Farm Manager, Mike Rassweiler seeks to keep the Administration simple and accessable.  Primary data collection is all pen and paper, transfered to summary format at the end of the season.  Administration is the back drop for all other activities, the better we do here, the better our business will be.

Tomato Fight – words have so many meanings…

Our intent is Fun, Celebration and Sharing – space, time…

Our 4th annual, the Tomato Fight began many thousands of years ago, September 12, 2010 will be one more in the history of tomato pickers, family and friends, around the world.

Party starting at 6 pm – Tomato fight begins before Dusk.

Nomad Pizza will be there serving their specialities – Pizza, More Fun, Serious Perspective and Playful Insight…

There will be T-Shirts ($12 each), and a contribution box.

Bring a change of clothes, swimsuits optional, BYOBeverage.

If you want your farm recognized “officially” please bring a few buckets (at least) of Soft Tomatoes.  Ultimately, the vision of farms, sponsoring teams (with tomatoes) has been shaping.  To date, the rules are:

Soft Tomatoes Only – with stems removed.

Tomatoes are not intended to Hurt – but YES to SPLAT!

Stay in the Tomato Fight Area, as designated by “Hey You, get back to where the other crazy people are!”

Don’t go into the Fight Area unless you are prepared to be Splatted by Tomatoes.  Wear Shoes and Assume You Will Get Hurt !

If new to the event, please introduce yourself, the t-shirt Table near the Pizza Truck will be a good place.
