"Living Water" Demo

Saturday, November 19 11am to 3pm
Tudasay, November 22, 12noon to 4pm

We realize that knowing what you eat is important to
you and your family because you are a member of the CSA.

Buying local organic foods is a very important part
of living a healthy life and clearly food is necessary to live,
and so is WATER.

Do you know exactly what is in your water?

Are you drinking from the best WATER SOURCE?

Do you know about LIVING WATER?

…LIVING WATER that you can have in your own home?

LIVING WATER is alkalized water, - like the water that the Hunza people
drink from, where people have a history of longevity and great health.

We would love to invite you to get your water tested for free and
to learn about how Living Water can be an option in your
family's journey to living a healthy life.

Please drop by to see the demonstrations, try some of the Living Water
and please remember to bring a sample of whatever water your family drinks,
so we can test it for you.

Saturday November 19th 11-3 Tuesday November 22nd 12-4pm

Our Wine Tasting on Friday, September 16th at the Stono Market was a huge success. It was a great time to check out some of the wines that will be available in our CSA Wine Share this fall, and meet other CSA members. Great wine, good fellowship as well as a little good food.

Check out Farmer Pete's video on Channel 5! Thanks for all of your votes.

Congratulations to the winners of the Heirloom Tomato Contest winners!

Here's where Farmer Pete shows you how to prune your plant!

Name Our Goats Contest

Ambrose Family Farm wants to introduce the newest members of our family Ashley, the dark colored goat, and Vanilla, the light colored goat. These cute goats are both middle age Nanny (girl) goats. They needed a home and there just so happened to be plenty of room on our farm. We don't have any information about what kind of goats they are, but we do know that they are the kind that LOVE TO EAT!

The Maher children named Ashley and little Miss Ollard named Vanilla in the recent "Name Our Goat Contest". Thanks kids-forgive the pun-you did a great job.

There were lots of entries for this naming contest, and the decision was really hard for Farmer Pete and Farmer Sam, but after much discussion, the names were chosen. Now, we are in the process of choosing new collars and having special name tags made so you won't get confused anytime you are on the farm and choose to visit these two special girls. Remember, they like green things to eat, so when you visit, try to take them a little treat-like a small branch off a tree that has lots of leaves on it, a leaf off the broccoli or turnips, or maybe a little sticker bush from the side of the ditch. Goats love to eat green things that grow taller than grass because they don't really like to bend down to eat.
