Our 20th Season!
HOG Trough Week 13 August 17th 2015
Please remember to bring your own bags to pickup, and return berry boxes and egg cartons whenever you can!
What’s Happening at the Farm
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 It’s Only Natural the health food store in Bellport–they’re got a great selection of everything else you need for dinner.
Volunteer Work Hours
Members are welcome to volunteer all season, and if you complete 15 hours or more you receive a $100 refund! May and June is the perfect time to volunteer-lots of projects, cool weather, limited bugs. Workdays are Monday, Wednesday, Friday 930-5pm, and Saturdays 930-12. Drop us an email if you think you might come, so we can be sure to have a project ready!

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!
