JANUARY 27, 2021 In so many ways, have said "GOODBYE!!!" to 2020. Have been spending these cold, wet Winter months outside, getting things prepared for a serious head start to the 2021 growing season. So ready to be back out providing your families' needs for food and goods to help you stay self-sufficient and healthy!
What's new! The Hickory Hens' eggs will be available again starting approximately early Spring. Watch for lots of yummy recipes, too.
The new chicks are growing quickly and looking forward to bringing you the most delicious, nutritious....and BEAUTIFUL eggs. The "big girls" are enjoying their Winter Break and heading into retirement, while keeping the chicks in check. Hercules is looking forward to teaching the baby roos his crow and how to fend off "evil sky monster" attacks. "Layla's" Eggs should be coming ready around March.
New addition to the farm are the ducks. Such fun, happy go lucky critters! Watch for "Quackers" Eggs probably shortly after the chicks start laying. anticipating around May.
Be sure to check out the Pinewoods Farms Farm Club Membershipto see how you can save on most PF offered goods (20% per household, or Seniors 25%). It has become a customer favorite! Yep! It's good on the eggs and fresh produce, plants and more.
Fresh-cut Flowers Some beautiful blooms to choose from early Summer, including: Hydrangeas, Sunflowers, Dahlias, Zinnias, and more. By the bunch and bouquets.
Ornamentals (Perennials, Annuals, Shrubs and Trees) In 2020 with the COVID situation, I felt a bit guilty promoting the 'frivalous' items, and put these on the back burner. These items do bring so much joy to so many people, so will still be offering them. Going forward I am working toward growing more of my own stock to have control over quality, quantities, and varieties available, and bringing in less from outside suppliers. Looking for something? I can probably still get it in....just ask!
Facebook, Instagram, MeWe ... Social Media Am not currently able to access my original PF facebook account, so all updates will be posted here on the Pinewoods Farms website. UPDATE (FEBRUARY): Have created a newPinewoods Farms facebook page for occasional announcements. The website is still the best resource for information, news, announcements. There's a lot more content to post for your benefit, more easily accessible anyway, so time better spent. Simply bookmark this page on your browser to check back frequently, &/or request to be added to the Updates E-Mail List. Making more use of Instagram and MeWe, so be sure to follow there, too. Have been searching for years, and so far, MeWe seems to be the most useful fb alternative. Watch for specials here and there!
Farmers' Markets, Roadside Stands, Delivery Currently not anticipating to be participating in any Farmers' Markets this year. Instead, will likely be setting up a Roadside Stand (or two) in the area. Am planning to continue offering deliveries for those in need, as my workload allows. Currently have one day marked for Virginia Beach (Oceanfront/Sandbridge), and one day marked for Chesapeake (Great Bridge). Drop-offs will be afternoon-early evening. You do *not* have to be present. I am glad to leave your items on your front porch (or accessible designated area). For perishable items, please leave a cooler w/ice pack(s). Pre-ordered pick-ups can be arranged for Farm Stand days.
Shop Location Update (Fall 2020) Had been planning to move into a new shop location in Great Bridge, but, as with many things, 2020 had other plans....wrong timing-wrong location, Am sorry for my customers who were looking forward to a physical location, however, am confident 2021 will bring much better opportunities and results. Still looking for the perfect location that fits my visions for the best experience I can offer you!
Pre-Orders (Early Spring Veg Plants) Starting to come online second week of February..... Will be taking pre-orders of herbs & vegetable plants (cell packs/4" pots) to help you secure top-quality, naturally-grown plants, -grown right here at Pinewoods Farms. Sold out quickly last year, highly recommend grabbing them early. Local delivery will be offered in a limited range (Chesapeake: Great Bridge/Hickory areas, and Virginia Beach: Oceanfront/Sandbridge/Pungo/Great Neck, and established customers in other areas), -so far. Roadside Stand Pick-up also available. Plants will be ready starting late March. (Will have later date options for many varieties) Watch for the most delicious varieties of LETTUCE, SPINACH, KALES, and more... *Later season plants will also be available for pre-order soon! Including TOMATOES, PEPPERS, SQUASH, EGGPLANTS, MELONS, OKRA, HERBS, FLOWERS. Mostly heirloom varieties, some hybrids available.
