Farm Update, January/February 2015
"What do vegetable farmers do in the winter?" This is a question I am often asked. The answer is, we do a lot! This is the season of scheming and dreaming, putting together seed orders and crop rotation plans, hiring the new crew, and even taking some mornings to sleep in. We continue to deliver pesto to City Market/Onion River Coop and the Intervale Food Hub as well. We hope you are getting a chance to play outside in the snow, and are dreaming of summer vegetables like we are.
This year, we are looking forward to great partnerships with area restaurants and dining service groups. You will be able to find our fresh, organic produce at Wake Robin (Shelburne), Barkeaters Restaurant (Shelburne), the Basin Harbor Club (Vergennes), City Market/Onion River Coop, through the Intervale Food Hub CSA, and the Burlington Farmers' Market. We're excited to be working with these folks again this year.
Sign ups for our own Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program are now open! We run a free-choice CSA, meaning you get to pick the vegetables you want, when you want them, at a 10% savings over our normal retail prices. Find out more by reading our brouchure, and sign up on our website.
Thanks for reading, and for supporting your local farm!
