Garlic Harvest Party: August 3rd


It’s a Foodie-Fest;

a Work Bee

& a Potluck!


Ninth Annual Swier Family Farm Garlic Harvest Party


Saturday 3rd August

9am – 5pm (or until done!)

potluck around 1pm, or so


Yep, it’s a Party and you’re all invited! Come one, come all, bring your friends and family! (no, you don’t have to be part of the CSA, of course not!)

Come for an hour, come for the day, stay into the night! We’ll be visiting with friends old and new – getting to know our CSA friends better and better. You’ll see where and how your food is grown. We’ll eat around 1pm (or so). We can take a farm tour after lunch, if you’d like.

Bring an instrument if you’d like, and a camera. Please no pets.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact me directly. Need directions? Just ask. Don’t let anything hold you back from coming and enjoying!

(Come rain, come shine, come hot, come cold…. We’ve got plenty of large, covered shelters from the rains and the shines; nice places to take a break, have a seat, do some shade work, visit with friends new and old, eat some food, drink some drink.)


It’s a Potluck (around 1pm, or so)

bring a dish or drink to pass!

Please bring a dish to pass. This is one of the year’s best meals, guaranteed! (or your food back?) The food’s been absolutely exceptional, delectable, incredible and inspiring each and every year. Always been great company to share it all with too.

Bring any picnic ware you might have, your favorite drink(s), some outdoor chairs, if you can.


thank you!


It’s a Work Bee

“You should market this as therapy!”

Come prepared for the weather, whatever it may be, and for some work. There’s all sorts of work for all sorts of people. The harvesting of garlic, as we do it, is time and labor intensive – and we’re going to get it done!

We’ve got work on your hands and knees, standing straight up, sitting in a chair, and on ladders – oh my! I’m telling you, something for everyone!

Wear some work clothes – and bring a second (third?) set, just in case. Be prepared for the elements – and bring some hand pruners, if you’ve got them (to cut the “necks” of the garlic).


We are a working farm, and you will help us get this work done!
