CSA Registrations Arriving Fast!
Just barely one month into recruiting season and already 15 people have signed up for a weekly or bi weekly produce box in 2011. Both new and returning members are sending in registrations to secure their spot and provide the farm with valuable winter cashflow. Returning members still have the chance to earn an early bird discount if your registration form and deposit are received by December 1st.
Called me old fashioned, but I think it’s important to have record on paper that we have made an agreement together. The registration form represents your commitment to supply funds as well as my commitment to supply top quality produce. Some members have sent me their forms by email, which I can print myself. That’s fine!
If you have sent in your form or given me a deposit, I will contact you within the following two weeks. If you do not receive an email confirmation within this time, please get in touch with me. Everyone will receive written confirmation of their enrollment.
If you don’t have the 2011 registration package yet, you can follow this link to download it.
Keep checking the website and our Facebook page for pictures and news of the farm. Although everything is still quite wet around here, work is still progressing. The property is getting a autumn facelift and the fall crops keep trickling in. Plastic covered mini-tunnels are doing a great job extending the growing season, allowing me to harvest later than ever before.
Farm store visitors can still find vegetables such as: pak choi, beets, swiss chard, kale, collard greens, potatoes, orange and multi-coloured carrots, cabbage, parsley, onions, butternut squash, pie pumpkins, leeks and green onions on the shelves. Since it is now dark so early, it’s best to arrive before 6pm. But we’re still officially open from 1pm to 7pm Tuesday to Friday and 8am to 7pm Saturdays.
If you’re making room in the shed for winter storage, make sure you think of us before throwing out your old lumber, shovel or wheelbarrow!
