Thankful for the Rain!

It’s been a hot and dry early summer, but the recent rains have provide some much needed relief to our crops.  We received almost three inches over the past few weeks and it should provide a nice boost to current production.

Our Amazing Community

Huge thanks to those who came out to The Farm over the Memorial Day weekend to help pick blueberries, plant peanuts, and just enjoy the day. Also, thanks to Fellowship College who came out and help this past weekend and helped harvest blackberries and onions!

Production Update

The past few weeks at The Farm have seen a flurry of activity as the summer crops are starting to come in strong.

We have a whole lot in the ground and planted peanuts, corn, and much more.We harvested around 15 pounds of blackberries this week, along with cabbage, peppers, and snap peas.

We are excited to share that the hens have started laying eggs! We collected 5 eggs this week, and are expecting many more throughout the summer.

Hunger Relief

We have begun hunger relief distribution & we were excited to deliver some of our first crops to Samaritan Community Center & NW Arkansas Women’s Shelter.

We have planned to give some of our heavier produce such as tomatoes and potatoes to Hunger Relief efforts. They will begin to pick up and occur during the week if anyone wants to help with mid-week harvest and preparation for hunger relief.

Volunteer Opportunities

It’s a great time to be at The Farm, check our calendar for opportunities to bring your family and enjoy the day.
