Main Share CSA – July 22 2018

Three years ago now the farm crew planted a small orchard of peaches and this week they began to harvest them. They might be a little small (we need to do a little more thinning) but they are delicious. Sweet and juicy only begins to describe them. If you need to gorge yourself on something, I would vote for the peaches!

Up until now, we have dug them with a machine, crated them in the field, and then walked them through what feels like beach sand to a 16 bushel bin. As you can imagine it was back breaking. Now we just stand there and let the machine mow the plants, dig the potatoes and the conveyor sends them into the bin. All we have to do it sort the rocks out. This make potato harvesting pleasant and will save the crews energy for other tasks that need to be done. It will also save a few trips to PT or the chiropractor. HURRAY!

It has been wonderful seeing all of you at the farm as you enjoy the summer. From the beginning, our goal was to create a space that we could share with the community – and all of you are a part of that. We wanted to offer good food and a space for people to engage with nature and farming. And over the years, we’ve realized that people have similar questions. How do I preserve the produce I’ve picked? Is it hard to make pickles? Can you teach me how to can the sauce I have made from all these tomatoes??

It was a glorious week to be working outside with perfect temperatures and low humidity. That doesn’t mean that it was all wine and roses though. Steve, our farm manager, is a list maker and task master and he gets the best out of his crew and they respect him for it. The list was long but it’s Friday and they only have a few more things to accomplish before next weeks list is made on Sunday night sometime.

Main Share CSA – June 18, 2018

It’s always good to get the first week of CSA behind us. And we did it with grace. There are a couple of snags related to pick-up days but, that’s normal. Your bounty looked great and I’m sure many of you are preparing some new veggies for the first time. The beginning of the season is alway heavy on the green stuff. But honestly, we know that’s what we should be eating anyway. So do your best to find some new recipes and embrace all that is green and leafy.

Spring Share, What’s It All About?

  I love to eat greens but, I don’t know any farmer who is crazy about picking them. It’s a labor intensive endeavor that forces you to be in the moment and when you are starting up the farm for a new season it’s pretty much impossible to slow your mind down long enough to pick greens. Soooo….the Spring U-Pick Share was born with that in mind. For our CSA members, we wanted them to
