Vendors of The Farmers Market at Elverson
Farmer: Tom Pyle
Website: There is no chance he is getting one anytime soon.
Tom is a farmer who does not need internet, no time for that technology. He has no website, he’d rather you visit him at his farmsite on Rt. 354. You can’t miss the wagon filled with either flowers or produce on your left heading towards French Creek, just off of Rt. 23.
Aunt Lizzie’s Bakery
Baker: Lizzie Stoltzfus along with her husband Sam and their children.
Website: Too busy baking
They also keep it nice and simple. If time allowed they would bring their horse and buggy to market but instead someone transports every week to market. They have no time for a website. But they do have time to bake and provide wonderfully delicious baked goods for us to enjoy at market. Lizzie and Sam, thank you for not having computer access, stick to the tasty things in life.
Freedom Farm Acres
Farmers: Sam and Esther Fisher
Website: We might see a website from this Amish couple…
They both share a love of the land, their children and the ability to provide their neighbors with nutritious, chemical-free, farm fresh foods.
They own and operate a small farm in Honey Brook where they raise egg layers, pasture-raised broilers, and chemical free vegetables. We sure hope they bring their vegetables along with their chickens and eggs.

“Our animals are pasture raised and finished on a vegetarian diet. We do not feed any animal by-products and most of our feed is homegrown right here on our farm. We do not use any injected or implanted growth hormones or steroids and avoid the use of antibiotics as much as possible. In the rare case that we do use them, the animal is removed from our all-natural program. We work hard to keep our animals healthy and believe that meat from a healthy animal means a better steak dinner for you!”

HOMEMADE COOKIES FOR SALE—THE BRILLIANTLY BIG STORY
Homemade cookies for sale by Big Cookie — the story is like the taste sensation itself. Unexpected. Extraordinary. Decidedly decadent.
They were not concocted by a top chef, a culinary master or a famous bakery. Instead Big Cookies are the handiwork of a civil engineer named Aaron Brilliant — a guy who started baking on a dare, and became fascinated with figuring out how to perfect the right combination of ingredients and baking processes to create the ideal taste sensation.
It all began a few years ago, when Aaron arrived at a Pot Luck dinner with store-bought cookies. After being ridiculed for not bringing something homemade, he arrived at the next get together with a 30-pound vanilla cake he put together from scratch. The cake was so-so, but the process of making it kick-started Aaron’s engineering mind. He was fascinated by figuring out how ingredients, flavors and textures work together. He began experimenting, eventually turning his focus solely to cookies.
His creations were soon legendary. The smell of sugar wafting through the office drew co-workers out of their cubicles. The news that “Aaron brought cookies” created a precipitous drop in productivity. Friends and family begged him to bake. Aaron realized that making cookies was his calling. He quit his engineering job, and set up shop. That’s where he is today, baking Big Cookies and continually tweaking and perfecting his trademark big burst of flavors and textures. Aaron is too humble to claim that he has the best homemade cookies for sale, but others have no problem sharing their thoughts. Feel free to read someBig Cookie reviews and decide for yourself if this civil engineer turned baker has the secret cookie touch!
