Blueberries coming - get your freezer ready!
As many of you know, Seth spent fifteen consecutive August days harvesting organic blueberries right here at Crystal Spring Farm. And yes we will be taking orders next week. This will give you some time to make room in your freezer! We will have thirty pound boxes available for $115. Order information will be sent out via email and newsletter next week and we're hoping to have the berries here the following week or two. The boxes measure 15.5" x 11.5" x 8.5". Stay tuned.
(And we will have two pound bags available in the coming weeks as well.)
9,000 pounds of potatoes!
We had an enthusiastic & determined crew on Labor Day for our annual potato harvest. All age groups were well represented - from toddlers to 70-somethings! And it was hot! We gathered up 9,000 pounds of potatoes while catching up with pals and making some new connections! We love our community -- thank you!
With the return to school our crew has downsized in number - we are grateful for our four strong and steady women who keep the farm chugging along into the fall season. We've been harvesting winter squash like crazy. What we left behind in the field will be picked up by volunteers with Merrymeeting Gleaners to share with our neighbors at the Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program.
