Before I dive into why you should come help me help you all eat great food, the normal Monday pickup is being bumped up to 12-2pm so you can add some Potter Hill deliciousness to your Labor Day barbecues. If you can’t make it by 2, just let me know when you place your order and I will bag it up for you. With the earlier pickup time, I had to shorten the list up a bit but there’s still 20+ items to choose from, plus surely some that didn’t make the list! No rainbow carrots this week, but the one pictured above is the first one I pulled from the next planting…almost ready to go!
Have you recently had the itch to get your hands dirty learning how to grow your own food? Have you had trouble sleeping lately? Are you looking for a more rewarding job? Or a super flexible way to make some money while the kids are in school? Bored with your current workout? Looking to spend more time outdoors? Stuck eating terribly and can’t figure out how to get out of the rut? Taking some time away from school to figure out life? So many questions! Even if you answered no to all these…do you know someone who may have said yes to some of these?
I’m looking for someone or a couple someones to help me finish off this fantastic season. Bonus if you’re interested in a longer term opportunity, as I lose all my current crew to school and life opportunities next season. Perks of the job – a good night’s sleep after a great paid workout while learning how to grow your own food in the great outdoors. Not to mention you will eat like a king…on a pauper’s salary, which is only downside to the job in my opinion. But until we as a society reevaluate if a Starbucks coffee is more valuable than an organic heirloom tomato or that dog food should be the same price per pound as never sprayed rainbow carrots, that’s all I can offer! Qualifications are a willingness to work hard, interest in learning, satisfaction in a job well done, ability to lift 20 pounds repeatedly, attention to detail, and an appreciation of working outside, even in less than ideal weather. Please share far and wide -as of 9/21, it will be just me and a part-timer. Stay-at-home parent hours would fit well with the job!
Veggie Ordering and Pickup Procedures: Put your veggie orders in online before midnight Sunday. The website has been a little buggy so if you don’t see a wide variety of items or you see items out of stock, try refreshing your browser. Also confirm on checkout that you have the correct number of each item in your cart. New this year, we’ll have your order bagged up and available for you to pick up from 4-7pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the beat up tan and red barn at the crest of the hill.
