Murdock Historical Photos
Thank you to John Guehlstorff for the historical photos he found and scanned for our enjoyment.
Grandpa and the twins. What are their names?
Can anyone help out here?
John's Grandpa (Ed) was an avid photographer. He would take photos of any event that went on around Murdock. From family reunions to everyday happenings. When he passed his grandson (John E Guelstorff III) inherited his camera along with his photo processing equipment and all of his negatives. Recently he found some undeveloped negatives of Murdock
For the LOVE of Junk
Now open every Saturday in June!! Satisfy your shopping bug.
Elmwood Farmers Market
What a turnout! What variety.
Karen brought quite the variety, asparagus, salsa, granola bars and chokecherry jam. Yum yum!!
There was spinach, Bib lettuce and blueberry muffins and double berry mini loaves.
Buying local has its advantages. You are supporting locals, AND eating healthier.
We had requests for mint, cinnamon rolls, and yes even more honey. Honeycomb specifically.
We can always use more vendors. More vendors attract more people. More people mean more vendors, more vendors mean more variety!!
More variety means you can do more of your shopping local instead of the "box" stores.
Join our Facebook group and stay up to date on who will be showcasing their produce, baked goods, and other items. Ask if anyone is bringing eggs, honey, cinnamon rolls.
We are NEEDING a Produce Vendor
What does this mean? This is a person who makes a "farmers market" distributor run to pick up produce from "truck farm" wholesalers and then sell it at the Elmwood Farmers Market.
Not everything is in season from our local gardens, but larger produce farms in Nebraska have greenhouses and then route in-season vegetables from other states, Kansas, Oklahoma, etc.
It may not be grown in Elmwood, but it is US and Midwest grown so customers are still buying fresher than in the grocery stores.
We had requests for tomatoes, peppers, and other vegetables.
If you can commit to every Saturday this summer you WILL have customers.
