Melon Mania

As this newsletter goes out the crew is still harvesting, trying to get ready for the tuesday pick-up. We have reached the point in the season where we have very little time to anything else but harvest! The timing is right as we have our last seedlings/transplantings of the year this week which consist of mostly greens. The weather is great to work in but we could surely use a little rain…

Watermelon and cantaloupe in abundance this week. Try as we do to stager these crops so that they won’t come in at the same time…Just in time for the holiday weekend!?

Pork and Lamb for Your Freezer

We are taking orders starting this week for custom pork and lamb . This is a great way to put quality local meat in your freezer.  These are our own animals, raised here at the farm and processed how you like by our butcher. This is a great deal to put high quality, non- factory raised meat in your freezer this winter. Bacon, ham, sausage, chops, roasts and ribs all processed and packed as you like. Neighbors and families can whole of halves. Ask for an order form and talk to us at pick-up for more details.

Labor on Labor Day

Each year at this time we celebrate the transition to fall with our annual Labor on Labor Day Potato Harvest Party.  This coming Monday, September 2nd, from 9am to 12pm in the fields along Pleasant Hill Road we will harvest our potato crop. Come join us at any point that morning.This has come to be a favorite event for CSA members of all ages.  We’ll be picking up spuds that our harvesting machine has already dug from the soil. Last year was a bumper crop and we were able to bring in over 14,000 pounds in a little over 2 hours with the help of about fifty folks! If you’re looking for something fun to do before the barbecues and picnics get rolling in the afternoon come out and jump in with us. Look for us (and the tractors and trucks) along the north side of Pleasant Hill Road and  park where you can.   Or better yet ride your bike!
