Here’s a letter from the farm describing what you’ll get:

Warm greetings from all of us at a cold and snowy Windflower Farm! On behalf of the entire Windflower team, I write to invite you to join us for the 2021 CSA season – our 22nd year on the farm. There is still half a foot of snow outside, but it’s going fast, spring is just around the corner, and in the warmth and sunshine of our greenhouses, tens of thousands of spring and summer vegetables are getting their start.

This year, we’ll be working more closely with some of our neighboring organic growers both to enhance our offerings of beans, carrots and squash and to mitigate some of the risk inherent in producing everything in one place. When we do decide to make a crop purchase, it will only be from a farmer we know and whose vegetables are certified organic.

At Windflower Farm, we offer optional shares of brown eggs from the Davis’s pastured hens, and fresh fruits from our farm and throughout the Hudson Valley. New this year, we will be offering maple items from the Davis family. More details about all of these shares can be found by following the sign-up link below. I am sorry to say that we will not be offering a cut flower share this year – Jan will instead be spending the year to work on a long-postponed art project.

Our veteran farm crew is returning, and most are already busy in the greenhouse. They are not only experienced and responsible vegetable growers, but they have completely embraced the new protocols around Covid-19. As a result, the team has stayed healthy throughout the pandemic and we feel we are able to deliver a safe vegetable share to you each and every week of the season.

Our thanks to everyone who made last year’s CSA season a success. Food safety has been a primary concern of ours from the beginning. Our best management practices are informed by the latest information from the CDC and Cornell University Extension. We will continue to pre-box your shares in our safe facilities at the farm. In that way, we will be reducing the food handling chain and your exposure to risk. Your produce boxes and egg cartons can be returned to the farm to be safely reused or recycled.

Members of the CSA will get 22 weekly deliveries of fresh, organically grown herbs, greens and seasonal vegetables of all kinds from our solar powered farm in the upper Hudson Valley. You’ll get bicolor sweet corn, tomatoes galore, colorful peppers, salad greens of every kind, cucumbers, carrots, squashes, red onions, shallots, broccoli, red cabbage, fingerling potatoes, fresh green beans, dill, cilantro, basil and much, much more.

Why join a CSA? You’ll get to eat the freshest of local vegetables and you’ll be exposed to some new vegetables and new ways of preparing them. You’ll develop a relationship with the farmers who grow your food and the practices they use, largely through weekly newsletters and Instagram postings this year, and through farm visits once the pandemic is behind us. Perhaps best of all, you’ll get to be part of a community of your neighbors with a common interest in food, health and sustainability.

We hope you’ll join us for the 2021 season, and we thank you for your generous support of our farm!
