Bring your own bags - Gleaning Day!

Posted 9/22/2020 3:29pm by Josie Hart.

Dear shareholders,

Today - PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN BAGS! We are running low on paper.
The much anticipated first gleaning day is here! Bouquets are for sale - Bring $10 cash!

This Saturday,  
9:00 -12:30, Chatfield Farms' CSA fields.

Please park in the first main gravel parking area you see when you arrive at the farm. Bring large reusable grocery bags, snippers or pruners, gloves and water/snacks. This event is free - but please let the security know you are at the farm for Gleaning with the CSA.

You will walk out to our far fields back by our greenhouses (about 10-15 minutes) so you need good shoes and the ability to walk that far. If you end up picking a ton of produce, you can go fetch your car and pick up your produce with it at the end. Please do not drive out to the far fields. We will send out a separate map of the farm for those who are new.

We will have the corn maze event going on and that will create chaos if we have folks driving through the farm.

Each crop you will be able to harvest from will have a flag in front of it - and will be labeled. Please do not pick crops that aren't flagged as we are still harvesting those. We will have tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and other selections we have not determined yet. 

After Gleaning, you all are invited to go through our Corn Maze for FREE!!! If this sounds fun to you, head to the entrance and tell security again you are a gleaner and they will let you and your group inside! Good Luck!  

See you all Saturday!
