Farm Happenings for September 16, 2020

Posted on September 16th, 2020 by Tim VonThun

It is crazy how we have already reached week 16 of the CSA season! We want to thank you all for being a part of our CSA Farm Share program this year and hope you have enjoyed it so far! 

This week is also the 6th and final fruit share week. Fruit shares will be receiving Apples, peaches and a watermelon! 


This year has been a great corn season and so far I am happy to say that it has been delicious and I have seen very few worms, however this time of year, with more storms blowing up from the south, it is much harder to keep the corn free of worms. We are doing our best and hope to continue to have mostly "clean" corn, but if you do get one or two ears with a worm in it please just cut the top off and use the rest of the ear. We do hope to have corn for the next few weeks and this is a great time of the year to freeze it and save it for the winter!


In you bags this week will be VIP Passes for our fall season. They are the equivalent to a general admission ticket and will give you access to our activity area, hayrides, corn maze and pumpkin patch (pumpkins and apple are extra). This year we are doing timed tickets for entry to manage crowds due to Covid, so the VIP passes will be a little bit different than in the past. This fall your VIP passes will be valid on any September weekend day (Sept 19, 20, 26 or 27), or on a Thursday or Friday in October (this year our activity area will also be open Thursdays and Fridays throughout October.) These are traditionally a slower part of the season for us and will allow you to come at any time you like on those days. (You will NOT need to make a reservation to use your VIP passes like our traditional customers.)  If you need to purchase any additional admission tickets you can do that through our website:
