CSA Pick-up please reply! and Bread and Chicken!

A reminder that next week, June 26 is the first CSA pick up at the farm from 3-6 pm and the first Owen Sound pick-up will be Saturday, June 30.  Many members still have not replied to this posting (maybe you’re not getting it), which means I will have to spend a day calling folks…  Please let others know.

Also, for those picking up at the farm on Tuesday’s, once again there will be bread available by order from Aster Lane Bread.  Send them an email: orders@asterlanebread.com to place your order and get on their email list.

Also, new this year: Chicken will be available!  Many of you may remember Shiying who apprenticed here in 2016.  She is farm sitting this year close by and is raising pastured meat chickens.  She will have whole birds and cuts available starting the July 3rd CSA pick-up.  Please contact her directly to get more details, but she can have it here for you to pick-up when you get your share.  Shiying Lu: 647 988 4549 lu.shiying@outlook.com

First CSA pick-up!

The first Tuesday on farm CSA pick up will be June 26 from 3 – 6 pm.  The first Owen Sound Market pick-up will be June 30 from 8 am to noon.  Remember to bring your own bags or boxes.  There will be lots to feed your inner rabbit!  Please reply to this to let me know you get the message.

Thank you to those who came out to help plant, and to all of you who contributed to welcoming our new horse Jimmy to the farm.  Once I have time, I’ll get some photos up.

 

A New Horse!

Many of you may have seen the farm’s Facebook posting that our lead horse, Molly, passed away of a stroke on the May long weekend.  She is pictured working on the post farther down this page.  This has created an urgent need for a new horse on the farm, as I am only set up to make beds for planting with the horses.  A new horse will arrive today, but the farm cannot afford the unexpected Capital Cost right now. I’m putting out a call for folks to make a Capital Contribution if they have not already, and perhaps contributing a bit more if they have, and are able to.  I have written a quick 2 page newsletter giving more details which you can find on the “Newsletters” page.  I’ve also posted the 2017 cash flow summary to put the capital needs in perspective.  There is some important information in the newsletter, and I apologize for springing this out so fast, but this is the busiest time of year for the farm.  Thank you.
