Greetings and here we go! Yes, the winter CSA is starting this Wednesday, November 21st. We still have PLENTY of winter shares available – tell your friends, family, and, depending on you persuasion, your enemies. (Scratch that, you probably don't want such healthy enemies, bad strategy.) We think that the winter share is going to extra great this year with all of the flexibility that we’ve worked into it. This first distribution will look almost exactly like last week's vegetables because the weather is so mild. You can take two bags from where ever you want in the barn, that is, there are no "sides", you just take two bags total from the barn.
WE'VE DECIDED TO ADD ONE MORE DISTRIBUTION TO THE WINTER CSA (DATES LISTED BELOW). SO, THERE ARE NOW EIGHT DISTRIBUTION DAYS TO CHOOSE FROM, AND A SHARE PAYS FOR SIX. TO STATE THE OBVIOUS, YOU CAN NOW MISS TWO DISTRIBUTIONS AND STILL GET YOUR FULL MONEY'S WORTH.
NUTS AND BOLTS
* Distribution is at the farm.
* Distributions are every other Wednesday, and supply 2 weeks worth of food.
* Main distribution days are: 11/21, 12/5, 12/19, 1/2, 1/16, 1/30, 2/20, & 3/6
* Distribution is from 2-6 pm on the main distribution days.
* If you have purchased a pre-boxed share you may pick up you share from 9-5, Thurs, Fri, & Sat following the main day.
* If you need us to we will box a share for you, even if you have not pre-purchased one. Please let us know that you need on by noon of distribution day, and the boxing costs $6.
* There are 8 distributions and a share pays for 6, so choose the 6 dates that work best for you. No need to tell us which distribution you are going to miss. We hope this accommodates your winter travel plans and a snow date. You may certainly come to all 8 distributions, it just costs more.
*We will always have eggs available for purchase at distribution. You can buy as many as you could possibly use – we have lots. Eggs store easily for 2 weeks, so buy a 2 week supply. The chickens are happy in their light filled greenhouse out on one of the oat and pea pastures. We leave the door of the chicken greenhouse open all the time, so they go in and out all winter. The greenhouse is cozy with lots of loose hay covering the floor and mounded up the sidewalls. We need egg cartons – bring them on over, we’ll take all you’ve got.
