...This is Communtiy Supported Agriculture Sept 15 Harvest Kickoff! More info to come
Here is your weekly reminder and farm report set your reminders to come and pickup fresh produce....
*Officially save the date for a fun night of Music & Food September 15! Come to the 2019 Harvest Kickoff! this event is to celebrate all the work and workers in our Ag community if you grow produce, hemp, hay, livestock we are all in the main harvest season and us farmers like to work hard and play hard. But we need a pressure relief valve and we are so happy to collaborate with our partners at Pressed Coffee and Wine House this year. Its nice to have their support as we needed some help. I also think it will be fun to celebrate harvest and community off this dirty old farm. This is 100% fun for the whole family.
We will still host a end of season appreciation event in October at the farm but we need some more time to prepare.
The event will be $7.00 at the door to support the musicians. Pressed will be open with a full selection of coffee, wine and cocktail bar. We will be offering food specials featuring our farm fresh produce. We will also pop up a farm market. So, lets have a good time, tell your friends!
