One of my favorite places to visit during spring and fall is The Garden Patch and Pelly’s Farm Fresh Market in Smith’s Grove, Ky. They are conveniently located just a few minutes off I-65 Exit 38 to the west and if you are an antique lover, be sure and check out the historic antique district in Smith’s Grove.
Esli and David Pelly have transformed their family farm into a delightful family destination for flowers, plants, produce, local food products, arts and crafts and primitive antiques. In the fall they go all out with several great events that always draw a crowd.
Join them Sept 22 for “Fun on the Farm” for scarecrow making (bring your own clothes and accessories – $7), fun for the children, and all their fall decorations for sale including pumpkins of all kinds and colors, gourds, wreaths, pansies, mums, kale and cabbage and lots of antiques and vintage scraps.
October 13 is their annual Old Fashioned Farm Days where you can watch folks demonstrating old timey farm crafts. Find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Garden-Patch/71848244776 and look for their ad in the Busy Bee Trader with all their latest information. They are located at 1085 Hayes-Smith Rd. in Smith’s Grove, Ky., and their phone # is 270-563-3411.
