Pear Harvest 2013

Pear Harvest time is here!  This year we asked for volunteers to help harvest the pears which worked out beautifully for everyone. The farm received many extra pounds of pears for animal feed, and the helpers took home as many free pears as they wished, as well as having a grand time !

We give a special thanks to the owners of the old pear farm, which has not been worked for several years, in allowing us to harvest these pears for organic animal feed. 

These pears will go a long way to finishing both the pigs and the turkeys at a great savings to the farm.

At the end of the day, best estimate is that we collected close to 6000 lbs of pears! Good job everyone!

Everett sees a pear he wants!
Can he reach it?
