Last Kenton Farmer’s Market for 2017

October 4, 2017
Bethel Springs Farm at the last Kenton Farmers Market for 2017

Last Wednesday was the last Kenton Farmer’s Market for 2017. We enjoyed being at the market this year, as we have connections to North Portland. Steven grew up near Killingsworth and Interstate and attended Ockley Green. I taught at Beach Elementary School for 13 years. Steven’s parents live near Columbia Park. While we moved a distance away to farm more land, it feels good to come back to the neighborhood. We want to thank everyone who came to the market. It was great to meet you and chat, when we had the chance. We appreciated the opportunity to grow vegetables for you. We hope to see you again and get to know you better next year!

Our farm stand, Bethel Farm Stand, is open now on Saturdays from noon to 4 pm. It is a half mile north of our farm, at 7575 Bethel Rd, Rickreall, OR 97371 (a mile or so east of 99W). As long as the weather holds, we’ll keep it open through October….the weather forecast looks good for the next two Saturdays! If you are missing Bethel Springs Farm vegetables and are in the area, we hope you’ll stop by!

Meanwhile, back at the farm, we are still working on getting all the dry beans harvested. We are thankful for a few more days of dry weather and hope they hold on until we are done. The pole barn is almost finished now. The concrete floor was poured and the rest of the sides are up. Just the big, vehicle doors are left. Parts are ordered and they should be installed in another week and a half. We may start storing a few things before it is done!
