THREE SISTERS AT MEADOWLOWN
-Krystle, Eric, Amy, Idabelle and Merope Williams
Three Sisters at Meadowlown’s name comes from their three daughters and the original name given to their property back in 1923, when the home was built. “Three Sisters” also comes from a planting method that helps plants naturally thrive together. The Three Sisters at Meadowlown offer eggs from a variety of chickens, cherry tomatoes of all colors, squashes and they are hoping to offer okra. Krystle considers the farmer’s market a rewarding venture. She describes herself as being a giving person and would rather trade and share than buy products. She also enjoys knowing what her family is eating and where it came from. Something that is unique about the Three Sisters at Meadowlown is they try to use natural methods as much as possible. They use companion planting, pest-deterring flowers, native pollinator plants nearby, organic fertilizers and pest reducing methods instead of using a lot of chemicals.
