We had a great time today at the pop up A Day For Us market for women and minority run businesses! The organizers did a great job and turnout was fabulous despite the cold weather. Also, it supported a good cause – we and other vendors contributed 15% of our sales to the Virginia Anti Violence Project. You can donate here.
We also have to give a huge thank you to our friends and family who came out to support us and the other vendors. It was great to break from this cold weather and get to see so many smiling faces. We would have nothing without our friends and family. They also watched the kids for us so we could get down to the business of vending.

Thanks to our friends at the Acevedo Homestead for giving us a tip on how to move our hogs. Food on a stick does the trick to get Penne and Alfredo our 2 American Guinea Hogs moved from our garden where they had been doing some tilling for us, back to their pen in the woods.
