Raccoon Forks Farms newsletter – Sept. 4, 2018

Dear Friends and CSA Partners –

Happy September! Are you as muddy as we are, now? We’ve had a lot of rain recently, but the vegetables are liking it, so we are, too! We hope you’ve been getting just enough rain, and not too much.

At our Runnells farm, we’re keeping up with the chickens and eggs, and continuing to work on our goat fencing! If you were receiving these newsletters last summer, you’ll recall that we spent quite a bit of time fencing our new, big chicken pasture. We grow fences at Runnells!

At our Redfield farm, this week, we’re planting lettuce and bunching onions in our high tunnel, for harvesting later this fall. We’re also starting to harvest some of our pumpkins and winter squash! Our squash have been doing really well this year, and we’re looking forward to bringing you some big, beautiful butternuts and other winter squashes.

Before fall really comes, it’s time to enjoy both!

Get to know Brick Street baker Sarah

Brick Street Bakery would like to take a moment to share with you a little about Sarah, one of Brick Street's remarkable bakers. Sarah has worked at our Brick Street businesses for three years, and has been at the Bakery for just for over a year. We hope you enjoy getting to know Sarah a bit.

Sarah’s favorite activity at the Bakery has been learning to make yeast donuts. Brick Street Bakery is helping Sarah work towards her goals, which is to work more hours and to work independently. When Sarah is not at work, she likes to volunteer at her local library, ride her bike and make crafts.

Sarah wants people to know, “This is the best place to get the best homemade donuts and coffee.”

So stop in and visit sometime soon to say hi to Sarah and pick up the best homemade donuts and fresh-roasted coffee around.
