I have a public service announcement:
I will be giving a presentation at the Unitarian Fellowship, on Sandwich Road in Hatchville, on Wednesday at 7 PM.
The presentation is on why we need to produce food and fiber locally using renewable energy sources, and how Coonamessett
Farm fits into that picture. If there isn’t anything good on reality TV you might want to come on by and participate
in an interesting discussion. I warn you, the facts are frightening. I should have given the talk at Halloween.
Speaking of food, Thanksgiving is upon
us next week. The farm will be open Tuesday and Wednesday before the holiday. We are taking pie orders now. These famous fresh
baked pies include fruit of the forest, apple, blueberry, pumpkin, and pecan. Pies ordered by Sunday will be discounted $1.00;
fruit pies costing only $11.95. Pumpkin and pecan pies will cost $10.95 when ordered by Sunday. We are also discounting the
left-over Bliss ice cream; $5.00 a quart. Order three pies and get a quart of ice cream free! Call now; 508-563-2560 or email
your order to email@example.com.
This Saturday and Sunday, from 10-4,
we will be holding our First Annual “Taste of Coonamessett Farm” products sampling. My staff and I are working
on the details and it should be a lot of fun. There will be an added feature during the weekend: Buy one of our wood or Bolga
baskets at regular price and load it up with Coonamessett Farm labeled food products from our shelves and get 20% off whatever
you can fit into the basket. These include our salad dressings, marinades, salsas, pasta sauces, and stuffed olives for martinis.
With Thanksgiving coming can Christmas
and the other holidays be far behind? Thanksgiving Thursday is followed by the retailer’s “Black Friday”
when everyone goes to the malls. The farm is open that day but usually deserted. So here is what we are going to do for that
Friday: have a one day only sale on our Alpaca products. Free hot cider for shoppers with any purchase and 20% off our alpaca
products in celebration of The Annual New England Alpaca Holiday Tour. Our fine alpaca clothing, including gloves, hats, shoals,
and jackets, are already priced way below the fancy big city stores. What a deal!
On Saturday, November 24th,
our Christmas trees will be arriving directly from Nova Scotia
grown by Spence Farms of Woburn Massachusetts. These are fresh cut premium Balsam firs; the best trees we can find. This is
the same source we have been using for years and we have been quite pleased overall with the quality. It is mind boggling
how fast this season is moving; it must be global warming.
<IT Department note: you will
be receiving Ron’s E-mails from the firstname.lastname@example.org address until further notice. Rest assured, Ron is getting mail sent to either his REAL address at email@example.com, or this current address. It’s not like we were threatened with vats of alpaca dung, or even being bitten by
a voracious omnivorous duck…really…no threats like that at all….we swear>
