CSA Summer Pick & Jam
Sunday, June 23, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM (PDT)
Brentwood, United States
We have a fun filled day planned for our CSA Summer Pick & Jam. We hope you’ll be able to join us on Sunday, June 23rd from 11am-3pm.
CSA members and their families and friends are invited to pick and eat sun warmed peaches off the tree to their hearts content, as well as to pick some to take home at a U-pick price of $2.50 per pound. Members wishing to pick fruit to take home should bring their own containers. This is a great opportunity for those who love to bake, freeze, or make fruit preserves.
Speaking of fruit preserves, Chef Becky will be leading a step by step fruit preserving class in our Farm Kitchen from 11:30am-1:00pm. We have space for 12 people to participate. This class is first come first served.
The Mt. Diablo String Band will be jamming away on their banjos, fiddles, and guitars, while our guests pick peaches and picnic in the Orchard. Please pack a picnic lunch and stay a while to enjoy the music and the Orchard. We will provide limited table seating in the old packing shed.
Get crafty at our Creation Station and learn how to make a dream catcher! This Native American tradition is a beautiful way to welcome happy dreams into your sleep. This fun and easy craft will be a blast for kids and will use wood from the Orchard (parental supervision requested).
We will have a mini-market of our Frog Hollow Farm products available for purchase. Cash or check only for farm products and peaches.
Here’s what you should plan on brining:
- A reusable water bottle
- Picnic blanket
- Containers to take peaches home
- A sunhat
- Comfortable shoes
- A camera
- Cash or check if you'd like to purchase anything
We ask you to remember that Frog Hollow is a working farm. For everyone’s safety please stay off the farm equipment and away from the irrigation canal. We kindly request that all people picking fruit to take home, purchase everything that is picked into containers. Surrounded by the bounty and beauty of the Orchard, it is easy to get carried away and pick too much! When picking, please be mindful of how much you will really want to take home with you. Though Farmer Al and Becky’s dog Nocci would love the company, please leave your pets at home.
