Thanks again to everyone who participated in our Fall Harvest Wine Tasting and Benefit. We ate delicious hors d’oeuvres still warm from the oven courtesy of Chef Dave. We sampled J. Lohr’s fine wines, though I don’t know if anyone got through all six of the wines they offered.
It was a nice relaxing evening with other community-minded folks. Most of the attendees seemed to have had some connection to a farm in their past. The event raised over $3,700 for the Farm and a good time was had by all.
Come by the farm stand Friday 3-6 pm and Sunday 11-2 pm for morning-picked produce. This Sunday is our popular U-PICK day. This time around you pick fresh peas, $2.99 a pound. Kids love getting their own food right off the vine! You can harvest the big, fat pods to shell out the peas. The young, flat pods are for stir-fries or cutting up into salads. Don’t forget to bring a bag or basket!
Whether you’ve got a little space or a lot, fall is a great time to plant cool season vegetables!
All seeds are grown in a natural potting mix made of coir/coco peat, native soil, farm compost, and organic fertilizer.
