Summer "Meet your Farm Day" July 17th, 2010
Rose Creek Farms Summer 2010 "Meet your Farm Day" was a great success! We had lots of wonderful food and fun in the sun. The weather was a little warm but we enjoyed a nice breeze. We finished with everything fairly early in the day so it wasn't bad at all. The pot luck dinner was delicious with baked garlic butter Chicken and B-B-Q chicken legs on the grill. We fixed garlic rosemary potatoes and the red, white and blue cake. 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 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 fall. To all our CSA members....we appreciate your support, patience and generosity, You are the truly the greatest!
I will get the rest of the pics up as soon as I can.
