Genuine Faux Farm By the Numbers
Many of you already know that Rob likes his numbers. Sometimes, the numbers actually interest other people as well, so we thought we would share a few that might be enjoyable.
|Mr Aubergine wants to know...|
36,827 - the number of cucumbers harvested on our farm since 2006. Yep, that's about 3000 a year. All that time picking cucumbers and wondering when the cucumber frog is going to startle the farmer...
164 and 11.1 - the number of songs a typical GFF month's music play list contains and the number of hours that playlist would normally take to play in its entirety. Last year's Harvest Festival play list was only 134 songs, so I guess I fell short on that one, but the days were getting shorter, so 8.8 hours was usually pretty good.
250, 350, 400, 500, 600, 800 - the number of dollars it takes to sign up for one of our CSA share programs. There are many options that may fit you and your family. Luckily enough for you, we have openings and are now taking reservations! Prices on the website are current, even if the farmer missed changing the year date on the web.
Genuine Faux Farm, A History
There WERE Foxes on the Genuine Faux Farm

That Old Barn Was Good for Something
The Year the Cucumbers Would NOT Grow
You Did What When?!?
Would you like your plants to get big and healthy this year? Diligently prune off the flowers just as Tammy did in her family's garden. Just remember that you won't get any fruit if you take off ALL the flowers. But, then again, if that's the goal you want....
Deliveries by GFF Started Earlier Than You Think
Officially, the Genuine Faux Farm started operations in 2005. But, the very first deliveries were made years earlier - even before Rob and Tammy met. The produce came from the 'garden' Grandpa Faux maintained and he was happy to have a high school baseball player available to run the gauntlet that were essentially 'drive-by vegetablings.'
