This page contains news, event information, and other items added by myself, the intrepid farmer-in-process at Old 99. I send out a message every week, but most are set with a delete date about two weeks later. I archive some of the posts if they have content other than weekly availability of produce and meat.
You can send me questions too, which if they are of a general nature, I can post to this Old99 blog.
Old 99 FArm cider day sat Oct 21
It’s a combined message this week, first an invitation to come out with kids (or not) and enjoy a potluck apple cider pressing. I do have 8 bushels of apples but you may want to contribute some too. start time 2 pm till about 5. should be nice day but will be making biochar too which means a fire to stay beside.
We have lots of greens, roots, tomatoes, peppers this week still. I will have fresh beef in two weeks, so you may want to check if there’s room in the freezer for a quarter. Carrots special on bulk buy 4kg or more.
Do you feel like the public is not getting the full story about Climate Change and maybe you would do things differently if you knew the facts? Don’t miss Fri.
