YOUR WEEKLY CSA GUIDE
Evening garlic crop inspection in the back fields
Welcome to WEEK 1, it's finally here! Are you excited? We are beyond pumped to be on this journey with all of you! So... buckle up, and here we grow :)
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 getting the fields prepped. We laid miles of plastic and planted thousands of seedlings and seeds. All of this while building another high tunnel and grooming for a greenhouse. It was a lot of rainy day 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 many dark til' dark days. I want to thank my crew and everyone who helped get us to this pivotal point. You are amazing.
As many of you know this season is off to a rainy start with very few days of sun. Luckily, we were able to plant our first and second settings of crops. The days we did have warm sunny weather it definitely helped move things along, but we are just about a week behind schedule.
Although your shares are choice selected and we try to make every effort to fulfill vegetable production, unfortunately we will not be able to double-up on the items you like for the ones you don't this week. If you truly do not like an item, please let us know and we will pass it along or you can swap it with another share holder. We are in this together. This is the "risk" versus the "reward" we talked about during the sign-up process. Mother Nature is really calling the shots right now.
On a positive note, when the warmer weather arrives and stays, and everything begins to come in as it should, we will be sure to make up for it and pass along the bounty.
Thank you again for investing in our farm! See you soon!

THE LITTLE TOMATO PLANT
We included a tomato plant in your share in hopes that you would take your CSA to the next level. We encourage you to plant and take care of the seedling until it matures and bares fruit. Whether it's in a pot on your deck, in your garden, or by itself somewhere in your yard, please take a moment while you are watering, feeding, pruning, or picking fruit, that we did this together. Savor it. Really think about what you are doing and know we share this common idea for a greater good.
When you arrive you will find several value added products on display. These items will be an additional purchase and separate from your farm share. We will have a limited supply on hand, but most items will also be available for preorder prior to your Tuesday and Friday pickups at button below.
All products are sourced locally and every purchase will support a farm or local business.
