A Southern Marketplace Barn Sale
By Molly Cooper
A weekend on the farm can mean many things, but when Acres of Grace Farms hosts it’s A Southern Marketplace Barn Sale twice a year, it is so much more.
First, we invite you to be a part of our farm and home tours that happen through out both days of the barn sale. On the farm you will see implements ranging from the 1800’s to present day machines. You are able to step back and appreciate how hard our families worked to leave the legacy they have and see how our technology’s have taken farming to a whole different level. Our tours will then take you to see a home unlike any other. We partner with Honest Abe Log Homes to explore a newly built log home for the farm owners Nick and April Patterson. There you will see a new log profile, a round log with a Swedish Cope, built to withstand all elements mother nature throws its way and once you step in side and see all the different design elements, you’ll want to take them into your own home.
After the tour is over, you will step off the bus and be ready to shop, explore and most importantly, eat! It is nothing short of remarkable, different artisan’s and unique vendors displaying a wide range of products and special finds all in one perfect location. Antique shops bring things you can only wish to have and folks who take honey or milks and other elements from their farms and turn it into incredible goods you just can’t help but buy. Not to mention, the food, it is amazing. There are no two alike, with an assortment from home cooked comfort foods to hamburgers and BBQ and if that isn’t enough, we have ice cream, we have homemade macaroons, we have fresh baked breads and cupcakes, we have jellies and salsas, we simply have it all. While you are shopping and eating with us, we want you to truly enjoy yourselves, listen to the live music and just take everything in we have to offer. Just across the road we are also hosting a Car Show Cruise in and swap meet for the guys. Only during our fall sale, we offer a farm to table dinner where we gather and harvest from local farmers. A variety of meats and produce are taken and prepared just for you. We take the proceeds from the dinner and give back to the community through our local Young Farmers and Ranchers organization.
We started the barn sale with hope of bringing people together and displaying countless items where there is something for everyone to enjoy. So come, slow down with us on the third weekends in May and October each year and relish in all that A Southern Marketplace has to offer.
