25 Mile Market was created in 2020 amidst the pandemic crisis. Created by three women farmers, with lifelong connections and dreams of providing their community with the best local produce 25 Mile Market was born out of a lesson in community. In the midst of very real life changes, one founder became overwhelmed with the amount of work her land required. The offers by her sister-farmers to help maintain her land and support her during this time we astounding. Like many women of our culture of isolation and busyness, all help was declined. When she was finally able to get outside again, she was overwhelmed with the overgrowth in her garden beds. In exasperation, she reached out to her sister-farmers and explained she was prideful, but that she now saw the need for help. Within days, the sister-farmers collaborated and arrived ready to work on her land. Together the three worked one day and were able to accomplish goals beyond the expectation. Since then, the three sister-farmers take turns on each other's land in collaboration and have helped each other learn and grow. 25 Mile Market was born in the garden beds of these sister-farmers. This connection was the creation point of wanting to provide this type of support to other local farmers, and to connect them with community members. Founded by experts in business, community and culture building, these sister-farmers have over 30 years of combined growing and making experience, three tractors and nearly 9 acres of land they work. 25 Mile Market is a true testament to the power of community - it's where it was born and where it will serve.
