Spring Growth

Spring Growth

Monday, October 25, 2010

Hello all!

I hope that everyone is enjoying this rainy Indian Summer Monday. Last week Paul and the crew worked really hard one day and got in quite a bit of rye and vetch planting. It calms me so much to look at the farm and see those newly planted patches of soil. Next spring they will grow up, without any help from us, in to a dense thatch of green. It's just nice to know that it is all taken care of and healthy.

We still have plenty of Winter CSA shares available. Get yours soon!

We also have plenty of REALLY GOOD EGGS right now.

kale, collard, chard, parsley, broccoli raab, arugula, garlic, winter squash, beets, carrots, broccoli, hot peppers, turnips, Chinese cabbage, fennel, celery, head lettuce

u-pick: CALENDULA - making a come back, kale, chard, tomatillos, hot peppers, cilantro, dill, raspberries

Hello farm friends,
Thinking about Thanksgiving yet? While still a month away, the farmers at the Good Life and Shelterbelt farms have been preparing since August, raising up rotationally pastured, organic grain-fed turkeys to delight your families this November! Even with the power of two farms producing twice as many birds as one farm alone the birds are going fast, but we still have a few left... get 'em while they last. Here's how:
Send Melissa an email at melissa@thegoodlifefarm.org to reserve your T'day bird. Please share your size preference and we'll do all that we can to ensure you get the size closest to what you requested, but we cannot make guarantees about size. Birds are $3.99/lb.
Because we are co-marketing and co-processing, we have two pick-up sites- one in Caroline at east side of Ithaca towards Shelterbelt and one in Interlaken at the Good Life. Farm pickups will be on Sunday, Nov. 21, in the afternoon. More on that after you order.

We've been holding "Visit Your Turkey" days this October for those who ordered early. If you are interested in knowing more about each farm, please do check out our websites:
www.thegoodlifefarm.org and www.shelterbeltfarm.com.
Please feel free to contact me with any other questions... more info on my website- www.thegoodlifefarm.org or call me (607) 351 3313.
Looking forward to Thanksgiving,
Melissa and Erica
The Good Life Farm and Shelterbelt Farm


This is a yummy/fast/easy recipe for using up lots of veggies in the fridge, plus it's super flexible. The recipe is vegan, but it would be easy to cook add chicken broth or sausages if you prefer. You could probably even make it in a rice cooker:
