Winter’s Approaching (The Farm Weekly Update)
It’s hard to believe that the 2011 Farm season is slowing beginning to come to an end. It’s been an incredible Fall season and we truly the recipients of many blessings as we are celebrating bountiful harvest over the past few weeks.
The season isn’t over yet, but we were overwhelmed last week when we realized we’ve had over 1,000 different people come and serve at The Farm this season. We are humbled, honored and encouraged to live in such an incredible community that has chosen to invest their time with us. Words fail so we simply say thank you!
The Farm Weekly Update
Our Amazing Community
We had an opportunity to host Owl Creek Elementary School’s Garden Club at The Farm & they were an amazing group of students who made a beautiful day even better.
We are thankful for a group from Central United Methodist Church in Fayetteville for serving at The Farm. We had opportunity to hear a little of their story before the day got started.
We are thank to the staff at Fellowship Bible Church for continuing their work on our Pole Barn that will serve to hold all of our produce processing stations, increased cold storage, and some much needed shade in the summer.
Harvest & Hunger Relief
Harvest amounts continue to look great with bountiful harvests each week thanks to perfect fall weather conditions.
Season to date harvest to exactly 7,468 pounds with 47% (or 3,491 pounds) of the total harvest being given to local hunger relief in Northwest Arkansas!
This past week we were able to send food to St. Paul’s Episcopal and Meals on Wheels, Central United Methodist Church Community Meal Program and the NW Arkansas Women’s Shelter
