks. It was fun to see how the chef utilized our ingredients for this seven-course meal—and the views of wonderful West Virginia from the mountain top of this Moorefield farm were simply spectacular. We were glad to be there representing PKF along with a few other friends of the farm. #PKF #FarmtoTable #EasternWVCTCFoundation #WV
Just some wholesome food-lovin’ farmers sharing about life on the farm.
