Welcome to Week 1, it's finally here! Are you excited? We certainly are! Foodie adventure is calling!
There are a ton of things going on at the farm any given day of the week. This is where we will keep you updated about all of these things including the progress of our shared investment.
It has been a crazy month finishing up everything for the CSA and as you can imagine COVID19 made us rethink EVERYTHING. Although it has been difficult we feel it has made us stronger as a crew. We are proud to be the first farm in our local area to implement safety procedures not only for our farmstand, customers, and crew, but also extending those same methods to our CSA farm share and it's members.
The fields are prepped and planted! We laid miles of plastic and planted thousands of seedlings and seeds. It was many snowy and rainy days of planning and meetings. When the rains stopped, we got out there as early as we could and stayed out there as long as we could. There were so many dark til' dark days, more than we can count.
Despite our cold and wet spring our technique of using new products such as row cover and the incorporation of our new high tunnels, we are proud to be able to supply you with a wonderful bounty for your first week.
We need a rain dance, who's game? Things are really dry out there right now and we are hoping for rain. On the other hand the warmer weather has really helped pushed some of the other crops along. We're staying super busy keeping up with weeds and irrigating as much as possible.
You asked and we listened. Look for many new vegetable varieties coming this year. A big thank you to our founding members for all of the care and feedback you provided, it helped shape the 2020 season.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions what-so-ever about the CSA or your share, call (413) 800-5583 or email email@example.com.
Thank you again for investing in our farm and we'll be seeing you soon!
