It’s that time of year again, for us to invite neighbors and farm supporters of all kinds to our annual fall fundraiser, Celebrate the Harvest. Sunday, October 7 from 2-5pm, will be an afternoon of good food, games, prizes, and more! Then that evening, at 6pm, we welcome the band The Hunts to a benefit concert right at the farm. Come see how supporting 5 Loaves farm, through either your giving or purchasing our produce, helps make an impact in our community.
It is a time to celebrate with our neighbors the good things that are growing at the farm. We’ll enjoy delicious homemade soups made from ingredients grown on the farm, fall deserts – including fresh pumpkin spice donuts (again made with pumpkins grown on the farm), and prizes from local artisans and food producers. You’ll get to check out the ongoing redevelopment of the new farmhouse next to farm and get to meet some of the young people from the neighborhood that have been a part of growing 5 Loaves Farm over the past year.
Admission to the afternoon is free and we ask that you pay as you can for the soup and treats. Tickets for the concert are $12 and are available here.
We hope you’ll also come to understand the different ways you can support 5 Loaves Farm; from being a CSA member, to visiting our stand at the Elmwood Village Farmers Market, to attending our Contemplation and Cultivation group that meets each Saturday during the growing season, or learning how you can help mentor the youth that work with us on the farm. We are also looking for local business to sponsor the event as well as donate items to be raffled off during the event. Please contact us, or click here to find out more details.
It has been a bountiful year and we are so grateful to get to continue to grow food for our community, right in the heart of the community. So again, please come out and join us as we celebrate and give thanks for the bountiful blessings we’re experiencing – and hope you are experiencing as well – at 5 Loaves Farm!
