This week is the last week of distribution. The end has come to what we think has been a pretty good year. Every season has crops that are above average (potatoes and onions) and are below average (winter squash/pumpkins) but at the end most of our hopes for the year were satisfied. We hope you feel the same way.
Over the past couple weeks we have batted around the possibility of having a pre-Thanksgiving distribution of produce. Our heavy supply of onions and potatoes sparked the idea but upon further thinking we decieded instead to pack it all up and send you home with it this week. As much as we would like to see you again in November, we thought you would be busy enough with preparations for the Thanksgiving and could do without one more stop on your supply routes.
Thank you, once again, for being an integral part of this farm. We’ll miss seeing your friendly faces and visits to the farm this winter. We’ll continue to be in touch with you via newsletters and perhaps updates on facebook, so “like us” if you haven’t already – if nothing else we can alert you to the sledding conditions on the hill.
End of Year Survey!
It is easy, will take a minute to complete, and is vital in making the farm a success next year and in the years to come. We take your comments and ideas seriously. Take the survey.

Broadening Access to CSA
This year we partnered with the MidCoast Hunger Prevention Program to provide four full CSA shares to families within their program. An individual donated one share this Spring, and we decided to offer three more. We have received very positive feedback from the families who were able to participate this year. Keep posted for ways in which you can help us expand this program to more families for 2012.
