The cattle get very excited when they see the tractor approaching with a bucket full of greens. With the pigs gone they get all the trimmings.

The Thanksgiving distributions will be this coming week. We will be in Buffalo on Monday 11/24 and in Orchard Park and Amherst on Tuesday 11/25. Please let us know if you would like to switch sites for this week. This will be an extra large share.

Susan Daniels I really, really, really wish I had gotten this in e-mail. Nothing on the blog, nothing in e-mail.

Field Crew

Our shares have sold out for the last six years. We need a hard working crew so we can grow and meet the demand for our shares. The primary responsibility for the field crew is to be quick and effective cultivators and harvesters. Most of the day will be spent weeding, harvesting, washing and packing vegetables. Some general farm work is involved. We harvest most of the crops the day they are distributed so it is essential that the harvest is finished quickly so that the truck can leave on time.

During the peak season (May though Thanksgiving) the work-week is Monday through Friday for ten hours a day. Benefits: Profit sharing and 401K. Housing is available locally.
