We are extremely grateful for the continued support that we have received. We offer a $50 discount to CSA members that commit to the season early because it aids us with planning for the season. We can also take advantage of some early payment discounts on supplies. These upfront dollars are necessary for us to purchase supplies and keep the farm running. Our farm is solely funded by 100 CSA Memberships. The CSA share has gone up a few dollars for each week of produce received to help cover our increased expenses. We always strive to provide you with an abundance of high quality nutritious produce. Thank you for allowing us to grow with you.

The boys were here this past weekend and helped get the arches on the new hoop house. We still need to get the base board wood, end wall framing, and plastic on. We had a delay in construction since we were not sent the proper screws and had great difficulty finding them. There is a lot of end of season field clean up going on around here now. Cover crops that were already planted are growing great. We also still have the garlic planting to complete in the next few weeks. The fall chill is in the air and there is still quite a bit to accomplish before the deep winter hits.
Thank you for supporting our small farm!
