Gary gives a quick update on how things are progressing out at The Farm after the recent rains. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbtevT8GvgI
This week we were able to accomplish..
- install the CCF Brands sponsored University of Arkansas Poultry Project & are hoping to have chicken on site within the week.
- plant approx. 200 blackberry plants
- repair washout and erosion from recent storms
- maintenance on existing crops, pick up rocks
- have a blast
It was also our first week at the Bentonville Farmer's Market on the Bentonville Square and we had a lot of visitors we were able to tell the story to. Make sure you stop by and meet Rachel next Saturday!
We also had the privilege of having the Barioli's Pizzaria 11/12 year old Little League Baseball team at The Farm today. They got their hands dirty, planted over 200 blackberry pushes, picked up a ton of rocks & were an incredible help. Coach Jason tells a little bit of their story...
