Locally grown and locally made items featured at new store in Corfu
It used to be "The Barn," today it's The Farm, and it's now open on Route 77 in Corfu, stocked full of local produce and locally made products.
Renee Franclemont said she opened the store with her family because she's always liked country items.
"I love the warm feeling," Franclemont said.
The store carries all kinds of decorative and useful items for the home, including handmade wood items created by Renee and her father, Richard Franclemont.
As for fruits and vegetables, what isn't grown on the The Farm is bought from local growers. Renee's partner, Clinton Konfaderath, has years of experience in the produce business.
Right now, the store has large selection of pumpkins, mums and cornstalks for fall decorating.
Most of the retail items for sale are handmade and in the country primitive style. There are also candles and potpourri.
The store will be open daily through Christmas from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
I am very happy for you and your family on your new store!!!!! It looks so nice I can not wait to stop by and bring all my friends. I wish you well and I hope you have a great year! We need more things like this to open up around here so we do not have to drive so far to get our craft fix.
