Farmer’s Note — Week 13

Dear CSA Member

This coming Saturday is the Fall Farm Festival. I am including the information again this week and hope you will be able to attend.

This week is a Coffee Share week so please pick up your Coffee if you have a share. There are still Peaches, Tomatoes and Hot Peppers in bulk from the online CSA Marketplace.

The Fall Farm Festival is September 7, 2013 from 11:30-3. Please use the 145 Garcia Lane, Leeds, NY 12451 address. Come and meet your farmers, walk the fields where your vegetables are grown. Bring a dish to share and your own place setting. The farm will provide a barbecue, roast corn and portobello mushrooms, vegetarian chili, fresh fruit and coffee. Thank you to Paradise to Go, for preparing the barbecue and chili.

There will be wagon rides, walks around the farm, freshly dug carrots to pick from the field to take home, help build a scarecrow, pick a bouquet of flowers. If you would like to take flowers home, please bring your own scissors and something that will keep the flowers until you get home. Wet paper towels or newspapers in a plastic bag will usually do the trick.

Other local farms and businesses will be in attendance and have products for sale.
