Spring Barn Cleaning at Easter Egg Acres

  • Apr 28, 2013 · 11:15 AM
  • Easter Egg Acres

Want another way to help our local farmers?  Easter Egg Acres needs help this weekend cleaning their barn.  It's a big job and they're offering compensation in the form of the products they produce on their farm.

I'm going on Sunday, but they need volunteers all weekend.  If you can't make it on Sunday afternoon, I know they'd be grateful for the help at another time too.  Let me know if you'd like to get in touch with them.

See details below...

 

Socialites have Pool Parties! Rednecks have Poo Parties!

Here's a bribe for anyone with a strong back and good hands and tolerance for poo...we are looking for volunteers for our Barn Cleaning Party the last weekend of the month. REWARD...a box of farm fresh goodies per volunteer/team. Must give 4 hours on any of the 4 days F- M April 26-29th. There will be lots of destruction, and hand shoveling involved but we will be tractoring the major parts of the project. It's the access(destruction), and nooks andcranies that need human help. REWARD boxes will include not only farm fresh milk, eggs, & cheese, but farm pork chops, canned fruits and veggies and our & our girls eternal thanks.Poo Party!

We are located 17 miles (45 min) straight east of Colorado Springs on the map. Children are welcome as long as they stay and are supervised by their adult. We have plenty of age appropriate jobs available. Since my adult son left the farm for something easier (the Marines) we have fallen very much behind on a lot of basic care and cleaning. With my bad back (sx 2000) I ask for help so I don't wear out my hubby, he's gotta last me the next 50 or so... The hours will be 8-4 with an hour lunch break and we'll make some BBQ pulled pork and bring a side to go along if you'll be here for lunch. Looks like a Poo party in the making. Thanks. See you there.

    Unfortunately I am not available this weekend or I definitely would sign up. No objection to a little poo and a great love for farm fresh products. Wish I could be there.
