Farm News

This week marks the end of our regular CSA season. No two seasons are ever the same, each with different successes and disappointments. The only constant is that each season feels like a lifetime. As I was recalling the season, I couldn’t believe that we started the year with Ben frantically fixing a broken radiator on one of tractors.  That really happened this year? Each day brings its own set of challenges so that broken tractor seemed so long ago.  Despite these daily challenges, we were very pleased with this season and every box we put out. We were especially excited about our spring and fall carrot crop, our selection of herbs throughout the season, trialing new crops (like radicchio, braising greens, watermelon, and long Italian sweet peppers) and having a diverse vegetable selection throughout the season. Of course, the fact that we are offering an extended season should tell you it was a good year! We hope you’ll join us for these 3 final deliveries of our organic produce– if not, thank you for your membership during the regular season!
