The Farm Fall Broccoli

Fall Harvest Begins!

We are excited to share that this week we begin to harvest the first of our fall crops.  It’s been a tough year, but this Fall has been a gift from above.  We are expecting a full and bountiful crop for the next month.  For that we are truly thankful.

Weather permitting, we should be able to harvest until the first week in November.  However, if the weather changes, we will keep you updated on the end of year at the Cobblestone Project Farm and what that means for you.

It’s a beautiful time to be at The Farm, so we hope you and your family will have a chance to visit & join us for our Fall Harvest Celebration on Sat, Oct 22nd (click for more info).

Gary’s Weekly Update

Harvest Update

Thanks to you, we have been able to give away 46% of our total harvest this season to local relief in Northwest Arkansas! That is 3,017 pounds of produce. To date, we have harvested 6,586 pounds of produce.

In the last week we harvested 412.1 pounds, with 226 pounds of that going to Hunger Relief which we were able to give to Restoration Village and Samaritan Community Center.

Community Update

Last, but certainly not least, our Fall Harvest Party is coming up! Please join us on October 22nd from 4-8pm for a family-friendly event to celebrate the 2011 season at The Farm. This will be a time of fun and fellowship at The Farm, and will also be a time for the community to gather around what they have helped accomplish this season. We will have hayrides, kids’ activities, a bonfire, smores, and a showing of “The Great Pumpkin – Charlie Brown”.  Our pumpkin patch will also be open, and pumpkins and BBQ will be available for purchase.
