UPDATE Sunday - June 21, 2020
Pop-up thundershowers in the forecast this week folks. Be sure to keep an umbrella in your car should the weather change.
Cultivating the sweet corn... we need some rain to move it along!
It's only June 22nd and it already feels like the long hot summer. We are in a drought condition right now and our next best chance of any kind of soaking rain will be this Wednesday. Let's hope it happens because the fields are looking pretty dire. Normally we have sweet corn for the 4th of July but because of the lack of rain and the heat it will be delayed as well as many other crops.
On a happy note, we have a wonderful share for you this week. We're excited to have new offerings of mixed beets, baby scallions, and summer squash.
As I am writing this our new tent is being erected in place of the farmstand. We finally received the part we were missing and if all goes well we may have a new CSA setup soon!
Looking forward to seeing you all :)

Hello founding members!
Can we ask a favor, would you be so kind to provide important feedback about your farm share this past summer?
This survey consists of three parts, with seperate links to each part. Please complete all three to provide the most feedback possible.
We know how much of a pain it is to do these kind of things, but we promise it will help shape and improve your 2020 farm share experience :)
Thank you from me and all of the crew!
