Winter Harvest Celebration - this Sunday, Dec 13th!

As most of you know, this has been my last season at Orchard Hill Farm, as our three year incubator arrangement comes to an end this year. It has been so wonderful (beyond words!) to have been a part of things here in one way or another for five years, and to have had two amazing seasons tending to Fairmeadow Farm's CSA garden...so what better excuse to throw a party (not to mention that this happens to be a perfectly festive time of year)?!


Thus, on this coming Sunday (that would be December 13th), our Winter Harvest Celebration will take place from from 1-3pm at the straw cabin at the farm! There will be hot cocoa and apple cider, a toasty woodstove, horse-drawn sleigh rides (if the weather cooperates), and general merriment and visiting as our season winds down.

Things to bring: yourself, any family/friends you'd like to haul along, nibbly food to share (something that doesn't require cutlery!) or a bevvy to share, a mug and something to put food on/in for everyone you're bringing (and, if you dislike sticky fingers as much as I do, a cloth napkin or two as well!), warm clothing (for sleigh rides), and good cheer.

If you're a Saturday farm member, and would like to pick up your veggies on Sunday after the soiree, just send me an email and I'll box your share for you! Also, if you have any questions about the festivities, you can email me about that too!

Hope you're keeping your hats tied on tightly and your mittens dry, and to see many of you this weekend!

Hey Michelle, thanks for inviting us to the party. It was great. Sorry we couldn't stay for the ride!
I think you've done a wicked awesome job these past 3 years, and it's been great having you as a near neighbor and one of our best friends!
Cheers!
Your friend Ian
