Visit our On-farm Markets this Fall!

October 5, 2014


We’re opening up the farm this Fall to offer fresh produce to the community as the farmer’s markets begin to close for the season. We’ll continue growing quality produce here at Wolfscratch until at least Thanksgiving, so think about stopping by, walking the gardens, seeing how your food is produced, and grabbing some beautiful, organic veggies on your way out. The next couple of months will bring an abundance of greens like kale, collards, rainbow chard, spinach, cabbages, arugula and lettuce, loads of colorful winter squash (including pumpkins), plus root veggies like carrots, beets, and radishes. So stop by anytime during the hours listed above!

Note: Our markets will be cash or check only, please!

Join us for our Fall Potluck!

Greetings from the farm to all of our friends and supporters! We can barely believe it, but it’s time again to announce our annual Fall Festival at Wolfscratch Farm. We’ve decided to take a Potluck approach this year to encourage the community to get involved with sharing dishes created using local fare. We love to cook here at Wolfscratch Farm and feel that it’s something that can be enjoyed by anyone with a desire and fresh ingredients. Jamie will be contributing his famous chili trio (red, pork green, and vegetarian) as usual, but we’re curious about what the community can conjure with their locally-sourced produce. The rules for the dishes are simple: use as many locally-grown and organic ingredients as possible. It doesn’t have to be 100% of either, but we urge a trip to your favorite farmer’s market or produce stand to support your local growers as we near the end of the season.

Admission is free, but we encourage a donation to our farmer’s fund to help launch our new Farm-to-table dinner and after-school education programs that are planned for next year. Hear more about those plans at the event! You can also gain access to our permaculture workshop taking place the following day, November 2nd by donating a minimum of $35 to the farmer’s fund. Learn more about the workshop here.

We’re excited to announce that we will also be holding a raffle for the chance to win a half-share and full-share CSA membership for a 2015 half-season. Tickets are $3 for a half-share and $5 for a full. Purchase tickets when you RSVP (see below). Rules for the Raffle: 1) A minimum of 50 total ticket sales are required to hold the raffle for the two CSA shares; if this minimum is not met, two winners will go home with a full-share-size basket of produce after the potluck 2) Entrants must reside locally (in the Jasper area) or in Decatur 3) Limit two tickets per family (if a name is drawn twice, we will hold a redraw for one ticket), 4) Workershares are welcome to enter!

Look forward to lots of entertainment including live music, walks through our transformed permaculture gardens, a bonfire, s’mores, apple bobbing, a kids’ costume contest, and more! Camping will also be available to those staying for the workshop the following day.

So come on down to Wolfscratch Farm to celebrate the season! You can RSVP and purchase raffle tickets by clicking here.

Greetings, Friends! We’re happy to announce that we’ll be holding a two-day group work party here on the farm on the weekend of September 27th and 28th. We’ve got our work cut out for us when it comes to Fall prep, so we thought we would invite our community of supporters and friends to lend a hand in exchange for some awesome Barbecue and an early-autumn camp-out! Anyone is welcome to join us at 1:00 PM Saturday for a few hours of diggin’ in the dirt, followed by feasting and festivities, perhaps a lovely bonfire to greet the new season, and camping under the stars (if you choose to stay for Sunday). For those who wish to stick around for the second day, we’ll start with a farm-fresh breakfast and then hit the fields again for a few more hours of teamwork. We work hard here at Wolfscratch Farm, but we always strive to make it fun, too! If you’re interested in joining us, please RSVP by sending an email to wolfscratchfarm@gmail.com with “Many Hands” in the subject line. Please include a brief message stating how many days you’ll be attending and companions you’ll bring.

 

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces!
The Wolfscratch Team
