.Have you visited the Stubbs Family Farm stand at the Webster Street Market? If so, then you have seen the wonderful farm fresh produce, baked goods, eggs and meats that are available at that location on Saturdays between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m.
You may not realize, however, that the Stubbs Family Farm stand (the big wagon with the cheerful red and white striped awning) also visit locations in the community. On Tuesday afternoons from noon to 6 p.m., the Stubbs Family Farm brings their farm stand and their fresh produce to the corner of Wilmington and Patterson Road in Dayton; on Fridays they visit the Dayton VA between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturdays they visit the Germantown farm market behind the library in Germantown (stop by and see them tomorrow on your way to the Germantown Pretzel festival) and on Tuesdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m they show up at the Germantown Senior Center (Tuesdays are very busy for the Stubbs Family Farm). On Thursdays they go all the way south to Middletown to the Middletown Shopping Center between noon and 6 p.m.! Whew!
A large, vibrantly orange pumpkin serves as the seasonal ‘welcome’ sign, and current offerings at the farm stand include several varieties of winter squash, a couple of varieties of potatoes, onions, tomatoes, apples, pumpkins, mums and more. Breads, pies and cookies are baked in the farm kitchen and brought along, and cage free, hormone-free eggs are also available. Stubbs gives no hormones or growth stimulators to their cows and chickens, and uses antibiotics only if necessary for the health of the animal (they've not needed to use any antibiotics for several years now).
And the staff is friendly! Dayton is blessed with a wealth of farm markets and farm stands in our area, so you might as well deal with a friendly vendor, right? The story of Stubbs farm began in 1977; the birth of their son Jacob in 1987 created Stubbs Family Farm. Jacob farms with the family today, helping them bring the freshest and highest quality produce from their farm to your table. Most of the produce is picked the morning before they bring it to market, and the Stubbs stand displays some of the more beautiful produce in the area and their cart is the always beautifully arranged.
Visit the Stubbs Family Farm stand at the Webster Street Market at the corner of East Third Street and Webster Street on Saturdays, or at any one of their many locations in and around the Miami Valley.
