Carversville Farm Round Up:
September 14

 

CFF IS HIRING!

It’s hard to believe, but our 2018 apprentice season is winding down!  With just a couple months left, it’s actually time to start planning for the 2019 season.  For the upcoming season, we are looking for two seasonal full time employees – one in livestock and one in vegetables, as well as three apprentices; one for livestock, one for field crops/ hay and one for vegetables.  If you or anyone you know is interested, please visit our website at www.carversvillefarm.org/#careers to learn more.

Carversville Farm Foundation is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

This could be you next season!

CFF VOLUNTEERING – WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We will still have volunteer opportunities from now until November and REALLY need extra hands!  Please join us every Wednesday and Saturday!

When: Every Wednesday and Saturday morning in season
Time: 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Where: 6127 Mechanicsville Road, Mechanicsville, PA 18934

Please wear comfortable clothes and appropriate footwear. Be prepared to get a little dirty! We provide tools, gloves, and beverages. Please Note: Minors 15 and younger must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

 

Make way for collard greens

To look for the silver lining in all this rain, our vegetable fields are popping with delicious veggies ripe for the picking, especially our collard greens.  Collard Greens are part of the Brassica family (similar to Kale and Cabbage) and is rich in vitamins.  They are always a popular item for donation and we are anticipating that we should have between 300 and 400 pounds for donation (as well as available at our farm stand) over the next couple weeks.

THANKSGIVING IS COMING!

 

It’s only 2 months until Thanksgiving, don’t be late ordering your turkey!  This year we have several Heritage types and the larger Broad Breasted turkeys available for purchase! Broad Breasted Turkeys ($6/lb), are a large breed and what you would see typically in the supermarket–lots of white meat…that quintessential Thanksgiving bird many of us know and love. They will weigh in between 16 and 21 pounds. The Heritage birds ($10/lb) are a little smaller, have more dark meat and will dress between 7 and 13 pounds. A $40 deposit is required to hold your turkey. To reserve a turkey, please contact Stephanie at stephanie@carversvillefarm.org.
