Mother’s Day is also on the horizon, and for the 9th (!!) year we are teaming up with Phil and Ursala Altomare of Sacred Gardens. Once again they will host the weekend at their new nursery and garden center in Center Moriches–replete with music, vendors, and plants galore! Come by for organically grown vegetable plants, herbs, annuals, perennials, tropicals, and all things heirloom and rare.
The HOG will be there as well, with a table of the first of the season asparagus, spinach, bok choy, arugula, lettuce, parsnips, jerusalem artichokes, green garlic and more! Join us Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10am-4pm. There will be local musicians stopping by throughout the weekend to serenade you as you peruse the offerings. There will also be several local artisans selling their goods and services. From ocean inspired paintings to bohemian clothing to massage therapy, you are guaranteed to find the perfect gift for mom. The vendors will be under the big green event tent and Sacred Gardens has a great new retail shop, so rain or shine, the show will go on!
On Sunday May 11th (Mother’s Day) is opening day for the Rocky Point Farmer’s Market! So stop by the corner of Prince and Broadway in Rocky Point for fresh HOG produce and eggs as well as grass fed meat, local bread, hand-dyed yarn, handmade soaps, and much more!
May 17th at 10am is our Annual Member Meeting–come meet the farmers and fellow members, elect the 2014 Board of Directors, enjoy a little snack, and tour the fields!
CSA memberships are still available, but we are almost sold out. Questions about how it works? Email me at email@example.com ! Want to join now? Fill out this application and mail it in with your $100 deposit.
Eggs are back in our cooler 5 Library Lane in Brookhaven, after a little Easter-induced hiatus. Leave $6 per dozen in the envelope, and please return the cartons!
Jill for the HOG.
