know your food know your farmer meet k&K Farms:
K&K Farms is a 350 acre farm located in Mount Savage, MD. Owners Kayla Melkovics and Kaitlin Rossignulo operate K&K Farm as a flourishing produce farm on their family property. As young children, Kayla and Kaitlin spent their days with their grandmother learning to garden and preserving their harvest, which cultivated their passion for food production. After spending their youth learning the art of gardening, their endeavors are now fruitful for the farmers’ market patron. K&K Farms’ market booth explodes with an abundance of tomatoes, zucchinis, butternut squash, cucumbers, peppers, radishes, potatoes, green beans, mulberries, blackberries, cherries, apples, watermelon, corn, pumpkins, and free-range eggs. In addition to produce, K&K Farms offers baked goods. A Pinterest worthy Mason jar pie is among their popular farmers’ market treats, made with a fluffy pie pastry, filled with fresh berries, and served in a mini Mason jar lid. The female owned and operated farm holds a bright future for the young entrepreneurs. They plan to expand their farm to include more baked goods and fresh bread. Visit K&K Farms on the Downtown Cumberland mall, on Thursdays, from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm or City Place in Frostburg, on Fridays, from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm.
