Third Annual Community Wheat Harvest this Saturday July 28th

23 July

This Saturday, July 28th from 10-3, join us for our Third Annual Community Wheat Harvest! Experience the full circle from field to mouth: together we will gather our wheat crop, thresh the grain, mill it into flour, and then bake delicious crusty pizzas in the farm’s cob oven. If you’re not sure how much fun this will be, here are some pictures from last year’s event, to convince you; once we’ve got you hooked, read on for details about how to attend.

We’ll harvest fresh ripe tomatoes, peppers, basil or other crops straight from the fields to add as toppings, and if we have enough milk we’ll even make goat cheese to add as well.

For the event itself, we request a donation of $10/car, so carpool with friends and family. Save a couple bucks and burn less hydrocarbons! Please use the Litchfield Lane entrance to the farm and follow signs for parking. Directions are on our website. Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting some “dirt” on, sturdy shoes (sneakers are fine, sandals not so much), and layers of clothing: a sweater to keep you warm for when it is cool and foggy in the morning, and a t-shirt, hat and sunscreen for when the sun comes out. Friends and family are welcome, so spread the word if you like. Look forward to seeing you on Saturday!!
