Help Us Save Our Onion Crop!

Posted 6/22/2017 11:10am by Christy and Chris Kantlehner.

Hi there! 

We've gotten so many people that ask how they can help or volunteer at the farm. Well, we have the perfect opportunity this week for you to make a real impact on the farm! Actually, it's more of a plea for help from our desperate onions that are, at this moment, being invaded by weeds! 

If you didn't already know, Farmer Chris has been down and out for the last few weeks after having surgery to remove his appendix. Perfect timing, right? Actually, not at all! While you've all probably seen him around the farm (doing much more than he should be), he hasn't quite been back to 100%. With one man down and out, those weeds have gotten out of control. 

Just take a look for yourself: 

So...with that said, we're asking for your help. 

Saturday, June 24th from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. ANY TIME INCREMENT within those hours, please come help us weed our onion fields! 

Grab your gloves, bring a hat - we'd REALLY appreciate your weeding hands. 

**You can meet Farmer Chris in the fields behind the barn this Saturday. Park at the farmstand and walk on over (just be careful walking across 1A). 

Really, any amount of time will help. Even an hour! So if you can spare it, ALL of us will be thanking you now AND come fall when the onions are ready to harvest. 

Thank you!
