This week at the farm market…

Patrick and Peggy Bekker of Belmont purchase a Father’s Day treat of Gourmet Jerky from Rockford Farm Market vendor Kathy Bueche. From their state-certified kitchen in Marne, Mich., Gourmet Jerky, a long-time Rockford market vendor, uses beef, pork, chicken, deer, elk and buffalo to produce an amazing variety of flavored jerky.
