You may have heard about the recent Pokemon Go craze, and that our beloved Springdell Farms is a “Poke-Stop” in the game. As a result, folks are wandering the grounds at night, pulling in and out of the parking lot during peak hours, taking up valuable parking spaces, and not stopping to pay patron to the stand. As a reader of this blog, we’re preaching to the choir, however it is our hope for our farm and farmers that the folks coming to play the game will also support the grounds by grabbing a soda, fruit snack, or something as a thank you for visiting.  Here’s hoping!  

Speaking of characters around the farm, Sarah picked one up along with her share box today.  Everyone meet Flat Farmer!  He is traveling around to US farms, and made a stop at our very own Springdell Farms.  Farmer Jamie thought Flat Farmer would enjoy a day in the life of a CSA365 food blogger so he is here to cook with Sarah this week, you will see him return in her posts!
