Week #12 — A Note from the Farmer

Dear CSA member,

We are planning the upcoming Fall Farm Visit and hope you will be able to attend. Please mark your calendars The Fall Farm Festival is September 6, 2014 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. At 12 we will gather for lunch. The farm will provide pulled pork and also a vegetarian stew, roast corn and portobello mushrooms, fresh fruit and coffee. Thank you to Paradise to Go, http://paradistogo.com/ . We ask members to bring a dish to share to help round out the lunch offerings and their own place setting.

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.

Heather Ridge Farm www.Heather-ridge-farm.com or https://www.facebook.com/pages/Heather-Ridge-Farm will have fiber items, socks from their own flock of Dorset & Icelandic sheep and llama wool, beeswax candles for sale.

We will have all of our Marketplace items for sale as well: Honey, Maple Syrup, Coffee, Organic Dark Chocolate.

If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to the farm. Hope to see you at the farm.
