Patterson Farm grows 40 acres of strawberries every year to provide tourists and the surrounding communities with as many beautiful, red berries as they can eat. Already-picked and pick-your-own strawberries are packed in four-quart, cardboard boxes. The big questions is, especially in this increasingly environmentally-conscious society, what to do with them?
1) Bring them back when you pick your own strawberries to receive a quarter off your total.
2) Recycle them. Patterson Farm cannot reuse these boxes.
3) Create a craft out of them to win a Patterson Farm Gift Certificate!
For this Out-of-the-Box Contest, we encourage you to come up with a fun way to reuse your Patterson Farm four-quart box. You can cut it; you can color it; you can do whatever you wish.
To enter your idea, send a message to Patterson Farm on Facebook that includes your name, address, email and a short description of what you did. Submissions are due by midnight on Saturday, July 20, 2013. Photos and descriptions will be uploaded to Facebook on Monday, July 22, 2013. Here, people will "vote" for the winner by liking the photo that expresses their favorite idea, so tell your friends and family to vote. Voting will end Sunday, July 28, 2013 at midnight.
The entry that receives the most likes on Facebook will win a $25 gift certificate to Patterson Farm for fruits, veggies, flowers, shrubs, market merchandise or activities. The winner will be notified by e-mail by Monday, July 29, 2013. The prize will be mailed via first class mail. Upon the closing of the contest, all entries will be posted to the Patterson Farm Pinterest page.
