Welcome to our "Meet the Makers" series, where we're shining a light on some of our farmers market vendors. In this post, we're getting to know the Boulden family behind Studley Farms. Ashland Farmers Market loves having Studley Farms as a vendor each week. If you haven't had the opportunity to try their products yet, make sure you stop by one Saturday soon!
Where is your farm located?
Studley Farms is based in Studley, a community just north of Mechanicsville. We also have 7 acres on the South Anna River and recently bought another 120 acres in Doswell that we’ll be expanding the farm up to.
How long have you been selling your products at the Ashland Farmers Market?
We’ve been selling locally at other markets for two years but started at this one in 2020.
What products do you offer?
We raise grass-fed beef, heritage breed hogs on dirt, pastured non-GMO chickens, pastured non-GMO ducks, and eggs. We also started selling fresh, homemade jams this year and treats for dogs.
Ashland Farmers Market takes place seasonally May-October on Saturday mornings from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm in front of Ashland Town Hall (121 Thompson Street). Seasonal and winter markets also take place throughout the year, including a Thanksgiving Market the Saturday before Thanksgiving, a Holiday Market the 3rd Saturday in December, and "Renegade Markets" every other Saturday throughout the off-season.
