Holiday Greetings from Cross Island Farms

Dear Friends and Patrons of Cross Island Farms,

As the end of 2012 draws ever closer, David and I here at Cross Island Farms are counting our blessings.

We are so grateful for your support and patronage over the past seven (!) years. It is because of you, our friends and patrons, that we have been able to gradually grow our farm and offer you an ever expanding array of products.

We have been thrilled with your response to our USDA inspected cuts of beef, pork and goat, and our holiday ducks and turkeys, all recently added to our offerings. (FYI, just arrived, is an assortment of cuts of organically raised, grassfed goat including hot and sweet sausage, roasts, chops, stew and ground.)

Because you have often requested fruits, we are planning a major new perennial planting, an “Edible Forest” or “Forest Garden” to contain fruits, nuts, berries, edible ground covers and vine fruits, as well as a duck pond and a contemplative sitting area. We hope to create an accessible path within the landscape so those with ambulation challenges will still be able to enter and enjoy the forest’s ambiance. As the forest becomes established there may be U-pick opportunities as well as quantities of fruits and berries available at our roadside stand and other venues.

As many of you are aware, we are open year round. When you are in the area, we inivite you to stop by and say hi, and perhaps join us for a tour of our farm to see all we have accomplished thanks to your support. And if you are looking for a gift for your health conscious friends and family members, we can email a Cross Island Farms gift certificate tailored to your wishes.

Happy Holidays and best wishes for a fruitful New Year!
