CSA membership drive
February 10, 2016—

Spring is right around the corner.  Traditionally we are in the field planting with a tractor by the end of march.  Hard to believe as it snows today.  We have a high tunnel full of spinach and lettuce that with a few days in the 40s and 50s will be lush with new growth.  By mid march we should be picking spinach.  

Now is also the time we push for CSA signups.  This year all CSA members receive 20% discount on all farmers market purchases.  We are also expanding our membership for CSA members.  Recipes and tips are supplied for the content of every weeks CSA share.  Sign up today.
