Winter distribution primer

Winter season is starting soon! If you’d like to join our wait list, or are an existing member and want to tack on eggs or a maple share, email us by Saturday December 7th.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Distributions are ONE HOUR ONLY, 12:30 – 1:30 PM. We pack up promptly at 1:30 because it’s cold out and we’re all volunteering time out of our tight schedules. We can’t make exceptions and we can’t hold on to anything for later pickup. Sorry! But if you know ahead of time that you won’t make it during the one hour window, just send a friend to pick up your share for you. Or don’t–unclaimed food gets donated to the Mary House soup kitchen!
  • We distribute out of the garden rain or shine or snow. The only exception is if farmer Ted’s truck can’t make it down from the farm because of unplowed roads. We’ll be in touch if that’s the case.
  • You’re welcome to carry your share home in the box it comes in. But if you bring tote bags to transfer your stuff into, Ted is happy to get the boxes sent back up so he can reuse them next month. He’ll also reuse egg cartons and rubber bands so bring those back to us too please.
  • Pretend the tomatoes and corn aren’t in that illustration up top. It’s winter and Windflower Farm is upstate! We won’t be getting tomatoes or corn in our boxes 🙂

Come visit the farm!

Like they do every year, Farmers Ted and Jan are inviting us up to Windflower Farm for the weekend of September 7-8, to peel back the curtain on how they grow things, which latest machinery their sons have converted to electric, what kinds of organic, non-chemical techniques they’ve been employing to keep pests at bay… and much more! We also make a big bonfire on Saturday night, have a group potluck, and sometimes hit a swimming hole. Email us for info or to RSVP!

One bouquet, done three ways

Our members look pretty thrilled with this week’s bouquets of statice (grown by farmer Ted’s wife Jan). Details on our flower share here!

It’s My Park Day 2019

Our CSA is special in lots of ways! One of them is that we run our distributions out of a beautiful flower-filled community garden. Come join us for It’s My Park Day, which will be happening at the M’Finda Kalunga Garden, the same spot where we distribute veggies June through October on Thursday evenings.
