It’s the last wonderful post, of the year!

We’re wrapping up our projects here at the farm, ensuring each gift has been sent and all roads lead to a fresh start this coming New Year.

Winter is quite the different experience on a farm. Where bright green and orange and red fruits had been sprouting before, there is now a dormant shrub or tree busy gathering all the requirements for the next season’s crops.

Where we had installed drip lines, and carefully planted tiny seed after tiny seed there is now just tilled dirt, full of last season’s leftover nutrients. Winter is nature’s natural recovery period. We take care of our soil in winter for a more fruitful bounty in spring and summer.

From all of us at Hurley Farms, we wish you a safe and happy New Year filled with love, laughter and plenty of fresh veggies!!

Last Minute Christmas Gift Panic!

Talk a stroll down For Instance Lane with me.

You’ve been invited to a holiday party, where the hosts are throwing a gorgeous party. You’ve minded your Ps and Qs, by offering to bring a dish. Your gracious host has declined, but Etiquetteer would severely frown on you for showing up with nothing. Your hosts also happen to be wine aficionados so the dusty bottle of whatever no big deal label you have isn’t going to cut it.

You type in to your search bar, “Hostess Gifts” and nothing is really doing it for you. Flowers aren’t personal, and chocolates during the holidays?! No way.

You scroll a bit and find our humble farm website, http://www.hurleyfarms.com.

You see we have many different offerings in the way of boutique jam, mustard, oils, and vinegars. You’re mind starts to wander…Yum, jam. And then you realize, we have gift baskets!

Our jam is so uniquely delicious, your hosts will be delighted to think of you whenever they spread our thick and rich jam across their morning breakfast bread. We can customize your basket, or you may choose one of our premade gifts. Each basket is hand packed and available for pick up or shipping.

In order to save you from the mundane and time consuming task of searching for your perfect holiday hostess gifts, order a few to have on hand along with an extra because it would be far too sad to give away all the delectable jam we lovingly make from scratch. A frequent customer of ours keeps several jars of our jam on hand as last minute thank you gifts for those who may have brought a gift without prior warning! She says our jams make the perfect spontaneous gift!
