Plum Granny Farm Weekly Update -- Let the Holidays Begin!

Posted 11/28/2014 9:08am by Cheryl Ferguson.

Hello Farm Friends!  Happy Friday!

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with friends, family, relaxation and all the things you are thankful for!

Our focus this week has been to get ready for the Holiday Season.  It has definitely been a jamming week!  Jen and Cheryl spent lots of time at the Camp Hanes kitchen making batch upon batch of your favorite jams.  We made large jars and gift-size jars and are all ready for you and your orders!  Just as a reminder, check out our website to learn more about the jam that we make -- we now have NINE varieties!  And we are happy to ship!

Jam gift boxes are ready to go

We have been harvesting more of the turmeric and will have lots for Saturday's market.  Here are Jen and Chris showing off their handiwork!

We have been working especially hard to get ready for our Holiday Market and Open Greenhouse event tomorrow (11/29 from 10-4).  It's our first time to participate in Small Business Saturday and it has been fun to get all of the cool things they have put together for the day -- everything from posters to balloons and even a welcome mat!  We have partnered with Buffalo Creek Farm and Creamery to promote the event at both of our farms.  At our farm, there will be a wide variety of products to choose from including baked goods, peanut butters, truffle products, eggs, produce, gift items, photographs, wreaths and more!  Help us welcome BeNutty Bakes and Butters, Greenberries Farm, Truffles NC and Front Door Designs by Jonna to our farm! There will even be a campfire for s'mores, refreshments, lots of door prizes and you can even choose & cut your own cedar Christmas tree! Shop Small, ya'll!
