This morning I went to fill gallon jugs from Bear Lithia Spring, in Elkton, VA. It was so hot and humid, however I have been wanting to ask the owners permission that has the farm and farm stand next to the spring if I could take pictures of their stand and produce. The answer was yes.
The Farm Stand is owned and operated by Craig & Dreanna Becker, a very nice Mennonite couple. It is nice to go to the spring hand be able to get produce at the same time. Since I have done merchandising at various jobs I have had over the years, good merchandising always captures my attention and Craig & Drenna have done such a good job in a small space.
Along with produce, and Farm Fresh Eggs, at their farm stand they have home baked goods, sweet rolls, breads, pies, and more. You can place orders ahead of time for pick up at a specified time. It truly is one of the nicest little farm produce stands I have seen in the area.
To get to their Farm Stand, you take Rt. 340 North from Elkton or 340 South from Shenandoah to Bear Lithia Springs Baptist Church, the Lane(Bear Lithia Spring Road) to the springs is beside the church property, (there are signs) at the road advertising the produce at the farm stand. there is parking for the farm stand at the stand, seperate parking for the water trucks at the spring.
The Farm Stand is shaded by trees as well as pleasently surrounded by this lovely species of Viburnum bushes which sets the beautiful berries which turn red in the autumn. Here you can see them slowly changing.
