We hope everyone is enjoying the warmth of summer and all the delicious veggies from the garden. Almost all the seeds and transplants are in the ground here at the farm. The weeds are under control and plants are in full on growing mode.  Now is a great time to come on out and see the farm.

 We would like to welcome everyone to gather at the farm for a community potluck and farm tour. Let’s get together and celebrate the bounty of the season.

(Traveling North look for the tractor mailbox.  We have a circular drive with parking behind the house.)

 Bring a potkuck dish to share and a plates and utensils for your party.

We’ll provide a large salad, drinks, and napkins.

With the new dynamics of offering multiple sizes and types of shares we are noticing a few logistical challenges.  To help us ensure everyone receives the share they ordered please pay close attention to the following:

 Be sure you get the correct box.  Small shares are in the smaller box.  Salad shares are in the smaller box with the “salad share” label and large shares are in the larger box.  We will aid in identification of the shares by posting signs in the walk-in cooler at the farm.

 If you have someone else pick-up for you, be sure they know what size share to take and let them know to check you name off the list.

At all locations help us track the pick-up by making sure your name is checked off on the list.

If you do not pick-up your share at your designated location we will label your box with your name and return it to the farm pick-up location. Please be aware that after market it may take until the following morning to arrive at the farm pick-up location.  We will keep it stored in the cooler at the production location.   Please call if you need to make other arrangements.  All unclaimed shares will be available to pick-up at the farm until Tuesday evening.

Thanks to everyone for your attention to these details.  We appreciate your participation in the shares and hope awareness of these details will keep everything running smoothly.
