Jane Marie Watts
Jane Marie’s family has lived and farmed in northern Woodford County for at least eight (8) generations. Jane Marie is an agrarian who enjoys hunting, gathering & fishing; driving draft horses; and chopping wood/carrying water. She lives with her husband, Brad Slutskin, on the banks of the Kentucky River at the site of the historic Watts Ferry river crossing.
Rebecca comes to us from Scott Co were she has lived for the past 25 years. You may see her assisting with the farmers market on Sundays. She will often be sharing stories of her chickens as she learns their ways. Rebecca also enjoys finding ways to increase her knowledge of sustainable living. Ask her about it sometime.
Beth has lived in Woodford County since 2016. She is the very honored mother of three wonderful women, Haley, Michaelle and Tess. She works for the Kentucky School Boards Association in Frankfort. Her past times are dabbling in arts and crafts, reading, watching movies, singing (mostly to herself) drinking good bourbon and taking care of critters at home. Living on a farm creates the best environment for her to often take countryside walks and observe birds and other wildlife. She is excited about how the Millville Community Market can grow, while supporting and reaching out to the local community as well as those who wander upon us. Although not a gardener, Beth has always had an admiration of gardeners and farmers, quoting Wendell Berry, “We have neglected the truth that a good farmer is a craftsman of the highest order. A kind of artist."
Shelli grew up in northern Kentucky until she came to Frankfort where she has lived for about 15 years with her amazing, loving husband Kelly and two young children: Colin & Hayden. They always were attracted to the Millville community and when the opportunity came to give back to it with the Market they have been involved ever since. Come and visit and you're likely to find the kids and their friends bringing joy to all in attendance.
