Nourishing Change at Three Rivers Market

Beardsley Farm is honored to be the August Nourishing Change recipient at Three Rivers Market! All throughout the month of August, you can round your change up at checkout at Three Rivers, and the extra change goes directly to the farm. We're using the money the build an enclosure and expand upon our bee habitat! Bees help to pollinate about 1/3 of our earth's food. Help us help the bees thrive by shopping a little extra at the market this month!
