You Can Do It

We’re so excited to announce that this Thursday, July 19th, we’ll have a special guest with us at the River Vale Farmers Market!  Jenny Lichtenwalner, owner of Charlie Thyme, will be at our booth to talk to our customers about how to preserve their favorite Stokes Farm produce with canning.  Jenny will be conducting mini-demos and will be available to answer questions about canning.  Stop by to chat and pick up a couple of canning recipes.  We hope you can join us for this fun afternoon- the weather will be cooler and you can visit all of the great vendors at the River Vale market.

Jenny will also be at the Old Tappan Public Library on Thursday, August 2nd to present a more in-depth canning presentation.  And keep an eye out for more information on a fall canning program to be held at the farm!
