Much to do here at the farm! It’s been a strange spring. Early in some ways, late in others. We have tomatoes and squash in the ground earlier than ever but our first round of greens are moving slowly with less sun and cooler soils than usual. For now some basic announcements:
CSA Shares and How to Make Payments…
We have officially sold out of shares for 2014. Many thanks to all of you who have thrown your hats in for another exciting season. If you would like to make a payment towards your share please follow this link or mail us a check. If you are not sure what you owe please check your records & that fails send us an email & we’ll check for you.
If you missed out and would like to be first on the list for possible share openings this season (or to sign up for next year) follow this link to our wait list.
When will the CSA start?
We have not picked a start date for the CSA yet as we are waiting to see how our greens do this week. The ice and snow in April kept us out of the fields later than usual and the cool spring has slowed many things we have planned for the first harvest. When we make a decision as to a start date we will send out an email to let everyone know so watch your inboxes.
Pick up Times
When we do start harvesting, the veggies will be here for pick up on Tuesday or Friday from 2-7pm each week. Bring bags!
New Member Orientation: Saturday May 31 or Sunday June 1, Both at 4:00 pm
For members that are new to the farm, you are welcome to come meet us and learn the lay of the land. If you cannot make those time, do not worry, we will be here at the distribution times to show you the ropes and answer any questions you have about the farm.
We are again hosting a fish share at Crystal Spring CSA. Local fish and shellfish delivered each week on Fridays (available for Brunswick members only) during June and July. The first pick-up will be on Friday June 6, same hours as CSA pick-up. Visit their website Salt and Sea for more details and to pay online.
Egg shares will be available again this year. These are the same fresh organic eggs from our friends Karen and Ted at Sparrow Farm. Bright yellow yolks and stand tall whites -grocery store store eggs can’t even compare. The egg share will run from the week of June 16th through the week of October 27th (20 weeks) for $110. This is the best way to make sure you always have a dozen eggs when you come for your produce. To sign up and pay click here.
Our upic field is shaping up nicely. Peas are up and we were able to transplant many flower varieties this week. Look for peas, beans and edamame along with herbs to be our first crops out here.
Thanks Everyone! We will see you at the farm soon!
