THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SUPPORTED OUR FARM STAND!

Every dollar you spent went to support the farm. This year has been an experiment. Now we have to gather our figures and review our inventory to plan for next year. So many people to thank from the Strong Family Farm Steering Committee and our faithful volunteers.  OPENING DAY?  We are thinking Wednesday, June 14th with free The Farmers Cow ice cream.  Check back for more information or like us on Facebook!

Missed out on Claudia’s pickles, relishes, and salsa? OR so you need some Dan Villeneuve’s cards? The Great Hartford Holistic Healthfest at Vernon Center Middle School on Hartford Tpke. (across the street from the farm), on March 25th and 26th.   http://www.vernonhealthfest.com

Report from our chickens at their new home. Amy DeBaum at Drigg’s Hill Farm (on the other side of the tunnel in Vernon – take a left and at the dead end). They are laying and she has zillions of eggs for sale up there. Also, they have become escape artists….teaching others sneaky ways to get out of the fenced in area for better pickings in the fields. We hope the predators on that side of the fence don’t find them!
