The season is moving fast and it is tough
to keep up on everything. To make your life easier and hassle free I have prepared a checklist to help you start off the holiday
season. Don’t thank me; it’s part of my job to serve you better.
Thurs Nov 20: Call or email Cfarm to order pies (508-563-2560;
firstname.lastname@example.org) receive one dollar off per pie ($11.95 for blueberry, apple, fruit-of-forest and $9.95 for pumpkin or pecan). Choose a pick-up
date and time (Sunday, Tuesday, or Wednesday)
Sat & Sun Nov 22 & 23: Address the global economic
crisis by saving money (to be spent on pies) by making use of your farm membership. Take the kids to the farm to visit the
animals; an experience that is already bought and paid for and keeps on giving.
Mon Nov 24: Visit
a car dealer; bring them a care package including a pie.
Tues & Weds Nov 25 & 26: Come to the farm to pick up your pies and pick lettuce and greens for Thanksgiving. The greenhouse has
a fine crop ready for picking.
Thanksgiving Day: Eat and give thanks. I surely will as the
farm is closed for the day.
Gilt free recipe for a healthy dessert: Place six One-A-Day vitamin tablets in plastic bag and crush with hammer. Mix with
teaspoon of brown sugar and sprinkle on top of pie. Serve with ice cream.
Fri Nov 28: The infamous “Black Friday”; the
day the malls will save the world. If however you are the type that wants to save the world one farm at a time it is a good
day to come to the farm and start your seasonal shopping spree. You will be lonely as the place is usually deserted but you
will have a good quantity of alpaca items to select from for your gift giving. Ten percent of your purchase price will go
for hay and feed for the animals and fuel to keep them warm through the harsh winter ahead.
Note: Our Christmas trees will be arriving directly from
Nova Scotia on Tuesday, Nov 25th this year. We have found that direct shipping is the best way to get premium fresh
cut trees. We will start tree sales on Friday next week. We only get the one load of these top quality fresh trees and we
price them very reasonably for their grade.
