Strawberry Party Highlights

Back bending work and worth every bite.

We had roughly 100 CSA members and CRO friends come out to the farms last Saturday to share in the strawberry harvest.  Some folks stocked up and got 10 Qts+ to take home and make jam or freeze for the winter. Over 150 Quarts of strawberries were picked by our guests. There were 3 horse drawn wagon rides, 2 horse drawn buggy rides, over 25 different dishes shared at the potluck,  and a record number of children and youth involved!

Homemade donuts, a house specialty. 

After the pickers left Sligo, the Schwartz family and the Steary family were able to glean 125 more Quarts of berries, which we will be making into jam to be included in the winter CSA shares.

If you'd like to read a more detailed and artful description of the day, with beautiful photo's included, Check This Out. One of our members did the day justice with her write-up.

Thank you again to everyone who came out! What a great day!
