When The World Is Cold…

January 14th, 2019 · No Comments · Uncategorized

When the world is cold, the will is warm.  A healthy dose of coffee and staying busy with seeding schedules, field plans, chicken chores, and seed orders (see photo) help keep me from getting lazy during the month of January (the moon of Excel).

Couple exciting updates for 2019 to consider when you are renewing your CSA membership:  First of all we are offering for the first time ever a Spring CSA!  We have an extra high tunnel on the farm now which gives us a little extra room for harvesting in the months of April and May (always our most difficult months for cash flow).  We are also experimenting with overwintering lettuce and spinach in the field under “low-tunnels”.  We are excited to be able to offer this share to a small group of members (maxing out at 40 shares for the spring so we don’t get ahead of ourselves).  Check out the details here about logistics:  Spring CSA

Secondly, we are super pumped to be sourcing our meat share from a new farm this year.  Katie Steere, currently from Chepachet, soon to be relocating to Cranston, runs an impressive livestock operation and is offering her products at a discount to our CSA members.   These shares (half or full) will allow our members to shop directly off of Katie’s website and receive delivery once/month to our CSA pick-ups.  Check out Deep Roots Farm for more info about Katie and her products.

Hope Everyone is doing well and looking forward to snow which hopefully will be coming soon.  Best Wishes as the new year chugs along.  Get cold, get warm, and stay productive.
