July News from Added Value Farms!

The tomatoes are in the ground, but oh how they love to tangle! Join us on the farm this Saturday, July 9, 10:30am-1pm for a pruning party so that more air and sun can circulate, harvesting is easier, and the fruit ripens evenly. It's a battle against time to prevent a sprawling tomato thicket! Bring pruners if you have them, plus a steady hand and a discerning eye - we'll show you the rest!
Getting big, but getting bushy!
If you missed signing up for our CSA, you're in luck! We had a few spots open up for a weekly share of produce grown right here on the farm. We also partner with local suppliers to offer fruit, cheese, meat, fish, and eggs. Saturday pick-up only. See here for pricing info (totals will be pro-rated) and email directly to join.
Eggplant = happiness
Our full summer crew of youth farmers is here and in effect! We welcomed back almost all of our spring youth, who will in turn mentor their newer peers to water, weed, and of course, harvest harvest harvest. Come say hi on Saturdays as they continue running the farmers market, 10am-3pm as well as leading groups of volunteers. Plus, they've taken over our Instagram account!
Thanks to everyone who came out to our Summer Kick-Off Party last week, helping us raise almost $7000. Special sprout-outs to our generous neighbors Hometown BBQCalexico, and Sixpoint for donating delicious food and drink, and Ushka for her musical mixings. Check out pics from a beautiful, celebratory evening on the farm!
Cheers to summer!
