Hutchins Farm Potato Harvest Volunteer Day

 

Come help us harvest potatoes, Saturday Sept. 2nd, 9:30am – 1pm!

 

With the success of last year’s volunteer days we decided to do it again! While the 2017 season overall hasn’t been as rough as last year, just like last year we’re having a tough time hiring for our fall field crew to replace the folks who are heading back to school. So, we’ve decided to reach out and ask our loyal customers if they would like to pitch in and help us bring in the potato crop again.If you would like to volunteer please reply to info@hutchinsfarm.com! If there is limited interest we may have to cancel the event, so if you’re keen, please make sure to RSVP.

We will be meeting in the potato field – further directions and parking will be provided to our intrepid volunteers. (Not the same field as last year!)   Once we have assembled, Vegetable Production Manager Dan Kamen will tell you a little bit about potatoes, how we grow them, the varieties we grow, and how we’ll be harvesting them, and then we’ll get to it! If you have to leave early that’s ok, however it is important that you can be there on time for the instructions and explanation of our harvest systems at 9:30am. Digging potatoes may not seem that complicated, but organization is key!

Make sure to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty and closed-toe shoes or boots. Gloves are recommended. Water bottles are always a good idea. Because we live in such a litigious society, all volunteers will be required to sign a liability waiver. Children 10 and over are welcome as long as they are accompanied by their parents. So if you would like to spend a little time outside on Saturday helping us out, please RSVP! We will be very thankful for the hand.

Thanks,
-The Hutchins Farm team
