Matching Contributions And Holiday Gifts

For the month of December Maple Rock Farm is extending a special offer. If you purchase a farm share to be donated to the food bank, we will match your contribution by 50% For example If you buy a $100.00 credit, we will match it with another $50.00 for a total of $150.00. This is a great opportunity to help your community and support a local farm at the same time.

We are trying to raise $10,000 by the end of the month. To do so we need your help. Please consider taking advantage of this special limited time offer. Tell your friends, family and neighbors. If just 100 people bought a $100.00 share we'd meet our goal.

Also, are you looking for a unique Eco friendly gift to give for the holidays? Why not consider giving the gift of locally grown produce. Shares can be purchased starting at $50.00! Who would'nt enjoy receiving such a gift. Delivery can begin anytime for any of our seasonal goods.

We are also accepting membership and renewals into our CSA/Farmshare program. Join us and you will eat the best you ever have. We still have lots of produce in the field for immediate delivery.

Why? We are heading into our off season and are trying to come up with creative solutions to even out our cash flow. These are tough times and we need the support of our community right now more than ever. Maple Rock is commited to being a consistent producer of the freshest local produce available. We believe that by offering a quality, sustainably grown product and working together within our community we can overcome some of the short term difficulties we are experiencing. To do so, we need your support. Please join us today.

Keep well,

The last official farmers market of the season will be this Saturday 11/22/08 from 11:00 til 2:00 PM. We still have a great selection and this is your chance to stock up for thanksgiving. We'll have...

salad greens
braising greens
bok choi

I'll be taking orders for deliver next week also. If you can't make it to market. E mail me and we can make arrangements for delivery.

Business has been good. The nice weather this fall has extened things a bit and helped us push past or sales plan. So a year that began slowy and proved to be erratic and slower than normal has turned out to be a record breaker. Persistence pays off once again.

We still have lots of produce in the field. Give a call or drop me an E mail for availability and delivery.

Thanks to all you for another great season!

Farmer John
