NOTES FROM THE FARM
Each week, owner of Stone Hollow Farmstead, Deborah Stone will offer a behind-the-scenes look at life on the farm, in hopes of sharing the entire journey of our farm to your table.
One of our dearest farmer friends Hab, from Habersham Farms, recently came into a huge supply of tomatoes; 4,000 pounds to be exact. He proposed that if we preserved half of his tomatoes for him, using our facilities, we could keep the other half. That’s close to 2,000 pounds of free tomatoes for our Bloody Mary mixes! This was music to our farmer ears! (These are the same tomatoes that have been in your share the last few weeks: beautiful and packed with tons of flavor!)
This Sunday is our fall farm dinner! We are adding the finishing touches to ensure the most beautiful evening under the stars for our closest friends and family. If you haven’t already purchased your tickets, do so today! There are only 4 more days to purchase. See you around the farm table!
