2017 CSA Week 2017

by danberube on September 25, 2017

Hello Farm Friends!

It’s the final week! We made it through the season, our first on the brand new farm. Thank you all so much for your support this year as our farm found a new home and continued to grow. It’s been a joy seeing all the hard work pay off and sharing the harvest with you! I’ll miss seeing you all every week at pickup, but it’s time for the soil and the farmer to get some rest and gear up for 2018.

Thank you for supporting local agriculture. It means so much to me and my fellow farmers.

-Dan

2017 CSA Week 12

by danberube on September 17, 2017

Hello Farm Friends!

We’re preparing for a big rainstorm on Tuesday. Over an inch of rain is expected, which means we have to get as many tomatoes harvested as possible, because the ripe ones will fill up with too much water and burst! If you have any tomatoes in your home garden, pick the ripe ones Monday night so you don’t lose them.

Other than that, it’s business as usual. We probably won’t have anything new in the share for the rest of the season, but we’ve still got plenty of butternut squash, cherry tomatoes, peppers, leeks, kale, and more to enjoy.

Remember we’ve only got 2 weeks left, so make sure you use up all your pickups for the season. If you need to know how many you have left, please email me.

Thanks,

-Dan
