Candace Lately: SFS Farms

19596669212_9cfc755b88_h

SFS Farms was one of the last vendors I hit up while at the Morgantown Farmers Market recently. As per usual, I chatted with Lisa to find out more about this farm, which sells vegetables, melons and fresh herbs.

SFS farm is run by mother daughter team, Susie (mom) and Heidi (daughter) Shinkovich. Susie is the farmer and Heidi does the paperwork. Susie has been farming and marketing her entire life. She can tell you stories of being 7 years old and selling on the morgantown courthouse square with her family, which I believe she still does to this day. Local to the Morgantown area and Monongalia county, farming is strong in this family. If you stop by the farmers market take a look at Susie’s beautiful farmer hands – they know what it is to work hard! Within the past few years, they received a NRCS high tunnel to help extend their season, so you’ll now see them every weekend at the market throughout the summer selling a variety vegetables and potted plants.
