Summer has arrived we are clicking along here at the farm. Slow spring or not we are planning for another productive season. Crops from arugula to zucchini are in the ground with more filling in the fields everyday. This last week we put up our tomato tunnels and set out 850 heirloom and beefsteak plants. Sweet and hot peppers will go in soon as well as eggplant, cucumbers, our second succession of spinach and upic flowers.
Shares Still Available!
We have shares available for both Brunswick and our delivered CSA. If you’ve been waiting to sign up, a great time to get on board is now! Please also tell your friends about our fresh organic produce, picking flowers in the upic field, eating with the seasons, or whatever you love most about your farm share. It has been a reluctant spring. Dreary days that slow to warm have been the norm. But all of that is behind us and no matter what is happening in the turbulence of our local, state, or federal political scene you still have to eat and you might as well eat great food. Here’s the sign-up links for both Brunswick and delivered shares.
When does it start?
It’s a bit early to make a hard prediction of our start date. As always we plan and plant to harvest the first week of June but we will know more after another week of real growing weather. Stay Tuned…we will keep you informed of start dates via email.
We have an amazing line-up of add-on shares for you this season. Cheese from 5 different Maine creameries, Maine-raised mushrooms, artisan bread from James Beard award winning Standard Baking, delicious farmstead yogurt, pastured organic eggs, and new this year, our on-farm flower bouquet share. In addition, Brunswick members can order fresh Maine landed fish delivered to the farm. Follow this link for more information on adding these great shares to your weekly produce.
