Have you ever noticed the difference between a ripe, freshly picked, home-grown tomato and a store bought one??? Well I sure have!

Want to drive a tractor? Harvest potatoes? Enjoy freshly picked beets? How about gathering (and eating!) freshly laid eggs? Or making your own veggie starts to take with you?  Be ready to dig in for this hands on experience in farming. Learn organic farming basics and have fun!

Come join us at Crave Catering’s “Crave Family Farm,” and see why we are so passionate about growing our own and sharing how you can too!

**Free eggs for those who bring their own gloves and water bottles!**

Crave Catering will provide a farmers feast as well as thirst quenching libations!
