Merry Christmas from Maize Valley

Merry Christmas from Maize Valley

Greetings once again from Farmer Bill the FunTSAR at Maize Valley! It has been a long time since I sat down and entered the blogosphere on a regular basis but I hope to be back now that I have more time to sit down and report on what we have been doing at Maize Valley. I have shot lots of videos about what has happened throughout the year and believe or not we are pretty busy right now getting ready for next years growing season.

This is the season of giving, but also thanking. We have put our farmers’ market produce trucks to work decorating them for the holiday season and welcoming guests as they enter our market and tasting room.

Breakfast with Santa is sold out with well over 225 guests set to sit on Santa’s lap and pass along their wishes, or at least get a photo with him. Gift baskets are rolling out strong, thanks to all the great folks who chose Maize Valley to be a part of their holiday giving. We are adding new dinner specials for weekend evenings starting now and going all winter and beyond. New events coming up for next year include a “winemakers dinner” new appetizer, entrees’ and more!

My 52' IS part of the family

My 52' IS part of the family

I like to find old things and give them new life. The house we live in my wife’s grandfather was born in, my 65′ Chevy came home from Arizona and no one loved it (it did look pretty rough, and my wife said “you want to fix that?”), and when I found a 1952 Ford F5 in a warehouse on the West Side of Cleveland a few years ago I could not pass it up.

My brother Tim went to look at it and it had 3434 original miles on it, original tires with probably original air in them too. She was covered in boxes and buried under picnic tables, garden hoses and had a big ole’ snow plow hanging on her front bumper. All the guys looking for a street rod were not interested in her so I took her home and gave her a new life.

She does parades, hauls produce, pulls trailers and now then we throw a couple of bales on the back let the kids climb on board and sneak out and get ice cream in her too! So if one is good two must be better right, wellllllll we are still working on that on. Here are few videos of this winters projects running into spring! Look for them at a farmers’ market near you!!

Hope you enjoy looking at them, look for more news as we get them ready to hit the road.
