Please Consider a Donation to the Many Hands Sustainability Center

Each year at this time, we ask our farm customers to consider making a donation to support the work of the Many Hands Sustainability Center (MHSC).  Through the MHSC, we are able to take the risk of hiring recovering addicts who are not yet re-integrated into society.  It is a win-win relationship for both sides, because we are able to benefit from the contributions they bring to our farm, while at the same time we are able to help folks get back on their feet.  Please follow this link to learn about the highlights of 2016, and to make a

Turkey Time Is Here Again!

Dear friends,

            As has been our practice for more than 2 decades, we are again raising certified organic pasture raised turkeys for Thanksgiving. We love these raucous and nosey birds that move toward people, as opposed to chickens who move away. They started life inside in the brooder house with a nice array of certified organic feed, a shovelful of garden dirt, some dandelion greens and comfrey each day. They moved onto range after one month of age and have been moved daily since then.

New Year’s resolution 2016

Dear Friends of Many Hands Organic Farm,
 
I have made a New Year’s resolution to write to you each month this year. This resolution is in part made possible by the “hiring” (for barter) of Kathleen Geary and Roshni Prabakar to help with Mail Chimp deliveries, website management, and generally with office data management – never my forte. Nina Marcinowski remains as our bookkeeper, also for barter. David Petrovick hired on last summer to manage our machinery for us, on an as needed basis, and both Jack and I are thrilled with the relationship.
