News and blog
We've decided that we could use a few more sites in the Capital District and we're very excited to connect to the communities in Cohoes & Newtonville this season! If you are interested in a share at either of these sites, look under CSA Membership/Capital Distict for more information. (If you've already signed up for another share & one of these new locations would work better for you, just let us know - we're happy to make the switch.)
Check out our spring newsletter here to see what we've been doing the last few weeks.
We have lots of plants in the greenhouse waiting to get into the ground. Moved early brassicas & greens outside to harden off, onions to the cool side of the greenhouse and filled up the warm side with pepper, eggplant & tomato transplants. Hopefully the sunshine & warmer temperatures coming allow us to work in the fields next week!
We still have shares available at almost all sites - sign up now to receive a share of these vegetables this summer!
It is finally starting to feel like spring. The first set of piglets was born last week. (See a photo of the napping piglets below.) Today Shelly, Keri, Max, and Andy finished seeding over 200 trays of fresh onions and red & yellow storage onions. The warm sun is making us dream of tomatoes and sweet corn! June will be here before we know it.
Hope you are all staying warm during this cold, snowy winter. We stay busy moving snow, caring for the animals, fixing equipment, and planning for this season. It is hard to believe in about one month we will starting up in the greenhouse again. We have CSA shares available at all of our sites so tell your friends, co-workers and neighbors. They can sign up online or contact the farm firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, Wednesday, February 11th is the final winter share delivery for all Westchester sites.
Enrollment is open for all new & returning members until each site is full. Information, forms, and online signup is available by looking for your location under "CSA Membership" above. Please contact the farm if you need a paper copy sent to you or if you have any questions.
We're having some trouble with the delivery truck and have to make some changes to the deliveries for the 3rd winter share this week.
Capital District sites: Mike is on the road, but running late with the truck to Eileen Street, Glenville & Schenectady. He will get there as soon as possible, but you might have to wait a few minutes.
Westchester sites: We are postponing today's delivery until next Wednesday, February 11th. Please contact the farm if this is a problem & we will work out a refund.
NYC sites: The truck is now fixed, so delivery on Thursday as planned.
Farm: Delivery on Friday as planned.
