CSA Greetings

Hey hey CSA friends,
How have you all been? Well, we hope. For our part, we’ve been busy. It’s been an especially crazy winter, lots of renovation projects and sniffly children. And here we go again, time to mix up potting soil, fire up greenhouses, and sell our CSA shares.

As you probably know, we have moved our operation to Earth Sky Time, and we’ve changed our name accordingly. The new farm offers lots of improvements including, way more room for pick your own crops, a real barn for CSA pickups (well… that’s not done yet, but soon) and the great advantage of living right next to the fields where the crops grow. And this year we are offering a whole grain bread share. For an additional $60, shareholders will be able to pick up a loaf of freshly baked organic bread along with their veggies at Friday pickups for the entire 20 week season.

As promised we are planning a spring fever / housewarming party here on March 21st at noon. We’ve saved lots of veggies from last season, so you can look forward to a feast sure to bring back the taste of summer. We will also be happy to show you around the farm, including the greenhouses and our new kitchen. We hope you can all make it!

As the days have started to get longer, our hens’ egg production has started to pick up. So if you miss those golden yolks come on by to say hi and pick up a dozen from the fridge. The winter markets at JK Adams have come to an end, but we still have plenty of Granola and VT Goldburgers available for sale right from the house.

Finally we want to put in a plug for our new website: we just put it up this week, and it is full of great photos and info about us, the farm, the food and a quick link to sign up for the 2010 CSA.

Wishing everyone a happy healthy productive spring, and looking forward to seeing you soon,

- Oliver, Bonnie, Gavriel, Talula, Eden and all your friends down on the farm

ps. CSA Share prices remain unchanged for 3 years running, and we once again are offering an early bird discount for shares payed by the end of March. As always, we want to make it easy for you to… “eat local organic food grown by your friends!”
