CSA Week #7 - Customize

Posted on June 29th, 2022
This week has been one with a lot of activity. The market yesterday was our busiest one yet, and we were very glad of the extra hands from our crew to help customers. All week, the hayfield across from the farm has been getting cut, raked and baled so we've been working to the soothing sounds of old... read more »

CSA Week #7 - Pick Up

Posted on June 24th, 2022
Gadzukes, it's true! As predicted, the summer squash did start producing this week. So we will have some delectable first zukes at the market tomorrow, and will definitely have some available to go into boxes next week. We'll start off a little bit slow with our harvest estimates, but if we've learned... read more »

CSA Week #6 Customize

Posted on June 22nd, 2022
Well, we just don't know what to think about our prospects for weather. So far this week we've seen near freezing, super hard rain, hot and humid, AND thunder and lightning. I'll tell you what - I'm glad I'm not a plant that needs to suffer through all of it. We do get our fair share of the elements... read more »

Hello All! The season’s have finally changed it seems, and summer temps are just around the corner. It’s strange, but yesterday we were shivering cold harvesting in the rain, to the extent that we even turned on the nursery heater at lunch. And now today, we’re in short sleeves with... read more »

CSA Week #4 - Customize

Posted on June 8th, 2022
It’s beginning to look a lot like summer…every where we look… It’s definitely apparent when the nights stop freezing and the days reach into the 70s that plants start responding with new growth. The change is noticeable in your boxes this week as well as several new crops have... read more »

CSA Week #4 - Pick Up

Posted on June 3rd, 2022
It's that time - don't forget to grab your box this week at your chosen pickup location. How are you guys doing with your CSA boxes so far this season? We'd like to check in this week, and either remind you (if you're previous members) or let you know (if you're a new member) of a few things that are... read more »
