• Two weeks ’til the biggest party of the year (Details inside!)

    Posted on May 16, 2019 by in Uncategorized

    Don’t miss the fun!

    Every Memorial Day, we throw a big party to celebrate our entire community of foodies, and that includes you!  It’s a day that focuses on our shared love of food, our desire to learn more about it, and our commitment to teach our children.

    WHEN:  Monday, May 27 10am–2pm
    WHERE:  Jako Farm
    WHAT TO BRING:  Your family and friends
    THE COST:  It’s free!

    The truth about soil, and why you should care

    At the party, we’ll be focusing on our 2019 theme:  The Year of Soil Health.  You won’t want to miss these fantastic presentations:

    • “Regenerative agriculture, soil health, and local food issues” by Jessica Gnad, Soil Health Advocate.  How is grocery store food grown?  And why is it important to think beyond the aisles to seek out regeneratively-grown food?  This mom and researcher has practical answers.
    • “Biochar for a bountiful garden” by Dr. Trish Jackson, founder of HomeTree Gardens.  Biochar is charred plant material, which becomes a habitat for all kinds of soil life.  Participate in an interactive burn with Trish to learn how to make biochar in your own backyard.
    • “How Jako Farm is working toward healthy soil” by Daniel and Robyn King, owners of Jako Farm.  Learn how your JakoPure is becoming healthier, and how you can help!

    Hey kids, wear clothes that can get dirty!

    Dig through different kinds of soil and compost to hunt for earthworms, watch worms break down compost in a worm farm, help with a biochar burn, and more!

    Other cool things you might want to do:

    • Rock climbing on the silo (are you brave enough?)
    • Hay rack rides
    • Visiting the animals
    • Folk songs and dancing
    • Slack line

    All about the JakoPure lunch

    As always, come hungry!  We’ve got some amazing new recipes up our sleeves featuring JakoPure foods.  We’re not revealing secrets yet, but we will say that the lunch can accomodate GF, DF, and paleo diets.  Lunch will be served under the tents at 12:00.

    But before the party even gets here, don’t forget about this:

    Preschool story time starts this Thursday!

    Thursday, May 16 at 10:00 am, join our first preschool story time!  We’ll gather under a tree to read stories, do a craft, play together, and eat a JakoPure snack.  It’s going to be so much fun for the kids and so peaceful for you.  Meet other parents who are members of Jako Farm and stay for a BYO sack lunch if you wish.
