Farm Journal 6/24/24

I took a break from everything last Sunday and couldn’t get myself to sit down and look at a computer. Miles and I have had (at least) a week and a half long Irrigation Saga leading up to this heatwave. Right before we got blasted with 95+ degree days, our irrigation quit working. The mental and physical strain to sleuth out and repair the problems was tremendous – but we prevailed. I’ll let Miles tell the tale at a later date. Needless to say, writing last week’s newsletter just didn’t make it up there on the priority list – my apologies to those regular newsletter readers of ours! You can see by our smiles that we won!!

A few important notes:

Pizza day – this Wednesday is Pizza day. We’re going to be short staffed, but the pizza will still happen. Just come with extra patience!

No bread – Mediterra is doing routine maintenance on their ovens, so we won’t have any bread, pastries, or cookies for sale.

Garden Share pick up – we have a small garden share distribution this week. Swing by and pick up your seedlings, if you’ve joined the Garden Share component of our farm.

Fresh whole roasting chickens are available this week. We raised these chickens are pasture, with Non GMO and soy free feed. We have a limited supply – and after Wednesday, they will all go into the freezers and be sold as frozen chicken.

Place your order for some farm fresh goodies!

We also have plenty of Garlic Scapes! Place your order here for Scapes!

Sausages and selling quickly at the farmers markets! Be sure to ask about our 3 for $30 deal on all sausages! We have an up-right freezer in the farm store that is full of a whole lotta varieties of our sausages. Be sure to root around in there and find your dinner plans!

Enter 3for30 at check out to get your discount! 

You can also get the 3 for 30 deal at the farmers markets too – just open up that cooler and pick out your 3 more favor flavors!

ROASTER PIGS for your July 4th cook out! Impress your friends and family!

Please spread the word that we’ve got roaster pigs ready at the butchers. If you’re planning a heck of a cook out for the 4th of July…. think about these guys as an option. They’d be great in a smoker, on a spit, in a pit, on on a roaster.  Put your deposit down HERE.

We’re looking for Workshare help

If you ever feel like you’ve got extra time on your hands, we’d be happy for a little extra weeding help. It’s great opportunity to get grounded, get a little dirty (soil microbes are good for mental health!), soak up some sun, and hang out with folks how appreciate good food, hard work and being outside. OR, if you want a little alone time – we get that too. We can set you off on your own to zone out to an audio book while you tackle a section of the farm that needs some hard-core weeding attention. Come on Tuesdays at 9 am and stay until 1:30 and have lunch with us! We’ll send you home with a CSA share for the week! Just shoot me an email if you’re ready to come play on the farm with us!
