Whats Happening at the Farm
I can’t believe it’s week 17 already! This season has flown by, and it has been such a bountiful and productive one! Our regular CSA share goes through the end of October, which this season will be week 23. There is still a few spots available for our holiday extension, which continues the share through mid December. The extension is $200, if you are interested in extending your share, send me an email!
This Sunday there will be a yoga class at the farm, to benefit our local Food Not Bombs. Find more information here!
Need a little extra produce? We sell on Saturday mornings in Bellport next to It’s Only Natural and Rocky Point Farmer’s Market on Sundays. Remember CSA members get a 10% discount at the markets! And stop in at Lillian’s for 10% off of all purchases $30 or more at It’s Only Natural the health food store in Bellport! Lillian also has a great selection of bulk grains, and beans that she can order at a discount for CSA members, so stop in and order what you need!

Pick Your Own
At the HOG all of our herbs and flowers are u-pick. Please come anytime, avoid picking if there is heavy rain, bring your own clippers if you can, and be sure to leave the gates as you found them! Also please be gentle with the plants–all of our herbs are meant to last for the season, so please clip gently and only remove a few stems from each plant. With care these beds will last all summer!
