The last week of the farm season has arrived and we have a lot of food for you. Please be prepared and bring bags, boxes and helpers. Potatoes, winter squash and onions are the big crops but we have more carrots, cabbage, and greens to fill your chiller drawers as well. This final week is always a decathlon of sorts for me and the crew. We work these shortening days that are bookended by frost, harvesting the last leaves and roots. Hauling full trucks up from the fields we wash, sort and organize these hardy crops putting together our last work of the year and what we hope will be some great meals for you in the weeks to come.
Thanks for being a member of the farm this year. Your willingness to travel through a farm season with us, eating our way from spring to fall is what makes this farm thrive. We will rest and rebuild for another season and we hope to see you again next June.
Your spuds this week are unwashed. The reason is that they store better without the handling it takes to wash them. A quick rinse in the sink with a brush or the palm of your hand and they will glow.
Spring and the 2016 season is coming…
Many thanks to all of you who have signed up for 2016 already. Throwing your hat in with us now makes a huge difference for us as we plan our way towards another great season. Those who sign up now can take full advantage of our winter payment plan (not to mention its just done – and you don’t have to remember to do it later!).
