Work needs

We need harvesters and prep people for Sunday Oct 3 and Wed Oct 6. Please let Annmarie know if you can help.

We’ll be harvesting potatoes tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 – 1. Let me and Annmarie know if you want to help with this. Kids are welcome.

We need folks to clear out the squash and cucumber beds and get some leaves on them. Please sign up for this weekend work if you can. We can do some work after the harvest.

Our produce (tomatoes, greens, tomatillos) is featured there every week. Yesterday we had the wild boar stew – Wow, what a nice treat after a wet harvest.

See you at the farm!
