Attitude Adjustment!

There comes a time when you have to start thinking about yourself instead of worrying about others. Both of us have sadly, reached that point. 2016 started out with high hopes for the farmers market. As always, we had ordered all sorts of goodies to giveaway to the kiddos…young and old.

Then came the kick in our guts! Herb’n Renewal was denied membership in the Bluegrass Farmers’ Market. This is a market that we have worked our butts off trying to help each and every farmer…we promoted the market as a whole! If one of us did good, we all did good. Keep the customers engaged and smiling…make it so they want to return each week. We did our best at no expense to the market…we paid for stuff out of our own pocket.

We searched for a location to set up each week and were very thankful to receive three offers. We choose going back to Pedal the Planet and went one Saturday. It was great to see so many of our return customers! But, the comments we received from them concerning our apparent health issues, got us thinking. We’ve spent so much time worrying about the market and helping the farmers that we forgot about ourselves and what is good for us. Well, we are the most important people right now…we are going to be selfish and worry about each other for a change.

So, we have decided that we are not ready to make a commitment to a weekly market right now. Herb’n Renewal is still going strong and we will deliver orders, mail orders…anything that it takes to keep our customers happy. Just give us a holler at 859 548-3516 or email us at

Both of us have various appointments that we hope will start our journey to a healthier life!  Yes, it is attitude adjustment time for both of us!
