The Cottage Farm Stand Bringing Community Together Over Coffee, Confection, & Conversation (PHOTOS)
The Cottage Farm Stand is fairly new to Owensboro but the house has been in the family for generations. Marlena Knight and her husband, David own Knight farms on Highway 56. It's a delightful old farmhouse that will offer so much more than just coffee and confection when it opens to the community.
Marlena has wanted to bring the community closer together. What better way to a person's heart than through good conversation and yummy treats.
The Cottage is part of the family farm and once they open the doors to the public will have a full espresso bar, offer breakfast sandwiches, and those yummy mini muffins in egg cartons. Right now they have a farm stand from 7a-5p daily.
Angel here and my first experience with The Cottage was a few weeks ago when Charlotte and I took a trip to the Owensboro Regional Farmer's Market on Saturday morning. We got there early because as they say "The early bird gets the mini muffins" I was on the hunt. We literally got the last carton.
They come in an assortment and single flavors and alone I could eat about six cartons not even kidding. I also bought a jar of bread and butter pickles that I opened as soon as I got to the car and did not share it with anyone else.
When they are at the farmer's market they have a variety of goodies from homemade granola, muffins, canned pickles, beets, locally ground coffee, sandwiches, and cookies.
Right now they have a beautiful field of sunflowers and many have visited to take photos. The sunflowers will not be around much longer so if you would like to take pictures make plans to head out that way. Picking sunflowers is just $1 a stem.
