Farmers and producers alike once again gathered in Rockmart for what became a vibrant display of crisp produce, farm-raised meat, and delectable sweets.
Between displays of food, however, sat an intriguing booth by Footehills Farm. Boasting not only popcorn made from actual Cherokee popping corn, Footehills Farm presented one of a kind soaps, lip balms, bath salts, and various oils.
All of Footehills Farm’s goods are hand crafted by vendor Louanna Hughes using only the finest natural ingredients produced directly by Footehills.
Patrons can purchase creative products such as Olive Oil face wash, goat milk soap, Cedarwood beard oil, chocolate mint lip balm, or Lemon Zest bath salts for as little as $3 to $7 dollars.
The variety of products and ingredients are likely to meet any customers needs.
Centered in Taylorsville, Foothill Farms is a family owned farm operated by Louanna and Erin Hughes. The Hughes goal is to provide healthy food that anyone can afford. No chemicals are ever used when growing their vegetation, and Footehills goats are kept healthy by frequent relocation and a herbal wormer.
Aside from foods and soaps, Footehills also sells lumber and provides educational courses on food preservation.
The Hughes have only been attending the Rockmart Farmers Market for about three weeks now, but the Hughes healthy approach to farming and unique products are certainly promising.
Find this vendor and many other hardworking farmers at the local farmers market every Thursday from 2 to 6 p.m. on Rockmart’s Water Street.
