Here's a new face for our farm's caramels. The cutest little red haired kiddo you'd ever want to meet. Boone. He's 6.5 and our youngest grandchild and he loves my caramels. A lot.
In case you didn't know, we have the most wonderful European style baker at the farm during Thursday mornings FarmShop. Picket Fence Pastries brings such a lovely variety of decadence and my weekly weakness are her almond croissants. We're also serving $3 cups of coffee and it's quite delightful to see folks begin to enjoy the garden ambeience.
We aren't providing a lot of seating space - so plan to come by 9 am to reserve a spot.
Spring Growing Season
It's been a lovely spring so far and we just finished our winter CSA/Farm Members share and are excited about what this next season holds. TOMATOES - and we're hoping for lots of beautiful heirloom tomatoes. Summer squash, peppers, peaches, figs, flowers, mint, eggplant, beets, radishes, lettuces, cucumbers and more. This season is always a lovely double dip here in the Phoenix Valley. Get your spring recipes together now.
Are you interested in seeing how other small gardeners grow lots of food? My friend, Jill Green of Sweet Life Garden has just announced the Arcadia Edible Garden Tour again. It's so worth it to see how and what others doing. Click here for more info. The Date is Saturday, May 13th, 2017 from 8:00am – 1:00pm. Tickets go FAST!
Several times a year, Michael and I step back and evaluate how our farm and business is doing and think through some changes that we need to make. One of the changes has been to eliminate the Thursday afternoon FarmShop hours completely. That said, the Farm/ FarmShop is OPEN ONLY Thursday mornings from 9-11:30. IF you need to place an order for our caramels and can't make it a Thursday morning, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange a convientent time for you to stop by the farm and pick up.
Our farm's Friday Suppers are still happening and Michael and I LOVE getting to meet so many amazing people from all walks of life. We're so thankful for this collaboration with The Scottsdale Resort. All seem to be booked through May, however, CALL the resort the week of the next date and ask if there are any cancellations. More info is HERE. Also, there is a possibility that we will continue the suppers in the Fall again. If you're interested to be on the Fall wait list (and it's already filling up), then connect with the resort now.
