Jason & Stefanie Sarine
Humble Hen Farm & Nursery is a grower of fine perennial plants catering specifically
to discerning collectors.
We focus on shade loving varieties but also have a wide selection to choose from. While primarily a mail order nursery, we are now bringing
choice plants to market for local customers
Quality is paramount in everything we sell,
so expect nothing but perfection when you
take home a Humble Hen perennial.
Humble Hen is veteran owned and was started
by Jason and Stefanie Sarine in 2016.
Looking for a quieter life and one closer to nature, we made the full time shift to the nursery in 2022. Devoting all of our time to the plants allows us to produce a premium quality that our customers won't find from big box stores.
Ballard Soap Company
Ballard Soap Company is a small family business from Salem, VA. We started the business as a hobby and were making party favors for family events such as Gender Reveals and Baby Showers. Since then, we have taken our hobby and turned it into a fun business.
We make beautiful soaps that are not your average bar of soap. Our soap has skin loving ingredients for all skin types.
We also enjoy making candles and wax melts
out of 100 % Beeswax.
You can find all of our bath products and candles the first and third Thursday of each month here at the Catawba Farmers Market.

Darlene is the Public Services Coordinator for Roanoke County Public Library and is working on developing an outreach program for the library system. After hearing that residents of the Catawba area desire library services, she thought attending the Catawba Valley Farmers Market might be a good first step. It will allow the library to both share the services that are already offered and to get to know the community in order to learn what services would be of value to them. They plan to bring books and activities for all ages. They can register people for library cards so they can check out materials and be able to use the library's online resources. They will also have a useful gift for anyone who stops by to visit them.
