Despite receiving considerable damage to their own farm in Royalton, Rachel and Jim Bigelow brought extra vegetables to the Market’s “Got Extra?” collection on Tuesday, September 6.
Rachel and Jim have been steady supporters of the “Got Extra?” program this summer, donating tens of pounds of fresh, locally grown garden vegetables. The Market, in turn, has delivered them to local food pantries for further distribution.
Thank you, Rachel and Jim, for your generous hearts and hands.
A note to anyone looking for sweet corn in quantity (to freeze, for example): Bigelow Farm’s sweet corn survived the flood and is ready to go. They have it in quantity. Sale of the sweet corn will help to offset their loss of field corn (winter feed for their dairy cattle).
