What's happening at the farm

CELLAR CONDITIONS

Strong to the finish!

The cellar holds steady at 39F and 90% humidity:

Sweet PotatoesPotatoes, ButternutSquash: These are all looking good and plentiful. We've never had such good quality and quantity of these crops this late in the season!!

Carrots: Still just a few sprouting slightly at the tops. Just brush off the sprouts, the carrots are still sweet and crunchy!

Parsnips, Gilfeather Turnip, Storage Radish (Black, Watermelon):  Looking good for the remainder of the share.

Onions: The yellow storage onions are good quality but in limited supply for the remainder of the winter.

What's In A Regular Season CSA Share

We're glad you've joined us and shared the harvest all winter! We want to make sure to let you know about what happens here the rest of the year, and invite you to join us for the regular season as well!

Throughout the season (June - Nov), your weekly share is made up of the freshest vegetables available from the farm. The variety and amount in the share depend on the season and the weather.

Your share will include between 6 and 22 lbs. (14 lbs. avg.) of produce each week from the first week of June 'til Thanksgiving.

The majority of your share is freshly harvested by our crew. When you pick up your share at the Farm Shop, you'll see bins of vegetables laid out. For the most part, your share will be "mix and match," so you can choose what is in your share.

The remaining 10% of your share is Pick Your Own. The PYO portion of your share will also be listed, by volume, on a chalkboard in the farm shop. There will be a map to make sure you can find the crops in the fields behind the barn, and a helpful apprentice to answer any questions. PYO crops include berries, peas, beans, herbs, cherry tomatoes, flowers and more.

We think this will be sufficient produce for 2 adults (non-vegetarian) or 1 adult (vegetarian).

The Farm Shop

Local shareholders come to the farm for pick-up. We set the share up "market-style," in order to offer shareholders a great deal of choice. We also sell staple foods and treats from other local producers.

REGULAR HOURS
Tuesday & Thursday 2pm - 7pm
Saturday 8am - 1pm

The Farm Shop is open three days per week. Each week (our week starts on Saturday), you can choose to come on whichever day is most convenient for you. You can Pick Your Own any time it's light outside!
