With our new partner, SKY Farmer’s Market we’ve decided to look at each of the local vendors you can shop from. To be honest, some businesses have a hard time finding great produce from some of the big food companies. Still, many of the restaurants we cover use O’Daniel Farms.

The great thing we noticed at the farmer’s markets this past Saturday was the great following O’Daniel Farms has with their customers. Which says a lot. That’s why last year when WKU Public Radio did their feature on O’Daniel Farm we were excited.  After the WKU Public Radio story we went to O’Daniel Farm’s website and signed up for his emails.

Weekly, Joe O’Daniel sends out an email to everyone about what is available this week. So Sign up and get clued in. O’ Daniel Farms is a family owned and operated business. It consists of a 116 acre farm located on the Barren River six miles outside of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Joe and Debbie O’Daniel and their four daughters grow fresh vegetables, grass finished Angus beef, pastured poultry, pastured pork, free range eggs and vegetable transplants. All of their crops are grown naturally without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides with the exception of our asparagus, which has an herbicide only.

We look forward to working with the Farmer’s Market this season. Check them out online. Fan SKY Farmer’s Market on facebook. SKY Farmers Market is open Tuesday 7am till 1pm and Saturday 7am till noon.  Located at 5th and High Streets on The Medical Center Campus this years market will feature all the old vendors plus several new vendors as well.
