The last CSA pick-ups will be: Saturday, November 5 for Owen Sound members, and Tuesday November 8 for those who pick-up at the Farm. These dates are a bit earlier than originally planned, but are necessary based on how the fall harvest has been going.
There are also a few Winter Shares available. I have had to cut back on the number of winter shares this year as a consequence of the drought earlier this summer. Many of the storage crops are in shorter supply than other years. There are only a few spots available,
To see the August Newsletter, go to the “Newsletters” page and follow the link. Since writing this newsletter, the weather has changed from very dry to very wet. This is quite a relief, but we will continue to experience the effects of the extended dry summer with many of the fall crops.
All the cuts are now available from the pigs we raised last year:
Bacon, Plain Sausage, Pork Chops, Roasts, and Ham Roasts. Send me a message for prices and details.
Folks who pick-up at the farm can simply get what they would like, but Owen Sound members need to order ahead to pick-up at the Market. I will only bring what has been ordered.
Same as last year, Bennett Deakin from Aster Lane Bread will be taking people’s orders for bread pick-up at the farm on Tuesdays. Go to the website http://www.asterlanebread.com to see what he is offering. Contact him to get on his email list about what he is baking each week, and you can place an order for Saugeen River CSA pick-up.
Hi everyone, sorry have not posted lately, but we are always so busy this time of year when it seems everything has to be done at once. The greenhouse is full of seedlings and we are now starting to get plants out in the fields.
Two reminders… if you have only paid your $100 first payment, a second payment would be very welcome now!
Also, if you are interested in getting a $50 reduction in your share price and would like to come out an give us a hand for half a day, you can do that pretty much anytime, just give me a couple days notice. We would love to share our enthusiasm with you!!!
You can also follow our Saugeen River CSA facebook page for more quick updates.
