Clean-Up Day on the Farm!

We have chatted about hosting a farm cleanup day as we can only do so much by ourselves and figured this would be a great opportunity to have our followers, customers and friends out to the back field to see where we raise our animals and assist us in cleaning up the land from years of abuse. 

A previous "farmer" (air quotes are seriously needed here) convinced my (Kirsten's) grandfather that the plastic ground cover he used on the property for vegetables was biodegradable and turned it under into the soil instead of pulling it up to trash it. That was over 15 years ago. The plastic is still here in all its glory and has gotten into our pond, woodlots, horse pasture, my folks house, just to name a few. We are very concerned about our pigs and poultry inadvertently consuming the plastic, and for the health of the land. There is also plenty of plastic bottles and other debris thrown around the land from the previous tenant's workers. 

If you would be interested in attending we would be eternally grateful and will provide you with food and beverages, and a huge smile!

The date we have come to agree on is Saturday April 14th with a rain date of Sunday April 15th. If the whole weekend looks like a wash, we will try for the following weekend. These dates should allow for the ground to dry out a bit and also give us the ability to navigate the woods and fields without too much Spring growth. 

We are thinking the time of the event to start at 930am and run a couple of hours or more, depending what everyone wants to do. If you can only attend for an hour, perfect! You are under no obligation to stay for the duration. We figure lunch will be around 1230-1. 

Lunch will consist of chicken (shocking), burgers, and some vegetables that wintered over. We will have some beer and wine and non-alcoholic drinks.

Please RSVP by April 7th so we can plan the food.

Thank you all and we hope to see you there!
