Have you looked back at the last year and assessed your progress?
We have just closed the books for 2021 at the Farm Fresh Mercantile (also known as “The Merc”). In December 2016, we began to transform a storage shed into a small mercantile. It became real in 2017 with periodic openings while we still attended our local farmer’s market every Saturday.
Since that time, we have faced many challenges, especially the last two years. We learned that adversity will either break you or make you stronger. All of you, our fans, followers, and customers helped raise us up in the tough seasons.
2021 was our first season totally on the farm. We did not attend any farmer’s markets, festivals, or other outlets. It was a scary decision. Would anyone make the trip “off the beaten path” for our products?
You did. People came from far and wide to visit our Mercantile and attend our events. We hosted Karaoke, Doty and Dexter, and the Luna Halos for music in the crib. Produce sold out every week as did scones or English muffins.
You made 2021 our best year by far.
Thank you for believing in a couple of crazy gals and supporting Five Feline Farm.
We look forward to serving you in 2022!
