CSA week 14


If you have an egg share, we have a shortge of eggs right now so you may only get a half dozen eggs this week.  We're hoping the cooler weather helps the hens lay, but the hot weather sure has been tough on them.  we would like to make up the missing eggs - perhaps we could give out chickens or some extra produce?  please contact us  for this. 


Have a nice week!

The boxes will be very heavy again this week, so please be careful with the boxes and hold them from the bottom.  If you pick up at the corporate drop site, bring some extra bags to carry everything. 


Thank you!

Here's the CSA newsletter for the week:


2012 week 8


Please read the newsletters every week - we give a report on where crops are at so you know what to expect, and we will post any events we have in the newsletter as well.


A tip on Eggplants and Peppers - the ideal temperature for these crops to be strored is 50-55 degrees, warmer than a refridgerator.  You can put them in the warmest spot in your fridge, or maybe you're lucky to have a cold spot in your house!  these crops are damaged if kept too cold. 


Also, we'll have some tomaotes trickling in this week and they'll really start ripening in the next two weeks.  When you get tomatoes, they should be stored stem-down on a countertop at or below room temperature.  We ship them slightly under-ripe so it might take a day or two to ripen fully on your countertop.  We do this to preserve quality and prevent damage.  Tomatoes should not be refridgerated.

Welcome to the New Year!January 8th, 2018

Today is the first "warm" day of January 2018 - a balmy 35 degrees is forecast for the high, and the snow is getting a bit soft with the sunlight warming the ground.  Still, I'm spending the day

Think Globally Act Locally – making the case for supporting a CSA farmJanuary 24th, 2017

I’ve seen this as a bumper-sticker mantra for many years and have generally agreed, but hadn’t put much thought behind it.  After a 2016 defined by political drama, intense social dis
