Pea pickers needed at the farm!

Posted 6/14/2020 5:30pm by Jeff Schrimmer.

Hi Folks, Please pardon the poor planning but this is a last-minute plea for pea pickers. We have been doing okay up until now keeping up with the farm work.  My twelve workers have been putting in long days and working half days (6 hours) on Sundays. But with the warm weather, the crops and the weeds begin to grow fast. The first planting of peas took nearly 3 weeks to sprout and the 2nd and third plantings popped up much quicker. The result is that we now have peas of all kinds maturing prolifically.   This crop is one of the most labor intensive to pick and if my workers need to spend hundreds of hours on this task other jobs will be neglected.  We are asking for volunteers to come out an lend a hand. Anyone with a few hours to spare and who do not mind stooping or kneeling is welcome to come out and spend a few hours in the sunshine. Children are welcome and social distancing will be in effect.

Beginning Sunday 6/14 (aka today) at 1 pm. members are welcome to come out.   RSVP to kruegerjohn@earthlink.net or call or text me @ 973-332-6935.  We may set up a schedule on signup.com again going forward and there will be more volunteer opportunities during the season.

More info to follow in the next farm update.    

Stay healthy, Farmer John
