We are happy to announce the start of CSA distribution! Come to the farm Tuesday June 7th or Friday June 10th from 2-7pm to pick up the first harvest of the season. Bring bags!
We have some beautiful greens for you this first week along with chives to brighten your salads and stir fries. We’ve been waiting on the first planting of radishes so there’s a possibility they may arrive in your share this first week. We’ll know more on this front when we start the harvest on Tuesday. Strawberries are coming soon!
June is an exciting month, the first hints of fresh local produce to come. The greens of this month benefit from the long days and cool nights. Look for other additions to your share in the next couple weeks like strawberries and scallions.By the end of the month we will get into our first cabbage, broccoli, zucchini and kohlrabi.
We will be here to meet new members, greet old members, and answer any questions you may have.
Local Products Available for You to Buy:
We make an effort to bring in high quality locally grown products to enhance your eating experience and to support our local economy. If there are products you would like us to carry here, please let us know. You can expect to find milk, eggs, cheese, lamb, beef, chicken, maple syrup, and more.
Two Great Ways to Support Local Fisherman!
Lobster: Be sure to pick up a brochure with the information for Interstate Lobster Co-op of Harpswell. They will be delivering freshly landed lobster Tuesdays and Fridays – you just have to call to place your order by 11:00 am each pick up day. Their number is 833.5516.
Fish: Order your community support fish (CSF) shares with Port Clyde Fresh Catch. Pick up fresh fish delivered to the farm each Tuesday. For more information on how the CSF works see their webpages at http://www.portclydefreshcatch.com/productcart/pc/home.asp
Tofu, tempeh, mushroom share: This share will start in mid-June. We hope to have some samples next week of all three products for you to try. We’ll have information about this new share at CSA pick up.
See you at the farm!
