Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everyone,
We hope to head home a little early today, as it was a busy weekend. This morning we planted 4 beds of flowers for the Pick Your Own section and our third planting of lettuce. Yesterday the Peas, Potatoes, Horse Radish and Parsnips were cultivated. Saturday we planted thousands of Sweet Potatoes and picked up these two…………………
They are enjoying the lush green pasture at the very end of our fenced in field – an area previously called “Fairy Land” (might start calling it “Pigs & Fairies Land” now). Of course they need names and we are leaving that to you, the CSA shareholders. What should we call them? Reply to this email, send us a note on instagram, email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or let us know when you come pick up your share the first week of the season – June 13th to the 17th. Every member of the family can offer up a potential name for both pigs, the only rule is you have to be a CSA shareholder to be considered. At the end of the first week of the CSA, the farm crew will choose from all the names given and the two winners will get a FREE Holcomb Farm Trucker Hat and a jar of Holcomb Farm Crushed Tomatoes.
If you don’t have a share yet, the time is now! The sign up deadline is 2 weeks from today and there are currently still some shares available. Head to the Website and make sure you don’t miss out on the freshest, cleanest produce around – you may have had to get food from California for Memorial Day, but between our veggies and the local farm goods in our store, we’ll have you covered from mid-June til 2018!
See you in a few weeks (and send me some pig names!)
