August at the Farm: Society of St. Andrew and a Farm Tour
On August 18th, North River Farms was pleased to be able to donate a potato field to the Society of St. Andrew. The Society of St. Andrew is an organization that gleans food straight from farmers’ fields in order to feed the hungry.
There were forty-two volunteers that came to glean the potatoes, and our crew helped, too. With all of that help, we were able to harvest and donate 5,238 pounds of potatoes!
We’ve also been busy giving farm tours. We hosted folks from the Emeritus at Pine Park living facility for a farm tour, picnic, and u-pick session.
It was a wonderful day at the farm. Thanks for coming, Pine Park residents!
