The Dancing Goat, Tampa, Florida

Pam Lunn, Farmer

We are a small family urban farm offering free range eggs and raw goat milk products including milk, cheeses, kefir and yogurt from our own animals. We avoid chemicals on the farm and our animals are treated as family members first, and then food producing animals. We also carry raw cow milk products from Jersey Acres Farm as a service to our customers that wish cow products as well. Be sure to try our artisan cold process goat milk soaps from all natural ingredients and essential oils!

Variety is the spice of life and at our booth, variety in eggs is the norm. Quail eggs, pheasant eggs, banty eggs (miniature chickens with very big attitudes) and pullet eggs can often be found complimenting the free range chicken eggs in many pastel colors!

We are so grateful to all the wonderful folks at Sweetwater for providing us this marketing opportunity for the past six years and making us feel like “part of the family”. We appreciate each and every customer that has walked in our booth and feel truly blessed to know you!  Thank you for your patronage!

Little Pond Farm

Cole Turner, Farmer

Little Pond Farm is located in Bushnell, where we farm to enrich the land and its human and animal inhabitants. We focus on building our soil, giving back to our fields, and growing as much healthy, honest food as possible with no chemicals or synthetic inputs. We follow organic standards and permaculture principles to create beauty, abundance, and long term sustainability. In our first year, we are learning to save our seed to create diverse locally adapted vegetable varieties, as well as planting legume and fruit trees turning the bank of our pond to a thriving orchard and forest of food.

20 Shekels Bread, Clearwater/Largo, Florida

Marni Atherton, Owner

20 Shekels is a Tampa Bay bakery founded with the simple idea that nutritious bread should be eaten not because it’s healthy, but because it tastes good.

This is our baby, our passion, our love. We’d like to say it all started with a dream, but alas it was not so. We’re a little too piratey for such things. Instead, it went like this:

“Twenty bucks says you can’t make a bread that’s good for you AND tastes great.”

And in the fervor of a 10-year-old shouting out “CHALLENGE!!”, the game was afoot. Now after many moons, burnt fingers and loud expletives, we’re proud to present what we feel is the healthiest, finest, best tasting bread on the market today.

Made entirely from the highest quality, most nutritious, organic ingredients available.

Enjoy.

We also offer consultation or what I like to call “garden coaching”, full veggie garden installs and planning. If you just need a bit of advice, come by our tent. Or, if you just need a little help around the yard to wrap up projects, we do that too.
