Here’s a letter from the farm describing what you’ll get:
Spring greetings from all of us at a snowy Windflower Farm! On behalf of the core group of the Central Brooklyn CSA and the Windflower Farm team, we write to invite you to join us for the 2019 CSA season – our 20th year on the farm. There might still be a half 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 summer vegetables and salad greens are getting their start.
Members of the CSA will get 22 weekly deliveries of fresh, organically grown herbs, greens and seasonal vegetables of all kinds from our farm in the upper Hudson Valley. You’ll get bicolor sweet corn, heirloom and red beefsteak tomatoes, colorful peppers, salad greens of every kind, cucumbers, carrots, red and yellow onions, broccoli, cabbage, potatoes, fresh green beans and much, much more.
We received wonderful feedback from last year’s end-of-season survey, and we plan to implement many of the suggestions we received. If all goes well, we’ll send more shallots in place of so many yellow onions and more beets and carrots in place of so many potatoes. We’ll broaden or herb lineup to include more dill, cilantro, Rosemary and ginger. We’ll increase the bunch sizes of greens like kale and Swiss chard and we’ll send more spinach. We’ll increase our green zucchini planting and we’ll send more of those delectable ‘Delicata’ squashes in the fall. With a veteran staff returning to the farm, and a new well, we hope that this 20th growing season will be our best ever.
At Windflower Farm, we also offer optional shares of our own organically grown fresh-cut flowers, brown eggs from a neighbor’s pastured hens, and fresh fruits from our farm and throughout the Hudson Valley.
We hope you’ll join us. Please click this link to learn more and to purchase a CSA share: https://windflowerfarm.wufoo.com/forms/sbo8oxs182ys5f/
As a CSA member, you will get to eat the freshest of produce and you’ll be exposed to new vegetables and new ways of cooking; you will get to visit the farm and develop a relationship with the farmers who grow your food; and you’ll learn more about how your food is grown via our weekly newsletters. You can find pictures of the farm and follow our progress on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/windflowerfarm/). Perhaps best of all, you’ll get to be part of a community of neighbors with a common interest in food, health and sustainability.
We hope you’ll join us for the 2019 season.
Ted and Jan Blomgren
