Notes from Your Farm: Spread the Word!

Hello from the Farm,   

It is finally Spring!  Even though we just had a foot of snow last week it is finally melting, the birds are singing, and the trainees are back at the Farm! Our Farm helpers are back at it again greenhouse seeding, watering, and prepping blueberries for the season.  It is definitely Spring!

Spring is the time to spread the word about your Farm!  Help us spread the word and mission of this Farm by sharing this blog post with friends and family in the local area.  It is a great way to let the community know what we are doing here on the Farm!  Easily sharing this blog post on your Facebook page will help spread our mission.  Thank you! 

Information about Goodwill at Homefields Farm: 
When you buy a share at our Farm you directly support the people with disabilities that we train and employ. They develop horticultural skills on the farm and enjoy the outcome of their own labor.  Learning these skills might help them find competitive work within their local community.

We are a chemical free CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) in Millersville, PA. Growing various types of vegetables and fruits that you will pick up on a weekly basis starting in June and ending in November.  While you pick up your vegetables there is a Pick-Your-Own Field for shareholders to harvest at their choosing. Our Farm wants our shareholders to come pickup their vegetables at the farm because they will have a full understanding of where their food comes from, how it is grown, and who is growing their food.  The Farm is for shareholders to help the community understand where their produce comes from, having a better connection with the environment they live in, and for delicious fresh food.
