Unfortunately, due to Farmer Rachel's health challenges, we are uncertain what we will be able to offer for special events in 2016. Please visit this page regularly for updates. We hope Farmer Rachel will be up and running at somewhat normal speed at some point in time again.

Be All That You Can Be Days: (aka Member Workdays!)
Every Thursday from May - October.
Free and open to anyone. Feel free to show up unannounced but an email or phone call is appreciated.
Come help out on the farm for the morning, or the afternoon. Participate in whatever it is we are doing that day: hand-weeding, hoeing, transplanting, harvesting, etc. Wear clothes that can and will get dirty. Bring a snack and a water bottle. Please be sure that hands are free of perfumes, lotions, make-up, and especially cigarette residue. Tobacco can carry TMV, a virus that once spread to a soil, is hard to get rid of. It can be harmful to all nightshades: tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant.

Whether you eat meat (like farmer Dave) or only our meat (like farmer Rachel,) or no meat at all, come join us for an after-the-fall-foliage Sunday afternoon. We will roast one of our pigs. Farmer Rachel will make non GMO cornbread, vegetarian baked beans, roasted root vegetables and her famous pumpkin pie, all certified organic from our farm. Pie crusts will be made either with organic vegetable shortening (for the vegans and vegetarians,) or rendered lard from our own pigs for those who know how flakey and tasty a lard-crust can be. Spend some down-time with fellow community members and farmers, eat good food and rejoice. It might be cold; it might rain; it might shine. Who knows? But this event is guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart!
