The F.A.R.M.

The F.A.R.M. stands for Family Anderson Roadside Market. The name says it all. We have four children, whom are very involved in everything we do, from planting, watering, picking and even talking to our customers. We like doing things as a family. We own an acre of ground in Alexandria, where we have a home bakery and a roadside stand. Here is where we grow some of our produce. We also grow produce in other locations, it all adds up to about 4 to 5 acres. Some of the things we grow are strawberries, beans, tomatoes, corn, peppers, etc. This year we are adding pigs, beef, and turkeys to our flock of chickens.

One thought on “Market Vendors

  1. Ross & Carol King

    We just now thawed out and ate a cherry Crumb Pie labelled from Family Anderson Roadside Market that we bought in a grocery store somewhere between Altoona and Bald Eagle State Park in early September. It was simply terrific in every detail — crust, filling taste, size, value …

    The label on the does not list a website for F.A.R.M, so we are using the coop website. Your operation sounds a bit like ours, or like ours used to be. You have 4 children, we had 3. You deal in food, we build organs. Our shop was at our house until the boys were about jr high age.

    The occasion for our trip to Pennsylvania was to meet our middle son and his family, who live in Brooklyn. The Lodge at Bald Eagle State Park was the ideal place to spend a week.

    I’m sure that your operation requires a tremendous amount of work. Believe me, I understand. All I have to say is, “Be of good cheer.” The kids 30 years later will be able to look back on a glorious heritage. The pie was wonderful, too.
