What’s new on the farm
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is an increasingly vital part of organic farming, and hundreds of small farms in the Northeast thrive because of CSA members like you. Thank you for being a part of our CSA – we hope you enjoyed the experience. I’d especially like to express my gratitude to the volunteers who spend countless hours organizing the CSA. Their work in recruiting members, maintaining websites, managing distributions and in performing countless other tasks is the critical stuff that makes the CSA work. If you think that you’ll be with us next year, consider joining the core group at your pick-up site.
We at the farm are celebrating our last CSA delivery. As you know, the season comes to an end this week. Victoria, our distribution coordinator, hosted us at her house around a bonfire to celebrate the end of the season. The farm team has been working long days since early March and are ready for a break. I’m very proud of them. Much of the staff will be back at it in a couple of weeks to prepare the first winter boxes. Snowfall bookended the farm season, with a couple of inches in early May, just after planting, and a couple more just last week. Candelaria and her sisters, who are new to snow, had a brief laughter filled snowball fight. Soon, they’d be in the warmth of Central Mexico. For us, there are winter projects that we’ll now have time to turn to, Jan in her studio, and Nate and me in our workshop.
Jan and I hope you have a healthy and happy fall and winter season. We look forward to seeing you before long.
Ted and Jan
