Circle Brook Farm Event Schedule

Every year John Kruger opens up his farm for members to take a tour and get together for a picnic.  In addition, he has days that he needs help harvesting throughout the season.  

Here is the 2018 schedule.

Farm Visit: June 23rd and 24th, 10:00 AM- 4 PM 
Saturday 6/23 will be the main day for CSA members with Sunday, 6/24, 11 AM to 4 PM as a rain date and for anyone who cannot make it on Saturday. This will be a potluck picnic, please bring a vegetarian dish to share with others. Grills will be available for anything you wish to bring to cook. There will be tours of the fields at 11:00 am and 1:30 pm. There is a u-pick strawberry farm just north on Rt. 206 if anyone would like pick strawberries for themselves before or after the event. Volunteers are welcome to help with set up and parking. A state park, Kittatinny Valley, is nearby with wonderful trails and campsites available. This year John is also asking for volunteers to help pick peas for an hour or two prior to the start of the farm visit on Sunday.

Volunteer days: Come out to Circle Brook Farm and lend a hand! John certainly can use the help. On Sundays during the delivery season, he will have volunteer days. These will be to help with harvesting labor-intensive crops like peas, beans, garlic, and onions. For these volunteer days, members should notify John directly by e-mail of their intention to attend. Please send him an e-mail during the week prior to the event and not weeks or months ahead.
