We had so much fun conceptualizing and creating our Grumpy Grizzly Store in 2012. I thought I’d take you on a journey through pictures as we built the store. We are so blessed with family and friends who have supported us as a dream became a reality. My husband Corey is a fabulous craftsman and a master at using scraps of material to make useful pieces. We are thrilled with how the store turned out and we can’t wait to fill it up with produce from this years garden!

Roadside Stand Series: Allen and Richardson Farm Stand

Posted in Preserving, Roadside Stand Series on October 16, 2012 by grumpygrizzlyfarms

I stumbled upon Allen and Richardson Farm Stand passing through Martinsville, Indiana. I was welcomed by a charming, energetic, and fabulous 74 year young woman named Barbara. Barbara’s father had a small garden for his growing family. Her father, Charlie, had no intentions of selling his bounty but the local dentist changed that quickly. Charlie went in to see his dentist and they struck up a conversation about the garden. While discussing what wonderful things he was growing in the garden, the dentist asked if Charlie would mind growing some for him. People just started showing up requesting fresh produce from Charlie and that was the beginning of the farm stand. Barbara started working at the stand when she was 6 years old and has been a part of it ever since then. Her son Perry now grows all of their produce. Barbara said her favorite part of the stand has been getting to meet all of the people that visit from all over the country. It was an honer to spend time getting to know Barbara. Her wish for her community is for more young people to understand the importance of eating fresh food and more parents leading by example.

Allen and Richardson Farms stand is located at 749 Morton Ave. Martinsville, Indiana.
