Thanksgiving Farm Update

Hello from the farm,

The aroma of coffee and chocolate fills the air here in the barn on the day before Thanksgiving as we are putting gift boxes together. We will be making about 1600 of these boxes this year. If you are interested in ordering some for Christmas, send me an email or call us a call. They are pictured at under Programs/Additional/Goodwill at Homefields.

Self Harvest update: self-harvest opportunities are still present--we haven't had any hard freezes yet, although mid to low 20s are predicted for next week.

Looking for some delicious broccoli, cauliflower, or cabbage for your Thanksgiving? We have a guide and tools here to aid you if you are interested. Also afield are: arugula, radishes, cilantro, yellow turnips, and lots of greens like collards, kale, and Asian greens. Mon-Sat 9am-dusk until either the gleaners or the vegetables think it is too frozen to continue.

The Farm Program on WITF
Goodwill at Homefields Farm will be a featured segment on the Good Life Café, an hour long Thanksgiving radio show special on Public Radio, WITF-FM (89.5 Harrisburg/Lancaster; 93.3 Chambersburg).

Scott and all of the farm crew
