Farm Happenings for December 4, 2019: Week 10 out of 12!

Posted on November 29th, 2019 by Robinette Farms

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

The Fall CSA is now in the last 3 weeks of distribution and here in the farm office, I'm getting all the details organized for our Winter CSA! Details and registration information will be coming out SOON and space will be limited, so if you want to participate in the Winter CSA, pay attention to the CSA Facebook Page and the weekly Farm Happenings!

Things are finally slowing down on the farm; most of our outside farm cleanup work is done and we are beginning our period of reflection and refinement.

What does that mean? This is the time of year where it slows down enough that we have time to run through the exercise of reflecting on the season we just finished and refining our goals for the upcoming season.

What went right? What went wrong? What can we improve on? What do we need to make those improvements? Is there anything we should get rid of or add to the farm? (Plus many more important questions!)

Farming and most of life are about continuous improvement and without opportunities for reflection and strategic planning, organizations and individuals can often get stuck spinning their wheels and find themselves in a place of no inspiration, no motivation, or simply being left behind as the world moves forward around them.

As part of our reflection on this season, we are grateful for the continuous support of our CSA community. Being part of a CSA requires extra effort on your part to make an extra stop each week to pick up your vegetables, pay attention to the emails I send (!!), and be creative in your kitchen with fresh, local veggies and products. We understand this and do our best to make CSA as convenient as possible, and appreciate your commitment to supporting local farmers and local businesses.

We couldn't do this without you all, so THANK YOU!

Happy Eating!
Farmer Chloe and family
