The growing season is now over. The farmers markets are closed for the season as is the farm. The markets will open again in May and the farm earlier–weather permitting.
JR Duncan and everyone else who works with us at the Borden Farm joins me in extending our thanks for your support in this past year. Given the vagaries of Mother Nature and the health challenges that both JR and I faced, it could have been a terrible year. But it was a very good year in major part thanks to your support and patronage. Grateful for that we are.
Even though the farm is closed for the season, we do have some specials going on that may be of interest to you.
Gift certificates are available in any denomination–with a 25% discount from face value if purchased before the first of the New Year. For example a $20 dollar gift certificate will cost you only $15 and is good for any plant or product we sell at the markets or at the farm during the 2014 growing season.
Garden rentals are also now available for the 2014 growing season. The rate for the season is $50.00 for a plot that is 20 by 50 feet. We till it for you and you plant, weed and harvest. The plots are located in full sun, behind a 10 foot fence to keep the deer out, and if it doesn’t rain an inch a week, we water it for you as we water our own gardens. Garden rentals paid for by March 1st receive a 10% discount.
Our book on farm nostalgia, “Ruminations” continues to be available though limited copies remain. The total cost including shipping and mailing is $15.00. We will send the book out the next day with an invoice for your payment. A great holiday gift it is.
If you want to place an order or have questions, call Win Borden at 218-232-0848 or contact us at Win@BordenFarmMarket.com Thanks again for your support this past year. We look forward to having you at the farm when we open in the spring.
