Sunny Lea Farms takes pride in organic products and practices
From gardeners to market vendors, Callie Bagley and her family have been selling fresh produce at the Owensboro Regional Farmers’ Market for two years.
“My mom always had a huge garden, and it kind of transformed until we had so much more, so we decided to start selling,” Bagley said.
It can be difficult for small businesses like Sunny Lea Farms to find a good place to sell their produce, but the Farmers’ Market proved to be the perfect place for Bagley and his family.
“It’s the best place for us. We tried to settle in our little hometown, but we just had cars going by and nobody ever really stopped,” Bagley said. “Here we normally sell out within hours.”
Not only is the farmers’ market good for their business, but Bagley also enjoys having the opportunity to be part of the environment, saying she loves “the people and the energy.”
Sunny Lea Farms prides itself on the quality of its organic baked goods and vegetables and the way it takes care of its regenerative farm.
“To me, regenerative agriculture leaves better soil than you found it,” Bagley said. “We use organic practices, we don’t use any herbicides or pesticides in our garden and we don’t till.”
Being a “no-till” farm really makes a difference, as over-tilling land over time can lead to infertile land.
