We have a bumper crop of root and storage vegetables this year for the rest of the regular season deliveries and for the Winter Share. You can purchase a Winter Share now by clicking on Our Products and Winter Shares. The Winter Shares are delivered once a month in December, January, and February. We will deliver a 30 lb box of storage vegetables each month with a mix of vegetables that includes: onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, parsnips, daikon radish, watermelon radish, celeriac, cabbage, and winter squash. Eat your Roxbury veggies all winter!
Join us on Saturday, September 27 for our Garlic Planting Party from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. We will have a BBQ (with our own grass fed beef) at 1:00 pm so bring a side dish or dessert to share. Meet us at the South Farm at 2343 State Route 9H in Kinderhook. Please sign up at your CSA site or contact the farm to let us know you are coming.
Our Garlic Planting Party is our way to participate in Vandana Shiva's Global Alliance for Seed Freedom's Call to Action for Seed, Food, and Earth Democracy. Our voices can join in with farmers and citizens all over the world.
We still have plenty of tomatoes, peppers, sweet corn, and green beans along with some of the early fall crops like broccoli, cauliflower, fennel, and napa cabbage. Our onions are now cured and going into storage. This week we will be harvesting winter squash. The hot, sticky weather stills feels like summer but the sun comes up later each morning so fall is on its way. We will enjoy the abundance of summer while we still have it!
There is no beef share this week as originally planned. We had to make a schedule change with the butcher, so now the next beef share will be the week of October 6 & the third share will be the week of November 17. You can find an updated meat share calendar here, or under "CSA Membership" above and click on Meat Shares.

We have finally filled our membership for this season! Thanks to everyone who spread the word about the farm & to everyone who has joined this year.
We experienced some issues with our delivery truck this morning. Steve and Mike are now back on the road and with the two of them they should make up for lost time. But, they may be running a bit late. If they aren't at your site when you arrive, hold tight, the truck will be there. We will let you know if anything changes during the delivery run. Thank you for your patience!
Our main computer crashed last week and we are still working on getting it up & running again. We hope to have everything settled by Tuesday and will be able to resume normal communication with everyone. We will email the newsletter link as soon as we can, but you can also find it here or under "Newsletters" above.
The first chicken share will be delivered the week of July 29th-August 1st. We will be sending out more information and a calendar of the remaining deliveries soon. (Our main computer crashed yesterday after a QuickBooks update and it is being repaired right now. As soon as we get it back, we will be able to send out more information.)
All other meat shares will start later in the season - beef in late August, pork & lamb in September. You will be receiving more information about those deliveries soon.
If you want to purchase individual cuts of beef, we are delivering orders every week. Just go to "Meat Orders" under "Our Products" to place your order.
Join us on Saturday, July 12 for the garlic harvest from 10 am to 2 pm. We will be grilling up some Roxbury Farm grass-fed burgers for lunch along with some farm fresh veggies. Please bring a side-dish to add to the potluck lunch. Please sign up at your pick-up site to let us know you are coming.
