Last week, we experienced a severe rain and windstorm that knocked out power to the JCA and many local businesses, schools, and homes for days. Luckily, our office staff had a previously-scheduled retreat planned to visit Ten Apple Farm in Gray for a Goat Hike, which we highly recommend! On Friday we enjoyed time together learning about Jewish farming, local food, and goat husbandry, hiking through the woods, and eating a delicious lunch, some of which we harvested ourselves.
Thanks so much to Margaret Hathaway and Karl Schatz for hosting us and for a wonderful hike & meal. Come meet the husband and wife team behind Ten Apple Farm on Dec. 12th at the JCA for The New Portland, Maine Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the Coast of Maine Book Talk with Author Margaret Hathaway & Photographer Karl Schatz.
