Spring "Meet your Farm Day" May 8th, 2010
Rose Creek Farms Spring 2010 "Meet your Farm Day" was a great success! We had lots of wonderful food and fun in the sun. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed a little breeze. The pot luck dinner was fantastic with grass fed B-B-Q Brisket and Chuck Roast donated by Gary and Kathy Waymire from Red Bud Ranch in Chico, Texas. We also grilled garlic butter Rosemary Chicken on the grill. The side dishes consisted of delicious potluck recipes from our members. It was a lot of fun to try the CSA veggies in new ways and share recipes. Before lunch we had a tour of the farm and stopped to visit each of the livestock. We explained how we grow our veggies and let our members see first hand the food they would be soon receiving in their shares. We learned how to make homemade charcoal, how and why it is good for the soil. We learned about the process of making Compost tea and why we put it in our soils. The kids had a ball visiting the pigs that were born on Fourth of July of last year. They also visited the new baby chicks, chickens, turkeys and "Billy" our male goat. A special thank you to the members who came out and made this day a wonderful success! To those who were unable to attend this one, we will be having another one in the summer. To all our CSA members....we appreciate your support, patience and generosity, You are the truly the greatest!
