This week’s share is the last of the season. Where has the time gone? Before saying good bye, Jan and I would like to say thank you. Thanks very much for being a part of our CSA. We hope that your eating has been a little healthier and that you have enjoyed being part of your neighborhood CSA community. Your membership in our CSA provides good, meaningful employment for those of us who work on the farm, and it keeps the 96 acres we call home green, organic and productive. Thanks to all of you for giving us the opportunity to pursue the craft we love. I’d also like to thank the volunteers who make the CSA work. The men and women in your neighborhood who organize the CSA – the “core group” – deserve a special shout out. They work on newsletters and member recruitment, site management, and work-shift coordination, and without their dedication and hard work, our CSA wouldn’t exist. Thank you!

We are always working to be better farmers and to make Windflower Farm a better business. So, as part of our ongoing education, we’ll be off to two different conferences this winter where we’ll review our farming practices and compare notes with other producers. And, of course, we want to make sure we are growing the kinds of shares you want. To that end, we ask that you take a few minutes to fill out our survey. It will be ready for viewing in the evening of October 30th. The link is here: https://windflowerfarm.wufoo.com/forms/q1v0qpbx1hrniig/

More winter share information: The first winter share will arrive on Saturday, November 18th giving you plenty of time to clean out your refrigerator. The share is delivered on four Saturdays during the fall and winter (11/18, 12/16, 1/20 and 2/10), and includes fresh organic greens (kales, spinach, tatsoi, Swiss chard and more) from our greenhouses, local pears and apples, our own organic storage vegetables (squashes, onions, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, potatoes, etc.), and a variety of little treats, including the Borden’s cider, our own homemade jam, popcorn and our own Black Turtle Beans. The signup form contains more detailed information, and it’s available here: https://windflowerfarm.wufoo.com/forms/m1xr27rk05nzoa8/.

We hope you have enjoyed your shares as much as we have enjoyed producing them.

Please stay in touch – we love your letters!

Our warmest regards, Jan and Ted
