Say hello to the Ornery Onion Company!

This is a bit of a late announcement but Eve and I have formally created (thanks to the inspiration and prodding of reality TV show producer Darryl Silver) the Ornery Onion Company.

We also have an Instagram page:

Why did we need to do this? Thanks mainly to an inordinate amount of onions dumped into my markets from Canada during the 2019-2020 season I was unable to sell my crop in a timely fashion and I lost roughly $100,000. I simply could not continue to grow onions on a commercial basis (see the links at the bottom of the page).

Our goal is to one day fresh grown farm products via direct marketing. We are starting small but hope to see how things develop. We have also created a logo and a fun and quite funny merchandise line. Most of our merchandise can be found on our Teespring page.

You will find a number of different sayings in a number of different styles, including tees, hoodies, baby wear and masks! And if you see a saying or expression but not in the shirt style or color you’d like let us know and we can design it and get it up on the page!

So please check out our merchandise … get some of it and share it with friend and foe alike … don’t get mad … get Ornery … Ornery Onion merch that is!
