Fall Farm Clean Up Day at The Garden Gate Farm

We are thrilled to announce that we will be able to do our Annual ‘Spring’ Clean Up Day this Fall! Many of you who were planning on coming out this past Spring for our annual event were very disappointed, as were we, due to the Memorial Service for Neil’s mom. Well, we are planning the grand event for Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 from 10am to 4pm. As usual Neil will be roasting a hog and we will serve up all the fixen’s with it… a Farm to Table Dinner at the Farm! Of course we will serve my famous Vegetarian Lasagna for all our veggie lovin’ friends! As always everyone is welcome, both our CSA members along with our Farm Market Friends, to others know simply as ‘customer’s.  [Read More]
 
 

More on Organization: Weekly Schedule At A Glance, Focused Event Days~ Errand and Desk Days, More Yummy Market Fresh Recipes!

Everyone that knows me knows I love to create schedules, make lists and have multiple day planners & calenders.  I love everything about organization. Over the years I realized that I inherited this trait from my mother... who I may say has even the labels of her spice jars and canned goods all facing in the same direction and to size... they even might be alphabetized- I've never dared look.  Her cupboards are immaculate and she never has dust. Mind you, it is just her and my dad and she only had me!  I am glad that I have this trait thanks to her... even though I never realized it while I was growing up.  It has only been since I have had a home of my own and my family have I realized all the important things she taught me... or at least tried to!  My 'other' mom, is also extremely organized~ she's actually the one who introduced me to The Flylady program.  She has helped me tremendously in many area's, especially with sewing 'stuff'.  Her material/craft closet is also immaculate and completely organized right up to type's of fabrics and colors.  Her craft stuff is always tidy and in it's place!  What wonderful examples I have been blessed with!  Anyway, back to schedules & lists...   [Read More]

just a note from Jean

greetings! 

just a short note this evening--- I realized I forgot to put our Ferndale drop off in our listing, so I thought I should do it while I have a couple of minutes.  Got all the raised beds for the garlic weeded and ready to plant tomorrow!  We'll probally have about 3000 cloves  to plant.  We'll do what we can.  I broke all the bulbs up today.  Next year we'll be able to put the Elephant Garlic in the boxes at least once.  It's so big!  It's calling for 72 degrees in Detroit tommorrow.  Hope it comes to us for planting.

We would like to start a drop off point somewhere in the Livonia or/and Dearborn areas.  We make regular deliveris to The Henry Ford and Greenfield Village Restaurants and would be willing to use this area as a drop off.  We would need each drop off point to have at least 6 boxes to be considered.  If anyone is interested and know of some people who want CSA in these areas please give us a call ASAP.

Our 2 tents that were over the produce stand tables got blown away and destroyed the other week.  We were able to get a used canopy from a friend.  The wind can be so distressing sometimes.  We're getting ready to close up the stand for the season-  just to cold and not that much left. 

CSA SHARE UPDATE:

As of 10-20-09 we have 8 shares still available.  If you havn't got your pledge forms in yet,  please do so quickly.  Several people waited last year and were out of luck.  We still have 5 of the Work shares available.

THANKSGIVING/ CHRISTMAS TURKEYS:

We still have 10 turkeys of 45 available.  Call for info 810-672-9905

CHICKENS;

We are taking orders for chickens for the 2010 season.  We will have about 40 chickens available every two weeks starting in Mid June.  We will bring them to market just like this year.  We had such a wonderful response to the chicken we will do more next year.  Please place your orders asap they sell out fast!

 

Well I guess it's time to sign off.. till next time... happy day

sincerely,  Jean

news from the farm

good morning!

well I just updated our local harvest listing- I can't beleive how long that takes.  At least it's only once or twice a year.  This is a brand new blog.  I enjoy writing so I'm taking advantage of this.  Just want to say we are very pleased with this years markets and are already looking forward to next years.  We only have a couple shares still available (10-13-09) but we still have 5 out of the 10 work shares still open. 

The weather is cold and rainy- we need to get the fields tilled and all the plastic pulled up.  See if I can't write again soon

 

see you at the market, jean
