Farm News: We harvested 10,000 lbs of sweet potatoes on Saturday – we are curing them in a hot, dry area, so that they will store longer – and then we’ll be giving them out all through late Oct and Nov! (and in the winter share). Remember our Gleaning event is on the farm this Sunday from 10am-noon, together we’ll harvest some crops that have been left behind for various reasons, and donate the produce to Long Island Cares food bank. If you are on Long Island (or heading our direction), we have our Pumpkin Festival “funpass” every Sat and Sun in October from noon-4pm including a bounce house, pony rides, pedal kart track, and farm train which are a lot of fun for kids. Free for CSA members!
