Well, we held our Maysie's FarmFest 2010 yesterday and it was a smashing success!
We had amazing musicians performing throughout the day, and food and beer flowing all day. The mid- afternoon downpour may have prevented some more people from coming, but those who were here persevered the 10 minutes to eventually bask in the sun again! Thanks to all those who came out – we are so pleased with the way it turned out, whether it was a successful fundraiser for the organization or not (the results are still being tallied!)
For those of you who missed it, we may have some of the musicians come out to play for our pot luck dinners!
NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION MEETING:
Just a reminder that Monday evening, May 24th at 7 pm, we are holding our New Member Orientation Meeting. We will meet out in the barnyard area. For this event you will be parking on the lawn between the barn and the house. (come into the gravel driveway). Looking forward to seeing all new members there!!
Our first Friday pick up is on the 28th! Among other things, we'll have some beautiful beets and stir fry greens for you on your first pick up day. Preparation of these greens is so simple and the result is delicious!
Just heat up a pan with olive oil and garlic, add the washed and chopped greens and sauté until they are wilted! (You can use the beet greens like this as well!)
More diverse recipes for the specific greens will follow in later weeks, and as always, if you have a recipe that you love, please pass it along!
Each week, members receive updates regarding the farm. We are no longer using the email format to get you this information. The updates will be posted on our blog. I will send out detailed instructions later in the week. Basically, you would subscribe to the blog and it would appear in your email each week. If you do not subscribe, be sure to check the blog each week for the update! Stay tuned!!
PLEASANT PASTURES DELIVERIES:
Ben Stoltzfus will continue making deliveries every other week during the CSA season. His next delivery will be on Friday June 4th.
LAUREL HILL CHICKENS:
We will be carrying Jeremiah Eldredge's pastured chickens again this year. They should be available by the end of June!
CHILDREN'S COOKING CAMPS AT MAYSIE'S FARM:
We start our first week of camp on June 28th with the 6-9 year old group.
The pamphlet with all of the information is attached here and there is more info at the farm--- tell your friends! This is a great experience for little (and big) ones!
